The Iron Duke - My Thoughts
The Iron Duke - Meljean Brook

A rather enjoyable read, even if it was at times a tad ridiculous.

The only way I think I could have enjoyed this more is if some sections (not many) were rewritten in a less confusing manner, this includes some characters I found impossible to keep track of. The 2nd thing being the main male character was a pretty big douche, if he had been more likable I might have rated this book higher. Still kudos to Brook because in the end I was rooting for him and Mina, so I obviously started liking him somewhere throughout the book. Credit for this is mainly because Mina liked him and the chick is pretty amazing, and partly because he admired her for her intelligence and wit above everything else. So he was a complete unlikable monster. Plus I'll admit the banter between the two MC's was hilarious, without going into dimwit land, which I appreciate. I'm glad there were 2 POVs otherwise I don't think this story could have been pulled off with just one. Although I could have lived without the chapter worth of sex scene's, good on you guys for discovering your genitalia, the rest of us don't need to be as invested in it as you guys are.

Overall an entertaining read. The world, politics, bugger concerns, plus the female MC made this book. I am a little confused about what an actual Horde looks like, and at the beginning of the book I was beyond lost when referencing to buggers and Hordes but soon enough I was fascinated by the unusual world, their strange hierarchy and found myself quickly immersed within the pages.

Highly anticipating book 2!

Much better than Butcher's other work
The Aeronaut's Windlass - Jim Butcher

I rather enjoyed this book, I'm not going to say it was perfect or had no holes - cause it had a tone! but non the less I enjoyed flying through the sky and tracking down the baddies with the rest of the crew, enough to rate this book 4 stars. I even looked forward to all the POV changes, as each character was a blast.

Some issue's I had:
- The cover doesn't fit the book. Who is it? logically Grim would make the most sense but this man is too young to be Grim. Even though it's confusing I do still adore it.
- Characters sounded very similar from one POV to another.
- Bad guy was bad just for the sake of being bad...well in this case because they where insane, but still, from what i read there really was no reason for them to go so evil.
(there were more, but I can't recall them now)
