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!
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!
MISTAKES WERE MADE, episode 3 of Bookburners Season 2 unfolded completely differently than I expected. The idea of the team attending an academic conference dedicated to all things magical is amusing, to say the least. What they found there was a little creepy and definitely a bit surprising.
I think a lot of readers like to imagine a world in which they could own their own cafe/bookstore, or maybe I’m just weird thinking that would be cool. But that’s what made me pick up THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE, a story about someone who owns her own cafe/bookstore in a steampunk world sounded pretty awesome. Few books get me as interested in them as THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE did just by reading the synopsis, however, it wasn’t quite as good as I wanted it to be.
TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.
WICKED BURN is a suspenseful paranormal romance with lots of drama and a very strong hero and heroine. With a great couple at its core, it is an enjoyable book for those who are familiar with the series, though it had a few issues.
The Merchant Princes started out with so much potential. Charles Stross created an amazing universe, and an awesome female lead. The Merchant Princes series is clear proof that great world building does not mean great story telling.
Although not as enjoyable as CREEPY TOWN, WEBS did an excellent job of advancing the plot of team two’s explorations of magic, and offered a brief glimpse into the history of the Bookburners (or Societas Librorum Occultorum, as I suppose it’s called).
With it’s strong hero and sweet heroine, SHADOW RIDER checks off many of the boxes that I love in a romance, plus, it takes place in Chicago! Though not the focus, Feehan has created an interesting mythology, and given the reader side characters’ stories to look forward to as well!
**Warning! Spoilers for the previous books ahead!**
THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE is another exciting installment in the Charley Davidson series. Though the story and Charley’s history are getting increasingly complex, I still enjoyed the story, drama and action that come along with Charley. This is not a series I’d recommend getting into in the middle, and THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE only proves my point, with pieces of the plot relying on information from previous books to understand all of the nuances of Charley’s story.
