Blood and Iron (Promethean Age, #1)
I couldn't get involved. Too much backstory. Too many competing mythologies. Fae, werewolves, Arthurian legend, talking trees, oblique references to e...more

Hexed (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #2)
Wish fulfillment fantasy. Pretty well done, though so self-consciously modern-geeky that it threw me out of the book at times. Atticus doesn't feel li...more

The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1)
Nice to see Riordan have a female protagonist, though she still plays second fiddle in many ways to her brother.

The book on the whole felt a bit long...more

The Forgotten
3.5 stars.

Good plotting and pacing, good atmosphere, some weak characterization and the dialog is pretty bad most of the time, but that felt like "new...more

Full Moon Rising (Riley Jenson Guardian, #1)
So not my style of book.

I need to stop picking books up just because they are available from the library with no waiting. There may be a reason there...more

Heat Stroke (Weather Warden, #2)
It's all right and if I get desperate for a quick read I'll pick up the next in the series, but I don't feel any particular urge.

Iron Kissed (Mercy Thompson, #3)
In a way, I should hate this book. I am sick up to here (imagine a hand waving high above my head) with the idea of women enjoying or falling in love...more

Succubus on Top (Georgina Kincaid, #2)
I don't generally like much sex in books, so... why in the world did I read a book with this title? Craziness.

Hammered (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #3)
More depth or at least emotional connection than the previous two books, thank goodness.

I didn't like a different book by this author, but hope springs eternal.

Sounds rather awful, but descriptions can be deceptive I guess.

Greywalker (Greywalker, #1)
A little confusing at times, but I think that just mirrors the heroine's confusion. Real consequences to the main character for what's happening to he...more

Magic Burns (Kate Daniels, #2)
Really entertaining urban fantasy, with a magic world that is interesting and at least somewhat coherent and real heart. Very much enjoyed.

The Initiation (The Secret Circle, #1)
The description is awesomely hilarious.

Bone Song (Tristopolis, #1)
I think it's urban fantasy. Uncertain.

Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels, #3)
I really enjoy this series and the voice of Andrews's heroine, Kate. She's powerful, so powerful she doesn't know her own limits, but she's also a sel...more

Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, #4)
Almost a 3 star rating.

I just hate supernatural romance. I guess that's the long and short of it. Basically, any parts of this book that dealt with re...more

Urban Shaman  (Walker Papers, #1)
As the beginning of a series, it might have potential. But the book always felt like it was getting away from the author. Events weren't tied together...more

On the Edge (The Edge, #1)
If I had reviewed this after the first 40 pages, it would have been 1 star with a snotty comment about Andrews reading too many bad romance novels. Th...more

Changes (The Dresden Files, #12)
There's a ridiculous amount of "unstoppable" power in this book, and that, honestly, just feels goofy. But I do like these characters, especially Mous...more

I don't know why urban fantasy has to be a wasteland of bad relationship drama. This series has had its share, but it tends to avoid some of that. Wel...more

Kitty Takes a Holiday (Kitty Norville, #3)
Most series seem to get worse as time goes by. This one seems to be getting better--less silly rather than more. Enjoyed.
