Too Wyrd by Sarah Buhrman

I was in the mood for Urban Fantasy and certainly found it with Sarah Buhrman's Too Wyrd, Book 1 in her Runespell series.

Momma Says 5 out 5 stars
Too Wyrd is wonderfully written in first person POV with main character, Nicola, telling her story. The story fits very nicely into the Urban Fantasy genre with magic, demons, and Norse mythology creating a fast-paced story that certainly held my interest. There is some strong language and a few suggestive lines and scenes, but I didn't find anything that I would feel uncomfortable with my teen reading. Honestly, they see worse on television than I found in this book. Check out that cover! It certainly fits the title...

Too Wyrd is Urban Fantasy at its finest. The story is captivating and the characters feel so real that they practically leap off the page. The story starts simply enough with a trip into the city to find Nicola's wayward step-sister quickly turns into a non-stop race to save the world.

Magic, demons, the Norse pantheon, a deadbeat ex, a very persistent detective, and some pretty amazing friends combine to make a heart racing tale that kept me turning pages into the wee hours of the night. The story is fast-paced and riveting with lots of action and characters that you'll love and some that you'll love to hate.

When I started reading this one, Sarah Buhrman was new to me and now I'm wondering how I missed this talented author. Rest assured, I won't be missing anymore, she'll be on my go-to list from now on, right up there with the likes of Jim Butcher. (Huge Dresden Files fan here!)

If you enjoy Urban Fantasy, be sure to check this one out. It's available in ebook and paperback format at Amazon, here. It's also listed on Kindle Unlimited. The paperback format is also available at Barnes & Noble, here.

Thanks for joining me!



  1. This is one of the most wonderful reviews I've ever read. More to the point I'm Sarah Buhrman's husband and you can find all for here writing on her website and the second book in the Runespell series is due out sometime this fall.

    1. It isn't hard to write a good review when the material is so good. Nothing but praise for this one!
