Pirates, Mermaids, Sea Monsters and more
Deadmen Walking: A Deadman's Cross Novel - Sherrilyn Kenyon,Holter Graham

3.5 stars
Pirates, Sea Monsters, Mermen, Sprites and many more.
Overwhelming and confusing at times, many new types of beings, powers, worlds and add a new history and you have a lot to digest. This first book in Ms. Kenyon spin off series is all about the world building and it is a complicated world as I've found her others to be. I would have loved an illustrated guide to keep the visual and background of these characters in order. The new characters were amazing, the merman/mermaid my favorite of all I love her design on the mythical beast. Really an illustrated guide would have been awesome.
Thorn from her Dark Hunter series is featured in this new series, he is the lead of these Deadmen. Deadmen, pirates who sail the seas sending demon/wicked/evil back to where they should be. The Deadmen are all second chance wrongdoers looking for some form of redemption from their fate. This book focuses on one couple, the Captain and his lady. Their past combines and lashes at them until blood is drawn and death is always waiting. Yeh that's all I'm giving you.
The book ended with a cliffhanger and my favorite character was the one hanging off the cliff but one slim finger. Now I'll be waiting forever to grab book 2 and see how they faired.

Review: Stolen by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey #2) by Nina Croft
Stolen by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

Ruby finds herself back where it all started. Her mission may be back on track but now she may be in more danger than ever before.

Here we get to see more of the other creatures Ruby and her friends have to deal with and the villains they have to defeat. There were a few twists along the way that kept the story interesting and a pretty awesome, action-packed, nail-biting ending, which was another cliffhanger.

We also got to see Killian in a more redeeming light, which was good of course. Unfortunately Ruby continued to act like a child in a chocolate factory regardless of everything of what was happening to her. I mean, I get that there are certain things that get some people off, and hey! More power to them for enjoying what they like when it comes to sex. However, I wished she started acting more like a hero and less like a lioness in heat. All in all a good continuation to the story and I’ll definitely read the final book.

Arc Review: Rescued by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey, #1) by Nina Croft
Rescued by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

I’ll start by saying this: H-O-T! Because it was. It was sexy, funny, and actually pretty interesting for such a short story. Ruby was an every-day woman that dreamed of traveling to other planets and when her dream became true it was definitely not the way she had wished it was going to be. Now this is an erotica more than a romance so if you’re going to read it don’t think there are going to be many tender moments and be prepared to read about a woman ready to live every moment as if it was her last (because it very well could be), threesomes, sex-crazed aliens, and insanely hot humans.

My 3-star rate is because I think stories that deal with rape and violence towards sex slaves have to be set up in a very specific way otherwise those issues may look as trivialized and it may look as if they are not being taken seriously and to me that was a problem in this story.

The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi 
The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi

Interesting and so much fun. I'm going to love this series. This is a different universe for Scalzi: the planets are mostly not habitable on their surfaces, The universe isn't full of fascinating intelligent species, although there are a fair number of humans scattered about. Two of the main protagonists are women, both of them clever as hell, one also profane as hell. Her language, her incredible, individual, hand-crafted bespoke foul language is one othe the lightest and best ongoing jokes.

 

The story is concerned with a colonized universe, a new emperox of same, a clever mathematician, a clever foe, political machinations, and much of it slower than slugs because of the time constraints on communication.But even though the timeline is lengthy, the books never flags. It zips on, only filling in small amounts of the gaps.Oh, the depths of those plots!

 

It reminds me a bit of some of the Foundation books, except with a lot more humor. It more closely resembles Scott Westerfeld's novels of his Succession empire.

 

Scalzi does a great job of keeping the story grounded, while also maintaining his sense of humor.

 

Supremely enjoyable.

Are Pirates Polite?
Are Pirates Polite? - Corinne Demas,Artemis Roehrig,David Catrow

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD850L

Even though pirates do some things they shouldn't, they are always polite! This book describes all the things pirates do and how no matter what they are doing, they are always polite. I would use this book with younger students to teach manners.
