Her Husband's Army Buddy (McLeod Security #1) by Doris O'Connor
Her Husband's Army Buddy (McLeod Security #1) - Doris O'Connor

Her Husband's Army Buddy is the first book in the McLeod Security series, and we meet the owner of the security business, Zane, and his wife, Sandy. Sandy and Zane have been married for 10 years, and are happy. That is until Sean shows up asking if there are any jobs going at Zane's security business. Sean and Zane have a history, and Sandy is worried that she will get kicked to the curb when they reignite their past together. Instead, it is Sandy who is able to bring the three of them together.

 

This is a fast-paced book, with plenty of steam. It gives a small introduction into the world of BDSM without going into too much detail. It is fairly low angst, although there is the usual stubbornness involved. It starts off the series well, and with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, I have no hesitation in recommending it.

 

* 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. *

Review: Genteel Secrets
Genteel Secrets - S.R. Mallery

Ever wonder what it would like to be a part of civil war or at the beginning of it. I have been interested in my own country’s battles and the war over slavery. That would be the Civil War that takes place in my America history.

 

I was have been born in the northern part of the civil war. Making me not have slaves. I would not be a slave owner. To me that owing other human beings is something which never happened. I am not one that ignore the fact that it happen though.

 

I would have let slaves be humans but that me. I know about my civil war in my American history. Genteel Secrets is about a woman that is forced to be a confederacy spy. It tell as story of someone that is against slavery but is born in the south and raised with slaves. It also tell the story of a Pinkerton detective.

 

The author does a good job portray what Washington and what some folk trying to help the south and some important events and people with helping the South win the Civil war. They seem to be against the government and Lincoln.

 

Will a northerner and Southern belle be able to survive and live a happy life? You will need to read to find out. If you are into American history this is also a good book to tell about south culture and a bit of the beginning of the Civil War.

Review: Army Of Darkness: Omnibus, Volume 1
Army of Darkness Omnibus Volume 1 - Robert Place Napton,Nick Bradshaw,Andy Hartnell,Ivan Raimi,Sam Raimi,James Kuhoric,Kevin Sharpe,Robert Kirkman,John Bolton,Sanford Greene

This was a beast!  It's broken into five sections and each one tells the story of Ash's shenanigans with the Necronomicon, deadites, Evil Ash and time travel.

 

 

This has been a treat to read!  It is full of time travel, Ash goobering up his one task to destroy the book over and over, fighting and endless deadite army, and multiple Evil Ashes.  He saves the girl, loses the girl, ends up in the wrong time, travels backwards and forwards in time, gets sucked into a computer game and fights the evil digital version of himself and deadite soldiers.  He travels back to the cabin where it all started, picks up [and loses] new allies, destroys the book on multiple occasions and still the Necronomicon finds a way back into his life every time.

 

The stories are amazing and the artwork is is phenomenal.  Part of what took me so long to finish it was me staring at the art.  Each section is done by different writers and illustrators, so that makes it that much more eye-grabbing noticing the differences in writing and art styles.  It's a must read for anyone who is a fan of Ash Williams and the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness series.

A flawed but useful survey of the French army in the First World War
Paths of Glory: The French Army 1914-18 - Anthony Clayton

Most English-language memoirs and histories of the First World War typically focus on and reflect the experiences of the British “Tommies” on the Western Front.  Such an approach often marginalizes the far more critical experience of the French army, which as Anthony Clayton argues diminishes their contribution to Allied victory in the conflict.  Clayton’s book is an attempt to rectify this.  In a succession of chapters he intersperses a operational narrative of the French army on the Western Front with descriptions of its commanders and their strategies, the soldiers and their equipment, and the challenges they faced in the four years of trench warfare.

 

All of this serves as an informative summary of the French military experience in the First World War, one that is enjoyably written and generally accessible for the interested reader.  Yet the book is not without its flaws.  Foremost is its predominant focus on the French military experience in northeastern France.  While understandable, Clayton takes this too far by reducing his examination of the army’s involvement on other fronts to a single chapter and generally ignoring the broader context of French politics and society.  Civilians are typically addressed only in terms of their direct interactions with the troops, while the heavily politicized world in which the French high command operated is treated often as background noise.  Such a narrow approach deprives his analysis of critical elements necessary for understanding the forces at work in the French army during this period.

 

Also problematic is Clayton’s handling of non-European troops fighting in the French ranks.  While acknowledging the presence of thousands of North African, Senegalese, and Indochinese soldiers, the author never gives them the attention he grants to conscripts from France itself, often offering little more than stereotyping claims of questionable veracity.  These beg for a reference to Clayton’s source, yet there are no footnotes or endnotes, only a bibliography of the sources used.  Such an omission minimizes the utility of the book, one that in the end leaves it to serve as a useful survey of the French army in the First World War and little more.
