Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clarke (Young adult fantasy)
Liked it very much. This is the first of a trilogy that is a prequel to the authors "The Immortal Instruments" trilogy. It is set in Victorian, England and the author manages to convey the feeling of the era very well.
Beast Behaving Badly by Shelly Larenston (Adult Urban Fantasy)
This is one funny book. The author has one incredible sense of humour which when it flows it works wonderfully. This is book can be read as a stand alone of part of a loosely based series about shape shifters. There is sexual content in this book that goes beyond the normal romance boundaries. The author started her career in e books so be warned. Still who could not love a story about an OCD hockey player who can turn into polar bear/lion hybrid and his potential love interest who is part wolf and wild dog. Its hockey vs roller derby.
I started reading Robin Owens when she published Hear Mate and read the next 4 books in the series but she is slow writer and for some reason switched to beeing published in a large book format and I refuse to pay $15.00 for a paperback book. Anyway I got a good deal on Amazon.com and read Heart Fate, Heart Change and Heart Journey. I enjoyed the books so much that I pulled out the first 5 in the series and reread them. Sometimes the author does not put enough conflict in the books but over all I really like her world of Celta, flair and sentient houses and spaceships and lets not forget Fams.
