Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

I finished up Magic Burns today. I really enjoyed it, it definitely cemented the series place as one of my favorites. A definitely 5/5 for me.
I've got 5 The Hollows books waiting to be read, so I'm probably going to start working through those once I get through some of the other stuff I'm reading right now.

Io9 has the first trailer and a poster for the Space/Syfy TV series adaptation of Bitten, the first book in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Other World series.

I really hope Jim Butcher finishes Skin Game (or whatever he decides to call it) soon. I need my next Dresden fix.

Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

I started reading the fourth The Hollows book, A Fistfull of Charms last week. I love this series, and after only a couple chapters I can already tell this one isn't going to change that.

I am late to the game but I want to read The Vampire Diaries novels because I love the show but I hear it differs a great deal from the original novels. Thoughts?

I've had the same thought myself, but I've never really heard much about the books either way.

Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

One thing I heard people complain about is in the books Elena is blonde, The Salvatore Brothers are Italian & there is no BFF of Elena in Meredith. The one from S3 doesn't count it seems. LOL. According to TVD wiki of the show she is alive and we haven't seen her since S4? I actually liked the Meredith they had on the show it is strange she just disappeared.

Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

I'm torn between reading Magic Bleed (Kate Daniels #4) and Proven Guilty (Dresden Files #8) after I finish Divergent. Luckily I have over a hundred pages left in Divergent, so I have time to make up my mind.

Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

Since I couldn't decide between Magic Bleeds and Proven Guilty, I decided to set aside one of my other books I was reading and start both of the.

Got it Monday at Midnight, soon as the Ebook was available! (I'll still buy the Hardback for my Shelf, but I read everything in Ebook now on my phone)

I'm currently about 60% through it. Butcher really knows how to spin a good yarn. Plus I'm eager to try out his forthcoming new series Cinderspires: The Aeronaut's Windlass.

Re: Urban Fantasy: Vampire and Witches and Weres, oh my!

I was busy for half the day yesterday, only got started around 3 and a headache with some visual disturbances came on after about an hour but I kept reading until around 5 and had to give up until bedtime and read another chapter before going to sleep. Otherwise I'd have probably finished it in one sitting.

With how long this took to come out I'm beginning to worry I may never see the series through, but I'm looking forward to more of his work.
