Book Review: The Savage Blue

The Savage Blue picks up where The Vicious Deep left off. Tristan and his group are now in search of the three pieces are the Trident in order to secure Tristan's claim to the throne. While I really enjoyed The Vicious Deep, there is a part of me that loved The Savage Blue ten times more. Maybe it was the action. Maybe it was being able to get a better understanding of our characters and what they are going through. Honestly, I am not really too sure. But whatever it was that was lacking from The Vicious Deep, The Savage […]

Book Review: The Vicious Deep

Every now and then, I get a craving for mermaids. Thinking that I had read all my mermaid related reads, I was surprised to stumble upon The Vicious Deep. Wanting the read to be a surprise, I decided to skip the summary and start it based on what I could remember, which was something along the lines of scary mermaids. Wrong… sort of. The Vicious Deep introduces us to Tristan, a young man who after a near-death experience with a wave discovers that he is a merman. There is a lot more to it than that, but I don't want […]

Book Review: A Bad Day for ..

Book Review: A Bad Day for Voodoo

I picked this book up with really no idea of how much wonderful gore, insanity and well.. more insanity would ensue while reading this book. I can't believe this book is more than 200 pages. It felt like I read it in an hour – as in it was the most enthralling crazy ride of a book I've read in a while.   A Bad Day for Voodoo is fantastic. I don't know that I will be able to find the words to describe this. Here's a few phrases – a gang gunfight, homicidal family that makes human sacrifices, zombies, […]

Book Review: Embrace

Book Review: Embrace

Another angel book. How I wish I could quit these.   Violet, our MC, hates her birthday. It is an everlasting memory of the mother that she has lost. However, unlike every other birthday, this one brings strange occurrences along with it. Weird tattoos that appear out of thin air. Vivid dreams. And the discovery that she is more than she ever imagined.   Embrace started on a positive note. I liked Violet, even if she was a bit whiny. And the premise, for an angel book, was very well done. On the surface, Embrace has plenty of elements to […]

Book View: The Predicteds

Book View: The Predicteds

Short and Sweet: What if there was a program could predict that could bad things before it happened? If it knew who the "bad apples" were and could allow for possible future situations to be avoided? Questions such as these make up a large chunk of The Predicteds. Should we know? If we do know, how to we use this information?   The Predicteds was a conflicting read. On one hand, I loved the possibilities for the book. Futuristic science and human nature trying to go hand in hand, it is just a recipe for disaster. And The Predicteds did […]

Book Review: The Quest of the Warrior Sheep

I've heard of the picture book Russell the Sheep and instantly picked up on the connection between the chapter book and the picture book as soon as I saw this one. It looked like a fun middle grade read, so I picked it up.   This book will have you laughing and laughing hard. The sheep have such personality and they are diligent on their quest to find Lord Aries and help save this almost god-like figure from trouble. Paralleling the sheep side of the story is a story of bank robbers who have lost their cell phone, the same […]

Book Review: Summer (Beautiful Dead, #3)

The third novel in the Beautiful Dead series focuses on Summer. The once beautiful girl who it seemed had everything until she was shot by an unknown assailant. Now it is up to Darina to solve this crime so that Summer will be able to move now. But things will not be so easy for Darina this time around.   Like the previous novels, Summer begins a little on the slow side. Honestly, I think this just maybe Maguire style. And either way, it is what it is. I have gotten use to it by this point in the game, and […]

Book View: The Water Wars

Book View: The Water Wars

Short and Sweet: The Water Wars takes place in the not too distant future. In this world, water has become the be all to end all. It is more valued than gas… food… it is what makes the world go round… governments fight over it… I think you get the idea. Before The Water Wars was released, I was really excited about this book. The premise sounded promising. The concept seemed different. But once I dived into the pages, I was surprised to find it as dry as the landscapes that Stracher describes. The characters were on point. I loved […]
