Review: Return of the Dragon by Alex J. Webster

Return of the Dragon by Alex J. Webster

★★★★½ Return of the Dragon by Alex J. Webster is a bloody good ride from start to finish. Vampires have no doubt made a comeback in popular fiction, but some critics have noted the toned-down nature of these depictions, as opposed to the more sinister and terrifying versions of generations past. Alex Webster is clearly a student of those older ... Read More »

Slip back into the shoes of ... Read More »

Review: Seasons of Pain by Imowen Lodestone

Seasons of Pain by Imowen Lodestone

★★★½ Content warning for violence, sexual and partly graphic; general sexuality; abuse, substance use, and some forms of self-harm. Jesse M. Lelrick is a Witch; well, she was a Witch. To anyone who asks, who has any right to ask, she’ll tell them flatly that she doesn’t do that anymore, she gave up her powers, and now she’s just your ... Read More »

Review: End Time by Daniel Greene

End Time by Daniel Greene

★★★★½ A savage, unforgettable zombie thrill ride. From the very first scene of Greene’s gruesome, entrancing thriller, readers know that they are in for one hell of a ride. When a deadly virus begins to spread in the DRC, one might think that all the petty rivalries, policies, and ambitions of people would be put to the side for the ... Read More »
