Author Amy Lane on what makes Green’s Hill so special #Quickening #LittleGoddess #UrbanFantasy
If you're a fan of urban fantasy and you haven't read Amy Lane's Little Goddess series, you MUST check it out. The series has a lot of similarities to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series, but without the retina-burning horror elements and the out-of-control menage. Little Goddess is what Merry Gentry could have been. Don't let that fool you into thinking this series is "safe". Vulnerable (the first book in the series) will break your heart, and each new book after it will shock you in ways you can't predict. But that's what makes this series dynamite. Author Amy Lane is here today with some personal perspective into what makes Green's Hill (the series' home base) so very addicting.

Early Book Review: The Wicked City (Siren Song #1) by Megan Morgan
The Wicked City is an overall good read. There's some room for improvement in Ms. Morgan's expressive abilities - giving the characters and world-building a little more dimension - but if you stick with it, the story is ultimately satisfying and one I'd like to continue reading.

Book Review: Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews
The magic in this story universe is an innovative mix of innate genetic ability and physical spell work based on arcane glyphs and circles- like something straight out of a high fantasy novel. Magic has boundaries - meaning it doesn't give even the Primes, the most powerful of mages - limitless potential.
I haven't enjoyed an urban fantasy book this much since the first Night Huntress book, and that series is one of my all time favorites! This series has a lot of potential and should appeal to lovers of paranormal romance as much as fans of urban fantasy, thanks to the solid writing of team Ilona Andrews and their fierce, daring characterization of Rogan and Baylor.

Featured Early Book Review: Archangel’s Shadows (Guild Hunter #7) by Nalini Singh
Archangel's Shadows is set as a filler story on the overarching archangel political plotline of the series but easily stands out as a must-read story in its own right. Fans of the Guild Hunter series will absolutely want to snatch this one up on release day, worthy of putting aside anything else you have in your TBR pile. Readers new to the series looking for a place to start should pick up Angel's Blood to experience the whole exceptional saga from the very start. One of the most immersive and consistently creative works in urban fantasy, the Guild Hunter series is simply above and beyond anything else in its genre.
