Release Day Review: Vision in Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop

Release Day Review: Vision in Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop

March 3, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

VISION IN SILVER was, while as enjoyable as always, a bit of a disappointment after MURDER OF CROWS. Much of VISION IN SILVER felt like build up to a larger issue that will be realized in the next book. While not exactly ending on a cliffhanger, VISION IN SILVER left me wanting more – more action, more time with the primary characters, more everything.

February 17, 2015 Guests 1

We have a special guest post for you today from a fellow blogger who wanted to share some upcoming books she’s looking forward to. So, welcome Emily from Plenty of Pages! If you, like me, live in the northeast US and are getting absolutely pummeled by snow this month, there are a lot of reasons to be dreaming about the future. Any future– I’m not picky– as long as it doesn’t resemble the Siberian tundra outside my window, I’ll be happy. But beyond the warm weather and excuse to drink frozen things with little umbrellas in them, there’s a lot… Read more »

Review: Forged in Fire (The Vessel Trilogy #1) by Juliette Cross

Review: Forged in Fire (The Vessel Trilogy #1) by Juliette Cross

February 2, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

FORGED IN FIRE sounded intriguing from the first time I heard of it, so I was delighted to be able to review it here for All Things Urban Fantasy. Unexpectedly, FORGED IN FIRE felt similar to other books I’ve read, with a girl coming into special powers that make her completely unique, and all the men subsequently want her. Luckily, the New Adult tone and the mythology manage to set the story apart from other similar stories.

5bat! Review: The Dragon Conspiracy (SPI Files #2) by Lisa Shearin

5bat! Review: The Dragon Conspiracy (SPI Files #2) by Lisa Shearin

January 30, 2015 Review 3 ★★★★★

I’m at a loss for words here, since I have no idea how to fully convey how much I loved THE DRAGON CONSPIRACY. This is a book I read in its entirety in one sitting, and though Shearin has long been on my auto-buy list, if she hadn’t been, this book would have made me add her. It was basically perfect for me, in every way – with sarcastic Makenna, her delicious partner Ian, constant action that starts in the first chapter, and a little unresolved sexual tension to keep everybody on their toes.

Release Day Review: Bound by Flames (Night Prince #3) by Jeaniene Frost

Release Day Review: Bound by Flames (Night Prince #3) by Jeaniene Frost

January 27, 2015 Review 2 ★★★

While I’m always eager to open up a new Jeaniene Frost, BOUND BY FLAMES just didn’t do it for me as much as previous installments of the Night Prince series or the Night Huntress series did. Part of this had to do with some of the content of the book, but part of it also was that this book felt very much like a middle of a series book. It dragged a little and though part of the conflict was resolved by the end of the book, some of it was left with a big giant cliff-hanger that didn’t feel necessary.

Review: There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake

Review: There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake

January 23, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

THERE WILL BE LIES isn’t the typical book you’d find here on All Things Urban Fantasy, but I felt it was one worth sharing. With this thriller, Nick Lake has written a book that is really difficult to review without spoilers, but I’ll do my best.
