Title: All the Windwracked Stars
Author: Elizabeth Bear
Series: The Edda of Burdens, book 1
Genre: Postapocalyptic fantasy.
Setting: Eiledon, the last city of a dying world, in an age of technomancers.
Reason for Reading: I heard it was loosely based on a Norse edda, and that was very intriguing to me.
Finished In: Hours. I checked it out yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning.
Pages: 368
Copyright Date: 2008
Cover: A woman dressed as a Valkyrie (waelcyrge, in this book) stands with a two-headed winged antelope-looking thing (valraven, in this book). A desolate cityscape is behind them.
First line: "There was snow at the end of the world, and Kasimir was dying in it."
Best part: The worldbuilding was just as good as in Bear's other books, with the action being much more fast-paced.
Worst part: The ending was a little confusing.
Imaginary Theme Song: Heiemo og Nykkjen
Grade: A. It's been a long time since I saw someone write about myth and science tangled together in such a compelling way.
Recommended for: I think any fans of Norse mythology should give it a try.
Related Reads: Companion to Wolves, which Bear cowrote with Sarah Monette. Brisingr by Diana Paxson. Chimera by Will Shetterly (which does not have a Norse theme but does have a lot of genetically engineered and mutated people in an underclass, as this book has).

Favorite quote, with a bit of a spoiler. )

Muire is the last of the waelcyrge, warriors of the Light. She run when she should have fought.
Kasimir is the last of the valravens, winged steeds of the waelcyrge. He lived when he should have died.
Mingan is the Gray Wolf, devourer, betrayer. He has never done what he should - but now that an old love has come again in a new form, his desires may set in motion a chain of events that no one could have predicted.

I really enjoyed this book. I almost didn't give Bear another chance after Carnival, which I found incredibly slow despite its intriguing premise. This one is fast, funny, and unpredictable. Better yet, as a former student of Norse language and literature, it FEELS Norse. Though she doesn't seem to have based it on a particular Edda, there's definitely that sense of bleak beauty, "Come, my brothers, one last drink before we hack each other to pieces! The skalds will long sing of this day!" that I remember so well.

With that being said, I know she has a strong interest in Norse mythology (which we also saw in Companion to Wolves and that she was involved in a... debacle about race in the fandom community, and that makes me wonder a little about her overall ideas about race - my only reservation.

Title: Silent on the Moor. (It's when you use the same naming convention to title your second book as your first than you start down the road to trouble. Silent in the Grave was a great title, Silent in the Sanctuary was okay. If anyone in this particular book had been silent, it would have been a relief! The author has apparently given up with the fourth book, called Dark Road to Darjeeling.)
Author: Deanna Raybourn
Series: Lady Julia Grey, book three
Genre: Historical mystery
Setting: ... the moor. I actually don't really like books set on the moor most of the time. Too bleak.
Reason for Reading: I enjoyed the first two, and the fact that the next book in the series is set in India made me want to read this one.
Finished In: Weeks, perhaps two of them.
Pages: 465
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: A woman leans back into a man's embrace before a beautiful sunset. If they really are on the moor, her outfit leaves her in severe danger of catching a chill. Does no one realize that corsets were UNDERGARMENTS in this time period??
First line: "Julia Gray, I would rather see you hanged than watch any sister of mine go haring off after a man who will not have her," my brother Bellmont raged.
Best part: Some movement in the love interest plotline.
Worst part: Oh, how to choose. The heroine's impassioned speech about how two people shouldn't be married because she doesn't think they'll make each other happy bugged me. It was very anachronistic - people didn't used to look to marriage for those things. There was also a plot twist, held in suspense for many chapters, that was totally obvious to me from almost the beginning.
Imaginary Theme Song: Something bleak and classical.
Grade: C-. The book's flaws detracted from my enjoyment of it.
Recommended for: I don't feel I can recommend it very strongly.
Related Reads: Silent In the Grave, the first book in the series. Cut to the Quick by Kate Ross.
snugglekitty: (book magic)
Title: The Masqueraders
Author: Georgette Heyer
Genre: YA Regency romance
Setting: The London of balls and carriage rides.
Reason for Reading: I like Heyer a lot in general and read her when I'm feeling low; my sister recommended this specific title.
Finished In: Months, actually, which is funny considering how fast-paced the second half of the book is.
Pages: 409
Copyright Date: 1928
Cover: A brightly lit ball. A slight man in a domino mask speaks to a slighter dark-haired woman. Behind them, a large man whispers in the ear of a tall woman.
First line: "It had begun to rain an hour ago, a fine driving mist with the sky grey above."
Best part: The complicated character of the protagonist's father. She wrote him really, really well.
Worst part: You really want me to believe that the protagonists are completely unrecognizable just by dint of being in drag? Sigh.
Imaginary Theme Song: "When a Special Girlfriend" by Ute Lemper (from the Kissing Jessica Stein soundtrack)
Grade: B+. Not going to change the world, but SOOOO enjoyable.
Recommended for: Really, any fans of YA should read Heyer, and this is my favorite Heyer so far.

