Flesh by Laura Bickle
 
MY REVIEW
.

Laura Bickle’s Undead in Flesh are not your typical zombies. They are a unique blend.

 

These youngsters do not bite off more than they can chew in this sometimes funny tale of the Undead and they have an ability to go with the flow to save their town.

 

Great storytelling with plenty of fear and danger and a pace that makes for some spine tingling, hair raising reading of the horror kind.

The Dragon's Playlist - Laura Bickle

OMG, what an amazing cover for The Dragon’s Playlist by Laura Bickle. If this is any indication of the story inside, I can hardly wait to get started. How about you?

MY REVIEW

 

I have heard some rumors about Laura Bickle’s writing and now I know, IT’S TRUE! She can spin a heart pounding tale of love and loss, and fantasy and fiction, that blend together in a spellbinding read that you will not be able to put down.

 

Diamond came home to see her ailing father. It is terrible to see a parent weak, ill, a parody of their former self. He had been hurt in a mine cave in.

 

Oh man, she’s got a porcelain unicorn collection. Me too. She talks of her love for trees and the forest. I love them too. I also had a treehouse, and, like hers, it was really just a couple of boards nailed to a couple of branches. BUT, I never had a fiery something coming my way. Hmmm…is it a shadow…is that fire?

 

Money issues force her to take a break from college and she is not happy about it. She is resentful, even though she knows it’s the only way to help her parents. Her ex-boyfriend, Jason, seems to be a permanent fixture at her parents home. She thought it was odd, until she found out why Jason and her dad had such a close relationship.

 

Another mining story with the same theme, attitudes, danger, treehuggers…and the miners who need the jobs. I have read several books, recently, about coal mining and it pisses me off every time it comes up. We shouldn’t be underground, like rats, mining for an obsolete product. Well…let me collect myself…These type of stories get my emotions roiling and I am filled with anger, disgust, sadness, and a feeling of ambivalence.

 

I couldn’t help but laugh at the mention of noodling, and if you haven’t heard of it you are in for a laugh or two. It’s a southern thing. They were supposed to be looking for Buzzard Bill, but the kids are easily bored.

 

Whoa…Not what I was expecting and I love it. Reminds me of Mothman…a bit.

 

The characters have some decisions to make, some attitudes to adjust and some romantic feelings to sort out. Their futures are not easy to discern and their problems read like a true story as they struggle day by day. Sometimes we don’t get all the dreams of our youth, but, like Diamond, there can still be love, happiness and a feeling of contentment.

 

At seventy percent, I am feeling so sad. I went from childlike wonder to anger and disappointment, sorrow and hope. So much heartache. Can there possibly be any happiness left?

 

I cannot stop reading…I must know…OMG! Fabulous, fiery, fantastic, flaming, flawless fantasy!

Embers
Embers - Laura Bickle I liked the Lantern thing, but I did not like how uninterested Anya is in her magical abilities. She's basically like "Oh yeah, I do this thing... but I dunno how or why." Zero fucks given. Also, the romantic interest being in a coma for most of the book was laaame.

Laura Bickle (Dark Alchemy)
Dark Alchemy - Laura Bickle

I am not really sure I understand what's going on especially the alchemy part of it *lol*. But one thing for sure, CREEPY town is CREEPY!! There was a claustrophobic sense to the town, and I had the shivers when it was dealing with the freaky corpses *urgh*. I swear, the whole calcification part of the corpses CREPT ME OUT!! The Hanged Man myth was good and unique; not sure I ever encountered that before.

This one feels good enough as stand-alone. I mean, I saw that the series continued, but much as I liked Petra and her coyote, this felt more like supernatural horror rather than urban fantasy. So I'm not picking up the next book because it is not exactly what I am expecting.

Fantasy Medley 3
A Fantasy Medley 3 - Kevin Hearne,Yanni Kuznia,Laura Bickle,Aliette de Bodard,Jacqueline Carey

This slim volume contains 4 short stories. I was only familiar with one author (Kevin Hearne) who happens to be the only male author of the four. His story, Goddess at the Crossroads is a fun little junket back in time with Atticus O’Sullivan telling a story of his adventures with William Shakespeare and relating to MacBeth. Very fun and lighthearted.

 

The other three stories are all very entertaining as well, with Jacqueline Carey’s offering, One Hundred Ablutions, beinb the best of the four for me. I’m looking forward to reading more of her work and I know she’s coming up in my Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Project. Of the four stories, this one to my mind examines the weightiest issues, the relationship between conqueror and conquered.

 

At some point, I would like to read Laura Bickles’ full length works, but I found myself confused by Aliette de Bodard’s magical Paris, and unsure if I want to know more.

With 3 out of 4 stories at 4 stars and one at 3 stars, I am going with a 4 star rating for the whole volume. Books of short stories are difficult to rate!
