Counterfeit Magic by Kelley Armstrong

This novella is narrated by Paige, who was the narrator of Dime Store Magic and Industrial Magic, books 3 and 4 of the Women of the Otherworld series. Paige doesn’t seem to be the most popular narrator of the series but I have always liked her so it was good to get back inside her head (so to speak). Of course, Lucas, Savannah and Adam also feature prominently in this […]

The Dark Tide by Josh Lanyon

The Dark Tide, the fifth (and final book) in the Adrien English series, follows on directly from the events of the previous book Death of a Pirate King. While the previous book had my heart in a vice throughout, this book was much easier to get through, though it did have its fair share of angst. Adrien is recovering from his open-heart surgery, after having gone into cardiac arrest when he was shot […]

As luck would […]

The Hell You Say by Josh Lanyon

The Hell You Say is aptly named. Getting through this book was sheer torture – not because the content or writing was lacking – but because the characters were really put through the ringer. I had heard prior to reading this book that the angst levels were greatly increased but that warning did not prepare me for just how emotional I felt when I finally put down this book. Bravo Josh […]

A Dangerous Thing by Josh Lanyon

A Dangerous Thing was a really strong follow-up to Fatal Shadows. The mystery was clever and involving and I really liked the (slowly) developing relationship between Adrien and Jake. The beginning of the book kicks off several months after the events in Fatal Shadows. Adrien has been spending a lot of time with Jake Riordan, the closeted cop from the first book who saved his life. They are currently involved in something of […]
