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. Part of my love comes from national pride: both Armstrong and her main character Elena Michaels are Canadian and it’s always nice to find the familiar […]

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 […]

Book Review: The Remortal by Ramsey Isler

The Remortal by Ramsey Isler Immortality is boring. This is one of the aspects of stories about immortality that I enjoy, but not many of the stories I’ve read deal with this. Or rather, they don’t focus on the desire of an immortal to move on. I was attracted to The Remortal specifically because this […]

Book Review: Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines This was a book I had high hopes for, ever since finding out what it was about. At some point in our childhoods, I’m sure all of us bibliophiles have wished that the worlds in our favorite books were real, and wondered what it would be like to interact with […]

Book Review: The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig

The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig Okay, my first thought after reading this book: Chuck Wendig is awesome! Then, my second thought: Why on earth haven’t I heard about or read anything from this author before now? So, my thanks to Angry Robot for rectifying this, by providing me with an e-ARC of The Blue Blazes […]

Audiobook Review: Fool Moon by Jim Butcher

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher I’m not much of an audiobook person, but I need to do something with this Audible account. After unsuccessfully trying to listen to N.K. Jemisin’s The Killing Moon, due to not caring for the narrator’s voice, I decided to give Jim Butcher’s Fool Moon a chance. It’s narrated by James […]

Archive Book Review: Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines

Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines My rating: 3 of 5 stars Libriomancers have the ability to “pull” things such as objects and even people/animals (albeit, it’s a bit dangerous to pull anything other than objects from the books) from books. Isaac is a libriomancer who has been delegated to a librarian job after something went […]

Book Review: Bloodshot by Cherie Priest

Bloodshot by Cherie Priest Aside from the overindulgence in semi-colons and “And” at the beginning of sentences, this was a fun read. The plot is a bit predictable and leaping from time to time, but the main character is interesting enough to keep me reading. Her neurosis goes overboard from time to time, but usually […]

Book Review: Hexed by Kevin Hearne

Atticus O’Sullivan lives an interesting life. On the surface, he’s an ordinary young man, making his living as a New Age book store/tea shop owner in Tempe, Arizona. In actuality, Atticus is a 2100-year-old druid, the last of his kind. Just weeks after his harrowing run-in with an ancient Celtic god who was trying to […]

Book Review: Hounded by Kevin Hearne

On the surface, everything about Atticus O’Sullivan appears ordinary. Early 20s, good-looking, and living in Tempe, Arizona, he shares his house with his Irish Wolfhound Oberon, bikes to work and runs a New Age bookstore/tea shop. No one suspects that Atticus is actually a 2100-year-old druid, the last of his kind. The truth is, he […]
