Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs

shiftingshadowssmall
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Shifting Shadows is an anothology that includes every short story set in Mercy Thompson’s world from older collections, plus four brand new stories, two of which are actually novellas. For me, the new stories alone were worth the price of admission, but I also like having all of these stories in one very nice collection.

I enjoyed revisiting some of the older tales that I had forgotten about, and I like all of the new ones, but my favorite of all is “Silver,” a novella that goes hundreds of years back in time to tell the story of Bran and Samuel, and the witch who made them werewolves. It was sad and dark, but beautifully done, and I will look at each of those characters a bit differently in future books.

If you are a Patricia Briggs fan and already familiar with Mercy Thompson and friends, Shifting Shadows should be part of your library. Yeah, another cover I don’t like, but that’s an issue for some other time. I can overlook that in favor of the solid writing inside, and a chance to spend an afternoon with old friends, and new. Check it out. I don’t think you’ll be sorry.

Wednesday’s Author Interview – Mishka Jenkins

Stolen Bloodline by Mishka Jenkins

One of the best things about doing author interviews, is that I get a chance to introduce my followers to newly published writers, as well as those who have been plying their craft for a while. Today, I’d like to welcome Mishka Jenkins to Bookin’ It. Mishka is a new writer, the author of three books, released at one time, and who is working on a fourth. Quite an accomplishment for anyone, and especially for someone just getting their career underway. I’m so happy to have her with us. 

BI: Mishka, Tell us a bit about how you became a writer. When did you decide that’s what you wanted to be, and what steps did you take to prepare for a writing career? 

Mishka: Creating stories is something I’ve always enjoyed doing, though when I was younger, I tried to do it more through art and comics. I started writing before I was in my teens, and just haven’t stopped! Last year I decided I wanted to pursue writing as a serious career after discovering that self-publishing is now a viable option open to writers, and in December I started writing and it took off from there. Now I am fully focused on making a career in writing work for me.  Read more…

Vampire Smut

shocked grandmaI have a friend who calls all Paranormal Romance “Vampire Smut,” whether it has blood suckers in it or not. If it has some element of the supernatural and more than a casual mention of sex, to her, it’s Vampire Smut. Ever read any? You know the books I mean. The covers usually feature some hot, sexy, bare-chested guy  Read more…

My Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

This series consistently receives such high ratings that it made me question my own sanity when I started reading it, and just felt NOTHING for it.  I’m giving it a rating of 3 stars because it is written and edited well, in a competent style.  I have  no problems with Karen Marie Moning’s actual writing style.  But I have lots of problems with Read more…
