Review: Bloodhound

Review: Bloodhound

June 9, 2013 Review 2 ★★★★½

BLOODHOUND takes place approximately a year or so after the events of TERRIER. Beka is a fully fledged member of the Dogs but hasn’t been having too much success with partners of late. Time is not wasted on this fact however, and we a pretty quickly launched into a plot line that is faster and even better than the TERRIER’s. Read more »

ARC Review: The Girl with the Iron Touch

May 27, 2013 Review 9 ★★★★

THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is going to be a hard book to review. Mainly because I love this series and characters and world so much I’m struggling to think of anything sensible to say. So many emotions are connected to this book, where old characters return and adventures ensue. And there are dire situations where you are left wondering if that character just died or not.
