Veena’s review of The Hob (The Gray Court, Book 4) by Dana Marie Bell Fantasy Romance published by Samhain Publishing 22 Jan 13 I’ve always thought Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream is a delightful piece of whimsy, but Dana Marie Bell takes it to a whole new level in her Gray Court series.
Veena’s review of Possessed by Desire (Firebrand Series) by Elisabeth Naughton Paranormal/Fantasy Romance published by Amazon Digital Services, Inc. 21 Jan 13 I’m a fan of this author’s Eternal Guardian series, but this new series is definitely not in the same class. However, it’s a quick, light read, though I have to say this concluding book is the weakest of the [...]
Veena’s review of Dreamspinner (Nine Kingdoms: Ruith and Sarah, Book 4) by Lynn Kurland Fantasy Romance published by Berkley Trade 31 Dec 12 If you enjoy Epic Fantasy then Lynn Kurland’s Nine Kingdom series is for you. Dreamspinner kicks of the third trilogy in this series. Morgan and Miach are ruling Neroche as the much-loved king [...]
Ash’s review of Be Careful What You Wish For by Nick Howard Fantasy Romance short story published by Samhain 11 Jan 11 Well…I don’t really have anything good to say about Be Careful What You Wish For. I was looking for something fun and I got something bland.
Action begins the war in this edition of the series in Queen of Song and Souls. I remember my heart thudding with each throw of a fey’cha or thrust of a sword or toss of a magical ball of fire. Ms. Wilson pulls no punches in the beginning of this war with the Eld mages. [...]
Sometimes it amazes me the villains authors are able to write. I laugh and ask where they get their inspiration, how deep they have to dig. I mean, sometimes it’s spooky how evil these characters can be. The High Mage of Eld is one of those villains. He’s taken centuries to hatch his plans, to [...]
Lady of Light and Shadows is the second half of C.L. Wilson’s original 1,000-page manuscript. That’s one of the reasons (a 1,000-page manuscript from a new author being another) her Tairen Soul series was rejected several times before finally being published. At that time, C.L., in her wildest dreams, never imagined her book would go [...]
I look at this cover now and think how crazy I was to judge the fantasy story inside as something I probably wouldn’t like. Now this cover as well as the other four in this series are some of my favorites. The old saying is true: Don’t judge a book its cover. This is the [...]
Sandy M’s review of Crown of Crystal Flame (Tairen Soul, Book 5) by C.L. Wilson Fantasy Romance published by Avon 26 Oct 10 When I think back to 2007 when I received an ARC for review of the first book in this series, Lord of the Fading Lands, and I kept looking at the cover, [...]
Gwen’s review of Archangel’s Kiss (Guild Hunters, Book 2) by Nalini Singh Paranormal/fantasy romance released by Berkley 2 Feb 10 This is the second book in the Guild Hunters saga and the third story. (Singh released a standalone novella in the Must Love Hellhounds anthology.) This entry deals with Elena’s new condition, her relationship with the [...]
Sandy M’s review of Queen of Song and Souls (Tairen Soul, Book 4) by C.L. Wilson Fantasy Romance published by Leisure Books 27 Oct 09 This is one of those books you can’t wait to get your hands on. Anticipation courses through you as you open it up and finally get a taste of the [...]
Shannon C.’s review of Bound by Steel (Emissaries of Belthalas, Book 2) by Kirsten Saell Erotic fantasy romance eBook released by Samhain Publishing 14 Oct 08 I’ve long been a fan of Kirsten Saell, both as a person and as a writer. I love her take on fantasy romance, which is both sexy and believably [...]
Gwen’s review of The Vampire’s Bride (Atlantis, Book 4) by Gena Showalter Paranormal fantasy romance released by HQN 1 Mar 09 This is a varied and interesting series. Its premise is that several paranormal species were created by the gods in their quest to create man. The ones who were considered failures were sequestered in [...]
Shannon C.’s review of The Flame (Sons of Destiny, Book 7) by Jean Johnson Fantasy romance released by Berkley Trade/Sensation 2 Dec 08 As I’ve said in my last few reviews of the books in this series, I’ve been a slavish follower of Ms. Johnson ever since I discovered her books. They have a combination [...]
I liked C2′s idea of a Best of 2008 list. Then Liv got into the action, so thought I’d give it a try too. (Of course, mine are the best of the bunch.) I was never one to keep track of my reads, and 2008 was the first time I’ve done that; therefore, this list, [...]
