Review: California Bones by Greg van Eekhout

Review: California Bones by Greg van Eekhout

June 21, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

Fans of MISTBORN are going to love Greg van Eekhout’s West Coast take on the magical heist story in CALIFORNIA BONES, with its alternate Los Angeles, quirky ensemble of thieves, and introduction to osteomancy. Though I devoured it with the same gusto that the Hierarch devours the bones of Daniel’s father, the narrative moves very quickly, cramming several books’ worth of story into a single novel. There are so many fascinating aspects of the world van Eekhout’s created that I want more time to get to know its intricacies, and I think the relationships, in particular, suffer for the speed.

Review: To Dance With the Devil (Blood Singer, #6) by Cat Adams

Review: To Dance With the Devil (Blood Singer, #6) by Cat Adams

December 2, 2013 Review 1 ★★★★

While I haven’t kept up with the Blood Singer series as much as I should have TO DANCE WITH THE DEVIL makes me want to go back and read all of the previous books. In some cases starting a series off six books in is not recommended considering the changes characters and plots have over time which can be hard for a new reader.

Release Day Review: Mist (Mist #1) by Susan Krinard

Release Day Review: Mist (Mist #1) by Susan Krinard

July 16, 2013 Review 1 ★★★

MIST is urban fantasy in the most classic application of the genre, taking the intricate mythology and tropes of classic Fantasy and transporting them to the streets of San Francisco. Reminiscent of Mercedes Lackey’s Bardic Voices, but with a Nordic twist, Krinard brings frost giants and ancient godlings to life in the modern world.
