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 […]

FELLSIDE by M.R. Carey – Review

FELLSIDE by M.R. Carey – Review
Posted April 8, 2016 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 3 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An unexpectedly entertaining and emotional story, whose prison drama and tough characters outshine the paranormal story-line. The Girl with All the Gifts was a top ten read for me a couple of years ago, and so it was with great anticipation that I started M.R. Carey’s follow-up, Fellside. And while it didn’t completely blow […]

The nitty-gritty: An instant classic, Railhead deserves a spot up there with some of the best young adult fantasy/science fiction ever written. The train was gone, but he could still see her, striding along beside him in the sodium glow from the trackside lamps. The smell of space clung to her, rich and smoky. What […]

The nitty-gritty: A delightful blend of fantasy, the modern-day film industry, and quirky characters that will make you smile. It was midmorning on a Monday when magic walked into my life wearing a beige Ann Taylor suit and sensible flats. I’ve been salivating over this amazing cover for months now, and I was so excited […]

PAPER TIGERS by Damien Angelica Walters – Review

PAPER TIGERS by Damien Angelica Walters – Review
Posted February 29, 2016 by Tammy in Reviews / 11 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An atmospheric and eerie ghost story with psychological undertones that make this a satisfying horror story on several levels. The house held only broken dreams, shattered screams, and secret little dirty things. It was a liar’s playground, a dead man’s last stand. I was pleasantly surprised by Damian Angelica Walters’ short story collection […]

THE IMMORTALS by Jordanna Max Brodsky – Review

THE IMMORTALS by Jordanna Max Brodsky – Review
Posted February 25, 2016 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 25 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A fun and furious romp with the gods through Manhattan, an intricately plotted murder mystery, and a delightful and refreshingly chaste romance. “One half brother with a huge penis, another with giant testicles. No wonder I’ve never gotten along with my family.”                                     – Selene DiSilva I was so excited when I was […]
