Fantasy Urban

My name is Gin, and I kill people.

They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

Now that a ruthless Air elemental has double-crossed me and killed my handler, I'm out for revenge. And I'll exterminate anyone who gets in my way -- good or bad. I may look hot, but I'm still one of the bad guys. Which is why I'm in trouble, since irresistibly rugged Detective Donovan Caine has agreed to help me. The last thing this coldhearted killer needs when I'm battling a magic more powerful than my own is a sexy distraction...especially when Donovan wants me dead just as much as the enemy.

Re: Venom

I'm liking the new series Lost Girl so far.
And I love the Chronicles of Narnia. The
movies have been pretty impressive as
well. Can't wait for "Voyage of the Dawn
Treader!"
(Zita Hildebrandt 9:38am September 23, 2010)

I keep meaning to watch the Narnia movies. I really loved the first few books in the series.
(
Jennifer Estep 10:24am September 23, 2010)

I really like Kelly Meding's Eve Stone series.
I also liked the Beauty and the Beast late '80s TV show
and Zoe Archer's Blades of the Rose series which kind of like Werehouse 13.
(
Ruth Thompson 11:12am September 23, 2010)

Ruth -- I've heard a lot of good things about the Blades of the Rose series. I may have to add that one to my TBR pile.
(
Jennifer Estep 11:17am September 23, 2010)

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is by far the
best thing Disney ever did, or for that
matter just about anyone else. I have
the Broadway soundtrack and play it
constantly. The richness of the voices
makes it much better than the one
from the movie.
My other favorite movies are LAST OF
THE MOHICANS, INDIANA JONES AND
THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and
INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST
CRUSADE. All three have driving non-
stop action and good, strong
characters with intense relationships.
The play between Indy and his Dad is
great.
On TV, I like BONES and the two NCIC
shows.
Zoe Archer's new series is intriguing.
It must be the Indiana Jones thing on
the cover of WARRIOR.
I really haven't read much in the
paranormal and urban fantasy fields.
Most TV shows in that vein haven't
appealed. I think I spook too easily.

Good luck with the release of VENOM.
(
Patricia Barraclough 12:09pm September 23, 2010)

Patricia -- I agree. I think it's the best of all the Disney films. I love the Indiana Jones movies too, as well as NCIS. Lots of good stuff on TV these days!
(
Jennifer Estep 1:25pm September 23, 2010)

I love Indiana Jones, The Princess Bride, Warehouse 13, Being Human, and of course, Chuck. Yeah, the other question I have about Chuck is, how has Morgan not gotten himself killed yet?
I'm looking forward to The Blades of the Rose series too. I've heard so much about it - high adventure romance, in exotic locales with great characters, magic and steampunk.
(
Barbara Elness 1:39pm September 23, 2010)

Barbara -- No kidding about Morgan. I also wonder how Jeff and Lester have not gotten themselves killed either ... especially by Big Mike!
(
Jennifer Estep 1:59pm September 23, 2010)

I agree with the others, Zoe Archer's series looks like it will be a wonderful and exciting series.
Loved Wonder Woman and Batman when I was a kid... :)
(
Colleen Conklin 2:13pm September 23, 2010)

Colleen -- Me too. I always wanted to be Wonder Woman ... ;-)
(
Jennifer Estep 2:28pm September 23, 2010)

I'll try to keep this as short as possible - Graphic Novels: Scott Pilgrim and Invincible Movies: The Fifth Element and The Princess Bride TV: Chuck and Human Target Books: Bigtime series and The Incarnations of Immortality series
(
David Faulkner 4:15pm September 23, 2010)

"The Princess Bride" is the best. And I've liked the Disney movies ever since "The Little Mermaid" when they started putting Broadway show style songs in them.

Although I loved "The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire", I've decided to put off reading "Mockingjay" for a while - read a few reviews which made me decide on that course of action. I won't spoil anything though.
(
S Tieh 6:23pm September 23, 2010)

I agree about Beauty & the Beast and the 'classic' Batman series. Robin had some of the funniest one-liners EVER.
(
Mary Preston 6:32pm September 23, 2010)

I enjoyed the Narnia series and the Secret of Nimh. As for books, I'm drawing a blank at the moment, because I'm currently reading out of that particular genre. I do like to read books that fit my mood at that particular moment, as well as my movies. Where I live, the tv reception is poor, so I don't get to watch much, if any tv. It doesn't bother me as much as it used to.
(
Peggy Roberson 9:32am September 24, 2010)

David -- Thanks for the shoutout about the Bigtime series. I appreciate that.

S Tieh -- I haven't read Catching Fire yet, but I've heard the rumblings about Mickingjay too ...

Mary -- Indeed. I still chuckle every time I catch one of the reruns. The show was just cheesy fun.

Peggy -- Me too. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for fantasy, sometimes for YA, and sometimes, for a good, old-fashioned western romance.
(
Jennifer Estep 10:24am September 24, 2010)

Tame ones seem like they're made for kids like most of Disney's movies. The various Madeleine L'Engle stories are favorites because my kids read them and also I had an entire Fifth grade giving me a summary of the books they read.
