I loved THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE so much, and wasn’t expecting THE GIRL IN THE TOWER to live up to my lovely remembrances of the first book, mainly because I felt that the story in THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had been wrapped up. What more could possibly happen? Luckily, Arden managed to pull a story out of thin air and the reader gets to enjoy a whole new adventure with Vasya.

5bat! Release Day Review: Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer

5bat! Release Day Review: Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer

November 14, 2017 Review 0

I finished CREATURES OF WILL AND TEMPER in one day. I must confess I have a particular weakness for Victorian settings, courting, and excessive blushing. Combine that with fencing, demons, and queer characters and you have my very devoted attention. Finishing this novel had me desperately searching for more of Molly Tanzer’s work.

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

September 5, 2017 Review 1

THE BRIGHTEST FELL is an entertaining mix of the comfort of an adventure between well established characters with the dissonance and uncertainty of new blood thrown into the mix. This deep into the series, October Daye’s group of irregulars are beloved and entertaining, it is the unexpected appearance of her biological family that throws a wrench into the mix.

5bat! Review: Trial by Fire (Schooled in Magic #7) by Christopher G Nuttall

5bat! Review: Trial by Fire (Schooled in Magic #7) by Christopher G Nuttall

July 14, 2017 Review 0

The Schooled in Magic series has fast become one of my favorite series of the year. At some point, I’ll have to go back and relisten to them so that I can get a review up for each book. I just finished the seventh book in the series, TRIAL BY FIRE. A lot of series start to lose steam by the fifth book or so, that is not the case with Schooled in Magic. TRIAL BY FIRE continues the series perfectly.
