The Empty Grave, Jonathan Stroud
Lockwood & Co., Book Five The Empty Grave - Jonathan Stroud

Much that was predictable, several surprises, anyway, room for more if Stroud ever wants to write it. Much better for getting on with the over-arching story line. Perfect for my mood.

Reading progress update: I've read 15%.- we needed mental candy floss tonight
Love and Other Wild Things - Molly Harper

While our political leaders compete for a Darwin Award in Westminster tonight, my wife and I decided to distract ourselves with mental candy floss. Molly Harper can be depended on for straight forward humour, even more straight forward sex and a dash of the supernatural.

"Minimum Wage Magic - DFZ #1" by Rachel Aaron
Minimum Wage Magic (DFZ Book 1) - Rachel Aaron
A huge smile of a book: clever and original plot, engaging main character and wonderfully narrated.

 

 

"Minimum Wage Magic" is a light-hearted quest-based book set in the Detroit Free Zone (DFZ), an almost lawless, so-magic-it's-alive city built over the ruins of old Detroit. The anything-goes magic-rich DFZ is populated by mages, cybernetically enhanced humans, personal AIs designed to provide emotional support, a few seriously dangerous Gods and more dragons than any other city in the world.

 

We discover the DFZ by following Opal Yong-ae's increasingly desperate struggles to make her next debt payment. Opal used to make good money as a Cleaner, using her skills as a mage and her degree in art history to turn a profit from buying foreclosed apartments from the City and clearing out the magical, and sometimes lethal, the previous occupants left behind.

 

Recently, Opal's luck has not been good. She doesn't have the money she needs to pay her debt and her latest buy turns out to contain nothing but the body of a recently deceased and very secretive mage. To pay her debt she has to uncover the mage's secret and avoid getting killed by the various people who want that secret kept.

 

What follows is a fun, deadline-driven quest to unravel the mystery and turn a profit. Along the way, Opal makes an uneasy alliance with a moody rival. The usual unresolved sexual tension clichés are largely avoided in favour of a humorous odd-couple dynamic where the honest but secretive Opal has to work with her grouchy, semi-luddite. entirely non-magical but more than a little criminal, partner who constantly declares that he is only in it for the money.

 

As Opal falls deeper into danger, we learn the secrets of her past as well as the plans of the dead mage. The plot keeps up a brisk pace with lots of action, great world-building and some interesting and credible characters.

 

This is a feel-good book with an engaging heroine, an interesting puzzle and a whole new world to explore.

 

Although it's set in the same world as the Heartstriker series, which started with "Nice Dragons Finish Last" you can start with this book and not be left feeling you've missed something. 

 

I preferred "Minimum Wage Magic" over "Nice Dragons Come Last" because Opal gave the story a more human and vulnerable perspective and I think the ideas are little more grounded in the realities of the DFZ.

 

I strongly recommend the audiobook version of "Minimum Wage Magic" which is flawlessly performed by  Emily Woo Zeller. Click on the SoundCloud link below to hear a sample of her work.

The shifters are dying
 
And it's up to me to save them
Even if it means going to extremes.
 
As the future alpha,
Duty is the code I live by.
 
And now it’s time to make a choice.
Crossbreed or die.
 
I agreed to the Claiming ceremony,
but under my own terms.
 
With an insatiable hunger,
My raging wolf has ideas of her own.
 
And Five, sexy, dragon mates are what she craves.
All five are delicious and irresistible.
 
Why choose one mate
When all five make me yearn for more?
 
After all, the fate of the race lies in my hands,
And I plan to keep those hands very busy.
 
Blood Moon Magic is the 1st in the Elements of Twilight series. This is a #whychoose style novel. These books have potentially triggering elements and explicit scenes. This book has FMMMM, light MM, BDSM, torture, and dark themes.
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying this is a new author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them.I have to say that although I have read some Reverse Harem books in the past I have never read one in the paranormal gene, but, I am really glad I choose this book to venture there.We really loved that this was a werewolf clan of alpha shifters that were mostly women who were interbreeding with other clans like the dragons and choosing them for their mates.What will there children be like? The Alpha clans are trying to save their clan from extinction and perhaps this is the way.
 
I loved the story from beginning to end and we loved all the characters they were totally awesome .Abby had choosen some smokin hot sexy dragon mates like Shaun,Kaleb,Justin,Marcus,Kaden who were all different and each one of them carried a unique magic element that made them even more special.Marcus had to be my favorite though as he had my mouth watering the entire story with his food porn lol  but, we loved them all.
 
The story had a great plot had tons of drama and a really touching love story.We loved that Abby's men courted her for months and were getting to know her and falling in love and also connecting and bonding with her all the while taking care of her sexual needs without actually having sex. Omg ! their were so many fun sexy scenes that made us laugh out loud.Can you just imagine 5 sexy hot sexy dragons tauting a women's lady parts for months on end ? lol
 
We loved Abby she was known as her Clans Alpha second in command to her mother the head Alpha and she was well loved and respected and had some amazing friends like Chey and Cara who knew to party and have a good time as well as having some really fun girls nights which brought us tons of laughs every time these women got together.
 
The story was one hot read and the chemistry between Abby and her 5 dragons made for some really hot sexy scenes.This story was awesome in our book and really engaging right from the onset of the set of the story and we were still engrossed in it to the very end.We loved the mystery and the magic that the story wrought as well as all the twists and turns the story took and learning that the people all around Abby were betraying her trust time and time again.By the end of the story so many secrets kept coming to light and we were finding out that their is someone or someones that are still out their wanting to hurt Abby and perhaps her clan.Something sinister is definitely in the wind but,time will tell as the story ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and Abby's story is not over just yet and we can't wait to see what happens next.
 
I will say that this new debut author did and amazing job with creating this engrossing tale for us to love and she defiantly made us fall in love with the characters she created for us .
 
A job Well done !
 
Recommended read to all!

I'm Isobelle, a writer from Northern Virginia. I've been reading and writing for as long as I can remember. However, it wasn't until I crossed in that magical world known as my 30's that I shook off the last vestiges of fear and dove head first into my writing career. I started writing in September 2018 and fell in love. I hope you enjoy my stories because I pour a piece of myself into every page. I started this journey as a passion project, and to prove myself right.. Everyone deserves to live out there dreams. When not writing I'm also a fan of cooking, musical theatre and spoiling my dog. I love reverse harem, dark paranormal, urban fantasy and fantasy. I listen to my muse and write what she gives me.
 
My fondest wish is to write for all sorts of different people. I want to be very inclusive in my writing because I feel like there’s a place for that. I think that everybody should be able to pick up a book and find somebody they identify with. I want to write characters that are real, even if they’re in a fantastical world. Which means, touching on subjects that might be disturbing to some, but is a way of life to others. Life isn't all rainbows and lollipops. We have to go through a storm once in a while. That's what makes the reward sweeter!

Reading progress update: I've read 6 out of 547 pages.
Lockwood & Co., Book Five The Empty Grave - Jonathan Stroud

Some heavy handed foreshadowing suggests my guess about the Big Bad is right...is there a twist I don't see coming?
