Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

SPOILER WARNING: This review is for the eleventh book in the Sookie Stackhouse series and may contain spoilers for the previous ten books.

ARCHANGEL’S CONSORT (GUILD HUNTER) By Nalini Singh [Review]

Archangel's Consort

ARCHANGEL’S CONSORT is the third book from Nalini Singh featuring former-Guild-Hunter-now-turned-angel Elena and the Archangel Raphael. Singh’s writing is strong and her descriptions and characters are well drawn, but this book gives a new reader the feeling of walking into the middle of a conversation. This book immediately succeeds Archangel’s Kiss and follows Elena and Raphael in their growing romance and burgeoning problems. Things start […]

It’s one of those series that makes readers wait patiently for long pauses between books and scramble to the stores when the new book is out. BLACKVEIL: BOOK FOUR OF THE GREEN […]
