Brutal tale about fascism
The Punisher (2016-) #219 - Guiu Villanova,Matt Rosenberg,Clayton Crain

This feels timely, and also like old-school Punisher.   When baby Nick Fury needs someone to clean up  a mess he made in Chernaya, he turns to Frank Castle, luring him with the promise of killing soldiers who take - and follow - orders to murder children.   In fact, Fury gives him the opportunity to go after the man giving the orders. 

 

And the War Machine armor.    

 

It gets as brutal as you'd expect.   Hyperviolent, and yet the people doing these things are such bastards that when Frank declares that he wants to let them burn, I couldn't help but cheer him on.   

 

And when they kill an old farmer that Frank had been protecting?    Well, his plan is to go after their 'glorious leader' and kill him - and good for him!  I was really worried about the new team, and now?   Now I'm just beyond thrilled.

So, this new team...
The Punisher (2016-) #218 - Guiu Vilanova,Matthew T. Rosenberg,Clayton Crain

Me before reading: I wonder if the stories lines will be just as messed up and fun in their own way. 

 

Me after reading:  Punisher.  In a War Machine suit.   The best thing to happen to me today, by far.   

 

Stopping writing, starting reading the next one.   Right now.   Because so much yes.

Lovely!
The Punisher (2016-) #17 - Matt Horak,Becky Cloonan,Declan Shalvey

Cloonan's last issue has her go out with a bang: Punisher, against an EMC fueled Face.   (EMC is a drug that gives people power; Face was in a coma after overdosing on EMC at the beginning of last issue.)

 

It's gross, and hyper violent, and everything I could have hoped from Cloonan's last issue. Here's to hoping I enjoy the new team just as much!

cute, really cute!
High Test (Dreamspun Desires Book 47) - Elizabeth Noble
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book direct for the author, that I write a review was not required. Hayden meets Neal at a university fund raiser and the chemistry burns hot and bright. But then Neal turns up at the coffee shop that Hayden works at, and assumes Hayden is an owner of said coffee shop. Every time Hayden tries to tell Neal otherwise, something gets in the way. Then the coffee shop goes bust, and a vindictive woman threatens to tell Hayden's secrets. So Hayden runs. But Neal has other ideas! Cute! Real cute. I've read Ms Noble's Vampire Guard series, and loved those. So when asked to read this one, naturally, I said yes! Its a great read, flows well, and while I saw that maybe Neal already knew that Hayden wasn't who he thought he was, it was kinda fun watching it all unravel. Loved that Neal, while extremely wealthy, was too obnoxious with it. All too often these billionaire characters are not nice people! But I loved Neal, his family though? Not so much. Hayden's family?? Loved them! Not overly explicit, but the heat level does creep up as the relationship between Neal and Hayden moves along. Nicely written. BUT!!! Only Hayden has a say. (and that's all I am gonna say about that!

Review – The Passenger by Lisa Lutz @lisalutz
The Passenger - Lisa Lutz

I read Passenger by Lisa Lutz some time ago and it’s one of those reviews that just got lost in the shuffle. So…let’s get started.

 

The Passenger

 

Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK Amazon CA

MY REVIEW

 

The mystery has begun and Lisa Lutz kept me guessing until the end.

 

Tanya’s husband falls down the stairs and dies. When she finds him, she runs. Why?

On the run, she hooks up with Blue…WHOA. She is a badass and could definitely teach Tanya some lessons. Wonder what her story is?

 

Trouble comes looking for them and bodies fall.

 

How would you go about creating a new identity….a new life?

 

Their life keeps getting more complicated and I wonder what will become of them. My curiosity and Lisa’s pacing and suspense keep me tearing through the pages, wanting answers, but…

 

Lisa Lutz is not new to me. I have checked her books out from the library and enjoyed them. Passenger is full of a lot of words and some took me on long convoluted paths. Were they there to just lengthen the story or were they essential to the character development and suspense? I don’t expect fiction to be ‘real’ but, to me, a suspense novel like Passenger doesn’t need events just to have them. Know what I mean? It just slows the pacing and lessens the suspense and I like the white knuckled, breath holding, must know what happens next feeling.

 

I don’t quite get what’s going on and don’t find out why she is running until the last 20%. I do love that I didn’t know the story and had to read to the end to find the answers I was seeking.

 

Blue kept popping in and out and I loved it. There are no heroes here. All in all, I enjoyed the story. 

 

I read an ARC, so I hope Lisa trims the fat and makes this the top notch book I feel it can be.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Passenger by Lisa Lutz.
