SHADOW SOLDIERS by MADELAINE MONTAGUE
Shadow Soldiers - Madelaine Montague

Kaitlyn O'Connor is still one of my favorite authors, but in saying that for some reason when she writes under her other pen names she's not as good. This book was like an O'Connor-lite. There wasn't much about the shifting and the guys got along really well for men that are fighting over (well maybe fighting over is too strong - maybe pouting would be better) the affections of one girl. Usual HEA (happy ever after) but sometimes I like those. 3 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: The Soldiers of Halla by DJ MacHale
The Soldiers of Halla - D.J. MacHale

You know what makes a great book? Authors who aren’t afraid to get dirty; authors who don’t hold back on tragedy. This is especially true in adventure books — if your characters are frequently put in dangerous situations, bad things should happen. Yes, maybe they’re able to get out of those bad situations and rise above it, but it shouldn’t be easy for them. D.J. MacHale is one author who definitely doesn’t hold back and definitely doesn’t make it easy for his characters in the final battle.

 

I am very satisfied with the conclusion of this series. All the characters showed tremendous growth and the final battle was pretty awesome. MacHale did some careful planning with this series, because I noticed things that tied back to clues given in previous books, which was fun. This is the point I was waiting for throughout the entire series, and like I said, MacHale doesn’t hold back. The stakes are high and it gets dangerous for Bobby and his friends.

 

The only thing I didn’t like was the explanation of what makes them all Travelers and how the gates were formed. I know it’s a fantasy/science fiction novel, but it was just a little too far-fetched for me. I’m not going to go into detail due to spoilers, I’ll just say that I think there could be far better explanations to the one MacHale chose.

 

However, this was a satisfying ending. It got kind of shaky for me around book 6 (The Rivers of Zadaa), but I continued with it because I was invested in the characters by that point. Around book 8 (The Pilgrims of Rayne), I was feeling it again, and now I’m glad I stuck with it. Soldiers of Halla is a great book full of excitement, danger, adventure, friendship, and everything that I love about the Pendragon series. Honestly, I think it’s the best book of the series because the stakes are raised so high and the characters really have to struggle.

 

I recommend this entire series to lovers of young adult adventure/fantasy. They’re imaginative, exciting books that don’t disappoint.

left wanting!!!
Sam's Soldiers (Boys of Brighton Book 2) - Tasia M. Smith
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
5 weeks ago, Spider and Dante walked into Sam's life and he has never been happier. His heart, though, was never part of the deal. Now his men have left and Sam is heartbroken. And his life is in danger.
 
This was a nice easy read, a good read, really, but I'm just left....
 
WANTING!!!
 
Dante, Spider and Sam are already in the relationship, even if was only supposed to be temporary while the soldiers are in town. But what I wanted was the HOW. HOW did they come to be together. I wanted to know what each man thought about they were doing, how they were feeling. I wanted, possibly, even some of how Dante and Spider came to be together.
 
I just wanted MORE. I always want more, I know I do but here? Here, I think I am fully justified in saying that. I try NOT to read other reviews before I read a book. I made the mistake once and it totally put me off a book, made me pick out every single negative thing, I don't do that any more. So I read a few for this book AFTER I had finished. I found other reviewers saying the exact same thing, they were wanting the HOW they came to be together.
 
This is billed as book two. I can't find a book one, unless its not tagged with the Boys of Brighton label. I WOULD like to read future books. I like the way Tasia tells the tale, for the most part.
 
Still, its not too complicated, and only loosely crime/thriller, not too taxing on the brain, some well written sexy scenes between the three of them and one of just two. Some violence, but not much. I didn't spot a single spelling/editing issue either. so.....
 
3 stars
 
**same worded review will appear on Goodreads/Booklikes, Amazon.co.uk/.com, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**

Soldiers Live (The Chronicles of the Black Company #10) (Final)
Soldiers Live - Glen Cook

Title: Soldiers Live
Series: The Chronicles of the Black Company #10
Author: Glen Cook
Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Genre: SFF
Pages: 528
Format: Kindle digital edition

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

The Final Chapter of the Black Company. The Company has made their home in the new world, but nobody wants to stay. Not the company, not the people of the world. So between Sleepy and Croaker, the Black Company once again invades their "homeworld."

But Kina, Shivetya and the Lady's Sister are still around and still plotting. Is the Black Company the people we have come to know in the last 10 books, or is the Black Company an idea that mutates and changes across time and across worlds?

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

What a fitting end to this series.  All of the characters we have come to know meet an appropriate end for the Black Company. Which means that about 9/10th's of them die.

That brings up the first thing that I appreciated about this series. Cook walks the razor thin line of making us care for and like particular characters and still making them meet the problems that they face without the assurance that they will survive. Cook doesn't introduce characters JUST to make them die but neither is anyone a Luke, Han or Leia.

 

The worlds go on. I like a happily ever after, but until the End of Days and the Judgement Day, I know that just won't happen. It is good to see how humans strive and continue to fight. I wouldn't like a steady diet of this bleak outlook but I do appreciate the reminder that life is tough and people we love do die.

 

Cook is also very deft with his philosophizing through his characters. Instead of being beat over the head, we get quick slaps to the back of the head. A little sting just to remind us.

 

Finally, the story. Cook took us through a journey that spanned worlds where we were only expecting towns. Powers and Prophecies came and went, people rose and fell and through it all the Black Company existed. In different shapes, in different forms, with many purposes but always surviving. I loved reading this series and thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent in this world.
