The Alex Southerland series is one of the very best urban fantasy detective series out there, and I'm always keen to jump into the latest installment.

I've heard good things about the Iron Druid chronicles, and finally found the time to start the series.

The Signet Ring: A Trouvères Adventure (The Trouvères Book 1) - Book Review
01, Oct

I loved Knox's AltEarth blend of historical-fantasy since I first saw (the excellent Goblins at the Gate), so I was very keen to try this latest installment, especially as it's promising a mystery.

The Law (The Dresden Files #17.2), by Jim Butcher - Book Review
30, Jul

At this point I'm pretty much invested in the Dresden Files series, so there's a lot of momentum in reading new releases. This review covers the recent Novella plus a short story that appeared in another anthology.

Comeuppance Served Cold, by Marion Deeds - Book Review

Historical-fantasy blends are my favourite genre, and the Roaring 1920's is one of my fav periods, so of course this drew my attention.

A promise of a Hugo-award finalist retelling of one of my favourite greek myth caught my interest for a quick read.

Amongst Our Weapons (Rivers of London #9) by Ben Aaronovitch - Book Review

The Rivers of London is a good series and I've enjoyed the previous volumes, so I was quite excited with new release.

Unremarkable (Unremarkable #1) by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kisse - Book Review

I love the 1920's and historical fantasy, so any combination holds an obvious allure :)

The Demon's Dagger: A Noir Urban Fantasy Novella by Douglas Lumsden - Book Review
09, Apr

I find Lumsden's urban fantasy series one of the best out there, and I will never get tired of saying it. So obviously I was very excited to see a companion novella.

A Practical Guide to Conquering the World (The Siege #3) by K.J. Parker - Book Review
08, Mar

The Siege is one of modern fantasy most unique series, coming from one of the best authors out there, so of course I jumped on the latest (and probably last) installment.
