Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

Audiobook Review: Salvage Trouble (Black Ocean #1) by J.S. Morin

July 19, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

As a life long lover of science fiction and fantasy I’ve always searched for a great story that could combine the two genres. I’ve read/attempted to read many, many books that had magic in space, but none of them have been worth mentioning until I stumbled across SALVAGE TROUBLE on Audible a couple of weeks ago, and since then the Black Ocean series has been the only thing I’ve listened to as I quickly devoured the seven books that are up on Audible right now.

5bat! Review: Marked in Flesh (The Others #4) by Anne Bishop

MARKED IN FLESH was not exactly what I expected, but it was everything I didn’t know I wanted. I cannot recommend this series enough, and I cannot over-emphasize how wonderful all the books are. This is definitely one where it is worth it to start at the beginning. As book four in The Others series, MARKED IN FLESH rewards readers of the series with storylines and little vignettes here and there that may not mean as much if you haven’t read earlier books.

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

March 14, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

I didn’t know I needed a fabulous Egyptian-inspired zombie killing novel in my life, but now that I have devoured THE REBURIALISTS, I will be recommending it to everyone at the top of my lungs. It’s equal parts clever and exciting, with a dash of horror and a fun love story.

The world is complicated enough without having to cut the tendons of your dead relatives and get their mouths sewn shut in case a Re-Animus decides to take it for a ride after you bury it. You’re better off cremating it, if you can afford it. Where zombies rising is common place, the BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) takes care of putting the dead back where they belong, and Brynner Carson is their hero.

Oh SPI Files, how do I love you? Let me count the ways! You’ve got action to keep me occupied, sexual tension for me to swoon about, snappy dialogue to keep me laughing out loud and a cast of characters I can’t help but love. THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION is no exception to the rule, and for me, is a perfect urban fantasy read.

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

November 16, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★★

THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS starts right where THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR left off, and the action, romance, and political intrigue of the previous books continues superbly in this one. My number one fear for THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS was that the plot would start to stall. I’ve seen this happen with a lot of books like this, but Jack Campbell clearly has the whole Pillars of Reality series thoroughly plotted out, because I never felt it stall.

Release Day Review: Sweep in Peace (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews

Release Day Review: Sweep in Peace (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews

I’m sorry if I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but I want to start this review off by once again complimenting the amazing artwork of Doris Mantair. And along with the fantastic cover art Ilona Andrews also commissioned another four pieces of art that are scattered throughout SWEEP IN PEACE. I really wish that more books did that. It’s easier to do now that so many people read ebooks, and it brings the story to life a little bit more. Though Ilona Andrews really doesn’t need any help bringing the story to life.
