While I love Urban Fantasy, I don’t often have the opportunity to read much of the genre because so many of the titles currently being released are part of a longer, multi-volume series, or, when a book comes along that I think is interesting, I just don’t have time to fit it into my jam-packed reading schedule. I had seen several positive reviews for Night Owls, so I determined to make the time to read Lauren M Roy’s debut novel. I’m so glad I did! This is such a fun read, and it clicked for me within just the first few pages. I couldn’t put it down and finished it in just a few hours. Read more

[Jenny Brigalow] I’m a mum, a writer, a dreamer, a chocoholic and a hopeless romantic.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Children of the Mist?
[Jenny Brigalow] COTM is a Young Adult paranormal with a strong romantic element. It’s about skater girl Morven Smith who turns sixteen and develops boobs, acute appendicitis and a pair of pointy teeth. Whilst she is stunned by her metamorphosis into vampire, her best mate, the enigmatic Zest, is not. For the young werewolf it’s the answer to a prayer. He’s been alone for a long time. But when fate conspires to push them apart, Zest is filled with dread. In Scotland Morven will discover the truth of an ancient feud. Must the past always repeat itself? And, in the end, can they both survive? Read more

When I was contacted about participating in the blog tour for The Lair, I hesitated. I had tried to read The Farm last summer, but there was so much going on in my life that I had give up and return it to the library. I thought the premise sounded interesting, though, and I love post-apocalyptic reads, so I thought What the heck? Sure, I’ll give it a try. Let me say that The Lair can be read by itself. I was only confused a few times, and the author did a nice job recapping the previous book, without the references feeling awkward or out of place. As someone who hates to read books out of order, or hates starting a series in the middle, I never felt that nagging burst of frustration with The Lair, and I don’t regret reading book two without having first read book one. I guess I should try this more often with longer series that I’m interested in, but that seem too overwhelming to start at the beginning.
