Spectered Isle by K.J. Charles

Let’s speed past the fact that I’ve been on a 1.5 year hiatus from blogging and have fallen out of writing for fun or even reading[1. books, that is, I’ve read plenty of fanfic over the hiatus. Some of it even novel-length!] and let’s get right to the review: This is the first in KJ

Weekly reading, vol. 12

I mean, eventually I’ll get back on schedule with these. For now, here’s what I read for the week of February 14-20, 2016. Dreamspinner had a sale on three Kim Fielding books over the weekend, and I couldn’t resist picking them up. I immediately read Astounding! , a m/m romance between a scifi managzine editor

Weekly reading, vol. 11

Totally forgot to post this on Sunday, whoops! My first book for this week was Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper , a contemporary romance starring a transgender PoC protag with a death metal band and a wannabe artist with a history of bad boyfriends. It’s got super hot sexytimes and a slow-burn emotional

Necropolis by Jordan L. Hawk

This was a VERY exciting book! Not only because of the body horror human-animal hybrid situation, but because Whyborne and the gang get out of the country and head over to Egypt! Where it turns out Dr. Christine has a Secret Boyfriend! And there are, like, curses or something! It’s a little predictable in that

In Discretion by Reesa Herberth

This is a short little scifi horror/romance story about two ex-lovers who meet again on a space station while on the run from angry zombies, assassins, and their own unresolved issues (it wasn’t a happy break-up). I really liked this! I wish it was longer, as I didn’t entirely understand the background conspiracy plot which

Stormhaven by Jordan L. Hawk

All the wonderful things from the first two Whyborne & Griffin books are present in this third one, plus more. Action, adventure, romance! Spooky monsters! Stormhaven has a heavy Lovecraft influence, this time in a “dweller of the deep” kind of thing. Gods being summoned from the depths of the sea, (more) secret magic cults,
