I love Angel’s character growth in this series so far and I hope she continues to become even more awesome in the next book. One thing some characters lack in other series is that they stay the same (boring!). She knows she was a looser before becoming a zombie but she is working hard to be a better…person….zombie. Yes she was a high school drop out with a shitty home life and a pill popper but unlike one of the heroines in another great urban fantasy series, she is not whiny about it. When we last left Angel she had found out some things about the zombie world but she was still pretty clueless to the bigger picture. In this sequel, she finds out more […]

Review: Trace of Moonlight by Allison Pang

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

Posted October 16, 2012 by Jonetta in Book Review | 9 Comments

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 […]
