Fantasy
Lusten (Kingdom of Nareth Book 2) - Merc... Lusten (Kingdom of Nareth Book 2) - Mercedes Bleau

I'm always game for a steamy vampire tale and this one caught my eye. The world created here is original and intriguing, but with the very detailed glossary of terms - terms that are almost like another language - it reads more like high fantasy than a vampire romance. I was surprised that this one is labeled as erotica. It is steamy, but I would consider it more PNR or Fantasy. The blurb is a little misleading on the setting, giving no clue about the alternate world created in the book. It is a novella length book and by the time I got everything straight in my head, I was at the end (ie. words like Todesgeist, Sangeisten, Denkin, etc.) The romance was good and I feel like the story itself could've been quite interesting had I not been so distracted with learning what everything was. It was just too much of the unfamiliar crammed into too little pages.

Adventureland: Tarzan's Treehouse
The Kingdom of Four Rivers - Guy Salvidge

 

Not much action in this one.

 

The Asian (China? I think) government (possibly others) have carried out a massive depopulation program.

This takes place a few hundred years after and follows a family of traders.

27: Adventureland: Climb Tarzans Treehouse
The Kingdom of Four Rivers - Guy Salvidge

 

Read a book by an author whose initials can be found in "Tarzan" or that has a tree on the cover.

 

 

The Kindle book has bamboo the cover.

The giant stuff is treelike.

Locke & Key, Vol. 4: Keys to the Kingdom - Joe Hill,Gabriel Rodríguez

The creators introduce new keys at a breakneck pace, and continue to ratchet up the tension as Zack becomes increasingly desperate to find the Omega Key. One issue is done partially in a style derived from Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes series.

Fierce Kingdom: A Novel by Gin Phillips
Fierce Kingdom: A Novel - Gin Phillips

A special thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Random House Canada for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Joan and her four-year-old son, Lincoln, have just spent a leisurely day at their local zoo.  Estimating that it is almost closing time, Joan gathers up her son and his toys, and starts their journey towards the exit.  She quickly realizes that something is amiss—there is a shooter.  She gathers Lincoln in her arms and runs back into the zoo.  They are now trapped like the animals.     

Keeping one step ahead, Joan relies on her instincts and previous zoo trips to keep her and her little boy safe.  Her survival instincts kick into overdrive when she discovers there are others that are also trapped, and that there is more than one shooter.  Joan is determined for her and Lincoln to walk out of this alive.  The only communication she has with the outside world and her husband is via her cell phone and she realizes this same lifeline is also putting them at risk.  In a rash, but clever decision, Joan uses her cell phone as a decoy and throws the glowing object into the bushes. 

Phillips' primal and raw novel illustrates the powerful bond between a mother and her child and the lengths a mother will go to in order to protect her child.  This riveting novel pits a mother's love against fear, good against evil, and instinct against rationality.  Spanning three hours, this incredible story will have you mesmerized and your heart pounding until the very last word.
