Review: Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

I am in the middle of one of the worst reading slumps I can remember. This all started after finishing Slam Dunk, which kept me on the edge of my seat for 31 incredible volumes. Then I read the final, glorious volume in the Kate Daniels series, and now nothing can hold my attention. Well, nothing except audio versions of Kate Daniels. Thought I’d start the series from the beginning, and see what I missed the first time around.

After the fierce battle in the Forest of the Witches, Vanessa is released by her mother. The Queen then gives up a magic stone, as well as an info dump about the Eye of the Midnight Sun, some powerful elves who were obliterated from the face of the planet, and shares with Asta a rumor about his anti-magic swords. Then the gang goes back to headquarters, triumphant from their mission. Not bad for a day’s work!

Manga Review: Black Clover V 11 by Yuki Tabata @shonenjump @vizmedia


May Contain Spoilers

It’s been so long since I read a volume of Black Clover that I: a – forgot what was going on, and b – forgot how much fun this series is. And that is the problem with reading a series that is still being published. You catch up with it, carry on with life, and before you know it, you’ve fallen behind and it’s fallen off of your radar. I’m going to try to not let that happen again with this one.

Kate went out with a bang! I am kind of sad we aren’t going to get to read about how this new world is going to be. At least we have some Hugh books to look forward to. I am hoping that maybe Conlan will make a debut in them because I feel like his story was not wrapped up for me.  Read more

You will want to read this book before Kate 10. I read that somewhere.

Hey! Its been a while, between being a human cafeteria for a newborn, and all the dirty diapers, its really hard to make time to read, let alone write a review. The little guy doesn’t like to sleep for more than 30 minutes during the day.

Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews


May Contain Spoilers

Oh boy, where to start. As the final book in the Kate Daniels series, Magic Triumphs is everything I hoped it would be. It ties up the main storylines satisfactorily, settles Kate’s daddy issues in a clever way, and leaves an opening for more adventures with supporting characters. I really enjoyed this, and can’t think of a better way to draw the series to an end.

Review: Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews

May Contain Spoilers

While I was excited for the release of Iron and Magic, I was extremely skeptical that Hugh could ever achieve a believable redemption. This guy has been awful for almost the entirety of the Kate Daniels series. He almost starved Christopher to death and left him in a cage of his own filth, he had a favorite character murdered, and he whisked Kate away to Mishmar, where she almost died. He cheerfully invaded cities, ordering the murder of the citizens, and did many other unsavory, non-heroic acts. How then, could this rotten to the core guy be redeemed?

Review: Stray Magic by Kelly Meding


May Contain Spoilers

I am forever in search of new Urban Fantasy to read, so when I saw Stray Magic, I decided to give it a shot. Kelly Meding is a new to me author, and I am always game for the start of a new series. This looked interesting, and I thought that Shiloh being a Federal Marshall in the Paranormal Investigations Unit could be fun. I’m always up for a good case to crack, especially if it involves missing vampires and werewolves.
