MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #18 Cover A Release Date 8/23/17 - Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov,Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov

All Systems Red and Gotham: Dawn of Darkness were full price, but the Wonder Woman novelization was one dollar, the Alien book was two - and has some Ash, and I love this author - and Power Rangers 18 was two dollars, as BOOM! comics are half off after they're out in the world for a month. 

 

For $16 and change, that was a good haul.

Quick Paranormal
Out-Foxxe'd: A Rosie Peaks Crossover (Th... Out-Foxxe'd: A Rosie Peaks Crossover (The Adventures of Rosie Peaks Book 5) - Madison Sevier

Out-Foxxe'd by Madison Sevier is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for those paranormal fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Sevier has delivered a well-written book that is fun to read.  Rosie and Markus' story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and lots of woo-wooish mystical type things.  I enjoyed reading Out-Foxxe'd and look forward to my next Madison Sevier book.  Out-Foxxe'd is book 5 of the Rosie Peaks Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Odd Child Out by Gilly MacMillan
Odd Child Out: A Novel - Gilly Macmillan

A special thank you to Edelweiss and William Morrow for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

MacMillan's second instalment in the Jim Clemo series is about inseparable best friends.  Despite their vastly different cultures—Noah Sandler is British and Abdi Mahad a Somali refugee—their loyalty sees no boundaries.  After what appears to be a prank gone wrong, Noah is found floating unconscious in a canal in Bristol, and Abdi has been shocked into silence.  

 

Detective Jim Clemo is just back from a mandatory leave as a result of his last case.  Because the investigation seems cut and dried, it is assigned to him.  After tragedy strikes, it is apparent that the case it is more than just an accident.  Social tensions begin to rise as the families fight for their sons and seek the truth.  

 

Told from alternating perspectives, MacMillan's story is a slow, tense burn with a deep plot.  She effectively and deftly captures how relentless the press are.  This is especially relevant and relatable in today's climate—whether they print facts, fiction, or a little of both, people will believe it is spun the right way.  However, there are times where the narrative was clunky which accounts for some of its unnecessary bulk.    

 

While the premise is interesting, the characters were at times a bit too stereotypical and because of this, there are times where the story becomes a bit contrived.  All-in-all, a good read and I will definitely be checking in with Detective Clemo again.

Break Out
Break Out - Nina Croft

Rico is a vampire, born/made in the 15th century. This takes place in 3048, Earth is no more (doesn't say why) and mankind has taken to space. That also means genetic engineering and the discovery of Meridian. Meridian is an expensive mineral that has the ability to make a person immortal. As the series continues, I'm assuming I will learn more about it. Skylar makes Rico and his crew an offer they can't refuse. Skylar has her own secrets.
This was fun. I enjoyed the interactions of the crew of the El Cazador: Tannis, Daisy, Janey, Trog, and Al. Decent action, romance, and banter. Reminded me a little of Firefly. Looking forward to the next. It looks like it picks right up after this one, but with Al and Jon.
