Broken Soul

Broken SoulTitle: Broken Soul
Author: Faith Hunter
Series: Jane Yellowrock, book 8
Genre: Urban fantasy

Opening sentence:

Visiting the Master of the City of New Orleans was always challenging, but it was worse when he was in a mood.

This series is without a doubt on my top 5 urban fantasy series list. Hmm I should make one shouldn’t I? It has just the right mix of relationships, plot, suspense, pacing and action to keep me interested from start to finish. This is probably evident in the fact that I read something like 10 Yellowrock short stories this year.

Blood Price

317121Title: Blood Price
Author: Tanya Huff
Series: Vicki Nelson, book 1
Genre: Urban fantasy

After reading clean sweep I was really in the mood to read some more good urban fantasy – yes that happens quite a lot for me.

No mobile phones, no internet – if you wanted to look something up, you better find a paper copy.

The Undead Pool

The Undead PoolTitle: The Undead Pool
Author: Kim Harrison
Series: The Hollows, book 12
Genre: Urban fantasy

This is one of the books I have been looking forward to the release of. And I was lucky enough that the audiobook came out at the same time as the paper book (yeah) so I could continue to listen the series rather than reading it.

I think this is one of the best urban fantasy series out there! Rachel Morgan the protagonist is such a wonderful character. She is so well-rounded. She got tons of flaws and makes mistakes but that just makes her human. She is not one of the flat “strong female characters” that sadly takes up too much of the genre.

I have been looking forward to reading the next installment of the Jane Yellowrock series since I finished the last one and it did not disappoint – once again the plot moved along at a high clip and there were still time for great and very real relationships with all the people surrounding Jane.
