ATUF has something to say about SOUL OF FIRE…

Aaaaaaand All Things Urban Fantasy liked SOUL OF FIRE as much as they did HEART OF BRIAR! “SOUL OF FIRE takes the foundation from book one and cracks GIlman’s world wide open….As always in Gilman’s fantasy, every war has consequences and rarely is there a win without sacrifice. Human, super, and preter societies are colliding, …

oh. hi there, shiny little surprise review….

from Publishers Weekly…. Fans and skeptics of the occult will be seduced and enthralled by Gilman’s metaphysical thriller about wicked elves, shape-shifting supernaturals and portals to another dimension. A fable of good versus evil, Gilman’s inspired fantasy is poised between two worlds: Human, whose denizens are unaware they are being invaded; and Preternatural, whose elf …

Some YAY! on SOUL OF FIRE (and some boo, too)

RT has weighed in on SOUL OF FIRE, the October  follow-up to HEART OF BRIAR… “A battle may have been won, but the war looms and the odds of preventing the upcoming preternatural invasion are not good. The action in Gilman’s riveting follow-up to the excellent Heart of Briar picks up after all-too-human Jan rescued …

All Things Urban Fantasy liked HEART OF BRIAR!

“Calling this story a retelling of Tam Lin doesn’t do it justice. Gilman has taken the bones of that fairy tale and reassembled it entirely, restrung with strength and ferocity and drive outside that pale relationship between a woman and her lost lover. Jan’s journey starts to find Tyler, but ultimately she finds so much …

Delighted Author Dance: “an underlying strength that elevates it…”

Yeah, it’s sort of been “all mystery all the time” here, and that will probably continue for another month or so.  But there will be stuff on the fantasy front soon too, I promise! —————– So, everyone loves it when a reviewer – a professional critic – likes their book. But honestly, the thing that …

And another country is heard from, for Ms. Kornetsky’s COLLARED…

The Library Journal reviewer was not entirely pleased by my not tying up every single thread at the end (this is me, guys, I don’t make everything 100% tidy, nope) but overall she seemed to like COLLARED…. “VERDICT The plot moves quickly, enhanced by smart dialog and good characterizations… a fairly strong beginning to what …

Three Cheers for Ms. Kornetsky!

Of my alter-ego, and her forthcoming Collared (November 2012), Publishers Weekly sez: Fantasy writer Kornetsky’s charming first mystery introduces an enterprising heroine in Ginny Mallard, the owner of a fledgling concierge business in Seattle, Wash., and a supporting cast that includes a couple of four-footed friends. While having a drink in Mary’s, a neighborhood pub, (Ginny) overhears …
