The Infinity Courts suffers from infinite questioning
2021-04-13 15:00 UTC by Michelle

The Infinity Courts by Akemi Dawn Bowman

There is no doubt that The Infinity Courts by Akemi Dawn Bowman has an interesting premise. After all, for as long as progress occurs, humans harbor a fear that the technology we crave could prove to be our downfall. So, when the Alexa surrogate known as Ophelia turns out to be real and has found a way to take over Ms. Bowman’s version of...

Jennifer McMahon is the queen of scary
2021-04-12 15:00 UTC by Michelle

The Drowning Kind by Jennifer McMahon

In her latest novel, Jennifer McMahon uses grief, mental illness, and a mysterious spring-fed pool to create another downright spooky novel that has become her hallmark. In The Drowning Kind, secrets and a New England lack of emotion rule the day, creating a family dynamic in which secrets trump everything. Combined with a house that is more...

Now THIS is how you end a novel
2021-03-19 15:00 UTC by Michelle

The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni

Good books have the power to make you ignore your to-do list and forget about your bedtime. Fantastic books do all of that but also make you think about them constantly so that normal interactions or sleep become a thing of the past. The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni is a fantastic book.

For one thing, Kiva is such a sympathetic character. After...

Red Widow is no Tom Clancy novel
2021-03-18 15:00 UTC by Michelle

Red Widow by Alma Katsu

Alma Katsu typically writes horror novels, so imagine my surprise when I find out that her latest novel, Red Widow, is a spy thriller. Not only that but she used her 35 years as a spy/analyst in the CIA as fodder. With that type of experience, I had high hopes for this look at modern-day spycraft. Unfortunately, much like her last horror novel, I...

Namesake ends a fabulous duology
2021-03-17 15:00 UTC by Michelle

Namesake by Adrienne Young

Namesake by Adrienne Young is the second half of a fabulous duology involving one of the toughest heroines you will ever meet. Fable is not just physically tough, but she has the mental fortitude to go up against the most heartless of merchants/mercenaries. This time around, we get to see Fable pit her wits against even more cutthroats and...

Down Comes the Night
2021-03-16 15:00 UTC by Michelle

Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft

Down Comes the Night is Allison Saft’s debut novel. As a debut, it is a perfectly adequate story involving two war-torn countries on the brink of another disastrous war and two enemies who learn to look beyond the surface to see the truths lying underneath. As an enemies-to-lovers fantasy, there too is it acceptable. While the story fails...

Phoenix Flame disappoints
2021-03-15 15:00 UTC by Michelle

Phoenix Flame by Sara Holland

While the first book in the Havenfall series was adequate, I hoped Sara Holland’s sequel, Phoenix Flame, would focus more on what I liked and less on what I didn’t. Unfortunately, she doesn’t. Phoenix Flame is a rather boring sequel with nothing really new to learn.

In fact, there isn’t much of anything in Phoenix Flame....

Competence strikes a wrong note
2021-03-13 16:00 UTC by Michelle

Competence by Gail Carriger

As the third book in the Custard Protocol series, Competence by Gail Carriger delivers exactly what you expect from any novel by Gail Carriger. Silly but sweet characters, fun dialogue, crazy mystery, and fun antics are all there in spades. Plus, as the most pragmatic character of the group, seeing her fellow Custard shipmates through...

Havenfall is perfectly acceptable
2021-03-12 16:00 UTC by Michelle

Havenfall by Sara Holland

Havenfall by Sara Holland is a perfectly decent young adult fantasy with a bit too much hand-wringing for my taste. This was always going to be the case when you have a main character suffering from a severe trauma that tore apart her family when she was younger and when this main character must act like an adult for the first time ever. Except,...

A Well-Behaved Woman disappoints
2021-03-11 16:00 UTC by Michelle

A Well-Behaved Woman by Therese Anne Fowler

Ever since Jim and I went to Biltmore Estate for our honeymoon over two decades ago, I have had a strange fascination with the Vanderbilt family. Therefore, I opened Therese Anne Fowler’s A Well-Behaved Woman, her story about Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont, with eagerness and anticipation. Unfortunately, what I found between its pages was...
