Read This F@!%ing Book (4)



Welcome to a new feature I'm going to post from time to time called:

Read This F@!%ing Book!

This is a feature for me to push my favorite reads that just aren't getting enough attention! 

I'm also opening it up to anyone who would like to guest post. Do you have a book that you just LURVED but feel like its not getting the play it deserves? Email me to let me know and I'd be THRILLED to have you post about it here! Especially if its something I haven't reviewed yet - that's even better! If you're interested email me:

Read This F@!%ing Book Post 4: 
The Disillusionists Trilogy

(Click cover for Goodreads)
    

(Click title for Amazon)

Why I'm pushing it:

The Disillusionists Trilogy is nothing if not unique. The characters in this urban fantasy series are like disgruntled comic book heroes, with all sorts of crazy super powers. The world author Carolyn Crane created for her series is an original: some people have special superhuman abilities that allow them to do special things and these people can also use their powers to influence others. The first book in the series is wonderful, but its books two and three that made me a rabid Carolyn Crane fan. The twists! The turns! Oh man, this series ripped out my heart and stuffed it back inside over and over again!

The characters:

All the characters in the series are extremely complex, most of all our three lead characters: Justine, Packard, and Otto. Justine is an obsessive hypochondriac who thinks she will die any second of a rare brain disorder. Otto shares a similar fear but doesn't have the same superhuman ability as Justine to be able to push her fear into other people and use it as a weapon. Otto is both good and evil and even though he was the bane of my existence while reading he somehow manages to be a sympathetic character. Packard is...well, Packard. Let's give him his own section, shall we?

PACKARD!

Do you like a strong, sexy, and mysterious hero in your urban fantasy? How about a tortured hero type? Do you need some romance and hotness to keep the story going for you? Well I give you Packard! He is all that and a bag of chips (that's right, I said it...deal with it). He's one of my all time favorite fictional men, especially in books two and three!

Well there you have it! If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it!

  1. Thanks for featuring this series! I discovered this series when I was in a bit of UF slump last year and I absolutely loved it. The plot was unique and it was really refreshing to discover a different sort of heroine.

  2. I like this feature. I think it's a great idea to share the books that we love that others may not know about. I think it should be a link up feature. :)
