Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

Audiobook Review: First Watch (Fifth Ward #1) by Dale Lucas

August 23, 2017 Review 1

First Watch is an awesome book! I’ve read a lot of steampunk police procedural, quite a few of them I’ve reviewed here. I’ve enjoyed all of them, but they’ve always been a little lacking. First Watch is exactly the book I’ve always hoped the others would be. Let me clarify, First Watch is fantasy not steampunk, but I guess it was the fantasy angle I’d been hoping for in all the others.

Review: Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

Review: Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Adventures of Owl #3) by Kristi Charish

May 29, 2017 Review 1

A step up from its predecessors, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI is a welcome departure from the all-action, little-plot formula readers are familiar with from the first two novels. Delving deeper into supernatural politics, and significantly raising the stakes, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI shows an maturation of both Charish’s writing, and the main character, Owl.

Review: Mark of Truth (Wicked Kingdoms, #1) by Graceley Knox

Review: Mark of Truth (Wicked Kingdoms, #1) by Graceley Knox

May 23, 2017 Review 0

MARK OF TRUTH hits every expected beat in an urban fantasy/paranormal romance. There’s the loyal teammates, the hunky love interest that she kinda hates, the adopted pets, the adopted child. The world of MARK OF TRUTH is expansive (sometimes to its detriment) and features several rival fae factions.

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

February 24, 2016 Review 5

After ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again. Lucky for us, Shearin decided to self-publish more in the series! WEDDING BELLS, MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, and follows the same formula as other books in the series – successfully, I might add.

5bat! Review: The Brimstone Deception (SPI Files #3) by Lisa Shearin

5bat! Review: The Brimstone Deception (SPI Files #3) by Lisa Shearin

February 4, 2016 Review 2

Oh SPI Files, how do I love you? Let me count the ways! You’ve got action to keep me occupied, sexual tension for me to swoon about, snappy dialogue to keep me laughing out loud and a cast of characters I can’t help but love. THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION is no exception to the rule, and for me, is a perfect urban fantasy read.

Early 5bat! Review: The Undead Pool (The Hollows #12) by Kim Harrison

Early 5bat! Review: The Undead Pool (The Hollows #12) by Kim Harrison

February 24, 2014 Review 4

As satisfying for the quiet interactions in the background as for the sweeping action or big character growth, THE UNDEAD POOL is The Hollows at it’s best. The paranormal world of Rachel Morgan is an intricate ecosystem of magic and normalcy, and never is that so apparent as here near the series’s end.

Review: Soul of Fire (The Portals #2) by Laura Anne Gilman

Review: Soul of Fire (The Portals #2) by Laura Anne Gilman

September 27, 2013 Review 0

Laura Anne Gilman takes Clarke’s third law (“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”) and closes the loop back upon itself, nestling the physics and technology of our world back into the fabric of the mystical. Science is magic and magic is science in The Portals series, and this interconnected web of cause and effect makes each battle and each conflict leave a lasting mark on the world as we know it.
