Audio Review: Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn

May Contain Spoilers

Continuing my exploration of urban fantasy, I borrowed the audio book for Night Myst from the library. I admit that I totally judged The Indigo Court series by the covers. Some of those covers are incredible, and I was hoping I would be knocked out by the books. Night Myst was a mixed bag for me; I liked some aspects of the story, but overall, I found it slow going.

Audio Review: Magic to the Bone by Devon Monk

May Contain Spoilers

Allie Beckstrom works as a Hound, sniffing out illegal magic use for paying customers. Her father is the head of Beckstrom Industries, a company that has made a fortune harnessing magic so the masses can use it – for a price. Allie lives in a crappy, run-down apartment, has about twenty bucks in her pocket, and can’t even afford a cell phone. Still, it’s better than working for her father, whose magical gift is influencing others. All  her life, Allie wasn’t sure if she was making a choice because she wanted to do something, or because her father was compelling her do it.

Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

May contain spoilers

I love this series! Please say there will be more! While I have recently started Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels books, and I enjoy them immensely, there is something about the Hidden Legacy series that makes it stand a tier above Kate (Poo Penny will disagree, but she’s read ALL of Kate, and I’ve only listened to the first two audio books).  Oh, wait! That something is Mad Rogan. He’s all that, and he’s only endeared himself to me more as the series continued. And the world building is fascinating. I love the idea of insanely powerful people, gifted with magical abilities, fighting for dominance over the other magical families. Read more

Audio Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn

May Contain Spoilers

I am on an urban fantasy kick, thanks to Ilona Andrews.  Because I don’t want to get burned out on her writing, I decided to grab a few other longer series that I missed out on. I remember getting a review copy of one of the later Kitty Norville novels, but since I hadn’t read any of the previous books, I set it aside. When I saw that the first installment was available as an audio book at the library, I happily clicked Borrow, and the rest is history.

Early Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Review by Poo Penny

May Contain Spoilers

Dragons. Beasts. Legacies. A teeeeny tiny spoiler, but I don’t think it will ruin anything.
Do I really need to sell this book to you, if you have read Burn for Me and White Hot then you KNOW what to expect, kind of. Except it’s better. It’s more. I just hope that there is another book, or some kind of short story after that epilogue. I need more.
