Book Tour: Curse of the Ancients by Hawk MacKinney
Curse of the Ancients - Hawk MacKinney

If you wanted to travel to the Middle East or at least a part of it. You do so though Hawk McKinney latest book "The Curse of Ancients". To me it get adventurous and involves mysteries though out the book. I also believe it got some real good crime and detective in the book.

We meet up with Craige Ingram once again, and one of his best friend McGarald. Craige is ask to come and look and be a part of the investigation and find out what going on and finding out. The action be hotter and intense.

Craige bring in another friend from his seal team. When, his home is being threaten and get him and his friend involved some more. They will not back down until they find the answers.
Are terrorists involved and who or what is going on that leaving agents dead? Hawk McKinney does this and pull you in for adventure and battle. Who will win? The book is a page turner and surprises though out. Who would want artifacts and why?

The Secret Library: A Book-Lovers' Journey Through Curiosities of History
The Secret Library - Oliver Tearle

This started off super-slow for me for the same reason any overview of history does:  it starts with ancient history.  I know it's important.  I know it influences just about everything today, but it's, forgive me, a bit dull.  

 

Once we got through The Classical World and the Middle Ages though, things picked up.  For each age, Tearle selects a few texts that can, or should, be considered significant.  Some of them are the no-brainers we've all heard of (Shakespeare) and some are names or titles that have unjustly fallen into oblivion (Mary Elizabeth Braddon, whom he argues might be the author of the first English detective novel. Trail of the Serpent).  Whether widely known or not, Tearle tries to focus on thoughts, ideas, or facts that aren't widely known so that there's something new here for likely anyone, no matter how well read.

 

Informative, readable, and once past the Middle ages, very enjoyable.

The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and Peoples Temple - Jeff Guinn

I will never understand quite a few things, but today, ( or lately),  the main one on my mind is the cult mentality. This doesn't only apply to organized cults, but to some churches and/or religions as well.

 

The church cult of Scientology, for instance, has fascinated me for a long while. Same thing with Charles Manson, and now: Jim Jones. Is it the charisma of their leaders? Did they start out "good", (for lack of a better descriptor), and then turn "bad", or were they bad deep down at the core to start with? 

 

My interest doesn't just stop with these "leaders", but also the people attracted to them. What draws people in? Many of these folks are not stupid, in fact some, if not many of them, are well educated. Are they missing something in their lives? Are they  missing something in themselves?

 

I watch/listen/read to/or about people drawn into these types of things, but I still can't figure it out. Why can't they see when things start to go wrong, or when things don't make sense? Why don't they rebel when asked to kill someone, or asked to commit suicide? 

 

I guess the answers to these questions would be quite valuable if we could answer them, wouldn't they?

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Frost and Starlight - Sarah J. Maas

 

 

Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve.

Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court

 

 

 

 

Most people who follow my reviews know that I LOVE Sarah J Maas and that she can do no wrong to me …. Or so I thought. I was really looking forward to this book since I was in a desperate need of my Rhysand fix.

Of course, once I got the book, I dove right into but quickly realized it is not the same. It was pretty slow and kind of boring as we pretty much follow Rhysand, Feyre and gang follow as they prepare for the Winter Solstice and recalling time since we left them in the last book.  The book felt a bit forced to me, too many thing to little time but mostly forced and r rushed I can’t really decided but I think a bit both.

Also I didn’t really like that it switched POV from first to third person. We get Rhysand and Feye in first person and Cassian and Mor in third person, which kind of interrupted the flow of the book for me. But that is maybe just me and most people don’t mind it. 

The book did pick up and we did get plenty of Rhys and Feyre smexy time and a good amount of out favorite fae lord lol.

Overall, I enjoyed it plenty just not as much as I thought I would.

I rate it 3★ and I’m really looking forward to the next main/spin-off book.
