REVIEW: Fireborn by Keri Arthur

Fireborn - Keri Arthur

Fireborn is the latest entry to the Urban Fantasy genre by Keri Arthur. As a huge fan of her Riley Jenson series, I eagerly waited for this book to land on my doorstep so I could dive straight into it. However, I was left with mixed feelings for this promising new series. The premise is good, the writing is good, the characters are great, but unfortunately there are just too many questions left unanswered leaving me confused and frustrated at the end. This is a real shame since it has all…

Happy Birthday

It’s a little difficult to categorise Happy Birthday. I’m not a massive proponent of the books needing to be categorised – if you enjoy them then what does it matter? Besides which, whatever it is, Happy Birthday succeeds at it beautifully. Phoebe Bowler has had better times. After being jilted at the altar by her long term boyfriend she barely has the means to keep hold of what was once their shared flat. Just as she finally seems to be getting her life back on track she finds out that she is living next…


REVIEW: The King by J.R. Ward

The King

I love Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and have since I picked up the very first book. The King revisits those first two characters we fell in love with – Beth and Wrath, several years on. Of course, 12 books into the series and a lot has happened to the lovely Beth and Wrath, from disabilities to assassination attempts. But also their relationship has been shown as under strain of late. This book takes us back to the characters, but also reinforces the difficulties the couple have been experiencing being…

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Time Untime UK

[color-box]Time Untime by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Dark-Hunter #22) Piatkus Books (7 Aug 2012), Hardback: 432 pages, Paranormal Romance Website • Series Listing • Amazon UK / US Rating: [/color-box] I am a really big fan of Kenyon’s writing and I have read nearly every on of her books. Her Dark-Hunter series hitting the top of that list. But I do find, that some books are amazing and some books are more middling. The non amazing books always disappoint because you know just how good Kenyon can be. And it’s not that…


[color-box]Lair of the Lion by Christine Feehan Piatkus Books (9 Oct 2012), Paperback: 448 pages, Paranormal Romance Website • Goodreads • Amazon UK / US Rating: [/color-box] Lair of the Lion comes across as a retweak of a very popular french fairy tail, Beauty and the Beast. This was one of the reasons I was very interested to read Feehan’s spin on it. Instead of France however Lair of the Lion is based in Italy, with powerful Dons, and impressive, dark Castillios. Isabella Vernaducci is determined that The Don will help her…
