BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda – Review

BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda – Review
Posted September 18, 2017 by Tammy in 3 1/2 stars, Reviews / 9 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A compulsively readable tale about the hidden lives of one married couple. Best Day Ever was just what I needed. I’ve been surviving on a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy for the last six years, so it was a nice change of pace to read a contemporary thriller for a change. […]

MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review

MAGICIANS IMPOSSIBLE by Brad Abraham- Review
Posted September 12, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 23 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Fast and furious, violent and action-packed, this story will make you wish you had magical powers! Brad Abraham’s debut is being billed as “Harry Potter meets James Bond” and after reading Magicians Impossible I have to say that’s a pretty good description. I had several Harry Potter flashback moments while reading this, and […]

GODSGRAVE by Jay Kristoff – Review

GODSGRAVE by Jay Kristoff – Review
Posted September 5, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 14 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A bloody good, bloody brilliant sequel in Kristoff’s ode to the Roman Empire. Hey, let’s face it. This story is just bloody. Small, unavoidable spoilers for Nevernight, if you haven’t read it yet. Fair warning! There were several times while reading Godsgrave that I had to stop reading and ask myself, “Did Jay […]

THE PUNCH ESCROW by Tal M. Klein – Review

THE PUNCH ESCROW by Tal M. Klein – Review
Posted August 31, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 11 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A heady mix of high entertainment, non-stop action and interesting facts about physics and future technology,  this book was, simply put, a blast! After reading a couple of fellow bloggers’ rave reviews of this book, I knew I had to get a hold of a copy and read it for myself. And they were […]

THE CLOCKWORK DYNASTY by Daniel H. Wilson

THE CLOCKWORK DYNASTY by Daniel H. Wilson
Posted August 14, 2017 by Tammy in Reviews / 14 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Part nail-biting historical journey and part Terminator-like thriller, The Clockwork Dynasty will surprise readers with its unexpected emotion, violence and unputdownable, page-turning storytelling. “We cannot succeed,” she says, and her voice is a melody, the chirping of clockwork birds. Indeed, the mechanism that speaks for her was created from a singing wooden clock […]

STRANGE PRACTICE by Vivian Shaw – Review

STRANGE PRACTICE by Vivian Shaw – Review
Posted August 3, 2017 by Tammy in 3 1/2 stars, Reviews / 20 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A modern-day supernatural mystery cloaked in Victorian garb, with monsters. When I first saw the cover of Strange Practice, I knew it was going to be different from other books I’ve read. This is exactly the kind of cover that grabs my attention: quirky, brightly colored, and there is obviously an interesting story […]

THE QUEEN OF SWORDS by R.S. Belcher – Review

THE QUEEN OF SWORDS by R.S. Belcher – Review
Posted July 27, 2017 by Tammy in 5 stars, Reviews / 23 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Belcher is in high form with this epic adventure tale that spans generations, a story that puts its female characters front and center. Stand back, men! It’s always a pleasure to read a new R.S. Belcher story, and it’s even more exciting when that story is set in one of my favorite universes, […]

LOST BOY by Christina Henry – Review

LOST BOY by Christina Henry – Review
Posted July 10, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 22 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A dark retelling of Peter Pan, steeped in loss and heartbreak, with thrilling action and lots of surprises. We were still children, for all that we thought we weren’t. We were in that in-between place, the twilight between childish things and grown-up things. Childhood still held out a friendly hand to us, if […]
