Great Series Finale
Denai Storm (urban fantasy mystery romance) (Excalibar Investigation Series Book 3) - Tiffany Shand

This final book in the Excalibar Investigations series sees Cate and Jason in more danger than they've seen previously. Denai Bound ended in a whopper of a cliffy with Jason being kidnapped, so of course, this one picks up with Cate's search for him. The troubles keep coming and their bond is at risk with Jason's memory loss, enemies to fight at every turn, and another mystery to solve. As the final battle with Oberoth and Vicus looms, allies come from unexpected places and the the team faces losing someone near and dear. Denai Storm is everything an Urban Fantasy finale should be. It's action packed, gripping, a bit romantic, and full of magic, and that ending was absolutely perfect. It's bittersweet to say goodbye to such great characters, and I look forward to whatever this talented author comes up with next.

Review: The Turn
The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Death - Kim Harrison

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Since The Hollows is one of my favourite urban fantasy series, and probably one the series that got me hooked on urban fantasy in the first place, a prequel to the Hollows was a must have. I put in a Netgalley request as soon as I saw it. (Even though I’m only up to book 7 in the series).

 

Though after reading it, I can’t honestly say I liked it all that much. It was okay, somewhere between a two and a three star read for me. The first half of the book was full of science stuff that I found incredibly boring and a slog to get through. I’ve never DNFed a Kim Harrison book before, so series and author love made me determined to finish it.

 

 I found it quite confusing, it didn’t help also that I could have sworn there was a Trent Kalamak in the Rachel Morgan series. It was only when I was reading reviews on Goodreads and saw the questions about this book section that someone else had asked the same thing that was puzzling me. Not the same character, two different characters (though there was a ding! moment towards the end of the book that made me go aaaah, that’s why).

 

One or two familiar characters also popped up, demon Algaliarept (who’s name I can’t pronounce to save my life) was his usual delightfully obnoxious (and somewhat amusing in a snarky way) self and Quen.  One of the vampires makes an appearance towards the end as well.

 

This is all about two dark elf scientists who are fighting it out for funding, Trent and Trisk, both of whom hate each other, Trisk’s created a genetically engineered tomato that will supposedly end third world hunger. Forced to work together each have their own separate agendas. As I said, the first half was all very technical and the two of them playing off each other to get to their own goals. (I had to keep reminding myself this was set in the 60s as well). Favourite classic songs are on the radio as new music.

 

But of course, jealousy rears its ugly head and one thing leads to another, something goes hideously wrong. This resulting in a wide spread disease that nearly wipes out the human race, bringing out the fear and repercussions of a bunch of vampires, witches and other species trying their best to get head of it and survive as well.  While at the same time Trisk and a companion, the Dr who created the virus in the first place, there’s links to her genetic tomato, and Trent trying to keep on top of things.

 

The second half was much more exciting as things went from bad to worse and Trisk and her friends try to fix the problem. There’s something – satisfying is not the word I’d use – but there’s definitely a so that’s how it all happened feeling about now knowing how The Hollows all started, but it’s certainly not a favourite novel. Though I am glad I read it, and would certainly recommend to Hollows fans.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for approving my request to view the title.

REVIEW
I am sure all the books in this set are fantastic however I am leaving a review for two.

Fallen in Sin by Marissa Farrar
This is a fantastic short, sexy, read. If you enjoy Fallen Angels, Hot Alpha Males and women who are not pushovers then this is just the book for you.
Eva has lost much in her life, and she usually isn't so bold with strangers, but something about Ruax just pulls her to him. He was her hero right?
Can Ruax give up what he has wanted for centuries for a mere human woman?
Or will the devil get his way? Grab your copy I assure you that you won't be disappointed.


Shifting Scales by Decadent Kane
I am a lover of dragon shifter books and this one well it gives us a few twists. We not only get one heck of an Alpha male silver dragon but the one who his magic calls to is not a dragon. Nova is one tough cookie, and she has lived her life without her parents and with Derek who she thinks of as a brother.
Well, when a dragon's scales are taken, and he comes to get them back she loses more than just the scales.
This is a short, and scorching sexy read.
