So I said this got better
Aphrodite V #2 - Bryan Edward Hill,Jeff Spokes

And boy, does it!   Between figuring out who Aphrodite V is, or trying to, and whose trying to kill off her new friend, things get better.   It allows us to explore who Aphrodite V is and to figure out where she fits in this world, especially with the distrust Hui-Men shows for Aphrodite.   Is Hui-Men correct?    Her boss shows much more trust in Aphrodite, but he could just be putting himself in danger since he has no basic knowledge of who she is.    Yes, she saved him once; does that mean she will again later on?


Things start to make sense, the plot starts really moving along, and this just gets better.

This series grew on me
Aphrodite V #1 - Bryan Edward Hill,Jeff Spokes

And I can say that, having read the whole thing.  But it started out with what I felt was a whimper, and I wasn't really sure I'd continue immediately.  In fact, I remember reading little of something else and then coming back to this.   I'm glad I did: the setup is a little confusing here, but the character arc is worth wading through a less impressive first issue. 


Not sure I felt it was fully resolved at the end, and the ending doesn't take away my feelings about this: I'd forgotten about who Aphrodite V was, and I wasn't sure when exactly this was taking place.  I wasn't sure what her meeting and saving a super rich dude had to do with her greater storyline, from what little I did remember and from what I knew about Aphrodite IX.   


I wasn't sure I was into the billionaire against billionaire intrigue that this promised to follow through on, but it was worthwhile.   I especially like how they dealt with the rest of the world not knowing who, or what, Aphrodite V was.

Bridging between two series
Aphrodite IX/Cyber Force #1 - Stjepan Sejic,Matt Hawkins

It was okay, but not my favorite, certainly not even my favorite Image comic set in this particular world of theirs.   Still, it was a decent read, although I was slightly confused because I hadn't really been keeping up, or probably even reading this in order.  


I wish there had been a little more to settle the reading in, but the art was spectacular, and I wasn't so lost I couldn't follow along at all.

good book and characters
Aphrodite's Tears - Hannah Fielding

Aphrodite’s tears   hannah fielding 4

Oriel is an English  archaeologist and goes to Greece to work. Oriel’s special interest is Greek history and she specializes in underwater archaeology. She jumps at the chance to work on an ancient roman Galley shipwreck as it’s her dream job and opportunity of a lifetime.  She had a one night stand along time ago and Damien was the man who when she woke up he was gone and she didn’t even know his name and that hurt Oriel. Six years later Damian saw her picture on the application for the diving job and knew he had to hire her. She os the best qualified for the job. Oriel is offered the  diving expedition as senior archaeologist but isn’t as excited when she sees who is the head of the expedition. He still continues to affect her like he did that one fantastic night long ago that she never forgot . but neither had Damian. Damien owns and rules his island Helios. . He is also an archaeologist and is heading this project and therefore Oriel’s boss. Oriel makes it clear they were only to have a professional relationship. Damian is going to try to change Orioles mind.   Damien narrates Greek myths and legends. Damian has had a lot of grief and mystery in his life like his brothers death in suspicious circumstances. He also has a beautiful but disabled unhinged cousin Helena who is in a wheelchair and who wants Damian with no one.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was there with Damian and Oriel. I really liked how the author added at the end of the book what is factual and based on facts and what was not. I feel this was well written but I did think this could have been a little shorter. I didn’t want to put this down. I really enjoyed the mystery, and  intrigue. Damian and Oriel did have hot chemistry. But there was some repetitive things on this book. I loved how Oriel stood up for herself. I really liked the plot. There are: ancient festivals, hot chemistry, a long ago one night stand, mystery, intrigue, a dead brother, a dead wife, a handicapped jealous cousin, a sunken ship, treasure, smuggling , even a volcano, sexual tension, and so much more in this book. I loved the characters and the twists and turns of this book and I recommend it.
