reviewed Marvel Romance Redux. September 13, 2010
Marvel Romance Redux (Marvel Comics)
You can accurately say that this is either a hit or miss sort of comic collection. The art itself is from the old Marvel Romance comics line and the dialogue is what has been rewritten often to an outlandish …
Cold Magic (The Spiritwalker Trilogy)
I've read Elliott before, I had an old battered copy of Jaran for the longest time (before it got lost in the Great Book Loss of 2001 aka we moved and they lost my box of books), but I haven't read much …
reviewed Masked (book). July 20, 2010
Masked
As usual I'll review each story individually and then give a wrap up. From the offset I should say however that at least five of the authors here are comic book writers that I idolize ::cough Gail Simone …

Whisper (2007)
My father and I bought this mainly because it has Dule Hill in it and we wanted to see what he would be like outside of Psych. Well we got more than we bargained for--the movie also has Josh Holloway …
reviewed Parker's Price. July 03, 2010
Parker's Price
Its a little bit dishonest to say that Parker was for 'sale'. Dean more or less manipulated her into a position where if she refused too much she would look really bad (PR wise). The rest applies--and …
reviewed The World Above. June 23, 2010
The World Above (Once Upon a Time)
I'll freely admit I have no love for the original Jack and the Beanstalk tale. It bothered me that Jack could be so thoughtless when he knew so much was at stake. Plus I felt it taught a bad moral lesson; …
My Soul to Keep (Soul Screamers, Book 3)
Its not often that you'll find me preferring the third book in a series to either of the first two, but with My Soul to Keep, third in Vincent's Soul Screamers novel series, I am. Its not that I didn't …
The Princess and the Hound
The Princess and the Hound defied my expectations. I couldn't fathom how it was a 'retelling' of Beauty and the Beast at first and it was only after discussing the book with my sister that I began to …
reviewed The Summer of Skinny Dipping. June 08, 2010
The Summer of Skinny Dipping
This novel is exactly the kind of book I want to read, but my sister never picks up. Romance, friendship, coming of age...however you want to categorize this book, its my kind of book. I used to devour …
reviewed Guardian of the Dead. June 07, 2010
Guardian of the Dead
Guardian of the Dead, which is based around Maori beliefs and tales (the native populace of New Zealand, who have intermingled with the settlers and such over the generations), makes me want to move to …
reviewed Whisper. June 07, 2010
Whisper
I started out Whisper a little bit unsure. The premise of Whisper gave me a chill while reading the blurb. Not the paranormal part, but the Joy and Jessica part. Something about those few lines detailing …
Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, Book 4)
By necessity its required to keep the synopsis pretty short. Actually I cut out a line from the synopsis because it gives away a detail that is more of a punch if you don't know beforehand. Basically …
reviewed Possession (2009). May 14, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
Possession (2009)
Possession starring Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Michael Landes (Final Destination 2) and Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies) is the American remake of Korean director Young-hoon Park's 2007 …
Princess of the Midnight Ball
Like George's previous book I read, Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, Princess of the Midnight Ball is an adaptation of one of my favorite fairy tales, "The Twelve Dancing Princesses". Its not very very often …
reviewed Wicked Becomes You. May 13, 2010
Wicked Becomes You
I was a little wary of Gwen at first. Nice girl turning wicked can go so bad so quickly after all. However I shouldn't have worried quite honestly, Gwen's idea of becoming wicked was only rough-hewn at …
Aurelie: A Faerie Tale
I wasn't certain what to think of when I first began Aurelie. I had thought it was based on a certain fairy tale, or several, but if it is I can't find any references to its original story. The alternating …
reviewed Picture the Dead. May 10, 2010
Picture the Dead
What I liked best about this book was the scrapbook pages before and after each chapter. Pictures, letters and little mementos were drawn by the illustrator (Lisa Brown) to accompany Jennie's memories …
reviewed Party. May 09, 2010
Party
When I first read the synopsis for this book I was intrigued because it sounded very much like the movies Crash and The Air I Breathe (and to a lesser extent the tv show Lost). When someone tells a story …
reviewed Kiss of Death (Morganville Vampires, .... April 28, 2010
Kiss of Death (Morganville Vampires, Book 8)
One of the best things about the Morganville Vampires series is the continuity. Everything Claire and Co. say has a consequence and sometimes that consequence is more than they bargain for. I love it. …
reviewed The Forest of Hands and Teeth. April 28, 2010
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
A long time ago, back when it was common to hear the question because of my age, someone asked me "What do you dream of?". My answer changed periodically, depending on what I was currently into or wanted …
reviewed Hex Hall. April 27, 2010
