Chance
Rescuing Rayne (Delta Force Heroes Book 1) - Susan Stoker

Keane AKA "Ghost" is on his way home when he meets the amazing and alluring Rayne.  The night they spend together is epic, to say the least.  Not knowing when or if they will see on another again is frustrating, but in Ghost's job - it really is better that way.

 

Rayne is totally and completely floored by the way she looks back on her night with Ghost.  He made such an impression on her, she still feels it.  When the worst happens, is him being there a good thing?

 

Completely impressed with the hot topics found in this book and how they are handled.  You feel the tension rise with each page.  Both in the romance, and in the suspense.  Gripping & compelling, this story will have you wishing you had time to read the whole series right now!  I found the characters charming, and the sexy times really HOT!  I cannot wait to read the next installment in the Delta Force Heroes series.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Silly fun
Army Of Darkness/Xena: Forever…And A Day #1 - Scott Lobdell,Elliot Fernandez

This review is for all 6 issues that make up the graphic novel.

 

I have to admit I knew nothing about Ash (or the Army of Darkness). I looked it up after I finished reading and at least that explained who Ash reminded me of. (Bruce Campbell)

This is a time travel story, and for a while there I was a tad confused as to what was going on. But it was fun trying to work out what was happening. Ash is a ladies man but he never got his leg over because he kept getting hauled back in time by Xena, who is trying to save herself and her girlfriend, Gabrielle, from a hoard of the undead.

 

The final reveal as to who is causing all the trouble is strange to say the least but by this point I was just hanging on for dear life and enjoying the ride.

 

Art style is great. Fun and bold.

 

Xena and Gabrielle are more side characters in this story. The comic (and most of the action) belongs to Ash.

Reading progress update: I've read 135 out of 496 pages.
The British Army and the First World War (Armies of the Great War) - Timothy Bowman,Mark Connelly,Ian F. W. Beckett

I'm three chapters in and so far I'm finding it very enlightening. I suspect that I'm not going to like the second half of the book as much, though, as in subsequent chapters the authors are going to transition away from descriptions of the composition and assemblage of the army to an account of their operations. Perhaps it's a consequence of having read Faulkner's Pershing's Crusade so recently, but I feel as though not covering the social history of the army in more detail is a missed opportunity.

Twell and the Army of Powers (Como Chronicles #1) by Kate O'Leary
Twell and the Army of Powers - Kate O'leary
Twell and the Army of Powers is the first book in the Como Chronicles. It gives us an in-depth view into the lives of those who live there, how their lives are regulated, what is forbidden, and what isn't. Twell is the main character, and the story is told from her perspective, and yet is still rounded out enough that you don't feel like you are missing out on anything.
 
Twell is a bit of a brat at the start of the book, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. Her character grows in ways unforeseen, by her own actions and by the 'gentle' advice from her friends. All of the characters have grit though, whether you like them or not. There is not a weak character amongst them, and they all grow and change throughout the book.
 
There is so much I want to say about this book, but won't in case of spoilers. Things happened that I never saw coming; my heart was broken on more than one occasion; it jumped into my mouth as I desperately held onto hope (even knowing that the author wouldn't make it so easy). The story is concise and gripping, thrilling and action-packed, ending on a cliffhanger that had me shouting out "NO!" even though I had already suspected the outcome!
 
This is a fantastic Young Adult Dystopian story with a dash of romance, that is guaranteed to enthral the reader. Absolutely recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

Book Tour: More Than a Soldier
More Than a Soldier: One Army Ranger's Daring Escape From the Nazis - Steve DiMarco,D.M. Annechino

More than a Soldier is a really good book about a soldier and his journey to survive. We meet Angelo first in a train car, with a few of his buddies and comrades. The story then goes back to when he signs up and what his family life is like. Will he make back to his battalion?

 

We get to follow Angelo and struggles through the military. We see how the Germans treat their prisoners and how rough life was behind enemy lines. The Germans are taking their prisoner through some extreme things.

 

The author did a wonderfully great job. With this being more of a Nonfiction book, It really told the story on each and every page. It was well written. Does the 1st Battalion survive or is Angelo the only survivor? You will want to read the book. You do get a somewhat of a tour of Italy.
