I’ve been having a hard time with Molly Harper lately. After THE DANGERS OF DATING A REBOUND VAMPIRE didn’t live up to my expectations, I was really hoping for THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB to rekindle my love. Unfortunately, THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOMS CLUB fell completely flat for me, in both the romance and the plot aspects.
With high action, loveable characters (and some quite despicable ones), and an Austen-like setting, NEWT’S EMERALD is a fun ride that is perfect for younger readers, while still having enough to interest adult readers.
It’s a good thing that Truthful grew up with a gaggle of boisterous boy cousins; when her family’s heirloom emerald is stolen, dressing up as a boy to scour the streets of London is as easy as donning a glamour-enchanted mustache and imitating her cousins.
So I’m a bit biased, as I tend to love books with robots and artificial intelligence, but THE SCORPION RULES was spectacular. Full of intrigue, plot twists, drama and robots, it felt intense from beginning to end, keeping me on the edge of my seat as I breathlessly rushed to finish it.
From Paranormal Romance to Juvenile Fantasy, this week’s crop of covers offers a variety of art for all ages.
There are a lot of things that don’t quite work in THE DEVIL IS A WEREWOLF; the general setting, the gabillion characters (and this is just book two…), the massive breaks in the story, the gaps in the mythology, and the easy resolution at the end that I felt could have come months and months beforehand.
Still, there are things that worked for me. It’s true that Dax and Jules, two daredevil, strong characters, have instant chemistry, and their romance is truly wet and wild. Dax has a crippling “curse” that causes him physical pain whenever he touches anyone skin to skin… Anyone but Jules that is.
After spending some time in the woods in book two, I’m glad to be back with the gang from book one in the third book of the Pax Arcana series, FEARLESS. John is as snarky as ever, and it’s good to see him in fine form, as he is the main thing holding FEARLESS together. At times, the story feels a bit chaotic, with countless new characters being introduced and new creatures and powers abounding. But with the strong central character, and a good mystery, James manages to hold it together admirably.
Offering a new Harry Dresden story in graphic novel form, DOWN TOWN is a glimpse of a time in Molly’s apprenticeship that was a simpler, gentler moment in the Dresden household. This being Harry, however, there is still plenty of death, danger, and magical megalomaniacs.
