Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1

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.

Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher

June 9, 2016 Review 4

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.

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.

Early Review: Roses and Rot by Kat Howard

Extremely compelling, ROSES AND ROT is a book that grabbed me from the first few pages and didn’t let go. This is a book that kept me up late, that I read in one sitting. It simultaneously drags the reader to keep turning the pages but also manages to feel like a languid, meandering walk that you wish could last forever.

Review: The Voodoo Killings: A Kincaid Strange Novel, by Kristi Charish

May 15, 2016 Review 0

Kincaid Sinclair has just had her livelihood made illegal, discovers a ghost trap in her lobby and now a random zombie shows up at her favourite bar… She’s having a rough day in Seattle. And of course, it’s raining.

THE VOODOO KILLINGS takes place in the wet, ghost-filled world of Seattle, where a new police chief has put a stop on using mediums to question murder victims and witnesses, either in zombie or ghost form. Overnight, Kincaid has lost her main source of income and her Detective boyfriend too. He says it’s not related, but she figures it is; when you raise the dead for a living, you gotta trust your gut feeling.
