CITY OF WOLVES is an enjoyable novella. I loved the main character, the sense of humor, and the world building, but I felt there were some aspects that were unnecessary and distracting, something which is all the more obvious in a novella length piece, where every word counts.

THE MASKED CITY is an excellent follow-up to THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY, if a bit different. Whereas I would have described THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY as a mystery, THE MASKED CITY skips the mystery part and goes straight into spy thriller-esque action.

I will admit it: I started reading DEJA WHO solely because it is set in Chicago. But I continued reading it for the originality, the wit, and the mystery. First in a new series, DEJA WHO is a huge departure for Davidson after the 15 book Undead series. Focusing on the prickly Leah, an Insighter, somebody who can see people’s past lives, the world is creative and original, the romance is sweet, and the mystery is nothing too scary.

The Fly By Night series is quickly becoming one series I know I don’t want to miss. Though categorized as paranormal romance, FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM reads more like an urban fantasy with a romantic subplot, with the mystery taking center stage. The characters are really what shine, making FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM a super enjoyable read.
Every small glimpse each episode of Bookburners gives us into the past of the various characters is like a little treat for me, and in this episode, after getting a bit of Liam’s past in the previous episode, focused on Asanti, who easily is my favorite character.
A fun mixing of magic and technology, GHOSTS is one of the more interesting episodes of this season of Bookburners yet.
Anybody who has read this blog for any amount of time knows how much I am in love with fairy tale retellings. And my favorite are always Beauty and the Beast. So when BEAUTY AND THE CLOCKWORK BEAST showed up on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it! While I had some issues with the beginning of BEAUTY AND THE CLOCKWORK BEAST, it did manage to improve, and by the end of the book I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
An improvement over the THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB, WHERE THE WILD THINGS BITE starts to bring the Half-Moon Hollow series back to where I want it to be – funny, lighthearted and a nice little escape read.
