Review: The Big Fix (In a Fix #3) by Linda Grimes

Review: The Big Fix (In a Fix #3) by Linda Grimes

June 11, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Fun and quirky, THE BIG FIX wasn’t exactly what I expected it was going to be. This urban fantasy series is so different than any other out there right now that I would read it solely for that reason. Luckily, it’s got a good story and characters to root for, making it a fresh, worthwhile read in a sea of books that start to feel similar after a while.

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.
