Review of High Moon
High Moon Vol. 1 - David Gallaher,Steve Ellis

This was a strange one and it also had me a bit confused at times but then I think it was suppose to as there was kind of a reveal close to the end but then it kept going and also there was a lot of men called Macgregor and that was confusing me...lol. I actually had to go back to the beginning and check some things out.

 

A town seems to be infested with some creatures and a mysterious man comes there looking for someone and lots of things happen and I can't say cause..um spoiler. :)

 

Overall, it was not a bad graphic novel but at the same time I felt I entered into the middle of something though it says vol. 1. Had some really cool graphic though! :)

My Review of Wytchfire
Wytchfire (The Dragonkin Trilogy Book 1) - Michael Meyerhofer

I received the The Dragonkin Trilogy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, therefore, I'm going to start my review a bit different than usual. The reason for this change in the way I'm reviewing is because Booklikes counts trilogies, series, and anthologies as one book, and I'm greedy so I broke this one down to get credit for all three books, though I'll be reviewing the entire trilogy.

Wytchfire by Michael Meyerhofer is the first book in The Dragonkin Trilogy. Rowen Locke has always dreamed of becoming a Knight of the Crane, but with war looming Rowen has to decide where he stands.

First I have to say WOW!!! I was thoroughly blown away by this story. It is your typical sword and sorcery tale, but yet it isn't. Yes, it has the good vs. evil. Yes, it has magic. And yes, it has battles, and lots of them. But, what isn't typical is the fact that you won't find your typical races. You won't find dwarfs, elves, orcs, and the like. This tale has a host of very different races. It was very refreshing to meet these new races and still have the feel of a sword and sorcery tale. 

This story is very well written with vivid descriptions, and amazing world building. The characters are flawed, which makes them stand out from the pages and become flesh and bone. The dialogue is entertaining with a few laughs here and there. 

My only problem with this trilogy is that I feel as though some of the issues surrounding certain characters weren't fully resolved at the end. I'm hoping that the author is going to continue this story with focusing on those particular characters with spin-offs. If not for this fact, I would have given this trilogy five stars. Though I am giving each book their own star, I would rate the entire trilogy 4.5.

I highly recommend this trilogy because it is well written with a host of new races, and lots of excitement.

I s'pose a sparkly clean pool is worth a little blood sacrifice. I wonder if that will work for the grout in my shower tile?

Review: DC Bombshells, Volume 1: Enlisted by Marguerite Bennett and Marguerite Sauvage
DC Comics: Bombshells Vol. 1 - Marguerite Bennett

 

This series is an alternate universe in which the Nazis use or try to use supernatural beings as weapons and heroines from the DC universe stop them. Supergirl keeps her alien identity but is aided by her adopted sister Stargirl in keeping Mother Russia safe from the Nazis and corrupted Soviet military members. Wonder Woman enters the fray via Steve Trevor's plane going down on paradise. Batwoman is in charge of Kane Industries by day, a vigilante at night, and baseball player on the weekends. They kept her lesbian identity, which makes it fun when she meets up with Selene/Catwoman in Berlin - they had such banter when not fighting Nazis. Mera/Aquawoman team up with WW and Steve but the British Navy is her true place. I loved the artwork for the most part (WW was drawn a little manly in the face and was a little stiff in dialogue until she left her home).

 

All in all, a fun time reading this.

A bit of creepy, a bit of romance, a lot of action
The Bends: A Kane Montgomery Novel (Volume 1) - Bart Hopkins

I wasn't quite sure what to make of this one at first, but the author certainly has a talent for drawing the reader in to his world. The story is fast-paced and has a supernatural element that is a little bit Steven King - ish, and along with that, we get some romance and plenty of action and suspense. The characters are interesting and the dialogue is witty and did an excellent job of filling the spaces between the intense action. Our main character, Kane, is a likable drifter who arrives in town and meets a love interest just in time to get caught up in a mystery. I won't give spoilers, but I will say that the ending threw me at first, but the more I thought about it and Kane's personality, I've realized that the books end was exactly as it should be.
