Book Review: The Evolution of Mara Dyer

The Evolution of Mara Dyer is the second book about Mara Dyer, supposed crazy teenager, only she’s not. For some reason she has these powers, although admittedly she seems to have killed a few of her friends and several animals. So of course, she’s a little crazy even though the reason people think she is such is somewhat accounted for. Following the first book, Mara wakes up in the hospital and seems to be on track to a residential home. She tries to keep herself calm and figure out a way to get home sooner than later. She manages to […]

Blue Moon is the second book in a series about a girl named Mallory who is part of a group called Omega, who keep track of the zombies that live underneath New York City.

Book View: The House of the Scorpion

The House of the Scorpion has been on my to-read list for a long time, an author I knew was good but just had not gotten around to reading yet.

Farmer builds a world where clones are harvested and used as slaves or to replace body parts. Most of them have a surgery that limits their brain power and makes them easy to control. Matteo is one of the few that has […]

Book Review: Endless Knight

Book Review: Endless Knight

Endless Knight is the second book in a new series that mixes apocalypse with fantasy and a dangerous game that involves equally dangerous players. Evie is one of those players, one of the Tarot cards – the Empress. The first book ends bloodily and this one picks up right where it left off, but this time Death plays a larger role and boy am I glad he does. It really is quite nice to see a love triangle where there are two equally “bad” boys competing for Evie’s attention, and one for her life. Not only is this amped up, […]

Book Review: Claire De Lune

Book Review: Claire De Lune

In Claire de Lune, Claire starts to have some weird changes on her 16th birthday. She’s getting rashes and having all sorts of weird cravings… and her mom drops the bomb – they’re both werewolves. Unfortunately, her new crush has a father who is trying to find the cure for werewolves and will stop at nothing to try and capture the lone werewolf who has been murdering humans near where Claire lives. I like the idea of only women being werewolves – as we often see the opposite. The plot moved forward and there’s a bit of mystery as to which […]
