PERFECT GRAVITY picks up pretty much right after the events of its prequel WANTED AND WIRED. Characters from that book play significant roles in this one but its not really a necessity to have read WANTED AND WIRED to understand what is going on here.

As some of you may know, I’ve got a thing for Serial Box. We’ve had them as a guest here on the blog, and we’ve reviewed some of their urban fantasy serial, BOOKBURNERS. So I’m always excited when they have new content, and some free content at that, and I love to share it with you! Here’s what they’re up to over there in recent weeks. Season three of TREMONTAINE started in October! (Honestly, because the concept is so fresh and new, I have a had time believing Serial Box has been around long enough to have third season of anything,… Read more »
I finished CREATURES OF WILL AND TEMPER in one day. I must confess I have a particular weakness for Victorian settings, courting, and excessive blushing. Combine that with fencing, demons, and queer characters and you have my very devoted attention. Finishing this novel had me desperately searching for more of Molly Tanzer’s work.
Motherhood is complex. Your body changes, your identity changes. THE END WE START FROM takes these overwhelming changes and throws in an apocalyptic event for good measure. The story starts as the unnamed narrator, with her husband and friends, prepares for a water birth. In the first few pages the prose is purple, drenched in metaphor rather than conveying the narrator’s frame of mind. It’s not until the narrator gives birth and goes to her in-laws that the story really starts.
While I am not super great at keeping up with what’s “in” in science fiction books, Jim C. Hines is always on my radar for some fun, creative science fiction storytelling when I do decided to delve into this genre.
DEJA NEW follows DEJA WHO with the same amount of humor, sarcasm, and interesting storytelling. Between the characters’ parenthetical inner monologues, flashbacks, and footnotes, DEJA NEW is a creatively told romance with a heavy dose of mystery.
In ROSEMARKED, the rose plague affects every part of the novel, from setting to characters. There are frank descriptions of everything, from infections to the remote, and desperate, lives of the infected. There is no magical cure and no kindness for those who are rosemarked.
I’ve been interested in how this series ends since the first volume of DEMON, but the fourth and final volume didn’t really live up to the potential I felt it had. Gory and violent, the story seems to devolve into a question of what can kill the most people the fastest.
HARD BREAKER is a fun, action-filled book that works shockingly well as a standalone book especially considering it is the last book in a series. The flashback introduction helps set the world of Guardians/gargoyles and magic in just a few pages getting you up to speed on the who, why, and what of the overall story arc.
