Court of Wings and Ruin
A Court of Wings and Ruin - Sarah J. Maas,Amanda Leigh Cobb

 

 

I loved this book. It was a fantastic end to the series. I highly recommend it. The narrator is different for this book, but she did an amazing job. There is less sex in this one than in the previous book (which was sort of a relief - it was a bit much in the last one but it did make sense in the context of the story).

 

After 64 hours in the world of Prythian, I am ready for something new. But I'm thrilled to have met Feyre & Rhysand and the rest of their family. This series is a must-read for fans of Maas, and of fantasy.

A Court of Frost and Starlight...
A Court of Frost and Starlight - Sarah J. Maas,Amanda Leigh Cobb

It was nice visiting Velaris again, catching up with the characters and seeing how they're rebuilding their lives after the war.  Now I'm ready for a full length story with some action...

The Slant Six
The Slant Six - Christopher Cobb The Slant Six - Christopher Cobb Hold on to your bits, folks, and keep this book away from innocent eyes. The Slant Six is an exercise in naughty, punny action fun set in outer space. This is a world that has seen all of our favorite classic cars re-imagined, proves that movie franchises never really die, and so much more. There's even proof that one particular family drama is going to survive until the sun goes supernova and kills us all. (And probably beyond that. Somehow.) Apart from the (welcome) homages and nods to classics, Christopher Cobb's world of commercialization, racing, and  Serverse powered by Applesoft is surprisingly believable.

Loman Phin is your classic down-on-his-luck good guy with a sad backstory that gets caught up in a situation that quickly gets out of control. There's androids ("faxes"), grifters, d'Seussians, and egocentric snizz-faces abounding. This isn't a story that happens in spurts and dribbles. Its well lubricated and revved up from start to finish. And of course there's the ending. The ending for The Slant Six took me by surprise. And, to be honest, at first I didn't particularly care for it. However, upon reflection, it was a very suitable ending. After all, not all books that are funny have to be funny all the time. 

Christopher F. Cobb's imagination is shown off perfectly in The Slant Six. So much of it, from general feel to outright puns, will appeal to Piers Anthony fans. His more adult works, anyways. (Pornucopia, anyone?) At times it's easy to forget that there is an actual story being told, as you're easily distracted by all the fun (or gross) imagery Cobb lays out for you. But there is indeed a story, and a subplot you'll root for.

It took me a few pages for The Slant Six to suck me in, but once it got me worked up, it was hard to look away. The pacing is great, the dialogue is perfect, and th action feels almost non-stop! The Slant Six is outrageous, hilarious, dirty-minded, and entertaining from start to finish. I highly recommend it (unless you're prudish and/or easily offended).

My Review of Forge: Dawn of Trials
Forge: Dawn of Trials (The Chronicles of Tov: Forge Book 1) - Chan Martinez,James C. Cobb

Forge: Dawn of Trials by C S Cobb is a coming of age story of Forge and his rite of passage ritual in the Cave of Trials.

 

This story has potential, but the execution left a lot to be desired. I felt as though the author was writing to middle grade children for several chapters, then suddenly writing to very young children, then back to middle grade kids. The tone of the writing was very inconsistent. The characters could have been better fleshed out. There were several grammatical errors, which interfered with my reading flow. There is a bit of a cliff-hanger, which wasn't too bad since the author gave clues that there would be such an ending. Overall, I feel this book is geared towards children 9-12.
