THE LAW: A DRESDEN FILES NOVELLA by Jim Butcher is the latest story set in the wonderful world of Harry Dresden. Despite the fact I have some criticisms about the books, it remains one of my favorite urban fantasy series. Harry is just so damn likable, his flaws aside, and the writing style is just a warm Pop Tart to the brain. Unfortunately, a big cloud hangs over this volume and that is the fact it is the first story since the controversial death of an important supporting cast member. If you pick up this audiobook, prepare to be spoiled for it as it is a follow-up story to BATTLE GROUND. I admit to being one of those fans in denial who suspect they’ll be back sooner than later but we’ll see how that goes in upcoming books.
THE VILIFICATION OF AQUA MARINE by Megan Mackie was a book I was very interested in because I was a huge fan of the author's THE FINDER OF THE LUCKY DEVIL, which was an oddball combination of cyberpunk and urban fantasy. So hearing that she was doing a superhero novel was something that immediately inspired me to pick this up when it became available. People who know me may also note that I'm something of a superhero author myself, so I'm always glad to see the prose superhero genre expanded too.
THE TERRAN PRIVATEER is the first novel of the DUCHY OF TERRA series by Glynn Stewart. I am already familiar with Glynn Stewart due to the fantastic STARSHIP'S MAGE series. That series was about magicians able to move starships through hyperspace. This is a more grounded series about the idea of Earth making First Contact with an expansionist alien race, only to be swiftly conquered. Which is quite the hook.
