  • The Iron Wyrm Affair: Bannon and Clare, Book 1

    Story
    (74)

    Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

    If you could sum up The Iron Wyrm Affair in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Steampunk Adventure


    What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Moira Quirk was an excellent narrator. Her tone and accent were perfect, and she was pleasantly expressive without going overboard. I will look forward to listening to her again the next time she narrates a title of interest to me.

    In this second installment of Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series set in 1923 England, plucky Daisy Dalrymple embarks on another assignment for Town and Country magazine and discovers that daffodil bulbs aren't all that's buried in a country estate's flower bed.

    Story

    The Daisy Dalrymple books are great fun and take readers into the world of a uniquely independent 25(?)-year-old aristocratic lady of the roaring-20s.Daisy's family is horrified that she is independent and chooses to work and support herself rather than marry a "suitable" gentleman -- ideally one who is both titled and wealthy.

    In her work as a writer for Town and Country magazine, Daisy comes into contact with the rich and powerful of the era, repeatedly finding herself drawn into their lives and those of their families, friends, and servants. She is definitely a busy-body, but one with great compassion, warmth, and humor. As a result, her character is endearing rather than annoying and is great fun to follow.

    As horrified as her family is that she works, they would likely be even more horrified if they realized that she also repeatedly manages to become embroiled in murder cases while on the job. (What would the neighbors think?!) As it happens, her insight, memory for detail, and personable nature serve to help the detectives from Scotland Yard as they seek out the culprit(s) responsible for the crimes in each book in the series.

    The entire series is great fun -- light, laced with humor, fast-paced. While these are generally murder mysteries, there is nothing gory or offensive.

    As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead. While she's always been on friendly terms with Death himself, lately things have become a lot more personal. But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a string of suicides occurs in Nekros City. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very apparent suicides, this is murder. And searching for the answers might mean Alex won't have a life to remember at all....

    Story

    I always look forward to spending time in the world of Alex Craft! She is a strong, clever, and intelligent protagonist caught up in a world of potentially deadly Fae machinations and politics.At the same time, she strives to protect loved ones and those in need from the magical or otherworldly dangers that increasingly seem to be effecting the mortal world. This is a fun, fast-paced series, and I'm looking forward to Alex's further adventures!

    Welcome to the realm of the undead matriarch of a Britain where the aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark; a world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy; and a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns. Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the aristocracy....

    What did you like best about this story?

    The primary heroine is both flawed and vulnerable in some ways but also tenacious, strong, and loyal. Supportive characters are also well-drawn, with complex personalities and life histories. I look forward to learning more about each of them!
