We find out more about the fae, we meet some witches and other shifters, and Hedi and Trowbridge have to deal with some serious were politics. An action packed third installment in the series, THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES never seems to let up, constantly hitting the reader with revelations, fights or dramatic decisions. You definitely don’t have to worry about being bored with this one.

Want to win a copy? Enter via the widget below. Interview with Leigh Evans by Leigh Evans Having just finished THE PROBLEM WITH PROMISES, I’m curious about where the Mystwalker series is going. Do you have the whole series plotted out ahead of time, or do you just figure it out as you go along? Have things changed or gone in a different direction than you planned or anticipated from when… Read more »
The first novel in Victoria Scott’s new YA series is CATCHING FIRE, THE GOLDEN COMPASS, and The Amazing Race all rolled into one. But imagine if Katniss couldn’t hunt, or Lyra couldn’t communicate with Pantalaimon. Now imagine that they were still determined to do whatever it took to save those they loved and you’ll understand Tella Holloway’s dilemma in FIRE & FLOOD.
Every time I pick up a Hunter Kiss novel I fall in love with the world building and the amazing writing style that has marked this series has one of my favorites. LABYRINTH OF STARS more than met my expectations of a Hunter Kiss story (I’d recommend reading at least IRON HUNT before digging into this series with this book).
While straying toward the science fiction spectrum of speculative fiction, HAMMER OF ANGELS nonetheless is likely to appeal to urban fantasy fans looking to shake up their reading habits. After all, the Shadowstorm series features a ass-kicking heroine with superhuman powers plus a cast of witty supporting characters set in a fictional world mirrored after our own – pretty much like every UF novel, it just so happens this one doesn’t have any magic and takes place in an alternate history where Germany won World War II.
Water colors and jewel tones, there are some gorgeous cover styles this week. Of course, there are also the usual Photoshop mis-steps. My favorite would be title shadowing that gives the impression that a cover model’s man-boobs are protuberant enough to physically blot out the light.

It’s never an easy thing to sit down and review the last book in a series. It’s even harder when it’s a series like Mythos Academy, when the previous five books have all been leading up to this moment…and you don’t want to spoil anyone.
A big welcome to Kerry Schafer who is here to telling us about Love in a Time of Dragons and celebrating the release of WAKEWORLD, Books of the Between, #2 (published on January 28, 2014 by Ace Books). Want to win a copy? Enter via the widget below. Love in a Time of Dragons by Kerry Schafer If the protagonist of WAKEWOLRD, Vivian, had time to update her relationship status on Facebook, she’d definitely have to put “It’s complicated.” Not that she has a lot of time for a relationship right now, what with an evil dragon queen running amok with an agenda of… Read more »
I remember thinking at the end of Shattered Souls that the traditional end of a first-in-a-series book only really left one outstanding element – the bad guy – and hoping desperately that I wouldn’t be headed into a manufactured hostile environment for the established couple to drag the series on. I’m very pleased that this didn’t happen.
