Where this novel shines...is in its magical and theological systems.

The Shadow of What Was Lost

A promising page-turner from a poised newcomer who’s well worth keeping tabs on.

Certain Dark Things is Urban Fantasy, Noir, alternate history in a tale of revenge, survival and, why-not, love – it’s the vampire tale I did not know I was waiting for.

A Torch Against the Night

I finished this book but I’m unsure that I’ll be continuing the series. And as such, I can’t truly recommend it.

Ilona Andrews is so talented and this world so strong and compelling that it’s hard not to expect too much from a series that has been consistently delivering for years.

Drug wars, vampires, Mexico City and a smidge of history besides, and all set in the very near future, Certain Dark Things is a fabulous read.

The Ferryman Institute: A Novel

The term "beach read" could easily be applied to The Ferryman Institute, but since we are past Summer at this point, if you're needing a little light reading to cheer you from the miserable, frigid grayness of impending Winter, this would be a solid title to pick up.

The Family Plot

You don't have to be a fan of reality tv to love Priest's latest, but I would definitely say that you have to be a fan of haunted house books!


In Persona, Suyana survived a gunshot. In Icon, Suyana calls the shots, and every shutter-click drives a bullet through the heart of her world.

[Lockwood] manages to reinvent that ever-popular character, the European dragon, in a fresh and inventive way, creating a thoroughly entertaining adventure.

Sure to please series regulars and fans of urban fantasy/mystery/romance.

The Everything Box

After the 4th kidnapping, the werewolf fight, and the broken office microwave that was secretly a portal to another dimension, I wasn't anything except along for the ride.

Every Heart a Doorway is the story about portal fantasies I never knew I needed.

The Everything Box

A supernatural comic caper that reads like one of the late Donald Westlake’s Dortmunder novels sprinkled with some fairy dust.

Arcadia: A novel

“Arcadia” leads readers into an escalating series of interconnected textual worlds and deliberately avoids helping them to achieve any final utopian vision.

Son of the Morning: A Novel

Son of the Morning lacks the traditional single hero...but its strength lies in the interesting elements of the mythology that Alder has constructed...

The Last Days of Magic: A Novel

While I enjoyed reading it, there is just a bit too much unfulfilled potential to allow me to gush about it the way I hoped I would.
