Consumption of Magic (Tales From Verania #3) by TJ Klune
Book Reviews , Coming Soon / November 19, 2017

I will be able to download my preorder from Dreamspinner Press in less than two hours!!!! So I have yet to write a review of this series, and I really, really should. I fucking LOVE these books. The Consumption of Magic is book three in this series and it is releasing Nov 20th. I can’t wait. This is possibly the funniest, most awesome series, I have ever read. No kidding. Author TJ Klune’s writing, in general, makes me laugh out loud every single time, but these books, holy crap! I could write an epic poem to their awesomeness and it still wouldn’t come close to explaining how very much I have enjoyed these books. So if you haven’t read the series, go do that. Right now. Seriously. Here is the link to the whole Tales from Verania series. There are wizards, and hornless gay unicorn best friends, and sweet half giants and pervy dragons. There are Fairy-Drag Mother’s and actual fairies too. Also- In book 1, The Lightning-Struck Heart, there is so much angsty love that you will scream. There is so much heartbreak that you will cry, (because TJ Klune is a bastard like that) and so much sass that you can’t read this…

Trial, Tribulation, Triumph (Appearances Trilogy)

Penny’s Rating: B If the ghost of Ayn Rand ever decided to write gay romance novels, they might go something like this. Welcome to the elite society of Atlanta. Where problems of oppression are solved by money and some kick-ass lawyering. Not only that, but insta-love exists, bad people get punished, and capitalism really works, even for kids who just want summer jobs mowing the lawn. Libertarians everywhere will rejoice, and closeted doomsday preppers will squeal with glee. So….this series (The Appearances Trilogy by Etienne), probably doesn’t sound like your typical HEA gay romance. And it’s not. Most of us are not so fortunate as to live in a world where money is not an issue,  I know I certainly don’t, but like everyone, I wouldn’t mind living there someday either. TRIAL, TRIBULATION, and TRIUMPH were absolutely fascinating to me not only thanks to the compelling plot, but also as an anthropological study of a slice of our wealthier American society that really does exist, but is completely different from the America that I inhabit. Note: I am reviewing all 3 books in this post, so if you’re worried about spoilers for the book you have not read…don’t look down…
