Hate the cover, but the story is pretty good! Reread before “Serpentine”. The 4 Horsepersons of the Monster killing world get together to figure out who is doing the gruesome killings, and if the real goal is to get Anita away from her power-base*. Who’s in charge of the hunt? Edward tried to get a … More Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton
Absolutely non-stop action. Also, not hitting your former superior officer shows character growth, yeah? Sometimes Torin surprises herself. I want the next book RIGHT NOW.
Multi-generational politics last a lot longer when your antagonists range from 400 to 2,000 years old. I didn’t completely follow all the details, just surfed over the top. Fun adventure, that way. New: Jane is putting things together faster, to figure out how to save the day and gain more for herself. Ricky-bo has an … More Cold Reign by Faith Hunter
Someone got hurt… died? … at the Parent Party, but it’s really no one’s fault. Or everyone’s fault. We have conflicting views on this. I love the little interview bits at the beginning of each chapter, such a lovely way to sneak in information. Family secrets, remarriages, children dealing with parents, parents dealing with children, … More Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
What a fun story. Follows Atticus of the ever-changing name, Granuille, and Owen as they have adventures and eventually meet up again. Everyone has an epiphany to go with the adventure, it’s cool. Also, doggies. Irish wolfhounds are the best, just ask them. Assorted witches, vampires, werewolves, and tree-of-life magic users, and assorted gods. Fun … More Staked (The Iron Druid Chronicles #8) by Kevin Hearne
Action packed adventure, but when a Gunnery Sgt changes to Peacekeeper, she does not forget how to think, and pay attention to the details.
A most excellent book for a heat wave. Just enough plot to hold the book together. Also: Love! Betrayal! (but not too much.) Flirting! Rude officers! Pretty officers! Pretty boys! Fighting! (injury, but not too much dying.) The Running of the Bulls! Jealous co-worker! Spanish romantic guitar music! Roma! (not gypsies, thank you very much.) … More Viva Jacquelina! the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, Over the Hills and Far Away by L.A. Meyer
Reread. I have decided hat this is actually 2 book in one. Plot: Anita raises life-like zombies, and so does Some Evil Person. Conflict! Pages: 1-33. 90-95. 105-126. 224-327. 346-356. 452-468. 503-556. Relationships: Anita has too many boyfriends, she will now add some girlfriends, and Asher is messing up worse than ever. Anita is back … More Dead Ice by Laurell K. Hamilton
Too many tests this season. Time for a reread of a really good series. It’s a rare series that just keeps getting better – every time the plot seems to get a bit stale, it takes a hard right and turns into something else that, on re-read, was carefully built up over the last two … More Magic Series – Kate Daniel – by Ilona Andrews
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman My rating: 5 of 5 stars Dragons are the enemy – and Seraphina’s mother was one. If a war starts between the humans and the dragons, what will happen to her? Will music save her life? Will the Saints lives provide a clue or do their collective writings mean Seraphina should … More
