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.
