Shadow Silence is the second book in the Whisper Hollow fantasy series by Yasmine Galenorn. While it looks like this is the last book in the series to be published by Berkeley/NAL, Galenorn plans to continue the series and I could not be more thrilled. From the town on Crescent Lake known as Whisper Hollow to the folklore I love this series and its characters.
Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews is the second book in the urban fantasy series The Edge. I have been listening to the series on audio and was eager to return. Two years have passed since the ending of the first book and we get a new couple and tale in this strange land known as the Edge.
Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs is the ninth book in the Mercy Thompson series. I love slipping into these tales and have become attached to the characters within. Fire Touched was a delightful installment and reminded me of earlier books in the series. Plot driven, intense and captivating I devoured every word.
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.
Morning Star by Pierce Brown was a book I approached with trepidation. My love for this series knows no bounds and I worried that the last book would leave me wanting. Pierce Brown delivered in his darkest book to date as he brilliantly shared this thought-provoking tale of war, friendship and love. Morning Star took a piece of my soul and I gave it gladly.
I am continuing my audio listen of the Chicagoland Vampires series and in January, I listened to book two- Friday Night Bites by Chloe Neill narrated by Cynthia Holloway. This urban fantasy series takes place in the Windy City where Merit and the Cadogan House investigate underground feeding parties and spies among their midst.
Of Flame and Promise is the sixth book in Cecy Robson’s Weird Girls series. This is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. Cecy Robson completely draws me into her world and ends up leaving me spent and well sated. Of Flame and Promise delivered humor, intense battles and growing pains, for our girl Taran Wird.
The Highlander’s Curse by Claire Delacroix is the second book in the True Love Brides series, which I have been listening to on audio. Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld this historical medieval romance with its paranormal twist is enchanting. FAE, curses, danger and true loves kiss made The Highlander’s Curse a pleasurable listen.
