Saving The Snow Leopards in The Killing Game by Toni Anderson @ toniannanderson
The Killing Game - Toni Anderson

I love the cover below for The Killing Game by Toni Anderson. I have seen a lot of covers done by Demonza and they do a great job!

 

 

The Killing Game

Amazon Goodreads

 

MONDAY MINI REVIEW

 

I love thriller/suspense novels and Toni Anderson is a must read author for me…then add a wildlife biologist wanting to save the snow leopards…YAY!

 

What do a British SAS agent, a wildlife biologist and a Russian terrorist have in common? Snow leopards. One wants to save them, one wants to kill them, and the other is caught in the middle.

 

I love everything about the book, The characters, both good and bad, they all have their part to play. The location and the objective, who wouldn’t want to travel to Afghanistan on a mission to save something as beautiful and endangered as the snow leopard?

 

Toni Anderson writes some fantastic tales filled with danger, and this is another one I am happy to have traveled through. Keep up the great work and “I’ll be back” for more!

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  5 Stars

GOODREADS BLURB

 

Wildlife biologist Axelle Dehn isn’t about to let anyone harm her endangered snow leopards—not the poacher intent on killing them, nor the soldier who wants to use them as bait. But Axelle is unknowingly entangled in a conflict that stretches back three decades, a conflict that could spark a war between two of the world’s great nations.

 

​British SAS soldier, Ty Dempsey, is on a mission to hunt down an infamous Russian terrorist in a remote region of Afghanistan. Dempsey hasn’t failed a mission yet, but when Axelle is kidnapped by the Russian, he is forced to choose between duty and his heart. He risks everything to save the determined, prickly woman he’s fallen for, but in doing so sparks a deadly series of events that threaten to expose the most successful spy in history. A spy who will destroy anyone who gets in his way.

This one should be titled "Meh, Blah Blah Blah, oh wait something's happening...never mind it's just more Meh"
The Traitor's Game - Jennifer A. Nielsen

This book happend to keep me up until the wee hours, laser focused and transfixed. I'm not sure if it was the writing, the 3 cups of Jasmine black tea or my insomnia but I found it difficult to put down and then even more difficult to eject from my brain in order to let the sleep in. There were annoying parts a plenty... A voracious itch in my cozy reading space that refused to be satiated. This was mostly due to a drawn out, ferverous Hate to an All consuming, unyielding, unparalleled Love that blossomed in just 3 days. "I love her but does she love me? If she does I'll love her always but if she doesn't?!? I'll still love her. She does?..but she shouldn't, but she can't fight it, but she must..blah blah blah". It was sweet at times and the other times it was absolute torture to endure. There were a couple of plot twists that I was blindsided by...YAY!.. and a couple of easier ones to suss out...Meh. The story was told in a duo of dueling POVs. Both Kestra and Simon had unique voices so it was never necessary to flip back and forth in order to remember whose head we were in...especially since Simon's main concern was any and all things Kestra. Kestra on the other hand was a mess making, extremely pretentious turned slightly less pretentious though all around bull headed, wishy washy wet noodle (mainly on the Love front but still...), pain in the rear. I never fully got behind her no matter what her deal was at that moment, especially difficult to pull off since who/what she was changed so often. I wish I liked her better and was able to feel/experience along side her but alas, I found myself stuck between an obnoxious wreck of an MC and a whiny/pining lump of a supporting MC hence the lower rating even though it kept my attention quite handily. The story was interesting BUT, in my most humble of opinions, you've got nothing if you don't have at least one character you can really align yourself with and this bunch?!? They earned a big NOPE from me.


3 stars for the plot BUT the character woes, insta-love mess and overall sense of Meh it cultivated in me lead me to penalize the rating and ultimately wish I had skipped this one. Book #2, Traitor's Heart, is definitely not in my future.

