Delightfully creepy and fun, episode one of Bookburners season two, CREEPY TOWN, is a perfect bite-sized read.

It’s no secret that I adore the SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series, having given 4 and 5 bats to the last two titles in the series. I’m pleased to say that TO LOVE A WOLF did not disappoint, keeping the werewolf/criminal action high, the romance hot and the mystery strong throughout the whole book. Cooper and Everly are super together and I finished their story in just one day.
While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.
So I was coming off a long string of amazing Sci-Fi books that I’d been looking forward to for a long time, and I ran into the problem that I’m guessing almost all readers run into every once in awhile… After reading so many great books in a row I didn’t know what to read next. I spent a couple days not reading anything at all, because I just didn’t know what to pick up to follow so many awesome reads. However, I couldn’t last long without reading something so I decided to go back and reread an old classic, STORM FRONT.
When I picked up HER SECRET SPY, with its typically suspense-romance cover, I wasn’t expecting to be reviewing it for All Things Urban Fantasy; but it turns out that the main character, Lissa, has psychic powers and runs an occult curio shop. Suddenly, it was surprisingly up my alley! It also helps that the writing was better than the average Harlequin monthly.
MUCH OF MADNESS wraps you up in a magical world full of mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this story although my one issue was that I kept feeling like I was missing some key information that was covered in a previous book which is odd since this is the first book in a series.
I was drawn to ALPHA WOLF NEED NOT APPLY, not just because its a Terry Spear story but I thought we might get a romance with a beta wolf which I haven’t been able to find much of. What we got was close enough and awesome.
I feel like COMPANY TOWN snuck up on me; at first I was reading a pretty good dystopian-type novel, and then BAM, it turned into a fabulous, terrifyingly too-close-for-comfort near scifi with interesting new concepts and amazingly real characters.