Title: Twilight's Dawn
Author: Anne Bishop
Series: Black Jewels #9 (Milking those bestsellers for all they're worth...)
Genre: Dark fantasy.
Setting: The Blood realm
Reason for Reading: I saw it on the "new fiction speed read" shelf at the library and went "Score!" I didn't even know she had a new book out.
Finished In: Days, and not many of them.
Pages: 435
Copyright Date: 2011
Cover: By Larry Rostant, who has done the covers for most of the recent books in this series. It shows a woman in a teal dress and dark cloak wearing a shimmering jewel. She stands in a winter landscape. Her expression is reserved.
First line: "Daemon Sadi, the Black-Jeweled Warlord Prince of Dhemlan, crossed the bridge that marked the boundary between private property and public land."
Best part: Much to my surprise, Bishop took a BIG risk with this book, in her story "The High Lord's Daughter." That was brave and unexpected of her as far as I'm concerned, and I think it paid off.
Worst part: Okay, so Bishop has gotten really into Sceltie dogs in the last few years. But do they have to be in ALL her stories now? I don't really see the charm.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Down to You", the Luciana Souza cover
Grade: B.
Recommended for: Fans of the series will really not want to miss this one. Those who are new to Bishop should start with Daughter of the Blood.
Related Reads: Dreams Made Flesh, the previous anthology in the series. Sebastien, the first book in the Ephemera duology by the same author.
snugglekitty: (bookbabe)
Title: Thresholds
Author: Nina Kiriki HoffmanN
Series: None.
Genre: Modern fantasy.
Setting: Spores Ferry, Oregon, which seems to be based on an actual ferry, though not an actual town.
Reason for Reading: I really like this author and try to keep an eye out for her new books.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 243
Copyright Date: 2010
Cover: A young androgynous figure looks at a glowing shape in her hand. There are stars behind her.
First line: "It was Maya's second week in the new house."
Best part: The descriptions of art in the book - sketches and music.
Worst part: The sinking feeling that the main character was getting herself into a lot of trouble.
Imaginary Theme Song: I'll Fly Away
Grade: B
Recommended for: Fans of YA fantasy, people curious about YA fantasy.
Related Reads: A Red Heart of Memories by the same other. Saffy's Angel by Hilary Mackay.

(Note: I am many books behind in my reviewing at the moment. If I post more than two or three reviews today I'll start putting subsequent ones behind cuts so I don't overtake your friends page.)