Delay of Game By Catherine Gayle Free!!!
Delay of Game (Portland Storm Book 4) - Catherine Gayle

Fourth-line winger Cam Johnson fights like hell for his team—even if he has to break the rules. A vigilante on the ice, Cam takes on all the battles, whether they’re his fight or not. The Portland Storm is his team—his family—and he’ll take down anyone who threatens them. When one of his on-ice battles lands him in the penalty box, the coach’s fiery daughter calls him for a Delay of Game. Now Cam has to finish what he started.

Terrified that her father’s job as coach of the Storm will be the death of him, Sara Thomas wants nothing to do with the sexy hotheaded player who caused her dad to end up in the hospital. And Cam will do anything to rectify the damage he caused—even if it means taking the fall for something he didn’t do. After all, he’s the team enforcer. What he offers up just might save him, his coach, and Sara, too.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-04-07 02:18
Finding Blue Man
End Game - David Baldacci

Blue Man is missing while on vacation. 

 

Robie and Reel are tasked to find him. 

 

The excuse of keeping it in house is a bit weak, but that's explained why the agency only sent two agents to find the man.

 

He knows secrets and he might be in danger. 

 

That brought Robie and Reel to Blue Man hometown.

 

The not so good part is Reel is acting strange toward Robie. 

 

Robie as being Robie knows something is wrong but not really know how to get the truth out of Reel. 

Robie is not that articulate, and Reel is worst. The thing is, Robie is task orientated and not that complicated. 

 

Even after we know how screwed up his childhood is for Robie by having a horrible father. 

 

Reel last mission is brutal and she is suffering from surviver guilt. 

 

The bad guys are skinheads. Who picked fights and have guns. Not a problem for Robie. And there are more people missing. Witnesses to a mass kidnapping with captives being transported in van.

 

Robie and Reel is trying to find the Blue Man. Yet got distracted with helping a couple, Holly and Luke to runaway from the skinheads.

 

And they met a woman who was once engaged to the Blue Man.

 

Things got interesting. Molly the town sheriff is having a fling with Robie. 

Robie and Reel obviously have feeling for each other. It is hard to be that close to someone and rely so much on a person for not having some sort of feeling for the person. 

Is it love? Humans are animals. And for survival, it is good to pair up with the one who one could reply on for survival. Good match. 

 

More interesting still when Reel frozen up while being chased by bad guys. 

 

Robie step-in and saved them both. Reel is having trouble and Robie has similar doubt on his ability before.

 

Old missile site is being bought up and turned into luxurious survival real estate. One could survived bombing in a silo with steel doors and build in security. 

 

So what's going on in there. 

 

Then everything come together. Missing Blue Man and others, silo and the skinheads. 

 

All in one big pot of bad guys with Robie and Reel being captured. 

 

The sick game of manhunt with uneven odd. 

 

If the writer is not ready to kill of the main characters, then it is fun to read how the main characters survive this one. 

As for characters development. Reel shows her vulnerable side and how she struggle to deal with survival guilt and how she feel about Robie and how much it would hurt if she loses him. That's wouldn't change if they are together or not. Robie is struggling with his feeling too. He act like a horny guy who has sex with one woman while thinking of another woman. Don't know where the writer is going with that. As for Blue Man, not so much as a machine now that we know more about his background. As for character development, Blue Man is acting like a man who accept his actions, which is a good thing even if the actions lead to grief. 

 

Still. It is a good and fun reading. 

 

4.5 stars.

Reading progress update: I've read 309 out of 580 pages.
End Game - David Baldacci

Blue Man is missing.

 

Robie is tasked to find him. He is not investigator, but he care about Blue Man.

 

Reel is also tasked to work with Robie. Reel is pissed at Robie for some reason.

 

Blue Man went fishing, then went missing. They went to where he fished. Found his ex gf and know some other bad guys being active in the area. Skinheads and religious nutjobs.

 

Reel and Robie got into the trouble when helping a woman Holly and his skinhead bf Luke.

 

Holly is the sister of the local sheriff. 

 

Now they are in way more trouble when they got the attention of the skinheads who tried to kill them. 

 

They got rescue by undercover agent. 

 

Robie almost got killed. 

 

Kind of a strange story when there isn't a lot of honest people in town. The charm of the small towns not there.
