Kindling the Moon (Arcadia Bell #1) by Jenn Bennett

New authors have it tough and that's the plain hard fact, not only do they have to bring something fresh and new to the table, but in a growing genre like UF, you gotta bring in your top gun and Jenn Bennett brings it ten-fold with flags waving and gun blazing with Kindling the Moon. I was happily surprised in how much I loved and enjoyed this book, the pace and story were very easy to follow along with a great world building and most of all LON! RAWR! In UF you want the perfect balance in your lead, someone "not" perfect, but can kick-ass when the time comes and someone to relate to on some level, while holding and pushing the story along- Arcadia "Cady" Bell is that perfect blend. On the run and in hiding Cady has been living in hiding when her parents were accused of murder. A bar owner/bartender of a Tiki Bar that cater to the Earthbound -demons whom are part human and demon- Cady has been enjoying her life, but still worries about her parents as she her…

Dead on the Delta (Annabelle Lee #1) by Stacey Jay

The mere premise of this book drew me in, I mean cute little fairies that drink the blood and kill humans by their bites and a few people immure to this? Whoa! The story holds up in some places, excels in others and kinda loses the reader along the way, but the story, as a whole is a good start to this series. Annabelle Lee is on her way to hitting rock bottom, through meds that help her sleep to that one more drink to help her going through the day, the life as an one immure to fairy bites has placed her at crime scenes and areas that would slowly break anyone. Her life becomes more stressed when she finds the body of a young six year old, and in a small town with a few deep and dark secrets, Annabelle is stuck between a rock and a hard place and someone waiting in the deep dark fairy filled forest … Authors take a chance when they write characters from one someone who pops pills to an alcoholic, Annabelle is made a sympathetic character but comes off strong enough to get the j…

Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles #3) by Kevin Hearne

First off a big thank-you to Kevin Hearne and my great GR friends whom made this book extra kick-ass and brought me back into the UF genre I walked away from years ago a genre I’ve missed reading and would have kept missing without taking a chance and picking up this series! Unlike Hounded and Hexed- Hammered gives the readers a more deeper and darker theme the books before it. Through-out your given glimpses into the long lived Atticus, this time around your given a even more better insight into his past and those he’s loved and lost before. It tears at your heart, but makes you all that more connected to Atticus. Atticus for me is the perfect balance in a character. He’s a guy’s guy, he doesn’t have all the answers and he makes some small and big mistakes along the way. He’s may have lived a long time, but in the end he’s very human in everything he feels and does, and I love him for it (AND OBERON!! I love that crazy dog!). In a world where people lie and break promises all the…
