    Hmm Grouchy Scottish vampire and a virgin sort-of fallen angel.. It sounds really really corny but it works. Some laugh-outloud moments as well as touching scenes, the kind Kerrelyn-sensei seems to be good at doing. I have read the series on and off and I seem to have missed reading several books The 2 books I've recently read were fun enough that I will go back and pick up those books.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    Story

    As always another wonderful installment of the Kate Daniels series. The characters've stayed true to themselves and shown growth, and the storyline continues to move steadily. The expected big confrontation happens but it wasn't quite what I expected as to how it will unfold, nevertheless knowing it's not over yet makes me extremely happy and salivating for more.

    I love the people surrounding Kate and they show up in this book, unfortunately not as much as I like. So I especially enjoyed "the Derek and Ascanio show" at the beginning. On the other side, people who've never quite had their 15min of fame gets stand center stage and reveal themselves more. I really liked that. We also finally get to meet the Daddy who is as creepy and strong as we expected. All through the book Curran shows what he is made of and made me fall in love with him more along with Kate!

    Will be another enjoyable and fun read for the fan of the books!


    Oh! I also appreciated the addition at the beginning the small character introductions and very short background story up until now. It helps for those of us who have to read the series over again when reading a new book and now we have so many!

    On the heels of Kitty's return from London, a new werewolf shows up in Denver, one who threatens to split the pack by challenging Kitty's authority at every turn. The timing could not be worse; Kitty needs all the allies she can muster to go up against the ancient vampire, Roman, if she's to have any hope of defeating his Long Game. But there's more to this intruder than there seems, and Kitty must uncover the truth-fast. Meanwhile, Cormac pursues an unknown entity wreaking havoc across Denver.

    Story

    Although nothing major in the ongoing war has happened, I feel this book gave a good start to the next direction the series is going and prepared Kitty for it.

    I love books filled with action, but that doesn't mean I love upheaval and spectacular stuff all the time. This series is nice in a sense it is not the "end of the world" again and again. Yes the Big Bad is looming on the horizon but people are people and they have lives. This book reminds you of that. Kitty sees the big picture and she has been pursuing that for a while. On the other side the little things like finding a house, doing a wacky radio show and keeping up with the pack and her family have been a bit neglected. Those thing all catch her unaware literally in this book. I love that she is able to talk it out mostly and that Ben is the foundation she relies on.
    Outworldly nothing "major" like a battle happen but internally Kitty was able to reconfirm what makes her herself and that I think is pretty major.

    I was sad at the end but optimistic everything will work out as it should in the near future. Looking forward to reading more.

    I love Sherlock Holmes' pastiches and this one was no exception. I think the narrator as Watson really added to the atmosphere of the dark foggy London's bloody mystery of Jack the Ripper. The man behind "Jack" was carefully uncovered with the clever way clues were presented and wasn't out of the blue or too obvious.

    All the subsidiary characters like Lestrade and Mycroft were very well written, too. I really enjoyed the book.

    If you like Sherlock pastiches I would recommend this book!

    Elorie Shaw, steeped in the traditions of the Nova Scotia witching community, but not a witch. The fetching spell must have goofed this time... or did it? Travel to Fisher's Cove, Nova Scotia, where Moira is matriarch and the old ways are nurtured and passed to the next generation. Where a crotchety old witch makes small children cry and builds walls around the silent pain in his heart. And where Elorie - sea-glass artist, inn owner, and Moira's granddaughter - makes her home.

    Since I gobbled up the first book the Modern Witch and loved it sooo much. I pretty much bought everything that's available on the series! That's how much I liked it.

    This book follows the first book and shows more of the world of the Modern witches. It goes into more about the family and the relationship surrounding them. The concept of the hidden "witch" talent here is very modern and interesting. Made me want to play the game! The additional characters further introduced here and were just glimps in the first book, give extra warmth and depth!

    LOVE the series.

    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    I would have never picked the series up if it hadn't been on sale in audible and had high stars on both amazon and Goodreads. Boy, am I glad I started this series.

