Review: Saga, Volume 3
Saga, Volume 3 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

So this is only the third comic series I've gotten into...no, fourth, but that's just my way of saying I've only gotten into comics over the last few years.  Comic Con probably had something to do with that.  Went for the celebrity panels, kept going back for the comics, lol!


Anyway, I. Love. This. Series. 


It's really hard for me to review. The story is fun, the art is beautiful, the characters, even the antagonists, are so likeable.  Just A+ for the whole thing.  I just have one thing to say. If anything really bad happens to Lying Cat... I will be one pissed bee! And see, I kept it classy by using harsh letters instead of cursing.

I have been blessed! I have found another new author to read and a new series that I can sink my teeth into!


Mary Auclair is the new author and the series is Dawn of Dragons which is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi, paranormal romance which has both an historical feel but with futuristic touches that blends perfectly to make it easy to imagine the post-apocalyptic scenery and the lives of the characters that live there. The scenes are brought to brilliant life with well written words that produce the vivid imagery that makes it so the reader feels as if they are part of it, so if the author keeps this up, I will definitely be happy to read all the books she can produce.


All the characters are fascinating, strong and compelling which draw readers in and ensure that they want to know more with the hero and heroine, Aldric and Zara having lots of chemistry and a turbulent relationship with lots of emotional issues to overcome and obstacles to face in order to achieve their ever after which keeps readers glued to the pages as the rocky romance takes grows and the sizzling attraction heats up the pages.


Suspense and anticipation builds throughout the story as Endora tries to accept her situation which tugs at even the most hard hearted of heart strings while facing a man that seems to be made of ice. And then there is Aldric that finds he has a chance at his HEA but finds it hard to show his feelings and reach for it. The emotional turbulence is suspenseful enough, but together they must face an enemy that is out destroy their very lives in this steady to fast paced plot.


Touch of Ice is a gripping tale had me completely caught in its fascinating world from beginning to end and I can’t wait to read the next book.




Touch of Ice is the 1st book in the Dawn of Dragons series.

New Release Review! Absolved (Altered #3) Marnee Blake
Absolved (The Altered Series) - Marnee Blake



Since a brain-altering drug killed most of Luke Kincaid’s town—including his father—and left him telekinetic, he’s determined to stop the fanatic who stole the drug to create his own super-powered army. That means working with scientist Dr. Beth Jenkins, whose graphic tees and beautiful smile are some of Luke’s biggest distractions.

A science prodigy, Beth works with the FBI and solves the toughest crimes, but she can’t figure out what caused her mother’s early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The drug that ravaged Luke’s town is volatile, and the mortality rate is still high, yet Beth is convinced it holds the key to saving her mother, even if sexy and tortured Luke doesn’t believe it should be adapted for commercial use. 

When bodies start to pile up, though, the two loners must decide if the goals that tie them together are greater the fears that would tear them apart.




Thrills, superheroes and supervillains keep readers on the edge of their seat throughout this exciting Altered book.


Beth and Luke are strong, dynamic characters that draw readers in and refuse to let go as they chase bad guys and work through their issues in order to embrace the attraction that pulls them together despite their differences which has sparks flying and the readers easily becoming enamored with the couple. The romance is sweet, full of angst and steamy heat while the fast paced plot keeps readers on edge with lots of twists, turns and thrilling suspense as well as exciting action as they try to get ahead of the bad guys and stop the carnage that they are causing in a diabolical grab for power.


I haven’t read the first two books in this series but I will definitely be remedying that as I was completely captivated by the characters and fascinated with the world. Marnee Blake created an exciting world that is the stuff of comic book heroes, with wonderful characters and some unique elements that add spice to her story and she brought it all to picture perfect life with well written words that make it easy for readers to imagine every last detail. So, I will be reading the ones I missed and looking forward to reading more from Marnee Blake.




Absolved is the 3rd book in the Altered series.


Absolved is available in print or ebook at:

Review: The Rook
The Rook - Daniel O'Malley

So it only took me a year plus to read this thing.  It was a birthday gift from my hubby last year.  It was not something on my wishlist; he went off-script and picked this out himself (with help from staff at B&N).  It's not something I would have picked for myself; however that's not to say that I didn't not thoroughly enjoy it.


My problem with reading this was constant distraction.  For the last year I have picked it up, read a few pages, got distracted and put it down, and the start all over again.  It was a vicious cycle.  The annoying thing was that every few paragraphs/pages I read, I was intrigued, I'd just get distracted by some random thing, kids, animals, texts, calls, etc., and not go back to it for a long while.  Finally, when my birthday came back around and it had been an entire year of me telling hubby I was going to read it, I finally realized that I needed some help to focus.  So I got the audiobook, this way I could listen while I did other things, or read along with it.  I did both.  The audiobook made all the difference; I finished it in about a day, and I have to say it was a good one! 


The story follows Myfanwy Thomas, who wakes up surrounded by bodies and blood and absolutely no memory of who she is and unknown persons trying to kill her.  Lucky for her, her previous self knew this was coming and left instructions via a series of letters.  The new Myfanwy wants to run and start a new life of leisure, but ends up getting caught up in the intrigue mystery of who stole her memories, and why they were trying to kill her.


This is definitely a suspense-thriller, which is not exactly my favorite genre, but it kept me interested throughout.  And the touch of supernatural definitely added excitement to the story.  Myfanwy deals with secret societies that work within (and without) the British government, supernatural powers and happenings, further attempts on her life.  And all the while, she never really knows who she can trust within the organization, and who is/are the ones who betrayed her.


Everything is seen from Myfanwy's point of view, either present day, or her letters to herself.  The story is original, well paced and beautifully written.  Definitely looking forward to the sequel, which I now have to bug hubby to buy for me.  It's his own fault for getting me something that is part of a series.

Review: Andorra Pett on Mars by Richard Dee

Published by: 4Star Scifi (April 2018)


Source: ARC via author


Rating: 5*




Andorra Pett has left the Oort Cloud Café; she’s back on Mars, a place she vowed she’d never visit again. 

She’s gone back for her friend Maisie’s funeral. Everyone thinks it was suicide but the more she learns, the less sure she is. Things don’t add up and she realises that the whole story doesn’t make sense. Something else is going on and the questions soon multiply. 


Why would Maisie kill herself if she’d just had good news? Why is Andi being followed? What was the mystery bequest? When she begins to find the clues that Maisie has left for her, it becomes a race against time. Andi must work out what’s going on and hope that she can get out alive.

What could possibly go wrong?




I'd previously read and LOVED Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café, so when I realised there would be a another novel featuring the supersleuth of Saturn herself, I was really pleased and couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy...luckily, I didn't have to wait long as author Richard Dee was kind enough to send  over a copy.

Although this book picks up where Oort Cloud Café finishes, I don't think it's a necessity to have read that before starting this, as it reads well as a standalone, and any information that you do need is well explained. 


Andi is as fantastic as before, larger than life, beautiful written, and just sounds like someone you'd want to go down the pub and swap embarrassing stories with. Cy is entertaining, and his relationship with Andi is sweet. There is a whole host of other characters that make the book as engrossing as it is. Andi and Cy unwittingly getting sucked into a rollercoaster ride of drama while trying to find out what happened to poor Maisie made captivating reading.


Andorra Pett on Mars satisfied both the sci-fi nerd and crime thriller fan in me simultaneously; it's an intelligently written tale full of twists and turns that I found impossible to put down! Special thanks to author Richard Dee for the ARC; this is my unbiased review.
