There’s a few classic Urban Fantasy covers this week, enjoy!
I initially really liked the main characters in PHOENIX RISING, a short story in the Alpha Pack series. Unfortunately, I disliked almost everything else about the story: pacing, foreshadowing, the villain, the mythology, the stereotypical homophobia…
I didn’t know I needed a fabulous Egyptian-inspired zombie killing novel in my life, but now that I have devoured THE REBURIALISTS, I will be recommending it to everyone at the top of my lungs. It’s equal parts clever and exciting, with a dash of horror and a fun love story.
The world is complicated enough without having to cut the tendons of your dead relatives and get their mouths sewn shut in case a Re-Animus decides to take it for a ride after you bury it. You’re better off cremating it, if you can afford it. Where zombies rising is common place, the BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) takes care of putting the dead back where they belong, and Brynner Carson is their hero.
I loved getting back to Verity’s storyline in CHAOS CHOREOGRAPHY and especially loved that my silent wish was answered which was to have Dance or Die be in the actual story instead of being constantly referenced to. The dance competition reality show was my favorite part of the story and part of this is due to my love of dance competition reality shows.

FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.
A big welcome to Steve Bein who is here to telling us about Writing Moral Conflict and celebrating the release of the mass market version of Disciple of the Wind, Fated Blades #3 (published on March 1, 2016 by Roc). Writing Moral Conflict by Steve Bein On one level, Disciple of the Wind is a book about a cop kicking ass in the name of justice. She fights homegrown terrorists in 21st-century Tokyo with a sword that’s nearly a thousand years old, wrought with supernatural power. That’s level one. On a deeper level this is a book about moral principles, and especially about… Read more »
THE FAMILY TRADE isn’t Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, and it’s hard for me to really classify it other than by using the broader term speculative fiction. But I enjoyed it so much I wanted to write a review about it. THE FAMILY TRADE follows a reporter, Miriam Beckstein, who quickly finds herself caught up in another dimension when she discovers that she has the very rare ability to “world walk.” Court intrigue, assassinations, and hidden romance fill THE FAMILY TRADE.
