Review: The Burning Sea

Review: The Burning Sea

So many moments in this book were uncomfortable. Not a bad uncomfortable. The kind of uncomfortable where you just know things are going to go so far sideways.

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

This is written like it’s supposed to be plot-driven, but you can guess what will happen. The twists come from acts, that seem out of character. These moments pull you out of the story. This is probably an unpopular opinion since most reviews I heard about this book were great. I was excited to read the book finally but then had these moments pull me out of the book. This is one series I won’t be continuing.

Review: Winter’s Fury

Review: Winter’s Fury

Almost right from page 1, I was hooked. The writing in this, did something I had not experienced in a long time. I picked it up and did not want to stop. I had a hard time finding “good places” to stop for the night, or before going to start my work day, and all too often, had to put it down desperate to know what was about to happen. I became slightly more productive at work because I was so focused on getting what I needed to done, because I wanted to get back to the story as quickly as possible.

Faithless in Death by J D Robb

Faithless in Death by J D Robb

This is book 52 in the In Death series by J D Robb aka Nora Roberts. You really must be careful when listening if you are multi-tasking. The case seems to move quickly and if you wish to follow each lead, you’ll need to pay attention. This is full of the quick wit we expect of Dallas and Peabody as they work their way through a complicated case.

Crush the King by Jennifer Estep

Crush the King by Jennifer Estep

Queen Evie has been playing the long game with the King’s sister, a sister who he doesn’t acknowledge and isn’t even really considered a royal because she is a bastard. The conclusion to this long game, is one I saw as a possibility and I think Evie even mentions it a few times in the books, but the way it played out was, mwah, fantisimo!

This list is not all inclusive, but a few of the books I really enjoyed and wanted to mention again. There is one series on here I’m wondering if maybe I did hear about and just wasn’t ready for it at the time, or maybe I was living in a hole or something at the time of it’s hype. Keep reading to see what series I’m talking about.
