The Immortal Rules (Review)
reviews / April 13, 2015

The Immortal Rules is not the usual kind of vampire book. First of all, Allison – the narrator – doesn’t start out as a vampire, and actually rather hates them. She becomes a vampire, but is filled with self-loathing for much of the first half of the book. There isn’t the romanticism towards vampires in this book that there is in so many other series. They’re not seen as something to aspire to, or something seductive. They’re just plain old scary.

The Ruby Circle (Review)

I was really looking forward to reading this book and seeing how everything worked out in the end, but at the same time, I didn’t want it to end. Pretty much the way I felt at the end of the original Vampire Academy series as well. But I’m still holding out hope that perhaps there will be more stories in the future.

By A Thread (Review)

After the last few books, it was really nice for the Mab storyline to be over with. Even better, Estep wrote a change of scenery into this one, taking Gin and her friends out of Ashland to somewhere new, with new injustices to fight against. It was a really nice change of pace, to be honest.

Tales of the Otherworld (Review)
reviews / December 19, 2014

By the time I got to the end of the Otherworld series, I wanted there to be more. And thankfully, there are tons of other stories about the characters out there. First, I went ahead and read Men of the Otherworld and this collection, but they were just the jumping of point for me to go on and read all the various short stories I could find.
