As usual, I digress. So, reading.
Here's what I'm currently reading:
Kitty Norville series, Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn
About (the series):
Kitty' Norville, a late-night radio DJ, accidentally starts a late-night talk show about Werewolves, Vampires, and other mythical creatures. The catch is - she's a werewolf herself, and the secret is supposed to stay silent.
This is book 3 of the series. I really loved the first book of this particular series. Nice plot setup, good back story, interesting relationship dynamics, but then some important characters are killed off and some of the initial intrigue is lost in the second book. I normally gravitate toward urban fantasies and generally like ones with just a tad less sexy scenes. However, the err, romance, in this book seems forced, at least in the past book (Kitty Goes to Washington).I think I'm going to stick it out for this book and if I'm still feeling lack luster, I may just move on to another series.
What I just finished reading:
Queene of Light by Jennifer Armintrout
An unimagined destiny an undeniable passion. In a time not long from now, the veil between fantasy and reality is ripped asunder creatures of myth and fairytale spill into the mortal world. Enchanted yet horrified, humans force the magical beings Underground, to colonize the sewers and abandoned subway tunnels beneath their glittering cities. But even magic folk cannot dwell in harmony and soon two Worlds emerge: the Lightworld, home to faeries, dragons and dwarves; and the Darkworld, where vampires, werewolves, angels and demons lurk.
Now, in the dank and shadowy place between Lightworld and Darkworld, a transformation is about to begin....
Ayla, a half-faery, half-human assassin is stalked by Malachi, a Death Angel tasked with harvesting mortal souls. They clash. Immortality evaporates, forging a bond neither may survive. And in the face of unbridled ambitions and untested loyalties, an ominous prophecy is revealed that will shake the Worlds.
Loved this book! Lately, to save some moolah, I have been downloading my books from my local library (technology is so cool!), but they only had book 1 of this series. So, if I want to continue this specific reading adventure, I'm gonna have to pony up some dollars, which I very well may do.
This book concerns the world of Faerie, but gives an unusually twisted take on the normally majestic and alternate dimension world of Faerie. Here Faerie is a sad, dark place located below ground where Faeries and other supernatural beings have been exiled to by the Human race.
In addition to urban fantasies/ supernatural/ Faerie inspired books, I just love me a good heroin or female lead.
In this book, Ayla is an excellent lead female character, with just enough passion yet uncertainty about the ever changing world around her. The love story in the book is just detailed enough to draw in the reader, but not too much that you have to blush whilst reading in public.
