"Druid Vampire Requiem" by Kurokoneko Kamen

 

My Thoughts...

 

This story continues on from this author's  'Druid Vampire' where we now have the Huntress, Becca out to defeat Dracula and save Derek Dearg. Will Becca be making a big mistake in doing this to Derek?  I liked how this author brings in Becca's family [the Thorns] who were quite a humorous as they came for  visit.

 

As the story moves on the reader will get some more interesting characters such as Homicide Detective Alex and his police dog Maddy. It was quite a read as Becca's family will be attacked by zombies and as Alex will try to help them however suddenly a vampire shows up.  Will all be lost?

 

Will San Francisco be save from this 'Zombie Apocalypse' attack?  What will happen when Becca is kidnapped by Dracula and the Battle Nun Kendra Knight and the mad scientist Dr. Lazar Robinovitch are also in this dungeon captured?  Will Becca be able to figure out the connection between the Battle Nun and Dracula before it's too late?  In the end will Becca be able 'to use this weakness against him [Dracula] and fulfill the prophecy?  Will Becca and Derek finally get a HEA?  To get all of  the answers to all of these questions  and so much more the reader will have to pick up this good read "Druid Vampire Requiem" to see how this author will present it so well to the readers.

Saturday Requiem - Nicci French  
Saturday Requiem - Nicci French

Copy on its way! can't wait! One of the best writing duos of all time.

***

I don't think of myself as being a fan of series in general, because so many series that I started out loving became unreadable at some point. Maybe there will be a let down somewhere in the future, or maybe, as with Terry Pratchett, the books will just keep getting better. Fingers crossed.

Frieda is in trouble with powers that be, because she's such a maverick, but she also has more powerful powers that be, which are vague, and mysterious, and appreciate a clever woman. There's her whole extended family of people who mostly aren't related to her, and her cat, and her fire, and her walking. The mystery was fine, although that really isn't the point any more. Mostly now Freida has to deal with her own sort of celebrity, which is horrible for someone who never sought the limelight. And there's this other problem that won't go away...

At this point I wouldn't mind at all if the authors dropped the mystery plot convention altogether. As a means of addressing a topic it is fine, but they could just use a patient. I admit that I love seeing social injustice (and crime) being fought, even if Frieda didn't win.

Advance copy, yay!

REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM by Noam Chomsky
Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 P... Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power - Noam Chomsky,Peter Hutchison,Kelly Nyks,Jared P. Scott
  Very timely. Very interesting. It's the companion book to the documentary by the same name. I liked that he went back 50 years to put what is happening today in our government and society in prospective and giving us the history of what has led up to today. He gives examples as well as excerpts of his source materials. This is written so it can be understood by everyone. I learned a lot. There is a lot to think about in these pages.

Requiem for the Wolf
Requiem for the Wolf (Tales from the Tiarna Beo Book 1) - Tara Saunders
This has a dark feel to it. There are some pretty graphic scenes, but it's not nasty gruesome. I like that in a book, a lot.

The gadhar attacked again, slashing the loose skin on the wolf's neck with dagger-sharp claws. Bragg lunged, his knife finding flesh this time scoring a short line of red along the wolf's haunch.

This is pretty unique from other books that sit in the same genre/type, also good. The writing is good, very heavy on content. By that I mean there is a lot packed in and it is very detailed. My favorite scene was in the beginning where the main character is at a market of sorts and he meets up with a bad guy Lupe who he had been tracking. 

The writing is good. There are no plot holes that stood out. Not many, if any, typos. I would have liked to see more descriptive summary concerning the setting. They were described, and I got a good idea, but it seemed to lack the beautiful wording that a lot of fantasy books have.

All in all a good read. I hope to see more from this author and really am impressed. I didn't know own what to expect as I have never read anything from her prior to this. I look forward to reading her work as she builder her skills as a writer.

Review ebook provided from Netgalley.

Requiem Vampire 2
Requiem Vampire Knight, Vol 2: Danse Macabre - Pat Mills

The plot is still a bit so so but I enjoyed the artwork more in this one. Some of the panels are amazing looking but at times it definitely feels like style over substance.
