Festive Task 7
Cold Blood: Nick Stone Thriller 18 - Andy McNab

 

Task 7 

Book themes for Saint Lucia's Day: Read a book set in Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Sweden - and Finland for the purposes of this game) or a book where ice and snow are an important feature.

 

 

Nick Stone is getting recruited to help a group of amputees to go to North Pole. 

 

Ice and snow is the elementary danger beside the guns and fire. 

 

The plot starts with Nick Stone reluctantly drawn into a task that he didn't want in the first place. 

A guy he knew wanted Stone's help to get his son safe when he and a group of amputees tried to go to a hike on the North Pole. 

 

The son Jack was in the military and got his leg blown off shortly after he got into action.

 

Now that Jack and his fellow friends, other amputees would like to get to the North Pole but their sponsor pulled out.

 

Where to get the money is part of the problem.

 

Now they just landed on a place where there are some armed Russians want to get part of the action of oil underneath the ice.

 

The came the father drawing in Rune, a geek that suppose to put equipment on the ice to see if the ice is melting. 

 

The twist is that everyone is lying. The friend Jack has that could get the money is lying. And they got shot at.

 

After being chased. They ended up stranded  on ice. Cold and dying. Then they got escorted to a Russian submarine. 

 

The bigger picture is the behind twist. Who get the oil? The Americans or the Russians? 

 

Not as engaging as I hope. But I'm not that into extreme sports. 

 

Still a 4 stars read.

Nick Gautier is in trouble again
Invision (Chronicles of Nick) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

The trouble hole keeps getting bigger and Nick keeps digging.  He's finding out more about what he potentially could do and finding that his powers come with responsibility and that responsibility could be complicated.

 

It's entertaining but the power levels seem to be a bit excessive.

Little Heaven
Little Heaven: A Novel - Nick Cutter

Why, why, why, does someone like me, who is terrified of horror movies and books, keep choosing these books from NetGalley? To be fair, I have not chosen a lot of them, and they all have one commonality — they were all written by Nick Cutter (or Craig Davidson, who uses this name as a pseudonym.) I don't know what it is about these books, but I've said it before (here) and (here), I just find Cutter's writing completely compelling. This time, I didn't even tell my husband about it, I just went ahead and read it without the horror-shaming that usually comes first from him. And guess what? I loved this one too, more than The Deep, and a teensy-bit less than The Troop. Maybe next time I'll try a Davidson book, so I won't have to sleep with the lights on for a week after I finish.

 

Honestly, that's all I'm going to say about this, you don't need anything else from me. Get the book and read it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Freaked out, confused and sleepless, but definitely not disappointed.

Doom Patrol Vol. 1: Brick by Brick (Young Animal) - Gerard Way,Nick Derington

Reading only the first volume, I have no idea if this stands on its own or if it is some sort of cargo cult replica of Morrison's run on this title. But the book is beautiful and intriguing, so I suppose the answer is to read along until it reveals itself.

There's late and then there's...I might have gotten lost along the way...
Racing for the Sun - Russo Nick,Amy Lane

I have to admit this was one Amy Lane book that for whatever reason just never really caught my eye until I read the second book in her  series "Fish Out of Water" and Jackson and Ellery pay Sonny and Ace a visit in search of some information and now I'm interested..and even then there's been a few side trips along the way before I truly reached my destination...but I'm here at last and...

 

I soon discovered that the quickest way to truly reach my destination, by that I mean get into this story, of course, is via audio book and when I saw that it was narrated by Nick J. Russo well problem solved since he is absolutely one of my favorite narrators when it comes to audio books... so audio book purchased and destination reached.

 

I loved this story. Yes there were some questionable moments, a f*k-ton of angst and at times...well lets just say that the hinges on Sonny's door are definitely coming loose and the fact that it's Ace who keeps him on any kind of an even keel is abundantly clear as is the fact that there are really no limits on what Ace will do to protect Sonny. 

 

Would this kind of relationship work for me in the real world? Hell NO!!! But, in the world that Ms. Lane has created I was so on board with Sonny and Ace...just think of me and the middle-aged lady sitting front and center in their cheering section. 

 

Including this one I've listened to 22 audio books narrated by Nick J. Russo and I've enjoyed the hell out of his performances on every one of them and more than once on most of them, but I have to say I think this is going to be one of my favorites. He totally nailed the voices for both of the MCs but especially Ace. 

 

Ok, so I'm keeping it short and sweet today because honestly there's already a lot of good reviews out there for this one both the e-book and the audio...I was definitely more than a little late to the party when it came to this book. But 'Better late than never' as the saying goes and I'm so behind on my TBR list, I know I'm never going to get caught up...but a girls gotta' try, right?
