Hello happy readers! So today I have a quick review for you of a novella that falls between the first book I reviewed last year and the sequel set to come out later in 2018 and my Monthly Wrap-Up to follow. Lots happening. I had some type of bug at the start of the week and it got me way off track but again just going to work hard to get back on top of things. That said lots of listening and reading happening and right now my thoughts on Moonlight and Midtown (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum #1.5) by Christina Bauer. I previously reviewed book one in this new series Wolves and Roses and there will be spoilers for it to follow as that is how series work!
This is a quick novella read that follows the events of Wolves and Roses and how things were left off. Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life away from her evil aunties and her curse. She has a new man, who is literally her dream guy, and about to attend a regular school with her bestie. Sounds great. Accept her wolf side takes some effort to get used to and it has ruined her wardrobe. Oh and there are some sketchy things happening in the city and with magic as a whole. Her life is far from boring.
I liked the little insight to follow up with these characters. Bryar, Knox, Elle, and Alec are great fun. I liked that Bry wasn’t instantly okay with and good at all this power that she uncovered. She has to learn to handle it and that also means ruining some clothing along the way. But hey perfect reason for a shopping trip with the bestie. We get to see some more bonding with Bry and Knox which is always fun because Knox is pretty awesome with her and he tough exterior and soft center only for her. This really was a novella so not a ton to say just that it gives some depth to the characters in the aftermath both fun and not so fun moments as well as building up more of the world and the issues they face. I can’t wait for the next full book set to come out later this year, Shifters and Glyphs.
Until next time…
