An Interview with M.L. Brennan, Author of Generation V

These days, books find their way onto my to-read list for any number of different reasons, but I like to think that coming upon Generation V was somewhat of a serendipitous fortune. M.L. Brennan was a name I first came across when I followed a few random links in my Twitter feed and came upon […]

Audiobook Review: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman This is the third Neil Gaiman book I’ve read and I’ve noticed a trend: An average, unmemorable male protagonist with slightly/over-controlling girlfriend/recently turned fiancé crosses paths with an unusual human that turns out to be magical and leads the protagonist into a whole new world of magic that has always been […]

Review Bites: DNF

Audiobook Review: Turn Coat by Jim Butcher

Turn Coat by Jim Butcher I seem to have developed a habit of reading the first book in a series then skipping a whole bunch to read from the series again. It worked well for me with Star Wars: A New Jedi Order and I can’t complain about my recent run with The Dresden Files. […]

Werewolves on SPACE

Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaesl Bitten was my first real introduction to urban fantasy and supernatural books. I fell in love with Kelley Armstrong‘s Women of the Otherworld series.

Book Review: Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch

Whispers Under Ground by Ben Aaronovitch Wow, never have I snapped up and read all the currently available books in a series so quickly. With my enthusiasm waning for Harry Dresden in light of the new direction the Dresden Files series has taken in the last few books, someone else has recently dethroned him as […]
