    At a remote ice station in Antarctica, a team of US scientists has made an amazing discovery. They have found something buried deep within a 100-million-year-old layer of ice. Something made of metal. Led by enigmatic Lieutenant Shane Schofield, a team of crack United States Marines is sent to the station to secure this discovery for their country.

    Story

    which made me mad, reduced my enjoyment.

    STORY BRIEF:
    U.S. researchers in Antarctica discover something buried in an ice cave. They believe it is an alien spaceship. Divers were killed while looking at it. They don’t know why. They send out a distress signal. Other countries hear the call and want the spaceship. So they send military groups to fight for it. Lieutenant Schofield is the first to arrive with a group of marines. His goal is to protect the researchers and the discovery. An enemy military group soon arrives with better weapons and more men. Their intent is to kill everyone.

    The most frequently used weapon is Schofield’s mag gun. It shoots a grappling hook and a magnetic end with a long cable attached. The author used this gun in many different and creative ways.

    Some good guys are killed, but it has a happy ending for other good guys.

    OPINION:
    This feels like 50 scenes of pulse-pounding action, fast and furious fighting. It was crisis after crisis even at the end. A lot of them were imaginative. This should appeal to video game lovers (those of them who like to read). In many scenes Schofield is about to be killed, but he finds some little thing or something unexpected which gets him out of it. It reminded me of MacGiver.

    This was exciting, but I don’t want to read any more. I want more than chase, defend, attack. I want characters and other things. I prefer the Jack Reacher books over this.

    INTERRUPTING SCENES:
    This author did something that made me so mad and too many times. It’s a cheap trick/device. He interrupts scenes at the moment of realization or crisis - at the worst time for the reader. He doesn’t need to do that. This is already nonstop suspense. Here’s an example. A is wounded and in a hospital bed. B enters the room with a knife planning to kill A. A secretly switches on a microphone. Scene switches to C on another floor talking to a guy. Scene switches back to B smashing the microphone. Scene switches to C, still talking. Scene switches to A who is bloody but won the fight with B. The A scene was split into three pieces, and it was a short scene. (As an aside we missed the best part - how did wounded A win the fight with B?)

    Here’s another example, Schofield finds a transmitter and wonders what it’s for. Then all of a sudden he realizes the answer. But the scene switches to something else without telling the reader what he realized.

    If the author had not used these tricks I would have given the book more stars. But I cannot like something when I’m frustrated and mad over and over again.

    SUSPENDING DISBELIEF:
    I don’t mind suspending disbelief - for fun. And you need to do that A LOT. But there was one thing that really bothered me and I really needed an explanation. Large elephant seals are eating humans. A bad guy injures A and throws him into the ocean. So why does an elephant seal grab A in the water, put him back on the deck, and then leave? He saved A’s life. I’d be willing to accept this if you give me an explanation. Did he like A’s smell or something? What?

    NARRATOR:
    He was very good except for his accent on two words - on almost every page. It was distracting. Most of the characters are Americans, and they don’t talk like that. He said “been” (like it rhymes with green) and “again” (like the word “gain”). I’m not sure what his accent is but it doesn’t sound like U.S. marines. It was unsettling. I think the narrator should have changed his pronunciation just for those two words.

    GENRE: action suspense

    SPOILER answers the question: Are aliens in this story?

    CAUTION SPOILER:
    All the fighting and suspense is among the various military groups. There are no aliens in this story.

    Deadly Game begins as a mission to protect a politician from an assassination threat. But the operation takes an unexpected turn when Mari, a mysteriously beautiful GhostWalker, is taken hostage. At the same time, Ken Norton, expert assassin and himself a GhostWalker warrior, is on a mission of his own - one that reaches into Mari's own past. No stranger to the ways of violent warfare, Mari must join forces with Ken and trust his every move - each one more intimate than the last.

    Story

    Not enough external action happening.

    I read 49% of the book. Here is the first scene which is good. Ken and his brother Jack are outside guarding a home. Some military guys arrive. Ken and Jack shoot and wound one of them. The others leave. Ken and Jack realize the wounded guy is Mari the long lost sister of Jack’s wife.

