Review: Silver Shark (Kinsmen #2) by Ilona Andrews

I enjoyed this Kinsmen tale much more than the first. While this book is a romance, it certainly doesn’t start out feeling that way. I’d even argue that this is a solid science-fiction story that just happens to include romantic elements as part of the plot. The world-building regarding Claire’s home planet and how psychersContinue reading “Review: Silver Shark (Kinsmen #2) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews

This is an older book by the authors, and I’m impressed by how far their writing ability has come (though this wasn’t poorly written by any means). They’ve always been excellent storytellers though, and this novella stands out in this regard. The society worldbuilding here reminds me a lot of the Hidden Legacy series, thoughContinue reading “Review: Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews”
