Middlegame by Seanan McGuire told from multiple perspectives and those of twins Roger and Dodger blew my mind. Take McGuire’s hand as she takes us to the Impossible City.
Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews is the tenth and final audiobook in the Kate Daniels series. Folks, it was bloody brilliant and everything I dreamed and couldn’t possibly imagine as a befitting ending to this fantastic journey. Andrews wrapped this up with plenty of action, a few twists, humor and undeniable heart.
A beast of an audiobook, A Plague of Giants is the first of the epic Seven Kennings, fantasy series by Kevin Hearne. Narrated by Luke Daniels, I quickly became caught up in this magical tale.
Smoke and Iron by Rachel Caine is the fourth novel in the Great Library series. As addictive as its predecessors. I could not set this down. Jess and his motley crew face their greatest danger yet. Jam packed from begin to end with plots, deception, danger and nail biting suspense. Gads I love this series.
I devoured Scourged by Kevin Hearne, the ninth and final book in the Iron Druid Chronicles within the first 24 hours of its release. Once again, I listened to the brilliant narrations of Luke Daniels. Then, I listened again. As much as I am not ready to say goodbye to this series, Hearne delivered an intense, twisted and heartfelt finale that still left the door open for more stories. (Please let there be more stories.)
RED SISTER by Mark Lawrence intrigued me, and I was thirsty for a dark fantasy featuring a kickass heroine. This is my first experience with Lawerence, and I quickly found myself wanting to savor this character driven tale with its dying world and magic. Fans of GRAVE MERCY and the Fair Assassin’s series will find themselves slipping quickly into this world.
The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin is the third and final book of the Passage trilogy. The wait was long, expectations were high and attempts to savor this last book failed. The City of Mirrors was a brilliant finale to this epic post-apocalyptic fiction. Unique and brilliantly written the dark and light clash for one last battle as our future is determined.
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop is the fourth book in the urban fantasy series The Others. With brilliant world building and unique characters, I devoured this and already I am craving book five. Complex, relevant and captivating Marked in Flesh once again transported me to Thasia.
Last year I listened to and loved The Walled City by Ryan Graudin, and knew that without a doubt I would listen to Wolf by Wolf his newest release. Set in an alternate 1956 where the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. The story that unfolds in Wolf by Wolf was dark, brilliant and extraordinary.
