MISTAKES WERE MADE, episode 3 of Bookburners Season 2 unfolded completely differently than I expected. The idea of the team attending an academic conference dedicated to all things magical is amusing, to say the least. What they found there was a little creepy and definitely a bit surprising.
I think a lot of readers like to imagine a world in which they could own their own cafe/bookstore, or maybe I’m just weird thinking that would be cool. But that’s what made me pick up THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE, a story about someone who owns her own cafe/bookstore in a steampunk world sounded pretty awesome. Few books get me as interested in them as THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE did just by reading the synopsis, however, it wasn’t quite as good as I wanted it to be.
This book was almost entertaining, but between the blatant use of romance tropes and the saccharine quality of the plot with made my stomach turn, I was annoyed with it by the time I put it down. If this was the first paranormal romance book I’d ever read, I would have never picked up another.
Werewolves not necessary to this story, and it would have probably been an okay suspense romance without it – in fact, it probably would have been better for me. The key mythology issue was so badly introduced that I didn’t really understand any of the characters’ motivations for the first half of the book.
TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.

Andrea Phillips: I love it with a fierceness that other people reserve for things like chocolate or maybe their families. Thanks to the way we run a show, we all get a say in… Read more »
WICKED BURN is a suspenseful paranormal romance with lots of drama and a very strong hero and heroine. With a great couple at its core, it is an enjoyable book for those who are familiar with the series, though it had a few issues.
The Merchant Princes started out with so much potential. Charles Stross created an amazing universe, and an awesome female lead. The Merchant Princes series is clear proof that great world building does not mean great story telling.
