Review: The Line

The Line (Witching Savannah, book 1) by J.D. Horn

the-line

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Edition Reviewed: eBook
Amazon: Paperback | Kindle
Goodreads: The Line (1)

Move over, Sookie Stackhouse—the witches of Savannah are the new talk of the South. Bold, flirty, and with a touch of darkness, debut author J.D. Horn spins a mesmerizing tale of a family of witches . . . and the problem that can arise from being so powerful. As Charlaine Harris’ series winds down—and as Deborah Harkness’ series heats up—Witching Savannah is new contemporary fantasy that will be sure to enchant new readers.

Mercy Taylor, the youngest member of Savannah’s preeminent witching family, was born without the gift of magic. She is accustomed to coming in a distant second to the minutes older, exquisite and gifted twin she adores. Hopelessly in love with her sister’s boyfriend, she goes to a Hoodoo root doctor for a love spell. A spell that will turn her heart to another man, the best friend who has loved her since childhood.

Aunt Ginny, the family’s matriarch, would not approve. But Mercy has more to worry about than a love triangle when Aunt Ginny is brutally murdered. Ginny was the Taylor family’s high commander in the defense of the bewitched line that separates humankind from the demons who once ruled our realm.

A demon invasion looms now that the line is compromised. Worse yet, some within the witching world stand to gain from a demon takeover. Mercy, entangled in the dark magic of her love spell, fighting for her sister’s trust, and hopelessly without magic, must tap the strength born from being an outcast to protect the line she doesn’t feel a part of...

In this riveting contemporary fantasy, Horn delivers the full betrayal, blood, and familial discord of the best of Southern gothic.


Review:

It doesn't seem like too many new Urban Fantasy series are coming out lately. Authors are either expanding beloved series, ending them, or moving into Paranormal Romance and Young/New Adult. So that's why The Line caught my eye. It takes place in Savannah, one of my favorite Urban Fantasy cities next to New Orleans. Then it threw witches into the mix. And if I'm honest witches are my guilty pleasure for Urban Fantasy. True, I'm a hard core werewolves and vampires fan. Deep down witches will always hold a secret place in my heart. Sadly very few things that utilize witches make them believable and well . . . not childish. Or over the top Satan's spawn!!

That's why within a few pages of The Line I was hooked. Ohhhh, so hooked. Mercy Taylor is promptly introduced while giving her Lair's Tour. While it's unclear if she really needs the money, one thing is clear this book is gonna have drama! The main character is from a prominent—filthy rich—family. The Lairs Tour is a job Mercy created where she goes around taking people on tours lying about the city and places. Making up or spinning stories off the top of her head. To be honest I think it's brilliant and I would hands down take that tour! With the rich writing, I felt like I was sweating it up in Savannah and indeed on that tour. After the tour was done I was all to ready to enjoy the rest of Mercy’s life and world.

Boy is The Line all about the drama. Crazy soap opera family drama! One Life to Live and All My Children may be off the air, but The Line finally delivered the fix I've been hungering for! All the character's have some serious issues, and what I'd fondly refer to as zany personalities. From Mercy's crazy as hell head of the house, slushed up aunt, and gay uncle there's plenty of personalities to butt heads. Though the big fail for me was how evil Mercy's sister is, and at no point was there any love on the sister's part towards Mercy to make me feel for the relationship. In that one huge wicked-sister plot point was the books fatal flaw.

Yet, the drama mixed in with all the mysteries, multiple plots, and drama—yes loads of drama—made it all better. Yes. There was plenty of predictable points, but Horn definitely made up for it and pulled a few over my eyes. Now I'm not going to ruin anything and won't dig to much into the plot. However, I will say there are plenty of players here and it kind of made me think of Game of Thrones witches edition. While there wasn't any dramatic deaths, everyone is a player and the succession for the “throne” is on. (OK, I was watching Game of Thrones while I read The Line, so take the comparison with a grain of salt. They both definitely have drama.)

Mercy is a pretty nice character, at times she comes off as a martyr and I wished she'd get her bitch on and smack down on some people! But there in lies the breath of fresh are that The Line brings to the genre. Mercy is a genuine and nice person, one who wants to see the best in people. Even when her own romance is tanked and everyone she knows has betrayed her somehow. The drama, characters, plot, and the magic here is soooooooooooo refreshing. When the last page turned this unearthly glowing happened and I was transported to my happy book place that had been unreachable this year with my book funk. (At least from new titles/authors.) The Line made me feel refreshed and brave to go out and try new authors again! Bravo Horn! Bravo. Take my money.

