Something Strange and Deadly

Something Strange and Deadly

My Review Steampunk and zombies!  This may sound like an odd combination, but it is one that works!  Petticoats and parasols mixed with steam-powered machines and pulse bombs that kill zombies?  Yes, please! The story is set in the midst of Philadelphia’s high society in 1876, the time of chaperoned dates, petticoats, bustles, séances, and burgeoning […]

My Review This was a beautiful book, albeit one that was hard for me to read for reasons that have nothing to do with the quality of the book and everything to do with me.  It is the story of Caroline Marcum, who has come home to care for her mother in her final days. […]

My Review I just received this book in Friday afternoon’s mail and was finished by Saturday morning.  I just couldn’t put it down!

My Review I love anything and everything Emma Mills writes and this latest book is NO EXCEPTION!  She creates believable worlds out of the unbelievable.  She creates characters that are rich and varied and always remind you of someone you know in your own life.  The story takes you in twists and turns and you […]

(logo linked to today’s post) He’d lost way too much time.  Some of his nets were already under so much water that if they were fouled, he really couldn’t do anything about it now. From A Matter of Mercy by Lynne Hugo, Kindle Location 623 (logo linked to today’s post) top ten characters i’d want on […]

My Review Chrysoprase is the second novel in the Chalcedony Chronicles, a time travel saga that blends created time travel mythology with ancient history.  This book was definitely my favorite of the two written thus far. The mythology is much more developed in this book with much more significance given to it.  There are a lot of twists […]

My Review Carnelian is the first in the new Chalcedony Chronicles, a new adult series that promises a bit of a sci-fi flavor in the form of time travel.  I have mixed opinions about this book, mostly about the level of emphasis paid to different aspects of the plot. Mari is a college freshman, hours away […]
