Man, I love this series.
Lockwood & Co., Book Five The Empty Grave - Jonathan Stroud

I don't know if this is the last book, but I actually hope that it isn't. I'm just smitten with everything about this! The characters are fabulous, the stories are just scary enough to be fascinating, and the plots are all amazing. This is the 5th book and it hasn't lost any steam.

 

*happy sigh*

 

It was a good one to read before I dive into something REALLY dark and depressing for my next read. Hahaha.

HELL IS EMPTY by CRAIG JOHNSON
Hell Is Empty - Craig Johnson

Audiobook

Okay, I wanted to complain that the ending (with all of the struggling and almost dying) is like a previous book in this series but the author mentions that at the end of this book - that Walt Longmire is again sitting on the porch healing, looking at the horizon, trying to come to terms with what happened. The story itself was really good. I'm just hoping that the author doesn't put Walt through these constant life and death struggles because it would get formulaic and he wouldn't want his readers to get bored.

The Far Empty - J. Todd Scott

I’m fully under its spell. the magic, I think, comes from all the intriguing characters...some of them detestable, some of them noble, some just scared. Josh Brolin should definitely play Sheriff Ross!

The Far Empty - J. Todd Scott

this book actually reminds me of the one I just finished...and it’s not a bad thing. it turns out that J. Todd Scott and Emma Kavanagh have a lot in common as writers when it comes to story structure, and how to successfully shift narrative perspective between a handful of characters, while doing so shows, slowly, how all these interesting characters’ lives intertwine, often in dark and sinister ways (the past crucial to understanding the present); both books feature a character left for dead but surviving in a coma, but even that’s okay, because the wider circumstances are so different. and there’s one way the books are different: Texas doesn’t remind me of Wales.

 

so, suffice it to say, if you were to tell me that Emma Kavanagh and J. Todd Scott got together somewhere for coffee and nailed down,while chatting, how to structure a novel perfectly to serve a complex and thoroughly engrossing plot, I would not be surprised. I wouldn’t bet on it—it’s likely just a coincidence that I’ve selected these two books back-to-back—but I wouldn’t be surprised. anyway, they both do their thing very well—and again, meeting two authors in a row, who are so far apart geographically and yet remind me of each other in terms of storytelling technique, is kind of cool. may not need a third book in a row that is eerily similar, but I’ll worry about that later.

I want another Crime novel now—but something rough, and gritty, hard-hitting, and as American as...as...Texas! on my way...
