Audio Review: As Lie the Dead by Kelly Meding

  Evy is the best kick ass heroine I’ve meet since meeting Kate Daniels! Maybe even more so since Kate carries a big sword and Evy finds herself without a weapon in most fights and add the fact that she is still trying to figure out how to move in a body that’s was not her own; one that is not trained to fight. Yet she still manages to stay on top. Evy is a shit talker but she backs it up. But she has a really hard time kick butt in As Lie the Dead since she blacks out like every another chapter; waking up in strange places. But during these blackouts we get to see more of Evy’s past in her memories in […]

Review: Big Game by C.J. Ellisson

Review: Big Game by C.J. Ellisson

Posted July 10, 2012 by Jennifer in Book Review | 3 Comments

The title Big Game made me think we were going to get mostly the story about Jon, Vivan’s sexy werewolf, vampire servant but I was wrong. Big Game really does sum up the book. There are so many games going on in this plot from the werewolves that come to the inn to hunt, to the games that the Tribunal vampires play at the Seat of Darkness. C.J. Ellisson sticks with her multi POV for Big Game that she used in the other books in the series. It sounds like it would be a hard read to follow but I actually like it. It’s like watching a soap opera. You get to read a scene from one POV and then you which to another scene […]

Review: The Cowboy and The Vampire by Clark Hays & Kathleen McFall

Review: The Cowboy and The Vampire by Clark Hays & Kathleen McFall

Posted July 8, 2012 by Jennifer in Book Review | 7 Comments

The Cowboy and The Vampire is about good and evil. It has a unique, somewhat religious twist to the vampire myth; where the humans are referred to as Adamites by the vampires. The story is told from both Lizzie and Tucker’s point of views. I enjoyed Tucker’s side a little more since there was some tongue in cheek humor and we got to see some pretty funny side characters through his eyes. The back of the book states that The Cowboy and The Vampire is “A Darkly Romantic Mystery”, well there were some romantic aspects but it was not the main focus (aka no smexy scenes). As far as the Mystery part….not so much. And yeah there were some dark parts but it’s by no […]
