A triumphant revival of the serial format, THE KRAKEN KING offers exotic locations, breathtaking sexual chemistry, and and a sweeping, political adventure that offers intrigue and danger on every page. Dickens would be proud, Meljean Brook has brought the serial into the modern day.

GOLEM IN MY GLOVEBOX is a wonderful addition to the Monster Haven series which has always been delightfully quirky and fun with some truly touching moments that make these characters seem all the more real. The story has a different feel to it as it takes place on a long road trip and because of that road trip to find the
This week we learned that skulls lose their lower jaws when muscles and tissue rot away (unless someone carefully stacks them on said jaw and puts them on a shelf, which happens *shifty eyes*). Gorgeous colors, lots of grit, and swords abound in these covers. Enjoy! If you’re a blogger interested in joining in on […]
I always enjoy books that make me think about the basic question of what it means to be human. EXPIRATION DAY is definitely one of those books. Set in a not-so-far future, where most humans can’t have children, we get all the classics: can robots be creative? Can they experience emotion? If they’re creative and emotional, are they not as human as homo sapiens? These are all fascinating questions to ponder, and rather than detract from the story, they add to it, giving a somewhat regular “coming of age” story depth and a completely different angle.

DANCING WITH DRAGONS, the second book in the DRACIM series, follows in the footsteps of it’s slightly spunkier predecessor – it’s got dragons, predictable action, and romance. All of these things are obvious. Having the two main characters be humans though really changed the dynamic from NEVER DEAL WITH DRAGONS, and left me a little disappointed.

DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT could have been so good- and it sounded so good, which is why I picked it up. Unfortunately, it felt like the author was trying to shove too many ideas into one book, and ultimately didn’t succeed at making any of them super compelling. Though well-written, it just didn’t offer many opportunities for the reader to really dig into the story, which made it less enjoyable than it could have.
A traditional set-up with a good helping of charm, THE FOUNDRY’S EDGE by Cam Baity and Benny Zelkowicz packages a lot of common YA fantasy tropes in an unconventional wrapper. Though the biggest ‘surprise’ of the novel is revealed in the first third of the book, it’s a dark twist with far-reaching consequences, and that edge turns the first Book of Ore from a predictable story to an adventure worth taking.
