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.

Review: Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence


May Contain Spoilers

I was really excited to get my hands on Grey Sister, and when I finally had an opportunity to sit down and read it, I had mixed results. Again. I love this story when Nona is not at the Convent of Sweet Mercy. Thankfully, a spiteful novice sends Nona packing about 40% of the way through. Then Nona has to rely on her courage, wits, and abilities to keep herself alive in an exceedingly dangerous world. With the ice ever creeping into the Corridor, the tensions between the people of Abeth are at a fever pitch. Competition over land is fierce and deadly. Nona and the Sisters of Mercy are caught up in a plot to shake up the power base in the Empire, and any wrong move can mean their death.
