The Trench (Meg 2)
The Trench - Steve Alten

This was almost as good as the first. My only complaint is the repetition of facts we already know. Probably 3 times, we are reminded about thermoclines, several times we are told the same facts about the Mariana Tench, and then constantly about the accident that happened in Meg Origins. Constantly. We get it. We know all this. 

 

There's also the exposition thing. It found some sort of lazy ways to explain things, and it goes way over the top. We even have a villain monologue that explained his entire plot.

 

But besides this, I really enjoyed the fast paced plot. Poor Jonas is going to be in therapy for the rest of his life.

The Meg
Meg - Steve Alten

This was going to be a 5 star rating, but the book needed editing. There were a few grammatical errors that were easy to spot. Also took half a star for the misogyny. It didn't bother me too much because it was military guys being that way, and that's just the nature of them. My husband tells me stories of his buddies that would make my skin crawl if I knew it wasn't a joke.

 

Anyway, the plot was fast paced, the characters varied, and the settings well described. My recommendation is to not read Meg: Origins first, even though it's in the front of the book. Read the actual novel then go back and read the prequel. It gives things more suspense.

I am not okay
Saga Volume 9 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

I am grieving. Comics shouldn't make you grieve.

 

 

And I can't even find out what's going to happen because Saga is on hiatus!

Power of the Dark Crystal v3
Jim Henson's The Power of the Dark Crystal Volume 3 - Phillip Kennedy Johnson,Nichole Matthews,Kelly Matthews,Simon Spurrier

What a great way to finish the series! I hate that it's over. The art was fantastic, and the plot was so perfect. I am so happy this script was finally put out into the world in some form.

AVP: Prey
Prey - Steve Perry,Stephani Perry

This was a surprising gem. When you read these movie tie-in's, they can be hit or miss. And I have read some really bad ones, especially in the Aliens fandom. But wow, this was fun. I definitely see where they took some of their inspiration for the first AVP movie. The strong female lead, the warrior predator, the queen battle, the Blooding. As much as I enjoyed the movie, this book would have made for a much better story.
