Shatter
Code Name: Hacker (Jameson Force Security, #4) - Sawyer Bennett

This is book #4, in the Jameson Force Security series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader to understand series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this fast paced series in order.

 

Briana Belle AKA "Bebe" has gotten a surprising second chance at life with her son.  Getting out of prison seemed like an impossibility.  Now she is in danger from her past and those whom she has never named when she was put away.  She has no idea until the first man she has been attracted to in such a long time comes along.

 

Griffin knows he must do a job.  Only the sparks he feels flowing between himself and the amazing Bebe are so new and amazing.  While he does not want his employer to start a killing spree with his name on it, he also does not want to harm a hair on her head.  Can they move on past the lies and the secrets?

 

Right from the very start this book was racing toward the finish line.  With enough action to be made into a movie, this series and especially this story suck you in and fulfill an action hero need.  Sexy with a good heat level that burns through the whole book, it still shows how a hard man can be tender.  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Little Fires Everywhere
Little Fires Everywhere - Celeste Ng

I don't know that I've read a book with a more appropriate title. That thought kept cropping up with every chapter read in this story.

The Symbolism of Ankh
Ama Dios: 9 AoL Consciousness Books Combined - Nataša Pantović Nuit

The Ankh

Symbols and Signs by Nataša Pantović

Ankh, loved and despised by many, have you ever wondered why... An ancient Egyptian  often drawn by our wise ancestors was the symbol used by priests and priestesses to represent resurrection and the holy spirit. Often interpreted as the word for "life", it traveled across the sees to many ancient civilizations and as the sign was used in the artwork of the Minoan civilization in Crete (Ancient Greece). Even the writing that Minoans used resembles ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The ankh continued to be used after the Christianization of Egypt during the 400 AD. The sign was used by early Christians as a monogram for Jesus

PANDEMONIUM by Luke Walker
Pandemonium - Luke Walker

PANDEMONIUM is a place, maybe not the capital of hell as it is in the epic Milton poem, but it's close!  Maybe it's more like Hotel California? Because once you check in, you never check out.

 

Hannah leaves work for the day, intent on getting home to care for her aging mother. Suddenly, a man walks up with a knife and bundles her into a van with even more men waiting inside. She is so surprised she barely has time to understand what's happening, never mind save herself. A few days and one failed escape attempt later they arrive at Pandemonium.

 

There, Hannah meets other men and women in the same situation and the story turns into something else altogether. Their leader, Monin,  loves them; he loves them with all of his heart. He is going to take care of them and all of their worries from the old world will disappear. And then, someone attempts to escape. Will they be successful? Will Hannah try to escape as well or will she be happy to remain there, free from the worries of work and family obligations? You'll have to read this to find out!  

 

 

It's difficult to describe this book-it's dark fiction/horror,(obviously), but I also got a kind of cosmic horror vibe, or closer to an "other worlds overlapping and/or coexisting with ours" situation. There's also a bit of a cult feel to it-in regards to Monin. Who is this guy, (is he even a guy? Or something other-wordly?) What does he want? This is where the mystery and suspense comes in. 

 

I have been reading Luke Walker's work for a while now and I have to say that it's these novels from him that I enjoy the most. By "these", I mean the ones with creative monsters,  horrible worlds, and truly evil people. I also enjoy his ability to create strong, believable women as protagonists in his books, and Hannah is definitely one of them. 

 

I enjoyed the creativity, the horror and the gore, (those rat-things skeeved me out!), and I especially liked Hannah and Piotr as characters. I liked trying to determine what was going to happen next and for all of these reasons: 

 

I recommend PANDEMONIUM!

 

Available tomorrow, but you can pre-order here: PANDEMONIUM
