The Marked

Awful things happen. Sometimes you’re left alive, but it leaves a Mark. They aren’t tattoos, and they express your hidden powers—and your hidden desires. They grow as you use them. And someone wants them very, very badly… I’m not quite sure where I first came across Saintcrow, probably via someone on twitter. I know someone […]

The Library at Mount Char

Part of my RIP reading Carolyn is a librarian. Or at least that is word her Father uses. That is the term she uses for herself. But what she does is not what you might think when you hear the word librarian. Most librarians, after all, don’t murder people as part of their work. Maybe […]

Hounded

Book 1 in the Iron Druid Chronicles Atticus O’Sullivan is not what he appears to be. He is not 21 years old. He is not American. His name isn’t even Atticus, but when you are trying to keep your real self a secret, both from humanity and from the old Celtic gods then it pays […]

Discount Armageddon

An InCryptid Novel ; #1 Verity Price comes from a family of cryptozoologists, or monster hunters. Generations back they used to be part of The Covenant of St. George but they broke with that secret organisation when they realised that not all crptids are monsters and killing isn’t the only answer.

Chimes at Midnight

An October Daye novel ; # 7 Part of my RIP IX reading. Goblin fruit is a pleasant drug for the fae, if they are pureblood that is. Changelings only need to taste it once and they are addicted. It always kills them in the end. And for humans it is pretty much instantly fatal. […]

Ashes of Honor

The October Daye series # 6 My first book for this year’s RIP challenge1 It has been almost a year since the events of One Salt Sea and, understandably, Toby still hasn’t recovered one hundred per cent. I won’t say what from, because spoilers, but if you’ve read the book you’ll know. But she is […]

One Salt Sea

An October Daye Novel ; 5. Generalised spoiler warning in effect for the first four books, because, well obviously. Toby has come along way since we met her back in Rosemary and Rue. Back then she was keeping her head down, avoiding her past, not thinking about her future. She wasn’t really doing much past […]

Late Eclipses

The fourth October Daye novel. If you haven’t read any of the previous books in this series then this review will contain spoilers. If that doesn’t bother you continue on, but I would really recommend reading the whole series, the more you get to know Toby and her world the better it becomes. At the […]
