Interesting so far, read two of six stories.
Rogue Hearts - Kelly Maher,Suleikha Snyder,Emma Barry,Stacey Agdern,Amy Jo Cousins,Tamsen Parker

This is a collection of stories, and I have not finished all of them yet.
In Her Service - Suleika Snyder - This is a quick read and a little short for me. I wanted to know more detail about Letty and Shahzad. Their love already existed at the beginning of the story, but I loved his loyalty and devotion to Letty. I also enjoyed how they disregarded others opinions considering they were in the public eye.
Run - Emma Barry - Both Maddie and Adam are strong characters. I loved Maddie's honesty, commitment, and steadfastness. I felt for his indecision because of his past experiences.

Fantastic
Meet A Rogue At Midnight (Midnight Meetings Book 4) - Gina Conkle

Meet A Rogue At Midnight by Gina Conkle is a fairly short historical romance, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Conkle has delivered a well-written book.  Jonas is visiting his grandfather.  Olivia is trying to do her father's work before everyone knows how sick he is.  Their story is loaded with drama, humor and sexy bits.  I enjoyed reading Meet A Rogue At Midnight and look forward to reading more from Gina Conkle in the future.  Meet A Rogue At Midnight is book 4 of the Midnight Meetings Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

An entertaining sci-fi adventure in a series that ended before it could begin
Rogue Emperor (Chronoplane Wars, No. 3) - Crawford Kilian

Jerry Pierce, a leading Trainable with the Agency for Intertemporal Development in the 21st century, is watching the gladiatorial battles in an alternate Roman empire of the 1st century AD when he witnesses the anachronistic assassination of the emperor Domitian by anti-tank missile. Though suffering from the prolonged effects of his conditioning, he agrees to go undercover to discover the identity of the assassins. With the aid of a recently recruited local, he soon discovers the elite Praetorian Guard have been Christianized by a group of religious fanatics from his own timeline, who conspire to make their leader the next Roman emperor. Successfully infiltrating their ranks, he must collect intelligence and sabotage their plans, all while maintaining his cover and dealing with the increasingly painful consequences of his extended conditioning – a daunting challenge for even a top agent of the AID.

 

Crawford Kilian’s third and final entry in his “Chronoplane Wars” trilogy differs considerably from the first two books. Whereas and its prequel focused on describing the main character of his series within the context of a world facing doomsdays of various stripes, this final book shows him as an AID agent on a mission unrelated to the broader challenges of his assignments. The result is an effective sci-fi thriller, albeit one that left me wondering if Killian ever had any regrets about this series. It's pretty clear that while his first book, Empire of Time, was intended as a stand-alone novel, the premise of alternate worlds policed by an authoritarian future was clearly too rich to remain unexplored. Yet resolving the question of Earth's destruction (the big mystery which drove the establishment of the alternate-worlds empire) seems to have left Killian bereft of stores that lived up to the original. It's a real shame, too, considering the series-driven trend in modern science fiction today, as Killian's premise allowed for a vast range of directions in which he could have gone. Instead we are left with this final novel that shows the possibility of what could have been had Killian not started with the end unintentionally.

The conclusion of a totally O.K. follow-up to the Lunar Chronicles
Wires and Nerve, Volume 2: Gone Rogue - Marissa Meyer,Douglas Holgate,Stephen Gilpin

I'm really not sure what to say about this one. It's part two of the story begun in <b>Wires and Nerve</b> where Iko is tasked with hunting down rogue Lunar wolf warriors scattered over the Earth. We also see what reforms Cinder is bringing to the Lunar government and what happens to the rest of the main characters from <b>The Lunar Chronicles</b> following <b>Winter</b>.

 

Honestly, I think I'm going to just copy and paste from the last book, because this is really just part 2 of that same story and my comments stay the same:

 

The Lunar wolf warriors are not just going to roll over, there are some that are preparing to strike back against Iko -- and Cinder.

 

Throw in a love story, an examination of Iko's true nature, and some nice catch-up with our old friends, and you've got yourself a fun story. It's fun, but it's light. If it were prose instead of a graphic novel, it might take 40 pages to tell this story. Which doesn't make it bad, just slight.

 

I was shocked to see a different artist credited with this one -- maybe my memory is shakier than I realized, but man...I thought it was the same stuff. Gilpin did a great job keeping the look the same. Yeah, cartoonish -- but it fits the story. It's dynamic, eye catching and fun -- just what Iko's story should be.

 

I'm glad I read these two, but I hope Meyer walks away from this world now to focus on whatever's next. Read this if you read the first. If you're curious about what happens after <b>Winter</b>, these two are a fun way to scratch that itch, but totally unessential.
