'Myths & Magic: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection' is a box set by various authors.
Kin Selection by L.B. Gilbert is the book I am reviewing. This is the story of Denise Hammond and Yogi Kane.
Denise and her group save Chimps and such for animal testing as such and on one of those missions she see a wolf cub who she can't help but take with her. Since the chimps have places they can ship them to save their lives they have no such place for a wolf cub so she takes him. But Denise soon learns he is also a baby.
Yogi has been asked to find a baby / cub named Oliver from the rival Avery's Pack. Oliver's father past awhile back and now the mother and Oliver a missing. Yogi finds the mother has died and Oliver missing but it doesn't take him long to find the baby with Denise. Yogi kidnaps her and the baby and takes them back with him.
I enjoyed their story!

Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Dreams of Gods & Monsters - Laini Taylor

Dreams of Gods & Monsters is the last of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy and I am so sad to see it end. This has been a wild ride with a beautiful cast of characters and a thought-provoking story that held me from beginning to end. Despite the length of these books, they were all fairly quick reads because I just couldn't put them down.

 

This book was full of adventure and intrigue, suspense and twists, and I loved it! The mythology of this series takes humans, demons, and angels and changes your perception of them. What does it mean to be good or evil? How does one person or thing become evil? Are those thought to be evil truly bad, or is it just one's perspective? These are all questions that this book, and the series, makes you ask yourself.

 

I felt like this book was the most emotional of the series. It tore my heart to shreds more than once, and built it right back up. The imagery and the characters are so vivid that it was impossible not to put myself in the middle of the story with them, feeling their pain, their angst, their joy, their sadness. So delicious!

Days of Blood & Starlight
Days of Blood & Starlight - Laini Taylor

I truly love this series!  The characters are fantastic and the story is thoroughly engrossing.  The world of this series is a wonderful blend of the real and the imagined and they fit together seamlessly.

 

The cast of characters expands in this series and they are all beautifully developed.  But Akiva and Karou were completely at odds with one another in this book and that was hard as a shipper of that relationship.  But that only made the story that much more of an engrossing read.

 

I love that this series takes the commonly held ideas of religious mythology and what it means to be good or evil and then turns them around.  Karou and her people are chimera, what most would consider to be demons.  Akiva is an angel, but many of his kind are far from the peace-loving angels that most of us imagine.  The story is told primarily from the point of view of Karou, making you really look at how perspective changes perception.

 

At it's heart, the story is about two enemies coming together for a common goal, a common mission, a common future.  It is imaginative, exciting, and beautifully written!

Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Daughter of Smoke & Bone - Laini Taylor

I closed the book after the final page and wondered to myself... why did I wait so long to read this book?  The story, the characters, the writing... all of them were so enchanting and engrossing.  Everything about this book was magical!

 

Set in the city of Prague, Karou lives alone in a flat and attends art school.  Her sketchbooks are filled with fantastical drawings that her best friend and fellow students yearn to see.  But she has secrets, secrets that not even her best friend knows.  And as many secrets as she herself keeps, there are secrets kept from her, too.  The kind of secrets that change everything.  These secrets also make the feelings she comes to have for Akiva even more tumultuous and chaotic.

 

The author's writing is beautiful, as is her world building.  It was like reading a fairy tale with its lyrical prose.  The mythos of the angels is very different from the traditional Christian conception that most of us are familiar with.  And even more interesting is that these angels are generally on the "evil" side of the "good versus evil" construct.  But the insights into the world of the angels through Akiva make one thing very clear... there are two perspectives to be had for each and every situation.

 

This is a story of love and coming together, but it is also a world about perceptions and fighting for what you believe in.  It's about the struggle that comes from within and without when your ideology bucks against that which is expected.  It is, simply put, beautiful.

ARC Review: A Case of Magic
A Case of Magic: An Urban Fantasy Novel ... A Case of Magic: An Urban Fantasy Novel (The Wildes Chronicles Book 1) - Dominika Waclawiak
I received an ARC to give an honest review
 
I think I am going to like this series by this author. She is very new to me and I found her though subscribing through to her newsletters. Her other books sounded like they would be right up my alley so when I saw she wrote this one I was wondering where it was going to go.
 
I was not disappointed. We are introduced to P.I, Mabry who likes to fly under the radar and do her job. When Mabry is stopped by two vampires this starts her journey of finding herself in certain situations and getting answers to what happened to her friends, and others. While trying to solve what is going on she starts to uncover more of her fae powers than before. Though she is still in the dark what her powers will do it does seem to help her in her time of need. Who can she truly trust through this all that is the question.
I am excited to see this series play out as we leave off with a cliffhanger. Can't wait to read book two and find out more about this resistance and if Mabry will stop those that are in power.
