The Leaning Pile of Books

This is a day late since I was out for a while yesterday and never ended up on the computer for very long. Last week I received two surprise review copies.

Beneath the Skin by Adrian Phoenix

The third book in The Maker's Song about vampire rock star Dante Baptiste came out at the end of December. Since there are two other books in the series that I don't have, I most likely will not be reading it. I did read a review of the first two books over at The Book Smugglers recently, and these don't really sound enough like my type of books for me to track down the previous novels.
Master of None by Sonya Bateman

This novel actually doesn't have a cover on Amazon yet although there is one on Sonya Bateman's website. It's also an urban fantasy about an unlucky thief and a djinn. The release date is March 30th and it is the start of a new series. Since it doesn't require I track down more books to read and it sounds as though it may be humorous, I might give this one a try.

I'm torn over the Adrian Phoenix books. Part of me is intrigued and part of me thinks the books are not for me...

I look forward to seeing what you think of Master of None :)

Orannia - I know what you mean. It doesn't really sound like it's for me, but it sounds just interesting enough that I would give it a chance if it was the first book instead of the third.
