Urban Fantasy Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega #4)


Egalley thanks to Ace

Synopsis from Goodreads
For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way...

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

God, I love this series! More than I love Mercy Thompson. And you know why? It feels structurally stronger, the story is tighter and emotionally more compact. Maybe I'm prejudiced because it reminds me of the glory days of early Kelley Armstrong with her Women of The Otherworld series. Who knows?


Steampunk Romance Early Review: Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster

Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster (London Steampunk #5)


Egalley thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca

Synopsis from Goodreads
Enemies. Allies. Lovers.

When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When Mina obtains evidence proving that Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son, a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.

A woman of mystery, Mina's long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows she's hiding something, and he's determined to unravel her layer by silken layer. He just doesn't expect the beautiful liar to be the key to overthrowing the corrupt prince consort… or to saving his own carefully walled-off heart.

I don't know what's going on with Bec McMaster but she seems to be writing her best books in odd numbers. Kiss of Steel, My Lady Quicksilver, and now, Of Silk and Steam are all pretty spectacular, while I can't even remember the names of books in between.

The Postman Knock #114

Hello, peeps, and Happy Mothers Day to everyone in UK!
We had a good week and attempted to shear our sheep quite successfully:))) It was a lot of fun! Because I worked so much outdoors I listened to audiobooks almost non-stop and managed to read quite a bit in the evening too. It's gorgeous and warm, spring is in the air, and we are feeling happy.
How about you?

READ & LISTENED TO:


BURNED -  I'm not convinced it was good enough for such a highly anticipated book, and I didn't like what KMM did to Dani. Saying all that, I will still read the next one. Unfortunately for WARCRY, it can hod a candle to the first three books in the series which is why it took me so long to finish it. Meh. Same for REMOVED - such an interesting concept, and the whole book drowned in triviality! A shame. SUMMER KNIGHT was good, and oh poor Harry, he can't catch a break! Enjoyed it, and Marsden is a perfect narrator. MURDER IN HINDSIGHT was utterly delicious, and I can't wait for more Acton & Doyle's weird relationship So. Good. Okay, NON-STOP TILL TOKYO was just AMAZING! Pure adrenaine rush. At last, FOXGLOVE SUMMER was funny and relaxing, which was nice after such a dramatic ending in previous book of the series. And I luurve the narrator!

NETGALLEY:
