Return Man by V M Zito

a review by Jade Hounsell The USA has been divided into two; the East has become a safe haven from the West, which is now a wasteland filled with the resurrected dead and called by the survivors, the Evacuated States. Henry Marco is a former neurologist and by choice has chosen to live the last four years, since the outbreak, in the Evacuated States. He had his reasons for staying during the evacuation; he found his wife’s crashed,…

Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison

a review by Jade Hounsell What can I say but I seem to getting a whole heap of smut, smut, smut books of recent! Forget Fifty Shades of Gray (although I have to admit to never reading this series); Dragon Bound has hot sex scenes with a sexy shape-shifting dragon! Pia has been blackmailed by her ex into stealing something from a powerful dragon’s treasure den. Pia being clever takes but a single penny from the vast horde (which includes…

Department 19 by Will Hill

a review by Jade Hounsell Jamie Carpenter is just your average 15 year old, that is until he witnesses his father being killed by a group of men dressed in black, like SWAT, on his front lawn. Jamie has no idea who these men are and why they killed his father and nobody is very forthcoming with the answers. Two years on and Jamie is still struggling to come to terms with his loss, and dealing with being bullied at school, having no friends and…

Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh

Guild Hunter series book 4 a review by Jade Hounsell I have to say Archangel’s Blade threw me a bit, I was expecting another book to be based around Archangel Raphael and Elena, however Nalini has decided that she will do what she did with her Psy-Changling series and expand on other characters found in the previous books. Cannot say that it wasn’t a pleasant surprise though and am now hanging for when she does one on the blue angel…

Blaze of Memory by Nalini Singh

a review by Jade Hounsell Book 7 in Psy-Changeling series Be warned what I am about to say may seem like a huge criticism, however already being a fan of Singh’s Guild Hunter series, it’s really not. Most of Nalini’s books follow the same common thread, boy with a troubled past meets a girl with a troubled past, they get thrown together by some sort of dilemma, they fight their attraction, then give in and have some sexy times, dilemma gets…

Bonds Of Justice by Nalini Singh

a review by Jade Hounsell Book 8 in Psy-Changeling series Bonds of Justice is book number 8 in the Psy-changling series and my second, so again huge apologies if I am missing any key information from the lead up books! And no, I still haven’t gotten around to reading the first six books, bad me. Ok, that said on with the review, the two main characters in this book are human Max Shannon and Justice-Psy Sophia Russo. Max is a damn good New York…

Sending by Isobelle Carmody

a review by Jade Hounsell The Sending is the 6th book in the Obernewtyn Chronicles, or the seventh I think for overseas readers. There really is no point in reading this book as a stand alone; you really have to read all the others in the series to understand what is happening and the key characters. Believe me reading the rest of the series will not be a chore; Isobelle really has created a captivating world that is very easy to be lost in. I…

Kiss Of Snow by Nalini Singh

a review by Jade Hounsell Book 10 in Psy-Changeling series Kiss of Snow, the tenth book in the Psy-Changeling series deals with the building relationship happening between Hawke and Sienna. This was very much touched upon in the last book, Play of Passion, but from my understanding has had the foundations set up in much earlier book/s. Hawke is the Alpha Pack leader for the SnowDancer wolf pack. Hawke lost the woman who would have been his mate…

Oracle’s Fire by Mary Victoria

a review by Jade Hounsell Oracle’s Fire is the third in the Chronicles of the Tree series and delivers resolutions to the problems the characters have faced in the other two books, Tymon’s Flight and Samiha’s Song. So in saying that, I must follow with this book is definitely not a stand alone, the others must be read to have the best understanding of the whole story. The Tree is the entire world. And that world is dying … After Samiha…

Samiha’s Song by Mary Victoria

a review by Jade Hounsell Ok I have to say that I really didn’t give you much in the way of plot with Tymon’s flight, that really is because so much happens within it that it would really be too hard to for me to define it for you in a short review. Same is to be said for this one, so again I will give you the blurb on the back cover then tell you what I think: ‘Tymon leaves his new home and his beloved Samiha to complete his Grafting studies…

Glass Houses by Rachel Caine

a review by Jade Hounsell Book One of The Morganville Vampires I was at Supernova in Melbourne this year when I was given Glass Houses, the first book in the Morganville Vampire series for free and what can I say but very clever marketing! Upon finishing the book, I actually went out and brought the other 9 in the series. Yeah, I’m a sucker I will admit it! It’s just that even though these books pretty much (but not quite!) wrap at the end of…

Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck

a review by Jade Hounsell The third book in the series, Tiger’s Voyage, picks up about a month on from the last one. As a warning, I will be mentioning some events here that were in the first two book so if you haven’t and are intending on reading them please do not continue reading. Ren still has lost all his memories of Kelsey despite all of her best efforts to try and help him remember. If that wasn’t bad enough, Ren cannot stand…

Tymon’s Flight by Mary Victoria

a review by Jade Hounsell Chronicles of the tree book one WOW! I cannot believe that I have never heard of Mary Victoria before I received Tymon’s Flight . I was totally blown away by it but when it came down to sitting and writing this review I got to thinking what happened in this book to make me like it so much? In all truth while there were a few major events I couldn’t think of why that would have had me so enthralled, then I…

Deadline by Mira Grant

A review by Jade Hounsell Wow, I’m not too sure where to start with Deadline. Initially I was a little unsure when I saw that this book was based around zombies, but I was blown away from how good it was. Guns, action, news reporters, bloggers, government conspiracies and, of course, zombies all rolled into one fast-paced and fast-flowing book. Also not having read the first book, Feed, I thought I may have trouble keeping up with some of the…

Witches of the East by Melissa de la Cruz

A review by Jade Hounsell The Witches of the East live in North Hampton, a place of rolling green fields, pristine beaches and rustic farmhouses, is the sort of town the modern world seems to have forgotten. The place is not listed on any map and is shrouded in fog year round. making it hard to view from sea or land. Directly across from the township is Gardiners Island, long ago abandoned and left to ruin. The island has only one building; a…
