Perilous Seas
by Dave Duncan

Perilous Seas accelerates the pace of the series with some of the best storytelling and character development to date.

Faery Lands Forlorn
by Dave Duncan

Overall a slow read with some confusing plotlines which is saved by some good character building and the promise of the larger story forming for our two main characters.

Magic Casement
by Dave Duncan

A slow start to the series with minimal character development, I'm nevertheless giving this one three rockets because it does build a good foundation for the remainder of the series.

A Wizard's Guide To Defensive Baking
by T. Kingfisher

A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking is the kind of lightheartedness we all need a little of right now.

Hell Divers IV: Wolves
by Nicholas Sansbury Smith

Our heroes take their struggle to survive from the air to the water in the fourth book in the Hell Divers series. With renewed purpose, the crews of the Hive and Deliverance set their sites on the Metal Islands, a place they intend to call home just as soon as they uproot the cannibals that have already claimed it as their own.

Hell Divers III: Deliverance

Deliverance maintains the fast pace of the previous novels, but the writing, which continues to remain shallow, and the lack of any real character development took this one down a notch compared to the early novels in the series.

Of Blood and Honey
by Stina Leicht

Of Blood and Honey is perhaps the most literary urban fantasy book I’ve read in recent memory. Don't let the "fey and the fallen" subtitle fool you, either. There's a lot of grit here and characters who may surprise you if you let them.

Blood Engines
by Tim Pratt

Pratt goes to great length to tell us how much of a bad ass Mason is, yet we never see that reflected in the unfolding story. It's for that reason that I'm reluctant to go ahead with this series.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds
by Cherie Priest

An enjoyable read that could have used something more to elevate it.
