This book took me a while to finish. I have to say Stefano Ferraro gets it right about one thing; he is a hard man to love. In the end, I couldn’t help but like him and even sigh with happiness for Francesca and Stefano. Stefano is very alpha and kind of a throwback to the old alpha male ways.  No, Stefano isn’t a gangster but he is a throwback to Godfather ways when it comes to women.  He has this very dominating presence, demands nothing less than obedience, and of course, has no patience for people who question him. … Read more »

  I think this book has potential to become a favorite but right now it was good and liked it well enough. I am curious for more. I think this story spent way too much time on the instalust and not enough time explaining what was going on. I was confused about everything except that Piper got all hot and gooey every time Zane was around. I mean I would have liked more explained about the Reaper war that is coming. I would have actually liked a training montage. I think this story is broken up into short volumes so… Read more »

So, the kind publishers at Ace sent me an Arc of Grave Matters, which is the second book in this series. Can’t really dive into the second book without at least reading the first! I hadn’t heard of this author before the second book fell in my lap, and it looks like this is really her only series. It looks like she has a few short stories and a standalone, but overall, she hasn’t published much. I have to say, though, that I absolutely adored her writing and voice. Unfortunately, the book covers several points of view, and despite that… Read more »

I’m a huge fan of monster hunter style novels, and this one did not disappoint. The main character, Deacon Chalk, hunts monsters for a living and uses a strip club he owns, Polecats, as a base of operations. His bartender is an ordained priest and his right hand woman is an expert at electronic information gathering. Together they make a formidable team. I loved how the author brought these elements together and added a wannabe rookie monster hunter with a silly name, a supernatural legend out of the bible, and a supernatural threat that may be too powerful for them… Read more »

[Review] Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey

19 October

When I first started Sandman Slim I was under the assumption that this would be just another paranormal detective novel. I was wrong. Sandman Slim follows the actions of James Stark after he has returned to the mortal realm, from hell. And what did he do in hell, battle monsters, slave to demons, oh, and he was a hitman for one of the princes of hell. But he is much more than that, he is also a magic user of significant strength. I was captivated by the whimsey and humor of the protagonist’s exploits. There really was never a dull… Read more »
