There's one character that drove me bananas and she was in the first chapter of the book so that pretty much started my bad mood with this book. Yes, she's a young girl who had bad things happen to her but it does not excuse her inconsiderate and very dangerous behavior with absolutely no remorse f...

When a curse zombifies much of Boston, the world is horrified. In this time of crisis, other supernatural beings (werewolves, vampires, witches, etc) agree to help humanity in exchange for a few rights. They still don't have equal rights, and they're segregated into areas (such as "Deadtown" in Bos...

There is a lot to like about this series and I mostly enjoyed the book but I just couldn't stand the self-absorbed main character.

Then her client is killed and Vicky finds herself facing an enemy from ...

I've heard a lot about this debut author and wanted to check it out. Deadtown was somewhere between ok and good in my rating system. It isn't a great book but I can see the potential for a great story and really good future stories. Nancy Holzner has a smooth flowing, easy to read style of writin...

It drove me *up a wall* that her apprentice almost got everyone killed with little or no consequences, enough to sour me on the entire book. I'll be back for more, however, if that zombie steps out of line again...Abigail disagreed with me, read her review at All Things Urban Fantasy.
