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.

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.

OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS is a wonderfully smart, action-filled journey of a novel. Though I had some issues with the book, I still enjoyed the creative setting, the various side characters, and the fun storyline.
The book Kitty Norville fans (or maybe just me) have been waiting for, LOW MIDNIGHT tells a story from Cormac’s point of view. If you’re expecting a Kitty story, you’ll be disappointed. Kitty is still present, but this is basically Cormac taking the reins, and having his own adventure.
A creative take on a fairy tale retelling, PRINCESS OF THORNS follows the daughter of Sleeping Beauty, Aurora, as she treks through the kingdom to rescue her brother. With elements of other fairy tales brought in (Niklaas’ curse comes to mind), PRINCESS OF THORNS is a wonderful continuation of a beloved fairy tale. Plus, the entire first half of the book has Aurora dressed up as and acting as a boy – a trope I can’t resist – and in this case, it was done well.
The Magic Born series has been, so far, a very well done, consistently written series, and I was hoping for similar in FIREWALL. After Lizzie and Vadim, I wasn’t sure if any couple could be better, or if there would be as much delving into the world. Luckily, FIREWALL delivered everything I hoped for.