    CAUTION SPOILER (as to the first half of the book):
    They take Mari to a medical facility to treat her wounds. She tries to escape once, but Ken catches her within minutes. She and Ken are sexually drawn to each other. They have sex. That’s it – for half the book. All the rest is writing about Ken’s and Mari’s thoughts, feelings, fears, and ponderings. It’s all internal and repetitive. Mari talks about her life as a prisoner of Whitney and being experimented on with physical and psychic enhancements. If she does not go back to the compound, Whitney will kill her fellow prisoners. Whitney wanted her to get pregnant by a specific guy, so Mari was repeatedly beaten and raped. Ken thinks and talks about his torture in the Congo. The skin on his back was stripped off and the rest of his body was cut making him look like a quilt - even his sexual organs. He fears he can never have sex again. He had a horrible father and fears he will be like his father. He also was enhanced with Whitney’s drugs, but he was not kept at the compound the way Mari was. He repeatedly asks Mari to tell him where the compound is so he and Jack can rescue the others, but Mari won’t tell him.
    END SPOILER.

    Everything is about what happened in the past. There is no current action, like Ken going somewhere, interacting with people or the environment, doing things, changing things. Instead it’s worries and thinking about the past. The past would be ok if the author showed “action” in the past – like how Ken arrived in the Congo, who was with him, what they said and did, what happened when bad guys took him prisoner, the details of how he got rescued, etc. Or things and conversations happening in Mari’s past. But no past action details were told.

    Maybe the second half of the book is different. Many readers enjoyed this, so I say great. It’s just not the kind of writing I like.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Tom Stechschulte was good, as usual.

    Damaris Chance's unhappy past has turned her off the idea of marriage forever. But her guardian, Lady Beatrice Davenham, convinces her to make her coming out anyway - and have a season of carefree, uncomplicated fun. When Damaris finds herself trapped in a compromising situation with the handsome rake Freddy Monkton-Coombes, she has no choice but to agree to wed him - as long as it's in name only. Her new husband seems to accept her terms, but Freddy has a plan of his own: To seduce his reluctant winter bride.

    Story

    Like the first book in the series, this is not great writing, but I felt good while reading it. The happiness flowed into my other life. And that makes it 5 stars for me.

    I wish more regency romances were like this. Too many authors use inaccurate assumptions and secrets for excessive drama and suspense. Gracie does not. I’m not talking about Damaris keeping a secret about her past. That was reasonable. Here’s an example of something I liked. After sex, Damaris makes an assumption that is wrong. Another author would have Damaris leave the guy and not say why. But Gracie has the guy sense something wrong, ask her about it, and not give up until she tells him. So she tells him, and then he explains why the assumption is wrong. I was pleased because I am used to other authors who would draw that out for extended conflict. Sometimes I don’t mind drawing it out, but many times I do.

    I loved the character Freddy. He was entertaining. He fears and avoids muffins (irritating females chasing him for marriage). Aunt Bea mistakenly thinks he likes to eat baked muffins. He does not correct her. So she frequently serves him muffins, and then he has to think of ways to avoid eating them, like throwing one in the fire, but then he worries there might be a smell.

    HEROINE WAS RAPED IN THE PAST.
    Some readers might want to know this. The rapes were not shown in detail, but they were mentioned. The f-word was used regarding this.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    I really enjoyed the narrator Alison Larkin. I frequently complain when a female narrator uses a weird voice for the hero, and Larkin used a weird voice for Freddy. He did not sound sexy at all. He almost sounded comical. But this narrator is so wonderful with emotional interpretations - I loved it, weird Freddy and all. I loved the way she interpreted Mrs. Jenkins (a very minor character) who was Damaris’ boss at the pottery shop. I plan to look for more books that she narrates. However, one of my friends was disappointed with the narrator, so it’s a personal preference.

Instead of treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham, bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory servants and-with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation-the four young ladies become her "nieces," neatly eliminating the threat of disaster for all concerned!

    Story

    Emotionally fulfilling.

    This is not a great book, but I’m giving it 5 stars because I was in such a happy mood during the two days I was listening to it. I was smiling all the time – during and not during.

    It reminded me of Georgette Heyer books. I like the author’s choices - what the characters do, how they react, what they say. There was a blackmail attempt and my initial reaction was uh oh, this could be a downer. But it wasn’t. The author did not string it out with secrets and drama. I felt good with what happened. It was not what most authors do. That is still strange to me. I give the author credit. I like her choices.

    I liked the way Lady Bea would call Abby Miss Burglar. I liked the way Bea did not like vegetables. I liked Freddy’s attitude and fear of muffins (irritating females chasing him for marriage).

