review 1: I have had fun with the Clockwork Century series up until this point. They are good, pulpy, steampunk/zombie stories, of which there are far too few. This one fell short, however. Sure, there are great set pieces and pretty good descriptive writing, but it felt like Cherie Pri...

review 1: Cherie Priest has good ideas but struggles to string them together. This book about a reforming air pirate and a madam secreting an experimental sub out of New Orleans is poorly edited so I'd give it a miss. She makes a stylistic choice for a lot of things to happen "offscreen"...

review 1: The first true sequel to Boneshaker, about a surly sap-addicted orphan going into Seattle to maybe die or maybe seek his fortune, he isn't quite sure. He sobers up accidentally and is befriended by Seattle's other teens, the hyper genius Houjin and the kind and gentle Zeke, and...

review 1: Pretty good Victorian-era New England Lovecraftian horror novel. The novel is engaging and reads like a speeding bullet. The book is written as a series of journal entries/correspondences. I found this kind of distracting and I thought it actually made the pacing a bit too quick ...

review 1: This was by no means a whole book, being only about 30 pages. And ... well, it was okay, but a lot of it really didn't make much sense to me. Mostly I guess because I can't understand how it's possible to build a machine and not know what it does? I mean that from a standpoint...
Clementine (2010)

review 1: A well-written well-paced adventure story. Quick and relatively simple in plot, 'Clementine' is more of a novella than an epic. Despite its brevity, the novel is a good introduction to some interesting characters and settings, being much more concerned with a wider scope of eve...

review 1: Since I was enjoying Cherie's Clockwork tale I decided to try another one of her series. This one moves at a much faster pace than the Clockwork series, most likely for a variety of reasons. Although I believe it's mostly because the story takes place in present time. Therefor...

review 1: Well, in my opinion, this book offers a cold, dark environment/feeling while reading this book. It has a very nice storyline and love the plot. The way the narrator,(the main character Rektor Sherman), speaks makes you feel cold in the inside, telling you about how he doesn't hav...

review 1: The first time I tried reading this I couldn't get through it, something just didn't click. But my second go at it went more smoothly. I don't know, maybe the first time I just wasn't in the mood for the series...Anyways, the book is probably my least favorite in the series. That...
Ladra di sangue (2012)

review 1: PG-18. I can't give it a higher rating because of innuendo and language. However, if I was giving a rating based just on the snark - I'd probably give it somewhere between 4-5 stars. Not all vampires like other vampires - some are thieves and very good at their job. But the w...

review 1: 3.5 starsThis second instalment of Cheshire Red Reports is probably just as good as the first, but with work getting in the way and not being able to pick this up again til much later, I lost all the momentum coming up to the finale that the ending was a bit flat.As much as I lik...

review 1: Did you watch History Channel's ratings breaking Hatfields and McCoys mini-series? Did you read a book about the famous feud? Then you might like this book. Two feuding families must send members to get a will that will relieve who gets the valley.Of course, there is something...
