BITCH PLANET is a thought-provoking and important series, but it can also be a difficult one to read. Kelly Sue DeConnick has the ability to turn a spotlight on a harsh truth and inspect it. BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE VOLUME 1 introduces us to different artists and writers, each with their own spin on DeConnick’s universe.
The Invisible Library series consistently provides an entertaining and enjoyable reading experience. I love Irene and Kai, and I love the concept of the Library. While THE LOST PLOT felt like a side quest to the main, overarching plot of the series (no super evil librarians in sight here, or questions answered from previous books), it was still a great deal of fun to read.
Jonah Heywood is a drunk, a liar, and he probably owes you money. Although THE LEDBERG RUNESTONE introduces us to a familiar male urban fantasy character, the humour and the plotting keeps the novel fresh. When Jonah’s debtors come calling,, he has to work with an untrustworthy client to find a lost runestone.
While Mina and Mikhail are not my favorite couple of the Vampire Blood series, THE EMERALD LILY is nonetheless a passionate tale of romance with two strong-willed and lovable characters to root for. As the war between the evil vampire queen and those opposed to her comes to a climax around them, you can’t help but want the two of them to be able to find peace and love with each other.

It can be hard to build book to book momentum this far into a series, but with CAST IN DECEPTION Michelle Sagara manages to do just that. Titanic forces are moving, and the lives of Kaylin, her friends, and perhaps the whole kingdom are on the cusp of change.
MAD HATTERS AND MARCH HARES is a short story anthology inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Edited by Ellen Datlow, the anthology twists Alice in Wonderland into stories about a commercialized Wonderland, a grieving mother, a cat turned human, and a fantastic dinner between Alice Hargreaves and Peter Llewellyn Davies.
I hate writing one bat reviews, especially on a book I wanted to like so much, but A SPOONFUL OF MAGIC fell completely flat for me.
With bold art and a a mystery that is slowly revealed, ELSEWHERE VOLUME 1, the story of what really happened to Amelia Earhart. Unfortunately it fails to set itself apart from the thousand of other stories which explore new worlds. ELSEWHERE doesn’t quite work for me.
