The Dresden Files have opened my mind up to a genre I've never read before: Urban Fantasy. And I don't know how many times I have reread the entire series. Ben Aaronovitch and his Peter Grant series came next and just made me love the genre even more. Jim C. Hines is the kind of guy who always has some great blog posts about thing...be it the debacle over at SFWA or the fact that most book covers portray women in ridiculous clothes and poses. He's the kind of guy you wanna support no matter what. Good thing he also writes books, and good ones at that. I'm an Urban Fantasy noob and I honestly don't know much about this genre other than the two authors listed above. So I cannot say if we have seen things before, if something is new and revolutionary or just something that has been done already. And honestly, I don't care. If I like a book, I like it. And Isaac Vainio being a librarian who can actually use books to do magic, and who has a fire-spider named Smudge, is just a concept that I really, really like. I've seen other reviews that pointed out how Lena is the ultimate geek dream come true: geek hero gets the girl and her girlfriend... hrm, I must admit that this was kind of weird but on the other hand I'll just see where this is going in the next book. Libriomancer is full of references, and pretty smart. And I'm the kind of person who loves pop-culture, book, geek-whatever references in books. So, this may not be a real review but me rambling on about how much I loved this book but then again, I DID love the book, and there's not more to say than that.
