    When a small crew of scoundrels, would-be heroes, deviants, and ruffians discover a map that they believe will lead them to a fabled sword buried in the barrow of a long-dead wizard, they think they've struck it rich. But their hopes are dashed when the map turns out to be cursed and then is destroyed in a magical ritual. The loss of the map leaves them dreaming of what might have been, until they rediscover the map in a most unusual and unexpected place.

    Story

    Let me preface this by saying that I love the new genre of fantasy called the "anti-hero" (joe abercrombie is one of my favorite authors) and when I read the blurb for this I thought it would a story similar to that.

    It is an it isn't. This story has more sex, more violence, and more treachery (if you can believe it!) that kept you guessing up until the end.

    If you like dark fantasy give it a try, but as my title indicates this story is definitely not for the faint of heart!

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    Story

    At first I wasn't sure how how would like this story since I knew from some of the reviews that the POV was not Pitt, but Agent Frank's (who let's be honest) is not a easy character to like.

    However, I loved the story that ended up being told from his POV brought and felt that it went a long way to explaining some things and really brought the story forward (which I didn't feel the last story did as well).

    I would definitely recommend!

    Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius". Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

    Story

    If you like zombie books give this one a shot (if you are tired of the genre, I would still recommend this one as the premise behind how the zombie's are created and behave is interesting).

    I thought that this had great character development (I felt more sorry for the zombies then the regular humans), but it was a little graphic in some spots which might be a bit much for some.

    Claire, the Devil's assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother's unpaid debt to the Demon King. She certainly didn't expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen's throne, a target for the Druid King's mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil's oldest hell spawn. In a last-ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil she sets out to solve Junior's murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

    Story

    Ok, I think I might be in the minority with this book. I struggled to finish listening to this because the main character just GOT ON MY NERVES. She was so whiny and seemed to accept the abuse that all the factions: Boss, Druids, Pagans, etc wanted to heap on her. Maybe this is me just preferring more strong characters that are a little more snarky and who attempt to fight back against the bad guys. Her character is probably more realistic (if you were in that situation), but for some reason I didn't sympathize with her like I have with other "underdog" characters.

    If you are into YA books you will probably like this as their is a lot of angt for boyfriend that she discusses (way too much) throughout the book that plays really no part in the storyline. If this is meant for an adult audience then I think the main character needs to grow up a little more (which, to be fair, she did appear to do in the last couple paragraphs of the book).

    That’s the flummoxed state of Edward Stanton, a 42-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome. His job, his therapist, and his best friends are all gone. Even his nightly ritual of watching Dragnet reruns has short-circuited. But a call from his friend Donna in Idaho, telling him that her son Kyle is in trouble, launches Edward from his rigidly scheduled existence in Billings, Montana, to the open road. He and Kyle, a sweet little boy turned sullen adolescent, debate football, music, and bodily functions (“Why do you pee so much?” Kyle asks).

    Ah..Edward. I was so glad to revisit Edward to see how much he had grown and changed (and not!) and how he was able to cope with his "shitburger" of a year!

    A 39-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, Edward Stanton lives alone on a rigid schedule in the Montana town where he grew up. His carefully constructed routine includes tracking his most common waking time (7:38 a.m.), refusing to start his therapy sessions even a minute before the appointed hour (10:00 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10:00 p.m.). But when a single mother and her nine-year-old son move in across the street, Edward’s timetable comes undone....

    I was looking for a recommendation for a book similar to the "Rosie Project" (i.e., an author who could deal with a difficult subject in a humorous, but still realistic manner).

    This book was very different, but equally as good for different reasons. Craig Lancaster does a good job dealing with the full range of issues that all of us have faced at some time or other while still making us laugh.

    I would highly recommend this..I don't think you would be disappointed.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    As always, Lisa Gardner, did not disappoint. I loves how she is able to tell a story from various character perspectives and although I thought I knew who the mastermind was I didn't figure it out until the investigators did (which to me makes for a more exciting book!)

    Definitely would recommend to anyone who enjoys her other novels.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    I love Larry Correia's books. I've read all his MHI books and his Grimnoir books as well. This book had the unfortunate feeling of being the middle book in a series even though it's book number 4. I liked the additional background that we got on the evil that Zee will have to eventually fight, but didn't feel like the storyline moved along that much.

    Don't get me wrong, I'll definitely read the next book in the series, but this was just not by favorite.

    if I had not figured out who did it 1/4 of the way into the book. I was really liked the main character though so I kept listening to see what would eventually happen to him, but I do typically like more difficulty in guessing "who done it"!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I had been looking at this book for a long time, but the synopsis didn't really grab my interest. It wasn't until someone compared it to "Lost" (which i loved) that I decided to give it a shot.

    I'm glad I did. It started off slow, but I like the buildup and the weirdness. It was a really good story and I ending up really loving the book.
