    The prison ship Perdition, a floating city where the Conglomerate's most dangerous criminals are confined for life, orbits endlessly around a barren asteroid. Life inside is even more bleak. Hailed as the Dread Queen, inmate Dresdemona "Dred" Devos controls one of Perdition's six territories, bordered on both sides by would-be kings eager to challenge her claim. Keeping them at bay requires constant vigilance, as well as a steady influx of new recruits to replace the fallen.

    What did you love best about Perdition?

    This book has me in withdrawal for more. I NEED book 2 to be written! OMGosh, the story is all-consuming and envelopes the reader in the fast-paced plot. It's not overcomplicated and doesn't try to do too much like some other authors tend to do in this genre. Just a perfect integration of plot, character and future-based fantasy, with a nod to esoteric literary analysis of conflict: man v man, man v nature, man v himself, etc...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    duh... Dred! Her character is endearing yet I am scared of her, loving yet being loved by her is dangerous, strong yet within believable limits of human frailty, mysteriously guarded yet I feel like I know her well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself experiencing several "OMG, I've got to reread that!" moments throughout the book.

    Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.

    Story

    Didn't need the nasty sex language, especially IN church! Kind of offensive and perpetuates negative stereotypes about African Americans. None of the African Americans in my family or friends would EVER act like these characters did.
