What would it be like to have a love slave?
Fantasy Lover - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Love slave, it sounds like every girls dream right? Sex all day having a man at your beak and call to please you. It all sounds great but what about the man who has to serve your every whim does he enjoy it? What if hes been doing it for thousands of years. Would it make him happy or leave him broken?

 

Grace Alexandria thinks about none of these things when one drunken night when she conjures Julian of Macedon on a whim goofing around. She did not really mean to do it, now shes doing everything she can to make him happy and a little less broken while she tries to find a way to free him.

Dragonmark
Dragonmark: A Dark-Hunter Novel (Dark-Hunter Novels) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

I never thought I would rate one of Kenyon's books below three stars. While this wasn't horrible, it just wasn't what I expect from her. 

 

In all, or most, of the dark hunter books there has been great character development. I really felt as if the characters could have been real living people. Not this one. There was a lack of passion, personality, and individuality that this author normally aces in every book. The humor that these characters normally have was missing too.

 

The world that these books are set in is extremely complex. Kenyon normally conveys it in a way where it is expanding not just dumped all at once. There is a lot of world dumping in this. Some of it is told through dialogue, and not in a good way. It felt at times like the characters were reading from textbook or something. Does that make sense?

 

Parts of this confused me. There were characters that I either don't remember, or maybe new to the stories. 

 

I feel this was wrote to expand the amount of characters and create a way for this series to continue to grow. After as many books that there is, mid twenties I think, Kenyon is running out of ways for the stories to grow. I fear that the world I have grown to love is starting to become something else. Hopefully there is good to come, but it will amaze me if it does. I miss the old dark hunters that patrolled the streets of New Orleans. The ones who fought the bad vampires. 

 

If you read this series I think this is a crucial book that must be read in order to continue what is to come. Just be prepared to be confused. If I didn't see the cover, I would probably think this was fanfic. If this is a new series to you, this is not a good book to start with. Go to the beginning.

Dark Hunter Manga Volume 1
The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 1 - Sherrilyn Kenyon

This is not as good as I thought it would be. I feel it lost so much of what made the story so good. Too much bouncing around. It has been a while since I read the book, over two years. I was lost on who was who, what was what. The graphics were good, not great, just good. I haven't read manga in a while, but when I did read it, I was really into it. I will give the second installment a chance, but if that doesn't spark more interest I will not continue.

Excellent adaptation overall
Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters, Welcome to Darkmount - Various Various

These are just the series, and pretty much stick to the script.   Which is excellent.   I loved this series for a reason: it was smart, and funny, and had a lot of psychological depth without being too scary for children.   It was, in my opinion, the best Transformers TV series put out bar none, at least at this point in time.   

 

Being able to read this series is a pleasure for me, like the Irvine novelizations of the MCU movie.   It's just nice to have the series or movies in another medium, and you guys know how much I love comics and graphic novels. 

 

This is the introduction to season three of Prime which was called Transformers Prime Beast Hunters.  The Decepticons seem to have the upper hand, with the Autobots scattered.   Megatron has also taken over Jasper, Nevada and turned it into his home base, Darkmount.   Then Knock Out retrieves Shockwave for him, and things get even more dire for the Autobots with a beast hunter: a Predacon - think robot dragon as Miko points out - who is an Autobot hunter. 

 

It was a dark time, one of the darkest for the Autobots.   And I loved every minute of them gathering their own resources and fighting back. 

 

That being said, I had some issues.   This being in comic format reminded me of how dark this series was, not in theme or tone, but just visually. 

 

 

The sound effect words were just odd: usually in comics they're integrated into the art or subtle.   These were loud and garish and didn't fit with the graphics at all. 

 

 

There were occasional typos.   Optimus Prime takes care on Vehicons instead of takes care of them.   And this, which made me laugh out loud a little: 

 

 

I assure you, Ultra Magnus said report not repoat.   I don't even know what a repoat is...   It was jarring, as were the sound effects, but not so much that I didn't truly enjoy this.   It wouldn't take that much work - a quick proofread and some smoothing out of the effects - for this to be a five star read, but it was not one as currently presented.

Engrossing tale of karma
Hunters in the Dark: A Novel - Lawrence Osborne

This is quite an engrossing tale which takes place in the exotic world of Cambodia. A young English teacher, bored with his complacent life, decides to disappear.  During his first night in Cambodia, he tries his hand at a gambling casino.  What happens there sets off a series of events in which greed, karma and superstition play a huge part.

 

This author has crafted a gripping, suspenseful plot. I’ve recently been very disappointed in how inept publishers’ blurbs have become.   Far too often, their comparisons of one author to another is completely unfathomable.  When I saw this book compared to works of Patricia Highsmith, Daphne du Maurier and Alfred Hitchcock, I feared that I would again be disappointed.  But I do think the comparison to Highsmith and Hitchcock are right on target, although I’m not sure I see the connection to du Maurier.  This author knows how to structure a very neat plot and how to create a haunting, chilling atmosphere.  I cared for this naïve young Englishman and wanted to shake him many times as he innocently walks from one danger into the next.  I noticed that some reviewers are saying that the book starts out too slowly, but I think the author did a great job of slowly building up the tempo of the work.  If it does start out slowly for you, stick with it and I think you’ll appreciate as the story progresses just how fine a plot this author has produced.  I’ll be looking into more work by Mr. Osborne.

 

Very entertaining literary thriller.
