Review Date: 7/30/2009


If you are at all familiar with Simon R Green's writing style, you will definetley recognize it in this book. However, it is a fabulously written book, with fast paced motion and and interesting concept. I fully reccomend it!

A collection of short stories from the world of the Black Jewels, including one about why Sataen is feared so much and what happens with Janelle Angeline and Dameon after the book. If you like the series, a must read.

Sherri S. Tepper is a unique and entertaining writer. Her books are edgy, rife with enviromental and social warnings, yet hte story still shines through and over powers the somewhat overdone messages. Her characters are interesting, and this story in particular has a great twist. A must read!

Haydon's work is always excellent, and this book lives up to her standards. Though aimed at kids, it still resonates with adults. I fully recommend this imaginary travel log to anyone who likes fantasy, and especially to fans of Haydon.

A cute little story for kids, it follows the adventures of a little Viking named Odd. Without really sacrificing much in the way of mythology, Neil Gaiman is able to make terrifing Norse gods like Loki, Odin and Thor into a fun story. Of course, I'm almost thirty, so I have no idea if a kid would actually enjoy it, but I did.

Though rather predictible, this book was very cute. Gloria is a slightly old fashioned woman teaching herself how to be a modern one. The dialogue is snappy and amusing, the characters are entertaining..and the ending leaves you guessing! I enjoyed it, and any fan of vampires, romance and comedy will enjoy it too.

Sebastian was the same kind of story you'd expect from Anne Bishop---overly powerful,kind, yet misunderstood people meeting people who (though weaker) love them anyway etc. Not bad, but if you want that kind of story, read her Black Jewels trilogy first. Then come back to this one.

The final instellment in a giant series, it lived up to the hopes raised by the other books. A must read if you liked the rest of the series.

Review Date: 9/12/2010


The story was good--a fairly typical end of the world hero story, but it had some nice twists. However, the author over explained certain things--but didn't really clarify others, leading to a confusing mess. Worth reading--but might need a re-read to really take it all in.

Review Date: 10/26/2009


Lisa Kleypas's novels are always a treat. The characters are believable and entertaining. You want them to succeed--especially when they are such dark, complicated characters as Nick Gentry (the main male in this story). Definitley a must if you like regency romance.
