The nitty-gritty: An atmospheric and stylish tale of family secrets written in blood, with elements of horror that weren’t quite scary enough for me. “Which way?” he asked as we stood in the center of the barren patch of earth. As if answering his question, the breeze whipped through the field, revealing a path and […]

The nitty-gritty: A fantastic end to a unique and magical story, and a world that I didn’t want to leave behind. Sam lived in a world of bones. He found them throughout the dragon, wherever he walked, embedded in the tissues lining every artery, every organ, every cavity, like fossils in rock. The bones came […]

The nitty-gritty: A high-octane, high-tech romp through time and space, with lots of family drama and complex characters to root for. Simply put, Supersymmetry was Superfun! Well, I did it again. I read the second book in a series FIRST. But in defense of my decision to do so, I was told that Supersymmetry would […]

The nitty-gritty: A unique and many-layered world that left me craving more world-building details, but contained some of the coolest fantasy elements I’ve read in a long time. We had so many ways to describe different types of wind. Lifts. Crosses. Constants. Gaps. I might one day hear them all. Something low and large echoed […]

ZEROES by Chuck Wendig – Review

ZEROES by Chuck Wendig – Review
Posted August 17, 2015 by Tammy in 3 1/2 stars, Reviews / 16 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An action-packed techno-thriller—a bit of a departure for Wendig—that still manages to entertain, despite some over-the-top story elements. If there’s one thing you can count on from Chuck Wendig, it’s that he’s not afraid to try out new genres. I didn’t know much about Zer0es going into it, and I wasn’t sure what […]

ALICE by Christina Henry – Review

ALICE by Christina Henry – Review
Posted August 10, 2015 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 14 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A dark (very dark) and violent (very violent) trip through a deranged landscape with the characters of Alice In Wonderland. Except in this book, you may not recognize them… Cake. She was thinking of cake, the soft crumbly sweetness of it on her tongue. She had not eaten cake for years. There certainly […]