    The only thing off for me was sex before marriage did not fit the characters. I would have preferred seeing the wedding first. I also would have liked more romantic relationship development – seeing Abby and Max spending time together.

    NARRATOR:
    The audiobook narrator Alison Larkin did an excellent job. I loved her emotional interpretation of characters. She made Freddy sound odd, but that was ok. Her voice for the heroine reminded me of Julie Andrews -- lovely. I was surprised that a friend of mine was disappointed with the narrator. So this clearly is a personal preference thing.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Story

    And the audiobook narration was unpleasant.

    Not my kind of book, but I think this will appeal to two types of readers. 1. Those who liked The Cuckoo’s Calling. 2. Those who like the challenge of trying to guess who did it, and how, and don’t mind a tell-all at the end.

    Regarding 2: At about 80% into the book Strike says I know who did it. He tells Robin his assistant. He also tells her his plan of action for what he wants to do to catch the killer. The reader does not hear this. The reader is kept guessing as to who did it and what the plan of action is. The result is a tell-all at the end. I prefer learning what the PI learns as he learns it.

    I felt that most of the characters were unpleasant and the conversations were unpleasant. I did not enjoy listening to them. The exception was Robin. I liked her story and her scenes. But hers was a minor part.

    I wish the author would go back to the wonderful creative genius writing she did in Harry Potter. Her three books since then have been disappointing – for me. The biggest reason has been unpleasant characters.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    I love listening to an upper class British accent, but I quickly tired of the accent used by the narrator Robert Glenister. I can take it in small amounts but not the whole book. The accent used for Strike and many characters was “loo wha I goh” (instead of “look what I got”).

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I was reluctant to read this because I was not interested in a Kennedy conspiracy-analysis book. I was surprised and pleased that half of the story was about other things – time travel, interesting characters, and things they do. Jake makes more than one time-travel-trip because he sees consequences of his actions and wants to redo things. Another neat idea was the Past does not want to be changed, and each time makes it difficult for Jake in different ways. And more neat ideas. Aside from the tear jerker part, the overall plot has a happy ending which I liked.

    THINGS I DID NOT LIKE:

    HISTORICAL ACCURACY AND DEPRESSING:
    King said he read a stack of books almost as tall as he was – for research. About 2/3 the way through there are 200 or more pages about Oswald in Texas and fictional Jake in Fort Worth and Dallas. I assume King is being factually accurate, but I don’t want facts from King; I want his imagination. That part of the book is dull. (If King were creating the character Oswald, he could put interesting and weird things in Oswald’s head. But we are not in Oswald’s head because King is being factual. Instead we get a textbook.)

    Toward the end of the Oswald section, I was depressed and frustrated. I’m not sure why – something about the helplessness of so many bad things happening to Jake including amnesia. I’ve been ok with other books having bad things happen to the main character, but for some reason this was a downer. (On the day when I was reading this part, I felt too bad to talk to one of my friends.)

    FIRST PERSON.
    I don’t like first person narrative books. In third person I lose myself in the story. In first person I feel like I’m listening to someone talk. They experienced it not me. So when I started this book and realized it was first person, my reaction was “ohhhh noooo.” But I do have to say the author did it well.

    TEAR JERKER ENDING.
    I don’t want to read books that make me cry, and this one did. The reason for crying is in the Spoiler below.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Craig Wasson’s voice was ok. He did women well which is hard for male narrators to do. But I did not like the way he frequently laughed. It was like a nervous laugh or a chuckle that was NOT written in the text. It took me out of the story. I’m thinking “why is he laughing?” Here are three examples. I use caps for the words where he laughed.
    “As I’ve said living in the past IS CONFUSING.”
    “I spotted something on the floor of the backseat that made me flush with a sense of guilt that WAS FAR OUT of proportion to what the object was.” (It was a library book which he forgot to return.)
    “I had a fine car, a car I’d sort of fallen in love with to TELL YOU THE TRUTH. And there was no shortage of good fast roads in Texas.”

    Genre: time travel fiction



    CAUTION SPOILER:
    The tear jerker is mourning for two people in love who cannot be together.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Narrator Joyce Bean was very good for general narration and female voices. But she was bad with men. She made the hero unattractive and undesirable. She had weird ick voices for some men.

    A fun idea was Bo seeing Reena across the room and for him “the music stopped. She was his dream girl.” He tried to get to her but she left before he could. On two more future occasions he sees her but is unable to get to her before she leaves. I was curious wondering when and how will they ever meet?

