Review: Flight of Magpies (A Charm of Magpies #3) by K.J. Charles

Flight of MagpiesI found this series right before the previous publishing company it was being published with folded. I was devastated, because it meant waiting months until I could finish the trilogy. Luckily, it was absolutely worth the wait.

The conclusion to this trilogy brought together much of the story and plot elements from the previous books, showing us more of how the society of practitioners works in England, the growing power of the Magpie Lord, and multiple developing relationships. Continue reading

Review: The Omega Objection (San Andreas Shifters #2) by G.L. Carriger

Omega ObjectionI pre-ordered this book, and immediately tore through it as soon as I had a free evening. I do not regret either of these decisions. Returning to the wacky werewolf pack of San Francisco was a delight, especially with the new focus on characters Isaac and Tank.  Continue reading

Review: Wanted, a Gentleman by K.J. Charles

Wanted a GentlemanHappy 500th blog post to me! Thanks for hanging out with me.


I was initially unsure whether I wanted to read this book, despite my previous enjoyment of all of the author’s works. However, a quiet evening at home when I knew I was falling ill demanded comfort reading, and this book was the perfect choice.

This story was a fantastic blend of fast-paced action and quiet, delightful moments between the characters (both sexy and fully clothed). I adored Martin’s character and his very human moral quandaries.  Continue reading

Review: That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston

That Inevitable Victorian ThingLet’s start with the title: I would love to find out the author’s original title for this work, but what is was published under makes no sense and smacks of interference on the part of a publisher’s marketing department (though the cover is absolutely gorgeous).

Which is a shame, because this novel was a delight to read. As a fan of alternate history and the upstairs/downstairs relationships in stories such as Downton Abbey, this book was immediately on my must-read list from the moment I heard about it. It gets bonus points for being a UTOPIAN look at the future, when so much fiction (and so much of the real world) is rather dreary these days.  Continue reading
