"When Gargoyles Rise" by Ashley C. Harris

My Thoughts....

This was an interesting take on an ancient group of gargoyles that will keep your attention all the way through the read. If you are into the supernatural then this is a read for your enjoyment! I liked how this author was able to give us story that starts in the present on to the past and back to the present with a cliffhanger in the present [now what will happen to rose, Sean, Sam and Felix?]. To find out you will have to pick up 'When Gargoyles Rise.'

"A Venture of the Heart" by Amelia Judd

My Thoughts.....

I enjoyed this quick read where you found the characters well developed, defined and portrayed in this sweet romantic story. It was quite interesting seeing how this will work it all out for Pax and Sage as it becomes obvious that one will not be able to live without the other as fate will send them a olive branch. With both of these two main characters having their own issues will they be able to give into their true feelings as we find Pax is a 'risk taker and Sage is a rule follower and Pax's sister's best friend?' Well, to find it all out you will have to pick up "A Venture of the Heart" to find out how it all happens and how did the family play into it. Be ready for the twist and surprises that will keep your attention as you as turning the pages to see what is coming next.

Kill Your Darlings Yellow Game - Suspect
The Fine Art of Pretending - Rachel Harris

Stephen King has been identified as the murder in the Yellow game, so I read The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris to collect it. The book is set in the US.

Hard to believe it was a first time writer.

Dictator by Robert Harris
Dictator (Book Three) - Robert Harris

This is the third part of Harris' Cicero series - and it doesn't make much sense without having read the previous 2 novels, Imperium and Lustrum since it picks up right where Lustrum left off and runs through the final 20 years of Cicero's life: his exile and return, Pompey vs Caesar, Caesar's dictatorship, Caesar's assassination, the 2nd triumvirate and the end of the republic.


"Raise, praise, and erase."


But as much as especially the second half  of Lustrum captivated me, this book rushed through major events - and unfortunately also showed that Cicero, in all his idealism, didn't really learn from past events. He again put faith in people who betrayed him and/or turned out to have quite different agendas. He again tried to manipulate events, not realizing that it was he that was manipulated. In that way much of what happens with Octavian and Marc Anthony - even the ill-thought through assassination of Caesar (which Cicero had no part in but sympathized with) -, didn't offer more than what history books teach. Frankly, in some parts, there's more introspection about Tiro than about Cicero. Granted, Tiro is the narrator, but the book is about Cicero.


So, yes, this is a good book, and it concludes this trilogy in an engaging manner - but the undisputed highlight remains Lustrum where the inner workings of politics are actually put to the stand, including democracy vs the rule of the mob vs the rule of one, and Cicero's personality as a politician and as a human-being is defined.
