Kindle Review
Bella's Band - Alina K. Field

Book source ~ Kindle Lending Library

 

Major Steven Beauverde’s older brother was murdered and now he has to take the mantle of Earl of Hackwell. However, he hears rumors of a bastard son, so he starts a dual investigation: find out the real circumstances surrounding his brother’s death and find the child, if there is one. Because there is no way he wants to be saddled with the title if he can help it. Along the way he stumbles across Annabelle Harris and her wards, two-year-old Robby and nine-year-old Thomas. He suspects she’s deeply involved with the subjects he’s investigating, but he’s not sure how. Finding out will be a pleasurable pastime since he’s got the hots for her. And if he’s not mistaken, she for him.

 

He’s not mistaken. She lusts after him even though he’s dangerous to her way of life and her secrets. But there’s not much time for hanky panky because there’s a murderer on the loose and everyone is in danger. I’m not a big fan of Steven myself, but I’m not going to be the one leg shackled to him, so whatever floats Annabelle’s boat. I do love Annabelle for most of the book. She’s strong, independent, courageous, quick thinking, and not afraid to do what she wants. Being wealthy helps even if she doesn’t have a title. She does do a couple of very stupid things that make me want to slap her, but for the most part I really like her. Steven is just meh to me. I’m not sure why. It’s as if I couldn’t really get to know him or connect with the character or something. Side characters are interesting and worthy additions to the tapestry. And I do love a bit of danger. What brought this book down for me was the beginning is very confusing. For quite some time I couldn’t figure out who was who or what the hell was going on, but then it settles down into a more stable story telling. All-in-all an entertaining read once you get past the confusing beginning.

Disappointing
Angel: Last Angel in Hell - Juliet Landau,Stephen Mooney,Franco Urru,Brian Lynch

*Book source ~ Library

 

From Goodreads: In possibly the craziest Angel volume yet, we find out what happened to Gunn, Drusilla, Angel, and Spike in the aftermath of the Fall, which includes comas, insane asylums, a comic con, and even Angel’s movie adaptation. With stories by fan-favorite writer Brian Lynch and a two-issue arc co-written by Drusilla herself, Juliet Landau, this collection shows you just how insane Angel’s world can get."

 

WTF did I just read? This has got to be the worst volume yet. I would give it a 1 if I hadn’t liked Drusilla’s story arc and the Comic-Con story. Those two are awesome! The rest can just suck it because Grrr Argh! The artwork is very nice though.

Bleh
Angel: Aftermath - Kelley Armstrong,Stefano Martino,Dave Ross

From Goodreads:

Springing out of Joss Whedon's Angel: After the Fall story line, novelist Kelley Armstrong (The Summoning) comes aboard to explore the many repercussions following the explosive last issue of Angel: After the Fall. Artist Dave Ross also comes aboard to present the first arc of "Aftermath," wherein we learn who lived, who died, and who will be forever changed from the experience.

 

Originally published as Angel issues #18-22

 

First off, I hate the artwork. None of the characters are recognizable and half the time Angel looks like a Hulked-out vampire. Blerg. I like that Gwen, Kate and Connor are in this and I like the additions of Dez and Jamaerah. Not sure what’s up with the Elohim and the Potentates, but I’m looking forward to seeing where this is heading. As long as it’s drawn by someone else. Because I hate when characters are unrecognizable. It’s too frustrating.
