THE VOODOO KILLINGS by Kristi Charish – Review

THE VOODOO KILLINGS by Kristi Charish – Review
Posted May 30, 2016 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 19 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A twisty plot full of zombies, ghosts, murders, magic and mayhem, darkly atmospheric with Charish’s special brand of snarky humor. The way Cameron’s pupils focused on me, part of him still had to be in there. There was no way he was a four-line, permit-friendly zombie—the temporary kind you were still allowed to […]

SLEEPING GIANTS by Sylvain Neuvel – Review

SLEEPING GIANTS by Sylvain Neuvel – Review
Posted May 26, 2016 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 18 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A fascinating concept, political intrigue, plenty of mysteries, but written in a format that might not work for every reader.

With each season a new godling appeared in the streets and alleyways of Central Station. They were nebulous things, more than human, less than Other, like semi-sentient sculptures which straddles both the […]

The nitty-gritty: A bunch of stories that will make you very uncomfortable. And that’s a good thing! God watches as you bring another into the room. He does not take his eyes off you. Sits in his LifeChair exactly where you parked him two days before. White beard and tubes. His cartridge core throbs, like […]

THE DAYS OF TAO by Wesley Chu – Review

THE DAYS OF TAO by Wesley Chu – Review
Posted April 21, 2016 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 9 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A short tale that’s packed with action, humor, and some old favorite characters. I fell in love with Wesley Chu’s Tao series, which ended last year with The Deaths of Tao, and so I was thrilled to discover he was writing a novella set in the same universe.  The Days of Tao is […]
