  • The Radleys: A Novel

    The Radleys is a moving, thrilling, and radiant domestic novel that explores with daring the lengths a parent will go to protect a child, what it costs you to deny your identity, the undeniable appeal of sin, and the everlasting, iridescent bonds of family love. Read it and ask what we grow into when we grow up, and what we gain - and lose - when we deny our appetites.

    I was expecting quirky, English humor - but this was just deadly dull. The narrator's dead-pan, monotone recitation certainly did not enhance the book. The writing was stylistically poorly done with constant short, clipped sentences and little imagery. Depressing, dull, boring.

    A series of seemingly motiveless murders of supernatural creatures points to a vigilante targeting the supe community of Scranton. Markowski wouldn’t normally have much of a problem with that, but his daughter may be next on the killer’s list... Justin Gustainis was born in Northeast Pennsylvania in 1951. He attended college at the University of Scranton, a Jesuit university that figures prominently in several of his writings. He is currently a Professor of Communication at Plattsburgh State University.

    Again, an entertaining book, enjoyable plot, interesting premise. But, really, why on earth would an FBI agent sound like Natasha from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show? If you can get past the, shall we say 'unique,' narration, this would be worth listening to, but I'm not wasting any more credits.

    Scranton, the strangest city on earth has an uneasy “live and let unlive” relationship with the supernatural. But when a vamp puts the bite on an unwilling victim, or some witch casts the wrong kind of spell, that’s when they call me. “My name’s Markowski, a Detective Sergeant on the Scranton PD’s Supernatural Crimes Investigation Unit. I carry a badge. Also, a crucifix, some wooden stakes, a big vial of holy water, and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets.”

    Story

    I love the hard-bitten urban cop type of story - and when you throw in a few vampires and witches it's even more fun - but really, the narrator used comic book voices for all but the main character and makes them just sound silly. Whoever produced this one needs to be sent to his room without supper - this should have been stopped before more than a chapter was recorded!
    Would love to continue with the series - but a new narrator would sure help the experience!

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    Story

    Another wild installment in Rachel Morgan's adventures - and her adventures just get more unbelievable. I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but once you accept a world where witches and demons travel back and forth from the underworld, and elves are involved with genetic manipulation and ketchup is considered dangerous, then little things like a goddess who loses pieces of herself, or catching a train at fifty miles an hour with the help of gargoyles seem almost logical. The characters are wonderful, even if I do miss bad guy Trent. Biz is coming into his own. And by Tink's pink *****, Jinks the pixie is one of my favorite characters ever!

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    I've listened to the whole series, so here I am back to review the first book! Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi go together like peanut butter and grape jelly! Molly Harper has a great ear for dialogue, and wonderful characters. I love the main characters, but the minor characters light up the story and really add depth! The dialogue is snarky, sarcastic, entertaining and fun. Give this series a try!

    Since Merit was turned into a vampire and the protector of Chicago's Cadogan House, it's been a wild ride. She and Master vampire Ethan Sullivan have helped make Cadogan's vampires the strongest in North America, and forged ties with paranormal folk of all breeds and creeds, living or dead...or both. But now those alliances are about to be tested. A strange and twisted magic has ripped through the North American Central Pack. But who - or what - could possibly be powerful enough to out-magic a shifter?

    Merit's adventures as Sentinal of Cadogan House continue, with more monsters, more steel, a truly hot master vampire - if you have enjoyed the previous Chicagoland Vampires books, then this one will continue the fun. However, don't try to jump in here -- I really suggest that you start at the beginning of the series - the author doesn't waste a lot of time or ink filling in the back story, and there is a lot of back story for this one. Warning - this one has a cliffhanger ending - write fast, Chloe! I can't wait for the next one!

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Nothing original, trite writing, wimpy foolish heroine. Really, when she decides that the male character, Hawk, must be a good guy because he can afford to buy her expensive shoes, I was about done with her! And a good editor could help - "I was feeling tired and frustrated. 'I'm feeling tired and frustrated,' I said." Hawk is lifted directly from another series - Puerto Rican security specialist with immense amounts of money - sound like Ranger to anyone else?

    In "The Wolf, the Witch, and Her Lack of Wardrobe" by Shelly Laurenston, Jamie Meacham has enough trouble controlling her supernatural abilities. Thus, there's no time for lust, or for Tully Smith, even with his smoldering amber eyes. But Tully's grappling with his own animal instincts, as a powerful shifter-wolf trying to protect all his territory - including a certain sassy witch - from vicious rivals.

    Shelly Laurenston has a fine pen for dialogue, and a talent for developing fun, lovable characters. What a shame to ruin this with a reader who has no differentiation between characters and the worst excuse for a southern accent ever.

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    Oh, good heavens, get on with it already. We all sit around the room arguing. Then we have a fight that lasts forever. Then we all sit around the room arguing. There is very little plot, very little meaningful action. This is a five-snooze book.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Molly Harper doesn't write deep, thought provoking novels - she entertains. If you want something light and fun and a few chuckles, then this is a great choice. Ms. Harper is a genius of sarcasm and snark. Her characters are quirky and the situations are ridiculous, and I enjoyed every minute! And, try the green beans - pretty good, even if there is nothing nutritious about them!

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Story

    Poor Styxx. Sad Styxx. Bullied Styxx. Hundreds of pages of "let's all feel sorry for Styxx." All of the heroes of this series have terrible back-stories, that is the major premise of the series. But, really, page after page after page of Styxx being tortured is just boring. There are only so many ways a person can be beaten or raped, and I'd a lot rather have some action or adventure than this repetitious, depressing slop. Sherrilyn, you let us down.
