    Review: “River Marked,” Patricia Briggs

    September 14, 2017

    As it’s the sixth book in the Mercy Thompson series, you could be forgiven for thinking that River Marked is more of the same – werewolves, vampires, fae… but Patricia Briggs manages to keep injecting her…

    Review: “Silver Borne,” Patricia Briggs

    January 14, 2017

    The fifth book in the Mercy Thompson series wasn’t as strong plot-wise as some of the others in the series, but it was still an enjoyable read. It was a steady continuation of the world Patricia…

    Review: “Bone Crossed,” Patricia Briggs

    January 5, 2017

    Stepping up again from the last book in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series, Bone Crossed is an unputdownable read. All our favourite characters return once more for a high stakes power play between werewolves, vampires and…

    Review: “Iron Kissed,” Patricia Briggs

    January 3, 2017

    Iron Kissed is a damned near perfect example of urban fantasy. With a mystery that will keep you guessing and a great mix of fae, werewolf and other supernatural beings, this series just keeps getting better…

    Review: “Blood Bound,” Patricia Briggs

    January 2, 2017

    Though I found Blood Bound to be a bit of a slower read than its predecessor, it certainly cultivated my love for Mercy Thompson and the series in general. The plot was more interesting, the stakes…

    Review: “Moon Called,” Patricia Briggs

    December 29, 2016

    Moon Called was exactly what I was in the mood for: a gritty urban fantasy with werewolves, vampires – the whole shebang. Reminiscent of Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton, Patricia Briggs delivers a fast-paced, supernatural…

    Review: “The Rising,” Kelley Armstrong

    June 28, 2016

    The Rising was a disappointment. Having liked – but not been completely head over heels for – the rest of the series, I was hoping that the finale would really make Kelley Armstrong’s Darkness Rising series…

    Review: “The Calling,” Kelley Armstrong

    June 26, 2016

    With its non-stop action and fast pace, The Calling was a worthy continuation of Kelley Armstrong’s Darkness Rising series. Though it was not at all what I imagined a sequel to be (in terms of plot)…

    Review: “Bloodrose,” Andrea Cremer

    January 31, 2016

    Bloodrose marks the final chapter in the Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer – as told by Calla’s perspective, anyway. Though it was probably the most enjoyable of the series plot-wise, I wasn’t entirely thrilled by the…

    Review: “Wolfsbane,” Andrea Cremer

    January 29, 2016

    I was sorely disappointed with Wolfsbane. I had been expecting Andrea Cremer to build upon the relationships and characters introduced in the first book, but I didn’t expect Wolfsbane to pretty much be an all-out ‘infodump’…
