Quickie Reviews

It’s that time again to round up all the books I’ve read but not reviewed. These are a mix of readathon reads and books I picked up for challenges and didn’t feel compelled to write full reviews for. Links go to Goodreads for more information….

Fantasy

Ink and Bone

Imagine a world where the Great Library of Alexandria still stands and Gutenberg’s press was suppressed leaving the great institution as the gatekeeper of the written word. That’s where Rachel Caine’s Great Library series is set. Oh and England is at war with Wales. There…

Fantasy

Devil’s Due

Devil’s Due is the sequel to Devil’s Bargain and therefore this review may contain spoilers for the previous book. Ben McCarthy is getting out of prison and Lucia Garza is there to welcome him…and offer him a job. The private investigation firm she and her…

Glass Houses

Claire is only sixteen but she’s clever and has been accelerated in school twice so she’s heading off to university early. Whilst she got accepted to several top schools, her parents think she’s too young to go out of state so she has to go…

Fantasy

Windfall + Firestorm

Since I got back from my holiday, I’ve really struggled to concentrate on reading (is that a symptom of jetlag?) so I returned to the Weather Warden series for a bit of light entertainment. Those of you not familiar with Rachel Caine’s other urban fantasy…

Fantasy

Ill Wind / Heat Stroke

I’ve treated my self to a weekend of guilty pleasure reads, first with the latest Karen Chance and then by starting a new urban fantasy series, Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden books. Joanne Baldwin (nice normal name for a change) is a weather warden, someone who…
