Melissa's Review:

Owl and the Electric Samurai is book three in The Adventures of Owl series. I've really enjoyed all the action and adventure we've seen in this series so far so I knew I had to grab this book. A little refresher for this series is that Alix aka Owl is an antiquities thief, and she works for a dragon. He sends her on missions and she generally gets into a ton of trouble along the way.

We start off with Alix Hiboux on the hunt for an artifact. When she brings it back to Las Vegas and talks with her boss she finds out the elves are seeking her services in finding a piece of armor that has a nasty streak. Her missions are getting more and more difficult due to The International Archaeology Association (IAA) wanting her to find the designers of the video game she adores. They're the ones in charge of not letting the supernatural artifacts getting leaked to the public. They've already screwed Alix over before, though and they're now sending mercenaries because she's not doing as they bid. All roads are seeming to lead to Shangri-La and with the mercenaries tailing them everywhere they go it's not going to be an easy mission.

Owl and the Electric Samurai is a modern Indian Jane read with paranormal bits intertwined. I've come to really enjoy this series since the leading lady is a gamer and is trying to be something other than a no good antiquities thief. There's a bit of romance mixed into the story which I love but all the places Alix travels to gives me a serious case of wanderlust. This was an excellent addition to the series, we find out more about the duo behind the video game and how it's so eerily similar to where artifacts are hiding in real life. It does leave off with a new can of worms opened so I cannot wait to see what the next book brings us. If you're a fan of paranormal treasure hunter type stories you won't want to miss this series.

  4. Treasure hunter??? It's been a long time since I came across a book featuring treasure hunting. I also haven't read an urban fantasy novel in a long time as well. I really want to do a UF marathon or something!

    Anyway, great review! Have a fantastic weekend, Lily. =)
