Do not get me wrong–the formula works, but it has gone stale.

Adding a lot of humor to the suspense and romance is Slade’s dust bunny partner Rex. Relatively light steam, I think. I can hardly contain my excitement for the third instalment’ Fantasy Book Cafe’Absolutely recommended’ Book Smugglers. These two met as teenagers and she had a major crush I don’t know who the girl on the cover of this book is supposed to be, because it in no way is the heroine of the book. She lives in the Pacific Northwest.

He’s facing some career-ending blowback from a previous job and struggling castld find his way to a new path in life. It’s Charley’s last adventure, and the one thing we know for sure is that it’s going to be one wild ride. The mystery has potential, but is under-developed with little to no new information on Mrs.

Magical, heartbreaking, and beautiful’ Jes Reads Books. Included are the quirky dust bunny and unusual psi powers, but after numerous books, these no longer seem fresh or imaginative. Stopping the complete and utter collapse of caslte is quickly becoming Ard’s specialty. Drisker’s student, Tarsha Kaynin, has been reunited with the chief defender nighy the Druid order, and is fanyons to control her powerful Wishsong magic.


In this book, we have Rex, who is a badass bunny-hunter, but develops a taste for women’s fashion. The man always has a problem with his talent and the woman saves him somehow. A very good read with enjoyable characters.

Let me again state how absolutely crappy the sex scenes are in this series. Canyons of Night is no different.

That we never learn about the danger that is clearly developing within the Preserves is a bit of a let-down. I think it only really bothered me because I found the light-hearted, character-based beginning very charming and for it to jump in tone from enjoyable romance to middling suspense was a disappointment.

A beautiful generational tale, reminiscent of Practical Magic. Both of the pair are likeable for the most part, although during the reunion that serves as our intro to our now grown up leads, Charlotte comes across a bit naggy with Slade whose dust bunny pal is on the loose around her precious antiques.

Slade isn’t overwhelming all about his soul mate, as some of the author’s heroes. The powerful new novel from World Fantasy Award-winner K.

If you haven’t read the others, I don’t think you should start here as some of it could be confusing if you didn’t know the world. Both more or less transpose the contemporary Pacific Northwest into SF-nalized colony-planet settings with psi powers, but the series beginning with After Dark adds ancient alien abandoned cities and artifacts to the mix, much to its benefit.

Another comfort read from Canuons. And yet I keep reading this series as new titles are published. September 20, Publication Date: I really dislike the covers, though; all those tight black leather pants. Hachette Audio Magebane Stephen Aryan.


He was maybe a little stubborn in his self-immolation, but nothing Charlotte couldn’t snap him out of. It is easily the best fantasy-heist book I have read in years! Charlotte to take over her late aunt’s antiques shop and Slade to fill the police chief’s position. But it soon becomes clear there’s more at stake than fame and glory – Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilisation.

Of course it comes into play to save the day at the end as usual. Charlotte and Slade had met briefly fifteen years before and had been interested in each other but their lives led them in different directions. And it has crisp, snappy dialog. Of the three installments, I liked this one best – Slade and Charlotte’s relationship, while quickly progressing – seemed more realistic.

Good writing and paranormal abilities and dust bunnies with a bit of romance. They badly need a new home, but peaceful coexistence is not a concept they understand. All in all, it was a very satisfying read, a great conclusion to the Looking Glass trilogy, and a great introduction to stories about the Preserve and Rainshadow.
