Posted 11 January, 2016 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Review, Tweet-Short Reviews | 6 Comments

Dark Debt (Chicagoland Vampires #11) by Chloe Neill20556438

Urban Fantasy, paperback, 368 pages; published Mar. 3, 2015 by NAL Trade; source: publisher

4 stars: Always enjoy Merit’s adventures. Makes me homesick for Chicago (yum, food) tho! Interested to see how this new series arc will play out.


Armageddon Rules (Grimm Agency #2) by JC Nelson

Urban Fantasy, paperback, 336 pages; published Feb. 24, 2015 by Ace; source: publisher

3 stars: Super-fast paced storyline doesn’t give Marissa any downtime; she needs snuggle time with honey-dragon Liam! A bit over-the-top but a fun read.


Night of the Living Demon Slayer (Demon Slayer #7) by Angie FoxPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00030]

Urban Fantasy, paperback, 240 pages; published May 28, 2015 by Angie Fox; source: publisher/author

4 stars: Speaking of over-the-top, this series is all about crazy plotlines. Love Lizzie and her griffin hubby, dog Pirate and, of course, the biker grannies. Hard to go wrong.


The Midnight Queen (Noctis Magicae #1) by Sylvia Izzo Hunter20821047

Fantasy, paperback, 415 pages; published Sept. 2, 2014 by Ace; source: publisher

3 stars: Liked the mix of fantasy and history but the story didn’t really capture me. Great premise but the writing didn’t hold my attention, sadly.


Killing Pretty (Sandman Slim #7) by Richard Kadrey23213849

Urban Fantasy, hardcover, 400 pages; published July 28, 2015 by Harper Voyager; source: publisher

4 stars: Great dialogue, interesting MC, though this wasn’t the strongest in the series (to be fair, I’ve only read 2 others). MC seems to be wandering, a little lost in this one.


Mercenary Instinct (The Mandrake Company #1) by Ruby Lionsdrake23353578

SciFi Romance, ebook, 248 pages; published Oct. 10, 2014 by author; source: purchased

4 stars: Picked this one up after positive chatter on Twitter. Highly enjoyable first installment. Yay for romantic SciFi! Captain Viktor was a hottie.

  1. Ahh i haven’t read any of these books before but considering they’re part of long series and they are still going strong, i’m definitely going to give some a try!
