Today is the first day of the Sneaky Kitty Critic’s ‘Thank You!!’ book faire for the super friendly people who helped spread word of Grave Humor! All prices listed are at time of posting. We will tell you if we’ve read the book or not!
Most of the books featured will be in the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance genres, although we, with some help from the female, will be featuring titles from other genres. Some authors just shared the book because they wanted to, so we have chosen to randomly select a book from their catalogue to showcase. (We’ll tell you when we do that.)
Mostly, this list is in no particular order, except for the first one, because she’s our soul sister and we are shamelessly biased.
Skinwalker (Faith Hunter) is the first novel of the Jane Yellowrock series. It’s dark. It’s gritty. It’s one of the female’s favorites. Jane is a bit of a bitch, too. But Beast is the best hunter, and we really just can’t recommend this one enough. This is a series you’ll want to give at least three books to really get a feel for it. Push through! It is worth it. $7.99.
Meet shapeshifting skinwalker Jane Yellowrock in the first novel in the New York Times bestselling series that captures “the essence of urban fantasy” (SF Site).
Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind—a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she’s been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katies’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps.
Amidst a bordello full of real “ladies of the night,” and a hot Cajun biker with a panther tattoo who stirs her carnal desire, Jane must stay focused and complete her mission—or else the next skin she’ll need to save just may be her own…
Gift of Shadows (Amir Lane) is a supernatural suspense / urban fantasy novel. We has not read this one, but the cover is pretty and it is in Kindle Unlimited! We have checked the book out because it is in KU. Fun Fact: Amir is the female’s grandmonster, forcibly adopted because Amir lacked a grandmonstermother type. We are fairly certain humans are strange beasts. Amir is adorkable. $2.99.
What, humans? Were you expecting a lot of seriousness from us? We’re working with a picture and a text box. We’re cats. We’re here for the fun.
Why would anyone try to murder a phoenix?
A corpse with no eyes bursts into flames before Toronto’s Special Crimes Detective Fairuz Arshad can investigate. Her superiors are ordering her to close the case before it’s even been opened, and it isn’t the only one. She tracks down a siren and a faerie, both missing organs and brushed off by the police. Fairuz and her dryad partner, Rowan, suspect there’s more to this mystery than it appears. The evidence points to a string of parahuman murders, with all the victims missing organs.
The police are covering up the crimes, and Fairuz realizes the killer may be one of their own. As Rowan joins the ranks of those keeping secrets from her, the list of people Fairuz trusts grows smaller. More bodies are uncovered, and she fears something far more sinister is at work than a simple serial killer.
With her own team turning against her, can Fairuz catch the killer before he strikes again?
To Kill a Fae (C.S. Wilde) is a supernatural suspense/urban fantasy. It contains smexy (and violent) content meant for mature audiences, so any kiddos shouldn’t be clicking this one. We can’t lie. This cover is so adorkable the female checked it out in KU. Will she read it? We’re hoping so… the female has been very weird about her reading habits lately. $3.99.
Fae like to play dangerous games…
In detective Mera Maurea’s experience, three things motivate a murder: secrets, convenience, or passion. But none of the three can explain why the Summer King is dead.
With a tight deadline hanging over her head, Mera has to figure out who’s the culprit before the frail balance that holds the nation of Tagrad together crumbles into dust.
To aid her—or turn her life into a living hell, hard to tell which—is her fae partner Sebastian Dhay, a snarky detective with a penchant for the illegal. He’s a volatile wild card who will do anything to solve the murder, even if it means his doom.
The clock is ticking. And Mera is hiding a deadly secret of her own.
The Darkest Night (Gena Showalter) is a smexy paranormal romance. We haven’t read any of these, humans, but we’re going to start with this one because that tatt and manback is so more intriguing than manchest. Don’t get us wrong, humans: we like manchest, but manback is currently an endangered species. $6.99.
Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive—and unimaginably powerful… Don’t miss a single book in this stunning paranormal series from New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter!
All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she’ll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member—a man trapped in a hell of his own.
Neither can resist the instant hunger that calms their torments…and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction—and a soul-shattering test of love…
A Note from the Sneaky Kitty Critic: The female has never met/spoken with Gena before, and the share of Grave Humor on her page came as a total (and amazing) surprise. So, thank you, Gena!
The female has admired Gena’s career from afar for a long time, and she is using this as an excuse to try one of Gena’s series.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the first installment of our Book Faire! We shall be back tomorrow with more delicious books! (We will post 4 or more titles a day for the rest of the week, so we hope you enjoy checking out the various offerings, humans!)
Now the female must go conquer Booked for Murder. It’s putting up a fight.
Damned feral books everywhere!
Side-note: The female has made a vow to play at least one hour of Sims 4 every day. So far, so good. She is working on an eclectic author house which she absolutely loves. It has a pretty but strange exterior. She is not good at house design, but don’t tell her that. She’s having a good time regardless.
The male gave the female carnations because roses try to kill her! They are in her favorite color. The fluffy llama-corn was a gift from her friend Diana.
I concur, the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter is fantastic. The deeper you get into it the better you understand Jane too, and she is overall an admirable character.
I have read all the Faith Hunter books Jane is such a complex character and I adore Beast. I love Gena
Showalter she just gets better ,waiting for the next ones out.
Enjoyed the post from a “different” viewpoint. Some interesting books highlighted.
Try looking on Pinterest under SIMS 4 House Plans. Apparently my daughter was having the same issues with her houses so that’s where her friend suggest she look, she says she’s found some pretty good ideas.
I can vouch for Faith and Gena, and am intrigued enough to try the other books. Good covers are hard to come by!
