Posted November 27, 2017 by Tammy in 5 stars, Reviews / 16 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A strange, dangerous and magical glimpse into a future world, told in stunningly beautiful prose. Now, too, patterns began to emerge. There were people who seemed to just disappear, and the city had no answer for this except rumors—murmurs of an invisible killer from the tattered remnants of Wick’s contacts and my contact […]

The nitty-gritty: A short but thought-provoking and dark retelling of the story of Moses. Many of you are familiar with Serial Box, the company that has put serial storytelling back on the map, with recent stories like Bookburners, Tremontaine and The Witch Who Came in from the Cold. They offer short weekly “episodes” written by […]

The nitty-gritty: A complex and unique story that delivers on all levels. Simply brilliant! I was initially drawn to The Nine because of it’s brightly colored cover, but believe me when I say the cover pales in comparison to the story that’s inside. This is one of my best, happiest surprises of the year, and […]

Posted October 30, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 5 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A super fun read with a cool concept, well drawn characters, and some social commentary for those who like depth with their action. This might be the quickest I have ever read a book! I got through Spliced in just over a twenty-four hour time period, mostly because I stayed home sick from […]
