LIPSTICK VOODOO – REVIEW

Kincaid Strange, not your average voodoo practitioner, is back in the freshly imagined and hugely entertaining second installment of Kristi Charish’s urban fantasy series.

Kincaid Strange cannot catch a break. After dealing with a spate of paranormal murders, there’s barely time to recuperate–let alone sleep in–before there’s a new problem in Kincaid’s world of paranormal activity. When her roommate, Nathan Cade–the ghost of a grunge-rocker with a pathological lack of self-control–comes home bound to a dead body, it’s up to Kincaid to figure out how to free him. Ideally before her new mentor, Gideon, a powerful sorcerer’s ghost, discovers that Nate is trapped in the body he’d coveted for himself.
When Aaron, a Seattle cop on the afterlife beat–and Kincaid’s ex–calls her in to help out with a cold case, she takes the chance to mend fences with the police department. The problem: they want to interview Nate’s ghost, which she can’t produce. Then people from Nate’s past start showing up dead, and what’s killing them doesn’t seem to be human. And the way it’s killing them is especially brutal.
Nate’s hiding something, but he’s Kincaid’s friend and she wants to help him. But she also wants to stay alive….

A great follow-up to the first book. Christi Charish does not dissappoint in writing a good story. Nathan Cade’s soul is in another body, and Kincade has to find a way to free him. A new case connects Nathan to the homicide. People from his past and the grung scene are coming up dead. I love reading stories of zombies, especially one that don’t want to eat you on first sight. This was such a great read, and I recommend it to everyone. I give Lipstick Voodoo: The Kincaid Strange Series, Book Two (Kincaid Strange Series, The 2) 5/5 stars.

OWL AND THE TIGER THIEVES by Kristi Charish

Owl and the Tiger Thieves cover

In this fourth Owl novel, Kristi Charish (The Voodoo Killings) melds sparkling fantasy with the grit of urban underbelly—with a detour through the world’s most spectacular cities. This is perfect for fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

Through no fault of her own, Alix has found herself essential to the fate of the world as we know it. She didn’t mean for this to happen—she was quite happy being merely the notorious antiquities thief, and ex-archeologist, known as Owl.

However, years ago, Owl reluctantly entered the secret world of the supernatural. Her goals: complete one job, escape one bounty on her head, continue her thieving in peace.

Fast forward to today. Now, she has become a key player in a brutal paranormal civil war that is rapidly getting out of hand. The leader of one of these factions—a lethal opponent called the Electric Samurai—grows more powerful by the second. To stop him, Owl sets out to find the long-lost, legendary group known as the Tiger Thieves.

But will it be too little too late? One thing Owl misses about “normal” archaeology: there are few emergencies with thousand-year-old relics.

This book is Awesome!! I love Owl and the other characters in this book and series. This series is a fresh take on the Indiana Jones story with a supernatural element thrown in. Owl is on a mission to find something or just about anything to save her boyfriend Rynn from the Electric Samurai Armour.  She hunting the medallions of the Tiger Thieves so she can locate them. In her quest she stumbles across Da Vinci and one of his devices. You are probably wondering what this device does? Well, it kills supernaturals and the Electric Samurai wants it. Now she has supernaturals coming after her for the device and things are going down hill fast. This book has a twist at the end that I did not see coming! I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give Owl and the Tiger Thieves (The Owl Series) 5/ 5 stars.

REVIEW – OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI BY KRISTI CHARISH

owl and the electric samurai
The third exciting novel starring the unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world. From the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish (Owl and the Japanese Circus) and for fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

The International Archaeology Association (IAA) is responsible for keeping all things supernatural under wraps. They’re also responsible for ruining the promising archaeology career of Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl.

Needless to say, Owl’s still a little sore about that.

Just to keep Owl’s life lively, the IAA has opened a bounty on the two designers of World Quest, the online RPG that is much, much more than it seems. Owl needs to locate the notorious gaming duo before the other mercenaries do. But finding the gamers won’t be easy since every clue points to them hiding out in the legendary lost city of Shangri-La. Not to mention that the last time Owl and the game designers spoke, their conversation didn’t exactly end on the best note…

Meanwhile, undercurrents of supernatural politics are running amok in Tokyo, dragging Owl and her friends into a deadly game of wits with an opponent who calls himself the Electric Samurai. The cost of losing? All-out civil war between two powerful supernatural factions.

All in all, just another great day on the job.

Owl and the Electric Samurai (The Owl Series) is a wild read! I love these characters and the cross between urban fantasy and Indiana Jones. The characters and storyline are very well-developed. Owl is employed by a Dragon in Vegas to find magical artifacts. Owl loves to screw with the IAA (International Archeology Assoctiation) and does everything in her power to do it. She usually uses an RPG game named World Quest to help her located items. The creators of this game have gone missing and is wanted by the IAA. Owl is trying to find them before the IAA. She also is sent to find magical armor the the dragon. All the clues point to it being in Shangri-La. Now she has different paranormals wanting the armor  and the creators of the game. Who will get to them first? I have fell in love with this series!! I also recommend this book and series to everyone. I give OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW – OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS BY KRISTI CHARISH


The wild second adventure for unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish. For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like.

Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new contract job for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on some treasures of the mysterious Syrian City of the Dead that are sitting in a recluse’s private collection.

There’s just one wrinkle. To stop the resurrection of an undead army that could wreak havoc on Los Angeles, Owl must break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight in one of the most volatile regions in the world. A detour through Libya and a run-in with Somali pirates sends the clock ticking hastily toward total paranormal disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking Owl’s apartment, but they have by no means forgotten their death grudge against her. To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that there is nothing heavenly about the City of Angels..

OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS just gets better, and better. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Owl is in trouble again. The IAA is after her for stealing several artifacts, but there is one catch, she did not do it. Yes, she stole a few, but not the ones they are accusing her for. She escapes Egypt and is determined to find who is out there stealing artifact in her name. After careful research they trace it back to the city of the dead. Someone is stealing cursed artifacts and selling them. Now, Owl must return those artifacts. During one of her retrievals, she accidentally touches one of the artifacts and is cursed. Now the clock is ticking and she must find a way to lift the curse or die. Oh, and she has to stop the people stealing the artifacts also. I love this series!! It is like Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider all in one. I also love her cat Captain, he steals the show. If you have not picked up the first book in this series, I really urge you to do so. You will love it. I give OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS 5/5 STARS.

URBAN FANTASY BOOK REVIEW – OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS BY KRISTI CHARISH

owl and the japanese circus
Book Description
Publication Date: January 13, 2015
Fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, and Linda Hamilton will flock to the kick-ass world of Owl, a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world.

Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem – and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief.

Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa’s ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa’s trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a hand basket fast…and Owl has to pick sides.

OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS is a cross between Indiana Jones, the Librarian, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is a wild ride of a read, with well-developed characters and a great story line.  Alix (aka. Owl) is a disgraced archaeologist that now is a freelancer who recovers artifacts for her clients. One thing that she tries to do is not to take any jobs  from any supernaturals. Oh, and she is on the run from the Paris vampires. When she is summoned to meet Mr. Kurosawa, her last client. She delivered everything that he wanted and asked for. When she meets him, she finds out that she has been working with a supernatural all along. Mr. Kurosawa is a red dragon, and she is still working for him. What she did nit know is that the egg that she delivered to him was supposed to be housing a scroll. If it falls into the wrong hands would be very bad for everyone. This book will give you a few belly laughs and Alix is a kick-ass heroine. I want to be like her. I give OWL AND THE JAPANESE CIRCUS  5/5 stars.
