Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon
I'm a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's -- I love the nonfiction books she's published for writers, and I fell in love with 'Fantasy Lover' and 'Night Pleasures'. While 'Night Embrace' was quite possibly the weakest book she's ever written, it still manages to carry through with aplomb and kept me entertaining.
'Night Embrace' is all about Talon of the Morrigantes, a doomed Celt and familiar to those that read 'Night Pleasures'. I should say that it's the story of both Talon AND his ladylove Sunshine, but honestly Sunshine is more of a supporting role in this book rather than a main character. She's weak, fruity, and somewhat silly and I found her hard to like in the beginning. But that's… Read more
Fallen
I'm sure we've all fallen (no pun intended) in love with the 'Bring Me To Life' single that's playing on the radio. I did, and immediately rushed out to buy this album, not expecting any of the tracks to even sound remotely like it (the fate of many records nowdays).
Imagine my surprise when I found such a lovely gem! Evanescence has burst out of the woodworks, and I hope they're here to stay.

Then sign me up! I bought this album on a whim, as I was curious about all the buzz Jewel had been creating with her new 'look' and sound, and I didn't hate the first single, "Intuition". I'm very glad I bought this record -- it's an intriguing mix of pop, rock, and old fashioned Jewel.
Now mind you, the folkies are going to hate this album, plain as day. I don't think Jewel wrote it for them, though. This is a new side of Jewel, a light, snazzy, and altogether catchy side. It honestly sounds like a mix of Madonna's Ray of Light, Sheryl Crow, No Doubt's Rock Steady Album, and oddly enough, various swede-pop groups. Not to say that I'm a huge fan of any of these particular… Read more
