If You Like Chicagoland Vampires… Read Black Wings

If You Like Chicagoland Vampires… Read Black Wings You know how some books seem to take a little while to get started? The world is so elaborate or the language is so stylized that it takes some time to get used to it so you can really get into the story. For me Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires is the exact opposite. I instantly feel at home in that world and feel like those characters are old friends. Christina Henry’s Black Wings is another...

If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré

If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré Last year when Written in Red came out, it seemed to pop up everywhere for me. That’s when I knew I had to read this first book in a new series by Anne Bishop. What I found once I started reading was an interesting take on the supernatural, mainly shifters, that puts them in less of the human light and more in touch with their animal natures. Meg is a human, a cassandra sangue, a blood prophet on the run...

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb Okay this maybe cheating since I am recommending two series instead of one, but in my defense both series are by Karen Chance, are set in the same world, take place simultaneously, and have characters who crossover in both series. So really I am recommending the body of work of one author. My favorite characteristic of Kim Harrison’s The Hollow series is not only the strong female protagonist, but also...
