Review: Sorcery for Beginners, by Matt Harry

It’s rare to find a book aimed at children, with a distinct voice to the narrator, that is also enjoyable as an adult. SORCERY FOR BEGINNERS is a surprisingly mature story that deals with bullying, social injustice, betrayal and yes, sorcery.

Sightlines (The Community Book 3) by Santino Hassell

Sightlines (The Community Book 3) by Santino Hassell

October 12, 2017 Review 0

Working to take down an evil organization is hard when you’re still on the inside. As the 3rd book in a series, SIGHTLINES wraps up the Community plotline. As an evil company, Community seems to get worse and worse with every chapter. Inside the Farm, there’s torture, reprogramming and rape. Despite the bleakness, Chase Payne’s sarcasm and constant dickery keeps the bleakness from getting too dark.

Review: Grigori (Brothers of Ash and Fire #1), Lauren Smith

Review: Grigori (Brothers of Ash and Fire #1), Lauren Smith

October 4, 2017 Review 0

GRIGORI is a modern fairy tale set in Russia, in deep dark libraries, high rise condos, and sprawling estates in the forests. It stars fun new mythology and just enough tropes to be fun.

Madelyn is a university professor on sabbatical, researching dragon mythology in Russia, when she stumbles on a secret and gets kidnapped by the very rich, very imposing Grigori.

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: Graveyard Shift by Michael F. Haspil

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.
