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…


So the final Cat and Bones books is here. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, but at the same time I wasn’t necessarily looking forward to finishing it. I hate saying goodbye to a favourite series, and Cat and Bones have been on my favourites list for quite a while. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from it or where Frost was going to take us on this final journey, and she did surprise me, but in a good way. The plot is seriously action packed….

Affliction - Laurell K. Hamilton

Affliction is book 22 in the Anita Blake series, and it’s a series I have a love to hate relationship with. I’ve nearly given up on it a couple of times, but there is something quite compelling about Hamilton’s writing. The last couple of books before this one have been an improvement, I really enjoyed Hit List, then felt that Kiss the Dead took a bit of a step backwards. But, the good news is that Affliction is undoubtedly one of the best books in the series in a long…
