5Bat! Review: The Girl in the Tower (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden

I loved THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE so much, and wasn’t expecting THE GIRL IN THE TOWER to live up to my lovely remembrances of the first book, mainly because I felt that the story in THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had been wrapped up. What more could possibly happen? Luckily, Arden managed to pull a story out of thin air and the reader gets to enjoy a whole new adventure with Vasya.

Revolution is a messy, dangerous business and THE WAKING LAND doesn’t pull punches to depict it. After her father’s failed uprising, Elanna Valtai was taken from her home and placed as a ward within King Erylais’ household. Over 11 years, she learned to hate her homeland and its culture. When another revolution rises Elanna must become a figurehead and unite Caeris, a country that she doesn’t fully love or understand.

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

June 4, 2015 Review 4

There be monsters here; amid the gas lamp laden walkways of Victorian era London in THE SHADOW REVOLUTION and just a few magic practitioners stand in defense against the darkness. I loved the setting and the world building set up in this story and the idea of a order of magical practitioners with various sorts of skills really peaked my interest.

Review: Hammer of Angels (Shadowstorm #2) by G. T. Almasi

Review: Hammer of Angels (Shadowstorm #2) by G. T. Almasi

February 26, 2014 Review 0

While straying toward the science fiction spectrum of speculative fiction, HAMMER OF ANGELS nonetheless is likely to appeal to urban fantasy fans looking to shake up their reading habits. After all, the Shadowstorm series features a ass-kicking heroine with superhuman powers plus a cast of witty supporting characters set in a fictional world mirrored after our own – pretty much like every UF novel, it just so happens this one doesn’t have any magic and takes place in an alternate history where Germany won World War II.

Review: A Study in Darkness (The Baskerville Affair, #2) by Emma Jane Holloway

Review: A Study in Darkness (The Baskerville Affair, #2) by Emma Jane Holloway

October 25, 2013 Review 0

A STUDY IN DARKNESS has a much darker and more gruesome tone than its predecesor, A STUDY IN SILKS. While I liked the lighter tone in the previous book I enjoyed the fact that Holloway ramped up the danger since that meant more fun battle scenes with steampunk technology and thrilling chases. I was also amazed at just how dark and gory this book gets with the murders done by Ripper explained in stark detail.
