Community Service (Broken Mirrors #3) by Vaughn R. Demont
Community Service - Vaughn R. Demont
Some of my notes from Goodreads:
"Here we go again: info dumping and making things up on a fly (to add page count?) and reminiscing while everything is going to sh*ts. Why am still I reading this? @.O
Ah, right, challenge. And stupid notion that I must finish a book if I am past 75%."
"Omfg, stab me, stab! me! You don't frigging explain everything to your nemesis, you just KILL them! I swear my eyes are rolling all the way across *deh pond* right now!"
"This why I don't like present tense and cheap tricks horror books. You can't have a decent battle. The hero has to pause and reflect and both the hero the villain have to keep yapping at each other in the middle of life/death struggle. It's triple annoying! Maybe THAT is meant as horror? And damn if I am not tempted to dnf this bs at 80% :/"

Damon Snow and the Nocturnal Lessons
Damon Snow and the Nocturnal Lessons - Olivia Helling

I am not sure what to say about this book. Let me think here for a second...

So. Hmmm... OK. Ugh....

Paranormal aspect. 
I have no idea why it is even mentioned, to tell you the truth, unless it's relevant somewhere down the line in book 5. I just don't see it playing a significant role in incubus-turned-dirt-poor-rentboy setup in the near future. There are no superpowers. There is not a sniff of something dark or magical in the air. Any talented and eager rentboy with years of experience on top of it should know how to satisfy and manipulate clients. 

I do like and read historicals/classics. But still I managed to get tangled in pinks, flats, culls and what have you.

Time Setting.
There are no references to the historical period, except for the opening sentence. There is no (paranormal) world building. MC's world is tight. So tight, in fact, I feel claustrophobic. This whole affair could be happening on Alpha Centauri 1649 years from now it's so bland where the environment is concerned.

The story turned around close to the middle and allowed for interesting developing which I did not anticipate at all. A star for that. 

However, I don't believe I will be continuing this series. Unless I am in dire need of a super quick read.

2 stars for the first 40-50%, 4 for the rest of it.

Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits by Lyn Gala
Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits - Lyn Gala

This installment brings very little to Liam/Ondry relationship while they are visiting human home-base planet. Perhaps the Rawnt gain some new perspective on how we, humans, function, but being human I found myself bored.

The story goes round and round and repeats itself from every person's POV possible. Disappointed :/
