Book Review: Valley of the Dead by Kim Paffenroth

Review by Sarah “Fatally Yours” Jahier What if Dante’s Inferno was based on truth?

Well, that is the premise behind Kim Paffenroth’s new novel, Valley of the [...]

Book Review: Let Me Die A Woman by Alan Kelly

Review by Sarah “Fatally Yours” Jahier Blending ‘50s pulp novel sensibilities with modern potty-mouthed wit and characters pulled from a John Waters film with a cybergoth twist, Let Me Die A Woman is a kick ass debut from Irish author Alan Kelly! The novel opens with a rather innocuous scarecrow festival in a small town…or so it [...]

Book Review: How to Make Friends with Demons by Graham Joyce

Review by Sarah “Fatally Yours” Jahier William Heaney is a man well acquainted with demons.

Book Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Review by Scott Lefebvre It’s a book about zombies. Which is always a good sign because whatever flaws there might be in a book if it’s got zombies in it, then that’s like a “+1” modifier. It’s also about family and modern communication and living life after the inevitable outbreak. When I started reading this book I was getting [...]

Book Review: The Unit: A Novel by Terry DeHart

Review by Scott Lefebvre “In a post-nuclear world, family is everything.” I received this book, submitted for review through a friend. I received three books at the same time and decided to go for this one first, since I’m a fan of post-apocalyptic films and fiction. It’s a story about a family, headed by an ex-military father, trying to [...]

Book Review: And Falling, Fly by Skyler White

Written by Sarah “Fatally Yours” Jahier And Falling, Fly is a beautifully poetic work by author Skyler White.
