This is a great finish to this book series……or is it?? I just discovered that the author is writing a fourth Gunnie Rose book (release date 2022) – no idea what the plot will be because the main storyline of this series wrapped up in this book, but there are definitely enough loose ends to continue the series another several books, which I would love.Continue reading “The Russian Cage (Gunnie Rose #3) by Charlaine Harris”
Durst has done it again -written a fantastic, can’t-put-down, stand alone fantasy book. I love her writing, I love her characters and I love her original story-telling. I get excited every time she releases a new book – and this one does not disappoint.
The story is set in the kingdom of Vos. The kingdom has bone makers who can animate bones to create objects that can do a variety of things, like clean, send messages, etc. They also create charms that give people a limited amount of “super-powers”, like strength, speed, stealth, etc. These creations are made from animal bones – the use of human bones is illegal.Continue reading “The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst”
I LOVED Ready Player One and read it in one sitting. So, I was super excited when I heard the author was writing a sequel. While I liked this book, it pales in comparison to the first one. But hey, what do you expect? The first book was brilliant and I’m not surprised I didn’t like the second one as much.Continue reading “Ready Player Two (Ready Player One, #2) by Ernest Cline”
For me, this science fiction book is a miss. I just couldn’t get into it. It is well-written and packed with action, but it just didn’t interest me.Continue reading “Persephone Station by Stina Leicht”
3. 5 stars
This is a cute, light and fluffy first book in a new YA SciFi series.
Adam is an android that escaped from a biological company and settled down in a nearby town called Ashwater. He’s an android/human hybrid, with a computer processor for a brain, as well as a host of weaponry he can use to eliminate threats. But, he is also just an 18 year old boy that is hungry all the time, likes to play video games and dance, and just got a crush on a girl named Evie.Continue reading “Ashwater (Ashwater #1) by Melissa Koberlein”
This is a fantastic first book in an exciting YA Fantasy/SciFi series. There is a strong, flawed female lead, complicated relationships, creepy monsters and plenty of action. It’s a quick read and I couldn’t put it down.Continue reading “Skyhunter (Skyhunter #1) by Marie Lu”
This is a very good first book in an exciting new fantasy series. It has interesting characters, multiple storylines and focuses more on magic than sword fighting. I’m not a huge fan of books focused on magic, but this isn’t the wizard-wielding type of magic. It’s much more subtle and sinister.Continue reading “The Bone Shard Daughter (The Drowning Empire #1) by Andrea Stewart”
Holy hell – what did I just read?? This is a fantastic first book in a new apocalyptic Science Fiction/Horror book series. It has an explosive beginning (literally) and doesn’t let up until the frenetic cliffhanger ending.Continue reading “Monstre: Volume One by Duncan Swan”
This is an entertaining, funny romp through the apocalypse with S.T., a fowl-mouthed crow, and his owner’s trusty dim-witted dog, Dennis.Continue reading “Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton”
