Round Trip Fare by Barb Taub

You know how when you wait and wait for a sequel to come out and then it finally comes and you read it and it’s so great that you just have to go back and re-read all the books that came before it while wondering why you didn’t do that before it came out to make the reading of it even more enjoyable and then debate with yourself if you really should just re-read the sequel again even though you just finished it mere days ago …


This book is just like that.Round_Trip_Fare-Barb_Taub-500x800

Would I recommend it? Yes! This book can be read as a stand alone but, it’ll be much better if you read the rest of the Null City books first.

Or second.

Or first and second.

Basically you just need to read them all because once you enter Barb Taub’s world of urban fantasy where super powers sometimes just suck, angles aren’t always what you’d expect them to be, and with a short ride on a sentient Metro you can arrive at Null City where superpowers will fade into a thing of the past,  you aren’t going to want to leave. The men are just too good looking (and tattooed), the imps make fabulous coffee (once they’ve been living in Null City for a bit anyway), the women kick butt (with large amounts of sass and style) and the dogs are awesome. Sure, you may very occasionally raise an eyebrow at the “convenience” of a character’s actions but don’t let it get to you. Focus on the snarky dialogue, the tattoos and the Firefly references and you’ll be having too much fun to care!

Round Trip Fare comes out on Thursday (Yeah, I totally got an advanced copy. And yeah, it’s pretty much reader heaven.) Luckily for you the first of the bunch, One Way Fare, is FREE right now!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    I did that with Harry Potter! In fact I will still head off for a HP fix now and again and re-read them all. Must admit I’m a fan of Barb’s witty dialogue and fun characters and I SO want to buy a ticket and travel on the train.

    • Jessie says:

      I love the dialogue, makes me snort laugh too often! I’m not sure I want to travel on that train though, I’ve never been a fan of roller coasters…

    You know how you open a blog post and go absolutely ape shit and dance around the house laughing like a fool?


    This review is JUST like that.

    Wow! I’m just so happy that you liked it! And I can’t begin to thank you for this so-very-Jessie review!!!! (Can I get in a few more !!!!!?)

    • Jessie says:

      I did I did. And really, how could I not? Firefly (“I can kill you with my brain” was PERFECT) and an awesome dog and the banter… It’s like you wrote it for me! So I’ll tell you what, you write another book and I’ll give it another “so-very-Jessie review.” Deal?

    Oooh, I can’t wait to read these books! They’re almost at the top of my TBR pile, and I’m starting to get antsy. Love Barb’s sense of humor, and I know I’m going to enjoy the books, too! Great review!

  6. Great review, Jessie. It sounds like a great book, a lot of fun reading. 🙂 — Suzanne Joshi
