The nitty-gritty: Miriam Black is back and kicking ass in the desert! And even if you haven’t read the first three books of the series, take note: I haven’t read them, and I had a hell of a great time with this book. Arizona license. Steven McArdle. Got forty bucks in there and a MasterCard, […]

The nitty-gritty: Not my favorite of the books so far, but still a very funny and imaginative installment in the Sin du Jour series. At some point I thought maybe Matt Wallace’s series would start to feel “been there, done that,” but thankfully, he seems to have an unlimited supply of humorous fodder up his sleeves, […]

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 […]

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 […]

The nitty-gritty: A darkly funny and violent tale with black magic, fallen angels, demons and angry girlfriends, complete with some loathsome characters you will love to hate. Trixie’s eyes widened as she took in the crimson and grey splatter all over the wall of my office, and then the corpse lying in a pool of […]

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 […]
