    Three time-traveling historians are visiting World War II England: Michael Davies, intent on observing heroism during the Miracle of Dunkirk; Merope Ward, studying children evacuated from London; and Polly Churchill, posing as a shopgirl in the middle of the Blitz. But when the three become unexpectedly trapped in 1940, they struggle not only to find their way home but to survive as Hitler's bombers attempt to pummel London into submission.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Rescued by the second half"
    "Sci-fi?"
    Overall

    This is an excellent historical novel, but not what I would call sci-fi. The time travel aspect is kind of an afterthought added to move the characters around.

    In celebration of the week-long, once-in-a-decade rite of Apert, the fras and suurs prepare to venture outside the concent's gates - opening them wide at the same time to welcome the curious "extras" in. During his first Apert as a fra, Erasmus eagerly anticipates reconnecting with the landmarks and family he hasn't seen since he was "collected". But before the week is out, both the existence he abandoned and the one he embraced will stand poised on the perilous brink of cataclysmic change.

    Richard says: "Tour de force"

    Love the author's other books, but his one bored me senseless. I could barely get through it.

    When two alien cats are stranded in a U.N. communication station in Earth orbit, they're captured by saboteurs who work for an industrial magnate. But the telepathic cats easily escape their captors once they've landed on Earth. Now they must help derail the industrial mogul's plan to bring down the entire space industry.

    I think a lot of mind altering substances went into the creation of this book

She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    The moon has suddenly acquired its own satellite: a two-mile-across starship that represents a hitherto unsuspected Galactic Commonwealth. The F'thk, a vaguely centaur-like member species for whom Earth's ecology is hospitable, have been sent to evaluate humanity for prospective membership. The F'thk are overtly friendly but very private - "Information is a trade good." As Earth's scientists struggle to understand their secretive appraisers, odd inconsistencies emerge. As troubling as those anomalies is the reemergence of a bit of insanity humanity thought it had outgrown: cold war and nuclear saber-rattling.

    Story
    What did you like best about Moonstruck? What did you like least?

    The characters and the aliens are imaginative. The plot jumps around way too much and it is hard to keep track of who is who.


    What could Edward M. Lerner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it much shorter- it really drags in spots.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator is ok, but the volume goes up and down and I thought it was from my iPhone.


    Could you see Moonstruck being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley.But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Fun"
    Overall

    Not quite as good as the other A. Lee Martinez books, but the narrator is excellent.

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Tony says: "Very Disappointed"
    "Not bad"
    Overall

    The story is good and a new concept, but the narration bothered me. She is trying too hard, and it comes off as strange and whispery instead of sexy. The romance is pretty ordinary, I wound rather have had more of the elementals.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    AMC says: "Promising New Series"
    "Just bad"
    Overall

    How many cliches can you fit in one book? Add some laughable sex scenes and this is the result. The narrator did the best he could with what he had to work with.
