Saga, Volumes 3 & 4 by Brian Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 3 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples
Saga Volume 4 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples


These volumes are simply fabulous! They're fun, they're full of surprises, they're heartbreaking and they're timely. They may be taking place on different planets with different races of people, (and robots!) but the issues dealt with are all too real right here and right now on earth. 


Lastly, there's a creature called a Lying Cat. He basically goes around with you and tells you when anyone around you is lying. How helpful is that? VERY! I want one. 




I was able to request these copies from my local library. LIBRARIES RULE!

Just starting ...
Too Like the Lightning - Ada Palmer

After a really long hiatus, publisher TOR (Macmillan publishing group) just reinstated their monthly free ebook club (join by adding your email, no charge, will all be Science Fiction or Fantasy genre ebooks).


There's a booklikes bookclub at http://booklikes.com/book-clubs/88/tor-monthly-free-ebook-science-fiction-and-fantasy if anyone cares to join in he read.  Club hasn't seen much activity because almost as soon as booklikes club started TOR tabled the program for a while.


Not actually sure about the book.  New to me author.  Book description makes it sound like could be a juicy, immersive read for me withh lots of politics, worldbuilding and religion -- or else too bogged down in politics and religion if done wrong.

High Voltage - Karen Marie Moning

I am in my happy place. Dani, the woman has gone through some massive trials and made some huge transitions. In the beginning it was confusing, to see a young girl suffer so and be seen as more in the future. I admit I did not like young Dani, she was a thorn to me in the story. Oh there was some serious backlash towards Ms. Moning, speculations based on her age, before the tale was finished being told. If only they'd waited they would have seen this beautiful, wonderfully magical woman finally grab ahold of her red threads and become what she was ment to be. The truth of why this obsession was there made me jump and scream "YEH!" I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, you don't need to know more.
Another great book from Ms. Moning. She continues to be one of my top 5 authors, one I re-read from often. I can not wait for her next work.. Bravo Ms. Moning, you rock !

Have You Ever Been…Jinxed by Donna Augustine @donnaugustine
Jinxed (Karma) (Volume 2) - Donna Augustine


The covers for the Karma series are FABULOUS.

Would you choose a book for that reason alone?


Amazon  /  Audible  /  Goodreads




First thing, I would recommend reading the Karma series in order. I started Jinxed some time after reading Karma and it took me a while to refresh my memory of where I left off. After that, though, the book took off and Karma is leading me down a twisted and dangerous path.


Karma has an attitude and it gets her in a lot of trouble. She is stubborn, mule headed, independent and determined to do it herself. She is snarky with a big chip on her shoulder. God help those who cross her when it is time to pay the piper.


The characters straddle the world between the living and the dead. That doesn’t mean they don’t like hot sex and good food. Can you kill a dead person? Do you believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy? How about Murphy, Lady Luck, Fate? Kitty has her black cats, except for one, Smoke, who is gray now that he’s retired. Jockey has his Night Mares, which Karma will be one of the few to meet, other than us, the readers. Mother Nature, you really don’t want to piss her off.


Paddy plays an important, but somewhat, cameo role. He thinks Karma could be the one to save them and time is running out for him.


The Guardians of the doors, that allow for transport between the worlds, don’t have many friends, but Karma is one of them. She found their sweet spot and it will pay off in her times of need.


I love how everyone runs from Cupid when they see him coming. LOL Don’t want him messing with your love life…or do you?


Everything she went through as a transfer, all the confusion, Karma felt they needed a manual to make it easier for everyone. After all, humans have job description, don’t they?


Seeing Jinxed is the second book in the series, I don’t want to tell you too much, but I laughed, cringed, and raced my way through it.


Do you believe? Is there more to life and death than meets the eye? Do you want there to be more? Which role would you want to play in the world of transfers? There will be a job available, because they do retire.


The Karma series has captured me and transferred me to a place where I can have one foot in the our world and one foot in theirs.


I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Jinxed by Donna Augustine.

Climax (Double Alchemy #2) by Susan Mac Nicol
Climax (Double Alchemy #2) - Susan Mac Nicol
Climax is the second part of the Double Alchemy duology, and as such I would recommend reading them in order. We rejoin Quinn and Cade as they continue their search for Jeremy. Through the search, we find new characters to find out about, including Misty and Valensia. The first half of this book is mainly about that as Quinn continues to do his best for his Warlocks as Grand Master. Cade is by his side throughout, although I'm not sure I would be. I understand Quinn has his secrets, but it would drive me insane! The second part of the book is more about the various schemes and events that Quinn is organising, trying to do what is best, even when opposed by members of his own council.
Whilst I was totally engrossed with this story, there were parts where I wanted more - Misty, for example. There's a whole story there just waiting to be told, but we didn't get any of it but the bare bones. Also, Cade. I want more!!! Seriously, my kindle nearly went for a burton when I realised I had reached the end of the book, and there was simply no more. Yep, this is one of those books - where you have no idea about where the ending is until you trip over it!
With the same high quality of writing as in the first book, this fits seamlessly and snugly with the first book. I read these back to back and am thankful for that. With an amazing cast of characters, this is one story I am going to miss, and will be keeping to re-read in the future. Absolutely recommended by me.
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
