While the best of Urban Fantasy can balance character growth and enthralling world building, sometimes a book puts all its eggs in one basket. TELL THE WIND AND FIRE has a world, and though the politics and geography can be a bit odd, the magic is well developed. None of this matters a whit, however, when compared to how much I loved Lucie.

5bats! Review & Giveaway: A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire #1) by Jessica Cluess

5bats! Review & Giveaway: A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire #1) by Jessica Cluess

September 21, 2016 Review 6 ★★★★★

A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING was one of my most anticipated books of the fall. I’ve been looking forward to it since March. So you can imagine how happy I was that it lived up to my high expectations. Honestly, this book just killed me. There were moments that were like a kick to the stomach. There were moments where I was so happy for Henrietta. It was an up and down rollercoaster of emotions that I loved every second of.

5bat! Release Day Review: Deja Who (Insighter #1) by MaryJanice Davidson

5bat! Release Day Review: Deja Who (Insighter #1) by MaryJanice Davidson

September 6, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

I will admit it: I started reading DEJA WHO solely because it is set in Chicago. But I continued reading it for the originality, the wit, and the mystery. First in a new series, DEJA WHO is a huge departure for Davidson after the 15 book Undead series. Focusing on the prickly Leah, an Insighter, somebody who can see people’s past lives, the world is creative and original, the romance is sweet, and the mystery is nothing too scary.

The Fly By Night series is quickly becoming one series I know I don’t want to miss. Though categorized as paranormal romance, FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM reads more like an urban fantasy with a romantic subplot, with the mystery taking center stage. The characters are really what shine, making FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM a super enjoyable read.

This book is fabulous. Automatic new favourite.

I fell in love with Jemm, the main characters, from the first few pages of the book. She’s strong, she’s worried about her family and she wants a better life for them. She wants to follow her dreams, but the same sport that is putting food on their table is the one their mother claims killed her father. Oh, and girls aren’t allowed to play bahja, a kind of sensory-deprived fencing/martial art/yoga. Oops.

Early Review: Shadow Born (Shadows of Salem #1) by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton

Early Review: Shadow Born (Shadows of Salem #1) by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton

SHADOW BORN is a really fun read, with an awesome female protagonist. Brooke Chandler is a character that I could read about all day. She’s intelligent, no nonsense, kick-butt, highly independent, and an amazing detective. Then she gets placed into this awesome urban fantasy police procedural, which after reading SHADOW BORN and NIGHTSHADES, is fast becoming my favorite niche in urban fantasy.

Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

July 19, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

As a life long lover of science fiction and fantasy I’ve always searched for a great story that could combine the two genres. I’ve read/attempted to read many, many books that had magic in space, but none of them have been worth mentioning until I stumbled across SALVAGE TROUBLE on Audible a couple of weeks ago, and since then the Black Ocean series has been the only thing I’ve listened to as I quickly devoured the seven books that are up on Audible right now.
