Whoa nelly, Blood Rites proved to be a hilarious, action-packed and revealing tale as Harry takes on a case as a favor to Thomas, but something else is going on. Harry is determined to get to the bottom of it. It felt good to slip back into the world of Harry Dresden.
The Crossbreed series is brilliant from characters who make me feel to the suspenseful cases that keep me listening into the wee hours. Nevermore made me laugh, made me angry and had me plotting the demise of a vampire. It also made me smile, weep and swoon.
Do you have a favorite series? Ya know the one where EVERY DANG THING stops on release day and you consume the newest release only to suffer a book hangover and cry because you have to wait another year for the next book? A series you quote, whose fandom you belong to? Yes, I am a card carrying GRIMLET!
Kristi Charish has become a go-to author for me for urban fantasy and quirky female protagonists. Lipstick Voodoo is the second novel in the Kincaid Strange series. The story takes place in Seattle and features a Voodoo practitioner with a ghostly sidekick.
The Guardian by Sarah Fine is the second novel in the Immortal Dealers, urban fantasy series. With a clever plot and fun magical world filled with cards, summoning creatures and more I quickly slipped back in thanks to the narrations of Carly Robins.
Death Knell by Hailey Edwards is the third book in the urban fantasy series Foundling. Luce Boudreau and her coterie team up with the mysterious Adam Wu as they investigate a series of bodies washing ashore along the Mississippi River. It seems Death is sending her sister a message. Can she and her team stop an apocalypse and what other danger is out there for her and her team?
Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews is a novella in their Hidden Legacy series and while I can’t hide my disappointment that this was only a novella I will tell you this was amazing! Despite the page count the Andrews delivered a full story filled with a mystery, snark and glimmers of what is to come as Rogan takes Nevada home to meet Momma.
