Review and Giveaway: Night Child by Lisa Kessler

I jumped into Night Child without really knowing anything about it.  I was in the mood for a PNR, and lo and behold, this blog tour came up.  I’ve been trying to challenge myself by reading outside of my normal range (cowboys and zombies!), and while I was a little worried because this is the final book in the series, I had no trouble keeping up with the action.  And let me tell you, there is some great action here!  We have the Egyptian god of chaos, toting around a massive chip on his shoulder, and the Mayan god of sacrifice struggling to save his people, the Night Walkers, from destruction at the hands of that very angry Egyptian god.    Read more

Review: Marked by Hades by Reese Monroe


May Contain Spoilers


I wanted to like Marked by Hades better than I did.  I thought there were some pacing issues that hindered my enjoyment.  Maybe it’s because I couldn’t stand Pario, the evil villain of the piece.  Pario is a demon, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow Lucifer so the demons can have their merry way without his interference.  Pario believes that Yvonne knows the location of the weapons needed to overthrow the lord of Hell.  Yvonne has been banished from the underworld for helping Sadie, a Gatekeeper, escape after she was captured by the demons.  Yvonne has no memory of her other life, when she was Dyre, a demon.  The setup is a little complicated if you are jumping into the series blind, but the confusion doesn’t last long.  I was able to read this as a standalone without too much difficulty.
