Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

September 23, 2014 Review 5 ★★

SALT & STORM sounded so good, but unfortunately, the description and the book don’t actually match up, and not for the better. With a whiney heroine, strong deviation from a typical romance plotline, and some frustrating questions left unanswered, SALT & STORM isn’t a book I’ll be revisiting.

Review: Feuds by Avery Hastings

Review: Feuds by Avery Hastings

September 4, 2014 Review 0 ★★

Having just finished FEUDS I’m having a problem – I’m still not entirely sure what it was about. Set in the future, check. Dystopian, also check. There are Priors, there are Gens/Imps, and they sort of co-exist. Except when they don’t. There’s an imminent election and whispers of a disease. And an underground fight club deal that can save a family from life in the slums. Somehow.

Review: Zeus is Dead by Michael G. Munz

Review: Zeus is Dead by Michael G. Munz

July 19, 2014 Review 0 ★★

ZEUS IS DEAD: A MONSTROUSLY INCONVENIENT ADVENTURE by Michael G. Munz is like GOOD OMENS – if Pratchett and Gaiman stopped after every paragraph to explain why their jokes are funny. There’s breaking the fourth wall, and then there’s demolishing the wall and reaching through the wreckage to punch the reader in the face. The book has the potential to be fun, and it’s clear that the author has a sense of humor, but unfortunately he fails to trust that his audience also has a sense of humor. Or a brain.

I picked up HER WILD PROTECTOR mainly due to the unique take on shifters being able to change into multiple forms. I liked learning the origin of the Metamorphs and the conflicts the face. The plot was pretty interesting and moved at a steady pace with a lot of suspense and action scenes. While I understand the

Review: Vampire’s Thirst (Awakening #2) by Cynthia Garner

Review: Vampire’s Thirst (Awakening #2) by Cynthia Garner

June 14, 2014 Review 0 ★★

The second in The Awakening series, VAMPIRE’S THIRST follows immediately after VAMPIRE’S HUNGER, and I was excited to see what Kimber and Duncan were going to do next. Turns out, it was have a bunch of sex, and fight. A bit more on the erotic side than most books we review here on All Things Urban Fantasy, VAMPIRE’S THIRST could have been so great, but unfortunately it fell flat for me, with characters behaving in a nonsensical manner in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, nearly a complete lack of world building, and a mish-mash of tangents that were frustrating distractions from the main plot.

Review: All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

Review: All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

February 15, 2014 Review 1 ★★

ALL THAT GLOWS is exactly what a thirteen year old Kate would look for in a book. We have a faerie heroine who falls in love with a British prince (beautiful girl – check! British accents – check!) and because she is his bodyguard, she gets to spend every minute of the day with him. Is this not what every teenage girl fantasizes about?

I had high hopes for FATES when I read the description and was very excited to start reading it. Now that I’m finished, though, I can’t help but think I’d have liked it more if the description matched the actual story told.
