Kate went out with a bang! I am kind of sad we aren’t going to get to read about how this new world is going to be. At least we have some Hugh books to look forward to. I am hoping that maybe Conlan will make a debut in them because I feel like his story was not wrapped up for me.  Read more

Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

Oh boy, where to start. As the final book in the Kate Daniels series, Magic Triumphs is everything I hoped it would be. It ties up the main storylines satisfactorily, settles Kate’s daddy issues in a clever way, and leaves an opening for more adventures with supporting characters. I really enjoyed this, and can’t think of a better way to draw the series to an end.

Review: Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews

May Contain Spoilers

While I was excited for the release of Iron and Magic, I was extremely skeptical that Hugh could ever achieve a believable redemption. This guy has been awful for almost the entirety of the Kate Daniels series. He almost starved Christopher to death and left him in a cage of his own filth, he had a favorite character murdered, and he whisked Kate away to Mishmar, where she almost died. He cheerfully invaded cities, ordering the murder of the citizens, and did many other unsavory, non-heroic acts. How then, could this rotten to the core guy be redeemed?

Manga Review: Happy Marriage?! V 2 by Maki Enjoji


May Contain Spoilers

I love the romance genre, and all of the associated angst, which is why I love Harlequin Romances so much. Happy Marriage?! would be right at home over at Harlequin. It has all of the tropes needed for one of their books. We have a powerful, wealthy businessman, a poor, hard working heroine who is trying to pay off family debts, and a marriage of convenience. Who doesn’t enjoy all of that?

Audio Review: Kodiak’s Claim by Eve Langlais


May Contain Spoilers

I am been having a very difficult time finishing anything longer than a graphic novel. I was scrolling through the titles included in my Audible Romance package subscription, and decided to give Kodiak’s Claim, as well as a zombie book, a listen. Since I had a lengthy drive to a horse show, I needed something to hold my attention. I enjoy shifter books, and I haven’t read many with bears, so I clicked the borrow button.

Manga Review: Happy Marriage?! V 1 by Maki Enjoji @shojobeat


May Contain Spoilers

This is a free read at Vizmedia.com, so, after verifying that most of the others volumes in the series are also available at my local library, I downloaded it to my Viz app. After all of the sports and fight manga I’ve been reading, I needed a little break, and a romcom looked like a good choice.
