Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

September 5, 2017 Review 1

THE BRIGHTEST FELL is an entertaining mix of the comfort of an adventure between well established characters with the dissonance and uncertainty of new blood thrown into the mix. This deep into the series, October Daye’s group of irregulars are beloved and entertaining, it is the unexpected appearance of her biological family that throws a wrench into the mix.

A police procedural should investigate the main characters, just as the characters are investigating a crime. In GRAVEYARD SHIFT, there doesn’t seem to be much individuality between its investigators, when there should be worlds of difference.

URBAN ENEMIES is a pretty fun romp into the twisted minds of the bad guys from various urban fantasy series. There were of course some characters who I had no clue about. Luckily each story starts off with a general summary of the series the character(s) appear in so there was some idea of what was going on.

Review: Never Dare a Dragon (Boston Dragons #3), by Ashlyn Chase

Authors sometimes make confusing choices, adding a mythology or a plot twist that is such unnecessary deus ex machina that it almost ruins a book. NEVER DARE A DRAGON has characters who feel real,  and it’s disappointing to have most of their problems disappear in the last quarter of the book.

Review: Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw

Review: Strange Practice (Dr. Greta Helsing #1) by Vivian Shaw

July 27, 2017 Review 1

While I enjoyed STRANGE PRACTICE overall, I couldn’t help feel a little duped. The series carries Greta’s name but she’s one of six POV characters. It was a disappointing realization because Greta was my hook into STRANGE PRACTICE. A descendant of Van Helsing runs a medical practice for the supernatural? Yes please.
