BOOK REVIEW

UNDEAD AND UNSTABLE by MaryJanice Davidson
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 5, 2012

"Davidson's latest seems to be less interested in presenting new action than in laying groundwork for further volumes in her series (Undead and Undermined, 2011, etc.). The same mixture as before, but with more Game of Thrones references."
A vampire queen misses her late friend…until he mysteriously returns. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

UNDEAD AND UNDERMINED by MaryJanice Davidson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 5, 2011

"Davidson (Me, Myself, and Why?, 2010, etc.) writes in a jocular voice with teenage attitude (think of a YA novel for mature audiences). Readers are likely to be divided between love 'em and leave 'em by an installment with too much back story for newbies to sink their teeth into."
Back from hell, a vampire queen assembles a motley crew to save the future. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE DAMAGE DONE by Hilary Davidson
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 2010

"Davidson's first mystery follows 18 nonfiction books. The story is zealously overplotted, but Lily's emotional center is true, and her career as a travel writer might make her a decent candidate for more temperate adventures."

BOOK REVIEW

THE FIGHTER by Craig Davidson
