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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

[ARC Review] Waistcoats and Weponry by Gail Carriger

First, I have to say that I am a big fan of Gail Carriger and the world she has created. I was first introduced to this world in Soulless, an adult novel, and liked it so much that I had to start reading about the world of Victorian Paranormal Steampunk through the eyes of a young lady in training. I have to say that I have liked every Finishing School story I have read, and Waistcoats and Weaponry is no exception. The thing I like most about these books is that Soulless and Finishing School books can be read together… Read more »

[Review] Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey

When I first started Sandman Slim I was under the assumption that this would be just another paranormal detective novel. I was wrong. Sandman Slim follows the actions of James Stark after he has returned to the mortal realm, from hell. And what did he do in hell, battle monsters, slave to demons, oh, and he was a hitman for one of the princes of hell. But he is much more than that, he is also a magic user of significant strength. I was captivated by the whimsey and humor of the protagonist’s exploits. There really was never a dull… Read more »
