Surprise
Navy SEAL to the Rescue (Aegis Security #1) - Tawny Weber

Travis “Hawk” Hawkins finds himself rescuing a damsel in distress.  Only real problem?  She takes her time in realizing she really is in distress.  Bigger problem? The heavy attraction between them that is getting hotter.......

 

Lila is not sure which is worse.  Having family that bosses her around and does not respect her or her ambitions, or meeting a man thousands of miles from home who seems just like them that she is enormously attracted to.  Maybe it really is a bit of both.  He just keeps turning out to be the good guy.

 

This was an incredible story right form the get go.  I was seriously stuck inside the book and had a hard time putting it down.  Each page brings more to the adventure, and even more sexy heat.  These characters are a treat to read.  I sure hope we visit them again.  What a great start to the new Aegis Security series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Oops! Too engrossed to...
A Beautiful Friendship - David Weber

...remember I was reading this for a book club.  I should have been discussing frequently here on the dashboard.  I should be writing a good review.

 

Instead, I wolfed through this one, then book two and then immediately book three.

 

I did want more in the Honor-verse.  I hesitated to start this before was a bookclub because I wasn't confident author could write for YA.  

 

I was wrong; he did very well with YA.  Excellent book, but possibly a bit lacking in some ... not sure "tension" is the correct word.  Everything wasn't breezy and light; a few very possibly serious things just seemed a bit easily resolved with the M.C. often just that much smarter than others.  Most places that worked well; just enough off that it's not quite a five star read for me.

 

Boy did I ever want to read this early backstory of the treecat world!

A Beautiful Friendship
A Beautiful Friendship - David Weber,Khristine Hvam This is Young Adult Sci Fi set on a frontier planet in the far future with a girl-meets-treecat first contact theme.

The split view from human to alien and back was well handled, the action scenes are dramatic and pack an emotional punch and the whole thing is carried along by the excellent performance from Khristine Hyam.

The book kept my attention and some scenes were very powerful but I don't think it fully delivered as a novel. I felt as though I'd had the first three or four episodes of the first season of a promising show and then the thing had been taken off air.

Still, I enjoyed the read and I've bought book two to see where David Weber takes his ideas and his characters

1066 Graphic Novel
1066: Guillaume Le Conquérant - Patrick Weber,Emanuele Tenderini

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley

 

                In terms of history, this is spot on.  It would help if you are familiar with the general events surrounding the 1066 invasion as well as the politics leading up to it. 

                I mean, Weber remembers the women.  So, you have Harold, Edward, and William.  But you have Edith and Mathilda among others. 

                The one problem is that too many of the men are drawn too much alike, so I had to flip back and forth a couple times.  Still, this is a good, solid comic history of the events.  In particular, while it does have nudity and blood (quite a bit of blood), it would be a fitting read for a younger student of history.
