ONCE BROKEN FAITH BY SEANAN MCGUIRE

New York Times-bestselling October Daye series • Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire • “Top of my urban-paranormal series list!” —Felicia Day

Includes a brand-new map and original bonus novella!

Politics have never been October “Toby” Daye’s strong suit. When she traveled to the Kingdom of Silences to prevent them from going to war with her home, the Kingdom of the Mists, she wasn’t expecting to return with a cure for elf-shot and a whole new set of political headaches.

Now the events she unwittingly set in motion could change the balance of modern Faerie forever, and she has been ordered to appear before a historic convocation of monarchs, hosted by Queen Windermere in the Mists and overseen by the High King and Queen themselves.

Naturally, things have barely gotten underway when the first dead body shows up. As the only changeling in attendance, Toby is already the target of suspicion and hostility. Now she needs to find a killer before they can strike again—and with the doors locked to keep the guilty from escaping, no one is safe.

As danger draws ever closer to her allies and the people she loves best, Toby will have to race against time to prevent the total political destabilization of the West Coast and to get the convocation back on track…and if she fails, the cure for elf-shot may be buried forever, along with the victims she was too slow to save.

Because there are worse fates than sleeping for a hundred years.

The book starts with Toby and the gang relaxing at home thinking that they can have some downtime. The High King and Queen has ordered  Toby to appear before them at Queen Windermere. They are to discuss whether or not to wake up those sleeping the effects of elf shot. We all know what happens when they are called into appear before someone?

blood of the earth coverSet in the same world as the New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, an all-new series starring Nell Ingram, who wields powers as old as the earth.

When Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she was almost alone in the world, exiled by both choice and fear from the cult she was raised in, defending herself with the magic she drew from her deep connection to the forest that surrounds her.

Now, Jane has referred Nell to PsyLED, a Homeland Security agency policing paranormals, and agent Rick LaFleur has shown up at Nell’s doorstep. His appearance forces her out of her isolated life into an investigation that leads to the vampire Blood Master of Nashville.

Nell has a team—and a mission. But to find the Master’s kidnapped vassal, Nell and the PsyLED team will be forced to go deep into the heart of the very cult Nell fears, infiltrating the cult and a humans-only terrorist group before time runs out…

From the Paperback edition.

Blood of the Earth (A Soulwood Novel) is a great start to a new series! This is a spin-off of the Jane Yellowrock series. I have not read a book by Faith Hunter that I did not like.

It has led him to the cult that Nell had once belonged to not far from her property that she lives at.

I have been anticipating FIRE TOUCHED, since I finished NIGHT BROKEN. This book did  not disappoint.  It has action, humor, and lots of Mercy. Patricia Briggs’ character development and world building is awesome. When one of the children of Underhill escape, they must make a bargain with the Fae before they declare war on Mercy’s home town. Aiden is one of the children of Underhill, but when you are in Underhill you will be changed. Aiden is Fire Touched. He is unable to control his fire, and when his emotions are running high, things tend to go up in flame. He is basically an Adult in a child’s body. As usual with Mercy, things have a tendency to go from bad to worse. I love the Mercy universe! If you have not read this series, then I urge you to start  reading it today.  I give FIRE TOUCHED 5/5 STARS.You will be laughing from the first page.Now I have to wait patiently for the next book. Oh, the AGONY!!

REVIEW – REAP THE WIND BY KAREN CHANCE


From the New York Times bestselling author of Tempt the Stars comes the latest in the series that’s “well worth getting hooked on”(Fresh Fiction).

You’d think that being chief seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn’t entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.

Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in-and-out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the timeline dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two….

REAP THE WIND is a roller coaster of a ride! Cassie is the Pythia, but ever since she was chosen, she has no idea what she is doing. Since she  became Pythia, Gods want to return to Earth to wreak havoc, and she has other groups that want to control her. Also she has the other Acolyte’s lead by Myra who wants to kill her so she can be the next Pythia. Right now all she wants to do is save Pritkin and lift he curse. So, to save him she has to go back in time and remove the curse from him. Easy, right? Nothing is easy in Cassie’s world. She will have to time jump many times, and dodge angry Fae and the Pythia of that time. Let’s just say when she gets back to her time, she looks like she was dragged through the mud, more than once. I wonder how she can stay on her feet with all the jumping around, with little sleep and food. If it was me, I would have been killed long ago. Somehow she always wins!! I love this book and series. I give REAP THE WIND 4/5 STARS.
