Ley Line Drifter by Kim Harrison – A pixy tries to solve a mystery and gets more than he bargained for.
★★ I liked how cute it was but there was a lot of repetition.
Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost – Bones is asked to hunt a ghoul couple in New Orleans by its Voodoo Queen. Of course, things aren’t as they seem.
★★★ I liked the darkness and that Bones was able to carry the story without Cat.
Dark Matters by Vicki Pettersson – Dark & Light come together when agents from the opposite side come together.
★ No surprises.
The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten by Jocelynn Drake – A vampire fights to keep her domain under her control while she is being framed.
★★ Loved the violence, for instance, check out the quote below:
The fledgling was still in the attic, chained to the wall. For a moment, I wondered if I should go up and free, but quickly shook off the thought and got into the car. If she couldn’t find a way to free herself, then she would never survive in my world.
but the story lacked cohesion.
Two Lines by Melissa Marr – A glaistig does her best to fight temptation and stay mortal.
★★ I really liked the parts with the glaistig’s family but other than that, the story was repetitive and boring.
