Night Broken – Review + Giveaway! Baby Mama Drama Rama!

When a book is quotable, I’m gonna quote! “Adam snorted as he pulled on a faded green t-shirt that said “I Heart Coyotes.” Yet another sign that folding my clean clothes wasn’t too big a price to pay to make him happy. He didn’t have any “I Heart Christy ” shirts–or I would have burned them already.” “I thought we should apply that kind of thinking to the matter of…

Mercy Thompson Graphic Novel: Moon Called Vol. 2 – Eye candy extraordinaire

It took me a little while to get around to reading the second and final volume for the Moon Called graphic novel.  What with no bookstores nearby, I wasn’t totally sure if I wanted to pay for a comic that I couldn’t see.  The first volume was beautifully illustrated, but I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy the story.  For me the Mercy Thompson series definitely suffers from FBS…

Guess who’s going to San Diego Comic Con yet again?! It’s me! W00T

This means tons of coverage on TV series, movies, games, and AUTHORS. I met Kim Harrison and Patricia Briggs last year and we made the news!! That was a lot of fun. Kim won’t be there this year unfortunately, but there is so much to do there with so little time. I had an absolutely fabulous time and I’m looking for this year to be even better! While last year’s…

Mercy 2 Finds a Groove

The second installment of the Mercy Thompson series shifts focus from the werewolves to the vampires.  This time her vampire friend, Stefan, decides to call in a favor from Mercy.  She risks life and limb to thwart an evil sorcerer-turned-vampire (as if vampires weren’t evil enough on their own) causing numerous deaths all around the city.  The supernatural cream of the crop are all involved to take this sucker down,…

This series may need to grow on you

Moon Called is the first book to kick off the very successful Mercedes Thompson series. While it follows the urban fantasy formula through incorporating vampires, shapeshifters, fae, and ghosts, it has the opportunity to differentiate itself with high quality world-building. The main character, Mercy, isn’t the prissy princess nor is she the leather-clad potty mouth badass. She works as a mechanic, getting her hands dirty the blue-collar way. She’s not…

This, my friends, is how you do a graphic novel adaptation

I originally read this comic as an ARC and then decided to purchase it immediately before I even finished it. Since I was reading the series via ebooks, I wanted something for Ms. Briggs to sign for when I meet her at San Diego Comic Con this July. I was going to try to get through the ebooks as fast as I could so that I could then also purchase…