Sexual Content: Plenty of sexual humor, and some dark themes. The love scene was actually fairly mild.

 
5/5- Fabulous, a beautiful obsession!

***All cover art may not be final.***

It’s scary when it’s Christmas shopping time. No really. I try to avoid it at all costs. I’ve done my gift shopping and only want to run into the store for necessities. Though with a shopaholic mom I don’t always get what I want.

Worst we braved a Saturday sale. I wish you well all of you crazy shoppers, may you not get stepped on or trampled.

Let’s look at some pretty covers to make us all feel safer.


Black Wolves by Kate Elliott

Genre: High Fantasy

Shera’s thoughts:

How exciting that Kate Elliott is starting up a new series! Yeah!

Sure I could make fun of some things. But this cover is pretty darn fierce.

Oh, and the sword covering the title, perfection.

Burn by Paula Weston

burn Series: The Rephaim, book 4

Shera’s thoughts:

I love the constancy with this series, when they’re all lined up there is no doubting that they’re all from the same one.

Personally this one is my favorite so far. It’s probably all of the colors.

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

ink-and-bone Series: The Great Library, book 1

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Shera’s thoughts:

Funny thing is the lions smudged into the blue with faint glowing red eyes—wicked awesome!—popped out at me more then the books at the bottom. Overall I love the spattered/speckled and worn look of the cover. Very cool. Though the line on the left just seems out of place.

Can’t wait!

Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire

Previous book(s) in series:

Goodreads | Amazon


pocket-apocalypse Series: InCryptid, book 4

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Shera’s thoughts:

There’s always been something sexist about these cover. Sexist as in those old romance time covers. Or better yet those movie covers with the girls clinging on to the “heroes’” leg.

While this one isn’t as bad as some of the others. Why is this girl mucking around in the jungle with short-shorts, her top half on done, and no extra layers? Look at the guy!

Oh, the art looks nice but I have complaints about their faces.

Yes-yes. Grumble-grumble.

Resonance by Erica O’Rourke

resonance Series: Dissonance series, book 2 

Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: N/A

Shera’s thoughts:

Oooo, I love it! Covers that take objects, in this case cool folded paper, and them look interesting is awesome. Better is how the designer(s) made the type work with the picture.

Bravo! This is how typography should be done!

On that note does anyone feel a cover makeover coming for book 1? This is a complete change of design and feel for the series.

Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Shera’s thoughts:

Every time I see a new cover for this series my heart leaps for joy! Especially now that the later books will be getting a makeover. Bout time.

This reminds me of a snowier version of Heart of Obsidian, and it matches nicely with the previous winter cover Shield of Winter.

The male lead is cover, and looks darn sexy, and the art is amazing, and the covers tie in together. Well done. Well done.

Well I leave this Cover Coveting on this lovely little tease. Hope everyone is enjoying the season.

Review: 13 to Life

13 to Life (13 to Life, book 1) by Shannon Delany

13-to-life

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult
Edition Reviewed: Ebook
Amazon: Paperback | Kindle
Goodreads: 13 to Life (1)

Everything about Jessie Gillmansen’s life changed when her mother died. Now even her hometown of Junction is changing. Mysterious dark things are happening. All Jessie wants is to avoid more change. But showing a hot new guy around Junction High, she’s about to discover a whole new type of change. Pietr Rusakova is more than good looks and a fascinating accent—he’s a guy with a dangerous secret. And his very existence is sure to bring big trouble to Jessie’s small town.
It seems change is the one thing Jessie can’t avoid.


Review:

It can not be said that I didn't try. Because I did!! I bought almost every book in the series, so I had to try!! Problem is this book had too many tones of Twilight. No it's not Twilight, I am well aware that there are many points that Twilight never had. However, the main lead is undefined, and down right stupid. The male love interests aren't interesting and I'm pretty sure in the real world any REAL friend would tell their friend that those boys are trouble and they're already treating you liked dirt. Dump him.

The overall hate that the students give the main lead about her mother dying in a horrific death is . . . crazy. I'm sorry no matter how messed up the people if someone died in a horrific accident they wouldn't treat an innocent bystander like a leaper. Maybe because the main lead opened her arms wide to the girl who was mean to her, and also is the reason her mother died. No one is a saint. Someone caused your mother to crash you might forgive, but just shrugging it off is ridiculous. Now I'll admit that I did not make it to the end of this book so maybe she finally stands up for herself and even has that emotional break.

