Review: Burning Up

07 Feb

Burning Up (Includes: The Iron Seas, Prequel; Children of the Sea, #3.5; Psy/Changeling #8.5)Burning Up by Angela Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Of the four authors who were published in this anthology, I’d only read one prior to this (Nalini Singh), but I will definately be checking out the other three in the future.

Singh continues her psy-changling series with a changling/human pairing – Ria is a half-american-half-chinese who is being stalked by a gang that is trying to take over a section of her town, Emmett is the changling who saved her life. Wow, talk about an explosive combo – i was fanning myself a few times – loved the secondary characters (including the grandmother).

Knight pairs a vampire with a woman with magical abilities in an effort to stop a magical wall from coming down. At first I wasn’t sure about this one, but ended up enjoying it and will be seeking more books out by her in the future.

Kantra continues with her children of the sea series – this one focusing on a woman who is finfolk and how she found her love. I’ve had a book by Kantra sitting on the pile for a while and it has now been elevated slightly higher on the TBR.

Brooks introduced the characters in his Iron Duke series with this prequel. I’ve heard so much hype about this author that I was skeptical about whether I would enjoy the Iron Duke, so I didn’t buy it until trying out the series in this book – wow! this was really my introduction to the steampunk genre and I will def. be seeking out more in the future. I’ve already bought The Iron Duke and look forward to reading it.
