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.

Review: Fandemic (Bigtime #5) by Jennifer Estep

June 15, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

I tend to read KARMA GIRL, the first book in the Bigtime series, two to three times a year. It’s that good. FANDEMIC is an entertaining addition to the series without being overly repetitive.

FANDEMIC looks at the inevitable fan clubs that exist in a world where superheroes and supervilains are rampant; think Comic-con, but for real.

Review: The Big Fix (In a Fix #3) by Linda Grimes

Fun and quirky, THE BIG FIX wasn’t exactly what I expected it was going to be. This urban fantasy series is so different than any other out there right now that I would read it solely for that reason. Luckily, it’s got a good story and characters to root for, making it a fresh, worthwhile read in a sea of books that start to feel similar after a while.

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

June 4, 2015 Review 4 ★★★★

There be monsters here; amid the gas lamp laden walkways of Victorian era London in THE SHADOW REVOLUTION and just a few magic practitioners stand in defense against the darkness. I loved the setting and the world building set up in this story and the idea of a order of magical practitioners with various sorts of skills really peaked my interest.

May 29, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

The Charley Davidson series is one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series. I love the humor, the complexities, and the mystery aspects. And EIGHTH GRAVE AFTER DARK is a treat to long time readers of the series, offering answers to quite a few questions that have come up over the course of the story.

Audiobook Review: Boundary Crossed (Boundary Magic #1) By Melissa F. Olson

Audiobook Review: Boundary Crossed (Boundary Magic #1) By Melissa F. Olson

May 19, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

I am a fan of Melissa F. Olson’s Scarlett Bernard series, so when I saw she had a new series coming out I instantly preordered it. If I already know that I like the author and the book is in the same genre I generally don’t read the summary because they often have spoilers in them. So it was a very pleasant surprise when I started listening to Boundary Crossed and discovered it is set in the same world as the Scarlett Bernard series.

May 13, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

Lost in a crowd? Need to find yourself? A place where you just belong? THE AFFINITIES introduces a wonderful/scary world where finding your place in the world is simply an inexpensive test away; and if you don’t fit into any of the 22 standard profiles, or affinities, you even get your money back!
