Review: Jinn and Juice (The Jinni #1) by Nicole Peeler

Review: Jinn and Juice (The Jinni #1) by Nicole Peeler

April 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Following an author from one series to another, especially in the same genre, can sometimes be a bit of a risk. After all, it’s not the same characters that you already fell in love with, not the same world, and who knows? You may not like the new characters and world building, or they might be so similar you get the two confused. Luckily, JINN AND JUICE is a great start to a new series, original and fun, that really shows Peeler knows what she’s doing.

Review:  The Diamond Conspiracy (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #4) by Pip Ballantine, Tee Morris

Review: The Diamond Conspiracy (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #4) by Pip Ballantine, Tee Morris

March 30, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

THE DIAMOND CONSPIRACY is full of steampunk awesomeness as I thought this whole series would be just from reading the story summary of PHOENIX RISING. It has everything from weird steampunk weapons and tricked out vehicles to intense action and some romance thrown in as well. Add a mad scientist doing creepy experiments and secrets upon secrets and this book is filled with so much delicious ideas.

Review: Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1) by Gail Carriger

Review: Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1) by Gail Carriger

March 17, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

I was so excited to hear that there was going to be a new series dedicated to Prudence, the daughter of Conall and Alexia Maccon from the Parasol Protectorate series. Prudence was such an interesting child who could steal the abilities of any supernatural she touched that a whole new series dedicated to her hijinks as a young adult just had to be written. PRUDENCE is an absolute delight with dangerous new creatures and high skies dirgible adventures, odd new supernatural characters and mysteries, and the typical witty fancifullness I’ve come to expect and enjoy from Gail Carriger’s work.

INFINITY BELL, the second book in the House Immortal series, shows that Devon Monk just doesn’t know when to let up – in a good way! INFINITY BELL really takes the reader on a wild ride, throwing them from one conflict to the next, with smooth writing allowing for an excellent reading experience.

Review:  Phoenix in My Fortune (Monster Haven #6) by R.L. Naquin

Review: Phoenix in My Fortune (Monster Haven #6) by R.L. Naquin

March 10, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

PHOENIX IN MY FORTUNE is a fond farewell to a wonderfully wacky universe filled with uniquely diverse characters and with tons of heart at its core. This story is a lot more serious than the previous books in the Monster Haven series as it has to wrap up a pretty dark series storyline involving the destruction of the world as our beloved characters know it.

Release Day Review: Vision in Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop

Release Day Review: Vision in Silver (The Others #3) by Anne Bishop

March 3, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

VISION IN SILVER was, while as enjoyable as always, a bit of a disappointment after MURDER OF CROWS. Much of VISION IN SILVER felt like build up to a larger issue that will be realized in the next book. While not exactly ending on a cliffhanger, VISION IN SILVER left me wanting more – more action, more time with the primary characters, more everything.

Review: Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear

Review: Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear

February 20, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

This steampunk western adventure includes a bevy in a brothel, a lethal sewing machine, and love at first sight. Elizabeth Bear introduces her audience to KAREN MEMORY (actually spelled ‘Memery’), a working girl at the Hôtel Mon Cherie with a penchant for dime novels and a huge heart that gets her into trouble. The ladies of Madame Damnable’s are worth following all on their own, but Bear sweetens the pot with a series of mysterious murders in the vein of Jack the Ripper. The novel’s only misstep is in mild over-plotting, but there’s no denying it’s one hell of an adrenaline ride at the end.
