Justice (Moon Hunters Inc. #1) by Catty Diva Review
Justice (Moon Hunters Inc. Book 1) - Catty Diva,Jesh Art,Addicted to Reviews Editing

When did the good guys get so bad?


Justice comes on swift wings in the dark. His friend and boss Cash has sent him to Earth to exterminate a criminal convicted on Oison and protected by the corrupt Earth government. While carrying out the judgement, he finds her.


Envy is a pet kept by her evil master. Luckily he's old and incapable of breeding so she is still innocent in many ways. Justice has come to make her master pay for his misdeeds. Can she convince him to free her so she can live life on her terms? Will the handsome assassin accept her innocence as a payment for her freedom or will he demand her heart as well?

Review

 

 

This wasn't badly written but I just could never settle into it. The bad guys were awful and the act of leaving one to take care of later just made me wince.

 

The overwhelmed with lust on the part of the hero was pretty lame in such a moment of assignation as well. So, nope, did not work for me.

GREAT INTRODUCTION TO THESE CHARACTERS
Justice, Inc. Volume 1 - Giovanni Timpano,Michael Uslan,Alex Ross

This one is a pulp fiction lovers fantasy, starring Doc Savage, The Shadow, and The Avenger. All classic heroes from that bygone era when pulp ruled the magazine stands across America.

For those unfamiliar with each of these guys, let us stop for a moment and take a closer look.

Doc Savage is Clark Savage, Jr., whose father used science to train him to have superhuman abilities, such as greater strength, longer endurance and a photographic memory. This tutoring has also resulted in him being gifted at numerous skills; Doc is an accomplished musician, a martial arts master, a speech mimicker, a master of disguise, a physician, a scientist, and an inventor. But at heart, this prodigy’s view of life can be summed up by his oath: “Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, that all may profit by it. Let me think of the right and lend all my assistance to those who need it, with no regard for anything but justice. Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage. Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens and my associates in everything I say and do. Let me do right to all, and wrong no man.

On the other hand, The Shadow is the mysterious vigilante persona of one Kent Allard, a famous World War I aviator. After the war, Allard decides to fake his own death, then return to New York City to fight underworld criminals by their own means: intimidation and brutality. Thereafter, he uses numerous fake identities, but his most useful is that of Lamont Cranston, a “wealthy man about town” who tends to travel the world. While Cranston is away, The Shadow impersonates him, living Lamont Cranston’s life and using his resources to wage an endless war against those who would do innocent people harm.

The last member of our trio is Richard Henry Benson. This globe-trotting adventurer has spent his life traveling the world, accumulating millions before returning home to America to settle down and have a family. As this comic collection begins, Richard Benson has not yet assumed the mantel of the Avenger.

Naturally, it takes a huge crisis to get these guys together. Such an event happens in the present day, where an older Doc Savage cannot keep his greatest scientific experiment from going horribly wrong. Instead of harnessing time itself for the benefit of mankind, a disruption in time occurs, leading to circumstances that place the key to saving time in the hands of Doc Savage’s younger self in 1939.

From this beginning, Michael Uslan presents a fast-paced story that quickly throws the three main characters together. There are brief glimpses of their pasts, quick explorations of their personalities, but this story mainly stays the course as an epic struggle to discover who is trying to destroy time itself and stop them.

One of the things that I really enjoyed about this collection was the artwork. Giovanni Timpanos’ style was crisp, clean, and smooth. He didn’t try to be over-the-top, in-your-face, or any other euphemisms such as that. Nope, he gave this team-up comic an old school feel that fit not only the characters but the story as well, because Uslan’s plot is a classic pulp fiction tale that focused on archetype villains, world-spanning conspiracies, and heroes who are not as flashy as Superman, Batman, Hulk, Wolverine, or any other modern superheroes.

As for the story itself, it is a pulp fiction romp.

Does that mean Justice, Inc. is going to knock your socks off?

