I have had a terrible month in real life this month. I’m just glad that I had a massive bank of already written reviews. Key word: had. April I’m probably going to be going to two or three reviews a week instead of 5!

Advanced Review: The Last Human by Zack Jordan

Mini Review: The setup about Humans being deemed dangerous and kill on sight was interesting, but the younger lead caught me off guard and I ended up not enjoying it as much as I would have with an adult lead.

Advanced Review: The Queen’s Bargain by Anne Bishop (The Black Jewels #10)

Mini Review: I cried. And cried. And cried some more. Sets up a second arc in the Black Jewels series, and I enjoyed it more than I expected.

Advanced Review: Bonds of Brass by Emily Skrutskie (Bloodright Trilogy #1)

Mini Review: Just buy this. It was amazing and I loved everything. The characters are perfect and the story made my jaw drop and it was great.

Advanced Review: The Last Emperox by John Scalzi (The Interdependency #3)

Mini Review: Perfect end to a very fun series. I wasn’t expecting the twists.

New Release: Smoke Bitten by Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson #12)

Mini Review: A great new addition to the series. It was everything I have love about the series.

Series: The Others by Anne Bishop: Etched in Bone, Lake Silence

Mini Review: I love the world of The Others. Etched in Bone was a great ending to the five book arc that was started. Lake Silence should not be read.

Series: Vatta’s War by Elizabeth Moon: Command Decision, Victory Conditions

Mini Review: An explosive end to a decent, fun space opera featuring a head strong, impressively proficient female lead.

Series: Vatta’s Peace by Elizabeth Moon: Cold Welcome, Into the Fire

Mini Review: I have no idea why these books were written. They didn’t really continue the story of Vatta’s War, nor did it really start a new one. It just kind of existed and a lot ofthe time didn’t even make sense.

Series: Page & Sommers by Cat Sebastian: Hither, Page

Mini Review: Not what I typically read, a historical MM romance, but I absolutely adored this quick read with the best main characters and a small town mystery.

Series: Galactic Love by Ann Aguirre: Strange Love

Mini Review: A bonkers, and fun, alien romance with a male lead that isn’t at all human. The tropes weren’t for me but was well written.

Series: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton: Incubus Dreams, Micah

Mini Review: Stop reading before you get here.

Series: Southern Reach by Jeff VanderMeer: Annihilation, Authority

Mini Review: Absolutely bizarre and ultimately not for me but very interesting mystery.
