This was something of a cult classic, with several terms that entered the (somewhat) common vernacular. It talked about concepts of free love, polyamory, and "What if Jesus came back. Would we recognize him or crucify him again?"
TOUCH OF THE DEMON ended up being a crazy ride full of loyalty, betrayal, love and loss. Enemies become allies, allies become enemies and those on the sidelines end up being more then they seem. So much is revealed yet so many new questions arise. Just when you think you know what is going on Kara is finally caught in the summons that brings her to the demon realm. I very much enjoyed the descriptions and the building of the demon realm. It was easy to get into it and feel that you were there with the characters. I admit that there was some pretty slow spots in the beginning of the book but so much happens its hard to focus on that for to long. I am kinda speechless and cant think of anything else to say without giving away any amazing spoilers. Kara will never be the same and the whole game has changed dramatically. Wow not what I expected at all and HOLY crud do I need the next book.
Many years ago, a bunch of refugees were traveling, when their ship crashed on Earth. The survivors formed a secret council known as the Underworld Council. The council is composed of incubus, sirens, werewolves, vampires, and valkyries. Most recently the council has allowed humans to have a seat in the council. Lukas Sebastiani is an incubus. His father is the president of the Council. Lukas works for Sebastiani Security. Scarlett Fontaine is the lead singer in a rock band. She is also a siren. Scarlett has been on the road for a long time and is ready for some rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, someone has other plans. Someone is attacking the people around Scarlett. It is up to Lukas to protect Scarlett, though who will protect him from Scarlett? Taste Me is the first book in a brand new series called the Underbelly Chronicles. Not to be mistaken for paranormal but this book is definitely urban fantasy. It is darker, edgier, sensual and way hotter than paranormal. I thought Scarlett and Lukas were hot together, though the romance did not start until about middle way into the book. The story line surrounding the attacks was exciting. While I did enjoy this book and liked the various different characters in this story, I did wish that there was more happening. It did feel like the first book in a series with the build up to where the next book would be even better. Taste Me is a yummy morsel to what author, Tamara Hogan has to offer.
I liked this book...but not as much as Hotel World. Part of me thinks it went on too long...but I like how Smith is playful with words and kind of teases the reader. She's interesting. But I recommend Hotel World before this one.
I continue to be underwhelmed by Cerebus. High Society is readable and occasionally very enjoyable. But it is not a great graphic novel. It is a good story arc in an ongoing book. It fails as political satire because nothing feels real. The character haven't developed enough to mean what Sim wants them to mean. Jaka is totally without development. No one's ideals are shown to have any meaning; it's all just empty blather. So why should Cerebus be crushed at the end of the book? The book is only notable in context. Historically important. Formally inventive. Diverting. I will keep reading if only to watch the book evolve. Funny animal book to great american novel to wack job religious tract.
Another wonderful installment in the Cree Black series, and I think I liked this even more than the first. This one was less about Cree and her struggle to deal with the death of her husband, although I think she's slowly coming to terms with his loss, her interaction with the spirit world and her own self more. She acts as a white spectator of the world of the Diné/Navajo people, and Hecht's description of modern reservation life comes across as very realistic. He shows a people creating their own nation within a nation against difficult odds. I'm not familiar with the culture personally, but it struck me that Hecht had done his homework, portraying the Native American characters with sensitivity but without being pitying, cliched or patronising. Once again, the balance between the protagonists' psychological states and the supernatural shifts back and forward, and the scientific arguments for metaphysical phenomena is very believable. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, set in San Francisco, and I hope Hecht will write some more!
The Jill Kismet series is dark, gritty, and violent urban fiction with an S&M element. This is the first in the series, although some readers may enjoy it more after reading the Dante Valentine series, beginning with Working for the Devil.
