Surviving The Evacuation, Book 2: Wasteland - Frank Tayell
Thor - Wayne Smith

So, 9 books finished this month. Not enough for a blackout, but not bad for me.

 

Stand outs were:

A Halloween Tale by Austin Crawley

Terror on the Tundra by J. Esker Millar

Wasteland by Frank Tayell

 

Honorable mention to I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.

 

I didn't hate any of this month's reads, so yay!

 

I now have a few Netgalley books to catch up and a gazillion samples I've been ignoring, so that's November sewn up.

Thor
Thor - Wayne Smith

by Wayne Smith

 

This is an original take on a werewolf story. It's told partly from the pov of a German Shepherd dog who belongs to a typicaltm American family. The father is a lawyer, the mother appears to be a housewife and there are three children. They all love their dog and he loves them and instinctively protects them, referring to them as "The Pack".

 

Sometimes he protects too well and gets in trouble with Dad. It's interesting looking at things through his eyes. The author seems to know a lot about dogs and his perspectives come over as fairly realistic. The first few chapters of this would make a nice, wholesome dog story if it weren't for the intimate moments between Mom and Dad getting a bit too graphic for very young readers.

 

When Thor senses an unknown danger coming and starts to catch the scent of an unidentified wild animal in places and on belongings associated with a relative of The Pack, we see his confusion as he tries to work out where the threat is coming from and how to protect his family.

 

Some dramatic werewolf action happens in the last quarter that had me breathless. It was very well done! Though a couple of challenges to belief (besides, you know, werewolf) kept it from quite reaching that fourth star.

 

Still, a worthwhile story and watching the change in consciousness in one transition to werewolf was more than intriguing.

Favourite character: Maddy
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: I loved what a flirt Amadeus was. You don't see that often in nerds. Reminded me of Howard (who is my favourite character) from Big Bang Theory. But back to the comics. I'm not sure how I felt about the overall plot. It probably would've helped if I had done my Hulk homework. But I didn't. Oops.

Synopsis: The legend continues with Thors new and old! Loki spins a special ages-old tale of a young Odinson in action against a hulking great enemy. You wouldn’t like this Viking when he’s angry! But what incredible impact will this yarn from the past have on the present?

But if Roxxon and the rest aren’t enough trouble, Jane Foster must contend with a new enemy: S.H.I.E.L.D.! Whose side will Agent Roz Solomon be on? Worse still, somehow millions of lives will depend on the God of Thunder saving Roxxon’s evil executive, Dario Agger! All this and…the Exterminatrix and the Silver Samurai?!

 

Favourite character: Thor
Least favourite character: the Midas chick

 

Mini-review: Good. Got to meet some new characters, like Silver Samurai and the Midas chick. Can't wait to find out more about Mjölnir. Also so glad Legolas showed up cosplaying as Will Turner.
