TechnoThriller – The Masters’ Key by Helen Hanson @HelenHanson
The Masters' Key: A Masters CIA Thriller - Book 2 (The Masters CIA Thriller Series) (Volume 2) - Helen Hanson

The Masters’ Key by Helen Hanson is FANTASTIC!

This is one of those reviews that, if I was on my toes, would have been written back in May of 2015, and is part of my Blogging Shame Challenge.

Helen Hanson is firmly on my grab-every-time-I-see-one-of-her-books list.

MY REVIEW

I love conspiracies and political thrillers. The Master’s Key by Helen Hanson is filled with over the top suspense.

 

Technological terrorism that is terrifying to even think about.

 

We have betrayal, computer attacks, revenge, malice, and so much more.

 

The characters run the gamut. From good to bad:  the evil bitch that’s pissed she didn’t get her way, the greedy partner, the CEO whose demands cross the line, the sick woman who’s heart is pure and the man who loves her.

 

The Masters’ Key is very frightening…filled with the technological implications and disasters that can occur when a psycho has you in his sights. I love trying to figure out characters motivations, but this psychos thoughts are so far past my understanding. Would anyone be safe, anywhere, if he wanted to get to you? I don’t think so.

 

I would like to reach into my Kindle, grab him around the throat, and…

 

Action packed. The tension level is off the charts, as I see the bad guys in every shadow, around every corner, and behind every door.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Masters’ Key by Helen Hanson.

Review: A Darker Shade of Magic (2015) by V.E. Schwab
A Darker Shade of Magic: A Novel - V. E. Schwab

I have a fascination on the many worlds concepts both in theoretical physics and in fictional worlds. With the goal of reading recently released paperback books (I just usually buy used books released years ago), I picked up A Darker Shade of Magic. I wanted to know how the concept of parallel worlds used in a fantasy setting. Previously, I just read fantasy stories that only have two worlds, the mundane and the magical. Now I get to read four worlds in one.

A Darker Shade of Magic is the first of a trilogy written by V.E. Schwab. This is my first book from her. This book was first released in 2015.

This is the story of Kell, one of the few remaining Antari. They are magicians that can traverse in between worlds. There are four worlds with one thing in common, all have a city that is named London. These Londons are designated by color, Gray, Red, White, and Black. Kell is from Red London. Here he grew up with the royal family but not a part of it. He consider Prince Rhy his brother. Officially, Kell is the ambassador to the White and Gray London. (Traveling to the Black London is forbidden.) Unofficially, he is a smuggler for items only found in other Londons. One day he came across with a dangerous artifact that in the wrong hand can be used to destroy the walls separating the London. He cross paths with Lila the pickpocket from Gray London and together they set things the right way.

Kell is the best written character. Other characters, including the antagonists, not as much. I liked how the differences of the Londons were written. I, as the reader, can easy tell which London is which. The plot lines are tied in the end. I can end reading now or pick up the next books.

I recommend this book for those who like to mix and match their genres. I haven’t read the blurbs of the next books but I will pick them up but not anytime soon.

 

Next in Shades of Magic series:

Gross
Doctor Strange (2015-) #23 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon

More Secret Empire.   So gross.   Especially the whole Wilson Fisk thing.  I'm over this all right now.   

 

I wish I could give this whole event and all the tie-ins negative stars.

Lovely extended AU
Spider-Gwen (2015-) #22 - Jason Latour,Robbi Rodriguez

Nice takes on Wolverine and Shadowcat and their history together, and how that influences what everyone does here. 

 

Also, love seeing The Lizard, how he's connected to Spider-Gwen and the decision that's made with Venom here - and I can't wait to see how that evolves. 

 

Especially since there's another tragedy with Captain Stacey about to unfold, although hopefully not a fatal tragedy.

Yay!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #21 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

If Moon Girl were alone, if she were slightly naughty - but believed herself to be evil - she'd be Devil Girl with her monstrous Moon Dinosaur.   And seeing Moon Girl and Devil Girl smack talk each other?   Hilarious. 

 

I love some of the messages here - about community, about being true to yourself - although they aren't at all heavy handed so you can just sit back and enjoy the story.   Warm, funny, this continues the Moon Girl series as a kid-friendly series that adults can enjoy, too.   

 

Sorry it's not a longer review.  I'm burnt out from writing so many lately.
