      There aren't that many UF series with male mcs. Not that I know of anyway. Yeah, I hear you. I know all about the Iron Druid Chronicles guy. Damn, what was his name again? Can't remember. His dog Oberon was pretty cool though. The fact that I only remember the dog's name should give you a pretty good idea of how impressed I was with the book. But I digress. So. There aren't that many UF series with male mcs. Not that I know of anyway. Yeah, I hear you. I know all about Harry Dresden. Haven't had [...]

      I really love this series. It's a good thing Sara writes so much throughout the year, because this short one left me wanting even more! Can't beat an author who tells a great story without fluffing up the word count just for the heck of it!

      ARC - Review Some TV-shows they start out great and then get worse with each episode, others take what seemed at first a less promising start and build on it to turn the show into enjoyable entertainment, featuring characters you look forward to meet again.The Office of Preternatural Affairs series belongs for me to the latter. We follow Cèsar on his fifth outing (book six in the series, book five was a special episode revolving around OPA contractor Isobel Stonecrow and Fritz Friederling, Cès [...]

      I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. As usual, other readers have spelled out what this book is about better than I could have so this review is about Ashes and Arsenic, and the series as a whole.Cesar Hawke is a character you just WANT to know more about, and Ms Reine is good at stringing us along(in a good way), giving us more and more insight into his life, a little at a time, as this series progresses. This time we learn more about his brother(who is in tr [...]

      I received Ashes and Arsenic in exchange for a fair and honest review. Out of all the characters that S.M. Reine has created (I still have a couple more to meet as I continue the Descent series) Cèsar is one of my favorites. I love his ‘voice.’ He has a strong sense of right and wrong and an even stronger sense of loyalty. In other words, he’s not afraid to bend the rules if someone he cares about is in danger. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and he pretty much knows his limits. A [...]

      Another amazing Cesar adventure. One truly can not help but seriously love this guy! This time Cesar finds himself in the middle of a turf war. least on the surface that is what it looks like. Because of his brother's involvement Cesar finds himself neck deep in trouble with not enough answers to keep his brother, let alone himself out of trouble. As with all of Sara's books, this one does not disappoint and truly makes you eager to see what she comes up with next!

      I think this is Sara's best series Too much self-centered attitude, you see, brings, you see, isolation. Result: loneliness, fear, anger. The extreme self-centered attitude is the source of suffering. – Dalai LamaGreed is not a financial issue. It’s a heart issue. – Andy Stanley Cesar Hawke isn’t really much of a witch in the eyes of his coworkers at the Office of Preternatural Affairs. I mean, come on – the guy has massive sneezing attacks when he comes in contact with magic – noth [...]

      Looks like she did it again folks Ok, if boring low action non violent books are what you want your in the wrong place! Agent Hawke has done it again. He has come to kick but and take names later! I feel right into this book reading none stop from cover to cover! It was just as wonderfully written as all her other books! I could not believe how creative the author was in this story! How captivating it was!! I missed a couple characters this time but the absent of them was made up for by the even [...]

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Ready for the same womanizing, magic allergic, OPA agent you’ve come to know as Cesar Hawke? We go back into his head in this installment of the series, diving back into a twisty-turny world where you can’t trust anyone, especially not your employer.Cesar is temporarily in charge while Fritz is traveling and it’s gone to his head. Taking the lesser of two evils, he assigns himself to a bank robbery that he assumes will be rela [...]

      Agent Cèsar Hawke is not my favorite character. I prefer Ms. Reine's female main characters. But Cèsar is humorous to read about. After all, I don't know of any witch who has a major allergy to magic. Then, again, I don't know many witches. So they may well exist out there somewhere.Cèsar is self-effacing, definitely not a macho man. He does cause me to giggle every now and then. In this book, we get to know more about his brother and father. We've already met his sister and she's off doing h [...]

    12. Kelly on said:

      Man, Cèsar just can't catch a break, can he? He gets all manner of badness dropped on him in previous books (which, amazingly, he manages to fight his way out of) and just when it looks like he's landed an easy case things go sour. BADLY sour. Like, holy crapballs, WHAT NEXT?!?! sour.Family. You can't live with them, you can't trust them to not rob banks. Or can you?There's so much double talk and underhanded STUFF going on in this case that Cèsar honestly doesn't know which way is up. He want [...]

