It’s the Iron Night book birthday! And I am just in awe of some of the reviews that it is getting. Check these gems out!

Iron Night is freaking awesome. Brennan has made vampires cool again, elves creepy, and urban fantasy feel fresh. In an over saturated genre this is no small feat. Fortitude Scott is a hero worth cheering for. He’s easy to empathize with, yet stands as a role model for justice (vigilante though it might be). This is truly a series with heart and I wish it a long run and Brennan many a success. I won’t be happy until this series is picked up for a crime procedural.

If you like fresh takes on old tropes, characters you’d gladly drink a beer with, and laughing your ass off at three in the mornings, you should definitely give both Generation V and Iron [N]ight a try. M.L. Brennan is the best thing to come out in the urban fantasy market in years and you can even carry the book in public without shame.
Lisa over at Over The Effing Rainbow also made Iron Night the subject of her Tuesday Teaser, writing:
…a full review will be going up here very soon, but trust me. This one is worth your time – as is the first book in this series, Generation V, which you’ll want to start with if you haven’t already read it. *Pushes books at you*
Iron Night also shares a very prestigious book birthday — Diana Rowland’s Fury of the Demon is out today, along with Barb Hendee & J.C. Hendee’s A Wind in the Night! Need to put a few extra books in the cart to make the free shipping mark? Definitely check those out!
Happy Tuesday to everyone! It’s icy cold here, but so far I’m having an AMAZING book release day!
Happy Halloween! Hopefully everyone has something fun planned for today, and not just what holiday-themed name they are putting on their Twitter account! (After succumbing to peer pressure, I’ve been ML BOOrennan this week.)
Ever wonder what Fortitude Scott, film major extraordinaire, thinks are the top ten scariest films to watch on Halloween? Ever wonder to what extent Suzume Hollis would mess with that list? Wonder no more, and go over and see it in my guest post for SheWolfReads‘s Creepy Classic Movie Challenge – Fortitude Scott’s Top Ten Scary Movies!

Brennan creates some interesting explanations and back story for vampire breeding and history. There are plenty of exciting fight scenes to make this a fast-paced read and some satisfying bloody gruesomeness that is so necessary for any vampire story.
And Lori at Romancing The Dark Side wrote:
The world building in Generation V is unique and breaks away from the traditional vampire lore. Vampires are not made, but born via “vampire-made surrogates” and are not immortal beings. The addition of the kitsune lore adds even more allure to the story and really speaks to the author’s creativity. I really love that Ms. Brennan introduced an unexplored supernatural being instead of sticking to the “usual” vampire vs. werewolf we typically see in this genre…bravo! The vampires in her world are stronger, darker and a bit creepy, giving the story an edge.
And Nick’s review over at Goodreads had some fantastic things to say:
Suzume Hollis is a character, not a love interest, and because Brennan takes time to establish a believable relationship between her and Fort I won’t feel put upon if they eventually hook up. In fact, I’ll probably cheer – Suzume is just that awesome.
Generation V is unexpectedly awesome. Fortitude Scott manages to confront the issues of life after college and the struggle against genetics in entertaining ways. He’s not your average, hard-boiled urban fantasy protagonist. He’s not your average vampire either. What I find even more exciting than Generation V is the potential this has for a series.
