Book Review: Magic Brew: Edge Chronicles by T. Rae Mitchell

Magic Brew: Edge Chronicles
by T. Rae Mitchell
July 20th 2015
298 pages

Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy
They call me Edge, and I’m the only supernatural in New York City with Djinn powers. My gang is known as the Forsaken. We’re the throwaways of our kind, despised by purebloods for being mixed breeds. Banishment, rejection and abandonment bind us. Yet our differences are what make us powerful, and close to unstoppable. Until today.
We’ve been double-crossed. The one person we trusted above all others, lured us into a trap set by a gang of warlocks. They've crippled my powers and tried to enslave me for the rare magic pumping in my veins. I gave them the slip, but now there’s a price on my head and the road home is blocked by gangs of shifters, witches, vampires, demons and deadly fae. Odds are good we won’t all make it back alive. But you can be damn sure, me and my crew won’t go down without a fight.

Enter a dystopian underworld of supernatural gangs and prepare for an action-packed, paranormal adventure filled with sorcery, treachery and forbidden romance.

Book one of a series always has some kinks (not that kind!). And Magic Brew's were in information overload. The world the author created has lot of potential for magical action and interesting characters. But it seems we meet every single one of them in the first book. The plot is pretty much one long car chase, except instead of cars, they are on motorcycles and on foot. Edge and his group of friends are trying to get from one end of Manhattan's supernatural-gang infested city to the other without getting killed. The city is divided into territories run by different gangs:
Forsaken - melting pot of the unwanted (Edge's gang with 11 memebers)
The Badhats - witchborn, warlocks, males only
Dreads - witchborn, females only
Harlem Carnies - ghouls
Hellhounds - werehyenas
Bonegrinders - redcaps, males only
Pink Ladies - unseelie pixies, female only
Black Widows - vampires, female only
Gray Boys - Japanese Shadow Elves - males only,
Mechs  - ghost sorcerers, corpses animated with magically imbued mechanics
Nekros - waif wights
Mayhems - demon goblins, male only

That is twelve gangs...each with their own colors, dress and powers. If our protags had dealt with only a handful of these instead of all of them and the others were left shadowed in mystery till the next books, I think it would have been easier to follow.

Not only are there lots of gangs, but Edge belongs to the Forsaken gang...there are eleven members! And we meet them all.

It is well written and has all the required urban fantasy elements and falls into the type of urban fantasy guys like (not that women don't, but there is a difference). You just need a score card to keep up. The author does include gang stats at the end of the book.

New Book Releases in Speculative Fiction for March 29

I haven't had the time to put together a release day list in while...this is a light week for releases. If I forgot something let me know and I'll add it!

Book Review: The Visitor (Graveyard Queen #4) by Amanda Stevens

by Amanda Stevens
March 29th 2016 by MIRA
Kindle Edition, 400 pages
My name is Amelia Gray. I'm the Graveyard Queen.

Restoring lost and abandoned cemeteries is my profession, but I'm starting to believe that my true calling is deciphering the riddles of the dead. Legend has it that Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has ever been able to solve. For over half a century, the answer has remained hidden within the strange headstone inscriptions and intricate engravings. Because uncovering the mystery of that tiny, remote graveyard may come at a terrible price.

Years after their mass death, Ezra Kroll's disciples lie unquiet, their tormented souls trapped within the walls of Kroll Cemetery, waiting to be released by someone strong and clever enough to solve the puzzle. For whatever reason, I'm being summoned to that graveyard by both the living and the dead. Every lead I follow, every clue I unravel brings me closer to an unlikely killer and to a destiny that will threaten my sanity and a future with my love, John Devlin.

I have been a fan of Amanda Stevens and her "Graveyard Queen" series since...Well, so far back I can't remember. This issue is soon to be published so, of course, I jumped at the chance to review.

Amelia restores old and/or abandoned graveyard headstones and feels a strong infinity to honoring the departed. They all have a story and there is where the problems always start! Not only is Amelia a gifted artist, she also sees and communicates with her charges. They (ghosts) are drawn to her. They come to her in dreams and in her waking hours. She can see the "haunting" of living beings and can't extricate herself from the driving force to help.

This time Amelia herself is the one being haunted. Someone is trying to give her a personal message that puts Amelia in grave danger. Ignoring almost everything her father taught her about keeping safe from the departed, Amelia finds herself embroiled in a cat and mouse game that could cost her life. Or it could also reveal secrets to her past that she has been desperate to know.

Stevens is a master of creating twists and turns in her stories and this issue is no exception. I love her characters as they come to life on the pages. A smattering of a tumultuous romance and personal danger only add to the mysterious reveal of who and what Amelia really is.

