Nest
Nest - Terry Goodkind
This is the first book I have read by Terry Goodkind, I really don't care for fantasy type stories, but when I was offered this one and read the blurb I thought, this is just my kind of story, scary, speculative type story. 
 
"For the past three weeks, John Allen Bishop had been keeping the devil chained in the basement" John Bishop is a young man with developmental issues, who can "see the evil" in people's eyes. A series of events end up taking this young man's life.
 
Kate Bishop is John's sister who is just a normal woman, living a normal life and becomes involved in the investigation into her brother's murder. She finds that she has the ability to identify killers just by looking into their eyes. Now that is pretty scary in and of itself, but there are other people out there with the same ability and they can tell when a person has the ability like Kate does. That puts Kate in great danger. She meets Jack Raines, an author, who actually works for Mossad, the intelligence agency for Israel. What Jack does is find people with Kate's abilities and try to protect them from predators out to kill them.
 
These predators go to the Dark Net, a part of the internet used for computer hacking, pornography, and other nefarious acts. Jack and Kate must find these people and kill them before they kill her. This proves to be a terrifying task and they both may end up dead.
 
I have to say that this book was a real page-turner. Just the very idea that you could have the ability to see evil in a person's eyes and see how they are going to commit a horrible crime would be overwhelming. The author has indeed a vivid imagination and an enormous ability with the written word. If you love a good thriller, this one is for you.

The Nest - DNF
The Nest - Cynthia D`Aprix Sweeney

I listened to 3 CD's out of the 9 and I had to stop. I just got bored.  Leo had his drama at the beginning and he seemed to have his family tied around his finger. Bea, did she have control of the family or did she just like to think she did? Anyways, I heard enough that it just wasn't keeping my interest for a third of the book being completed. Moving on....."

The Nest
The Nest - Cynthia D`Aprix Sweeney The description of this book includes the word funny which I didn't find. Really it's just a life story. Siblings are supposed to inherit a bunch of money. One has drug and legal fees that affect them all. Then the story reveals over time how they're all pretty flawed and how everyone is going to be okay in the end. All of the characters are struggling with some kind of issue. There are problems in jobs, money, attitudes and every area. The siblings are the causes of their own unhappiness and have some growing up to do. The family has it's dysfunction, lows and highs. I wasn't crazy about any of the siblings, but they seemed to have likable romantic partners and offspring for the most part. Overall, I liked it, but didn't love it. Reading this book didn't inspire any major feelings in me, but I can see how it would make an interesting tv show.

Roma Series
Wasp's Nest - Gabriel Valjan

This is the second book in the Roma Series. Bianca is back, this time in Boston, to investigate Cyril Sargent and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. She will be researching wasp's and what the company is doing with them. The research is for cancer research which is great, but of course the big pharmaceuticals don't want cancer to be cured because it would mean a huge loss in revenue.

Bianca's friends Farrugia and Gennaro are also back to let Bianca know that there is an assassin gunning for her. She is also working with her secretive online friend, Loki, who she still does not know the identity of, just online.

To return to Boston meant leaving her lover, Dante in Rome. Returning to Rendition, a secretive agency, meant sacrifices for her but this was what she loved to do, bring individuals to justice. We meet new characters, police detectives and owners of restaurants, and a former lover of Bianca's also turns up, the reader also gets to learn more of italian cuisine, my favorite part.

There is a lot of scientific and technical material to wade through but this is important to the story. Lots of twists and turns that make a great thriller, keeps the reader guessing until the end. There is a lot to like in Mr.Valjan's writings and I look forward to the next books in the series.

Wasp Nest by Gabriel Valjan
Wasp's Nest - Gabriel Valjan

The Wasp Nest is a complicated scheme for what you learn from this. There is a professional assassin out the kill a few targets. We also meet some new friends along the way. Again who is Loki? What does Rendition want?

 

We are back in the United States with Bianca. Her friends show up in a few days laters. Things go from okay to creepy. This book really gave me the creeps and still was good. I enjoyed it none the less but think you can not be creepy out by how it goes.

 

I am still trying to figure out who Loki is and what exactly Rendition wants her to do. She seems to get the help she needs from this computer person who is named Loki. I will tell you there are lots of deaths. I believe we will see more in the coming books for they seem to all running though Roma Underground.


We find out more about Sergeant and Nasonia Pharmaceutical. I do not want to give away much here for it really bring to life and what this book is about. The author did have me confused, but I also enjoy the story along they way. How are Garnero and Farrugia past involved in this all of this? We meet a few new characters and find new friends. There seems to be a connection and something else also know as corruptions.