Title: The Walls of Air
Author: Barbara Hambly
Series: Darwath Trilogy, Book 2
Genre: Alternate universe fantasy.
Setting: The kingdom of Darwath. Our two main characters are still from SoCal but Earth is only present in their dreams.
Reason for Reading: The first book was really good.
Finished In: Days. Maybe a week total.
Pages: 297
Copyright Date:
Cover: Looks like something out of Star Wars. Obi-Wan and Leia are standing in front of a holoscreen. Leia has a sword and staff in her hands.
First line: "The setting was the Shamrock Bar in San Bernadino on a rainy Saturday night."
Best part: I continue to find the ongoing political intrigue in this series of great interest.
Worst part: The plot twist near the end seemed very obvious to me.
Imaginary Theme Song: "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, but only because "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto" doesn't have a song AFAIK.
Grade: B-
Recommended for: I think fantasy fans should give this series a look, but it should definitely be read from the beginning.
Related Reads: The Time of the Dark by the same author.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: Batwoman: Elegy
Author: Greg Rucka, JH Williams III, and others at DC Comics
Series: Batwoman graphic novels
Genre: Comics, superheros
Setting: Gotham City
Reason for Reading: It was on the list of the best graphic novels of 2010, and I was also interested that the main character is a veteran kicked out of the service for being gay. It's awesome that this concept will likely become dated in a few years.
Finished In: Hours.
Pages: 192, including covers and bonus material.
Copyright Date: July 2010
Cover: Batwoman with a crazed-looking doll behind her. They are caught within the bat shape.
First panel: No text, just Batwoman swooping down on a cable with her teeth bared.
Best part: I liked the art and the parts that were about the main character's orientation.
Worst part: Some of the rest of it was confusing and hard to follow, at least to me. Maybe that wouldn't be true if I had read more Batwoman graphic novels.
Imaginary Theme Song: "We Are the Champions" by Queen
Grade: C+
Recommended for: People interested in gay superheros. What, you're not?
Related Reads: Hero by Tyler Perry (though that is not in graphic format). Fun Home by Alison Bechdel (though it is not about a superhero).

Woo hoo, finally I'm done reviewing the last of the 2010 books! Hopefully I'll even get to catch up soon.

Title: Trio of Sorcery
Author: Mercedes Lackey
Genre: Novella (three).
Setting: Boston in the seventies, the rez in the 90s, and the world of gamers today.
Reason for Reading: I'm kind of addicted to Lackey. Surely you've noticed by now.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 352
Copyright Date: 2010
Cover: Faint outline of a woman in a dress looking over her shoulder. It's unusually styled for a Lackey cover - generally they're more representational.
First line: "As apartments went, it wasn't much; a third-floor studio that had as its main attractions the fact that it was within walking distance of Harvard Square and the University, and that it had a fireplace."
Best part: I enjoyed seeing Diana Tregarde again. I didn't think Lackey would revisit the character - she said she wouldn't after the death threats she got from crazed wannabe Guardians - glad she changed her mind.
Worst part: MAJOR transphobia in one of the stories.
Imaginary Theme Song: "That Old Black Magic"
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Those desiring fluff! If you're interested in Lackey's modern-ish works it's not a bad place to start.
Related Reads: Children of the Night and Sacred Ground by Lackey; I'm sure a book featuring the new protagonist of the third novella is in the offing. Many Bloody Returns and the other anthologies in that series.

(Just one more 2010 book to go, woo hoo!)
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: The Way to Glory
Author: David Drake
Series: Lt. Leary, book four
Genre: Space opera
Setting: Cinnabar and other parts of Drake's imaginary space empire.
Reason for Reading: Totally addicted to the series. Couldn't stop if I tried.
Finished In: Days.
Pages: 526
Copyright Date: 2007 (Alas, the publication dates are moving towards the present. I am reading them much faster than he can write them!)
Cover:
First line: "The pair of footmen at the head of the stairs bowed to Daniel; the older one said 'Senator Kearned will be most pleased that you're able to attend, Lieutenant Leary.'"
Best part: I liked seeing some development with Leary's dysfunctional family; I find it interesting.
Worst part: The characterization in this book of my favorite sociopath (Tovera) seemed a little out of tune.
Imaginary Theme Song: La Marseilles
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Fans of the series (who won't be able to help themselves anyway).
Related Reads: With the Lightnings, first book in the series.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: Troubled Waters
Author: Sharon Shinn
Series: If I know my favorite romantic fantasy writer, it's the start of one.
Genre: Romantic fantasy.
Setting: Mostly the city of Chialto, capital of an imaginary land.
Reason for Reading: I pretty much read everything that Shinn writes.
Finished In: Days. That was as much as I could pace myself.
Pages: 391
Copyright Date: 2010
Cover: A woman rising from green waves. Her hair and clothing are mysteriously dry.
First line: "Navarr Ardelay's body was laid to rest in a blazing pyre, as befit a sweela man who owed his allegiance to flame."
Best part: Sharon Shinn wrote gay boys! Oh, Sharon, I'm so proud of you.
Worst part: Some of the plot twists made little sense to me.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" - Elton John and Kiki Dee
Grade: C+
Recommended for: This would make a good introduction to Shinn's work, especially for those who are curious about romantic fantasy.
Related Reads: General Winston's Daughter by the same author. The Blending books by Sharon Green (which I'll admit I didn't like).

