5!bat Review: Of Metal and Wishes (Of Metal and Wishes #1) by Sarah Fine

August 8, 2014 Review 4

OF METAL AND WISHES hits that perfect blend of interesting world building, real characters, and romantic danger. Reminiscent of The Phantom of the Opera and THE HUNGER GAMES, these familiar components click together to create an altogether different dynamic. I couldn’t get this story out of my head until the very last page, and now I daydream about what comes next.

Review: The Kraken King Parts 3 & 4 (The Iron Seas #4.3 – 4.4) by Meljean Brook

Review: The Kraken King Parts 3 & 4 (The Iron Seas #4.3 – 4.4) by Meljean Brook

May 9, 2014 Review 0

With these two new additions to the THE KRAKEN KING serial adventure, Zenobia and Ariq are established, compelling, and off on their adventure. Moving from the comfort of Ariq’s encampment to the wider world, we get to see both Ariq’s political savvy and the price of Zenobia’s fame in action. Zenobia and Ariq have an undeniable chemistry, but loyalties to respective loved ones mean their keeping all of that heat under wraps for much of this journey… but not all.

Review: The Clockwork Wolf (Disenchanted & Co. #2) by Lynn Viehl

THE CLOCKWORK WOLF is an excellent example of a second book in a series that surpasses the first. Maybe I’m biased because I read DISENCHANTED & CO in two parts, but THE CLOCKWORK WOLF is a spectacular dive into Kit’s world of Toriana, complete with fascinating magic, nefarious villains, and multiple love interests.

Review: Tempered  (The St. Croix Chronicles #4) by Karina Cooper

Where the previous books in the St. Croix Chronicles were fast paced with danger and dangerous people lurking around every corner, TEMPERED deals with more internal battles and emotional trauma. Cherry has gone through so much externally dealing with the Veil and Society it felt fitting to have a story spend some time dealing with the internal effects of what happened to Cherry.

Review: Hatshepsut’s Collar (Artifact Hunters #2) by A. W. Exley

Review: Hatshepsut’s Collar (Artifact Hunters #2) by A. W. Exley

December 13, 2013 Review 0

In HATSHEPSUT’S COLLAR by A.W. Exley, sequel to NEFERTITI’S HEART, a traitor to the crown forces Cara Devon and Nathaniel Lyons to St. Petersburg in order to clear the Lyons name, and along the way they encounter airships, pirates, Russian prostitutes, and even dragons. In addition to supernatural adventure, the book wants to be erotic romance, but in this case the two genres don’t blend together. The latter isn’t my scene, so I found the second half of the story, where the international espionage intrigue comes to the front, a lot more entertaining.
