Review: Rise of the Iliri Series by Auryn Hadley

BloodLust (Book 1) This story that blends science-fiction and fantasy elements to create a world with unique characteristics immediately sucked me in. Though it’s advertised as a fantasy epic, all the “fantastical” tropes can be traced back to a very science-fiction origin, in which humans do what they do best: Sweep in and take overContinue reading “Review: Rise of the Iliri Series by Auryn Hadley”

Con Report: Capclave 2020

The world we live in continues to be absolutely bonkers, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a lovely Saturday of conversing with fellow authors about world-building and the fantasy genre as part of Capclave 2020. Alas, both panels were via Zoom from the comfort of my home office, so I’m still in hardcore withdrawalContinue reading “Con Report: Capclave 2020”

Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper

Having previously only read serial novellas by this author, I was delighted when she announced a stand-alone novel-length project. This book contains all of the elements that I have come to love this author for, such as satisfying paranormal romance arcs featuring unique and fantastical characters. Draper is still one of the few “reverse harem”Continue reading “Review: Clockwork Dragon by Kaye Draper”

Review: On the Subject of Griffons by Lindsey Byrd

Disclaimer: I am an acquaintance of the author; however, I purchased this ebook for the full price. The only pseudo-complaint I have about this novel is that it could have been a tiny bit shorter. However, shortening the text would have involved cutting much of the hero’s internal narrative, which is a delightful mixture ofContinue reading “Review: On the Subject of Griffons by Lindsey Byrd”

Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 3.5 Diamond Fire. Read my review of Hidden Legacy Book 4, Sapphire Flames. At one point, while enjoyingContinue reading “Review: Emerald Blaze (Hidden Legacy #5) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez

By the time I could read this graphic novel, which collects the first five issues of The Old Guard, I’d already seen the movie on Netflix twice. If you followed me on social media last August, you know I was pretty obsessed. So, it’s difficult for me to talk about the graphic novel in isolation,Continue reading “Review: The Old Guard #1: Opening Fire by Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernandez”

Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

I was delighted to return to the world of Widdershins, eight years beyond the original series, and check in on my favorite fictional town. The librarians of the Ladysmith Museum were always a source of amused befuddlement for me during the original series, so I was excited that one of those librarians was a heroContinue reading “Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin

Spellbound (Book 1) Paranormal queer romance in early twentieth-century New York City seems to be a trope I’m particularly fond of, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this book when at least two authors I follow raved about it on Twitter. The story itself did not disappoint in any measure, from the romance to theContinue reading “Review: Magic in Manhattan Series by Allie Therin”