Three more titles, and I'll be done logging my 2010 reads!
snugglekitty: (hourglass book)
I am a bit behind in posting reviews - there are four more books I finished in 2010. I hope to post them all within the next few days.

My total number of books read for the year is 64. This goes to show that 2010 sucked a very great deal - what is normal for me is to read at least a hundred new books every year. (I don't count rereads in my total.) Of these, seven displayed excellence sufficient to earn the grade of A. All of these were fiction; I didn't read much nonfiction this year. Here they are, with the overly specific award categories you've come to love.

Best Children's Book I Should Have Read Decades Ago: Peter Pan by JM Barrie. I had seen and heard many variations on this story and the classic original leaves them all in the dust. If you haven't read it, you should.

Best Platonic Character Pairing: With the Lightnings by David Drake. Adele is a librarian with a past. Daniel is a lieutenant in a space navy. These two could save the galaxy - if they don't kill each other first!

Best Coming of Age Fantasy: Lord of the Changing Winds by Rachel Neumeier. Surprising plot twists and complicated interpersonal dynamics will keep you guessing in this riveting tale of griffins.

Best Fantasy Set in a Sightless Society: Darkborn by Alison Sinclair. Lady Telmaine Hearne has a secret. She has the gift of magic - something that could ruin her reputation in the society of the Darkborn. But this gift may be the only thing that can save her family when the city of Minhorne falls into chaos.

Best Fantasy Series Conclusion: Treason's Shore by Sherwood Smith. Inda is back at the side of his friend Evred, now the Marlovan king. The fleet he raised to stop the pirates is the only chance the Marlovans have against the Venn invaders. But will Evred know when to end the war?

Best Black, White, and Red Illustrated YA Fantasy Collection: Lips Touch Three Times by Laini Taylor Three different fairy tale retellings center around kisses. This book would be worth it for the illustrations alone.

Best Serious Science Fiction: Fool's War by Sarah Zettel. Artificial intelligence, what makes us human, forgiveness, and prejudice are some of the themes of this thoughtful book.


In addition to these seven titles, four also earned a grade of B+: The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall, Lt. Leary Commanding by David Drake, Storm Witch by Violette Malan, and Crossover by Joel Shepherd.

ETA: See the best books of 2009 here.

Title: Carpe Jugulum
Author: Terry Pratchett
Series: Discworld #23
Genre: Comedic fantasy
Setting: The small town of Lancre
Reason for Reading: Sometimes you just need Pratchett.
Finished In: Weeks, because I didn't want it to end.
Pages: 378
Copyright Date: 1998
Cover: A black coach flying in front of the moon, drawn by horses wearing plumes. The horses and plumes are also black.
First line: "Through the shredded black clouds a fire moved like a dying star, falling back to earth -- the earth, that is, of Discworld -- but unlike any star had ever done before, it sometimes managed to steer its fall, sometimes rising, sometimes twisting, but inevitably heading down." (Yes, I know that sentence makes no sense.)
Best part: It was funny, and it had an Igor in it.
Worst part: Hmm, I wanted to see more character development from Agnes.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Bella Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus. It would have to be, since that was written as a joke.
Grade: C+. I would read it again but I didn't love it to pieces.
Recommended for: Fans of the country parts of Discworld, for sure.
Related Reads: My favorite Discworld book, Reaper Man.

