Waylaid by Kim Harrison is a fun smash-up of Rachelle Morgan of the Hollows and Peri Reed of the Drifters. Harrison calls it a fan fiction and this short delivered a fun, quick read for fans of the series.
Creeptastic is the first thought that comes to mind when thinking about The Visitor, the latest novel in Amanda Stevens’ urban fantasy series the Graveyard Queen. The Visitor was impressive from the spine tingling mystery to developments in the overall ARC. Stevens sent chills down my spine as she drew me into the world of Amelia Gray.
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.
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.
Sweep In Peace by Ilona Andrews is the second book in the Innkeeper Chronicles. While the eBook released earlier I held out for the audio. Renée Raudman narrates and I just love the added element she brings to their stories. Sweep in Peace was intense and at times dark, but Andrews sprinkled it with a touch of humor. The listen was addictive and one that kept me up into the wee hours.
I was excited to read the novella Wickedly Ever After by Deborah Blake. It is book 2.5 in the Baba Yaga urban fantasy series and features Barbara Yager from book one, Wickedly Dangerous. Seeking the Queen’s approval to wed Sheriff Liam McClellan they travel to the Otherworld and the tale that unfolded quickly drew me in.
