You guys have heard me babble enough about Furnace — you can read an excerpt here and hear me read from it here — but here’s what folks are saying about the other books…..
On Paul Kane’s Arcana:
Arcana is a hugely entertaining read, a real rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that keep the pages turning until the very end, and another work of high quality from this prolific author.
– Starburst Magazine
On Emily Martha Sorensen’s “Werevulture” series:
I can say with absolute certainty that this is one of my new favorite series. Trials of a Teenage Werevulture has the perfect amount of paranormal, mystery, and humor to make it a wonderful action-packed adventure! There was never a dull moment and I loved Lisette’s character.
– Amazon Review
On Erin M. Hartshorn’s Ghost Garages:
Urban fantasy and cozy mystery mix amusingly in this first novel in the Boston Technowitch series. … Some aspects of Pepper’s life are a little absurd …. But if you can handle them, the quirks and over-the-top bits add a lot to the fun, for a very entertaining start to a new series.
On Janet Tait’s Cast Into Darkness:
A fun, creative, non-stop adventure! Tait brings us a well-realized magical world full of double dealing, action, and romance that fans of urban fantasy (like me!) will really love.
– Chris Marie Green, author of Only the Good Die Young
On Amity Green’s Scales:
Amity Green proves that there’s still room for invention in YA fantasy. Leave it to a Texas Gargoyle in London to teach us what it means to be human.
– D.J. Butler, bestselling author of Witchy Eye
On Gail Carriger’s How to Marry a Werewolf:
This book is a lot of fun but also goes a little deeper and darker into the worst of Parasolverse society problems than some of Carriger’s other books. From what sends Faith to London to Channing’s own past, I’d call both backstories much more tragic than others Carriger has written. It gives these two more minor characters a bit of depth that we don’t always get for “lesser” characters.
– Book Loving Nut
On J.S. Morin’s Shadowblood Heir:
Matt’s is an interesting head to live in, and it’s fascinating to see the world through his eyes and experience the ensuing weirdness along with him.
– Amazon Review
On Meg Cowley & Victoria DeLuis’s Relic Guardians Collection:
The marketing blurb on Amazon says of Ancient Magic: “Fans of Lara Croft and Indiana Jones will enjoy this fast-paced urban fantasy adventure series filled with magic, action, and kick-ass characters.” For once you CAN believe the hype, because this is exactly what you are getting.

And, what the heck, here’s one for my own A Furnace Sealed:
The author is a born and bred New Yorker and the love for his city practically oozes from the pages. It’s so refreshing to see other parts of New York, besides Manhattan, represented in prose. There are a slew of tidbits about the city thrown in. They showcase the history of the city and the flavour of the different neighbourhoods. The tidbits also add depth to the story, and as a history lover, they make me want to go read up more on the topics mentioned.
