Update 04/10/13

I have been somewhat MIA the last 2 weeks (had a lot going on in my personal life) plus I have become somewhat addicted to the In the Company of Shadows (ICOS) series. This is a four-part m/m series written by Santino (Sonny) Hassell and Ais Nym. It is currently a free read (details can be found below) and is something of a colossal  undertaking as every entry is absolutely […]

As They Slip Away by Beth Revis

A novella set in the same world as Across the Universe, this gave a very different perspective to the inhabitants of Godspeed. This was narrated by Selene, a minor previously unnamed character in the series. As They Slip Away helped to explain some of the underlying plot threads in Across the Universe and gave greater depth to some of the events. Selene (the rabbit girl) is a tragic character who […]

After the cataclysmic events of the first book, Janelle is trying to pick up the pieces in a world that has gone to chaos. Still reeling after losing her father and best friend, Janelle […]

Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin

I have heard really good things about this author but I was not overly wowed by this book, though the writing was good and I would still consider checking out her other works. I really liked the idea behind this story but the execution of it fell little flat for me and I found the story to […]

Undone by Elizabeth Norris

Okay I much prefer this universe when Ben is the narrator as opposed to Janelle! This novella covers some of the events in Unravelling (from Ben’s perspective) and a little after, as a bridge to the second book Unbreakable. In Undone, we get to see some of the events through Ben’s eyes and I really liked getting to hear his take on things as I had some problems with Janelle […]
