Review: Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw

Review: Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw

July 27, 2017 Review 1

While I enjoyed STRANGE PRACTICE overall, I couldn’t help feel a little duped. The series carries Greta’s name but she’s one of six POV characters. It was a disappointing realization because Greta was my hook into STRANGE PRACTICE. A descendant of Van Helsing runs a medical practice for the supernatural? Yes please.

5Bat! Review: The Boy On The Bridge (The Girl with All the Gifts #2), by M. R. Carey

The events of THE BOY ON THE BRIDGE overlap with what happens in THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS. It isn’t necessary to have read the first book, there are definite points that will be less fun if you’re not caught up on what happened in the first book.

What I loved best about THE BOY ON THE BRIDGE was the the way the military and scientific communities played off each other.

As we start IMPRUDENCE, the second book in The Custard Protocol, we find Prudence has reached her majority and is now a full grown “ish” adult ready to taste some independence. Unfortunately she now has no outside protection against people who want to kill her and as a result of her actions in the previous book she’s on the bad side of the Queen.

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.

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.
