Curled Up With a Good Book site

My newest review: The Tesla Conspiracy by Michael D. Finley.

A conspiracy around Tesla’s inventions.

My newest review: Gilded: The St. Croix Chronicles by Karina Cooper.

This turned out to be a second book in the series and unfortunately, I think I might have missed some information about the heroine so it felt a bit confusing. The heroine is both an abused orphan *and* a rich heiress?? On the other hand, I really liked the setting and that the plot moved very quickly rather than dragging certain points *cough*romance*cough* over several books.

My newest review: Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells: An Anthology of Gaslamp Fantasy edited by Ellen Datlow and Terry Windling.

Unfortunately, I didn’t like all of the short stories but I did find a couple of interesting new-to-me authors.

My newest review: Dead Man’s Deal by Jocelynn Drake.

It’s the second book in her new urban fantasy series where the main character is a (male) tattoo artist. I gave it four and half stars from five, so I really liked it.

My newest review: The Janus Affair: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris.

It’s the second book in the lighthearted steampunk series and I liked it more than the first book, Phoenix Rising. I really hope they will continue with the series.

My newest review: K. A. Stewart: Devil in the Details.

Now this is urban fantasy I like! The main character is a modern day samurai and he’s happily married.

My newest review: Chicks kick butt, edited by Rachel Caine and Kerrie L. Hughes.

It’s an urban fantasy short story collection. Most of the stories are set in the authors’ respective worlds and presumably with their main POV characters. I’m not familiar with most of the authors.

It was very hard to grade. I really enjoyed a few of the stories and most were ok. However, there was also one story where the plot made no sense but it could be because I’m not familiar with the world.

My newest review: Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris’s Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel.

This was a weird book. I throughly enjoyed the first half of it but during the latter fourth, it felt a bit too long and I had serious problems with the ending.

Three stars from five.

My newest review: Teresa Frohock’s Miserere.

This is an intense book sent in an alternate Earth. I gave it four and half stars from five and I’m looking forward to Frohock’s next book.

Chapters 1-4 are available for free on the author’s web site.

My newest review: Sarah Jane Stratford’s Moonlight Brigade.
It’s a vampire novel set during the Second World War and just loads of fun.

I gave it four stars of five.
