4.7 Out Of 5 "Meda Rules" STARS
Crossed (Soul Eater) (Volume 3) by Eliza Crewe (2015-08-13) - Eliza Crewe

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Crossed

Eliza Crewe

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

War is here.

 

Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and demons and even Chi has to admit isn’t going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda’s eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda’s forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles.

 

As the Crusaders take more and more drastic measures, the tables turn and Meda suddenly finds herself in the role of voice of sanity. No one is more horrified than she is. When old enemies reappear as new allies and old friends become new enemies Meda has to decide—again—whose side she’s really on.

 

And then the Crusaders decide that Meda should go to Hell. Literally.

 

Can’t a monster ever catch a break?

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A completely spoiler free review for all three books in the series.  I have a couple of questions for Eliza Crewe…

 

  • The first one…was your proofreader so into this story, that they ended up missing a ton of typos because there were so many?  They kept taking me out of the story…so annoying.  Ugh.  I don't remember the first two books being this badly in need of proofreading.  Anyway, other than getting a tad preachy, this is my only complaint about this book.

 

  • The second question…how come you've never written anything else besides this series???

 

This series despite those typos is exceptional.  It's not only darkly imaginative, it also has one of the best heroines ever.  Meda's so unapologetically snarky, and she does so without making my eye's roll…which I've found, lately, can be difficult to do.  The rest of the characters round out this ensemble quite nicely.  And the interesting dynamics going on this edition of The Soul Eaters Series made this to be a splendid finale.

Captain Marvel, Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More

This is yet another graphic novel that I picked up off of Amazon Prime on an impulse. I saw Avengers Infinity War not too long ago. I had heard that the next Avengers movie will feature Captain Marvel and early next year she will get her own movie so I wanted to learn more about her. I remember the Male Captain Marvel from the seventies but this is a whole new character.

 

Captain Marvel, Volume 1 is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick with art by David Lopez. This book includes issues 1 through 6 of the comic series and one self contained story. The tale begins with Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) finding an alien trapped in a capsule heading to earth. She saves the alien and then returns him to it's home world. 

 

 Once she arrives Captain Marvel discovers that the alien's planet is in danger and in conflict with the Galactic Alliance and the Spartax. She decides to stay and help the alien race but this will set off a chain of events that could alter all of the Marvel Universe and put her at odds with The Avengers. This book also includes appearances from The Guardians Of The Galaxy and Iron Man.

 

My main complaint about this book was that since I didn't know much about this character I was wanting a little orgin story but I didn't get it. Even though it started with a first issue it felt like I was starting a story in the middle. I realize that this is how the Marvel comics universe works, everything is connected and if you don't know anything about the universe you may be a little lost but I still would have liked a better starting point.

 

This is an entertaining book though.The characters were interesting,  the art was decent, the story was ok but nothing extraordinary. The book held my interest but wasn't as good as The Totally Awesome Hulk which I read not too long ago. There was a lot of potential in this book though, I would read more if I got the chance and I'm now looking forward to the upcoming movie.

great book and great characters
Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend - Kerri Carpenter

Lola’s best friend and roommate was Frankie. Lola was getting over her breakup with Mark who had dumped her for a younger,prettier, and more fun girl per Mark. Lola preferred being in a committed relationship to randomly hooking up. As a homebody Lola’s preference was to spend the night with her boyfriend cooking together, binging Netflix rather than being drunk at a bar making idle chit chat with some douchey guy who smelled like beer and way too much aftershave. Whereas Frankie loved going out. Frankie was an expert flirt and men always seemed to flock around her. Basically she was Lola’s polar opposite. Lola was a librarian . Frankie wants Lola to crash a H S reunion that wasn’t theirs  with her. Then Frankie managed to get her way as she always did and she stood outside with Lola at Kennedy H S reunion and Frankie had also made Lola over.Luke had a feeling he wasn’t going to like this his ten year H S reunion. But he had promised some friends he would make it. Then Luke sae Ryan and then his other friends from his old crew. Oliver had been Luke’s best friend since kindergarten. Luke was an architect. Luke love's to date but he doesn’t do commitment. Luke has sisters that are triplets, and all three plus his mother keep trying to set him up with someone. Luke saw Lola but her tag said her name was Kell Martindale but Luke had dated Kelli and this woman wasn’t her. So Luke goes up to Lola and starts talking to her then lets her know she is not Kelli but he won’t say anything if she will come to his family reunion next weekend as his pretend girlfriend.Luke and Lola are attracted to each other. Lola had been an only child and so had her parents and when they died young that left Lola with no family. Luke shows up  at Lola’s bocce game Monday night and even plays and they have a good time. Then they meet up again to get to know each other better for when they go to the reunion. Lola gets sad when she says she has no family and Luke kisses her. Luke felt her lips were intoxicating. Luke had kissed a lot of women but none of the kisses had felt like this. After the kiss they shared a glance of wonder , lust, and curiosity. Lola went to Luke’s reunion and Luke was the only man there until Oliver gets there later in the day. Lola had a great time and loved being with Luke’s family and wished she still had a family. But she hated the lie about the fake relationship and told Luke why. Luke ended up staying the night and sleeping and staying with Lola all week. Frankie had pulled Lola aside at the girls night as she was really worried Lola was going to be hurt as she had feelings for Luke. Then Lola went to Luke’s family again- as they had invited her at the family reunion- for a barbecue.

I loved this book, it was a great romance. I loved how close Luke was to his family and how they interacted. I loved hoe Frankie took the place of family for Lola. I was sad for how Lola’s family had passed on and left her alone. I felt like I was there with everyone and that is a tribute to this author. I also felt bad how Luke’s father abandoned his family and it still messed Luke up and hurt him. I loved Lola and Luke together and how they interacted. I also loved how Frankie and Lola interacted. I loved the plot and pace of this book. Happily I could find nothing to criticize in this book and I highly recommend

Blog Tour w/Review - Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend

 

It  wasn’t  shy librarian  Lola McBride’s idea  to crash someone else’s  high school reunion. Her best  friend made her do it, insisting  that having a little fun with a super-hot  rebound would make her forget about her recent  breakup. That’s when she meets the hottest guy she’s  ever seen.

 

Architect  Luke Erickson  had no idea attending  his ten-year reunion would  turn out to be so fun. He  catches the sexy brunette in a  lie, and he counters with a proposal—He’ll  keep her secret if she helps get his family  off his back by pretending to be his girlfriend  at an upcoming family reunion.

 

From  one reunion  to another, Lola  and Luke are suddenly  spending a lot of time  together. Good thing they’re only pretending, or this super-secret relationship could get really complicated.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lola is talked into crashing a high school reunion with her best friend. They do not really know anyone. Before they can really enjoy the festivities, she meets a hunk who is interested in making a deal.

Luke finds himself enamored with the animated Lola. After starting to get to know her, he figures she would be an ideal woman to take to the family reunion. His family just will not let up on the matchmaking.

This pair has the banter and the sparks flying from the first moment. The attraction is mutual. Very sexy and fun book where I even wished for a sequel. You are not going to want to miss this.
