Review: Fragments of a Unicorn's Soul

Fragments of a Unicorn's Soul
Fragments of a Unicorn's Soul by J.R. Loveless

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars. Great beginning, but the story was much to short to do the plot justice. I felt like the ending was rushed which ruined my enjoyment.

Review: Divinity

Divinity by Bryl R. Tyne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars rounded up to 4.

Very well written short story (it didn't feel short while reading it) about a commitment shy vampire and his current co-worker who seems to be weaving some sort of spell on him (with lollipops!).

Not sure if these are considered spoilers, but just in case;

There was an undercurrent of...something that I just couldn't put my finger on, but worked so well with this story; I think it was Mesmer/Anton's nefarious plans for Martin. Though Martin was without his own set of issues, since the story is told with his POV, I felt more for him than Mesmer. I wasn't too sure I wanted the main characters to even be together by the end; it was definitely a love/hate relationship! It will be an interesting eternity for these two, that's for sure. :)

Review: 18% Gray

18% Gray
18% Gray by Anne Tenino

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What didn't I love about this book? Okay, some of the high-tech words threw me off, but that's it! Enjoyed the futuristic look at a divided United States, loooved Matt & James (all that delicious tension, the chemistry was smoking hot!), and James mutant brain is awesome. Giggled in quite a few places (the 'think I swallowed a bug' was seriously an lol moment...good thing I was all by myself at the time and noone could laugh at me!) and who didn't get a kick out of the horse and nympho nun?

So glad this is the first in a series so I can visit these characters (plus new ones!) and world again!
