Happy Hour of the Damned (2008)
(Amanda Feral, book 1)
Mark Henry
"More brisk, batty, raunchy, and catty than a room full of cougars with a margarita machine. Happy Hour of the Damned is funny as hell."

The Labyrinth of the Dead (2010)
(Penemue trilogy, book 2)
Sara M Harvey
"Labyrinth of the Dead is a sensual, apocryphil nightmare - an exquisite adventure that manages to be both epic and personal, sweet and vicious."

The Armored Saint (2018)

Myke Cole
"Brutal and lovely -- an inventive and poignant fantasy that's rich with keen characters, set in a vivid, fascinating world."
thumb
Blood Orbit (2018)
(Gattis File, book 1)
K R Richardson
"At turns both cyber-bright and grim as old noir, Blood Orbit is a clever procedural with a killer cast of cops and robbers, on an alien world that’s somehow very, very close to home."
thumb
Annex (2018)
(Violet Wars, book 1)
Rich Larson
"Annex is a ferocious sci-fi fairy tale--a warm, thrilling adventure about what happens after the end of the world. Both epic and intimate in equal measure, this one's a joy and a blast, from beginning to end."
thumb
Breach (2018)
(Cold War Magic, book 1)
W L Goodwater
"With a vintage vibe and modern magic, Breach is a perfectly unique spy thriller, with an exceptional cast and a killer setting that's colder than the Cold War ever dreamed of being. It's one hell of a mystery, yes. But it's also a whole lot of fun."
