Lucifer’s Daughter By Eve Langlais Free!
Lucifer's Daughter (Princess Of Hell) (Volume 1) - Eve Langlais

t drives my dad nuts I’m such a goody two shoes, but the fact that I’m a virgin makes smoke pour from his ears. See, I’m determined to save myself for love, but daddy dear, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. Would it kill you to sin a little?


Maybe he’ll get his wish because I met an intriguing hunk last night in my bar. Could he be the one? He certainly melts my panties like marshmallows over the coals of Hell, but do I dare trust him? My last boyfriend thought he’d gain infamy by killing me. He’s infamous all right. Dad had him mounted on a wall, his version of modern art titled, ‘Touch my baby girl and die’. Cute in a twisted way.

My love life isn’t the only thing I've got to worry about. There’s someone threatening the denizens of Hell, and while my daddy says to not worry my pretty little head about it, I an involved because whoever is behind the attacks keeps coming after me.

Bring it. I’m not afraid. Being a princess of Hell means that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around. It’s what keeps my ass looking great.

Nothing in my life is ever simple, and I blame that on my dad, Lucifer. Assassination attempts, hellhounds, and a rebellion in Hell? A piece of cake compared to the turmoil in my heart. No one ever told me love would be the toughest battle of all.

Blacksad -1-3 Collected volumes
Blacksad - Juan Díaz Canales,Juanjo Guarnido
Blacksad: A Silent Hell - Juanjo Guarnido,Juan Diaz Canales
Blacksad: Amarillo - Juan Diaz,Juanjo Guarnido

This isn't Disney.

For which we should all be very thankful.

First, let me say that the artwork is stunning, in particular how certain real figures were shown as characters in this book.  The series is about a panther who exists in a world similar to our own, but instead of humans, animals.

In the first collection, the thing, the real thing, is the plot. Blacksad is a private detective whose first tale involves solving the murder of his former girlfriend. The best part, however, is the second story in this book, with the last running a close second.  The second story is a look at race as told by the animal figures that inhabit the world. Quite frankly, any novel, graphic or otherwise, that can reference "Strange Fruit" and get it correct deserves an award.

In the best tradition of animal stories, this graphic novel makes you think about the human condition.

 

The second volume of the series, Silent Hell,  takes place in the South, and despite the use of animals, actually does chronicle a story inspired by true events.  The question here is about music, truth, and testing.  Blacksad is accompanied by his reporter sidekick, and the second volume links nothing into the third volume of the series.

 

                The third volume is the only volume that does not deal directly with race, at least not in the same way as the first two volumes of the series. There are subtle hints in Blacksad’s sister and his nephews, but that is about it.  The third volume does refer to the lives of the Beat poets so it does have that tie in, but the overarching social look is missing a bit.

                I do wish that Idris Elba would play Blacksad, simply because it is a role that seem so suited for him.

Yeah, I plan to do a full review of this...
Daredevil, Vol. 17: Hell to Pay, Vol. 2 - Ed Brubaker,Michael Lark

Like I did with Hell to Pay vol. 1, but I gotta say, it's sort of killing my soul. I meant to go allll the way through the 2000's Daredevil, but Brubaker is making me so furious, I have a feeling I might just have to skip a bit. And next up is Lady Bullseye. Ugh. I knew these kinda sucked at the time, but I don't remember how they didn't actually make me want to punch someone or something. Because they do.

 

EDIT: So, I just realized that the next volume is, in fact, not Lady Bullseye but Cruel and Unusual. Which... is just so appropriate.

He Speaks Dead by Adrienne Wilder
He Speaks Dead - Adrienne Wilder

Damn, Briggs!

I am not happy! :/


How can Charlie and Ethan live with themselves after all, I have no idea. This book made me mad :(

I read some reviews and I am glad to find out that I am not the only one who is upset about Briggs being disposable. He was treated like crap during the whole book, used and abused through its entirety (except for the first chapter, granted) 

only to be killed off without a second thought in the end. 

(spoiler show)

 

While Ethan is at least reflecting on the events of the fateful night in the epilogue, Charlie is perfectly cool with having a bright new shiny Ethan in a mighty meat-suit all to himself. Who's Briggs again? Only a person who saved their asses and the world :/ But - not a pause, not a care.


Anyway, I do realise RL is a bitch, but the two MC's are total and complete jerks. The last chapter made me despise Charie. And I don't understand how the author could do it to her character, leaving him a heartless, callused jerk.


2.5 stars

Fantastic!!
Hell Yeah!: Her Hell No Cowboy (Kindle W... Hell Yeah!: Her Hell No Cowboy (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Harland County Series Book 10) - Donna Michaels

Hell Yeah!: Her Hell No Cowboy by Donna Michaels is an amazing story. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. Ms Michaels has delivered a well-written book. Her characters, as usual, are totally awesome and fit this story like a glove. Lincoln and Ashley's tale is packed with drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed every minute I spent reading Her Hell No Cowboy and look forward to reading more from Donna Michaels in the future. Hell Yeah!: Her Hell No Cowboy is book 10 of the Harland County Series and a crossover book in Sable Hunter's Hell Yeah! Kindle World but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
