aka “Roadhouse Apocalypse” meets “Paternus” which sounds like a much cooler premise than its execution. It’s hard to pinpoint just exactly why this book didn’t work for me. Ghost-busting bikers and cowboys battling Lucifer’s demons should be so much more fun than this is. The dialogue was forced and the explanations behind everything were far too convoluted and unnecessary. It took a long time before any action kicked in, and when it finally did, it wasn’t worth the wait. ...more

Review copy was received from Publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
 
I was sent Life and Limb by the publisher in print, then requested the eARC since that is easier for me to read. The blurb noted it as a modern western fantasy series. I liked the sound of it and the mythology.  However, it wasn't clear to me that it is about angels versus demons with religious connotations.

A new series

I have loved the writing of Jennifer Roberson for quite some time. I read the first Cheysuli and the first Tiger and Dell book years ago. She was one of the first authors I got hooked on, along with McCaffrey and Lackey. I love how she fleshes out characters and draws you into her world. This book is no exception. This is her first urban fantasy novel and I am not disappointed! Gabe and Remi are 2 strangers who discover that they are not quite human and meant to be warriors in the u

A biker and a cowboy enter a bar….and their lives are changed forever.

Life and Limb is a pretty good read! This story contains mythical creatures and folklore tales. Add in angels and demons and it’s a party! The beginning of the story was a little hard to get through. You’re bombarded with information and it seemed like it struggled to find it’s footing. Once you get past that, the story is quite entertaining. The banter between the two main characters was humorous and fun. Loved it! I liked h

I like action-packed books and this is action-packed. There were a few things that made me question why the characters did what they did, you don't get any details because it would give away spoilers, but the premise of the book was interesting and kept me wondering what will happen next--that alone makes it an entertaining read for me. I'm not sure I'll read it again, but I am considering picking up the second book when it comes out.
Warning: it ends with a heavy cliff hanger, which is one reas

Not Like Supernatural!

Jennifer Roberson’s first urban fantasy novel is a winner. With characters as varied as the Irish goddess of battles, an Igbo volcano god, a seraph named Grandad, and two relatively innocent young men, Gabriel and Remiel, who aren’t exactly angels, but aren’t human exactly either, this story runs headlong through the Arizona desert. This is a great start to a new series, and I am very much looking forward to the next one.
