The Poacher's Son
The Poacher's Son - Paul Doiron

Mike Bowditch is a young game warden and also the son of a poacher. He hadn't seen his dad for two years when he got a message from him on his answering machine. Later that day he learns that two men, one a police officer, were gunned down after a heated public meeting in the same area where his dad lives. Then, he gets word that his dad has been arrested and may be charged for the crime. He decides to put his job on the line and go help his dad. His dad is a brawler and has known his fair share of trouble with the law but Mike doesn't believe he would kill someone, especially a police officer.

 

This story is different than the books I usually read in that it is set in the forests of Maine. I was interested in the story but it is definitely slower paced than what I am used to. At one point it almost lost me but I ended up getting hooked into the story. I couldn't be sure which way the story would end. Afterward, I found myself thinking about different details still. I enjoyed the descriptions of the area and can imagine how peaceful it would be even though I've never been there. I think it was a nice change from the usual crime mystery and I'm going to get the next book in this series and see what happens next.

Deer Life - Ron Sexsmith

Leaves in the whirlwind, scarecrow’s clappin’
All good children ought to be nappin’.
The cows in the tree, the bird’s on the ground
For your dream’s just a nightmare upside down.

 

This is a fun & light hearted fairy tale written by singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith. The story is set in the town of Hinthoven, a bustling little village full of eccentric characters. Let’s see…we’ve got barkeep Crad Grimsby, local bully Jacques Tortière, bouncers Griff & Gruff & young Deryn Hedlight, the hero of our tale.

 

While out hunting one day Deryn has the great misfortune to run into Eleanoir, as wicked a witch as there ever was. (How do we know she’s a witch? C’mon people, she’s got purple eyes! Everyone knows the worst witches have purple eyes…sheesh.)

 

Poor Deryn. HIs life takes an extreme 180 & the story that follows is full of peril (PERIL!!), heartache, magic & the enduring power of love. The cover is gorgeous & sprinkled through the pages are little hand drawn sketches of the characters. Despite this being billed as an adult fairy tale, I think it’s better suited for kids. The chatty narrator speaks directly to the reader as they deliver a mystical & humorous coming-of-age story that is clean & full of good messages about the importance of friendship, whether it comes into your life on two legs or four.

 

So if you go out to the woods today, beware of those with a viole(n)t gaze. And bowler hats…..definitely avoid bowler hats.

Monster Boy Angst!
This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity) - Victoria Schwab

I couldn't put this book down. This is one of the best books I've read in quite a while!

I really really enjoyed this read! Monster boy angst is my favorite type of prose. And the conflicting emotions about being human or monster is always fun!

The cast of characters are very well written and well thought out, August Flynn is a horrible monster, in other words he's just bad at his job. Which is pitiful in an endearing way. And Kate Harker is the type of person I'd like to be calculating, intelligent and won't let anyone get me down, even if i have to break their arm.


I'm definitely going to pick up more books from Victoria Schwab, and Pre-order the Second book in the series!

(Sorry this review is all over the place I'm running on six hours of sleep in the last 72 hours so i'm kind of not all there. And I'm unable to sleep due to mental issues)
