I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Soul Taken by Patricia Briggs. Some loose threads and some sequel bait but also a tightly plotted and spook mystery with Adam and Mercy working closely together which is definitely my jam.
I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Ruby Fever by Ilona Andrews. Overall I liked it but this book had a lot of heavy lifting to do to wrap up the series so some things felt underdeveloped or hand-waved away. Catalina and Alessandro however? A+
I’m over at AudioGals with a review of Go Hex Yourself by Jessica Clare, narrated by Holly Linneman & Andrew Eiden. Interesting take on magic, good narration, romance a bit of a mixed bag.
I’m over at Dear Author with Sirius. We’re reviewing All Fired Up by Jenn Burke. It’s my favourite in the universe so far.
Monthly Mini Review
Present Tense by Jordan Castillo Price – B At only around 30 pages, this short story is a cute palate-cleanser and another fun entry in The ABCs of Spellcraft series. I don’t expect it will make any sense to those who have not read the earlier stories but for fans of the series (like me) it was a delightful little snippet. There’s no mystery to be solved in this one; it’s a short set at Christmas, focused on the last minute Christmas gift dilemma people who suddenly find out they are expected to give a gift to someone (when they didn’t know beforehand for good reason) and it has the usual quirky whimsical humour of the series. It was cute and sweet and I enjoyed checking in on Dixon and Yuri. It’s only 99c so those who have read the earlier books can pick this one up cheap.
Reviews of these books will be up soon at AudioGals.
