I was very excited when I received the email wondering if I was interested in receiving an early copy of Wolfsbane, the sequel to Patricia Briggs’ fantasy novel Masques. I was entertained reading the first book, and I really hoped to get a chance to read the sequel after finishing the first. Slipping back into the high fantasy world that Patricia Briggs created so long ago was so easy and I didn’t have anything to be worried about that distance between when she wrote the first to the second.
My second book review for FanaticSpace, and my second round of being thrown straight into an established urban fantasy series which I had no real knowledge of before receiving the book from the gracious and wonderful people over at Wunderkind PR. (Disclaimer for FTC regulations – I have received this book at no cost) I had a bit of a moment thinking about what I was getting myself into when picking up A Wild Light, third book in the Hunter Kiss series by Marjorie M. Liu.
I’m one of those people that can be found more often than not with a book in my hand, so when I was asked to review a few books for FanaticSpace, I jumped at the chance. The first one on my list happened to be Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong, the eleventh book in her Otherworld Series. (Disclaimer for FTC regulations – I have received this Advanced Reader Copy at no cost from the PR department, Wunderkind PR)
I was a little worried that being thrown straight into a long-established series would make it much harder to review, and there was only one time that I felt a bit left out because I didn’t have the history from the prior books in the series to refer to, but unfortunately, that one time was during the climax of the story. More on that later, though, because this is almost a side-issue due to the rest of the book.
