Don’t judge a book by it’s cover? Go ahead and judge this one. Fast paced adventure, romance delayed because “I hate my family” not because the 2 romantics annoy each other. First book in series is already ordered. MUST READ NAOW. Advertisements
I loved the first 2 books of this series – a teenage girl suddenly is able to travel between worlds? And someone, no a whole group of someones, want to kill her for it? Jesse finds out more info and resolves most of the problems in the first trilogy, while the ending clearly opens up … More Dreamweaver by C.S. Friedman
I don’t usually read romance, and I don’t usually like conspiracies. This book is smoking hot and the conspiracy doesn’t intrude too much. The series had to potential to trip one of do-not-finish wires: The wise yet hot guy guides the completely ignorant girl, and ends up taking her to bed – shades of teacher … More Wildfire by Ilona Andrews
Dragons + jewel heist + art museum = definitely got my attendtion. Didn’t finish book 1 of series, but this one was very good.

No Spoiler Story-line: Sam and Dean are 2 brothers who battle the Monster of the Week and win. Nice story technique: Sam’s flashback seems like spacing out and going to a … More Mythmaker by Tim Waggoner

And she’s totally not out looking for a hot guy, but if one turns up, she won’t say no. And if another one turns up, … More Magic for Nothing by Seanan McGuire
I generally don’t like series-long conspiracies where the Hero and the Reader peer into the shadows and remain helpless… the very idea makes me break out in Excessive Capitalization… so I skipped a few book in the series after it switched from Monster of the Week to The Vampires Done It. Now that Kitty is … More Kitty Saves the World by Carrie Vaughn
