I really, really and I mean I really liked Stillhouse Lake. I liked it so much that I now have quite a few people in my office at work reading Stillhouse Lake right now. So, it should be no surprise, I was super excited to read the sequel Killman Creek. Killman Creek took off right where the Stillhouse Lake left off. Gwen is on the run and searching for her ex-husband now that he has escaped prison. With the help of Sam, Gwen decides to go after him. Of course, that is what you do when you don’t want to… Read more »

The Ghostwriter By Alessandra Torre Genre: Psychological Suspense / General Fiction Standalone, 316 pages   SYNOPSIS: I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me. My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers.

[Review] Steel World by B. V. Larson

Chris's Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

15 January

Steel World is the first in the Undying Mercenaries series, and why are they called the undying mercenaries? Quite simple actually, because as long as they can be confirmed dead, and their files are on record, they can be revived / cloned / reconstructed, whatever word you choose for the process. All this is because Earth only has one trade good to sell to the galactic empire, the lives of its warriors. The universe in which Steel World takes place is interesting, and the main characters catch your attention. The story is highly believable, another race tries to prove they… Read more »

I kind of actually liked this book and didn’t think it was as bad as some of the other reviews I had seen. It was a fast paced read that I was able to finish quickly. I think the story is more of3.5 read because while I liked the overall story I did feel like Maddie could have maybe done more to help with the investigation. I liked Maddie, she did cry a lot, but there was a lot going on in her life. The story felt a little like the other side of an adult mystery novel. Her uncle… Read more »

[ARC Review] All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

When I first started reading this book it didn’t take long to figure out Finch’s mental health issues reminded me of someone I know. I didn’t think I would like this book because I usually don’t like reading books with characters that hit a little too to home to be comfortable. This is not something I always discuss with strangers but I have a parent that was eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Growing up we didn’t know what it was so the extreme mood swings were normal just like they are for Finch’s family. It is not the family’s fault… Read more »

[Review] Koban: Rise of the Kobani by Stephen W. Bennett

Chris's Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

18 December

The first book of the Koban series caught my attention. This second installment kept it and held me tightly to the story universe as it drove deeper into the characters. This third installment has me begging for even more. This book picks up not long after the events in the second book. The Kobani with their pirated alien ships are about to introduce themselves back into the human worlds and demonstrate what they can do to win the war against the alien invaders. Along the way they face a multitude of challenges and gain some allies, both human and alien…. Read more »

11 December

I was both excited and regretful to read this book. Excited because I have loved this series from the beginning. Regretful because this is the final installment of the Black Tide Rising Series. Over the series I have come to enjoy following the adventures of Steven “Wolf” Smith and his family as they lead the effort to restore civilization after a “zombie” apocalypse. And the family hi-jinx continue in this latest book, complete with dealing with idiots who think the rules of the pre-plague world still exist. I won’t give away any spoilers here, but I will say John Ringo… Read more »

The refugees left behind on Koban to die are flourishing. With the aid of their genetic enhancements and good old human known how they are settling a death world of giant insects, vicious beasts, and heavy gravity. For those left behind and their next generations of children, life is good. Back in human territory the Krall have begun their invasion which they plan will take 1,000 years to destroy the 700+ human worlds. But they fail to observe the obvious, we humans stopped fighting wars because we were too damn good at it. I love sci-fi military fiction, and this… Read more »

[Review] The Contortionist’s Handbook by Craig Clevenger

19 November

I read this book for the book club that I attend with my friends and I. My friend picked the book for this month, and it was about as far from YA and fantasy as you can get. You know, if you don’t count the late 1980’s as a world far away. The main character, if still alive, would actually be somewhere around my Dad’s age. He deals with his time and his issues within his time. Everything seems so backwards, without the internet, but the premise was still pretty interesting. Our main character crafts identities for himself, new identities… Read more »
