Did you ever start a book and know within moments that you were going to become swept up in the characters and world? This is what happened with Cold Burn of Magic the first in Jenifer Estep’s new Black Blade urban fantasy series. I devoured this tale, found a new author to love and added another urban fantasy to my must read list.
I have read Diana Rowland’s books before and enjoyed them, so I have no idea why I waited so long to begin the White Trash Zombie series. I finally decided enough was enough and snagged the audio version of My Life as a White Trash Zombie. At just under nine hours, this was hilarious on audio. Rowland weaves humor and a little mystery as our protagonist discovers she is a zombie. BRAINS!!!!
Claimed is the second book in the Servants of Fate series by Sarah Fine. Claimed is an adult urban fantasy that is heavy on romance and laced with suspense and action making it perfect for an audio listen. From the world to the attacks on Galena Margolis, Claimed grabbed me and never let go.
Clean Sweep by writing duo Ilona Andrews is the first in the Innkeeper Chronicles series and once again, I chose to listen with narrator Renee Raudman. A cross between science fiction and urban fantasy Clean Sweep was an absolute blast on audio.
Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish, is the first novel in the urban fantasy series The Adventures of Owl. Mythology, vampires, dragons, demons, elves and more combined with a spunky thief as our heroine had this novel providing one heck of a ride.
Vision in Silver is the third book in Anne Bishop’s Other series. I love this series so hard it may be classified as extreme fangirling. I own the series is every format. Generally I listen to the audio version first and then read it. I have listened to the first two books twice and read them once. This is unprecedented as I am not generally one who does re-reads outside of a few classics. If you have not read/listened to this series, you are missing out.
I enjoyed the first two books, but Fair Game by Patricia Briggs hooked me and I know without a doubt that I will continue the Alpha & Omega series. Filled with danger, humor and character development I love this world. Our little bunny is turning into one heck of an Omega.
