Review Tour - Fireworks

 

Fireworks

by Sarina Bowen

 

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map.

 

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong? 

 

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

 

A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

 

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

 

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

 

Things are about to go boom.

Fireworks (True North, #6)Fireworks by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the True North series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, and too avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this compelling series in order.

Skye returns to the place she hates the most to help out the sister she always wanted. When she gets there, tables have turned. There is now danger if she pushes too far in finding her sister. Who can she turn to?

Benito AKA "Ben" is a blast from the past, who has always had a thing for Skye. She was the one that got away, and he has no intentions of letting that happen again. He also has to find her sister and solve his case.

While this author is a definite auto purchase, she always brings the goods to the table. In this story, we get a second chance romance with such heart and heat that every page is a sizzling delight! I loved the banter, and was eagerly turning each page to get to the next.

Before Alien 3, There Was The Comics...
Aliens - The Essential Comics Vol.1 - Mark Verheiden

When James Cameron's Aliens was released in 1986, it was a sequel nobody knew that its better than the first. It was different, it was action-oriented and science-fiction has become a whole other level of entertainment. Fans wanted more and before 20th Century Fox release Alien 3 in 1992, there was the comics. At the height of it all, the 1980s and the 1990s comics has found a new kind of voice and with this new voice, they found a different kind of audience. So when Dark Horse Comics acquire the rights to release the sequel to Aliens in comic format, fans were thrilled and the released of Aliens issue 1 of 6 in July 1st, 1988, it became an instant bestseller! The rest, is history.

 

I have been waiting for a collection that I wanted to get my hands on as I am an Aliens fan (shamefully, not the biggest) and I love most of what Aliens are. The comic books, on the other hand, another matter. After I missed out my chance to collect the omnibus editions (which I had heard the binding was bad), the re-released of Aliens for this edition was something I look forward to. Aliens: The Essential Comics Vol.1 collects the first three books (OutbreakNightmare Asylum & Earth War) that became the trilogy of the sequel that follows up from Aliens. Sadly, I was disappointed by its execution. The story is mediocre. It wasn't any thing mind-blowing nor explore much of the universe that started from Ripley Scotts vision based on a story by Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett. It was... boring. The first, which was Outbreak, had more words that can drive any comic book readers to become in a confuse state manner. There are too many things going around - a cult form over the alien sentient, a military corporation wanting the xenomorphs as a weapon, Newt (all grown up) felt abandoned and betrayed and lost and declared insane, Hicks, fueled with hatred against the aliens that killed his friends and a whole other supporting characters, which later made a mess of the whole arch. Then, the philosophy involvement of what truly happen that relates to the first movie, became a downfall to the first book.

 

The sequel, which was called then Book II (Nightmare Asylum) is no different. The approach is a little less whining but the content is no different with the exception of the return of Ripley. Remember, this was still before Alien 3. Then came the final arch story with Earth War, and every thing else, falls apart. It wasn't a good closure but it was a closure that marks Mark Verheiden ending his trilogy. Art wise, only Denis Beauvais is worth mentioning here. I didn't like Mark A. Nelson and Sam Keith art work at all.

 

The Essential Comics Volume 1 edition collects the first three books. The binding of the book is firm but its also easily creates a line at the bind. Paper quality wise is smooth. Its a book that's has its quality to savor for. Overall, I do like the cover and the universe of Aliens, even though the writing is terrible. This is truly a comic book trade paperback dedicated to fans who want more of Aliens.

Chasing Eva (In Light of Shadows) by Camellia Hart
Chasing Eva (In Light of Shadows Series Book 1) - Camellia Hart

 

 

Eva is a fierce adversary when pushed too far. Clive is a worthy opponent. When your heart is forced into battle with your head, what do you do? Chasing Eva is a smartly crafted war between mind and heart, body and soul, attraction and loathing. Camellia Hart makes it hard to choose between two overpowering forces. When falling in love, there's always a catch and the heart wants what it wants.
