Chest Of Bone
Chest of Bone (The Afterworld Chronicles Book 1) - Vicki Stiefel

Sometimes you're reading a novel and you're 30% through it and only then realize that you still don't have a clue about what the book is about. That happened to me with Chest of Bone.

I expected something more of a fantasy novel, but it was more or less a murder mystery with some fantasy elements thrown into it. This is not necessarily a bad thing of course, as I certainly like my murder mysteries from time to time. However, the writing was also quite strange. I can't really explain it but felt different, and I think it was one of the reasons why I couldn't get into the story for a long time.

The story itself was quite interesting (mostly the part about the 'exotic' food) but the main ideas have been done before, a number of times. The jury is still out whether or not to continue with this series in the future.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Afterworld (Orion Rezner Chronicles, #1) - Michael James Ploof

~~~Not A Strong 4 Stars but Def. Worth More Than 3~~~

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. That being said, this book was a whole lot of fun! It promised a cornucopia of creatures including: Vampires, Werewolves, Shape Shifters, Ghosts, Witches/Warlocks, various survivors of the virus that wiped out 99% of the population named Witnesses, Elites and Cain along with Priests exhibiting extraordinary powers, Demons and last but certainly not least a bad a$$ snarky monkey named Dude. For the most part it delivers though we never get to meet the Vamps, Werewolves, Shape Shifters and Elites in book #1. Still this post apocalyptic book is action packed and chock full of references to 80's and 90's pop culture (both witty and  dated) which could have easily backfired. There were some words left out here and there but the quick paced/easy flow made up for whatever editing problems I ran across. The character development and world building were good but nothing groundbreaking though it definitely provided an excellent foundation for what I believe will turn out to be a VERY entertaining series.
