Review: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance, edited by Trisha Telep

The Mam­moth Book of Para­nor­mal Romance by Trisha Telep

My review

rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsI’m extreme­ly sur­prised by how much I enjoyed this anthol­o­gy! I picked it up intend­ing to just read the sto­ries by authors I know I like—Kelley Arm­strong, Ilona Andrews, Car­rie Vaughn, Hol­ly Lisle, Jeaniene Frost, Maria […]

Review: At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

My review

rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsCat is def­i­nite­ly com­ing into her own now, and her rela­tion­ship with Bones is por­trayed far more health­ily than most in the para­nor­mal romance cat­e­go­ry. I love the fact that she demands that he per­mit her to stand as […]

Unusu­al Sus­pects: Sto­ries of Mys­tery & Fan­ta­sy by Dana Stabenow

My review

rat­ing: 3 of 5 starsAnoth­er uneven anthol­o­gy. I still have it in my hands, so I’ll try to hit each sto­ry briefly.

Lucky” by Char­laine Har­ris — Sook­ie is much eas­i­er to take in short form. I can’t help […]

Review: Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre

Blue Dia­blo by Ann Aguirre

My review

rat­ing: 5 of 5 star­sI can’t think of a thing that wasn’t right in Blue Dia­blo. I can think of one thing that made it stand head and shoul­ders above much of what I’ve read late­ly: Aguirre knows that sex­u­al ten­sion can be much […]

The Parable of the Shower

The Para­ble of the Show­er by Leah Bobet is an absolute­ly hilar­i­ous short sto­ry.

The angel of the LORD cometh upon you in the show­er at the worst pos­si­ble moment: one hand placed upon thy right but­tock and the oth­er bear­ing soap, radio blar­ing, hum­ming a hea­then song of sin.

Thanks to Sarah Mon­ette […]

Partners in Necessity’ by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

ETA: This oth­er­wise cryp­tic post was a response to a Plinky prompt that asked what book I’d take if I were called to jury duty today. I can’t imag­ine why their “share with blog” func­tion doesn’t include the prompt!

I wouldn’t wor­ry too much, as I can be fair­ly sure that I’ll nev­er be PICKED […]

Review: Skin Trade

Skin Trade by Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton

My review

rat­ing: 3 of 5 star­sI kept say­ing I was giv­ing up on Hamilton’s books, then giv­ing her just one more chance as each nov­el came out, hop­ing that at some point she’d give up the porn and write real nov­els again. With this vol­ume, […]

Review: Mean Streets

Mean Streets by Jim Butch­er

My review

rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsMean Streets is one of the best antholo­gies I’ve read in a while. It only has four dif­fer­ent pieces in it, but they’re all novel­las, and all by strong, expe­ri­enced writ­ers. I don’t think any of them are here rid­ing […]

Review: Blood From Stone

Blood from Stone by Lau­ra Anne Gilman

My review

rat­ing: 5 of 5 star­sIt feels like a spoil­er, but since Gilman says this at the front of the book, I sup­pose it isn’t: Blood From Stone is the last Retriev­ers nov­el, at least for a time. She’s mov­ing on to focus […]
