My Review The Wolven is the the third and final novel in The Keepers trilogy.  The novel focuses on the youngest sister, Shauna, the Keeper of the werewolves.  Werewolves are being slaughtered in New Orleans, in horribly brutal ways that leave Shauna and Danyon (the alpha of two of the murdered were) baffled.  Neither can […]

My Review As Harvest Moon is an anthology of novellas by three different authors, each will be given a rating of it’s own. A Tangled Web is the first novella in the book and is the story of the Greek god Hades and his bride Persephone.  The usual tale is that Hades essentially kidnaps Persephone, […]

Permanent Obscurity

Permanent Obscurity
Posted 20 October 2010 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Permanent Obscurity is written in the “as told by” style, which was perfect for the dark, psychosexual themes of the book.  The author’s disclaimer of vulgarity is accurate, but fully in keeping with the the story as it unfolds.  Set in the East Village of NYC, Dolores Santana and Serena Moon are two […]
