The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher cover

The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher sets up a new sci-fi world with a dystopian twist, as humanity has created artificial intelligence with its own conscious thought. The book begins with heroine Asha waking up with Pax and his sister Iris, although she cannot remember how she got there, or why they would want to take her onto their ship. Asha is from Sanctuary, one of the last remaining human colonies which is watched over by Manti forces. The Manti are an engineered race of humans with insect-like capabilities,…

Enchanting the Beast by Kathryne Kennedy UK cover

Another addition to the paranormal and historical Relics of Merlin series, Enchanting the Beast by Kathryne Kennedy introduces spirits and ghosts into the pre-existing paranormal world of shape-shifters and magic. Philomena Radcliff is able to see ghosts, and the book opens with her conducting a séance in the vicinity of Sir Nicodemus Wulfson, a werewolf visiting the city. He is impressed by her supernatural talents and commissions her to ghost hunt for him at his home, Grimspell Castle, where his brother is being haunted by nightmarish spirits. Phil agrees, eager…

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian UK cover

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian is the first in the Chaos Theory series, and I have to say that this has been my favourite book to read so far this year. The book begins with heroine Evalyn Ibarra, who has been sentenced to a one month stretch in a Compass Room, following her imprisonment for acts of terrorism. These Compass Rooms are new scientific advancements which can supposedly determine whether an individual is morally good (or evil), and thus worthy of regaining their freedom or being executed…

Box Office Poison by Phillipa Bornikova cover

The second in Phillipa Bornikova’s Linnet Ellery series, Box Office Poison, opens with Linnet facing a brand new case, this time more connected to the supernatural than before. With the emergence of ‘The Powers’ (vampires, werewolves and Álfar), humans were introduced to what goes on behind-the-scenes in the world, with the major players pulling the strings. This effect has been felt most heavily in the movie industry, as the beautiful Álfar, or elves, have been winning the most coveted parts in Hollywood, regardless of any acting talent. As a result,…

The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty cover

The Shambling Guide to New York City was one of my favourite new series of 2013, and as a result I had high expectations for this second book, The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty. After the success of their coterie travel guide to New York City, human editor Zoë Norris is back with her writing team of coterie to investigate the hidden pleasures of New Orleans. The book opens with her hiring a new addition to the team, Norse healing goddess, Eir, who comes at the recommendation…

Rebecca's Blogiversary

As it reaches the end of February once more, it’s time to mark my second anniversary as a BCC reviewer! It has been another fantastic year of reading and reviewing, not to mention making more online friends as the BCC review team grows and changes. Again, I’d like to thank Carolyn and the rest of the team for welcoming me on board, as without BCC there would be so many great books which I might never have discovered, and great series which would go unmentioned. There are so many more…

The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D'Lacey cover

After reading and loving last year’s Black Feathers, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D’Lacey, the concluding book in this duology. Following on from book one, Gordon Black is still in pursuit of the elusive Crowman, the figure who will supposedly give him the answers he seeks about how to restore the earth to its natural glory. He has lost everyone and everything close to him, with the only objects he has left being his father’s knife and his bundle of…