      This is book 6 in the Preternatural Affairs series. Cesar is back and this time he is in charge since Fritz is at a summit meeting. He is determined not to have to deal with any demons this time around. He wants a simple case dealing with miscreant witches. Unfortunately, this one hits home for him. The case he investigates involves witches robbing a bank and a murder of 2 witches. Everything seems to center around his brother. Cesar and Suzy rush to figure out who is behind everything while try [...]

      The sixth "Preternatural Affairs" novel from S.M. Reine is more of the same. And that's not a bad thing. The story isn't entirely coherent, but who really cares when magic is being thrown about, banks are being robbed, and volcanoes are erupting in MacArthur Park (I think that's where it was )? My biggest beef about this series is that Reine usually manages to make our hero, Cesar Hawke, look both dim and weak. After the previous novel, in which it turned out that he could pull off a powerful sp [...]

      Another fantastic book in the series. I love the little bits of humour thrown in. Like a status that is "hung like a sperm whale".Over all, the characters are enjoyable.I've said this before about SM Reine, but she really writes characters that you know and love. She has a knack of making these characters come alive so that they become your friends, your family, your enemies. You laugh with them, you love with them and you mourn with them.Anyway, another book I would highly recommend. If I could [...]

      You know it's a good book when you end up dreaming that you're a character in it because you fell asleep reading it I dreamt that Fritz Friederling was trying to recruit me into the OPA because he thought I'd be able to distract Cesar away from Isobel. But instead he made me his 2nd in command after I kept rescuing him. Pretty cool, huh? ;)@ SM Reine : Thanks so much for writing yet another addicting page-turner please drop everything and get back to the series, I can hear Cesar begging for at l [...]

    17. Juliet on said:

      Boo, we're back to Cèsar being a putz. This book takes place at the same time as book #5 so we're lacking Isobel and Fritz, much to my dismay. Also, this book ended saying I could download the next book which isn't true since it hasn't been published yet. Huge disappointment. Hopefully we get more Isobel, Fritz, and Suzy. Maybe I am also holding out a little hope that Cèsar will quit being a putz with Fritz's influence/help.

      Love, love, love!As always SM Reine hits it out of the park! Cesar is such an awesome character, I loved that his brother and pops had a part in this book. Pops was so much fun to read about, I hope we hear more about him. Would also be nice to incorporate Ofelia too. The whole Hawke family in one book working together.or maybe against each other. Cesar and Suzy need to get it on too, there is starting to be a lot of sexual tension between them!

    19. Tabby Shiflett on said:

      The latest work in the Cesar Hawke series is, in a word, spellbinding. The characters, action, and sardonic humor are balanced well. The plot is interesting and fast-paced. The reader learns more about the MC's family and you also get to see a slightly more personal side of Suzy. And Pops, you rock! I have enjoyed all of these books, but this one is my new favorite.

    20. D.R.Slater on said:

      Ashes and AresenicThe urban fantasy mystery series is a change from the hum- drum of other novels. SM Reine creative way of building storyline out of supernatural witchy detective agency which is the hind governments way of dealing with preternatural affairs. You got a winner of a series and a worthy read. I feel like X-Files without the alien concept.

    21. tracey welch on said:

      A series worth reading! I enjoyed this book. It was a good paranormal mystery. Plot was strong and kept me guess which is a plus. I don't want to know who did it until the end. Ms Reine is a great writer with believable characters and builds great worlds to enjoy returning to time and again. A series worth reading.

      Loved!SM Reine is one of my favorite authors and this book was absolutely wonderful!!! I highly recommend this book and series!!

      Fun and quick read. I received a free copy of this book on my kindle from the author in exchange of a review.

    24. Beth on said:

      GreatI wasn't sure about this series when I started it. I wasn't sure I liked the author's writing style but in thoroughly enjoying this story and will be sorry when it ends.

    25. Boneist on said:

      Enjoyed this, as expected. I wish they were longer, though, as I'd love to spend more time in the world of Cèsar. Have to wait for the next book to be published *taps fingers*
