    "I love the Mercy Thompson and she made me a fast fan of this series by Patricia Briggs. I love stories centered around strong females. Moon Called is a perfect introduction to the series as it gives some action, some intrigue and some romance!"

    "I wish there were a million other books like this one. I love seeing women portrayed in such a strong and brave light. If you are looking for an interesting book to inspire a girl (or anyone) in your life, this is the one."

    "Halfway to the Grave combines a unique urban setting with the intrigue and horror of the paranormal. This book felt really different: the characters speak in a way that seems familiar and comfortable, which balances out the fantasy really well. I definitely still got pretty scared at parts though! The romance rounds out the story in a very satisfying way."

    "Dragon Bound's Pia Giovanni combines a traditional element of stories with female heroes (the "wronged" woman) with a magical world of shape-shifting, fantastic beings. Pia is forced into a tough situation by someone near to her, and the book traces her journey through righting that wrong. Along the way, we're treated to another stock element of the craft, the revealing of Pia's hidden inner powers and strengths. Well, I'm not a natural creature of the fantasy genre: Even Tolkien has to work hard to get me. However, Thea Harrison's treatment of Pia's world and story hooked me. I think Pia is an exciting addition to the increasing list of gutsy women."

    "I have still yet to understand why they make a strong female lead but make her invincible to everything. I do not like books that show their lead as flawlesss, no one is flawless, and why the cover picture of her with the sexy stance, and most of her thigh showing?"

    "Magic Strikes is not really a romance book. It is more action adventure focused than anything else, so while it certainly has a strong female character, it is a bad fit for this category."