Even though this is the 4th in the series, I believe you can pick this one up and be fine with the information provided. But beware, the story will "haunt" you until you go back and read the 3 previous journeys that are the "Graveyard Queen"!

I give this 4.5 "blindly haunting" sheep!

Guest Post Author Daco S. Auffenorde: Getting The Skinny From Biggie (Electromancer book tour) + giveaway

Getting The Skinny From Biggie

Exclusive to the Kensington City Examiner

Those of you who’ve been following my investigatory column looking into the truth behind Electromancer will recall that I was lying in wait outside the Kensington City Police Headquarters, biding my time until Bigelow “Biggie” Bitterman was released from custody. The city’s chief constable, Pete Petaud, had run Biggie in for reckless driving, a bit unfair because Bitterman is a man of small stature who has trouble seeing over the steering wheel. Nonetheless, Petaud thought it was reckless that Biggie refused to sit on a booster pillow. Petaud’s decision to haul Biggie in on something so minor raised this reporter’s antenna—did Biggie know something about Electromancer, the electrified superhero, or her arch-nemesis, known only as Momo. So when Biggie exited the front doors of the police station, I followed him to the Kensington City Lanes and gave him a few minutes to rent a pair of shoes and select a bowling bowl. Meanwhile, Biggie didn’t look like a man who’d talk to a reporter willingly, so I did what any intrepid girl reporter caught in a superhero-romance investigation would do (think modern Lois Lane): I went to the ladies room, hiked up my skirt and applied some sexy makeup. Others have done much more edgy things in pursuit of that elusive Pulitzer Prize for journalism. The getup worked, because shortly thereafter, I was making eyes at Biggie, asking probing question, and taking notes.

DA: What’s a guy like yourself doing hanging out around a bowling alley in the middle of the day and in the middle of a workweek?

BB: I’m a professional killer … I mean bowler.

DA: What do you know about Electromancer?

BB: The broad is a menace, what with her flying around and shooting electricity out of her fingers.

DA: But tell me this—do you think she’s the one wreaking havoc on Kensington City and around the world. Causing all the power outages? Because, I get the impression that Chief Petaud think’s that you’re involved.
BB: Do I look like the kind of guy who goes flapping my wings and flitting around the place. And I don’t look good in a platinum suit. It has to be Electromancer causing disasters. I do have a question—what do you think happens to that platinum suit when she’s flying at the speed of light? You know, even polyester can’t take that much strain.

DA: No comment. The camp is divided here in Kensington City. Some are saying Electromancer is next to divine, and then there are guys like you who claim she’s the perpetrator of terror.
BB: Let me show you something about guys like me. [Biggie slid closer—all to close—to this interviewer.]

DA: [This reporter got up and retrieved a bowling ball, proceeding to roll it into the gutter because of Biggie’s leering.]
BB: Wait a minute. I recognize you. You’re a cop. On patrol with Chief Petaud.

DA: Not me. I’m a reporter for the Examiner. I’m just trying to figure out if this Electromancer is a real person. A superhero.
BB: Take it from me, she’s no superhero. And if you knows what’s good for you, you’ll walk out that door.

DA: Before I do, tell me about Momo?
BB: Never heard of him in my life. I know nothing about The Big Zapper. Or his plans to take over the world. Or his bizarre eating habits. Or his performance enhancing drugs.

DA: Then why did Petaud run you in? You must know Momo.
BB: Come on, lady, do I look like I could tell a lie. I told you I don’t know the fine gentleman. I’m not criminal type. I’m a bowler. [At this point, Biggie smiled, pulled a switchblade out of his pocket, used it to clip the nails of his bowling hand, retrieved a mega-size bowling ball, stepped to the line, and rolled a perfect strike.] Told you. I’m a pro. Knock ‘em down and they don’t get up—they don’t ever get up.

That was my cue to beat it. Foiled again. I thought for sure a short skirt and red lipstick would get a guy like Biggie talking, but I was wrong. Pillow talk wasn’t in the cards for this reporter. If I were single … well, that’s another story. Ha! Gottcha there. I was back to square one, which meant I’d have to dig deeper, to check out a few of the secondary sources.

To learn more about the citizens of Kensington City, and the illustrious Electromancer, follow along as I continue to interview folks. And in the meantime, you can also learn more about Electromancer in the romantic, thrilling, superhero novel Electromancer.

With a heart as pure as platinum and electricity at her fingertips!

She soars like a falcon and travels at the speed of light!


When arch villain Momo threatens to destroy the world with The Big Zapper—a weapon of mass destruction the likes of which has never been seen before—it’s up to Alexa Manchester and her new electricity-harnessing superpowers to stop him.

