Review: Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews

May Contain Spoilers

I love this series. Each book builds on the previous installment, dragging the reader deeper into the world of post Shift Atlanta. The Pack, Kate, the People, and even the Order – after seven volumes of adventures with these characters, you can’t help but get caught up in their lives, and sadly, sometimes their deaths. I have my favorites, and I approach each new book with the same apprehension. Will one of my favorites give up their life so Kate and Curran can live to fight another day?

Review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

Review by Poo Penny

May Contain Spoilers

As much as I liked this book, I was also disappointed in it. What was with the Spartacus retelling in there? I really enjoyed the first book, so imagine my surprise when it took me almost 2 weeks to read this. OK, that is partially my fault, I used to read 2 books a day, now I’m lucky if I can get through 2 chapters a day. Working really takes a toll on my ability to just plow through a book. Read more

Review: Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

I’ve been trying to pace myself because the final Kate Daniels book isn’t due out until May 2018. But screw that! I am enjoying these so much, and when I get in a reading slump (which I believe is partly due to the wonder of Kate Daniels), I keep going back to these. The characters have all earned a special place in my reading heart, and I love catching up with them in every volume.

Review: Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost



May Contain Spoilers

Wah! I was disappointed with Destined for an Early Grave. It seemed so forced and pointless, compared to the previous installments of the series (which, let’s face it, are nothing more than escapist shenanigans. There’s a naughty vampire – let’s kill him). Let’s make an excuse for Cat and Bones to argue, break up, and get back together again. Sigh. Not what I was hoping for.

Review: Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

Kate Daniels has a really scary family. Her father is thousands of years old, and he kills without a thought. Her step-father taught her how to fight and how to survive against the monsters that would be unleashed against her, should her existence be discovered. And in Magic Bleeds, Kate has a not so touching introduction to her Auntie Erra, a terrifying warrior whose closest companions are pestilence and death.

Review: Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones

Review by Poo Penny

Ohhhhhhhhh Charley. And Reyes. This book was very fun. Charley and Reyes have some interesting communication problems to overcome. Ya know, with Charley being all pregnant and stuff, which you find out at the beginning of the book, no spoilers here. And the 12 hellhounds are after her, which apparently are bigger than normal hellhounds, so Reyes insists on being her sexy bodyguard.
The chemistry is great, the action is great. This is a great book. I keep thinking I am going to get tired of this series, and boom, the next installment just keeps me interested.

Review: Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews

May Contain Spoilers

While I am beating myself up for not reading the Kate Daniels books previously, this series is exactly what I need at this time in my life. They are fun, with tons of action, and an undeniable chemistry between Curran and Kate. Reality just kind of fades into the background when I read anything by the writing duo that make up Ilona Andrews, and I celebrate the backlist I have yet to explore. Between Kate Daniels and the newly discovered Cat and Bones by Jeaniene Frost, I am ready for a binge on tough, kick ass heroines, and lethal, deadly heroes.
