This was a great detective thriller. Both King and Lane are strong, flawed, women; and are a good foundation for a series of thrillers. I’ve already bought the second book in the series, and will be starting it soon.
Easy to read, suspenseful, and very sexy. This is the first book by Heather Hildenbrand that I’ve read, and I am buying the next book after I finish this review. I have it free through kindle unlimited, but when I love a story this much, I happily support the author! If you are a fan of PNR, this is a fantastic read!
That went by way too quickly! Korrigan seems to have a lot going on, and a lot that has gone on in his past. This was short, but very good! I am eager to learn more about Korrigan, and what it is that’s brought him to this point in his life.
It’s easy to see why there is a comparison to Girl on the Train and Gone Girl. Behind Her Eyes is told in the same manner. Chapters come from different people, and from their point of view. What isn’t the same as either of those is the way it ends. Not the way it twists at the end, but the EXTRA twist at the VERY end. I’d figured it out just over halfway through, but I didn’t take it far enough. I absolutely love that this had me fooled. It’s hard to do when I read as much as I do, and Sara Pinborough got me good! Great story, deep characters, and excellent narration by Anna Bentinck, Josie Dunn, Bea Holland, and Huw Parmenter.
I was not expecting that!
This latest in the Black Year Series does not disappoint. I spent much of this book audibly gasping in surprise and saying, “Whaaaaa…?”. So GOOD!! My emotions went from low to high over and over, and left my jaw on the floor at the end. I was way off about how I thought this third book would go, and have no clue as to what could follow in the final season of the Black Year. I can’t wait to find out! This is still one of my favorite urban fantasy series that I’ve read.
Even though I’ve pre-ordered the book, this review is based on the ARC copy of Red Spring that I received for my honest review.
I absolutely love the main character Nancy, and her best friend Edna. It is not often that we get to read about older women having the same type of self discovery and adventures as we find in other urban fantasy stories. Instead of they typical young woman or man going through some changes and discovering something fantastic about themselves, we instead are witness to two older woman who have the fantastic thrust upon them, seemingly without any warning.
The story that follows as Nancy and Edna try to navigate the strange and curious tasks placed upon them is not only scary and intense, but fun and light-hearted at times, too. If you’re looking for a great book that gives the urban fantasy genre some much needed substance and depth, look no further. I’m already excited for the next book featuring Nancy and Edna!
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of A Moonlit Task for my honest review. Thanks to Tom Hansen for this privilege.
The story is told in the way that Interview with the Vampire is told, through a main character telling someone else. In that sense, nothing actually happens in this book. What we do get is the whole story that has brought us to where the book starts, and hopefully into what the next book will be.
The story, or backstory, is interesting and exciting. I had a difficult time pushing through the second half of the book until the final few chapters. I am unsure what changed there, but I think I was finally getting anxious to know what happened to get us to the main characters current state. I pushed on, and was not disappointed.
If you like books like Red Queen, Throne of Glass, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, you will most likely enjoy this book very much.
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
