Frontierland
Feed (The Newsflesh Trilogy) - Mira Grant

 

Rolled 10 (double 5's).

My TBR seems to be void of Westerns at the moment, so I opted for a title starting with F.

 

Be careful what you wish for comes to mind while reading this book.

 

A cure for cancer and a not fully tested cure for the common cold combine to make a zombie virus.

 

The ending was emotionally intense, both good and bad.

Paradise Pier
The Queen's Adept - Rodolfo Martínez

 

Not sure why this one was marked Steampunk, but it is what it is.

I would have filed it as Fantasy.

 

A bit confusing, but it was translated from Spanish (I think) so I think he just needs a better translator.

 

Good vs evil, but which side is which is up for interpretation.

Brandan is both scary and to be pitied.

 

It would have been nice to have more details surrounding the Dark Forests.

I don't quite understand what the messengers and menialbodies are (or their purpose), but when I read fantasy I'm willing to throw belief down  dark well and just enjoy the story.

Kinda creepy though.

 

If you read Spanish I would recommend this one.

As far as I can tell none of the rest of the series has been translated so here is where I leave it.

Adventureland
Dinosaur Wars: Earthfall - Thomas P Hopp

 

Dinosaurs return to earth from a moon base.

Shocked that the little rat-like things have become the dominant species.

 

A fun book, if a bit juvenile.

 

I wanted to slap and shake the idiot wildlife ranger - for someone who spends his life working  with wildlife he knows absolutely nothing about animals.

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.
