I loved the "Wool" series, and was hoping this would live up to that series. However, it just didn't do for me what the "Wool" series did. It too, is an alternate look at a future world, this one with Colony setting up colonies to explore other planets. It's an interesting book, but just seemed a little slow going for me, and the characters never reached out and grabbed my interest. No problem with the narration though, as I feel he did an excellent job.
All and all, it just seemed an average read to me, easy to take the earbuds off, and catch up on other projects.
I had put off listening to this book for some reason, I guess thinking it would be one of those frustrating books where the heroin always makes dumb moves jumping to the wrong conclusion. Not the case, Lacey is an intelligent forensic dental expert with a haunted past that is stalking her once more. It has a romance with a bit of triangle to it, but only makes it more interesting. The main theme is the 'who done it and who keeps doing it', and why now. I thought it to be an interesting thriller that kept me guessing.
Luke Daniels sounds perfect for this character, a 21 year old druid (that's actually a couple of thousand years old). It's a fast paced magical tale with almost too many characters to keep track of. They all seem to want his help or our hero's head, or should I say magical sword. It's a fun read with a dog that makes the perfect sidekick providing comic relief. If you enjoy Dresden Files then give this series a try.
I've read all these books in order, and have to say this would be a good finale for the series. A good story of Wrath and Wrath's parents are told, and kinda wraps things up for the original cast of characters. Along with Wrath's story are other stories wound around this one. Xcor and Layla, Tres and Selena, Assail and Sol, all the males being in the criminal element. I just haven't gotten attached to these new characters like the Brotherhood, so that's why I said that this book is a good stopping place for me. All and all though, this one is not to be missed for BDB fans.
Katniss finds shes been betrayed into being part of the rebellion and must now come to grips with the fact that she is also the main hope of the oppressed people. Her life has changed, her relationships with Gale and Peeta have changed, and she doesn't know who to trust. This is an emotion filled finale, filled with battle strategy, action, and maybe a huge understanding of human nature, all through the eyes of Katniss.
Not to be missed by any age group.
PG-13 style fantasy, complete with the hard headed heroine, that frustrates the reader from start to finish.She's a shape shifter turned vamp, that finds herself with a bullseye on her back with most everyone that she meets. Kitta doesn't want to be a vampire and acts like a spoiled brat most of the time, leading Nathaniel on and making his life miserable by rejecting him and doing as she pleases. Leaves you in a cliffhanger, that doesn't look like it will be resolved since the book was released Aug 2011, and the final book isn't on the shelf yet.
This is a PI team not to be passed up. Lincoln and Joe are a great blend of humor and humanity. Joe the calm well spoken of the two, and Lincoln dives in to trouble without a second thought of putting his life on the line. It starts out as a murder/suicide, perhaps a kidnapping involved with clues unfolding and danger getting deeper throughout, with suspenseful action and surprises til the ending. The characters of Lincoln, Joe and Amy grow on you, making you glad this is only the first of the series.
Another great Reacher tale, this one back in the Army. He's on the trail of a couple of murders that shouldn't be linked but all the clues head in that direction. Everything points to a broad conspiracy within the ranks of an ever changing military. A highly suspenseful story true to style as only Lee Child and Dick Hill can tell.
I found this to be a very good suspense/thriller. Patrick, now a reporter was an abused child, that we become acquainted with throughout the book, since he found evidence of a long ago missing child in his dead mother's belongings. The whole book is trying to solve the mystery of why his mother would be in possession of the medallion worn by the missing child. Patrick puts himself in deeper and deeper danger as he unravels the puzzle.Clues unfold and Patrick's tormented upbringing comes to light, as a killer pursues him.
I would give this story an "ok" but it really wasn't up to Jack Daniels standards. The whole plot was really far fetched and just not that interesting to me. Abe saved the story though through comic relief. He and Roy made the book worth listening to.
Love the humor in these stories. The narration makes them work at times, and the banter between Jack and Herb is well worth the listen. I've listened to or read all the Jack Daniels mysteries and if you like them, you won't want to miss this collection. These give us a better understanding of the character Phin, as there are several of his stories included.
