Heart of Steel by Meljean Brook

The last we saw of hero, Archimedes, he was being forcibly placed into zombie-infested territory by the lovely captain on the Lady Corsair, Yasmine. He had dared to challenge her authority, so what better way to punish him than feed him to the wolves – er, undead flocks of flesh-munching humans?

Fast-forward to the fate of captain, my captain. It seems karma wasn’t very happy with Yasmine’s behavior regarding Archimedes, so to even the karmic playing field, unknown invader(s) board Yasmine’s ship in search of a sketch – a sketch she stole from Archimedes – and destroy the ship during their exit.

A Devil in the Details by K.A. Stewart

Jesse James Dawson is a Champion. No, not like from the Queen song. I’m talking a man who fights big bad demons on behalf of those foolish enough to sell their souls but wise enough to realize, “Oh, hell. I sold my soul to a demon! I need help!”

He may not be rich in a financial sense, but he’s rich in spirit. He’s an honorable man with a good family and a kind heart. He’s even friendly with Axel, the demon-of-unknown-class who likes to appear as a squirrel for a lively game of chess, both literally and figuratively. Jesse has just accepted a contract to help an aged sports star when all hell breaks loose. Champions are disappearing from around the world. The demons aren’t playing by the rules, and Jesse is likely the next target.

Fathom by Merrie Destefano

I stay up until the candle burns down and the light fades away.

Then I go back to sleep. Knowing that ghosts and monsters are real.

In fact, some of them are my very best friends.

Fathom by Merrie Destefano takes the normal concept of a legend and completely flips it. It’s a fabulous premise: creatures of the sea* tell the tale of a Kira Callahan, a young woman who mourns the loss of her mother and sister. The legend so captivates a group of these sea creatures that they take the dangerous journey from their homeland (I use the term “land” loosely) to Crescent Moon Bay where Kira lives.

Battle Royale vs The Hunger Games. Brought to You by Off the Fang!

There’s been a bit of the kerfuffle on the interwebs (imagine that!) over The Hunger Games. It seems there is this awesomely gory book called Battle Royale (made into a movie the year before The Hunger Games was released in theatres).

Here’s the description of Battle Royale, per Amazon: In an alternative future Japan, junior high students are forced to fight to the death! Koushun Takami’s notorious high-octane thriller is based on an irresistible premise: a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are provided arms and forced to kill one another until only one survivor is left standing.

Seeking a Bloodthirsty Monster. Brought to you by Off the Fang!

The Internet is full of memes bemoaning the current state of vampires in fiction. Phrases like “real vampires don’t sparkle” and pictures of Antonio Banderas, Kiefer Sutherland, and the dude who plays Spike (I’m too lazy to Google his name, but our wonderful editor Carol has informed me it’s James Marsters and that he should be listed by name because he is the best. I called her blasphemous and have challenged her to a duel. Due to aforementioned laziness and my knack for cutting myself with sharp objects whilst wielding them, I am acquiescing and adding his name.) Read More »
