THE UNYIELDING is a fun romp through both the Norse underworld and the modern world, with a good dose of mischief and sexy romance. The characters are fun, the monsters are properly horrific and the stakes are high enough to matter. Although Ragnarok is no laughing matter, THE UNYIELDING makes it fun.

It’s rare for fantasy books to have a lived-in setting. Instead of existing just to explain backstory to the protagonist, DREAM EATER’s side characters don’t care if Koi Pierce is confused and uncomfortable. DREAM EATER also doesn’t waste time trying to make you like Koi Pierce. You like her or you don’t.

Review: Magic For Nothing (InCryptid #6), by Seanan McGuire

MAGIC FOR NOTHING took me a little bit longer to get into than other InCryptid novels. I’m not sure if it’s because of the new narrator – the youngest of the Price siblings, Antimony – or if it was because so much of the beginning relied on the backlash of the previous book. Once we got into the swing of things though – trapeze joke! – I really enjoyed it.

The Others is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I love The Others so much because it is almost a purely character driven story. There is still a great over arching plot to the whole series, but what keeps me turning the pages are the characters. ETCHED IN BONE continues that tradition and develops the characters even more than before.

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

March 10, 2017 Review 0

LOST SOUL takes a different approach than mosts Urban Fantasy P.I. novels, and because of that I found it a refreshing change of pace in the genre. The majority of P.I. novels in our genre follow a wizard or if not a wizard some other supernatural. Harbinger is just a vanilla human who’s been trained to investigate and take down the supernatural, all he has is his wits, his assistant, and a few magic items.
