I am continuing the attack on my backlist and devouring urban fantasy. Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher is the eighth novel in the wickedly wonderful Harry Dresden urban fantasy series.
I love Necromancers..creepy right? Well, I love stories involving them. In Dead Beat, Harry Dresden battles them. He even raises some trouble of his own! I devoured this on audio and loved everything from the characters to the intense plot.
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.
