One of the key reasons why Feehan’s GhostWalkers series is so outstanding is its overarching theme of outsiders learning how to trust, love and build relationships. Paranormal romance at its best!
Writing with precision and grace, Delaney strips away the characters’ secrets until the raw truth of each is revealed.

Given how many problems and challenges this book opens up for white America, it is fitting that the conclusion provides a whole range of possible responses.
It's all delightfully Mad Max-ish, and more than a tad gothic, with the added joy of yet another feisty female warrior who is always going to win the war but not the battle. It is also – no surprise here – a very fast read.
Harry Blue is certainly a character worthy of a series, and while NEVER NEVER is complete in itself, Patterson and Fox leave just enough hanging at the end so that readers will be clamoring for further resolution. Hopefully more will be seen from this dynamic author duo --- not to mention Harry --- in the near future.
EGOMANIAC was everything I love about a Vi Keeland book. A heroine you want as a friend, a hero that is equal parts hot-ass alpha male and dominating a-hole, and a romance that is believable and enviable. If you don’t have this book already, you must run and get.
The side characters are brilliant in their own right, each one playing an intricate role in the tale. But as with each novel in this series, it’s the compulsive, insecure but constantly self-improving protagonist Melanie who is the show-stealer...
The book’s stumbling block is its obsession with America’s view of itself, which leads the author to rely on a number of clichés...Nonetheless, this call to arms regarding the need to get audacious and adventurous about U.S. economic growth is a thought-provoking, entertaining read.
Baird’s book, for all its careful research, is clearly intended in large part to echo that political fantasy – no doubt a smart move in a book written during the heat of the calamitous 2016 US presidential campaign.
A page-turner that’s enriched by the author’s obvious familiarity with the intricacies of combating 21st-century terrorism.
Powered by brilliantly rendered characters, an intriguing topic (parasomnia), and a darkly lyrical narrative that captures the melancholic tone of autumn in New England perfectly (red maples in their “death throes”), this novel has only one weak point—its highly improbable conclusion, which may leave readers unsatisfied.
A story that moves from thrilling to sobering, fascinating to downright scary—trademark Preston, in other words, and another winner.
All in all “Fifty Shades Darker,” was a good read. The sequel is better as the characters grow and we delve deeper into Christian Grey’s psyche.
Watching these two characters on their journeys of discovery while slowly falling in love makes for the best possible reading experience!
Michaels continues her streak of writing believable and heartwarming novels that just keep getting better.
Taubes makes a convincing, well-documented case against the modern carbohydrate-rich diet. Limiting their intake is an important factor in longevity, not merely as a matter of weight control. An important book that merits—and will likely receive—broad circulation and discussion.
... there are long-awaited developments in the relationship between Dina and her sexy werewolf neighbor Sean. A truly cracking good time!
Heart-stopping action, cutting-edge science and biblical history combine to make for an outstanding read that includes everything from an extreme attempt at creating an energy source like no other to a possible solution found amidst a pack of elderly elephants in the African jungle.
I loved this book for so many reasons. It makes you feel as if you are part of what is going on. It has characters that you love and want to know more about. It’s heartwarming and fun.
