First of all, this book is NOT about the Underworld. It’s about a girl who spends 20 minutes in the Underworld then spends the rest of the story adjusting to life after a NDE (near death experience). I cannot express how disappointed I am that the Underworld parts were so tiny. There were far too many things that were either absurd or made absolutely no sense. 1) John’s age didn’t add up. When she was in the cemetery for her […]

I love mythology! That was what drew my interest to this one. I think my expectations were a little too high, though. It was a pleasure to work with Kelly on her blog tour, so it makes me sad to say I was disappointed with Touch of Death. It’s so, so hard to write a not-so-great review for an author you like, and pretty much everyone else loved it…maybe it’s just me :(  Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it […]

Oh lord. Honestly, I’m not sure how I even finished this book. Morbid curiosity? The need to see liars and cheaters have everything blow up in their faces? Who knows. But somehow I managed to stick it through to the end. So, the characters. Good God. I don’t think I’ve ever met so many characters I wanted to flog in one single book. So many vapid, shallow characters! We’ll start with Em. I despised her. With the fire of a […]

While the first book was good, I believe I enjoyed this one much more! It didn’t have a real lot of depth, but it was a cute and fun read. The fact that there are THREE changing points of view in this one really makes me appreciate Tera’s writing style. A few times I forgot momentarily who I was reading, but for the most part it was very well done. The voices were quite similar, but each of the girls […]

I love mythology! To be honest though, I didn’t really know anything about Norse mythology except what I saw in the movie Thor. Sad, I know. But I think that increased my enjoyment of Valkyrie Rising in the long run, because I got to learn a few things about Valkyries! It started off a bit slow, but I didn’t get bored because the mythology was enough to keep me interested. I had a bit of trouble connecting with the story at […]

I love mythology. A lot. And although I haven’t read up on the Persephone myth all that much, it fascinates me. I was sure I was going to love this. So sure. Perhaps I set my expectations sky high, or perhaps there was too much hype for this book, but I was extremely disappointed. My main problem? Kate. I couldn’t stand her. She was alright in the first half or so, average and nothing special to speak of…but not necessarily irritating, […]
