Liviania’s review of Full-Blood Half-Breed by Cleve Lamison Fantasy published by Hydra 11 Mar 14 I’ve been watching the Penguin Random House eBook imprints tentatively since the initial furor over the contract terms.  (Which did, apparently, get resolved quickly.)  But I hadn’t dipped my toes in until the blurb of Full-Blood Half-Breed made me want [...]

Stevie‘s review of Darkbeast Rebellion (Darkbeast, Book 2) by Morgan Keyes Middle Grade fantasy published by Margaret K. McElderry Books 24 Sep 13 Having utterly loved the first book in this series, I deliberately didn’t reread it before picking this one up, in order to have a clear picture of how well the second stands alone.

Veena’s review of The Lost Night (Rainshadow, Book 1) by Jayne Castle Fantasy & Futuristic Romance published by Jove 04 Sep 12 There aren’t enough authors who write futuristic science fiction and so I devour all such books that come on the market.

Liviania’s review of Among Thieves (A Tale of the Kin, Book 1) by Douglas Hulick Fantasy published by ROC 5 April 11 I buy books on impulse.  I bought Among Thieves because it had the word ‘thieves’ on the cover.  Yes, it was from ROC, an imprint I like.  Yes, the back cover blurb involved [...]

Liviania’s review of SpellCrash (WebMage, Book 5) by Kelly McCullough Mythology/cyberpunk/fantasy released by Ace 25 May 2010 I somehow managed to not realize there existed a series that crossed mythology with cyberpunk.

Liviania’s review of Ice Song by Kirsten Imani Kisai Science fiction/fantasy released by Del Rey 19 May 2009 Sybil quickly figured out that I enjoy stories that play with gender.  Many people are intrigued by what separates men and women, but I enjoy that separation even more when it’s illuminated by a blending of the [...]

Liviania’s review of The Black Ship (Crosspointe, Book 2) by Diana Pharaoh Francis Fantasy released by ROC 4 Nov 08 For some reason, I like reading about people on ships.  Well, about sailors.  I’ve been on a boat before and know just getting ferried around isn’t a particularly exciting experience.  But something about the camaraderie [...]
