Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry

Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry

Wow… I thought this would be a good book when I first heard about it, but it far exceeded my expectations.  Dead of Night was action packed, intense, emotional, and seriously effed up! When a prison doctor doesn’t feel that death is punishment enough for a notorious serial killer, he injects him with Lucifer 113, […]

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

Zombies?  Check.  Dystopian?  Check.  Victoriana?  Check.   All around awesomeness?  Double check!  Habel developed an amazing story.  Dearly, Departed was so different from other zombie books that I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a few.  The year is 2195, and the world has experienced drastic changes due to icy harsh winters, catastrophic storms, a second America […]

Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater

Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater

Oh man, this book kicks ass!  First of all, the cover totally drew me to the book – I love it.  And second, I’ve heard nothing but great things about Rihannon Frater.  I was not disappointed in the least with Pretty When She Dies.  It definitely isn’t a lets-go-to-prom-with-a-sparkly-vampire type of story (not that there’s […]

Review: Dust & Decay

Review: Dust & Decay

*Deep breath* O M G… seriously?  Jonathan Maberry has done it again!  Dust & Decay is the 2nd book in the Benny Imura series, and it was just as great as Rot & Ruin.  I feel like there is so much I want to say about this book, but don’t know where to even begin.  […]

Crave by Melissa Darnell

Crave by Melissa Darnell

Umm…. okay….. I’m a little torn on this.  Crave has a really good premise – a half witch, half vampire teenage girl struggling with what she is becoming, while falling in love with the one boy she’s forbidden to be around.  There are things I like about the book, but it also seems to be […]
