Sunday Funday: Mini Reviews - Craven Street (ARC), The Witchkin Murders (ARC), & Dark Magic



Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I'm sharing three mini reviews with you: Craven Street (Whitechapel Paranormal Society #0.5) by E.J. Stevens (released June 25th, 2019), The Witchkin Murders (Magicfall #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis (available June 7th, 2019), and Dark Magic (Online Kingdom #2) by Jakob Tanner (released February 5th, 2019).  Thank you very much to NetGalley for providing me with ARCs of Craven Street and The Witchkin Murders and Jakob Tanner for Dark Magic in exchange for my honest reviews.  Read on to see my thoughts on these two books:


❋ ❋ 

Craven Street (Whitechapel Paranormal Society #0.5) by E.J. Stevens is a good little novella for fans of gothic mysteries with a dash of fantasy. It goes quick and the world that Stevens has created is very atmospheric, but I have to admit I felt somewhat out of the loop. There's much more I'd like to know about the world the characters inhabit. This is my first time reading anything by the author and this has gotten me interested enough to come back for more in the future.

My review can also be found on Goodreads.



❋ ❋  

The Witchkin Murders (Magicfall #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis is a cool urban fantasy series opener. I especially loved getting to know the new rules of our world since the event called Magicfall when the supernatural world declared war on humans and rained down magic on them changing everything up in a massive way. Kayla used to be a great detective, but now she is a scavenger and a witchkin who's no longer quite human. The magic system that the author has created is very cool and I liked seeing how it blended into the human world, especially when it comes to the technomages. Overall, I couldn't get enough of this addictive series opener. It's my first book from Francis and it certainly won't be my last.

❋ ❋  

Dark Magic (Arcane Kingdom Online #2) by Jakob Tanner is a great follow up to The Chosen. I'm so glad I started this LitRPG series because Clay's story has really hooked me. This installment takes up right after book one ends and it does a good job of expanding the world of the game that Clay now calls home particularly through the quests he, Serena, and Shade take on for the king. It's quite similar to book one, but we begin to learn more and more background on the game itself and its developers. Overall, though, the author's style flows a little better and we already know the cast and the key points of their world. If you enjoyed The Chosen, Radioactive Evolution by Richard Hummel, and Aaru by David Meredith, you'll have to continue this series. I can't wait to read continue this The Fallen City after that ending. I can't wait to see where it's going to all go. Thanks again, Mr. Tanner!
