I’ve long been a fan of Nicole Givens Kurtz’s Weird Western short stories and her Cybil Lewis sci-fi private eye novels, but this is the first fantasy novel by her that I’ve read. I found it to be fast-paced and exhilarating, set in a richly-developed world of magic, goddesses, soul-stealing orbs, exciting swordfights, undead villains, and complex romance. I’m looking forward to going back and reading the first novel in this series, The Soul Cages, and I hope the author will grace us with a thir ...more

Oh, man. The past few books I’ve read, Harkworth Hall and Anarchy, have made good on delivering some aspects of diversity. I’m very happy to announce that Devourer does so as well, and the author makes sure there’s no misinterpreting that fact.

Kurtz weaves a fantastical tale with complex characters set on an intriguing, forbidden planet. Akub is a bad dudette. That’s why they call her The Devourer. She comes to the ice planet to steal the queen’s soul, which is kind of a jerk move. But it’s her destiny, so, you know. Go fig.

Zykeiah is like Nope, though. She’s not having it and intends to stop Akub. But Akub’s situation seems to be a little more complex than it appears.

This is a fun, fast-paced read with magic, prophecies, and all th
