Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

September 5, 2017 Review 1

THE BRIGHTEST FELL is an entertaining mix of the comfort of an adventure between well established characters with the dissonance and uncertainty of new blood thrown into the mix. This deep into the series, October Daye’s group of irregulars are beloved and entertaining, it is the unexpected appearance of her biological family that throws a wrench into the mix.

Review: New Romancer (New Romancer #1-6), by Peter Milligan, Brett Parson

Review: New Romancer (New Romancer #1-6), by Peter Milligan, Brett Parson

September 1, 2017 Review 0

We’re supposed to feel for the heroine of NEW ROMANCER; she’s been fired from her job, works for a tiny matchmaking site that is going out of business, and she’s a giant fan of classical literature. Unfortunately for us, she was fired for stealing important assets and messing up experiments, she’s not serious about her current job, and her infatuation with dead writers keeps her from seeing the potential in people in front of her.

You know a book is good when you start slowing down your reading speed and putting the book down because you’re not ready to leave the world of the story. You’re not ready to leave behind the characters you’ve grown to care for, even if this could be their happily ever after. THE DRUID NEXT DOOR is that kind of story and I’m so glad that it lives up to the first book in the series, CUTIE AND THE BEAST.

Review: Graveyard Shift by Michael F. Haspil

A police procedural should investigate the main characters, just as the characters are investigating a crime. In GRAVEYARD SHIFT, there doesn’t seem to be much individuality between its investigators, when there should be worlds of difference.

Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

August 23, 2017 Review 1

First Watch is an awesome book! I’ve read a lot of steampunk police procedural, quite a few of them I’ve reviewed here. I’ve enjoyed all of them, but they’ve always been a little lacking. First Watch is exactly the book I’ve always hoped the others would be. Let me clarify, First Watch is fantasy not steampunk, but I guess it was the fantasy angle I’d been hoping for in all the others.
