Serial Box Updates! Tremontaine! Bookburners!

Remember how I reviewed each episode of season three Tremontaine and Bookburners? Well, they’ve now been bundled together into omnibuses! Head over to the Serial Box site for more information. Seasons one of Tremontaine, Bookburners, and ReMade are also going to be on sale through April 5th. I’m not that familiar with ReMade (though I know it’s young adult science fiction),…

Review of Bookburners: “Live in London” by Max Gladstone

Bookburners: Live in London by Max Gladstone. Season Three: Episode 13. It’s the season three finale of Bookburners, and I’m sad the season’s over. Or at least that season four isn’t immediately available! Again, this isn’t an episode I can talk about without significant spoilers for the previous episodes in the season. If you want to…

Review of Bookburners: “Broken Vessels” by Brian Francis Slattery

Bookburners: “Broken Vessels” by Brian Francis Slattery. Season Three: Episode 12. Wow, this episode is a game changer of epic proportions. How do I even talk about this? Look, if your not up on season three, you’ve got some catching up to do because I’m going to dive right in to talking about where the Bookburners…

Review of Bookburners: “Crossing Over” by Margaret Dunlap

Bookburners: “Crossing Over” by Margaret Dunlap. Season Three: Episode 11. “Crossing Over” picks up directly where “Into the Woods” leaves off. There goes my hypothesis about a stand alone episode. Oh, well. As it happens, I’m glad “Crossing Over” went where it did. Ashanti and Frances are desperately trying to prevent whatever Hannah set into…

Review of Bookburners: “Into the Woods” by Andrea Phillips

Bookburners: “Into the Woods” by Andrea Phillips. Season Three: Episode 10. This latest installment of the urban fantasy serial Bookburners has some serious fairy tale vibes, and I’m loving it. Two children run away from their stepmother and into the woods. Soon they stumble upon a trail of candy and follow it into a house… and…

Review of Bookburners: “Homecoming” by Brian Francis Slattery

  Bookburners: “Homecoming by Brian Francis Slattery. Season Three: Episode 9. This episode manages to combine some character development for Menchú with some serious plot development. Team Three has been planning. Almost every incident with Hannah has involved her using a really old magical item. So why not look into old magic to figure out where…

Review of Bookburners: “Making Amends” by Mur Lafferty

Bookburners: “Making Amends” by Mur Lafferty. Season Three: Episode 8. Well, this episode was full of surprises. Liam, who’s still recovering from demonic possession, decides that he needs to apologize to the people he’s harmed. Mostly, this involves his ex-girlfriends. As backup, Menchú suggests that Sal and Grace go along with him. More time for team…

Review of Bookburners: “Cracks in the World” by Margaret Dunlap

Bookburners: “Cracks in the World” by Margaret Dunlap. Season Three: Episode 7. After last week’s episode, “Cracks in the World” can’t really compare. Also I’m still struggling with how to talk about Bookburners without spoilers. Let’s just say that Tom has resurfaced again and that Team Three has headed to Seattle to reclaim something he has in his…

Review of Bookburners: Oracle Bones by Max Gladstone

Bookburners: “Oracle Bones” by Max Gladstone. Season Three: Episode 6. I really loved this episode. How could I not? It focused on two of my favorite characters, Grace and Menchú. Grace and Menchú have been asked to return to China by the mysterious branch of the Chinese government that deals with magic. They’ve found an ancient building…

Review of Bookburners: “Time Capsule” by Mur Lafferty

Bookburners: “Time Capsule” by Mur Lafferty. Season Three: Episode 5. This week’s Bookburners was a lot of fun! First off, the Orb is pulsing. There’s not a current magical threat, but something is coming. And Menchú thinks he knows who is behind it all… Meanwhile, Sal’s got a problem of her own. Her parents are visiting Rome. She…
