Good things come to those who wait...
The Malice - Peter C. Newman
The Vagrant - Peter C. Newman
The Stars Are Legion - Kameron Hurley

Sweet! Kobo has a sale that actually includes a book I want!

 

Their Explore titles that are out of this world sale has several interesting books on for $3.99 and under (Canadian, not sure where else the sale is applicable if anywhere), including The Malice by Peter Newman, which I had been dithering about buying because it's normally $13.99. Now it's $2.99! So I won't be getting it from the library after all.

  

The first book in the series, The Vagrant, is on sale too ($1.99), but I already have that. The Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley is on sale for $3.99 in case someone has been looking for an excuse to pick that up (it's pretty awesome).

 

The sale is on until May 8th. Currently looking through the lists for more pleasant surprises...

FBI Special Agent Paige Carson hoped she’d be able to start a new life in small-town South Carolina. But when a senator’s sister is murdered and a blank postcard is left next to the body, Paige realizes that a killer from her past has found her–and is sending her a very personal message. From the moment he hired her, FBI Special Agent in Charge Sam McKade knew Paige was hiding something. Prompted by this recent threat, she finally opens up: one year ago, she caught the eye of suspected serial killer Todd Thames. Now he’s come back to pull her into his game, whether she wants to play or not. As the danger increases, Paige and Sam give in to their growing attraction, and he vows to protect her no matter the cost. But the murderer will stop at nothing to get to his intended prey, and the strong arm of the law–and the shelter of her new love–may not be enough to save her.

Absinthe of Malice - Rhys Ford,Tristan James

It's been a while since I've been this disappointed in a book...
Ok, so the last one was my favorite in the series and it set the bar pretty damn high, but still. This one was so different from what I had become used to in the other books - and not in a good way.


Absinthe of Malice is all about the guys in the band interacting with each other and their lovers. POV switches often as we are invited into scenes with the various couples. There is love and fears, old and new demons and I do still love these guys. But it just got so boring. There is very little action here and barely a hint of any kind of bad guys. It felt like the whole book was just building up to the minor cliffhanger at the end and even that did not spark the level of interest it should. At that point I just wanted it to be over. The ending did still ensure, though that I will be back for more when the next book is out.


And as always, Tristan James nailed the narration.

awesome catch up with these boys
Absinthe of Malice - Rhys Ford
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Damien decides to take Crossroads Gin on tour. Miki, Forest and Rafe all have their own demons to chase, as does Damien but he hopes this tour will bring them closer to each other, to get back what they had with Sinners Gin. The further along the tour they go, the more those demons push and torment. Will it bring them closer, or push them further apart?
 
Oh I LOVED catching up with these boys! And I do mean everyone. We get some of each couple, Miki and Kane; Damien and Sionn; Forest and Connor; Rafe and Quinn and even Ma and Da pop up along the way.
 
Each member of the band struggles in their own way being separated from the other halves of their souls. Miki really goes through the wringer here and Rafe is pushed to his very limits. Its full of soul searching, deep and painful, spaced with a reunion of each pair at various points. ( I found it to be not as explicit as some of the other books, but thats not a bad thing, not at all!) It has each band member's feeling about being on tour and on stage. It has each band member's reaction to everything that happens.
 
It also has a CORKER of a cliff hanger! I mean a freaking corker that was like SAY WHAT NOW?!?!?!?!?
 
I need to listen to this too. I could hear Tristan James in my head while reading but I'll say the same as I did in my read review for Sloe Ride. I'm not hearing the VOICES correctly, and it was doing my head in. So much so, I went back and listened to some of Sloe Ride, just to get everyone right. Still need to listen to it though!
 
I'll not say anymore, because I don't wanna give spoilers. BUT! If you are a follower of the Sinners Gin series, you'll need to know this: One more time. Just one more time we'll get to catch up with these guys. Just the one. And I'm sad about that but equally, I know the series end is gonna be awesome!
 
5 stars
 
I was also given the opportunity to LISTEN to this book, via Divine Magazine. I was gifted the audio file.
 
Tristan James narrates, as he does the whole series. And I cannot, absolutely CANNOT fault his work. The man is a genius at the voices of everyone. I have some hearing issues which means I struggle with speech tones, especially when there are multiple people talking. I have NO issues with James' voices. I can define each and every one, clearly, with no bother at all, even when they all wanna take part in the conversation! He portrays all their emotions, their feelings, their fears about this tour, in such a way, that you wanna hug each and every one of the boys in the band, and their mates just like Ma would do.
 
His reading voice is clear and deep and even and lulls you, you know? You sort of get pulled in a false sense of security, because while you are lulling along, listening to an excellent book with excellent narration, Ford will then spit at you, throw something at you that makes you gasp out loud, shout WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT and make you (or it did me, even though I had READ this previously so kinda knew what to expect!) rewind, and listen to the bit again, because you might have misheard James. But no, you didn't.
 
I knew when I was reading this book, I wasn't hearing the voices right. I KNEW I had to listen to this book, even though I have read it already, but I'm finding I like doing that. Reading it, then listening at a later date. Not some much to listen first THEN read though. Sorry, going off topic. I KNEW i had to listen to this book. James does not disappoint, no ma'am, not at all.
 
so,
 
5 stars for the book
5 stars for the narration
5 stars overall
 
** same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Booklikes, Audible.com,Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and Dreamspinner Press**

Absinthe of Malice by Rhys Ford
Absinthe of Malice - Rhys Ford

And we return to the world of Sinners with this 5th book in the series.  :)  

 

The band is out on the road, getting to know each other, learning how to work together as a band and hopefully to bond.  There is music, many adventures, deep thoughts, a few threats and of course, amidst all this band stuff, we get the Morgan men being there for their partners, still learning about them and doing a lot of loving.

 

I enjoyed it!  The book was mostly a furthering growth of the characters, I thought.  I would have liked to see more of Rafe and Quinn, but I guess when you have 4 band members relationships, 4 couples relationships and then the whole Morgan family relationships to deal with, something's got to give.  

 

And then... then there's what seems to be the obligatory Rhys Ford cliffhanger.  *SIGH*  I love Rhys' books to bits, but I hate... HATE this need of hers for these damned cliffhangers.  Her books don't NEED them, they're good enough that they don't need this so very obvious hook to go on to the next one.  

 

That being said... I thought the Sinner's series was finished with this volume, but... I guess not!  *LOL*