With a little help from her sexy chauffeur, Sigfred Sawyer, and some exciting encounters with the mysterious and handsome Blue Arrow, soon Alexa’s love life is charged up, too. And to defeat the seemingly invincible Momo, it might just take the naturally super power of love to save the day.

Offering all the Kabam! Pow! Zap! of beloved comic book sagas with the beating heart of a love story, this over-the-top, genre-blending send-up is sure to delight superhero fans and romance readers alike.

Readers of both comic book sagas and romance novels will find the sparks that fly between Alexa and Sigfred very electrifying indeed.
~ Colleen Sargent Library Journal

Excerpt from Chapter 6
Sigfred couldn’t be sure whether the mayor’s proposal pleased or displeased her, but it wasn’t his place to ask. He could do one thing—help her get that blasted ring off her finger. He went to the pantry and retrieved a bottle of olive oil—cold pressed extra virgin, of course, because this was Yurdlemon’s kitchen.

“Let me help you get that off,” he said.

“No, I’ll do it myself.” She paused suddenly, staring at the big green stone as if transfixed. “Maybe I’m not sure I want it off.” She shook her head. “But I do, I do. Oh, I don’t know what I want.” She sighed. “Wait! Yes, I do. I want to talk about last night.”

“Of course, if you wish.” He waited for her to speak, but she seemed stumped.

Then she said, “What did you think about last night?”

He cleared his throat and said, “Yes, right. It was quite—”

“Sigfred!” She slapped her hands down on the sink and looked back at him. “It was nothing like quite, it was more like Oh-My-God in the highest order. No offense.”

“Yes, quite.”

“Don’t keep saying quite! You could say yes, shocking or even jiminy crickets or holy ‘expletive omitted,’ but there was nothing quite about last night. I mean you were there, you saw everything.”

He couldn’t think of an appropriate response—at least, not one that he could articulate to his employer.

“Am I right, you did see everything?” she asked. 

“Yes,” he said. “It was unintentional, of course, Ms. Manchester. I found you lying on the floor next to The Magpie.”

Her eyes widened, and her eyebrows arched upward in disapproval. “I didn’t mean that, Sigfred. I’m talking about my hands shooting those bolts of lightning from my fingertips—pure electricity!”

He cleared his throat again. “Ah, yes. And there was that.”

“It’s ridiculous. Absurd. People don’t emit electricity. Gladys says I should see a doctor. That I must have been exposed to the Electromite. Am I cursed?”

“It doesn’t seem to be life-threatening. On the contrary, you’ve become stronger by it, or so it seems. If I’m not mistaken, you saved the child from drowning because of it. Perhaps it’s not a curse, but a gift.”

She seemed to consider this, absentmindedly pulling at the mayor’s ring.

“Just a moment,” he said. “I think I can assist you with that little problem you’re having.” He opened the bottle of olive oil and drizzled some over her ring finger. Then, very gently, he began working the ring back and forth. He thrilled when he touched her, but she didn’t seem to react.

“I can fly, you know,” she said, her tone surprisingly casual.

“Yes, madame. I suspected that’s how you saved the boy.”

“What happens if I try to fly, and then these magical abilities suddenly vanish?”

“Perhaps they won’t ever vanish.” 

“Yes, perhaps you’re right,” she said in a quiet, serious voice. “And that would mean I haven’t been infected at all. Instead, I’ve been inalterably changed. It would mean that there’s no cure. It means my body and spirit have been transformed into something ... alien. It means I’m not Alexa anymore.”

“You’ll always be Alexa,” he said, reaching up and tipping her chin toward him with slippery fingers. His eyes locked on hers, and he spoke with hushed solemnity. “Nothing can ever change that.” He wanted to call her lovely Alexa, kind Alexa, beautiful Alexa, but of course, that was impossible.

“When I was inside The Magpie, I heard my father’s voice. Is that crazy?”

“Not at all, Ms. Manchester.”

She studied his face. “You don’t think I’m crazy?”

“Not at all.” And he meant it. Things went silent as they looked into each other’s eyes. Sigfred had just swayed imperceptibly closer to her when a sudden dull thunk interrupted them. The ring had finally fallen off, clattering into the sink. The moment was lost. He realized, with some awkwardness, that he was still touching her face and dropped his hand.

She colored and looked away, speaking a bit brusquely. “My father called me Electromancer. I get the ‘electro’ part of it, but what’s a ‘mancer’? Have you any clue?” 

“You’ve got me there, madame.” 

“Mancer? It must mean something.”

“Almost like Romancer.”

