OF FIRE AND STARS had me hooked from the prologue, when Deena picks up a hot ember with her bare hands, much to the horror of her mother and sister – not because she’s burnt herself, but because she hasn’t. Deena has an affinity for fire magic, and although it’s easy to overlook in her home country, she’s been betrothed to the prince of a neighbouring kingdom where magic users are persecuted, exiled and killed.

While the best of Urban Fantasy can balance character growth and enthralling world building, sometimes a book puts all its eggs in one basket. TELL THE WIND AND FIRE has a world, and though the politics and geography can be a bit odd, the magic is well developed. None of this matters a whit, however, when compared to how much I loved Lucie.

Release Day Review: Dark Protector (Moon Shifter, #6) by Katie Reus

Release Day Review: Dark Protector (Moon Shifter, #6) by Katie Reus

November 15, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

DARK PROTECTOR does a fabulous job of catching up the Moon Shifter series, while introducing a fresh conflict and interesting characters outside the ranch where most of the characters live. Vampires are missing during a particularly sensitive time in vampire/werewolf relations, and a war between two clans would be bad news for all supernatural creatures. It’s in the best interest of all parties involved to find the missing vamps, which is why Natalia and Aldrick end up working together.

Review: The Mountain of Kept Memory by Rachel Neumeier

I was so excited to read THE MOUNTAIN OF KEPT MEMORY that I barely got past the comparison to Robin McKinley in the description. And while I loved it, I didn’t quite love it, if you know what I mean. I had a few complaints, but overall, this is a beautiful standalone fantasy with intrigue, action and a little bit of sweet romance.
