Evelyn Reads The Taste of Her Blood

I found The Taste of Her Blood: A Lesbian Vampire Tale by K.C. Bloom to be precious little find. It reminded me of a classic fairy tale complete with foreboding forests, a hunter, brigands, and some sort of creature.

The similarities end there because the author turns this story on its head! I found the main characters to be believable and fleshed out. Their intimate interactions flow beautifully into the prose such that these scenes compliment the story.

I love the details that were specific to vampirism including the curse inflicted upon those who thirst for blood. I’ve never encountered that twist before and it provided a unique way to drive the story forward.

While a quick read, you’ll find yourself yearning for more. Fortunately, K.C. Bloom has written another story in the same vein!

Perhaps she’d like to borrow my Evelyn for some inspiration?

Evelyn Reads QWERTY

QWERTY by Barbara Avon. The tale a grief stricken writer who inherits a typewriter that makes prose come to life. Is this a recipe for disaster, or the key to his salvation?

QWERTY by Barabra Avon

QWERTY by Barbara Avon

In this novella, the author weaves beautiful prose to make both her characters and the story feel real. The depths of emotion, the doubt, and scenes are all written to draw you in and often do.

This is a quick read that is easily consumed in one setting. Well worth the price of admission for this ride!

Evelyn Reads The Taliesin Affair

I was fortunate to have The Taliesin Affair: Maliha Anderson’s First Case by Steve Turnbull to keep me company on my long flight back home! This author brings about an interesting take on Stream Punk, mainly that while technology in a post-Victorian era may have advanced by leaps, society has not.

In the shadows of the Great War, a clever young Indian girl named Maliha discovers a body in the library of a prestigious boarding school. How does a mixed-raced navigates through a world populated by royalty, the privileged, and wealthy? Is she up for the task? Read more to find out!

I loved this interchange of the fantastic mixed with the cold reality of the era. This book is highly recommended. While it stands alone, it does make for a great stepping stone for more works in the series!

Evelyn Reads Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair

Zero Gravity: Anna’s Affair by author T.J. Conway is out of this world! This is a story about a lovers in space, and in one case an orgasm aided by a rocket sized vibrator.

It is clear that the author took a lot of time and care to research the subject. For me, that did a lot of lend credibility to the story, which in turn made it a hotter read. While a quick and easy read, this story offers more than just sex scenes. If you were ever curious about having sex in low Earth orbit, then this book is for you!

Highly recommended!

Evelyn Reads Blood Drops

Blood Drops by author W.B. Welch is more than just a collection of horror stories. Each take something familiar and adds just enough distilled horror to leave an impression lingering on your mind.

This book is a quick read, and features chapters that are of varying lengths. I found that the one to two page stories had the most impact overall. Every chapter is just the right length to have an effect, be it by leaving me stunned or looking over my shoulder just in case. This author has really mastered the art of prose!

I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading new works from this author.
