Review: Magic For Nothing (InCryptid #6), by Seanan McGuire

Review: Magic For Nothing (InCryptid #6), by Seanan McGuire

March 28, 2017 Review 0

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 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

March 10, 2017 Review 0

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?

5 Bat! Review: Midnight Curse (Disrupted Magic #1), by Melissa F. Olson

5 Bat! Review: Midnight Curse (Disrupted Magic #1), by Melissa F. Olson

February 9, 2017 Review 0

MIDNIGHT CURSE is the first in the Disrupted Magic series, but is actually the 10th novel written in the Old World Chronology series by Melissa F. Olson. I didn’t realise it was part of a larger series until after I had finished it, and I didn’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the previous books.
