Review: Sealed in Sin (The Vessel Trilogy #2) by Juliette Cross

May 4, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

SEALED IN SIN is really a great urban fantasy. It’s got it all, action, romance and plot twists, with some creative mythology included. Though SEALED IN SIN plays off of a lot of typical urban fantasy tropes – the girl who doesn’t know she’s special all of a sudden developing powers, the dark and mysterious protector guy, etc – Cross really manages to take them and spin them her own way.

Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

Ever since it’s break onto the HBO TV scene in 2011, Game of Thrones has been a spectacular hit. But even before that the A Song of Ice and Fire book series has had an impressive empire of followers. The reason of the success of the series might seem obvious to the average viewer, especially after Peter Jackson’s adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series seemed to break new grounds for the fantasy genre. However, there is a much larger, much more varied history at work behind the style of storytelling than what meets the eye, and with season 5 having just started (which you can watch if you have HBO Go or DirecTV), now is a great time to take a closer look at what goes into these stories we all love so much.

Reader Request: What to read after the Rivers of London/Peter Grant series?

April 22, 2015 Reader Request 3

We recently received the following message in our inbox: Hello! I am new to the Urban Fantasy genre having been exposed to it via the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. I loved it! Can you recommend another series that is similar? I love the types of stories based in reality, but with the hint of fantasy. Full fledged fantasy can be a little much for me.
