Hour of Mischief by Aimee Hyndman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The first thing that caught my attention about Hour of Mischief was the amazing cover, then the synopsis sealed the deal. I find Steampunk fascinating with its gears and gadgets. Add in mythology with an interesting twist, that makes it a must read.

Seventeen year old, Janet Redstone has not had an easy life living in the slums of Fortuna with her mom. In a world ruled by the Clockwork Gods Janet and a group of her friends earn a living by robbing their temples. In fact, Janet and her team are in high demand until a heist goes wrong that lands them in prison. Now, the only way out is to make a deal with the God of Mischief, ITAZURA. Will Janet be able to save her friends, or will this deal cost them their lives?

Janet may have had a rough childhood, but she is determined to make a better life for herself. In a world where prosthetic limbs are a symbol of status, Janet sees her prosthetic arm as a curse. It does come in handy in a fight. Itazura is not necessarily trustworthy since he is the god of mischief. Can Janet trust Itazura to fulfill his end of the bargain? What an intriguing world Aimee Hyndman has created! It is based on the clock face where each god rules a specific hour. I did find the word building a little slow in the beginning, but once the world with its compelling characters was established, the story flowed well. I would definitely recommend it, and I look forward to see what happens next.

One Less Warlock by Judith Post

One Less Warlock by Judith Post My rating: 4 of 5 stars I think it's hard in a short story to create a unique setting, characters, etc., and still get some sort of story line in. In One Less Warlock, Judith did an excellent job of molding the story in such a way that we got a taste of a distinct world and character personalities, and a complete story to go with it. In this short story Judith was able to pack in witches, vampires, a sexy Were, succubus, voodoo, murder, and mystery, all in only about 20 pages. Pretty amazing. I enjoyed the story and Babet, the main character, and am looking forward to more of her in the future. View all my reviews
