Sin & Lightning Book Review:

One thing has become incredibly clear to Alexis and Kieran, if they hope to last in the arena of Demigods, they'll need a more robust defense team. They must take two incredibly dangerous journeys, seeking the prized talents other Demigods would kill for. Except, there is a reason other Demigods don't have these magical workers--they are as ruthless as they are dangerous, and the last thing they want is to be on a Demigod's team. If that isn't enough, Alexis has received an invitation from Demigod Lydia, the only Hades Demigod who hasn't openly declared war. She's talking like they could be allies, but those of Hades cannot be trusted. A trap is just as likely as a handshake. Still, it's a chance they must take. Any one of these trips could be their last, but to back down would be the most dangerous of all.

The Psychosocial Implications of Disney Movies Book Review:

In this volume of 15 articles, contributors from a wide range of disciplines present their analyses of Disney movies and Disney music, which are mainstays of popular culture. The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney’s films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered. Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in the volume. On the other hand, other authors argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking. The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies. The authors of the 15 articles encourage readers to engage with the material, showcasing a variety of views about the good, the bad, and the best way forward.

Aesthetic Theory Book Review:

Perhaps the most important aesthetics of the twentieth century appears here newly translated, in English that is for the first time faithful to the intricately demanding language of the original German. The culmination of a lifetime of aesthetic investigation, Aesthetic Theory is Adorno’s major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when “it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying.” In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno’s formulation “art is the sedimented history of human misery.” Robert Hullot-Kentor’s translation painstakingly, yet fluently, reproduces the nuances and particularities of the original. Long awaited and significant, Aesthetic Theory is the clarifying lens through which the whole of Adorno’s work is best viewed, providing a framework within which his other major writings cohere.

Speak of the Demon Book Review:

I hunt demons. I don't work for them. And I promised my mom one thing before she was murdered: Under no circumstances, would I ever go near the high demons. But I'll break that promise over and over again if it helps me avenge her death. When my only lead turns to ash in the middle of demon territory, I'm suddenly a dead witch walking. Violence in Samael's club is an automatic death sentence... unless he can use you. And it turns out that the most powerful demon in the country has a use for little ol' me. Demons are being slaughtered. His demons. And as a bounty hunter, it's up to me to find out who would dare hurt his people. I've got two weeks to find the killer, and if I fail, I'm bonded to Samael. Forever. Samael's certain that I'll be his, but I'm not the kinda girl who risks her freedom for a demon. I'm the kinda girl who won't let anyone get in the way of her vengeance-- not even the Machiavellian control freak who thinks he can run my life. The problem? I've pissed the wrong people off. Now I'm the one being hunted, and someone's coming for me with everything they have. But I'm never more dangerous than when my back is up against the wall. And I'm ready to come out swinging. ♥ If you like K.F Breene, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Laurell K. Hamilton, Jennifer Estep, Shannon Mayer, Kim Harrison, and Dannika Dark, you'll love this series.

Into the Darkness (Darkness, 1) Book Review:

I'd always been different. I saw objects in the night where others saw emptiness. Large, human shaped shadows, fierce yet beautiful, melting into the darkness. I collected secrets like other women collected bells; afraid to fully trust lest my oddities be exposed. Until I saw him. He'd been gliding down the street, unshakable confidence in every step. It wasn't just that he was breathtakingly handsome with perfect features. Something about him drew me. Sucked my focus to him and then tugged at my body. As his eyes met mine, I was entrapped. No one had noticed him. He'd been right there, just beyond the light, but only I had perceived. I had to know if he was real. Or maybe I really was crazy. And even when my secret box was blasted wide open, dangers hurled at me like throwing knives, I couldn't stop until I unraveled his true identity. I just had to know.
