Book Review: Shift by Rachel Vincent

Shift (Shifters, #5) Shift by Rachel Vin­cent

My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars
I’m left with lit­tle to say that won’t be a spoil­er oth­er than, “Dan­git, why can’t more authors work in some polyamory instead of using the same old jeal­ousy-based plots?” Because I do NOT find that enter­tain­ing or inter­est­ing at ALL! Read the rest of this entry »

Book Review: Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris

Grave Secret (A Harper Connelly Mystery, #4) Grave Secret by Char­laine Har­ris

My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars
I’d say that wraps it up for this series. No, I won’t tell you why I’m say­ing that, or it’ll ruin the book for you. Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Fantasy in Death by J.D. Robb

Fantasy in Death (In Death, #30) Fan­ta­sy in Death by J.D. Robb

My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars

I doubt that most of Robb’s read­ers will be famil­iar with the oth­er books, as they’re prob­a­bly com­ing from the romance world (cross­ing over from her Nora Roberts titles) instead of the sci­ence fic­tion genre.

Book Review: Night’s Edge

Night's Edge Night’s Edge by Mag­gie Shayne

My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars
“Dancers in the Dark” by Char­laine Har­ris is set in the same uni­verse as the South­ern Vampire/Sookie Stack­house sto­ries, but with none of the incred­i­bly annoy­ing char­ac­ters. How refresh­ing! Read the rest of this entry »
