Reading progress update: I've read 35%.
Stories of Your Life and Others - Ted Chiang

I'm reading out of order, so I'm starting on "Understand". Two things strike me starting off the bat: I would NEVER admit to memorizing those 14 digits so fast and well as to recall them backwards (I realize that I might be a paranoid "too-genre-savvy" book-worm, but still); and (given that phone-call) this guy is about to find out what a social curse true high intellect is.

 

Aaaannnd right after the guy asks for it. Goodness! This guy has never read or watched any sci-fi, or wish-fulfillment stories.

Well, it looks like I'm getting back into the reading saddle with a vengeance. This is stunningly gorgeous, and the writer seems to like the big questions.

 

I'm moved beyond words and feeling mighty greedy for a Spanish copy of my own, and I'm just two stories in.

Tiger Lily and Hook enter into the story – more wartime activity
Peter Panzerfaust, Vol. 2: Hooked - Tyler Jenkins,Kurtis J. Wiebe

 

 

In this second volume of a comic collection which runs to at least 5 volumes, we meet Peter Panzerfaust as his group of Lost Boys and the Darlings encounter Tiger Lily and her Braves as well as the Nazi villain, Hook. This WWII drama revolves around rescuing Felix from the Germans

 

The story told in sepia tones is engaging and nicely-illustrated as warfare continues as the Germans advance through France. I've got the next three volumes to work through and it should be worth the journey. Recommended for its novel perspective, continued action and developing characters.

Review: Hooked on a Witch (Keepers of the Veil #4) by Zoe Forward
Hooked On A Witch - Zoe Forward

 

 

Pleiades witch Shannon Randolph has been framed for a theft she didn't do. She has one week to return a stolen relic to the god it belongs or she'll be executed. What's worse? Evil magic-wielding wackos are coming out of the woodwork after her to get it. But the biggest danger is Merck. This sexy, dangerous witch-hunter who understands all forms of magic might be her only hope. Enlisting his help may require she be a very naughty witch.

The moment Shannon strolls back into Jason Merck's life he's in trouble. There's something about the witch he can't resist, but he must. The witch hunter can't fall for the witch.

 

 

 

Hooked on a Witch is a spectacular addition to the Keepers of the Veil series, it has everything one needs to be able to hop dimensions and fight evil.

 

 

The romance between Shannon and Merck is a see saw of emotional upheaval that is complicated by family, friends secrets and most of all bad guys coming out of the woodwork. Both are strong characters that readers can not only relate to but really become involved in the drama of their lives. Merck has a sexy mysterious, secret wielding vibe going on that shows readers how hot he is but also how vulnerable making a definite book boyfriend.

 

 

Thrills and chills keep readers on the edge of their seat as we get to the suspense and boy is there a lot of that going on because the romance itself is full of it, especially with all of its ups and downs and the story has villains everywhere, a few secrets, a lot of magical action, and quite a few gods, goddesses and other powerful beings involved which also means that the story is full of action and surprising twists.

 

 

Secondary characters play strong supportive roles that help make this story one to remember but if you haven’t read the first books in the series them I strongly recommend that you do because this one picks up where Playing the Witch’s Game lets off and although the story gives readers enough information to keep up if you haven’t read the previous books, I feel that readers just wouldn’t get the whole effect and full understanding of just what is happening in this world full of Greek mythology. 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hooked on a Witch and I can’t wait to read the next Pleiades witches book and find out where Zoe Forward takes the series next.

 

 

 

Hooked on a Witch is the 4th book in the Keepers of the Veil series.

 

Hooked on a Witch is available at:

good story and characters
Hooked On A Witch - Zoe Forward

Shannon is a Pleiad witch and Jason is a witch hunter but in evil witches or dark magic practitioners. Jason’s father is Poseidon. Shannon has been accused of stealing Poseidon's Trident. Shannon is one of seven pleiad witches and finds herself in trouble as a Goddess wants the Trident but has accused  Shannon of taking it and now minions were after her. But Shannon didn’t take the trident and had no idea where it is. Shannon is determined to find someone to help save herself and the other witches. Shannon isn’t evil so Jason won’t hurt her but he does want to know why she is in town. Shannon and Jason had been together in school and had liked each other a lot but neither knew how the other felt. Shannon doesn’t really trust Jason. Their family and friends are not happy they are working together. Jason also has to deal with Shannon’s father who thinks Jason is evil and dangerous to Shannon. Shannon had been kidnapped before and Jason had rescued her.  But they are working together to try to find the trident.  Shannon and Jason are not only against the goddess but an evil witch named Anais  who wants the trident. Shannon used to work as a contract camerawoman until her mom suddenly died then Shannon got the position of head of the other Pleiades witches which Shannon hadn’t wanted but is doing the best she can. Who were female descendants of the Pleiades Greek Goddess.

I liked this book a lot. I loved the adventure and mystery. I liked how Jason and Shannon had known each other before and then this time their relationship heats up and  becomes hot. I liked how Shannon asked her friends on her weak points in magic instead of just trying to figure them out herself and make some bad mistakes she could have avoided with some help. I also loved how Shannon did what she had to do for the people who look to her for guidance and leadership. I loved how Shannon and  James worked on overcoming all the obstacles they have before them to overcome to be together. I loved how the author gave us some new new mythological creatures. I didn’t understand why Shannon’s father was so distrustful of Jason, Shannon is good so she won’t have a problem with Jason. I was a little confused about Jason’s backstory and well as the Gods and Demigods. I found this to be a fun read. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
