I love the Mercy Thompson series. Night Broken might be the book eight, but the writing is still crisp, the action thrilling and even though Mercy is now married, the romance is as engaging as it’s ever been. The love between Adam and Mercy is awesome, they are what true love is all about. I said in my review of Frost Burned (book seven), that it was better than River Marked (book six) and Night Broken continues in this vane, it is in back on par with earlier books in…

The Darkness of Shadows by Chris Little

The basic premise for The Darkness of Shadows by Chris Little is that protagonist Natalie is out to murder her father. This is how the book begins, throwing us straight into the action without knowing who, what or why, even leaving a description of Natalie until a later chapter. It is a while before we learn that she walks with a cane, and longer before we are told that this down to a knee injury from years previous. However, getting back to the issue at hand, she is determined to…

House of the Rising Sun

I have heard good things about Kristen Painter’s writing in the last few years, having had her House of Comarré series recommended to me multiple times (unfortunately that is still somewhere in the mile-high TBR mountain). Naturally, I jumped all over this book when it was released – and not just because of its gorgeous cover, it’s so pretty! Don’t be deceived by the woman on the cover though, we’re led through this tale of murder, mystery and romance by a distinctly male voice. It’s a great start to the…
