Level Up

I had a fun enough time with Bellet's first novelette in this series -- the characters were amusing and Folly Blaine's narration was delightful -- so I listened to this short book in between some other long and more complicated novels.

As a result, I had a surprisingly good time with this one. Bellet did a very solid job of upping the stakes this time out. Jade is in a happy romantic relationship and is gaming with her friends. She's expecting the bad times to come, and when an estranged family member shows up, Jade faces it all with determination. The stakes are upped this time out, and the emotional weight and the fallout exacts a certain strain on the characters and their relationships with each other. In the previous volume, Jade and company seemed to get along a little too well. By the end of this book, that familiar comfort has been replaced with uncertainty and conflict, and I found myself ready to queue up the next one. (WHEN DOES IT COME OUT?!?!)

Folly Blaine continues to captivate, hitting all the right notes between romance, humor, adventure, and horror. She's the perfect narrator for this series, and a big part of the reason I'm ready for the third installment.

This isn't a complicated urban fantasy that subverts all the tropes of the genre. Instead, it's just an awful lot of fun and easy listening, and I'm looking forward to more.

Perfectly Serviceable Urban Fantasy

Likeable main character. Love that there's only light romance and plenty of swearing. Good humored. Short. It's just not doing anything terribly unexpected or surprising.
