An Interview with Ares We’re here today on a secluded Greek Isle with Ares God of War. The brawny 7 foot God before me is leisurely lounging across his Throne of Bones, his long muscular legs draped over one arm. All around us fires burns, the massive hearth behind me is fed by small trees, while in the corners of his dark cave torches burn bringing an eerie glow to the grim surroundings. Everywhere I look there is a weapon of some kind; sword, dagger, arrows, halberds, and of course, guns. The other ‘decorations’ consist of armor; brightly polished shields, breastplates, and helmets glow in the firelight to remind to be cautious and courteous to the drop-dead gorgeous man staring at me with smoldering onyx […]

Hellforged by Nancy Holzner

Hellforged by Nancy Holzner

Posted October 25, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 2 Comments

For most of Hellforged, the cast is pretty small. We don’t get to see much of the secondary characters since Vicky spends a large part of the book in Wales studying with her Aunt Mab.   The first part Hellforged is in Boston and there is something killing the zombies in Deadtown. And something even weirder is going on with Vicky’s roommate, Juliet. Vicky’s not sure if two things are connected and asks for info from Detective Daniel about the zombie cases.   Speaking of Daniel, things between him and Vicky are still just friendly until she tells him that she is leaving town for a few weeks. He gives her a toe curling kiss to remember him by while she is gone.   Kane […]

Review: Mind Over Monsters by Jennifer Harlow

Review: Mind Over Monsters by Jennifer Harlow

Posted October 19, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

Mind Over Monsters is very well written with characters I love and can’t wait to read more about them. I’ve not read many books where the author titles each chapter but I really like it, cause it sets the tone for what’s coming up and with a chapter entitled “A Machete Is a Girl’s Best Friend” you know that the book is freaky funny. Mind Over Monsters is a great urban fantasy read with mystery, some gore (it’s going to get messy when you start cutting up zombies), and there is also a little romance, that looks like it could turn out to be a really good triangle between Beatrice, Will and Oliver. Think X-Men with paranormal creatures, where the guys are monsters too. The […]

It is my extreme pleasure to have Ms. Chloe Neill at The Book Nympho today!! {Fangirl Squee!} I hope you enjoy the interview and no, I didn’t ask THE question, that we are all dying to know the answer to. You’ll just have to read the book like me.  The Book Nympho (TBN): I love your characters; they are so snarky and fun. Does your own personality come into play when coming up with the incredible dialogue and one liners?Chloe Neill (CN): Thank you! I am a very sarcastic and curious person, as are my characters. Thus, those aspects of my personality definitely shine through. As for the one-liners, while I definitely try to use those in real life, they don’t always work out. Just ask my husband. 🙂TBN:  I […]

An Interview with Special Agent Beatrice Alexander By Jennifer Harlow Through some of my Pentagon contacts (thanks Daddy and Uncle George W.) I was given exclusive access to the clandestine branch of the FBI known as the F.R.E.A.K.S. or Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. Their newest agent, former schoolteacher and telekinetic Beatrice Alexander, agreed to meet with me under the cover of night at a coffee shop somewhere in the Midwest. (It rhymes with “Ansas”) So, thanks for agreeing to do this. BA: It’s okay. <rolling eyes> Gave me an excuse to get away from a pest. As long as I’m home in time for The World of Henry Orient. I love Peter Sellers. I understand you just got back from your first case […]

REVIEW: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Posted October 12, 2011 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

   Frankensteinby Mary ShelleyMy Copy: Rented TextbookRating: This “Norton Critical Edition” of “Frankenstein” contains the 1818 first edition text. Only the obvious typographical errors have been corrected. The book also includes writings by Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron and John William Polidori, enabling the reader to place the novel in its historical context. Six 19th-century responses to the novel illustrate contemporary reactions, whilst 12 modern critical essays cover the different aspects (psychoanalytic, mythic, feminist) of the work. REVIEW: I know it’s a classic and usually as a rule of thumb for me I don’t touch anything that is a “classic”. To me classic equals boring. If it had not been a required read for my World Lit class I would have thrown the […]
