Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez

By the time I could read this graphic novel, which collects the first five issues of The Old Guard, I’d already seen the movie on Netflix twice. If you followed me on social media last August, you know I was pretty obsessed. So, it’s difficult for me to talk about the graphic novel in isolation,Continue reading “Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez”

Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone

“The Seduction of Molly O’Flaherty” (Book 0.5) After meeting these characters in Simone’s Markham Hall series, I was intrigued enough to follow them to London for their romance saga. Like it says on the tin, this story is not necessary for the following books. However, it does an excellent job of introducing Molly and SilasContinue reading “Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper

Surrender the Past Sometimes the theme of a book is difficult to parse; not so with this installment of the extended Scientific Method Universe collection of stories. After meeting him as a bit character in the main series, I was excited to get to know Nick better in his own romance. Because it takes placeContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Universe Series by Kris Ripper”

Review: Alpha Protocol (Dark Tyrant #3) by C.R. Langille

Read my review of Dark Tyrant book 1, Canyon Shadows. Read my review of Dark Tyrant book 2, Consequence. Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; I received a free ebook version of this novel in exchange for an honest review. The post-apocalyptic mayhem continues as Dark Tyrant book 3 picks up almost immediately afterContinue reading “Review: Alpha Protocol (Dark Tyrant #3) by C.R. Langille”

Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

I was delighted to return to the world of Widdershins, eight years beyond the original series, and check in on my favorite fictional town. The librarians of the Ladysmith Museum were always a source of amused befuddlement for me during the original series, so I was excited that one of those librarians was a heroContinue reading “Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Book 1) Here’s the old-school Gothic erotic romance I expected when I started Simone’s Thornchapel series! An innocent young woman finds herself helpless and adrift in a new home, at the mercy of a mysterious and figure who instantly captivates her attention. Despite Simone’s effortless narrative that elevates the interactionsContinue reading “Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper

Catalysts (Book 1) The structure of this book is unusual but makes sense once you realize that it originally consisted of two books and that the first book originally consisted of a series of even shorter interludes. This narrative style might make the story disjointed for some readers, especially those who are looking for aContinue reading “Review: Scientific Method Series by Kris Ripper”

Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin

Spellbound (Book 1) Paranormal queer romance in early twentieth-century New York City seems to be a trope I’m particularly fond of, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this book when at least two authors I follow raved about it on Twitter. The story itself did not disappoint in any measure, from the romance to theContinue reading “Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin”

Review: The Calculating Stars (Lady Astronaut #1) by Mary Robinette Kowal

This post-apocalyptic novel is a climate change story dressed up with a meteor strike. The meteor allows for a dramatic and epic start to the tale and accelerates the climate change issues our planet already faces. Under this premise, Kowal can force this world into jumpstarting events to tell Elma’s story. I was reluctant toContinue reading “Review: The Calculating Stars (Lady Astronaut #1) by Mary Robinette Kowal”

Review: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois

Primal Passion (Book 2) I abandoned the first book in this series at about 70%. The three-way arranged marriage via secret society concept intrigued me. Unfortunately, the book used it more as an excuse for three characters to launch immediately into sexual escapades without any personal connection. By the time the external plot showed up,Continue reading “Review: Trinity Masters Series by Mari Carr & Lila Dubois”
