Freebie that was recommended
Graveyard Shift - Angela Roquet

Just downloaded this first book (with more of series already published) based on a friend's recommendation.  Currently free for kindle.

 

Sounds like I'll like the main character if the story isn't too much like too many other UF/PNR books.

 

Synopsis reads:

"The Inferno has Evolved… Lana Harvey is a reaper, and a lousy one at that.

 

She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge.

 

But when a shocking promotion falls in her lap, Lana learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay."

Review: In Rides Trouble (Black Knights Inc. #2) by Julie Ann Walker
In Rides Trouble - Julie Ann Walker

 

Review orginally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures (Dec. 2014)

 

In Rides Trouble

 

In Rides Trouble

Black Knights Inc. #2

Genre(s): Romantic Suspense – Contemporary – Military

Published: September 4th 2012

By Julie Ann Walker

Blurb:

 

Rebel with a Cause

 

Becky “Rebel” Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys-she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them.

 

Man with a Mission

 

Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank’s way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within fifty feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it’s just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back-whether she says she needs him or not.

~ 5 In Rides Trouble Stars ~

 

In Rides Trouble is book two in the Black Knights Inc. series by Julie Ann Walker. I was completely sold on book one and had to get my hands on book two write away. Thank goodness for the library ^_^! 

 

This one was just as good as Hell on Wheels. Conflicts arise and sexy men are in abundance. 

 

Frank “Boss” Knight and Rebecca “Rebel” Reichert are introduced in book one. The author did a great job setting us up for these characters. They are both very strong and caring individuals. When they get together it’s spectacular. This was an interesting relationship to begin with. Frank has some issues manly that Becky is to young and drives him insane and Becky has been in love with Frank from the 1st meeting. These two have loved each other for so long, but its a journey for them to work through their problems before they can have a future together. The misunderstandings and trials that they go through make the relationship/romance that much more stimulating. JWalker gives us a well-balanced story and some great background information on all the characters in the Black Knights team.

 

If you enjoy romantic suspense, then I recommend this series.

Reading progress: 10%.
Rebel Flight - Mindy Klasky

The antitheses of those horrid books I avoid where someone has to sacrifice a beloved pet or familiar as part of their training.  The ones I DNF.

 

Looking forward to this one (a fave author).  So far, an air of Witches in Red or Uprooted -- maybe just because starts in a village.  Was published before (but I missed it somehow).

Hey! I need to read this because I just got told I won an early review copy of the sequel!
Rebel Flight - Mindy Klasky

Boy did I ever want this author wiring more fantasy because her The Glasswrights' Apprentice books are all time favorites.  This Darkbeast Chronicles series is one I missed when published under another name with Simon and Schuster so had marked TBR when saw on her Book View Cafe page.

 

By not reviewing on individual blog, Amazon or goodreads -- I'm not usually picked for the big names in traditional publishing I usually read.  [I sign up for maybe three arcs or giveaways a year from very favorite authors I read (it has to be ones I request for what I would preorder and devour immediately anyway otherwise I don't enjoy the read-for-review because my brain's got this weird twist where it's something hanging over my head).]

Etched in Bone (The Others, #5)
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

Every book in this series have been marathon reads for me, and Etched in Bone was no exception.  I picked it up yesterday morning and pretty much did absolutely nothing else until I read the last page about midnight last night (although I did stop, in the name of marital harmony, to shovel some dinner down; luckily, there was a footy game on last night, so the shovelling went largely unnoticed).

 

I have loved every moment of this series; been sucked into this world so thoroughly that interruptions leave me hazy about reality and I have been as attached to these characters as much as, or more, than any others.  Possibly more than real people I know. 

 

But... this one; this final book concerning Meg and Simon, was not as great as the first 4.  Because this book deviated from the rules the author created for The Others.  In any of the other books, Jimmy would have been a stain on the sidewalk before chapter 3.  I get what she was trying to do here, I get what she wanted to explore, but it was not done as gracefully, and the effect felt forced; its execution more heavy handed.  In short, Jimmy got on my nerves; I stopped being horrified and started getting irritated and mumbling 'why isn't this man dead yet???'.

 

Still, I'd recommend this to anyone who likes urban fantasy and/or parables.  Because this whole series is one giant parable about the human race: our capacity for grace, our capacity for vice, and our wholesale destruction of everything in our path as long as we remain unchecked.  As horrifying as The Others are, I can't look around at what's going on today and not sort of wish our Earth had Naimid's teeth and claws to protect her.

 

I'm attached so thoroughly to these characters in the Courtyard, I'm not sure I'll read the next book; which is apparently in the same universe but with a different setting and characters.  I want more Tess!  But I'll definitely be re-reading these.