    It's an amazing series of books centered around "modern witches," or some might prefer people with psychic power(ie telepathy) who can focus and control their magic through spells. Since they are modern witches they use the Internet to search for unknown witches.

    Magic is important in this series, but rather more important theme throughout the series is self discovery of the people who got connected with the "Witch Central." Like my other favorite[Virgin River series, it is about community of wonderful people supporting each other. All the books just make me smile and feel warm. The first book is weak compared to the other books but it's a great introduction to the series.

    I recommend the books for those whose favorite includes virgin river series and would like a little of warm magic in their lives.

    The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after. Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.... Until the real earl appears.

    A fun read but for those people who are bothered by language, historical accuracy and realistic things it might be too much. You need to be able to ignore the too modern language usage and actions of the characters.
    If you can, then some parts are laugh out loud funny and enjoyable. But I think I will stick to the Argeneau books which I love.

    Was going to continuing listening to another book but ended up listening to an old favorite while to/from work. I just couldn't resist.

    I love the balance between Aaron, Chandra and Darvish. They are perfect together in this quest to find themselves as well as save Darvish's country. It is still believable and nice to read how the relationship of the three strengthens through the trip and eventually heals all of them. Although this is my first time to "listen" to the book, I read this book numerous times since I first read this decades ago. It's still gold!

    OMG just found that this is out in audiobook at Audible.

    One of my favorite Tanya Huff book! Should I or should I not? that is the problem. It could be a wonderful comfort listen if the narrator is good.... Hmmm FT/MM and has a nice strong female character... just like a good Yaoi manga.....

    Ack! I am getting this. LOL resistance is futile

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Story

    Don't be fooled by the cover which really really doesn't convey what's inside. Seriously please don't judge this book by its cover.

    This was a surprisingly fun steampunk/alternative history, post-WW2, with the dark noir atmosphere magic/scifi comic book like action. And the enemy is the EVIL Japanese lord which I'd like to object to. However, to be fair I can totally imagine Japan under a dictatorship and become a nation blindingly following him. Unfortunately the author seems to have forgotten to check names so the main evil guy has a name with two last names instead of a first name but I can live with that.

    In spite of all the cool gadgets like dirigibles, machine guns and nuke like bombs, I was most attracted to the characters in the book. They are in a way cookie cut superheros but are portrayed in a way you actually see them as people. On the other hand the villans were sort of predictable and boring.

    Scenes and setting are definitely and deliberately described and set like a movie. Readers who are comicbook and managa readers will have just imagining the scenes.




    *a bit spoiler*:
    I also have to say that I found the explanation of the magic talents and how they develop is very interesting. The magic is caused by an entity that actually is alive and like a parasite they symbiotically live off human beings who can take magic power from it. It resides in a realm between life and death and only "very special" people can perceive it. However I would like to reread it to understand it better!

Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.

    OK done with the series and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot. Lane sensei gives us a LOT of information and that is what really got to me. I hated that the characters had to survive heaps and heaps of difficulty and angst but they overcame all with love. I wish that she also gave that detailed attention to the straight women in the group as much as straight men like John or Andrew. But that is just a minor complaint. A nice read and a great feeling good conclusion.

    All Shane Perkins ever wanted to be was a hero. But after a career-shattering decision to go down fighting, Shane comes home from the hospital to four empty walls, a pile of money, and a burning desire for someone to miss him the next time he gets hurt in the line of duty. He ends up an officer in the small town of Levee Oaks, and, addicted to the promise of family, he makes an effort to reconcile with his flighty, troubled sister. Kimmy makes her living as a dancer, and her partner steals Shane's breath at first sight.

    This book was particularly great in that half of the story's timeline is parallel to the previous book, thus adding a back/extra story to it. I just couldn't get into Shane as much as Deacon and Crick but I really loved the character of Micky. I know a person exactly like him. It was painful to watch (read) him. I have to say there were a bit too much of crap upon crap heaped upon them, but they prevailed and that's what I think counts. I am glad that Deacon doesn't have to worry about the next door anymore!
    on to the next!
