To Catch a Rogue - Bec McMaster

Oh, so good. Man, Russia was intense and Lark’s back story was so well developed. So much drama. So much depth. So much action. Loved. Every. Second. Of. It. Lark and Charlie have been around since book one in the original London Steampunk series. Charlie is Honoria’s brother who Blade helps deal with the craving virus. Lark showed up with Tin Man very early on and Charlie and Lark have been inseparable ever since. They grew up together and when Tim Man is killed Charlie leaves Lark behind and she hasn’t forgiven him in the years since the revolution. But they are brought back together finally because Charlie is part of the Company of Rogues and he needs Lark’s expertise to rescue Malloryn from the enemy’s hands. What he doesn’t understand is that by asking her to go to Russia literally puts her life in danger and brings to light all of the secrets she has been hiding her whole life. I loved their story. I loved Lark’s background story and how it connects to Obsidian. So good. I want her brother Nicholi to have his own story and I am SO ready for Malloryn’s story too. I read the teaser at the end of this story and his story is next. YAY. So good. So intense. So awesome.

Historical Romance
Going Rogue (Ribbons and Rogues Book 1) - Jessica Jefferson

Going Rogue by Jessica Jefferson is an entertaining second chance historical romance.  Ms. Jefferson has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are entertaining.  Meredith leaves her home and Derek, against her wishes, to live with her aunt in London.   Meredith and Derek's story is filled with drama, humor and spice.  I enjoyed reading Going Rogue and would happily read more from Jessica Jefferson in the future.  Going Rogue is book 1 of the Going Rogue Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Rogue Protocol by Martha Wells
Rogue Protocol - Martha Wells

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was another great installment in the series! These stories have been a lot of fun and I have found that each one tells a really big story in a rather small number of pages. Murderbot is on another mission in this installment that kept me glued to the pages once again.

Murderbot wants to find out what is really going on with the GrayCris Corporation. The SecUnit poses as a security consultant when it encounters a group of people off to explore an abandoned facility. The group has a bot, Miki, that they consider to be their friends which is somewhat confusing (and annoying) to Murderbot. Of course, things go wrong and there is lots of action and excitement as Murderbot works to help save the day.

I really enjoyed seeing Murderbot interact with Miki who was a very different kind of bot. Murderbot has seen people at their worst and expects for problems to occur while Miki has been treated like a trusted member of the group and seems rather innocent in its manner of thinking. I really enjoyed being inside Murderbot's head as it worked to process a solution for the problem at hand. I can't wait to start reading the next installment.

Initial Thoughts
This was great! Murderbot never seems to let me down. I love how this SecUnit operates and engages with the world surrounding it. Miki was wonderful and I thought that its character really gave our SecUnit some thing to think about and consider. I love the humor worked into the story and the level of excitement that kept the pages turning.

Review: Rogue Mage by Brandon Barr and Michael Anderle
Rogue Mage - Brandon Barr,Michael Anderle

Rogue Mage by Brandon Barr and Michael Anderle is the first book in the Path of Heroes Series. Payetta wants revenge on Titannus, the mage who killed her family and destroyed her village.

Plot 3/5: Trope plot.

Characters 3/5: I just couldn't get into the characters. The main character could have used more growth. She became quite monotonous.

World building 3/5: Not much detail of the setting.

Pacing 4/5: Steady with bouts of action.

Writing 4/5: Decent writing.

Overall 3.4

Not what I'm use to from Brandon Barr.

Purchased from Amazon.