Probably not. It is definitely a solid read though. And it does have more than enough fights, drama, historical guest stars, and laughs to keep a reader entertained. But what Justice, Inc. does a brilliant job of, however, is introducing these iconic pulp characters to a new generation, and doing so in such a manner that future creative teams can build upon this solid foundation to craft Doc Savage, The Shadow, and The Avenger stories for years to come. And for that reason, this is a collection I’d recommend to anyone.

I received this book from Netgalley and Dynamite Entertainment in exchange for a fair and honest review. I’d like to thank both of them for allowing me to receive this review copy and inform everyone that the review you have read is my opinion alone.

Navy SEAL Justice - Elle James (HI #1566 - May 2015)
Navy SEAL Justice (Covert Cowboys, Inc.) - Elle James

Series: Covert Cowboys Inc. (Book 5)

FBI agent Melissa Bradley is used to cryptic assignments like this: retrieve package from PO Box and deliver to old friend. Package in hand, she's attacked by thugs -- and she's not about to trust the tall, dark and dangerous rescuer who claims he was sent to protect her. A former navy SEAL turned cowboy suddenly reinstated as a SEAL, there's clearly more to James Monahan's covert op than he'll admit. When their mutual friend goes missing, they join forces deep in the swamplands of southern Mississippi to find him. But as a dangerous band of traitors, terrorists and killers close in, survival means trusting each other -- their toughest mission yet.

 

Very good book, with action that kept me hooked from the beginning. Both Melissa and James got messages from their friend Cord, asking for their help. He asked Melissa to pick up a package at the post office and bring it to him at a local bar. James was asked to watch out for her because Cord suspected that she might be in danger because of it. Thanks to Cord's call, James was there to help Melissa when she was attacked by thugs. The escape was exciting, and the initial interactions between Melissa and James were pretty funny. Melissa is a tough FBI agent, well able to take care of herself, and she has no trouble telling him so. But when they discover that Cord is missing, they decide that working together is the best way to find him.

 

James had been a navy SEAL before he left the service to take care of his dying father. After his passing, James went to work for Covert Cowboys Inc, and had just started when he got the call from Cord. Fortunately this sort of problem is right up their alley, and his boss pulls some strings to get James reassigned to his old SEAL team, where he can investigate more easily. His inner protector wants to keep Melissa out of the investigation and safe, but realistically he knows that's not possible.

 

I loved the interactions between them. Both are smart and determined and quite stubborn when circumstances call for it. They were also surprised by the attraction that flared up between them. Melissa is wary of it because she had been burned in relationships before, by men who couldn't handle her being an FBI agent. Trust builds very quickly between them as they work together, and that trust opens the door to other feelings. I liked the end where they decided they wanted to get to know each other better, rather than declaring instant love. It was a pretty sweet scene in the hospital room too.

 

The suspense and action of the story had me riveted to the end. The questions about what had gone wrong on the mission that sent Cord looking for answers, and then his disappearance, were the basis of the story. James and Melissa made a great team as each of them used their strengths to ferret out information. The intensity of the danger kept going up as the bad guys tried to stop them. The final confrontation was pretty gripping as James, with the help of the team, raced to save Melissa. I really loved seeing that she had a big part in saving herself. Part of the mystery has been solved, but there are still questions about who is behind it all. I'm looking forward to the next book to see if they are answered.

Navy SEAL Justice by Elle James
Navy SEAL Justice (Covert Cowboys, Inc.) - Elle James

I really enjoyed this Intrigue story. It was a fast moving, action packed mission between a female FBI Agent and a male SEAL. It did not disappoint and had a little cliffhanger on the end. I will love to read more of this authors work.

Beauty vs the Beast - M.J. Rodgers I wish I could skim this because the deeply weird set-up is kind of interesting, but there's so much tiresome mystery/suspense stuff and a lot of really irritating characters. Not my thing.
