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.

While Urban Fantasy often offers the emotion and character growth of Romance, the best surprises lie on the other side of the happily ever after. Through the looking glass of this familiar trope we see beloved characters moving to the burbs, dealing with bossy neighbors, and killing deadly creatures to be home in time for dinner.
Whenever I see a new Rainshadow series book come out I admit I get a little excited for more dust bunny adventures. I know, I know they are the sidekicks/adorable pets of the main characters who are fabulous and tough and everything I’d want in a heroine. But I love them.
ENERGIZED is a well paced romantic thriller with just enough twists and supernatural flair to make it stand out.
Romantic thrillers are typically pretty formulaic. He has a military background and problems expressing his feelings. She has a shady past or a dark secret. They typically have sex super early on, then meet up again later on and it’s a bit awkward but sparks fly. ENERGIZED manages to hit all those bases, but has enough original additions that helped me devour it.
It’s always a bittersweet affair when one of your favorite series comes to a close. I’ve been listening to the Kitty Norville series for the past three years, so I haven’t been following the series since its inception, and it feels like it’s over too soon. That being said I was worried that when Carrie Vaughn introduced the idea of “the long game” that the series would start to drag or become repetitive. I did not ever find that too be the case, and I feel that KITTY SAVES THE WORLD is the perfect ending to such an amazing series.
Starting this review has been a bit difficult. Mainly because I just want to say, if you are not reading the Generation V series, you need to get on that. With DARK ASCENSION, book four in the series, the characters are at a crossroads and Brennan’s writing just keeps getting better (something I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to say after TAINTED BLOOD).
A short and sweet Cover Art Coverage!
I was quickly pulled into THE VEIL when Chloe Neill described the large box mounted cameras that would be triggered by magic use. The cameras carefully watching for anyone using magic or with magical abilities on most street corners instantly created a strong post-apocalyptic feel to the paranormal world that really peaked my interest.
