The Devil in the Bottle - Carol Buchanan

 

Based on true accounts of the life of Joseph Alfred Slade.

I'm not sure how I managed to get a hold of book 3 but not the first 2, so some of it was a bit confusing.

 

The main character is a lawyer from NYC who moved west and became part of the vigilante group patrolling (near as I could figure) what is now southern Montana down to Northern Nevada during the Civil War. There were no official courts as yet, so they basically policed their own.

 

 

Worth the read if you are interested in the old west, but I would suggest starting with book 1.  :  )

Castle Perilous - John DeChancie

 

That was highly enjoyable, if a bit confusing at the beginning.

The feet on the stairwell made me laugh.

 

I don't know if  I'd want to visit the place though.

Unless I could be assured of they way back.

 

I wonder what happened to the guy who took the piece of demon from the thief.

Rolled 8, Chance, Mystery
Cold Slice - L.T. Fawkes

 

Light, but entertaining.

Some pizza delivery people lead exciting lives.

 

Considering I am not a fan of mysteries I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

Reading progress update: I've read 26%.
Lucifer's Hammer - Larry Niven,Jerry Pournelle

" A good strip of beef jerky is bone dry, and hard enough to kill you if you file the end to a point."

 

 

OMG, that made me laugh out loud.

I'm picturing survivors dueling it out with strips of dried beef.

I'm left hanging in the breeze!
The Gold Eater (The Gold Chronicles) - D. Girard Watson

 

There is no third book damnit.

I'm never going to know what happened.  :  (

 

Did David survive the weird mind splitting thing he did or not?

 

Does the Calliope make it back in time to warn the American govt?

Do the Spanish get the upper hand in the war against the Americans?

Does the Empress smack them both?

 

Do David and Lara get together?

Or is he stuck fending off the nutty rich girl and her daddy on his own.

 

THIS is why I rarely start a series unless I know it's finished.

Argh!  sigh

Stupid TBR challenge.
