Review: Borrowed Souls (Soul Charmer #1) by Chelsea Mueller

BORROWED SOULS started out really strong! Promising characters were surrounded in a richly developed world with an awesome magic system… That’s all there ever was though. I wanted to love this book, but the great start fell flat as nothing happened throughout the rest of BORROWED SOULS.

The Others is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I love The Others so much because it is almost a purely character driven story. There is still a great over arching plot to the whole series, but what keeps me turning the pages are the characters. ETCHED IN BONE continues that tradition and develops the characters even more than before.

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

LOST SOUL takes a different approach than mosts Urban Fantasy P.I. novels, and because of that I found it a refreshing change of pace in the genre. The majority of P.I. novels in our genre follow a wizard or if not a wizard some other supernatural. Harbinger is just a vanilla human who’s been trained to investigate and take down the supernatural, all he has is his wits, his assistant, and a few magic items.

At this point I’m pretty sure that John Ringo asked himself at the beginning of each Monster Hunter Memoirs book what was something cool that he could add to the Monster Hunter universe that Larry Corriea hadn’t done. With GRUNGE John Ringo answered the question, what would happen if a monster hunter could talk to monsters? In SINNERS, John Ringo takes on what would happen if everyone knew about monsters?

Martians Abroad has a great premise. Kids who were born and grew up on Mars coming to Earth for school. Boarding school stories are a little over done, but they can still turn out to be great. However, as I started to read Martians Abroad I realized that a lot of the problem with the story was the original premise.

If Harry Dresden were a college professor in a post financial crash New York City he would be Professor Croft. No, DEMON MOON is not a carbon copy of the Dresden Files, but there are enough similarities that I feel at home in the Prof Croft universe.
