Actually, this is just a fraction of my library book pile, but they are the ones that I'm going to concentrate on for the next week or so.
Three of them have holds on them, so they can't be renewed--Birding Without Borders, Dear Fahrenheit 451, and The Shoe on the Roof. The subject matter of the three couldn't be more different, so it should be an interesting week.
Now I Rise is the second book in The Conqueror's Saga. The first book, And I Darken, is the book for April in my real-life book club. I read that one last year, so I'm going to forge ahead into the second book before our meet up on April 6.
It seems appropriate to read Stephen Hawking's autobiography, My Brief History, to celebrate the great man's life.
And Gap Into Vision : Forbidden Knowledge is the next up in my Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Project. I'm glad to have finally found a series by Stephen R. Donaldson that I actually kind of like.
This one has a few card possibilities, and I've read enough of James White's books that I figured this would be at least an okay read. But so far I've only read his Sector General books, which only include one named definitely-female recurring character, and even in those books it was clear that White has issues with writing women.
This is my first non-Sector General book by him, and four pages in there have been two women. One's a mother who is shapely and pretty (the main character is entranced), and one's wearing an outfit with a description that confuses me but that definitely boils down to "she's wearing practically nothing."
I'm not sure I'm in the mood to tackle this right now, so I might switch to something else. And I need to remember to read the first few pages of whatever replacement options I look at, even if they're by authors I've read before...
Gavin was a PI who had been a Seattle cop before he was a PI. He was also an artic shift shaping wolf. He and his fellow PIS had been bitten and turned. Gavin hated flying as he had been in an airplane crash when he had traded places with a very pregnant woman and had been taken hostage at a jewel heist. But Gavin had to sometimes fly for a case. Eleanor Dylon was a cosmetic heiress and she says she is sure her husband is cheating on her but he has to be caught so she could start a divorce and keep all her inheritance. Her husband Conrad was going on a company canoe trip and all provisions were being provided. So Gavin had to fly in and catch Gavin . Gavin and his fellow PI’s had a thriving business going. Eleanor said gavin had to be the one to take this case as she had looked into him and said gavin had an outstanding track record. Gavin’s pilot ended up being Amelia as her father had to take out a different group. Then the plane malfunctioned and crashed. But before it sank they got out and some provision even a big Saint Bernard pup. Gavin couldn’t believe he had been in a second plane crash. Then he realized why the other woman looked so familiar as she was the one flying the plane in the first crash. Gavin doubted Amelia but she also doubted him but soon they believed each other. Gavin also found out Amelia was white arctic wolf and was born a shape shifter and was called royal as was her family. There was a strong attraction between Amelia and gavin. Soon Amelia said she would be Gavin’s P I assistant.
Excellent book and I loved it. I loved the plot and the pace and the paranormal part and didn’t want to put this down. This kept my attention form the first page until the last. I loved Amelia and gavin together . I felt this was a well written white arctic wolf romance with just enough intrigue and drama added to it. I love Terry Spears novels and this one didn’t disappoint. I hope to read many more. I loved the characters and the twists and turns in this book and I highly recommend.
