  • Tainted Blood by M. L. Brennan Review of Tainted Blood by M. L. Brennan

    Tainted Blood is the third book in M. L. Brennan’s Generation V series. The first book, Generation V, was one of the best (if not the best) first books in an urban fantasy series I’ve read, and I was quite surprised by just how fond of the characters I’d become by the time I finished reading it. Iron Night, the second book, was even better, and despite a slower start than the others, Tainted Blood was also quite entertaining. I’m […]

  • Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs Giveaway: Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs

    Today I am giving away two copies of Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs! This is the first novel in the Alpha and Omega series, which was introduced with “Alpha and Omega” in the anthology On the Prowl. Cry Wolf is followed by Hunting Ground and Fair Game with the fourth book, Dead Heat, releasing next week. Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors of urban fantasy because of her wonderful series—and character!—Mercy Thompson, and Alpha and Omega is set […]

  • The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker Guest Review of The Golem and The Jinni by Helene Wecker

    (Note: Hi! I’m John. Not Kristen. Sorry. I used to contribute to this site a while ago, but then grad school happened. And then grad school happened again. Now they’ve run out of degrees to give me, so I’m back to having some time to write here! It probably won’t be very often, but I’ll pop in from time to time.) The Golem and the Jinni is a melting pot-era urban fantasy released in 2013 and Helene Wecker’s debut novel, […]

  • Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews Review of Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews

    Magic Breaks is the seventh book in the Kate Daniels series by #1 New York Times bestselling author(s) Ilona Andrews (Ilona Andrews is not a single person but a married couple). Right now, a total of 10 books in the series is planned, and there is currently another related novel about Kate’s best friend Andrea (Gunmetal Magic) as well as a variety of novellas and short stories. Magic Breaks is the first of these books to be released in hardcover, […]

  • Iron Night by M.L. Brennan Review of Iron Night by M. L. Brennan

    Iron Night is the second book about Fortitude Scott, following M. L. Brennan’s debut Generation V. A third book, Tainted Blood, is scheduled for release in November 2014—and I, for one, cannot wait since I’ve decided these books need to be added to my list of favorite urban fantasy series along with Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews, Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs, and October Daye by Seanan McGuire. I loved both Generation V and Iron Night. Fort has always tried […]

  • Generation V by M. L. Brennan Review of Generation V by M.L. Brennan

    M.L. Brennan’s debut, Generation V, is the first novel about Fortitude Scott. The second book, Iron Night, was released earlier this month, and there will be at least one more book in the series after that one. Fortitude Scott is a young, low level vampire nearly indistinguishable from humans: he has to drink blood every once in awhile, but he doesn’t yet have fangs, an aversion to daylight, the ability to heal, or great strength. That’s fine with him since […]
