What I’m reading…Retribution by Sherrilyn Kenyon – Stay Tuned
Since Fire’s Ice is almost finished, I thought I’d treat myself to some reading/reviewing time.
Retribution by Sherrilyn Kenyon – I am a huge SK fan and a sucker for series. When I googled the title to read the blurb, I also found less than stellar reviews, but having had a couple of those myself…I prefer to make up my own mind. About to start chapter three and I’m surprised at the venom in Abigail. Most of the complaints I’ve read were about heat level and chemistry between her and Jess.
In my opinion, Dark Hunter books tend to compress the relationship building in a shortened time frame, while the backstory can span thousands of years with some characters. I like those little glimpses, but I’ll be surprised if SK is able to believably change that venom in Abigail to lust/love in a very short time span. This may be one of those stories that can’t fully be told in one book. We’ll see. Anyway stay tuned for a review on this one too. Probably here.
Bonnie by Iris Johansen – Haven’t started it yet, but I really liked the other two and so want to know what happened to Bonnie.
Wings of Fire – Caris Roane – This one is part of a series and I haven’t read her previous books, but I will now. Looking forward to Jean and Fiona’s story and Luken’s too.
Picked these up for review:
The Bastard by Brenda Novak – I remembered being in on the title discussion on Facebook and since I like her suspense novels, and the blurb intrigued me, I thought I’d give it a try. Love it so far. Look for a review at YGRR soon.
Heart of the Druid Laird by Barbara Longley – Guest of YGRR and the blurb intrigued me. Love Scottish historical romances and wanted to this one a try. Thumbs up so far.
