Under a Blood-Red Moon (Duncan Andrews Thrillers #5) by Stephen Osborne
Under a Blood-red Moon (Duncan Andrews Thrillers Book 5) - Stephen P. Osborne

One of the best series I've ever read. 
By the looks of it, there is going to be a #6 and a good chance for a #7 =)

Best part, don't worry about gaps in between the books if you can't read them straight up. This one is so easy to remember. There is only a handful of characters and a simple universe where anything goes. If you manage to remember a (dead) Witch Council, 2.5 MCs (cause very prominent zombie dog for a pet) and 4 secondary characters, you are golden! Oh.... and Donald Drumpf Trump. He is a part of this book, and you just cannot forget THAT character, no matter how much you try.


yeah, now you know why I tagged this book "horror" and "humor" at the same time

5 stars.

PS I just want to mention: this series is urban fantasy at it's finest truest purest self. A major city, Indianapolis, to be precise, is housing all kind of magical creatures that human population is not aware of. A human detective along with his friends - a few humans with and without psy abilities and paranormal/magical creatures - battle the dark forces. It's not simply taking action in a city, it sticks to the tradition. An extra star just for that. And that makes it SIX

Community Service (Broken Mirrors #3) by Vaughn R. Demont
Community Service - Vaughn R. Demont
Some of my notes from Goodreads:
 
"Here we go again: info dumping and making things up on a fly (to add page count?) and reminiscing while everything is going to sh*ts. Why am still I reading this? @.O
Ah, right, challenge. And stupid notion that I must finish a book if I am past 75%."
 
 
"Omfg, stab me, stab! me! You don't frigging explain everything to your nemesis, you just KILL them! I swear my eyes are rolling all the way across *deh pond* right now!"
 
 
"This why I don't like present tense and cheap tricks horror books. You can't have a decent battle. The hero has to pause and reflect and both the hero the villain have to keep yapping at each other in the middle of life/death struggle. It's triple annoying! Maybe THAT is meant as horror? And damn if I am not tempted to dnf this bs at 80% :/"

Stygian by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

I have a bit of a problem with the characters. Maybe a couple.

I hate to say it, but Jeremy comes off as self-centered and whiny. I am not blaming him, he had lived through too much loss and pain, I get it. Yet the fact remains.

Everyone's either relative(s) or a friend or a lover is dead or a drunk or a punk or a weirdo. Throw me one undamaged person. Please. Because this is like reading a book where everyone is gay, even pets. Weird.

And one more thing: I don't find it creepy or scary, just overly dramatic. I was skipping paragraphs and - never thought I ever would, while reading SH - pages. 

3.5 stars. Since I really liked Hunter and his evil mindf*cking ways, I am rounding this up to 4.

PS I had no problem with the ending whatsoever. It was clear where things were going, I thought it was perfect. Another reason I rounded up, not down. I do hope for a sequel, just to see if Q got over his "sickness".

The Paranormal Detection Agency by Anne Brooke
The Paranormal Detection Agency - Anne Brooke

3.5 because of horror and long sex scenes, I find both boring (in general). Rounding up to 4, since it's not really anyone's problem but mine.

********

Not directly related to the book or BookLikes:

UPDATE: I sorted out the emails and fixed read count for this book, but I am leaving my rant where it is.

*
What The F, GoodReads? I have never read this book and yet it says I've read it twice already. I try and tinker with the dates and no matter what I do, it still counts for at least ONE PREVIOUS READ.

And what is it with e-mails telling me I finished a book I just finished. I KNOW I finished it. I READ IT. I MARKED IT ASREAD. I don't need to be informed via e-mail, too. 

Why won't GR fix community shelves instead? They are at dinosaurs' stage still!!! 

GAHHHH!!!!!

Dragon's Treasure by Qaida Harte
Dragon's Treasure - Qaida Harte

Warning: rape, torture, blood and gore. Not a pretty read for the first 40%.