Main reason is the drama was so stupidly formed that anything being based off of it was nothing but one giant joke! The main lead was basically a Bella clone, maybe a tad more personality. However, I will forever curse Twilight and any book that thinks a reader needs and  empty shell for a lead. We don't. The love interests were terrible from the get go, making one of the most painful love triangles I've seen a while. Plot . . . I'm not sure where it was going. It didn't catch my attention at any point and in the end I have better books waiting for me. 13 to Life kicked started my new reading resolution to stop reading books that I'm not interested in. Thank goodness for my new found self control/resolution.

Sexual Content: Kissing, making out, and sexual humor . . . not sure if anything else happened.

  
1/5- I couldn't finish it or wish I hadn't.

Review: Blade Song

Blade Song (Colbana Files, book 1) by J.C. Daniels

blade-song

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Edition Reviewed: eBook
Amazon: Paperback | Kindle
Goodreads: Blade Song (1)

Kit Colbana - half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades - has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters - especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails - she’s dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee...


Review:

“My sword arm is mighty.
I will not falter.
I will not fail.
My aim is true.
My heart is strong.” - Kit Colbana

Wow! Blade Song hit sooooooo many good spots. There were a few minor things that did liken it to the Kate Daniels books. Male cat shifter leads. Two smartass leads with some serious family issues, and damage. Yet, it's nothing like Jennifer Armentrout's Half-Blood series to Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. No. The Colbana Files stands on it's own two feet. I couldn't get enough of it! The mystery, the world (I'll get to that), the romance, and more! Ah! I loved it! Kit Colbana is awesome, she's hardened and strong. But she's definitely a damaged and vulnerable soul, which makes for an interesting read.

However! There are some huge flaws here. Ones that I can not over look. First up, something so basic that it pisses me off the most. The grammar. I'm not sure if it's because I have a old copy or what, but the writing didn't flow. Either the sentence wasn't thought out enough, or a word was simply left out. Or “it” was before the word and after it, even though “it” didn't need to be there. (And it wasn't just “it”. It was “of”, “the”, and more!) So many basic grammar mistakes that I could not believe that an experienced author had them in her book. Honestly I'm not sure if that in later issues the grammar errors were updated, but I hope so. (Maybe if I connect my Kindle to the wi/fi and let it reload the book I might get a grammar updated issue?)

Second, some world building issues. First off it is never addressed if witches, shifters, vampires, and such were always out of the closet or if it was a “revelation”. It was cool that Daniels came up with NH, Non-Humans, as a term but never bothered to fill out the world. So I just assumed the spooks were always out. Most importantly is how Kit qualifies as a half-blood/breed? No really she's a Aneira, AKA Amazon, with a Aneira mother and a human father. It's never addressed some of the legends of how Aneira breed to get more woman warriors. So I kept wondering if there are Aneira men that are never mentioned? Are they a naughty secret they keep in haram houses? Or is the Aneira reproduction process asexual? But Kit's mom decided to have a kid the hard way?

Some might argue that I'm being picky about he world building. Sure. Sad thing is I can forgive bad grammar before I can forgive laziness in world building. (Or maybe forgetfulness?) World building is a huge job. Getting the mythology for an Urban Fantasy, or any Fantasy kind of book, isn't easy. Coming up with it and figuring out how everything applies is tough. But just because it's fantasy doesn't mean it should be forgotten, skipped, or simply never thought of.

Third. Repetitive . There were a lot of phrases and repetitive bits. Damn, was one. Also, every one who met Kit kept calling her a silly little girl. Now I know I'd take offense if anyone ever said that to me. Especially people you have to work with. However, after reading the term used so much I might just go ape shit crazy on anyone that ever uses those words to describe me. “Silly little girl!” Ugh. Or fool. “You're either brave or a fool.” Just. Stop.

Lastly, another repetitive thing. Kit passes out a lot, and has some “freak out” moments. Don't get me wrong I like my damaged character, so if there are some things in your past that wig you out because of they're just that scary, I'm for it. But Kit couldn't deal most of the time. Having blackout moments when she'd wig out, even violently attacking people in her fear. It felt like she should have died years ago, especially in her line of work. She couldn't seem to deal with anything on her own. Damon is great and it was “bonding time”, but I wanted to see Kit be all “bad memory this is how I deal with it”! Plus, it took a lot away from the important freak outs. So instead of going “shit girl that's awful I feel you”, it was more like “oh, another freak out. Great.”