Title: Messenger of Truth
Author: Jacqueline Winspear
Series: Maisie Dobbs book 4
Genre: Historical mystery
Setting: England in the twenties.
Reason for Reading: I really enjoy this series, and for me, it's a good time of year for light reading.
Finished In: Days.
Pages: 322 plus discussion questions.
Copyright Date: 2006
Cover: A woman wearing a coat and hat looks out to sea. Sailboats are anchored behind her and the waves look choppy.
First line: "The taxi-cab slowed down alongside the gates of Camden Abbey, a red brick former mansion that seemed even more like a refuge as a bitter sleet swept across the gray, forbidding landscape."
Best part: I enjoyed the descriptions of the family and homes of the artist whose death Maisie investigates in this installment.
Worst part: There was a place where I thought I saw where the author was going with a subplot, and where she went with it was not as interesting as my idea.
Imaginary Theme Song: Something from a speakeasy.
Grade: C+
Recommended for: If you are interested in the art of World War I you'd probably find this book a good piece.
Related Reads: Maisie Dobbs by the same author (book one in the series), and Night Watch by Sarah Waters.

Who is the messenger of truth, and what tidings do they carry? Is it a young artist, dead perhaps by accident, his masterpiece yet to be revealed to the public? Is it his sister, the journalist who exposed the war her brother fought in, who believes his death was no accident at all? Is it the indomitable investigator Maisie Dobbs, worrying away at the secrets hidden at the heart of their family?

I enjoyed this book though I don't think it's Winspear's best.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: The Far Side of the Stars
Author: David Drake
Series: Lt. Leary, book three
Genre: Space opera, military sf
Setting: Mostly a lightly settled part of the galaxy called "the North."
Reason for Reading: These books increase my cope. I need more cope.
Finished In: Weeks, one and a half of them I believe.
Pages: 514
Copyright Date: 2003 (it still just kills me these books were out so long without my being aware of them)
Cover: Looks like a man driving a tank while wearing a spacesuit. He looks awfully relaxed, especially considering that something seems to be blowing up behind him.
First line: "Adele Mundy wore for the first time her white Republic of Cinnabar Navy dress uniform."
Best part: This book showed some of the first serious encounters between our daring duo (full of derring-do) and events shaped by spirituality and superstition. Really interesting.
Worst part: I found it to be less fast-paced than the previous two.
Imaginary Theme Song: If the poem Ulysses was set to music I'd recommend that.
Grade: B
Recommended for: Fans of the series won't be able to resist. Those who aren't will wonder why we care. And that about sums it up.
Related Reads: With the Lightnings, which is book one. Grimspace by Ann Aguirre.

Title: Bayou Moon
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: The Edge, Book 2
Genre: Hillbilly fantasy. (The opposite of urban fantasy, in a way.)
Setting: The swamp between the Broken (where science works) and the Weird (where magic works).
Reason for Reading: I enjoyed the first book and I need distraction.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 447, plus a preview of the new Magic book.
Copyright Date: October 2010
Cover: A woman with a glowing sword leans against a tree. Or else she's randomly sticking her butt out. Behind her is a sort of transparent guy with a quiver strapped to his naked manly chest.
First line: "William sipped some beer from the bottle of Modelo Especial and gave the Green Arrow his hard stare."
Best part: The little moments between the love interests.
Worst part: One of the protagonists had played a very different role in the previous book, and the shifts weren't sufficiently explained in my view.
Imaginary Theme Song: Proud Mary
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Those who like the Andrews writing team should not miss this title.
Related Reads: On the Edge, the first book in the series. Enchantment Emporium by Tanya Huff.

