Review: Fury’s Kiss (Dorina Basarab #3) by Karen Chance

Fury’s Kiss is the third novel in the Dorina Basarab series, but it also fits in well with the Cassie Palmer series. If you’re new to both, I strongly recommend that you read both in order together, because they tend to interact a lot more than you might expect. Continue reading

The Drawing of the Three is the second book in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. It’s an epic series with a huge following, and yes I do feel bad that it’s taken me this long to read the series. I wish I had read it sooner. Continue reading

Review: Death’s Mistress (Dorina Basarab #2) by Karen Chance

Death’s Mistress returns to the life of Dory Basarab. Dory is a lot of things. Stubborn. Protective. Witty. Dhampir. The list goes on. In this novel, Cassie finds herself in a bit of a predicament. She wants to, no has to, protect her friend at all costs, but naturally there’s a complication to that. Thankfully Dory isn’t the type to back down, and she’s got some handy contacts that she can call on for information. Continue reading

Review: Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant

Into the Drowning Deep is the second book in the Rolling in the Deep series by Mira Grant. I know sometimes you can skip the novella that comes before a novel, but trust me: don’t do that here. If you haven’t read Rolling in the Deep, go read that before you start Into the Drowning Deep. It’ll have so much more impact if you do. Continue reading

Review: Shadowland by Karen Chance

Shadowland is one of the many novellas in the Cassandra Palmer World – and it is absolutely worth reading! It’s the fourth novella in the series with Pritkin being the main perspective. It’s set between A Family Affair (one of the Pritkin novellas) and Hunt the Moon. But seriously, make sure you don’t skip A Family Affair, because it adds much needed context. Continue reading
