Editorial Reviews


Praise for Generation V
“I loved M. L. Brennan’s Generation V. Engrossing and endearingly quirky, with a creative and original vampire mythos, it’s a treat for any urban fantasy lover!”—New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Chance
“Full of vivid characters and terrific world building, Generation V is a fun, fast-packed romp of a story that kept me glued to the pages to the very last word. Loved it! Bravo, M.L. Brennan, bravo!”—National Bestselling Author Devon Monk

About the Author

M. L. Brennan lives in Connecticut with her husband and three cats. Holding a master’s degree in fiction, she teaches basic composition to college students. After spending years writing and publishing short work in other genres, Brennan decided to branch out and write the kind of book that she loved to read, resulting in Generation V, her first full-length work of urban fantasy.

More About the Author

M.L. Brennan is the author of the critically acclaimed GENERATION V and its sequel, IRON NIGHT. The third book in the series, TAINTED BLOOD, is forthcoming in November 2014. Brennan holds an MFA in writing and is employed as an adjunct professor at several New England colleges.

Brennan cut her baby bibliophile teeth on her older brother's collection of Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert, but it was a chance encounter with Emma Bull's War For The Oaks as a teenager that led to genre true love. Today she'll read everything from Mary Roach's non-fiction to Brandon Sanderson's epic fantasies, but will still drop everything for vampires and werewolves in the big city.

There is humor, some gore, and action.
The Qwillery
As a unique new voice in urban fantasy, M.L. Brennan impressed me in 2013 with Generation V and her revitalization of the much used vampire trope.
Tabitha @ Not Yet Read
Generation V, the first book in this series, was one of the most pleasant reading surprised I had last year.

Urban Fantasy has a bit of a mixed reputation. Many folks see it as an excuse to write erotic detective novels with a cast made up of undead, werewolves, and as many other supernatural beasties as possible. I've never really gotten the appeal of that style novels preferring my urban fantasy to be a more action flick than soap opera. Which puts me firmly in the camp of avoiding any novel with a protagonist that seems to fit that mold. Which basically means vampires as a major part of the cast are essentially a deal breaker for me. M.L. Brennan's Generation V was an exception to that rule. With a protagonist is who is still refreshingly human despite his vampire status and an intriguing, original take on the vampire mythos Brennan set the stage for a urban fantasy novel that I could not only enjoy, but I could recommend to friends without fear of anyone casting aspersions on my masculinity. The sequel, Iron Night was one of my most anticipated novels of the year, and Brennan didn't let me down delivering a superior sequel that offers the perfect balance of humor, heart and action that left me hating myself for devouring the novel so quickly.

Since beginning his transition to true vampiric status, Fortitude Scott's life seems to have improved, he's finally free of his toxic ex-girlfriend, found a better job at an upscale restaurant, and he's found a roommate that not only pays the rent on time, but is actually becoming a friend. Sure, he's had to begin taking a larger role in maintaining the family business of keeping the supernatural beings in his mother's territory in line and is spending more time getting his ass kicked as he tries to learn how to fight, but life is looking up.

OMG I am LOVING this series!!!

Iron Night by ML Brennan is the second installment in my newest favorite series. Generation V was released last year and it quickly became one of my favorite reads of the year. Fort and Suzume are such well crafted characters and the world the author produced is absolutely unique. It’s a book that stayed with me long after I was finished reading it and I was very anxious for the second book to release. You could say I had very high hopes for book two and I am happy to say that the book met each and every one of my expectations.

And then some.

Fort is a vampire but he has not finished transitioning into a full vampire yet. That means he’s a little bit vampire and a little bit human. When we meet him in book one he is fighting what he is becoming, vulnerable and scared. When we see him in this second book, he is a bit more comfortable with his role in his family and his ‘race’, but he’s still learning. In fact, his brother is showing him the ropes. That opening scene is SO FUNNY! Lines such as “This is why we don’t name or pet the goats.” made me laugh so hard. I love the humor in these books. It’s smart and witty humor – my favorite kind.

But back to Fort.

He is more confident but he still has that awkwardness and vulnerability that makes him so likable and so endearing. But I loved his growth and I love his moral making. He’s not cold like a vampire usually should be – he truly cares about the wellbeing of others, friends and strangers alike, and that is yet another thing I love about him.

Can you tell that I absolutely adore this character? He is definitely going on my favorite character list.

Another character that I absolutely love is Suzume. She is a kitsune, a fox shifter.

I gave the first book in this series three stars. I read the sequel today. And I'm glad to say its much improved.

The protagonist is not as lame as he was in the first book. He actually uses his brain now from time to time. All in all, he is much less annoying, a problem which caused me to pull out of the first book more than a few times and detracted from the story.

I also think the author is a gifted writer. Her style and world-building are exceptional.

One nitpick- the author persists in making obvious rookie errors about firearms. An Ithaca 37 pump shotgun does NOT fire shells ranging from 20 gauge to 12 gauge. The gauge is much like the caliber of other firearms, you can fire one but not the others. I think the author assumed that if one had a 12 gauge, the weapon can also fire the smaller shells. This is not the case. A 12 gauge fires 12 gauge shells, a 16 gauge 16 gauge shells, 20 gauge, etc. But this is a minor quibble.

Recommended. I'm looking forward to the third.

Iron Night is the second novel in the Generation V / Fortitude Scott series by M. L. Brennan. In the first novel, Generation V, we were introduced to Fortitude Scott, a vampire who had not yet begun to transition from human to vampire, who is trying to avoid being a vampire, is a slacker and initially not a character that I really liked. I did like him very much by the end of the first novel. In Iron Night, Fortitude (Fort) is back along with his mom, siblings Prudence and Chivalry, and Suzume (a shapeshifter). Since the end of the first novel, Fort has been training with his brother and learning the family business from him not only because he's started his vampiric transformation, but because he is tired of being beat up and has family responsibilities that he is beginning to accept. Fort is not your average vampire and M. L. Brennan's vampire mythology is just as fantastic and different as Fort is.

Iron Night is as much about Fort slowing growing into his vampire side and becoming a better person as it is a story about a mystery set off by the gruesome death of Fort's roommate - a roommate that Fort got along with, liked and who actually paid the rent on time. Fort lives in a low rent area of town, works as a waiter and drives a wreck of a Fiesta. Yes, his family has incredible wealth, but Fort is trying to hang on to his human side. This is one of Fort's charms: despite being in the beginnings of his transition to full vampire he still embraces his human side and while accepting what his family is does not fully give in to them. He does however start to understand that his vampire side gives him certain physical advantages (while scaring him at the same time). Fort is also awkward with women which is incredibly charming. His internal narrative about this is particularly amusing.
