#Bookreview GUILTY PLEASURES by Laurell K. Hamilton #UrbanFantasy #Vampires

Back to work this week, so just a quick book review. I read this some years ago as part one of an omnibus edition of the first three in the series, ANITA BLAKE, VAMPIRE HUNTER. Having decided to have a paperback clear out, I wanted to read the rest of the book before adding it […]

Book reviews: #3 & #4 in Richell Mead’s DARK SWAN series #UF

I decided against reviewing these books separately, as it really only means much if you’ve read the earlier books in the series. I reviewed book #1 STORM BORN, and #2 THORN QUEEN already, and although each book is a separate story, there is one overall arc to all four, #3 IRON CROWNED and #4 SHADOW […]

#BookReview: THORN QUEEN by Richelle Mead #UF

I went back to work this week, a bit of a shock after 10 weeks off. This will be my new normal now I live in the Scottish Highlands: a 5 day clinic, almost solid teaching and a LOT of driving, which I undertook in my little horsebox which is equipped with full living facilities, […]

#BookReview – WICKED DESTINY by L.C. Hibbett #urbanfantasy #witches

Just squeezing one more review in before New Year, I thought this looked a little different to the usual diet of kick ass heroines, and I was right. The blending of the modern day setting with the old Celtic gods is well done, and setting the story in Dublin, Ireland, made for a fresh read. […]

#BookReview – UNICORN MAGIC by Roz Marshall – #YA #UrbanFantasy #VRgaming

In Feyland, not everything is as it seems… Feyland: a new computer game that allows Scottish teenager Corinne MacArthur to escape the sadness haunting her everyday life after losing a loved one. It’s a game where legends come to life, the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred, and the impossible becomes – probable.   […]

Book #review – THE JAGUAR KING by Anna McIlwraith #AugustReviews

Here is my first contribution to #AugustReviews.   The Jaguar King by Anna McIlwraith My rating: 3 of 5 stars Emma is a normal girl (yeah, right). She works in a dog shelter, and has a particular gift for connecting with animals. Pretty fortunate, as her roomie happens to be a jaguar shifter, and she’s […]

#AudioBook #Review – BURNED by A. Blythe #UrbanFantasy #Djinni

I had another long journey in the horsebox, and this audio book filled the time very nicely! Burned by A. Blythe My rating: 5 of 5 stars Alyse Winters is a djinni. More than that, she’s a highly rated covert operative for a supernatural agency. And she’s pretty impressed with herself, though to be fair, […]
