    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Story

    I have heard of the Dresden Files but never read them. I have read the Harry Bosch series and the Dragonlance Chronicles and enjoyed both. So I thought I'd like the idea of this series.

    Storm Front feels like a gritty detective novel with the concepts of magic, demons, and other fantasy concepts in the world.

    I truly enjoyed the book and was engrossed by the main character Harry Dresden. Very much seems to have just about everything against him but he is just a good guy trying to get through life with the cards deal to him. I'll definitively try the next book.

After a brutal attack on the Manticoran home system, Honor Harrington and the Star Kingdom she serves battle back against a new, technologically powerful, and utterly nefarious enemy. And as if that weren’t task enough, Honor must also face down a centuries-old nemesis in the crumbling, but still mighty, Solarian League.

    Story

    A Rising Thunder was a long wait for us Honor Harrington fans. For those of us that were hooked after Basilisk Station by the space battles and how Honor had a force of will, A Rising Thunder is more of a sign that the series has morphed into something else.

    Most of the book has nothing to do with Honor Harrington. It talks about the entire Honorverse. What is going on all over the galaxy. All the intrigue. It is an amazing universe that I think would be a very interesting MMO. But I just didn't feel the love of the older books here. Especially with the long wait for this book. I was disappointed.

    Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet--and himself--in harm's way. An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears.

    Story

    I have been itching for the release of the latest in the Lost Fleet. Invincible delivered all that I have come to expect from Geary and the Lost Fleet story. Military Science Fiction with Space Battles delivered with excitement. I had no idea how Geary was going to get out of the bind the fleet was in. Now set up for the next book I will be waiting eagerly.

    I'd recommend anyone that enjoyed the original Honor Harrington before it was mostly covered in the political intrigue would love the Lost Fleet series. Don't start with this book. Start with The Lost Fleet: Dauntless.

    The only negative I can think to say about Invincible is I enjoyed it so much I am really wishing it wasn't over. So waiting for the next book is going to be long.
