Classic sword and sorcery, but by no means a simple story, BLOODFORGED explores the intricacies of politics, war, and marrying your ex-boyfriend’s brother. In this universe “victory” is more nuanced than defeating a single villain or weakness, forcing Alix and company to face heartbreakingly real obstacles as they fight for the alliances and resources that can turn the tide of a losing war. And upon this stage of high adventure and higher stakes, Lindsay’s characters sparkle with wit, emotion, and relationships that ring true.
If THE HISTORIAN adds hints of supernatural mythology to academic research, BLOOD CALL does the same for the romantic thriller.
This week Kristina predicts new and exciting tattoos for Mercy Thompson covers while James has had it with cityscapes (and once he starts pointing them out, you’ll realize they’re everywhere).
BREAKING OUT PART 1 was a fantastic short from the ENTANGLED anthology, quickly establishing charming characters and a compelling world
If THE WINTER LONG was a cataclysmic event completing so many of the series’ arcs, A RED-ROSE CHAIN is a triumphant rise from the ashes. Toby and her friends are thrown into unfamiliar waters with the highest of stakes, and the narrative sparkles along as they investigate, quip, and kick ass. A return of everything fantastic about this series, A RED-ROSE CHAIN proves that with good and the bad revelations in her rearview mirror, Toby’s adventures march triumphantly onward.
While Urban Fantasy often offers the emotion and character growth of Romance, the best surprises lie on the other side of the happily ever after. Through the looking glass of this familiar trope we see beloved characters moving to the burbs, dealing with bossy neighbors, and killing deadly creatures to be home in time for dinner.
