It’s been a year since Agent Eliza Braun was pulled from the field due to insubordination (temper, temper, Miss Braun!) and sentenced to work in the archives with Mr. Wellington Thornhill Books, the archivist. Nothing remotely exciting has happened since their very first case together, the one in...

I really liked the first in this series and I really enjoyed the second as well. There are some jokey things with the naming I could have done without, but overall I got caught up in the characters a LOT, even moreso than the last installment. I really like how romance cliches aren't followed in...

At first, as I was reading this, I found myself in the position of the parents at the school play in Down With Skool!. "At least," I said, "it's better than last year's." The first Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novel has been widely praised, and has even won an award, but personally I was profo...

Read This Review & More Like It On My Blog! I loved this. Absolutely. Frikkin. Loved it. I tried to draw out the experience and couldn't make myself stop reading the second day. Without a doubt, this impressive second novel in the newer Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series is going into my...

The authors either need better editors or they need vocabulary lessons. "Shear" is not the same as "sheer", "any" is not the same as "many" and "bobble" is definitely not the same as "bauble." And oh, my dog, "a grizzly discovery" means you just found a bear. If you just found a body, that's more...

As the second Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel, The Janus Affair more than delivers on the promise of last year's Phoenix Rising, even if the story at the heart of it isn't quite as strong. With the preliminaries out of the way, Ballantine & Morris are able to spend more time exploring...

Welly and Miss Eliza D. Braun are back, and as wonderfully wacky as ever. I want to hang out in the archives with them, be their best friend, adopt their children. I love them. A lot. RTC. (Maybe. Probably not. I'm busy.)

Fastens your seat belts, folks, this one is one hell of a ride. If you read last year's review of Phoenix Rising, you probably either already know what I'm about to say, or you're already nose deep into the book and not reading this review. For those of you who are coming late into the game, Pip B...

"We are partners. While life in the Archives moves at a more pedestrian pace than her previous exploits, it is that other life I have caught glimpses of in our brief time together that has made me feel..." And his voice trailed off again. "Alive, Mr. Books?" He nodded appreciatively. "Well put, Ali...
