Reading, reading, and suddenly there’s a tape recorder. Wait, when was this written? 1978. Wow. It’s a great story, and a lot of the best fight scenes take place in a canyon, so there would be no cell reception anyhow. Great story, beautiful Arizona scenery, nice cultural bits, and a fine mystery.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled relationship&wedding angst for… relationship&wedding angst, the Edward & Donna version. So… plot-related angst? Anita shopping for a gown that doesn’t trip her up and, ps, leave her boobs hanging out. Why anyone thought she should try that gown on at all is clearly the ogling pleasure of the reader. While … More Serpentine by Laurell K. Hamilton
Hate the cover, but the story is pretty good! Reread before “Serpentine”. The 4 Horsepersons of the Monster killing world get together to figure out who is doing the gruesome killings, and if the real goal is to get Anita away from her power-base*. Who’s in charge of the hunt? Edward tried to get a … More Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton
What a fun story. Follows Atticus of the ever-changing name, Granuille, and Owen as they have adventures and eventually meet up again. Everyone has an epiphany to go with the adventure, it’s cool. Also, doggies. Irish wolfhounds are the best, just ask them. Assorted witches, vampires, werewolves, and tree-of-life magic users, and assorted gods. Fun … More Staked (The Iron Druid Chronicles #8) by Kevin Hearne
Too many tests this season. Time for a reread of a really good series. It’s a rare series that just keeps getting better – every time the plot seems to get a bit stale, it takes a hard right and turns into something else that, on re-read, was carefully built up over the last two … More Magic Series – Kate Daniel – by Ilona Andrews
Reread. Awww, Miss Trouble With Authority meets Mr. “L’état, C’est Moi”. Fun. It’s interesting to re-read the first book of a series after reading the first six. The seventh won’t come out for another few months. (Darn it, why can’t the author’s compress time and get me the book already!) Kate has a secret to … More Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews
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.
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.
