Review: The Peter Grant/Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch

Lies Sleep­ing by Ben Aaronovitch My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I just fin­ished Lies Sleep­ing after read­ing the entire series straight through, so this review is about the series as much as about the ulti­mate entry in it. Wow! I’ve been immersed in the mar­velous world Aaronovitch cre­at­ed for us, and it’s a shock com­ing back. […]

Review: A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne

A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars This book rep­re­sents a major change from the Iron Druid series, so I worked hard to set aside my expec­ta­tions of Hearne based on lov­ing those. A Plague of Giants is every bit as well-writ­ten as that series, maybe even bet­ter! Still, I […]

Review: Attack the Geek by Michael R. Underwood

Attack the Geek by Michael R. Under­wood My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Excuse me, but SQUEE! More Ree Reyes! More Drake! More East­wood and Grog­nard! Yes, more Geeko­man­cy!  Michael Under­wood is back with a delight­ful novel­la and if I have ANY com­plaints, it’s that this is a novel­la instead of a nov­el. That’s just because […]

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

Gun­metal Mag­ic by Ilona Andrews My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’m fair­ly sure that I missed a Kate Daniels book because I don’t recall some of the events referred to in this book. That annoys me, and I’ll have to go back and read what­ev­er the last one was out of order now. It’ll be […]

Book Review: Enthralled edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong

Enthralled by Melis­sa Marr My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Jour­neys, lit­er­al or oth­er­wise, are the theme of this young adult anthol­o­gy. Appro­pri­ate­ly enough, it was con­ceived as the result of a book tour. “Giovanni’s Farewell” by Clau­dia Gray is a sweet, com­ing-of-age sto­ry of sorts. The twist is that it fea­tures a broth­er and sis­ter, twins, rather […]

Review: Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Chance must have thought read­ers were bored with the Cassandra/Mircea match because much of this book is spent with Cassie falling for Pritkin with­out real­ly being aware that she’s get­ting into dan­ger­ous ter­ri­to­ry. Palmer isn’t one of my favorite char­ac­ters. She isn’t an ass-kicker, […]

Review: Spellbound by Kelley Armstrong

Spell Bound by Kel­ley Arm­strong My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Wak­ing the Witch and Spell Bound should tru­ly be read back to back. In fact, they should be read with 13 on hand, almost as a tril­o­gy with­in the series. At the end of Wak­ing the Witch, Savan­nah silent­ly thought that if it would reunite […]

Review: Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre

Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I have to give a fair­ly high rat­ing to a book that involves a woman who large­ly saves her­self from mul­ti­ple assas­sins (nat­ur­al and super­nat­ur­al) sent by the head of a drug car­tel. There are sexy men in her life (three, in fact), but she’s […]

Book Review: The Horns of Elfland edited by Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman

The Horns of Elfland by Ellen Kush­n­er My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars It took a while to track down this vol­ume, as it has long been out of print. The inter­li­brary loan was, once again, my friend. But how odd to read an actu­al phys­i­cal book again, when I’ve been read­ing ebooks almost exclu­sive­ly lately!

Review: Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth

Blood Oath by Christo­pher Farnsworth My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Blood Oath is an inter­est­ing and fair­ly refresh­ing vari­a­tion on the vam­pire riff. Most of the cur­rent tales give us a suave, sexy preda­tor who mes­mer­izes his or her prey, leav­ing humans pin­ing for their pres­ence. They might even fall in love with a human. […]
