Review: Stray Magic by Kelly Meding


May Contain Spoilers

I am forever in search of new Urban Fantasy to read, so when I saw Stray Magic, I decided to give it a shot. Kelly Meding is a new to me author, and I am always game for the start of a new series. This looked interesting, and I thought that Shiloh being a Federal Marshall in the Paranormal Investigations Unit could be fun. I’m always up for a good case to crack, especially if it involves missing vampires and werewolves.

Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

I have been holding off on reading Magic Shifts and Magic Binds until closer to the release of Magic Triumphs. I was experiencing another pesky reading slump, when nothing was holding my attention other than manga, so I picked this up. It’s been sitting on my Kindle (thanks, Poo Penny!) for a long time, and I figured no time like the present. That leaves one more volume until the final Kate Daniels book is released in August. It will be sad to see the end of this series.

Early Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs @AceRocBooks


May Contain Spoilers

While Mercy Thompson is a huge favorite of mine, the Alpha and Omega series has a special place in my heart. I love how Anna and Charles have overcome difficulties to become a cohesive unit. They have come a long way from Anna’s first terrified days as Charles’ new bride. They have become a couple, they have learned to trust each other, and they will do anything to keep the other safe. I have enjoyed watching as their marriage has solidified, giving each of them strength, as well as helping to ground their wolves.

Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop @AceRocBooks


May Contain Spoilers

I loved The Others, and when I saw that Anne Bishop was continuing the series with new characters, I was beyond excited. When I started reading Lake Silence, I was a little put off that Vickie’s chapters are 1st person POV,and everyone else is 3rd POV, but I quickly got over that. She is an emotionally wounded character, the 1st person POV let me empathize with her and her painful past. Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down, and when I finished, I was bummed out. I did not want it to end, and I have come to like the citizens of Sproing and the Jumble, both human and Other. I wanted more!

Win Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

Burn-Bright_Social-Image_v4

To celebrate the upcoming release of Burn Bright, I have a copy of Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs to give away, courtesy of the publisher. I am so excited for Burn Bright, and I’m super stoked to be able to give one of you a copy of the first book in the Alpha and Omega series. This is one of my favorite series, period, and if you haven’t started it yet, I highly recommend it.

Here’s some info for the giveaway:

Giveaway is for a mass market paperback, US addresses only.

About the book:

Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer—and son—of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.
Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf—a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all of the pack.
It is recommended you read the prequel “Alpha & Omega” before reading Cry Wolf.

This is to get you ready for Burn Bright, which releases March 6. I can hardly wait!

Here is the pre-order link for Burn Bright: Amazon

Mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…
They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.
With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn..

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

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
