Flamecaster (Shattered Realms) - Cinda Williams Chima
The Warrior Heir - Cinda Williams Chima

So, after The Romantics I started to  re-read one of my favorite series, The Heir series by Cinda Williams Chima. There are 5 books in the series that I know of, and they are all AWESOME! So, I decided to get more books by her. I checked out a book called Flamecaster that she wrote. It was a different style than what she usually writes, but it seemed kind of bland. It was as if she reused story ideas from the Heir series, but buried them in battles, romance, and politics. And the character interactions seemed to be the same. So while it felt like the Heir series buried under a plot, I still like it and hope there are more in the Heir and Shattered Realms series.

Me and my partner (you can find her page here http://chesirecat.booklikes.com/) have some definite differences on our blog posts. I tend to write more long posts that have a lot to take in. She tends to update with posts that are short, and to the point. She also loves romance novels way more than I do.

One way that I use Booklikes as a way to find books is by following people. If you find friends that have the same interests in books as you do, look on their page. They are bound to have a book on there that you have not read yet. And if they are great posters, they will give a summary and rating of the book that can influence your choice on picking a new book.

Review of " Dark Heir" (Jane Yellowrock, #9) by Faith Hunter
Dark Heir - Faith Hunter

This reader's personal opinion, ©2018, all rights reserved, not to be quoted, clipped or used in any way by goodreads, Google Play, amazon.com or other commercial booksellers* 

 

This series is always a good read. Sucks you in quickly which made it also a great choice for last Saturday's Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon.

 

At nine books into the series, not sure I have much new to say about it. I love these characters although I'm ready to skewer Leo that he still doesn't tell Jane details of vampire politics that would certainly have made things less grim and dangerous, even saved some human lives.

 

Definitely Jane got her "I told you so" over not killing Adrianna and the captive Son of Darkness in previous books. Because all hell breaks loose in this book from his escape. The European vamps still not visiting, and we get a resolution about Molly.

 

Happily will be reading on in this series; expecting next books to bring on the European fang heads and more vampire politics.

Ratings scale used in absence of a booklikes suggested rating scale:

★★★★★ = All Time Favorite 
★★★★½ = Extraordinary Book. Really Loved It.
★★★★☆ = Loved It.
★★★½☆ = Really Liked.
★★★☆☆ = Liked.
★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.
★★☆☆☆ = Average.   Okay. 
★½☆☆☆ = Disliked or meh? but kept reading in hopes would improve.
★☆☆☆☆ = Loathed It. Possibly DNF and a torturous read.
½☆☆☆☆ = So vile was a DNF or should have been. Cannot imagine anyone liking.  (Might also be just an "uploaded" word spew or collection that should not be dignified by calling itself a "published book." If author is going batshit crazy in the blogosphere over reviews -- I now know why they are getting bad reviews.  Or maybe author should take remedial classes for language written in until basic concepts like using sentences sink in. Is author even old enough to sign a publishing contract or do they need a legal guardian to sign for them?)

#readathon. Launched! Planned TBR
Terminal Alliance (Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse) - Jim C. Hines
Heroes In Training - Martin H. Greenberg,Jim C. Hines
Nevertheless, She Persisted: A Book View Cafe Anthology - Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff,Mindy Klasky,Vonda N. McIntyre,Nancy Jane Moore,P. G. Nagle,Gillian Polack,Irene Radford,Deborah J. Ross,Dave Smeds,Sara Stamey,Jennifer Stevenson,Judith Tarr,Marie Brennan,Amy Sterling Casil,Brenda Clough,Leah Cutter,Marissa Doyle,
Lake Silence - Anne Bishop
Dark Heir - Faith Hunter
Burn Bright - Patricia Briggs
Cress - Marissa Meyer

It's starting to be a tradition with me to open with a Jim C. Hines book.  Unplanned until this time.  Terminal Alliance (Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse) - Jim C. Hines  kept getting bumped by library waitlist books, not fitting a reading challenge and other borrows.

 

I've got two anthologies handy for quicker stories, Heroes In Training - Martin H. Greenberg,Jim C. Hines  and Nevertheless, She Persisted.  Mostly next in series books.  Lots of not pictured variety in downloaded freebies and kindle unlimited borrows in case mood changes.

 

Nope, no way am I getting through all shown.  I do good to complete 1-3 books if I socialize and do all the activities.  Planning the TBR is half the fun!

Reading progress: 14%.
Dark Heir - Faith Hunter

Love being back with these characters.  I lucked out and it fit Bookshelf BINGO call of "Hunter."  Although by now with this series I can predict the general outline of storyline where Leo hides something, shit explodes, Jane cleans up ...

That was gonna be hard to get out of the carpet. Brains were sticky and adhered to fibers.

Just starting, fresh off library waitlist
Heart of Venom - Jennifer Estep
Dark Heir - Faith Hunter
Magic in the Shadows - Devon Monk

I waitlisted these in anticipation of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon on April 28 — they came early.  Guess I'll have to get reading ...

 

Odd how all three have similarly colored covers.  I was just waitlist ing according to "next in series."
