I didn’t know much about Ivory and Bone going into it other than it had a hint of a Pride and Prejudice (P&P) and it was set in a prehistoric timeframe. So I was like okay, we’ll see how this goes, and I really enjoyed the story. It has the heart of P&P and the weight the time period deserves.

So why is My Lady Jane the best thing ever, well let me explain. The book is historical fiction fantasy, how awesome is that? The authors have taken the Catholic/Protestant division that existed in 1500s and replaced it with an E∂ian (Protestants)/Verities (Catholics) division.

Hollywood Witch Hunter is one of those fun urban fantasy books that doesn’t take itself too seriously and just has fun with the genera. I don’t always like a lot of pop culture references or specific locations from where the book is set, but Tejeda does a great job of it. She makes it all part of the world that is Hollywood and the feel of the story reminds me of Veronica Mars or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, dark, but not too dark, funny, but not too funny… you get the idea, it’s that nice middle ground that’s so hard to find.
