Iron Night: A Generation V Novel by M.L. Brennan
5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 8 April 2014
I loved the first book in this series and to my delight, this one is even better. The world is imaginative - and it's hard to be different when writing about vampires these days - and the characters engaging. The plot works well and integrates nicely with the development of the characters, especially the hero of the story.
The Marked Son (Keepers of Life) by Shea Berkley
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 17 Mar 2014
Very enjoyable opening story in a series that has the potential to be excellent. Good characters, thoughtful plot, and enough unresolved threads for future twists.
Relentless (Book One) by Karen Lynch

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 17 Mar 2014
I bought this because (a) I like urban fantasy and (b) it was at a very low price. I figured it was worth taking a chance. The reality is, this would have been a bargain at full price. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a unique take on the classic urban fantasy cast of characters and the plot rattles along at a great pace. The character development is good and the scene is set for the next in the series, without leaving the reader up in the air on an outright cliffhanger (I hate that!).

An excellent start to what I hope becomes a lengthy series.
