Demon Hunts (Walker Papers #5) by C.E. Murphy (review)

I do love how this series always seems to come up with a rarer fantasy creature or scenario in every book. It’s not the over-done vampire or werewolf (as much as I love both creatures, they seem to pop up everywhere in Urban Fantasy…) I won’t spoil you and tell you what the creature was, but I really liked how the clues were laid out, and the neat twist on the creature itself. An old favorite character of mine appears in this book. I totally squee’d when they appeared, and I’m hoping to get to see a lot more of… Read more »

Walking Dead (Walker Papers #4) by C.E. Murphy (review)

“I sounded so rational, as long as I didn’t listen to what I was actually saying.”   I love the Native American folklore in this series. I also like how shamanism, witchcraft, and other magic things are done. Not everyone believes, and most people manage to make up a version of reality where the ‘strange’ things that happen are easily explained away. Like a graveyard suddenly erupting with zombies (including zombie bugs and rodents!), was just a movie set.

Beauty and the Werewolf (Five Hundred Kingdoms #6) by Mercedes Lackey (review)

The ‘bad guy’ was fairly obvious. The hero/love interest a sweet and bumbling boy who was very earnest and a bit shy at times. And for whom there really isn’t all that much character development. But Bella was worth enough to me to keep reading. I loved how she wasn’t some shrinking flower of a girl. She took as much charge of herself and her destiny as she was able to. She was funny and smart. The invisible servants were something I’ve seen before, but not done in this way. I was fairly sure I knew who was to blame… Read more »

The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms book 1) by Mercedes Lackey (review)

The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms book 1) by Mercedes Lackey (review)

    “You are as ill-mannered, as stubborn, and as stupid as an ass!” she shouted, “So BE one!” While I love this series, I must admit that this first book is fairly slow. It doesn’t really pick up until around page 170 or so. This is mostly due to the fact that a lot has to be explained about how the world and magic works. It is done by following a Godmother Apprentice around and learning things as she learns them. You get introduced to some of the Traditional storylines, such as Cinderella, Rapunzel, The Princess Who Could Not… Read more »
