ARC Review: “The Midnight Bargain,” by C.L. Polk

I had the very unexpected pleasure of receiving The Midnight Bargain weeks after requesting it, so I dropped my regular TBR to finish this before its release date of October 13. Thank you, Netgalley and Erewhon Books, for this ARC. I finished it in one day, so you know it was engaging, even if I … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Midnight Bargain,” by C.L. Polk

October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

This is probably not comprehensive, or even probably accurate. This month is going to be very hectic for me from some changes in my personal life (more to come, all good things), but man do I want to read everything, particularly fun spooky stuff. October is the month before my birthday, and I live for … Continue reading October TBR (or maybe a wishlist)

Thank you, Netgalley and 47North, for the ARC of Charlie Holmberg's Myths and Mortals.

This is also my first Anthony Ryan book, so my viewpoint may be less biased, if less informed. The Waking Fire, first in the new Draconis Memoria series, had basically everything I want out of a high fantasy epic. … Continue reading Anthony Ryan’s “The Waking Fire:” release date July 5th

Series Review: Barb Hendee’s Mist-Torn Witches

  I have to admit, I have been riding the urban fantasy train a lot more recently. My favorites include Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, and Jim Butcher, to name a few. But I grew up on old time Sword and Sorcerer-esque fantasies, and when I find a good series that stays relevant and fresh, I … Continue reading Series Review: Barb Hendee’s Mist-Torn Witches
