Summer in Germany

 

My car dashboard thermometer, yesterday at 1:55PM -- the week before, we'd even been up to 39°C ... at 4PM.  (That's 101F and 102F, respectively.)

 

These are temperatures I know from desert areas ... Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma and pretty much anywhere else in AZ, Death Valley, El Paso, TX; even Los Angeles.  They are NOT normal in Germany.  Or, well, they weren't, until now.  Now scientists tell us this is going to be the new normal by 2050.  I'm beginning to hope I won't actually live to see that.  I love lots of sunshine in summer, but *this* ...?!

 

Spent the past two weeks alternately drenched in an air conditioning-free modern office building (because who needs air conditioning in summer anyway, right?) -- sitting right on a major boulevard, too, so opening the windows immediately resulted in being drowned in noise -- and working my butt off until late at night, when temps had finally cooled down enough to even make focusing on work possible.

 

One morning I saw an office worker going by carrying a sixpack of 2l (67,6 fl oz) bottles of mineral water -- until I took the above photo, I'd have considered that the image of this summer ...

 

Now I'm going to try to catch up with what's been going on on BL in the past two weeks -- a decidedly more enjoyable prospect.  Hope everybody is well and having a good weekend!  (Minus excessive heat.  Or cold, as the case may be ...)

Horse Hunts: A Desert Manhunt (Smoke Tree Mystery Series Book 2) - Gary J. George

Horse Hunts: A Desert Manhunt (Smoke Tree Mystery Series Book 2) by Gary J. George
Free from Kindle and I thought I'd enjoy this read but I loved it.
Am not familiar with the area but my husband spent time there so I'd question him about some things, brings us closer as we age.
Starts out with Horse-the sheriff and he's learned of one of his men being shot while one was drving through the center. He and his deputy Andy head out to the area and he finds out all kinds of clues from things he sees and he knows what direction he walked off in.
They also learn Harvey had killed his wife and put her in the back of the trunk. As the book goes on we hear from Harvey's side and why he did things and where he's heading and why.
We also learn of not only the terrain-very good descriptions, detailed and you can picture them in your mind, but we learn of Horse and how he got that name and his life after retuning from the war and before then when he had met his wife while they attended high school.
Love how the local Indian plays a big part in all this and he knows the court system will never be able to dole out the punishment the man deserves so he takes matters into his own hands.
Love that Horse has a wife waiting for him at home and how she takes care of him. Would love to read more from this series and am noting this is one of my favorite for this month. Would love to read more from this series.

So-So
Desert Rising - Kelley Grant

The world building in this series is pretty good.  The use of an alternate world and the discussion about religion is really good.  Kelley is a fantasy writer who actually seems to really think about the religion that she is using in her world.

 

However, at no time in the book did I feel that any of the center characters were really in danger.

The Desert Spear / Peter V. Brett
The Desert Spear - Peter V. Brett

The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that prey upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind half-forgotten symbols of power.

Legends tell of a Deliverer: a general who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. But is the return of the Deliverer just another myth? Perhaps not.

Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the desert tribes into a demon-killing army. He has proclaimed himself Shar'Dama Ka, the Deliverer, and he carries ancient weapons--a spear and a crown--that give credence to his claim.

But the Northerners claim their own Deliverer: the Warded Man, a dark, forbidding figure.

 

This book is a distinct change of view from the first one, The Warded Man. We must back up and approach this story again, this time from the Krasian point of view. Jardir, who seemed like simply a back-stabbing traitor in book one now has his own version of the same events, giving us an alternate POV in this one.

We learn far more about Krasian civilization, which seems to be heavily based on early Middle Eastern cultures, with warrior values, harems of women, and contempt for outsiders, both non-warriors within the culture & actual foreigners. Many parallels can be seen within Arlen’s agrarian society, which is extremely patriarchal and very hidebound (very like medieval Europe), something which can happen when a society is under siege.

It almost seems, in this installment, that everyone has become much too comfortable with the demon-haunted night. Both societies seem to be channeling their inner demon hunters and the tension of the first book is gone in this regard. Hints are happening that we may soon get the POV of the demons—will they get the same sympathetic treatment as Jardir?

Arlen and Jardir were friends at one point—now they are rivals. Which one will become the great Unifier who will unite humanity and defeat the Corelings (demons)? But while Jardier claims to be the Deliverer, Arlen denies the title just as strenuously. Nevertheless, the demons clearly see them both as threats. These men could also have been rivals over Leesha if Brett had written things a little differently, but that ship seems to have sailed.

I’m displeased that my library doesn’t have book three and there’s no time for them to order it before I see Peter Brett at the When Words Collide conference in August. I’m not usually known for laying out the dinero for new books, but if I can get a bit of a discount at the merchants’ corner, I’ll maybe spring for book 3 (since I note that the library has books 4 & 5).
