    {Review} Skin Game by Jim Butcher

    Published by Roc Genres: Urban Fantasy Pages: 485 Format: Hardcover Buy on Amazon I look forward to the Dresden Files. One of the few books I pre-order these days. I’ll start off by saying that I threw a tantrum when I found out that he would be with MAB. It was such a relief to get away from her in this book. What can I say about this read? I expected a little more growth from Harry. He was chilling on Demon reach with plenty of time to spare and couldn’t create some new spells other than his fuego (fire) spell? Not to mention that’s he still gets his ass…

    {Review} Days Gone Bad (Vesik, #1) by Eric R. Asher

    Genres: Urban Fantasy Format: eBook Buy on Amazon I’m just going to jump right in. The plot was weaker than a newborn baby’s┬áneck. The story had no forward moving plot points to get the story going. At 30% we finally get moving. Oh, so, slowly. The main character, Damian, likes to joke a lot.

To top it off, Damian, the fledgling necromancer, could barely cast a spell (or whatever he’s supposed to do) and…

    {Review} The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig

    Published by Angry Robot Genres: Urban Fantasy Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads I liked it, but it wore me so. Too many folks messing up the show. The story was dark, the story was grim, but I like this author, you should try him. The writing was solid. Had a nice flow. Incomplete sentences are a go. There were snake people who bit, and licked and spit. Touch their venom and you are hit. Mookie is the muscle man. Loyal to a fault. Keep to the plan. He’s bad and badder when he’s blazing. The action scenes were quite amazin’. Nora hated her daddy so, the chip on her…

    Book Review: Poseidon’s Children by Michael West

    Blurb: Man no longer worships the old gods; forgotten and forsaken, they have become nothing more than myth and legend. But all that is about to change. After the ruins of a vast, ancient civilization are discovered on the ocean floor, Coast Guard officers find a series of derelict ships drifting in the current-high-priced yachts and leaking fishing boats, all ransacked, splattered in blood, their crews missing and presumed dead. And that’s just the beginning. Vacationing artist Larry Neuhaus has just witnessed a gruesome shark attack, a young couple torn apart right before his eyes….at least, he thinks it was a shark. And when one of these victims turns out…
