I can say with confidence at this point that Jacqueline Carey is one of my favorite authors. It’s the detail, I think. It gets me every time. The characters don’t hurt, either. This is the second book featuring Moirinn, who’s half D’Angeline and half Alban (I’d spell the tribe, but that would require me to […]

Ugh. So I finally sat down at the end of last week and read Breaking Dawn. I don’t even have the energy to truly review it. You know what it’s about; Bella Swan and her perfect love and her perfect transition to vampirehood and her perfectly perfect child with the most terrible name ever given […]

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I tend to get really invested in the books I read. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the Dresden Files. I got up the Tuesday it was released, got dressed and went out to buy it. I was finished reading it, and practically in tears, by the […]

I purchased this book when I was in California in February. It was one of those moments of kismet; I spotted it on the shelf, saw the title and laughed out loud. How could I not buy a book with a title like “Queen Victoria, Demon Hunter“? Seriously? I snatched it up faster than you […]

Ilium did not disappoint. […]

OK, enough blather about the wedding. It was nice, on to other things. I’m woefully behind on my reading. On the other hand, I’m reading something like four books right now. I never used to do that. There’s the one that I both have a terrible time putting down and sometimes can’t quite bring myself […]

I’ll admit I’ve been putting off writing this review since I finished the book last week. We’re talking about Defending Angels here, the second in a new series by Mary Stanton. I read the first one as part of Cannonball the First, I think. Maybe. I don’t know. I read it, anyway, and enjoyed it […]

I went on a Jacqueline Carey binge right around the time CB version 1.0 ended: I re-read the entire first and most of the second trilogies that she wrote. I think this is somewhere in the vicinity of 2700 pages. Why yes, I am sorta bragging about that. I already reviewed the final book in […]
