The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant (Fred, the Vampire Accountant #1) by Drew Hayes

The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant (Fred, the Vampire Accountant #1) by Drew Hayes

May 4, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but sometimes they get a little too serious. These are stories about werewolves, vampires, witches, and eldritch horrors. These are ridiculous and crazy things, I love the serious stories, but it’s fun to take a comedic twist on the genre.

Spark (Feyguard #1) by Anthea Sharp

Spark (Feyguard #1) by Anthea Sharp

April 4, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

Let’s be honest, what guy isn’t attracted to a gamer girl? That was the first thing that drew me to SPARK. The second thing was that SPARK revolved around the fey. In my opinion, werewolves and vampires have gotten over used in urban fantasy and paranormal romance, whereas I think the fey are still fresh. Each of those things on their own would’ve piqued my interest, but Anthea Sharp blended them together to make a truly amazing book.

5bat! Review: The Aeronaut’s Windlass (The Cinder Spire #1) by Jim Butcher

5bat! Review: The Aeronaut’s Windlass (The Cinder Spire #1) by Jim Butcher

September 29, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★★

If I could give this book a six bat rating I would. THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS more than deserves it. Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files are what first got me interested in Urban Fantasy, but I haven’t yet tried Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series, so THE AERONAUT’S WINDLASS is the first book of Butcher’s besides the Dresden Files that I’ve read. And at every page I was reminded why Jim Butcher is a grand master in his field.

Early Review: The Veil (Devil’s Isle #1) by Chloe Neill

Early Review: The Veil (Devil’s Isle #1) by Chloe Neill

August 3, 2015 Uncategorized 0 ★★★

I was quickly pulled into THE VEIL when Chloe Neill described the large box mounted cameras that would be triggered by magic use. The cameras carefully watching for anyone using magic or with magical abilities on most street corners instantly created a strong post-apocalyptic feel to the paranormal world that really peaked my interest.

Release Day Review: A Murder of Mages (The Maradaine Constabulary #1) by Marshall Ryan Maresca

Release Day Review: A Murder of Mages (The Maradaine Constabulary #1) by Marshall Ryan Maresca

July 7, 2015 Review 0 ★★★

A MURDER OF MAGES is a book that should’ve been right up my alley. A murder mystery, taking place in a victorian era alternate world with magic. Though A MURDER OF MAGES starts really strong, introducing Satrine and her forged papers, and then throwing her and her new partner directly into a case. The story quickly stalled out until the action picked up again in the middle of the book.

Shades of Treason (Anomaly #1) by Sandy Williams

Shades of Treason (Anomaly #1) by Sandy Williams

July 3, 2015 Review 3 ★★★★

Though SHADES OF TREASON is science fiction, it really felt a lot like an urban fantasy story just in a sci-fi setting. The main character, Ash, is an anomaly. Though just what an anomaly is was never explained, anomalies are stronger, faster, and in some ways smarter than other humans. All those extra abilities made Ash feel a lot like your standard supernatural urban fantasy heroine.
