Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith

When this book’s beautiful cover caught my eye on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it, and I’m glad I picked up Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith. The book is set (surprisingly enough) in the kingdom of Darkhaven, which is ruled by Florentyn Nightshade, the Overlord. The Nightshade family has ruled the city for centuries, predominantly because of their ability to shift into one of five powerful creatures, and Florentyn is no exception. He is a powerful man who is determined to secure an heir, with his existing…

Angel's Ink

Angel’s Ink by Jocelynn Drake (The Asylum Tales #1) Harper Voyager (Oct 2012) Paperback, 338 Pages Urban Fantasy Having really enjoyed the two short prequel novella’s; The Asylum Interviews: Bronx and The Asylum Interviews: Trixie, I couldn’t wait to delve into the first full length novel in this series, Angel’s Ink. Thankfully, my enthusiasm was rewarded as Drake has pulled out a novel with a hero that could easily rival both Jim Butcher’s, Harry Dresden, and Kevin Hearne’s, Atticus. This really was a book that took you on a really wild ride….

Not once did I feel as if this was a “deleted” scene from her forthcoming full length…

The Taken

The Taken (The Celestial Blues #1) by Vicki Petersson Harper Voyager (June 2012) | Paperback, 432 pages Urban Fantasy When I heard about Vicki Pettersons new series, I was instantly anticipating its release. I loved the first book in her Zodiac Series and so this looked promising. After finishing The Taken, I am at odds on how I feel about it. True, I did enjoy the book and it was a very different beast from her Zodiac Series, but it hasn’t made that much of an impact that makes the book an…
