NetGalley November
The Flesh Cartel #4: Consequences (The Flesh Cartel Season 2: Fragmentation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

This is the continuation of Dougie and Mat’s story of how they were kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. They have begun their training with Nikolai who must mold them into the perfect submissives before they are sent off to their new Master.

 

It’s not the story, it’s definitely me. I’m just not interested in Dougie and Mat’s dilemma anymore. I don’t know if it’s all the psychological stuff, all the internal debate, Nikolai or it’s just not moving fast enough for me, but I’m done with this series. It’s still well-written with great characters, but apparently my tastes have changed. Don’t let my ennui put you off reading this series.

NetGalley November
The Flesh Cartel #3: Choices (The Flesh Cartel Season 2: Fragmentation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

Mat and Dougie have survived (barely) the flesh auction and head to the home of their new Master’s professional trainer, Nikolai Petrovic. Only they don’t know that until they get there. Each brother doesn’t even know where the other is even though they are traveling in the same RV. Is life about to get harder for them? Or will they escape?

 

I’m not finding this series as enthralling as I did when I started. It’s still compelling and the writing is great, but maybe my tastes have changed. I want the brothers to escape their situation, but I’m not getting much hope to cling to. Maybe that’s the problem. They didn’t sign up for any of this, so I want to see them triumph over the bad guys, but it’s just not happening fast enough for me. If it ever does? I’m not sure. I probably wouldn’t continue except I have the next section from NetGalley. Maybe things will look up for the brothers then.

Graphic Novel Review
 The Red Shoes and Other Tales - Metaphrog

*Book source ~ Free from NoiseTrade

 

From Goodreads:

There once was a young girl, who was pretty but poor. So poor she had to go barefoot. Her name was Karen and she loved to dance. When Karen becomes an orphan, her great aunt takes her in. One day on a shopping trip, she is bought a beautiful pair of red shoes. The shoes magically come to life and steer Karen down a path she never would have imagined in her wildest dreams, or nightmares. This fresh take on the Hans Christian Andersen classic “The Red Shoes” is a tale of hope, obsession and guilt, retold and lavishly illustrated by multiple-Eisner award nominated creators Metaphrog. Also included is an adaptation of Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl” and an original story, “The Glass Case”.

 

I can’t believe I’ve never read the two Andersen stories. I’m seriously deficient in the classics. I get the gist of the tales from this graphic novel, but I’ll still want to read the actual books someday. The Glass Case is an original and it's not bad. The artwork is ok. It’s not horrible, but I wasn’t wowed either. All-in-all it’s an enjoyable way to spend the 20 minutes or so it takes to read it.

Book Nibbles Review #2
Serenity: Better Days - Will Conrad,Brett Matthews,Joss Whedon

*Book source ~ Library

 

From Goodreads:

Serenity: Better Days follows everyone's favorite space cowboys in a thrilling, action-packed adventure, where Mal and his crew take on a heist that promises a big payoff. But when one of Serenity's crew is taken captive and tortured, the gang must put their enduring differences aside and work together to save one of their own, even if it means losing the cash prize of a lifetime!

 

The artwork is decent and the storyline isn’t too bad. I’m not jumping for joy or anything though. I guess it might help if I watch the show. But really, this graphic novel should make me want to claim the tv from the rest of the family and binge watch. Unfortunately, it doesn’t.

Book Nibbles Review #1
Serenity: Those Left Behind - Will Conrad,Brett Matthews,Joss Whedon

*Book source ~ Library

 

From Goodreads:

Here's how it is -- in a universe filled with hearts and minds as cold and dark as the reaches of space, one small Firefly-class starship named Serenity takes its ragtag crew of mercenaries, outlaws, and fugitives in search of a job, any job, that'll earn them enough cash to afford that most elusive commodity -- peace.

 

I’ll admit that I’ve only seen half of the first episode of Firefly and I’ve never seen the movie.  I started the show, got interrupted and haven’t managed to get back to it yet. But I do intend to. I like the artwork. It’s detailed and the colors are pretty good. The characters also look enough like the show for me to distinguish who they are, but they’re not quite right. As for the storyline, I enjoyed it, but wasn’t overwhelmed. Firefly fanatics would probably love this, but I have no way of knowing.
