Damn that was good
Down Among the Sticks and Bones - Seanan McGuire

This series has been a blast to read.  This is the story of the twins from the first book and could be read before or after the first.  They do stand alone but this explains some of what happens in Every Heart a Doorway.

 

Twins are brought up with rigid stereotypes and then they find a doorway to another world and discover that choices can be complicated.

 

I recommend this series.

 

Borrowed from Irish Public libraries

Good strong finish
Wonder Woman Vol. 6: Bones (The New 52) - Cliff Chiang,Goran Sudžuka,Brian Azzarello

This is the finish to the first storyline of Wonder Woman's in what was the New 52 universe of DC.

 

And it rocked.

 

For the best volumes (which is, I think roughly 20 issues), Wonder Woman has been trying to protect a mother and child.  She also found out that she is the daughter of Zeus, and has been made the God of War.

 

Also, the Firstborn wants to kill everything.

 

Part of the reason why I like this run is how the Greek gods are depicted.  Hera is a bitch but she has reason to be and she isn't a total villain.  Aphrodite is what you would think, if you pause to think about it.  It is just wonderful.

 

The struggle that Diana goes though are nicely wound up here.  No loose threads.  The twist is pretty good too.

Break No Bones
Break No Bones - Kathy Reichs

#9 Tempe Brennan

 

Tempe is tapped to lead a class for UNC in SC. She asks around and thinks she has found a good place to dig, but her team of students find a body. She calls her friend Emma, the county coroner, and is asked to help with the autopsy since it is mostly bones. She does and she finds out that her friend is terminally ill. She cares for her friend, helps with other body retrievals and autopsies, while dealing with her estranged husband, Pete, and her boyfriend from Canada, Ryan. 

 

The story was interesting and it was fun to hear some of the language from my days in college getting my degree.

Review: A Morbid Taste For Bones by Ellis Peters
A Morbid Taste for Bones - Ellis Peters

Title: A Morbid Taste For Bones
Author: Ellis Peters
Series: Brother Cadfael, #1
Format: paperback, bind-up
Length: ?

 

Synopsis:

In the remote Welsh mountain village of Gwytherin lies the grave of Saint Winifred. Now, in 1137, the ambitious head of Shrewsbury Abbey has decided to acquire the sacred remains for his Benedictine order. Native Welshman Brother Cadfael is sent on the expedition to translate and finds the rustic villagers of Gwytherin passionately divided by the Benedictine's offer for the saint's relics. Canny, wise, and all too wordly, he isn't surprised when this taste for bones leads to bloody murder.
The leading opponent to moving the grave has been shot dead with a mysterious arrow, and some say Winifred herself held the bow. Brother Cadfael knows a carnal hand did the killing. But he doesn't know that his plan to unearth a murderer may dig up a case of love and justice...where the wages of sin may be scandal or Cadfael's own ruin.

 

Favourite character: Cadfael
Least favourite character: Prior Robert
Favourite line: It’s a kind of arrogance to be so certain you’re past redemption.

 

Mini-review:

I loved this. It was so fascinating to read about medieval times, specifically monks, which I feel like aren’t talked about nearly enough. And Cadfael is so untypical, as he was a sailor and a soldier before becoming a Brother and I just loved the whole thing. My only thing is that because of the richness in detail and all that jazz it was really hard to get into, I didn’t get to the point where I was comfortable reading it until the murderer was revealed.