    WHAT I DID NOT LIKE:
    Bad guy was too perfect and no hope for the good guys.
    The last third or fourth of the book was depressing. The serial killer/arsonist was getting away with many murders and fires. He was so smart and so perfect. He never made mistakes. Even though cops are watching and guarding places, the killer gets inside without being seen. That was not good for me. Reading about “perfect characters” (be they good or bad) is not interesting. I prefer stories where little things glum up the works – maybe an accidental witness seeing something. And there was “no hope” for the good guys. They just were not getting it – for years. Finally the bad guy calls Reena and gives her a clue.

    STUPIDITY:
    CAUTION SPOILERS:
    Bad guy sets a fire and places a false fire extinguisher nearby which is an explosive device. So why does the firefighter grab the fake extinguisher instead of using his own equipment?

    Reena and the cops know the killer is after people she knows. Reena tells everyone “do not be alone.” So what does Reena do? She goes somewhere alone – and the bad guy is there waiting for her.

    Reena knows the bad guy has been watching her and mentions her sex life on the phone. So why does she later have sex with someone in her back yard?
    END SPOILER.

    SENSITIVE READERS:
    There is one violent rape/murder scene - very unsettling.

    OTHER BOOKS:
    Nora Roberts is hit and miss with me. My favorites are: Carnal Innocence, Born in Fire, Angels Fall, The Witness, Northern Lights, and Sea Swept.

    Story

    But bad guy parts were too formulaic.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    The narrator Erika Leigh was good, but I question her interpretation of Willa. Willa is a tough rancher in charge of a large spread. The narrator used a soft southern-type female voice. It was a nice voice for a main character, but I wouldn’t have picked it for Willa. In one place the author wrote “Well?” Willa demanded. But the narrator said “Well” in a soft tone, not a demanding tone.

    Her male voices were well done – something many female narrators do not get right. Her other female voices and her general narration style were also very good.

    STORY:
    Three very different women must live together for a year. I enjoyed the girl bonding. I also enjoyed the three romantic relationships. Characters were nicely done.

    Two bad guys were added for conflict. That part of the story was typical and formulaic. The bad guys get away with lots of things until the end when the good guys win. I would have liked more internal conflict within the bad guys, see inside their heads, and not having them be so perfect in avoiding detection for so long. It’s like Nora Roberts has the same bad guy formula that she inserts into many of her novels.

    I was annoyed in one scene, but I’m probably overreacting. The killer wounded a guy (“victim”) and kidnapped a woman. The victim said “He took her” and then went unconscious. So we still didn’t know “who” “he” was. They had been looking for the killer for months, so the victim should have said the name of the killer. Yes, the author could justify this saying the victim was wounded and not thinking clearly. But I was still annoyed because it felt like a tool to prolong suspense. It wouldn’t have hurt to tell the name at that point. We learn the name soon after.

    There are two rape scenes. One is referred to. The other is detailed with murder.

    OTHER BOOKS:
    Nora Roberts is hit and miss with me. My favorites are: Carnal Innocence, Born in Fire, Angels Fall, The Witness, Northern Lights, and Sea Swept.

    but nice enough. Kept my interest.

    Three people meet and fall in love with three others, which makes six for the group trying to locate three antique silver statues. A bad guy and thugs are the main enemy. An elaborate plan is set in place. There is some fun girl bonding among the three women.

    I loved one scene where shy, nervous, hypochondriac Tia was planting bugs in the bad guy’s store. Bad guy confronts her. Tia is fumbling and nervous, but decides to use it and plays up her nervousness. Bad guy is impatient wanting to get Tia out of the store and takes Tia to the office. There Tia secretly plants another bug.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Bernadette Quigley is excellent. She used a pleasant Irish accent for four characters. She had a great accent for the female bad guy Anita – sneering, condescending, snake-like. She also had a very good general narration style. I was impressed enough to look up other books she narrated.

    I also wanted a little more time spent in Monk’s mind (the bad guy). One example: how did he find Avery when she was in the motel?

    I wanted to know what was in Ann’s letter.

    THE BUCHANAN/FBI SERIES:
    This is book 3 in the series. I did not like books 1 and 10 “Heartbreaker” and “Sweet Talk.” But I really liked book 2 “Mercy” and this one. I suggest reading Mercy before this. John Paul is introduced in Mercy. He’s the hero in this book.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Joyce Bean was good.

    Genre: romantic suspense
