Series Reviews/Genre Pages Updates:

Epic Fantasy:

The Nevernight Chronicle by Jay Kristoff. 93 points (4 ¾ stars). Mia Covere’s family was killed, and she barely escaped with her life. Now she wishes to join a group of assassins, on a mission of revenge. That isn’t all. In addition to being a rater decent killer, she is capable of talking with shadows. Which is quite something on a world with 3 suns that rarely fully set.

New Release: Night’s Reckoning by Elizabeth Hunter

Mini Review: Oh. My. God. If you haven’t read Elemental Legacy before, do me a favour and read it now. Every book is better than the last.

Series: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton: The Killing Dance, Burnt Offerings, Blue Moon, Obsidian Butterfly

Mini Review: This is around the series starts its downward swing. Anita Blake is less and less focused on the monsters and more and more focused on men and what other people think of her.

Series: Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon by Yasmine Galenorn: Harvest Song, Blood Bonds

Mini Review: It is amazing how steady this series about 3 sisters fighting against evil stayed throughout 21 books. The end was just as I expected it to be.

Mini Review: I really liked this series about The Light vs The Dark, even if I found the ending a bit off.

Series: Foreigner by C.J. Cherryh: Foreigner, Invader, Inheritor

Mini Review: The First Foreigner trilogy cemented my love of the series. About Bren Cameron, a diplomat attached to the aliens they share their planet with in order to prevent another war. So good.

Mini Review: This was an absolutely adorable low stakes story about a woman who just really likes her bread dough.

Standalone: Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang

Mini Review: An absolutely magical tale about a man that magic just seems to follow. Loved it.
