I would have been happier without the romantic plot tumor
Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy #4) - Ilona Andrews

For all that three years passed, 21 years old Catalina feels so much younger than Nevada at 23 did on that first volume. Mostly because she got so derailed by Sagredo.

 

And I know; hormones mess with you, and so does passion, and 21 is very young and perfect time to be stupid about those things (and really, crushes and love makes idiots out of everyone at any age). But: Sagredo.

 

I have ZERO likes for those dangerous, maybe-bad, likely-bad-for-you, Cassanova-wanna-bes with tortured backgrounds that enjoy teasing and baiting, then hide under all the angst to not commit, and leave the damsel paying while telling themselves they are being all selfless for not dragging her all the way in. That's... so much disrespect for the girl, her feelings, and her capabilities.

 

I did like most of the periphery though: the one-scene-wonder Venenata coming back (though her brother could get stuffed... and I just realized almost every male made me rage at some point, and the exceptions would be Heart and Sgt Teddy, like, wow); the family interactions; what happened in the interim with the fallout of previous volumes; that chat and decision with Victoria (terrible, stupid, and still very interesting) and... that's it.

 

Yeah, doing a recap, I realize that although it was a fast fun ride, it was not awesome like I'd expected.

Review

Since volume 1 was less than what I was hoping for, I tempered my expectations going into this volume; yet this volume was a bit better than the first, but not by much. The artwork is still amateurish, and the storytelling is focused on telling the back story on two characters prior to their incarceration. Again, the plot didn't start moving along until the very end and then ended abruptly. I still don't like the "advertisements" stuffed in between the story telling. At the end of this volume, although I did enjoy meeting the President, I realized that the authors and illustrators are just trying to hard to be edgy and "woke" without a plan or outline for the series and the work suffers greatly. I won't be continuing with the series.

Date Read: May 13, 2019

Read for BoB Cycle 25

 

Blurb:

Eisner Award-nominated writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Captain Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of Bitch Planet, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation.

In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman's failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?

Collects BITCH PLANET #1-5

Review:

I had high hopes for this series. It was a disappointment. The artwork is okay, a bit sloppy in some places. The nudity isn't for shock value or to tilitate, but is very natural and there is a wide variety of different cis women bodies. But the story telling is hard to follow at times and there is a lot of setting up the world that feels like an info-dump. By the time the story gets going with the plot, the volume is over. The insert of some weird "back of a magazine" advertisement just tends to gummed up the story telling and should have been organized in the back of the volume.

Morph - Curse of the Bitch
MORPH: Curse of the Bitch - Raquel Zepeda Fitzgerald

When abrasive men start dropping like flies around a certain young woman, Detective Marilyn Jennings began her investigation.  Having grown up in the middle of Hollywood, solving this case would be a feather in her hat.

 

The ghosts of Hollywood were about to get a rude awakening.

 

You can get this ebook on Barnes & Noble, iTunes, or Selify (kindle edition)

Fun with sociopaths
Lady Susan - Jane Austen

It's short, it's unpolished, and the MC is an absolutely conniving bitch. And, oh, my god, it was magnificent.

 

Susan is horrid and also compelling. A fun (yet sadly not that far from reality) caricature of your garden variety sociopathic creature.

 

From the first letter I was laughing at the convolutions and machinations, and all the suspected make-up to what could be inferred of recent past happenings.

 

Facts are such horrid things!

 

And facts do come out, because it is a happy little story all things said. Oddly cute romp.