Her jaw dropped. “Oh, Sigfred. Not you, too.” 

He stiffened. He wasn’t about to explore his feelings with her or to take the liberty of allowing his romantic thoughts about Alexa to go unrestrained. It was his utmost duty to remain her servant and protector, always physically near but emotionally distant. But when she’d transformed into this Electromancer, he had to admit to himself that she was absolutely and without a doubt the sexiest woman alive. Any red-blooded male would be hard pressed to deny that fact. 

“What are you going to do about the mayor’s proposal?” he blurted out. So much for knowing his place. “He’s not worthy of you.”

“Bobby Baumgartner is the mayor of Kensington City. He might be prime minister one day.”

“I don’t care if he’s prime minister, king, and president of the Americanas combined. He’s beneath you.” 

“And just who are you to talk about rank?”

Her words stung, the pain more intense than the damage those thugs had inflicted the previous night. “Quite right, madame,” he said. “My station is lowly. But I’m one thing the mayor isn’t. I’m a man of integrity.”

“I saw the way you looked at me last night. I may have been Electromancer, but I know when a man is gawking at me.”

“I wasn’t gawking. I was appreciating the qualities of ... You’re a beautiful woman, madame.” 

“You mean, Electromancer is beautiful.”

“No, madame. I mean you. Alexa Manchester.”

She looked at him in surprise. 

“What’s the meaning of this?” Chef Yurdlemon bellowed from across the room. “Who is invading my kitchen? You are trespassers.” He pointed at Sigfred. “Especially you, Sigfred Sawyer.”

Sigfred nodded slowly. He was trespassing, though not in the way Yurdlemon meant.

“This mess with the olive oil is all my fault,” Alexa said. “I was using it to try to get this ring off. It was stuck on my finger. Sigfred was just trying to help me.” 

“You used my cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil to remove a ring?” Yurdlemon cried. “Such olive oil is not for ring removal. Such olive oil is to make a divine dinner as only I can make it. The olives for that oil come from a small orchard in Sicily that produces only two hundred cases a year! Do you know what that costs? More than a Chateau Latour Bordeaux. More than a fine Sauternes. I need it for my dinner preparations. Oh, everything is ruined now. Each and every minute of preparation is accounted for. There won’t be time enough left in the day, not now. Not when I’m forced to return to the market, where I can only get inferior olive oil.” Chef Yurdlemon grabbed the sides of his head and looked as if he were about to sob. It wouldn’t have been the first time.

Sheep Movie Review: Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice
Directed By: Zack Snyder
Rated: PG-13
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Lawrence Fishburne, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot and Diane Lane

Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) share the screen in this Warner Bros./DC Entertainment co-production penned by David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio, and directed by Zack Snyder. Amy Adams and Diane Lane return as Lois Lane and Martha Kent, respectively.

As a whole, I'm not a rabid DC Comics fan. I don't really dislike the franchise per-say, my tastes tend to sway in the ways of Marvel. It's like saying you like Coke or Pepsi. Most have one they prefer and that's just the way it is. That said, I did really and truly want to see this film and I didn't go into it with any judgement or hate. Just overall love and support for comics and of course hot men in tight suits. Rarr!

Batman v Superman is jam packed with multiple themes, strife and struggle. The Alien who can't find his place in the universe and the aging vigilantly with a chip on his shoulder. It's all well and good but, on the big screen, in a couple hour time-frame, there is a ton to take in. So be ready to process scenes quickly and small little queues. We're on a ticking movie time clock folks!

As the story moves along we have two alphas trying to almost vie for top dog of Gotham. I mean, can't we play with our toys nicely boys? In walks our soon to be Wonder Woman and she sure can take on just about anything it seems. I liked her character a bunch and if you're familiar with the Fast and Furious franchise you will recognizer her too.

Amy Adams kinda drew the short straw on this one. She's so talented but her character is almost lack luster and unable to communicate at moments. Lois needs to get saved by her main squeeze more then twice and that's just too much in my girl-power book! Points lost on that front for sure.

There's tons of CGI action afoot, was it to the point of overabundance....yeah sometimes but isn't that the way of super hero movies? Don't comic pages often take the reader on epic journeys? Shouldn't the film do the same? I think they can make those liberties and while I am not one for the over the top, I do like some bang bang for my buck. Give me good dialog, action, struggle and some actors who can bring their A-Game! THEN I'm a happy movie goer.

While I wont spoil this fill, I will say there are tastes of the other DC charters who are getting their own movies soon(ish). Hey no one can ever be Michael Keaton as Batman in this gals book, but they can all sure try. Heads up, there was no extra scene after the credits.
