Melissa F. Olson has become one of my insta-buy authors. I haven’t read anything of hers I haven’t liked, and NIGHTSHADES is no exception to that. NIGHTSHADES is a gritty police procedural in an awesome urban fantasy world.
Classic urban fantasy badasses and an even more classic mis-use of Photoshop.

With a violent killer on the loose who targets young shifter girls, Lindi Parker has to accept help from all sides, even if that means sharing her deepest secret with the very shifters who are tasked with killing her kind. Lindi is a truly different heroine, one who battles her cold, scaly side with the human side her adoptive parents have taught her to emulate; it’s a daily battle between nature and nurture, and it’s a battle she can’t afford to lose even for a second.
Were-snakes are a rare breed in shapeshifter fiction, and UNDER HER SKIN takes advantage of that to make their powers truly unique, even within the world of the book. Were-snakes, or lamia, are so feared because they are incredibly powerful, able to shift in ways no other type of shifter can.
As a life long lover of science fiction and fantasy I’ve always searched for a great story that could combine the two genres. I’ve read/attempted to read many, many books that had magic in space, but none of them have been worth mentioning until I stumbled across SALVAGE TROUBLE on Audible a couple of weeks ago, and since then the Black Ocean series has been the only thing I’ve listened to as I quickly devoured the seven books that are up on Audible right now.
As we start IMPRUDENCE, the second book in The Custard Protocol, we find Prudence has reached her majority and is now a full grown “ish” adult ready to taste some independence. Unfortunately she now has no outside protection against people who want to kill her and as a result of her actions in the previous book she’s on the bad side of the Queen.
The best part of MYTHIC, VOLUME 1 was the prologue; the rest of the book didn’t quite keep up with the action and tone. Still, it had some bright moments where it twisted mythology and religion into new and surprising shapes.
In a world where scientists can refuse to die (and turn into ghosts because they don’t believe in anything enough to move on) and demons can possess peaceful rock creatures, it’s a good thing Mythic is there there to police things.
IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY is without a doubt light, quirky, and entertaining urban fantasy. A quick read, IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY has a heroine more comfortable surrounded by books than doing magic, and a hero (anti-hero?) who drives a muscle car. It is not your typical urban fantasy, and that’s one of the things I loved about it!
As if I wasn’t anticipating the next Guild Hunters book enough, the cover reveal is thoroughly badass.
Action-packed and fun, HEROINE COMPLEX is the superheroine story that I’ve been waiting for. Full of fun and action, HEROINE COMPLEX has it all – demon fighting, a dramatic superhero, and a dab of romance to top it off!