Hex Hall (Book 1)
Often while reading this I had to consciously slow myself down because I found myself tearing through it much too rapidly. Hex Hall is an easy, enjoyable read for me. Overall nothing really shocked me, …
reviewed Embers. April 15, 2010
Embers
Originally I had no intention of reading Embers. I'm a little burned out from Urban Fantasies, at least starting new series, and had resolved to take a break. Best laid plans and such found me buying …
reviewed Jekel Loves Hyde. April 10, 2010
Jekel Loves Hyde
Having recently read Jessica's Guide, as in a few days ago, I was excited to read this new book from Fantaskey. Admittedly I'm never a fan of the original work (though I did enjoy the BBC adaptation 'Jekyl' …
Night World: The Ultimate Fan Guide
As a fan guide this falls short on several fronts. Other then being a concise location for Night World facts and some insights into the novels themselves from the creator (a lot of which can be read on …
reviewed Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a .... April 03, 2010
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake
Like MacLean's YA regency set romance, The Season, this takes a lot of typical tropes of the genre and gives them a firm whacking. Callie is twenty-seven years old, 'rubenesque' in physique and otherwise …
reviewed Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner 2 w.... April 02, 2010
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner 2 with Bonus
Basically you go around solving various supernatural detective cases while trying to protect the 'Capital' (Tokyo) in the early 20th century Japan. You capture 'demons' and raise their levels to help …
An Earl to Enchant: The Rogues' Dynasty
While Blackwell (from A Duke to Die For) still holds my heart the most, I think Morgandale might make a good showing for second favorite of the three cousins. He certainly knows how to make a girl's heart …
reviewed Heart's Blood. April 01, 2010
Heart's Blood
I've been a fan of Marillier's writing since the first time I took Daughter of the Forest out from the library. Like that book, and all the Sevenwaters books succeeding it, Heart's Blood is set in an …
reviewed Inside Out. March 22, 2010
Inside Out (Harlequin Teen)
For anyone who has read her Study (Yelena) or Glass (Opal) books, this will be a different experience for you. Its not a fantasy based archetype--it more strongly resembles a dystopian futuristic archetype …
reviewed Voices of Dragons. March 17, 2010
Voices of Dragons
When I first heard about Voices of Dragons, I had no idea it was a young adult urban fantasy. Actually I had no idea what it was about at all, but Dragons are a surefire way to get my attention at least. …
Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1)
I've wanted to read the Greywalker books for a decent amount of time now. I received the first one from an exchange a whiles back, and I have the third one as well. My edition of the second one seems …
Scorched: The Dark Forgotten
We first met Mac in Holly and Alessandro's adventure, Ravenous, when he was just a simple detective who picked up the wrong (the very wrong) dame at the bar. He wasn't a bad guy, and until he decided …
reviewed The Bookman. February 06, 2010
The Bookman
The Bookman is one of those odd books that if I had seen it while browsing its very likely I would not have given it two glances. This isn't to say it wasn't interesting, but rather the cover does not …
reviewed The Better Part of Darkness. February 06, 2010
The Better Part of Darkness
Better Part of Darkness worked for me and didn't work for me. It worked for me in that our protagonist, Charlie, makes a lot of mistakes and she pays dearly for most of them. She's not naive, or even …
reviewed Deep Kiss of Winter. February 06, 2010
Deep Kiss of Winter
The two stories contained within this volume are part of each author's larger series. 'Untouchable' by Kresley Cole is part of her Immortals After Dark book series and 'Tempt Me Eternally' by Gena Showalter …
reviewed Dreaming Anastasia: A Novel of Love, .... February 06, 2010
Dreaming Anastasia: A Novel of Love, Magic, and
The story of the last daughter of the Romanov clan is probably one that most young girls hear at an early age. A lost princess, rumors that she survived and is in the world somewhere, and the demonic …
The Princes Of The Golden Cage
This was an impulse buy with a giftcard from the holidays, but one I'm happy about. The Arabian setting, even an Arabian inspired fantasy, was vastly interesting. Of course we always hear about the intrigues …
reviewed The King's Daughters. February 06, 2010
The King's Daughters
Our second outing with the Telfarian Prince Amir brings us to the northern lands of Sorvinka, the homeland of his beloved Princess Eva. If Telfar was much like an Arabian fantasy, then Sorvinka is very …
reviewed Teacher's Pet. February 06, 2010
Teacher's Pet
I read this because a friend rec'ed it to me saying "You'll love the interactions between the two leads".     And you know what? I totally did. Ignoring the sex and BDSM, the way that …
The Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance
For the record I've read 8 of the authors listed above previously. In the introduction by Telep she mentions how time travel romance flourished in the 90's and early new millennium, but how paranormal …
