Catnip for process nerds and urban fantasy fans alike, riding along with Nell Ingram on any given day is a treat.
I’m down for any story with a heroine, but I was especially drawn to EVER THE BRAVE when I found out Britta had saved the king in the first book. I immediately wanted to know more about her and her Channeler powers.
THE CURIOUS AFFAIR OF THE WITCH AT WAYSIDE CROSS captures the Victorian interest in the supernatural elements really well with the plot revolving around a mysterious society and talk of otherworldly characters.
The promise of time travel shenanigans drew me to WEAVE A CIRCLE ROUND. When done right, time travel can be immensely fun and mind-bending. I was intrigued and excited to find out how Freddy had arrived thousands of years in the past and what the consequences would be.
Novellas are the perfect medium for Christmas themed stories: perfect to read in one sitting under a blanket on a gray day. That said, I think I would have gladly read a full length novel about Ryan and Winter and their roller-coaster week before Christmas. BITTERSWEET CHRISTMAS featured characters that got you invested quickly and kept you hooked until the end.
LURE OF OBLIVION is a pretty fun, action-filled installment of the Mercury Pack series. The plot is really compelling and complex mostly involving a clash between shifters and small town humans. What struck me in this story was the utter brutality and pettiness of the bad guys.
In RULE OF LUCK, there’s tarot readings, love, and questionable science. Professional tarot card reader Felicia Sevigny is recruited by the Russian mob. She’s going to help them take down the evil government, in return she’ll be given more control over her destiny.
Balancing on a thin point between Science Fiction, Thriller, and Horror, INTO THE DROWNING DEEP transcends genre to be an engrossing, heartbreaking, thrill ride.
PERFECT GRAVITY picks up pretty much right after the events of its prequel WANTED AND WIRED. Characters from that book play significant roles in this one but its not really a necessity to have read WANTED AND WIRED to understand what is going on here.
I finished CREATURES OF WILL AND TEMPER in one day. I must confess I have a particular weakness for Victorian settings, courting, and excessive blushing. Combine that with fencing, demons, and queer characters and you have my very devoted attention. Finishing this novel had me desperately searching for more of Molly Tanzer’s work.
