BLADE BOUND was a solid end to the thrilling and action filled Chicagoland Vampires series. It had everything you have come to expect from this series, from humor, Merit’s love of all of the food (there is an amazing moment involving chocolate that I want to experience myself), drama, cool fight scenes, to demonstrating the true strength of the bonds of love and friendship.

I love how this series unravels the overarching plot along with new details about Gin’s past ever so slowly across the books. SNARED is no different.
If you follow my reviews you know how much I love my magic systems. That’s the reason I love reading new urban fantasy series, because each one, or at least the good ones, have a new unique magic system to explore. THRONE TO THE WOLVES attracted me because of the nerdiness of the main character. I kept reading because of the awesome magic system.
MUDDY WATERS is set in a world where the boundaries between world have been taken down or thinned and an influx of supernaturals have come creating new rules, prejudices, and realities that humans and “Others” have to live with.
MAGIC FOR NOTHING took me a little bit longer to get into than other InCryptid novels. I’m not sure if it’s because of the new narrator – the youngest of the Price siblings, Antimony – or if it was because so much of the beginning relied on the backlash of the previous book. Once we got into the swing of things though – trapeze joke! – I really enjoyed it.
THE BURNING PAGE combines the best of THE MASKED CITY and THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY to produce a madcap, world-jumping caper. With the return of Alberich, stakes are high and Irene and Kai have no idea who they can trust, inside or outside the Library. A thrilling read, THE BURNING PAGE should delight any fan of the Invisible Library series.
SOULJACKER is a fun and at times dark paranormal romance novel. Obviously since the main character is a succubus, this book has a lot of sex since Lily needs it to survive.
When you mix incredibly powerful witches and hot djinns who are tied to their lamps for hundreds of years, you get the incredibly sexy RISING FOR AUTUMN, which surprised me in a few different ways: for such a short book, it had big action, big characters, and an even bigger story.
One of the benefits of not reading many YA books is that I don’t really take much issue with any possible story lines or character traits that might be over done in the genre.
TO CATCH A STOLEN SOUL is the first book in a series based on one of the wonderful characters from the Monster Haven series, Kam the djnn. When we met her, she had an interesting enough backstory that I wished she had her own book. Guess I got my wish with this one!
