Guest Review: Melusine

Recently, Ana and Thea of The Book Smugglers asked me to participate in one of their features, the guest dare. Every month they dare someone to read and review a book they may not read otherwise (which is a fabulous idea and a lot of fun!). So today I’m over at their blog with a review of Dead Witch Walking, the first book in one of Thea’s favorite urban fantasy series, The Hollows by Kim Harrison. In return, I dared […]

Monette and Bear to Write Sequels to A Companion to Wolves

Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette have sold two sequels to their wonderful novel A Companion to Wolves! I actually had missed that piece of news until I read a review of the book over at Adventures in Reading today. According to the post on Bear’s Livejournal, the next two books are tentatively named An Apprentice of Elves and A Reckoning of Men. Since I loved the first book, I cannot wait to read the rest and am thrilled that they […]

Review of A Companion to Wolves

A Companion to Wolvesby Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette304pp (Hardcover)My Rating: 8/10Amazon Rating: 4/5LibraryThing Rating: 4.24/5Good Reads Rating: 3.51/5 A Companion to Wolves is a stand alone collaboration by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear. Sarah Monette’s “The Doctrine of Labyrinth” series is currently my favorite book discovery of this year, and Elizabeth Bear’s dark mythological tale of faerie, Blood and Iron, was also excellent so I was very much looking forward to this book. Although I did not enjoy it […]

Review of The Mirador

The Miradorby Sarah Monette432pp (Hardcover)My Rating: 9/10Amazon Rating: 4.5/5LibraryThing Rating: 4.22/5Good Reads Rating: 3.92/5 To my great chagrin, The Mirador, the third book in Sarah Monette’s The Doctrine of Labyrinth series, is the last book in the series currently available. The fourth and final book Corambis has a projected publication date of sometime in 2009. The first two books in the series wrapped up a complete story arc and this novel takes place approximately two years after the end of […]
