Review: Lover Eternal [Black Dagger Brotherhood #2] 3/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Fantasy , Paranormal , Romance / June 15, 2020

Review: After the big disappointment that was Dark Lover, the first of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I think J. R. Ward is growing on me. Very slowly.

Dark Lover was basically plotless (if you don’t count getting into a woman’s pants a plot), exaggerated and cringy. Lover Eternal is still all of those things but, like, on a smaller, more bearable scale.

Review: Dark Lover [Black Dagger Brotherhood #1] 2/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Fantasy , Paranormal , Romance / June 10, 2020

Review: Dark Lover by J. R. Ward is the first book of the Black Brotherhood series and it is a okey book if you compare it to other in its genre. It has passion, it has danger and Ward is trying to do something different with the whole vampire thrope which is awesome. But reading Dark Lover after reading Queen of Fire by Ryan was like eating plain green salad after eating delicious, juicy stake with barbeque sause and mouth-watering seasoning.

Review: Lord of the Flies 3.5/5 (2)
Adventure , All , Classics / January 11, 2020

Review: Every time I write a review on a book that is considered ‘classic’ or the sort I’m afraid I am missing something or that, I don’t know, I’m not smart enough to understand the underlying message of the story. Or maybe, just maybe, the fact that some books are considered outstanding in their themes, characters or plots doesn’t make them any less boring to death.

Review: The Last Wish [The Witcher #0.1] 3/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 23, 2019

Review: I had The Witcher series by Andrzey Sapkowski on my reading list for years but somehow I never got around to reading it. After finishing the Kate Daniels series I needed something new and different so here we are, jumping into another world of magic, mythical creatures and a man that desperately tries to escape what he is.

Review: Magic Triumphs [Kate Daniels #10] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 23, 2019

Review: Every good things must come to and end, or so people keep saying. Magic Triumphs is that end for the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I’m devastated. Not because it was bad but because it is the end, no more books about Kate ;( I’ll have to console myself with the Iron Covenant but it is not the same… )

I started reading the series last year after a friend recommended it. I ate up the first six books like my life depended on it. The story, the main characters, the love drama, the action – it all just clicked in place for me. Until these series I have always hesitated when asked ‘What is your favorite book or series?’ because there are so many I like. But now I know I won’t hesitate (too bad the whole series doesn’t have a name )

Review: Magic Breaks [Kate Daniels #7] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / February 14, 2019

Review: Oh, how I missed Kate. Why did you stop reading it if you missed her so much, you’d ask? That’s a good question to which I have no answer. But I am so happy I found the time to get back into the world of Ilona Andrews that I am having hard time writing this review.

Magic Breaks is what you’d expect (in a good way) – Kate being badass smart-pants, risking her life and making impossible choices; Curran being sexy and protective and very scary when he roars; the Pack being well, dicks for the most of the time (

Review: A Discovery of Witches [All Souls #1] 3/5 (1)
All , Fantasy , Romance / November 14, 2018

Review: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness was a bag of corn and green peas for me. You know what I mean. You don’t? Well, it means that it has a lot of things I liked (like corn) and a lot of things that made me ugh (like the peas). But the fact that I stayed until 9 a.m. to finish it suggest that maaaybe there was more corn in the bag than damn green peas.

I learnt about the book from the TV show with the same name. Now that I’ve read the book I’m astounded at how closely the TV Show is following the book plot – more than any other book screening I’ve ever seen. I really liked the show – well, most of it – so I decided to check out the book since we all know books are always better. And that’s where the bag of peas and corn appeared.

Review: Claiming The Alpha [Wild Obsession #2] 2/5 (1)
All , Erotica , Romance / April 13, 2018

Review: Claiming the Alpha by Adriana Hunter was the second part of the short series ‘Wild Obsessions’. When I say short I am being literal. Both parts are around 80 pages each and looking back at them now they should have been one book. There wasn’t enough action in each to make them look accomplished apart.

As my first attempt at romance/erotica I am rather happy with my choice. There were some good moments that help me gain new perspective as ti how to write romantic/sex scenes and as a writer I am really curious about that. The book was in both Nikki and Jax’ point of view which was an excellent choice since if Adriana Hunter had stuck to one it wouldn’t have worked out.

Review: Magic Bleeds [Kate Daniels #4] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / April 1, 2018

Review: Magic Bleeds, the fourth book of the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, is pretty much as close as you can get to pure joy 😀 I gave it a few days before I started this review because I wanted to sound a bit more impartial but then I thought “Wait a minute, if anybody is reading this they want to know MY opinion not to read facts and summaries.” So here it is: This. Book. Is. Awesome! Deal with it!

The story starts with Kate who, as you remember, owes Curran a naked, home-cooked dinner. I know you all waited for that moment with your heart beating fast, wondering if Ilona Andrews we’ll decide to make it comical scene or a sexy one.

Review: Magic Strikes [Kate Daniels #3] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / March 29, 2018

Review: If I put as much passion into work as I put into reading… well, I might start going places 😀 I need to find a job reading books and getting paid for it…

Anyway, I finished with Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews, third book of the series about Kate Daniels, about 8 am this morning. Yes, I did read all night. Sue me. Now I’m so hooked that I may do something stupid like stay up all night before a work day. I haven’t felt so pumped up since the last Skulduggery Pleasant book but the latter lacked something Kate Daniels’ books are full of – romance, sexual tension and heavy dose of heavy language. Everything else is there – the humor, the fighting, the mystery, the monsters and of course the bad-ass characters.
