    In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission--one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

    Story

    I think there are a lot of interesting ideas and concepts. I enjoy this series, but it is not one that I wait all year for the next one like the destroyermen and lost fleet series'.
    Also I find the commander's girlfriend very annoying. Obviously the author identifies with his hero so he gave him a beautiful 23 year old bimbo with a great body and limited brains, that loves sex, for his companion.
    I could really do without that character.
    Some of the other characters are really great characters. I love Jack and the general. Most of the others just are placeholders for the story with no depth.
    The story is really the star of the books.with many twists and surprises. The technology is interesting and The books keep my interest, but I don't think I will re read the series when the next one comes out as I do with the In Death series or the destroyermen books.

    Good, enjoyable, worth the credit but forgettable afterwards. not 5 stars

Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.

    Story

    But a compelling story. I cant tell you why I kept reading, it was gross and revolting but facinating. Read at your own risk! A Horror story with Giant radioactive bedbugs, Jihadists, prostitutes, and a vile hotel owner with a live website from cameras that show what goes on in the hotel.

    Only one likable character. Discusting.

    Kenneth Chinran commanded the elite unit assigned to take out an entire planet in a terrible war. Millions died; billions more perished in the aftermath. One doesn't send a sociopath on such a mission. A sociopath might not stop. Chinran did stop, but in the process nearly lost his sanity and his soul. But one of Chinran's men was a sociopath going in. Now he's a trained sociopath with the knowledge and firepower to take out entire tactical teams, evaporate through security cordons and change identity at will.

    Story

    I loved the beginning of this book and wish it had stayed with those characters. The story is sci-fi but that is peripheral because with this story, because it wasn't nessesary for the story to be in space. Two opratives are chasing an assasin,that one of them knows but they never see and they keep missig him and I got bored and quit in the middle of the book. Maybe it gets better. It might. I had better books to read.

    Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.

    Story

    The narator was ok, the story was ok. I won't bother to get the rest of the series. Too many holes in the narative, and te characters don't resonate with me. I am a big fan of sci fi books with battles. just not this one.
    Three stars is my code for not sorry I read it but won't read it again or look for more books by the author.

    This classic haunted house book stands the test of time. the characters are engaging and the house is sinister. I have to admit I would love to visit it. The housekeeper is suitablely deadpan and strange. " there is no one to come if you call in the night after dark.''
    Visit Hill House and get the shivers again. "Whatever walks there walks alone!"

    This book is set later in time then most of Zane Grey's books. There are automobiles.
    My biggest probem with tihis book is the main female characters, both of whom are fooled by men and don't learn from thier mistakes at all. I wish women weren't really that gulable but I know we are often blinded by our own emotional needs ansee what we want to see in men to our eternal sorrow, but one character here takes being a fool to a level of high art.
    I don't recommend wasting a credit on this one.

    My personal rating system is 3 stars if I like the book but have no need to ever read it again, 4 stars for good and re-readable, 5 stars for favorite stories with great narators.
    I enjoyed this book and look forward to the movie but I will never want to read it again.
    It was fun to read about the food and the journey of a talented chef, in a strange country.
    It is a heartwarming book and I recommend it , though it is not my usual cup of tea.

    After war veteran Kennedy O’Brien returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, she lost her faith in all things male. So she started Fool Me Once Investigations to stick it to the man — because there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned. Her latest job is a wild dog-chase to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned Chihuahua thief, but thanks to her meddling family, Kennedy will have to put up with a partner. And it’s about the last man she’d ever pick: Her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

    If you like plenty of Raunchy sex, stupid repetitive jokes and constant bad language in normal conversation this is for you. It is NOT for me. The reader is annoying so that did not help. Skip this one. I couldn't finish it.

    Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown's illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act. Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who's more comfortable with guns than ghosts. Unfortunately for him, he's the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida's supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her.

    Story

    OK, Beautiful girl who doesn't think she's beautiful, though almost every man she meets hits on her, meets gorgeous man with scar who thinks he's ugly. Of course it's lust at first site. She's a medium and he's a bootegger cursed into seeing ghosts fom his past. That is the interesting part of the story. If you've read romances before, you know the romance part of the story. No suprises there. The writing is good, and the story is entertaining.
    The sex parts weren't as bad as many I've read. Though I enjoy romance, I don't really like much sex in books, and please skip the thrust by thrust details! Leave it to the imagination. Not too bad, but not one I will read again.

He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.
