Sandy M’s review of Lover Reborn (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 11) by J.R. Ward Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy published by Signet 2 Oct 12 I know there’s been some flak over the last few books in this series, folks aren’t liking the lack of romance, feel there’s less connection to characters, or don’t like the way [...]
Rebekah’s review of Gilded (St. Croix Chronicles, Book 2) by Karina Cooper Steampunk/Historical Urban Fantasy published by Avon 26 Dec 12 This is my first venture into the genre of steampunk/urban fantasy and I’m pleasantly surprised with the experience. The mixture of a historical setting and creative fanciful inventions are intriguing. While this isn’t a romance [...]
Gwen’s review of Iced (Dani O’Malley, Book 1) by Karen Marie Moning Urban Fantasy published by Delacorte Press 30 Oct 12 Yes. It’s me. I have returned to review this book for Sybil and the other ducks at TGTBTU. Let me open this review by telling you that I’m a huge KMM fan. She’s an [...]
Liviania’s review of Infamous (Chronicles of Nick, Book 3) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Young adult urban fantasy published by St. Martins Griffin 13 Mar 12 Sherrilyn Kenyon may be famous for her Dark-Hunters series, but I don’t think I’ve read more than two books from the series. I have, on the other hand, been following and [...]
Liviania’s review of A Perfect Blood (The Hollows, Book 10) by Kim Harrison Urban Fantasy published by Harper Voyager 21 Feb 12 Pale Demon injected life into the Hollows series. It was tense, sexy, and all about the characters. A Perfect Blood has a lot to live up to. And it does have a promising [...]
Ash’s review of Shaedes of Gray by Amanda Bonilla Urban fantasy published by Signet Eclipse 06 Dec 11 I think maybe I am getting burnt out on paranormals because I feel like I never have anything new to say. I like Shaedes of Gray, but it doesn’t blow me away. With so many books out [...]
Ash’s review of Bloodlust (Nightshade Series, Book 2) by Michelle Rowen Urban fantasy published by Berkley Sensation 05 Jul 11 I really enjoy this series and I am happy to say that Michelle Rowen has left me feeling happy and satisfied with how it ends. Declan is always going to be a favorite of mine.
Liviania’s review of Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, Book 5) by Ilona Andrews Urban Fantasy published by Ace 31 May 11 Magic Bleeds is an almost perfect urban fantasy novel, so husband and wife team Ilona Andrews have a lot to live up to in Magic Slays. But while Magic Slays falls short of its predecessor, [...]
Liviania’s review of Serpent’s Storm (Calliope Reaper-Jones, Book 3) by Amber Benson Urban fantasy published by Ace 22 Feb 11 Serpent’s Storm is one of two books I’ve read recently that I loved aside from one element. Amber Benson (yes, Tara of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has been improving with each book in the Calliope [...]
Liviania’s review of Twisted (Intertwined, Book 3) by Gena Showalter Urban fantasy published by Harlequin Teen 30 Aug 11 Gena Showalter’s Intertwined series has never been light and fluffy, but Twisted takes some dark turns. This isn’t too surprising considering Unraveled ended shortly after Aden, the hero, got stabbed through the heart.
Ash’s review of Death’s Sweet Embrace (Dark Brethren, Book 3) by Tracey O’Hara Urban Fantasy published by Harper Voyager 25 Jan 11 To be honest, I don’t remember much of the first book. It’s been awhile and the details have just escaped me. I couldn’t remember the world or the characters. Luckily this one also [...]
Ash’s review of Afterlight (The Dark Ink Chronicles, Book 1) by Elle Jasper Urban Fantasy published by Signet Eclipse 02 Nov 10 Afterlight is a pretty average addition to the urban fantasy genre. It’s good enough to hold my interest, but there are more than a few things that stand out and make me roll [...]
Liviania’s review of Secrets of the Demon (Demon Summoner, Book 3) by Diana Rowland Urban Fantasy published by DAW 4 Jan 11 One of Sybil’s life goals is to convince me to read series out of order. Sometimes I give in; sometimes I don’t. It’s hard to resist when she hands me something like Diana [...]
Liviania’s review of Hellforged (Deadtown, Book 2) by Nancy Holzner Urban Fantasy published by Ace 28 Dec 10 Hellforged does not start immediately after Deadtown, there’s little downtime between the two books. Vicky may have just banished a demon, but that doesn’t mean her work is over. She’s just created new problems for herself to [...]
Liviania’s review of Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin, Book 4) by Jennifer Estep Urban Fantasy published by Pocket 26 Apr 11 I can’t decide if Jennifer Estep is spinning her wheels with Tangled Threads or not. If it were a standalone novel, I would love it. As it is, I feel like very few of the [...]
