Posted October 17, 2012 by Jonetta in Book Review | 1 Comment

  The story begins a few weeks after Abby drank the Lethe water and she is living in the Faery Court with no memory of herself other than what Talivar has shared with her: her name and their plan to marry. When she’s contacted by Brystion in the Dreaming, he sets off a chain of events that have devastating results for just about everyone. Abby doesn’t get many breaks but continues to think her way through each challenge using her extraordinary instincts and heart. As with the first two books, the action is almost continuous, the fantasy is creative, the villains are diabolical and no one seems to be immune from potential harm. Abby still is torn between Tavilar and Brystion, loving both of them […]

Review: A Sliver of Shadow By Allison Pang

If you haven’t read the first book, Stop! There are events discussed here from that story that may be spoilers for you. The story picks up six months from the end of the first book. Abby is coping with (or trying to) her breakup with Brystion. Moira leaves for the Faery Court and soon after, all hell breaks loose and Abby’s in charge. Talivar is still staying with Abby as her personal bodyguard, along with Phineas the unicorn and Benjamin, Moira’s baby who she left in Abby’s care. Unlike the first book, this story takes off seemingly from the first page. Abby still has missteps but she’s still got very good instincts and has gained the respect of those OtherFolk in Portsmyth. When an Elven […]

Review: A Brush of Darkness by Allison Pang

I had two separate experiences with this book: the beginning, where you are mired in a world that you know nothing about and are in a state of near constant confusion; and, the second half where you’re so riveted by the story you can’t turn the pages fast enough. Funny how my feelings seemed to mirror that of the heroine, Abby Sinclair, and I believe this may have been the designed effect of the author and pretty brilliant. I suffered through the beginning, almost to the point of quitting but was utterly hooked by the second half of the story and settled in for a very interesting ride. The story begins with Abby continuing to behave as if everything is normal, even though it’s been […]

Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison is the consummate soldier. His first priority is keeping the men under his leadership alive. He meets Jen St. James, a nurse assigned to the same base in Fort Hood, Texas, the night before his deployment to Iraq and shares a single passionate kiss than neither of them can forget. Months later, Shane becomes injured in a near fatal attack and ends up in the hospital back home under Jen’s care. Jen is a breast cancer survivor and understands first hand the mental and physical struggle to recover. I loved both of these characters. Shane is an alpha male on steroids but what makes him so appealing is his absolute courage and commitment to the men assigned to him. This […]

The beginning of this story is its weakest as we are barely introduced to the main characters and the focus is on Logan trying to get close to Pepper. We have no idea why she’s being sheltered by her brother or the details of her personal story. It’s obvious that she’s hiding behind a frumpy disguise and her initial relationship with Logan is bizarre. It would be okay if this aspect of the story moved at a quicker pace but it took much too long to develop. But, if you can make it through this tedium, the story then shifts into gear at almost breakneck speed and really delivers! As if being undercover isn’t stressful enough, Logan also has to contend with departmental corruption and […]