Title: Lt. Leary, Commanding
Author: David Drake
Series: Lt. Leary #2
Genre: Space opera, military sci fi
Setting: A galaxy far, far away...
Reason for Reading: In times of stress, space opera helps me cope.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 576
Copyright Date: 2001 (I can't believe these books were around for so long without me even hearing a whisper about them! It's tragic.)
Cover: A sallow woman in front of a computer, a man in a spacesuit.
First line: "Lieutenant Daniel Leary rolled his uncle's wheelchair to the end of the catwalk and paused, gazing back at the corvette Princess Cecile nestled in the center of the graving dock."
Best part: I enjoyed especially the further developments in Adele and Daniel's personal lives.
Worst part: I'll admit the transitions between on-planet and off-planet portions of the book were a little choppy.
Imaginary Theme Song: My creative juices aren't flowing. Sorry, I've got nothing.
Grade: B+
Recommended for: Space opera fans should really check out this series. I think it would even work to pick up with book two if that's how you roll.
Related Reads: The first book, With the Lightnings. Conflict of Honors by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. On Basilisk Station by David Weber.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: With the Lightnings
Author: David Drake
Series: Lieutenant Leary #1
Genre: Space opera, military sf
Setting: The imaginary planet of Kostroma, and surrounds.
Reason for Reading: This was a recommendation from my sweetie [livejournal.com profile] gentlescholar.
Finished In: Days. I hated to read the last chapter.
Pages: 416
Copyright Date: 1999
Cover: A man, a woman, a spaceship, a planet, and lots of purple.
First line: "Lieutenant Daniel Leary ambled through the streets of Kostroma City in the black-piped gray 2nd class uniform of the Republic of Cinnabar Navy."
Best part: As [livejournal.com profile] gentlescholar suggested, the character of Adele Mundy, more specifically described as Super Librarian.
Worst part: There was something that the plot led me to expect which didn't happen, and not in a good way - more like the author didn't think of it. I can't say more than that without giving things away but it was a weird feeling.
Imaginary Theme Song: "The Librarian Song" by Joe Uveges
Grade: A!
Recommended for: Fans of space operas and libraries.
Related Reads: The Tomorrow Log by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. The Prince Roger series by David Weber and John Ringo.

Adele Mundy is an exile from her home planet. Her noble house was slaughtered and her last refuge is obscurity. But this dueling librarian has a few more tricks up her sleeve...

Lieutenant Danial Leary is another kind of exile. Estranged from his politically powerful father, shuffled into makework positions, he spends his nights drinking and wenching. It would take a true crisis to show his mettle...

The planet of Kostroma is caught between two noble houses within and two powerful galactic empires without. But no one could have expected the wild cards about to be played by an unlikely pair who refuse to accept defeat.

This book is really quite fantastic and you should all read it.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: The Agency: A Spy in the House
Author: YS Lee
Series: The Agency book one
Genre: YA
Setting: Victorian London
Reason for Reading: I saw a review which mentioned the setting and the fact that the protagonist is a teenage woman of color and, well, I couldn't resist.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 335
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: A woman in period dress walks down a cobblestone street. Her skirts are in her hands and she has an excited expression on her face.
First line: "She should have been listening to the judge."
Best part: This book is fast-paced and exciting, with a believable and interesting main character.
Worst part: A predictable plot twist disappointed me toward the end.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Just a Girl" by No Doubt
Grade: B
Recommended for: Fans of YA fiction won't want to miss it.
Related Reads: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig, Cotillion by Georgette Heyer, The Season by Sarah McLean.
snugglekitty: (Default)
Title: The Loving Dead
Author: Amelia Beamer
Genre: It's not quite horror. It's more like zombie fiction.
Setting: San Francisco in the present day.
Reason for Reading: It was on the "new sf" shelf at the library, and the blurb from Christopher Moore on the front cover sold me.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 241, plus a quote and an author bio
Copyright Date: 2010
Cover: Not very evocative. Shows the faces of two people on the edge of an embrace. One is a zombie, by her gray skin and white eyes. The other is human. The tones of the cover are brown with red spatters.
First line: "The sun had set by the time Kate left the belly dance class."
Best part: How could you not love zombies vs. hipsters? I mean, seriously.
Worst part: It doesn't feel like a sequel would make sense.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Living Dead Girl" by Rob Zombie
Grade: B
Recommended for: Not just zombie fans, but folks like myself who have felt themselves a little puzzled by the zombie craze.
Related Media: I think the movies Zombieland and Zombie Strippers have a lot in common with this book. I have read very little zombie literature so I don't know what to suggest on that front.
