    This series has always had the power to draw readers in. But where other stories seem to lose something when the world or history expands, Beasts of Burden has gotten better, and Beasts of Burden: Occupied Territory #3 is a must read. Read Full Review

    Beasts of Burden moves us through a lot of discovery here and some decent action, which doesn't work well for Mullins toward the end, leaving me hopeful that it'll find a way to work out because I like the little guy. I'm always wary of a book that dips into Japanese folklore and the like because we've seen such basic and casual understanding of it before, but the team here gets it pretty well and with a lot of interesting details that help to make it stand out all the more. I'm excited to see more of this storyline and how deep the mystery goes and how far Emrys will have to go in order to make things right as much as he can. Read Full Review
