Review: The Hanged Man (Her Majesty’s Psychic Service #1) by P.N. Elrod

Review: The Hanged Man (Her Majesty’s Psychic Service #1) by P.N. Elrod

May 25, 2015 Review 1 ★★★

I’m a little wary of a book that heads each chapter with the device, ‘In which …’ and, indeed, THE HANGED MAN by P.N. Elrod is fairly typical of the genre that mixes steampunk with the Victorian lady detective. Alex Pendlebury, ‘blessed’ with a paranormal gift, is on her way to spinsterhood, being far too straight-forward and observational for her upper-class peers, though she lacks the wry sense of humor of many of her fellows in the genre. Pleasant, though routine, THE HANGED MAN reminded me of a number of other books, cobbled together.

Review: City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta

Review: City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta

May 18, 2015 Review 1 ★★★

CITY OF FAE is both a predictable and unpredictable new adult urban fantasy. Predictable, because it uses typical UF tropes-like the girl who is more than she knows and the mysterious, protective, hot love interest. But unpredictable because it takes those tropes and uses them in a completely unexpected way.

Lost in a crowd? Need to find yourself? A place where you just belong? THE AFFINITIES introduces a wonderful/scary world where finding your place in the world is simply an inexpensive test away; and if you don’t fit into any of the 22 standard profiles, or affinities, you even get your money back!

Review: The Shattered Court (The Four Arts #1) by M.J. Scott

Review: The Shattered Court (The Four Arts #1) by M.J. Scott

May 11, 2015 Review 0 ★★★

THE SHATTERED COURT was one of those books that drew me in with a gorgeous cover, and was left to live up to expectations. Luckily, though not without issues, THE SHATTERED COURT was an enjoyable fantasy novel, set in a world very similar to historical England with the twist of magic to make it more interesting.

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: The Exile (The Fae #1) by C. T. Adams

Review: The Exile (The Fae #1) by C. T. Adams

April 20, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

Though the beginning is a bit rocky, THE EXILE is a fast-paced race of a book, full of twists and turns and a great new world to explore. From the great cover which sucked me in to the last chapter, I delighted in this book and am so thrilled it’s a new series I get to follow.
