Genre: Urban Fantasy
I love this series; I love it even more than the Mercy Thompson series. I think it’s because I find Charles far more interesting than Adam.
Burn Bright ticked all the right boxes for me too; its entire setting was in Aspen Creek, which was a nice change from the previous books, where they were always somewhere new, with a new cast of supporting characters each time. In Burn Bright,we get more information about the Marrok’s pack, and a smidgen more insight into Bran (some of it I’m not sure I like knowing – tiny bit of ick). I also enjoyed the small mysteries to solve along the way that aded up to the big plot point – I felt like it kept the pace fast without feeling ridiculous.
Each of the books in this series and the Mercy Thompson series all work together, each one contributing to one of many over-arching plots she’s got developing in this universe. It makes it impossible to be able to recommend reading this series out of order, or honestly, without reading the Mercy Thompson series as well. The latter isn’t strictly necessary, but it’ll definitely enhance the reading experience.
