Half-Navajo Janet Begay comes to Magellan to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the police chief’s daughter. But the people of Magellan sense that Janet is not what she seems, and they’re right. Janet possesses extraordinary power which is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she’s caught in the storm’s evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can’t seem to touch with her powers. He can weild fire and not get burned, and Janet’s never sure where he goes when they’re not together.

Together they investigate mysterious disappearances, which Janet fears are tied to her mother’s people, the mythical gods from below the earth. They …

Bookish Rants or Raves: It’s Raining Kick-Ass Men!?!?

I read a post on Wicked Little Pixie’s blog by the Queen B (you can check out the post  HERE) where she talks about Urban Fantasy, more specifically about the scarce number of Male protagonists in UF. She also mentions that the word on the grapevine is that, and I quote: “writers writing male leads in UF are not being picked up by publishers. Even if the stories are good. What I’m hearing is that they don’t really want men, and they especially don’t want the male protagonist to be bisexual or gay.”

I couldn’t help but take advantage of my little bi-weekly feature and put on my two cents in this whole deal.

I have to admit that I am very ambivalent in this whole thing. On one side I am all for the Kick-Ass men of Urban Fantasy, bring on Dresden, Felix Castor, Simon Canderous and any …

Bookish Rants or Raves: Drawing The Line! What’s Ur Limit?

I was reading a post about Train Wreck Books at Mama Kitty Reviews blog and I started thinking about my limits when it comes to subject matters in the books I choose to read or that are offered to me for review.

I have to admit that I pretty flexible, I usually am open for mostly anything. I love reading M/M Romance, have read a lot of Paranormal Erotica and have no qualms about delving into a book with BDSM elements.

That being said, there are some subjects out there where I simply feel the need to draw the line. I haven’t read any books with them, but I have read about them in blogs and on twitter.

I remember reading on twitter and subsequently on a blog about a book where the woman has sex with a tree… *a moment of silence, please* …

Bookish Rants or Raves: Book Snobs!

I have to confess that even though I’ve read my share of Brazilian Literary Classics when I was a kid and that I have also read some English and American Literary classics laster on when I was in college, I have always preferred spending my time with my Agatha Christie collection.

Nowadays, I don’t hide my YA, UF and PNR obsession and I am far from being embarrassed by it, but that doesn’t stop people from turning their noses when i mention the types of book I read.

To be quite honest, I don’t give a damn and it’s none of their business which kind of book I have a predilection for. However, I find ridiculous this sort of snobbish behavior.

I was wondering if any of you guys out there have ever been in a situation where you suffered prejudice for the type of book you like …
