Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

April 12, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

Some people may call FELLSIDE heart-breaking, but that is too gentle. The book rips out your heart, stabs it with a shank made from an old toothbrush, and finishes it off with a few good whacks with a fire-extinguisher for good measure. This book is incredibly violent, but also incredibly touching, with characters that will stick with you long after the last page.

Review: The Immortals (Olympus Bound #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky

Review: The Immortals (Olympus Bound #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky

February 22, 2016 Review 3 ★★★★

For somebody who loves stories with gods and goddesses, THE IMMORTALS description put it right up my alley! While a bit darker than I imagined from the original description I read of the book, THE IMMORTALS is an ambitious debut that manages to pull the Greek gods and goddesses into our modern age in a very unique way.

Review: Fearless (Pax Arcana #3) by Elliott James

Review: Fearless (Pax Arcana #3) by Elliott James

October 19, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

After spending some time in the woods in book two, I’m glad to be back with the gang from book one in the third book of the Pax Arcana series, FEARLESS. John is as snarky as ever, and it’s good to see him in fine form, as he is the main thing holding FEARLESS together. At times, the story feels a bit chaotic, with countless new characters being introduced and new creatures and powers abounding. But with the strong central character, and a good mystery, James manages to hold it together admirably.

Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

September 22, 2015 Review 2 ★★

For all of its intriguing cover and title, TRAILER PARK FAE has a lot more fae and a lot less trailer park than one would expect. Frequently confusing, full of characters with multiples names, with a plot that didn’t make itself clear until way farther through the book than it should have, TRAILER PARK FAE is a different take on fae in urban fantasy, but a bit of a slow read.

Review and Interview: Garden of Dreams and Desires (Crescent City #3) by Kristen Painter

April 27, 2015 Guests, Review 0 ★★★

I got a chance to ask Kristen some questions! See below for our quick interview! All Things Urban Fantasy: Why New Orleans? What made you decide to set the trilogy there? Kristen Painter: I love the city, love spending time there. I just needed a reason to visit more often and call it research. ATUF: Now that the Crescent City trilogy is finished, do you have any plans to continue to write books in the same world? Will we ever see Augustine and Harlow in future books? KP: I don’t have any plans to return to this world. I feel… Read more »

Review: Jinn and Juice (The Jinni #1) by Nicole Peeler

Review: Jinn and Juice (The Jinni #1) by Nicole Peeler

April 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Following an author from one series to another, especially in the same genre, can sometimes be a bit of a risk. After all, it’s not the same characters that you already fell in love with, not the same world, and who knows? You may not like the new characters and world building, or they might be so similar you get the two confused. Luckily, JINN AND JUICE is a great start to a new series, original and fun, that really shows Peeler knows what she’s doing.

Review: Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1) by Gail Carriger

Review: Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1) by Gail Carriger

March 17, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

I was so excited to hear that there was going to be a new series dedicated to Prudence, the daughter of Conall and Alexia Maccon from the Parasol Protectorate series. Prudence was such an interesting child who could steal the abilities of any supernatural she touched that a whole new series dedicated to her hijinks as a young adult just had to be written. PRUDENCE is an absolute delight with dangerous new creatures and high skies dirgible adventures, odd new supernatural characters and mysteries, and the typical witty fancifullness I’ve come to expect and enjoy from Gail Carriger’s work.
