Review: Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews

This novella takes place between Magic Strikes and Magic Bleeds in the Kate Daniels universe, but the point-of-view character is Kate’s friend Andrea Nash instead. We’ve already been introduced to Andrea and know secrets about her character from previous books in the series, but this time, she’s the hero of her own adventure. Once again, […]

Review: The Lion Mistress (Eburosi Chronicles #5-#7) by R.A. Steffan

Because of how much I enjoyed each installment of The Horse Mistress, my first experience with the world of the Eburosi Chronicles, I went ahead and bought the full collection of the next adventure as one book. I have no regrets about that decision. This world gave me one of the most intense book hangovers of […]

Balticon 53 Schedule!

Once again, I look forward to returning to my local convention this year, Balticon 53 in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor over Memorial Day weekend. And by local, I mean that I literally worked 2 blocks away from the host hotel for over 10 years. It will be super easy to find me this year, since for […]

Review: Noelle by Night (Dommes by Night #3) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. The final installment of the Dommes by Night series once again flips the script on its head. Nichole heightens the tension on multiple fronts, from the relationship between the main characters, to the hidden secrets, to the drama of the […]

Con Report: StokerCon 2019

If you’re here to find a copy of my alternate history presentation, you’re in the right place! Scroll, read, and enjoy. I might not be a horror fan, but you won’t find a nicer group of creative people. I was immediately welcomed into the fold at StokerCon 2019, held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I […]

2019 Resolution Project: Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels #3) by Ilona Andrews

My 2019 Resolution Project over at my other blog, Speculative Chic, is to read the entire Kate Daniels urban fantasy series by Ilona Andrews, finishing up with a first read of the final book in the series. I’ve read the third book, Magic Strikes, before, but never officially reviewed it. You can find my full review here. An excerpt: “Kate […]

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 4 (Eburosi Chronicles #4) by R.A. Steffan

Now that our three heroes are in a solid relationship, it was time to shake things up a bit. It would have been easy for the author to focus on a more character-driven story, but I love how they don’t let the readers forget that war is coming. Times are changing, and our heroes have […]

Review: “A Lord to Love” by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. I read a much earlier draft of this story, but it was just as much of a pleasure to read the final product a second time around. Bauer features the best of both worlds here: despite this being a […]

StokerCon 2019 Schedule!

I’m excited to attend my first StokerCon this week, in Grand Rapids, Michigan! This is not a convention I plan to attend normally, but the stars aligned to make attending this year too awesome to pass up, such as my publisher Raw Dog Screaming Press winning this year’s Specialty Press Award. For most of the […]