In the end I'm honestly eager to read the next book. The mystery was chilling and I want to see some more blood shed by the villain(s) presented in this book. More! Also, Damon went from annoying as hell asshole to one that's sexy. He still annoys me. Despite how a feel about rushing the romance, especially in an Urban Fantasy, Daniels' does a good job here. The world has potential, and if those few glitches are fixed all will be fine. The characters presented here are awesome and I want to get to know them—though it stings that one of my favorites already died. The witches of this world are pretty cool and I'd like to get to know them more. Overall the Colbana Files is a series I want more of and have high hopes that it will pick up. After all there isn't a single Amazon lead that I've enjoyed this much.

Sexual Content: Sexual humor, some dark themes, sex, and general adult content.

 
2/5- Average/disappointing, library check-out.

So hopefully I’m planning to keep my post regular from now on. Though I’ll probably take Christmas and such off.

Hope you’re all enjoying yourselves! Are you doing any holiday prep? If so good luck, and remember to take breaks.

Now on to the covers.

Shera’s thoughts:

It’s strange to be seeing this but I miss the style of the Sookie Stackhouse books. And most of Harris’s other book covers.

They were stylized, unique. this is just . . . meh. There’s nothing I like about it besides the authors name.

But that’s the issue. The cover isn’t trying, it’s living off of the authors name.

Shera’s thoughts:

Fits the series nicely. Despite myself I don’t dislike it, for what it is it works. My biggest complaint is that it doesn’t really ring as a paranormal romance. It’s putting off a mystery thriller from the 90s.

Galenorn has been blessed by the cover gods! I say it every time. This time however I have to complaints.

1) Nothing paranormal on the cover. A dragon is the lead character! Play with that!

2) That creepy dude leering at the girl. He looks displaced and, again, creepy.

“Neil Gaiman” not only pops more on the cover than the authors name, but his name is in the blurb front and center.

That said I LOVE that the feather is turning into birds. The background is the perfect kind of city sunset to go with it.

Beautiful!

Review: Talon

Talon (Talon, book 1) by Julie Kagawa

9780373211395.indd

Genre: Paranormal Young Adult (Romance)
Edition Reviewed: eBook
Amazon: Hardback | Kindle
Goodreads: Talon (1)

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they're positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.

Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.

Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon's newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.


Review:

Up front. Talon is a title I have been beyond eager to get my hands on. Normally I don't to “pre-reviews” let alone ones with gifs. But I did, my Cookie Monster burning his cookie/meth on his spoon mouthing “come on, come on” is exactly how I felt about a new Julie Kagawa book. I was jonesing for this book hard! Kagawa took fairies and rocked it! She took vampires tossed them into a futuristic dystopain causing my mind to: BOOM!

So imagine my surprise when I wasn't won over. The romance was handled well, and it was pretty intelligent for a love triangle even if all the pieces had to be shoved together in the first book. Though I was annoyed by the insta-attraction between Ember and Riley. Because their dragons have an instinct for each other. It was just more romance than I had expected. Don’t get me wrong I did enjoy the romance, swooned and liked that both Ember and Garret told the story. Giving me sooooo many swoon moments. Then Riley came in to tell his parts towards the end, letting readers no the triangle is not going to be set in stone. Fabulous job.

What detracted from Talon was that the world wasn't fully developed, and some of it was too contrived. Kagawa can deliver on amazing worlds, and that was what I was most excited about. How she would weave a world of dragons. Don't get me wrong I gave Firelight a pretty high rating, but I knew going in it was all about romance and very little world building up front. Dear Kagawa has forced me to raise my standards where she is concerned.

The world outside of Ember and Garret's star-crossed romance felt . . . choppy and lacking at best. The brainwashing aspects of Talon weren't explored enough. Dante and Ember as twins felt hallow. Plus, that mentioned brainwashing is supposed to really kick into affect when Ember gets her “training” and eventual placement in the Talon organization. (Her placement was sadly obvious, but beyond laughable. No she couldn't.) St. George, the dragon slayer organization, had so much potential and some world building could have been used! Nothing beyond that beautiful romance was fleshed out. Which soon brought down my enjoyment of the romance and it took me more then two days to devour a Kagawa book! What?

In the end I expected more from Kagawa. My anticipation of the amazing world she would build out weighed my interest in the romance. Too many missed opportunities! Which is what ended up dampening my enjoyment of Talon. Though that cliffhanger really was amazing. And as a side note I was surprised how many grammar errors there were. Hmmmm. Talon is a lot better then a number of YA titles out there. However, Kagawa set the bar. I have expectations now. I'll keep my faith alive for the next book.

Sexual Content: Making out, kissing, sexual humor, and such. Overall pretty clean.

  
3/5- Adored it, just a few minor details held it back.
