From the moment that we were introduced to Verden in THE OUTCAST PRINCE, I knew he was a character I wanted to see more of. And in LORD OF THE HUNT, the second book in the Court of Annwyn series, Verden doesn’t disappoint. Between having tall, dark and handsome down to a science, and being one of the most powerful people in the court, he was a hero I was drooling over from page one.
Jack the Ripper has become a familiar boogeyman across genre fiction, with explanations for the unsolved crimes ranging from psychopaths, to aliens, to dinosaurs, to demons, but in Sarah Pinborough’s MAYHEM, she applies the supernatural influence to a second killer operating in London, one whose crimes are overshadowed by the Ripper in number, but whose sins might be worse. This book is a lot like an old-fashioned roller-coaster, with a long, slow climb ratcheting up the tension before the mystery actually takes over and sends the reader on a ride.
IRON & VELVET was a fun urban fantasy, with more than a little romance thrown in, tied up in a big noir-esque mystery bow. While not perfect, there was plenty to like about the first book in the Kate Kane, Private Investigator series. Set in a richly conceived London with four different vampire princes, and a werewolf pack ready to go at everybody’s throats, not to mention the demons and witches, there were twists and turns around every corner- and I had a great time watching Kate take it all on.
Sometimes a good cover can completely reinvigorate my interest in a series. For example, the gorgeous, sexy, loveliness that is Vicki Pettersson’s latest Celestial Blues installment. Yum!

As an unabashed Raine Benares fangirl, I was delighted when I saw Lisa Shearin was coming out with an Urban Fantasy series, SPI Files. I was also secretly terrified that my expectations were completely unrealistic and I was going to be awfully disappointed. Luckily, THE GRENDEL AFFAIR was a delightful entree into a new world, with an engaging heroine, a mysterious partner, hints of romance, and great action scenes.
Between the constant action, romantic entanglements, and complex death threats CURSED BY DESTINY doesn’t give poor Celia a break after the events of A CURSED EMBRACE. I love how strong Celia is in spite of all the horrible issues she has and yet is able to still be the loving and protective big sister to her family.
