Spoko. No, bo spoko.
ReDawn (Skyward Flight: Novella 2) - Brandon Sanderson,Janci Patterson

Wydaje się, że po dwóch książkach mogę już coś powiedzieć o stylu pani Janci Patterson. Z pewnością jest sprawną pisarką. Z pewnością też lepiej radzi sobie na polu relacji uczuciowo-emocjonalnych między bohaterami niż pan Sanderson (o którym możemy z kolei powiedzieć, że to jest jego najsłabsza strona). Podoba mi się też wyczuwalny w narracji lekki dystans i delikatna dawka ironii, ciągle jednak z zachowaniem sympatii do swoich bohaterów.


Całokształt psuje jednak trochę ta maniera nadmiernego tłumaczenia motywacji. No, naprawdę, jeżeli ktoś się zasmucił lub ucieszył, to wiedząc, co się wcześniej wydarzyło, zazwyczaj jesteśmy w stanie powiedzieć, z jakiego powodu – nie trzeba marnować kolejnego zdania lub dwóch, żeby to wyjaśniać. Trochę więcej wiary w czytelników, pani Patterson!


Co do samej książki, choć daje radość z poznawania dalszych zakątków świata i losów eskadry Skyward, to nie porwała mnie przez większość czasu. Dopiero koniec wydawał się żywszy i bardziej emocjonalny. Właściwie rzec mogę, że końcówka ratuję tę powieść. I zachęca, do sprawdzenia, co dalej...

Locked Heart - Eden Finley

Cash has finally achieved a lifelong dream.  One thing he notices now, is that the one person he wanted to be with him there when he experiences it, is not a part of his life anymore.  Should he reach out?


Sherlock AKA "Locke" is not sure if he should open a door that has been closed for a decade.  Will he survive if he spends time with Cash again?  He took a lot to get where he is in his life.  If only he could stop himself from feeling attracted........


This book has a strong character base.  I found myself wanting to know more about all of them.  Such a solid story and the pace was pleasantly fast but not too much.  I really liked it and could not put it down and then I was done. Would love to see these characters again.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Lucky Shot - Sarina Bowen

Bess is new employee working for an established sports agency.  With her birthday coming up, her boss invites her to dinner with some new clients.  She figures it will give her experience, so why not go?

Mark AKA "Tank" is excited to be chosen to work with the team in New York.  He was more than pleased to meet such a sexy woman at dinner too.  Maybe they should get to know one another?

This was a quick jaunt into the lives of some very talented characters.  I was pleased to get to read their "meet cute."  Right from the beginning they are attracted to each other.  The fact they are intelligent only adds to the attraction.  We see these amazing characters again in the current book Sure Shot.

A Little Light Mischief: A Turner Novella - Cat Sebastian
  Molly works as a lady's maid in the same household where Alice is the companion to the mistress of the house. Alice tries to help Molly because she is not used to having idle time but since she was thrown out of her father's household she has a whole lot of time on her hands as a companion. When they go with their mistress to a house party in the country, there Alice discovers the man who caused her ruin will be. Molly convinces her to exact a bit of revenge on the man.

I liked Molly and Alice. They are different in temperament but have known what it is to work hard. They also discover their true selves in the company of each other and plan a future together. The men in this book are not admirable and I can understand why Molly and Alice plan their mischief. I especially liked how emboldened Alice became when Molly spoke of her plan which did not go as planned but caused Alice to improvise. The courage she gained then carried over to her father's comeuppance. I cheered Alice on. It was wonderful.

Yumi by Renée Ahdieh
Yumi - Renee Ahdieh
Again like the previous novella this picks up at the end of the first book, Flame in the Mist. This novella focused on Yumi, a character who isn't a main character in the first book but is part of the story.
Like Mariko she wants more from life and not to be beholden to man. It was great to see what makes her tick, her feelings that drive her. I really hope she gets to be in the second book with chapters from her POV, I would love to see a second woman break with the traditions that's expected of her and take action and follow what she believes.
Just like the novella before it isn't required reading, it doesn't add anything to the plot but adds to a character that is lesser known.
