Review: Super Powereds Year 1 (Super Powereds #1) by Drew Hayes

Review: Super Powereds Year 1 (Super Powereds #1) by Drew Hayes

September 29, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

Super heroes are a little outside of what we usually review here, but since I enjoyed SUPER POWEREDS YEAR 1 so much I figured I’d review it here. While I was eagerly awaiting the release of Drew Hayes next book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series, I decided to look into some of the other books he’s written. I’m usually not a big fan of super hero books, tv shows, or movies, but since I loved Drew Hayes other series I decided to give SUPER POWEREDS YEAR 1 a try.

Early Review: Shadow Born (Shadows of Salem #1) by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton

Early Review: Shadow Born (Shadows of Salem #1) by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton

SHADOW BORN is a really fun read, with an awesome female protagonist. Brooke Chandler is a character that I could read about all day. She’s intelligent, no nonsense, kick-butt, highly independent, and an amazing detective. Then she gets placed into this awesome urban fantasy police procedural, which after reading SHADOW BORN and NIGHTSHADES, is fast becoming my favorite niche in urban fantasy.

Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

July 19, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

As a life long lover of science fiction and fantasy I’ve always searched for a great story that could combine the two genres. I’ve read/attempted to read many, many books that had magic in space, but none of them have been worth mentioning until I stumbled across SALVAGE TROUBLE on Audible a couple of weeks ago, and since then the Black Ocean series has been the only thing I’ve listened to as I quickly devoured the seven books that are up on Audible right now.

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

July 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.

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

Review: 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.
