City of Stairs

City of Stairs is a fantastic cross-genre read, one I'd definitely recommend to anyone in the mood for a cerebral plot and fabulously rich world building.


The Silvered

While this is a stand-alone, I’m looking forward to reading more work from Tanya Huff.


The Magician's Land: A Novel

Like the first two books in this series, The Magician’s Land had me hooked from page one.


Endsinger

Endsinger proves that, with cultural appropriation issues taken into account, he can successfully bring the themes and action of a fantasy trilogy to a successful conclusion.


Broken Homes

While I was not too happy with the pace of this book (middle of a series doldrums), this book is a must read for those who love police procedural, London, and magic.


The Secrets of Life and Death

The Secrets of Life and Death suffers mostly from ambition and clutter.


The Slow Regard of Silent Things

There’s a sense that Rothfuss has chosen every one of those words with great care and precision, using them to tell a story that’s lyrical, heart-felt and unique.


The Slow Regard of Silent Things

The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a charming, if rather melancholic tale, that leaves the reader feeling rather sad that it has finished.


Horns
SFFWorld : Horns by Joe Hill (October 31, 2014)

Horns was a terrific read which helps to bolster Joe Hill’s already high status in my personal pantheon of storytellers/writers.


The Hawley Book of the Dead: A Novel

Overall, this is a great novel for fall and Halloween. It’s scary, suspenseful, and I love the paranormal aspects.


The Bloodbound

There’s a great sense of hopefulness and positivity in the characters and paths through which the plot drives.


The Slow Regard of Silent Things

If you've read Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, you should read The Slow Regard of Silent Things, because it's a real treat for all readers who have read the novels. It's a satisfying literary fantasy novella that will most likely please fans of Patrick Rothfuss.


Bathing the Lion

The only mystery left here is why this book was published at all.


Bathing the Lion

The scientific fantasy element of Bathing the Lion may turn off some potential readers, and the abrupt shifts in time may discourage others. Those who persevere though will find a delightful, quirky novel that truly captures what it means to be human.


Bathing the Lion

Though short, the novel is not a breezy read; it's a quiet, character-driven musing on the value of life and death that lovers of magical realism should embrace but that readers wishing for a more cohesive story will find frustrating.


Of Bone and Thunder

Memorable and deeply satisfying—a fitting tribute to those who serve.


Rooms

We read this book for its engaging plot, and perhaps we do think about what it means to connect, for as the characters wander through Richard’s house, the vistas of the present, the past, and the future reveal that neither the living nor the dead are able to grasp how to understand one another while staying true to themselves.


We Are Not Good People

An action-filled urban fantasy that offers absorbing storytelling in a gritty atmosphere of crime and a merciless, often ugly, magic built on violence.


Die and Stay Dead

A repetitive and unfocused setup for a third novel.


Die and Stay Dead
Kirkus Reviews : Die and Stay Dead (September 30, 2014)

A repetitive and unfocused setup for a third novel.
