Review: Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear

Review: Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear

February 20, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

This steampunk western adventure includes a bevy in a brothel, a lethal sewing machine, and love at first sight. Elizabeth Bear introduces her audience to KAREN MEMORY (actually spelled ‘Memery’), a working girl at the Hôtel Mon Cherie with a penchant for dime novels and a huge heart that gets her into trouble. The ladies of Madame Damnable’s are worth following all on their own, but Bear sweetens the pot with a series of mysterious murders in the vein of Jack the Ripper. The novel’s only misstep is in mild over-plotting, but there’s no denying it’s one hell of an adrenaline ride at the end.

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Hidden Masters of Marandur (The Pillars of Reality #2) by Jack Campbell

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Hidden Masters of Marandur (The Pillars of Reality #2) by Jack Campbell

February 19, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★★

I may be a little biased because Jack Campbell is my favorite living author, but I loved THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR. This book picks up about two weeks after THE DRAGONS OF DORCASTLE ended, and you’re thrown right into the action. The intense battle and action scenes are one of the places where Campbell’s writing really shines. There are a lot of urban and epic fantasy novels that make me cringe when I read their battles, but Campbell’s years of military experience help him write realistic battles.

Release Day Review:  The Diabolical Miss Hyde (Electric Empire #1) by Viola Carr

Release Day Review: The Diabolical Miss Hyde (Electric Empire #1) by Viola Carr

February 10, 2015 Review 3 ★★★★

THE DIABOLICAL MISS HYDE was an entertaining twist on the classic tale of THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. I love a good murder mystery and one where the protagonist in part doesn’t know if she is the killer makes for an especially juicy story. The story, like the kind upright Dr. Eliza Jekyll is split in narration between her and her more brash and violent alter ego Lizzie Hyde.
