Soulless | Steampunk fun

“Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. ”

With a description like that things can only get better. This little book was one of the best finds I’ve had in a while. Ms Carriger writes a very tongue in cheek account about life as a spinster during the Victorian age.

Dante Valentine | Urban fantasy meets Cyberpunk

When I first read on of Lilith Saintcrow’s books, I thought she was enjoyable enough, but not one of those authors I would put on my “must have” list. That was until I read the first Dante Valentine book, Working for the Devil. I didn’t know much about the series, but thought I should at least read the first book to see whether it was worth getting the rest. Was I in for a surprise! This book is gritty, brash and just like the main character, takes no prisoners.

New Urban Fantasy

I recently came across a new urban fantasy author, Gena Showalter. She sold her first book 4 years ago and already has a range of 13 books available, with more in the pipeline. That is a very short time in which to become a New York Times best seller.

The book reviews I found for her looked interesting and I decided to try the first book in her Alien Huntress series, Awaken Me Darkly. The story follows Mia Snow, and alien huntress for the New Chicago Police Department. A series of strange killings (as if there are ever any normal killings) has her and her partner, Dallas, hunting a particularly nasty alien. Do yourself a favour and do not read the official book synopsis – it doesn’t do the book justice at all.
