Blood & Thunder - Charlie Cochet

Blood & Thunder - Charlie Cochet 

I'm in love with this author's style and sense of humour, seriously, she gets me completely hooked on her words. But, fuck, I hate her final chapters. Two books same reaction...

And just to be fussy, here Dex tends too much to be a Mary Sue, while Sloane is totally bipolar.

Hell on Earth (Hellscape) - Ally Blue

Hell on Earth (Hellscape) - Ally Blue

Very good action and setting. I would have preferred that the romantic part was less fluffy and at the end I would have been less accommodating with Jael & co. I continue to believe that the words used by this author to describe certain sex scenes are strange, bordering on the ridiculous. 

 

P.S. The book's cover has nothing to do with the story.

Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1) - Charlie Cochet

Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1) - Charlie Cochet 

This book is like an action flick that offers a nice plot, fun characters (I love Dex) and an original idea of the shapeshifters' genre (that I have particularly appreciated). It's great until a few chapters from the end, then everyone becomes an incompetent moron and my enthusiasm was considerably dampened.

Three stars because it's a feel good story. But this series has an urgent need for a wind-up.

Strain - Amelia C. Gormley

Strain - Amelia C. Gormley 

 

So, this book deserves 5 stars for the attention to detail. Setting, scientific explanations, military operations, as far as I'm concerned, are more orgasmic than the repetitive sex scenes. Even the mistakes made are then recognized as such, making the apocalyptic aspect of the book very delightful.
Instead, what I don't appreciate at all is how Father Maurice and Jacob have been characterized like the wicked stepmother and the stepsister. Stereotypes such as these need to stay the fuck away from my dystopias (to be badass dystopias).
Finally, we have Rhys. A nice character, but the story of "I do not want to want" is tremendously dragged. If Strain is not followed soon by another book with Rhys' growth and much (muuuuch) more action, the psychological part (read mental masturbation) is disproportionate to the rest and all the good things above will be sadly wasted.


In a nutshell: This book is like the second season of The Walking Dead.
