Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

September 22, 2015 Review 2 ★★

For all of its intriguing cover and title, TRAILER PARK FAE has a lot more fae and a lot less trailer park than one would expect. Frequently confusing, full of characters with multiples names, with a plot that didn’t make itself clear until way farther through the book than it should have, TRAILER PARK FAE is a different take on fae in urban fantasy, but a bit of a slow read.

Review: Wish Bound (Grimm Agency #3) by J.C. Nelson

Review: Wish Bound (Grimm Agency #3) by J.C. Nelson

September 14, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

WISH BOUND is a spectacular installment in the Grimm Agency series. While I can’t tell if this is the last book, or if the series is going to continue, WISH BOUND takes the plot line that has grown through the previous books and finishes it out with a bang. With characters we’ve come to know and love, it’s offers a wonderful sense of closure and offers answers to many of the questions that have come up throughout the series.

Release Day 5!Bat Review: A Red-Rose Chain (October Daye #9) by Seanan McGuire

Release Day 5!Bat Review: A Red-Rose Chain (October Daye #9) by Seanan McGuire

September 1, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★★

If THE WINTER LONG was a cataclysmic event completing so many of the series’ arcs, A RED-ROSE CHAIN is a triumphant rise from the ashes. Toby and her friends are thrown into unfamiliar waters with the highest of stakes, and the narrative sparkles along as they investigate, quip, and kick ass. A return of everything fantastic about this series, A RED-ROSE CHAIN proves that with good and the bad revelations in her rearview mirror, Toby’s adventures march triumphantly onward.

Review: City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta

Review: City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta

May 18, 2015 Review 1 ★★★

CITY OF FAE is both a predictable and unpredictable new adult urban fantasy. Predictable, because it uses typical UF tropes-like the girl who is more than she knows and the mysterious, protective, hot love interest. But unpredictable because it takes those tropes and uses them in a completely unexpected way.

I got a chance to ask Kristen some questions! See below for our quick interview! All Things Urban Fantasy: Why New Orleans? What made you decide to set the trilogy there? Kristen Painter: I love the city, love spending time there. I just needed a reason to visit more often and call it research. ATUF: Now that the Crescent City trilogy is finished, do you have any plans to continue to write books in the same world? Will we ever see Augustine and Harlow in future books? KP: I don’t have any plans to return to this world. I feel… Read more »

Review: The Exile (The Fae #1) by C. T. Adams

April 20, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

Though the beginning is a bit rocky, THE EXILE is a fast-paced race of a book, full of twists and turns and a great new world to explore. From the great cover which sucked me in to the last chapter, I delighted in this book and am so thrilled it’s a new series I get to follow.

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1)  by J.A. Kazimer

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1) by J.A. Kazimer

December 22, 2014 Review 1 ★★★

THE FAIRYLAND MURDERS was a interesting mixing of noir detective stories with fairy tales. With this mixture of a gritty murder mystery with light fanciful fairies and princesses you get an at times bizarre world filled with some hilarious interactions between characters. There are some neat references to fairy tale characters and fairy tales.

Review: City of Eternal Night (Crescent City #2) by Kristen Painter

December 18, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

Reading CITY OF ETERNAL NIGHT is like getting sucked into a whole new world. It’s one of those books that makes you wonder where the time went, since it flows so smoothly and effortlessly. It was a treat to revisit Harlow and Augustine, and their world full of fae politics and intrigue.
