Another year has ended, and once again we take a look back at a few of the many books reviewed in KRL in 2018. All but one of our main reviewers share in this post their top 5-10 favorite books they reviewed in 2018. Our newest reviewer, Katherine Costa, wanted to include favorite authors and TV shows that she has reviewed, so hers went up in a separate post.

Discovering an engaging author is the best experience a reader can have, but discovering an engaging author with eleven series already to her credit is even better.

Flameout is set in Melbourne, Australia and is the third book in the Souls of Fire series by Keri Arthur. There is a plague in the city called the Crimson Death which turns people into a new sort of vampire/zombie type creature called Red Cloaks. Most of those infected become a part of a hive that is run by someone from Emberly Pearson’s past–the brother of her former love Sam.

Science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal books are all about world-building, creating an alternate reality with details that try to make them consistent and…real. In City of Light, Keri Arthur has built a reality, world, and history that takes the impossible and makes it matter-of-fact to at least one character Tiger, a seductress-spy who should have died a hundred years ago in the shifter/human war if it hadn’t been for the test-tube mix of shifter, vampire, and tiger DNA that had been dosed with an immunity to all known poisons. She can change body shape and scent, read other people’s minds during sex, travel swiftly as molecules in darkness, and has acquired massive combat skills over the last century of practice.
