NetGalley November
Twisted - Rebecca Zanetti

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

After being rescued from the Kurjans Maggie has lived with the vampires, in the Kayrs compound, but now she needs to spend some time around other wolf shifters in the hopes it will help her with her lost memories. Somehow Alpha wolf Terrent Vilks is tied to her past, but he refuses to say how. He wants her to remember on her own. Shifters can live a very long time, so he has plenty of patience. However, after years, his patience is starting to wear thin. It’s time Maggie remember her promise to him.

 

Another decent read in the Dark Protector series. Even though it’s short, it doesn’t lack in action, mystery and hotness. For once we get a view outside the Kayrs compound and focus on some of the other players in this series. It makes for a nice change, no matter how much I love the Kayrs clan and their mates. I love the reveal at the end, too. lolol I look forward to seeing more of Maggie and Terrent.

Fahrenheit 451 ~ graphic novel
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation - Ray Bradbury,Tim Hamilton

*Book source ~ Library

 

Guy Montag is a fireman. But in this dystopian world a fireman makes fires, not stops them. They burn books, buildings and sometimes people if the people refuse to leave. Because books are forbidden and people aren’t supposed to think. Until one day Montag meets a young, strange girl named Clarisse. Clarisse makes him start thinking and from there his whole life changes because thinking is not a good thing to be doing in this world.

 

While I have read several classics there are several more on my TBR and this is one of them. I can’t rate how well the adaptation is since I haven’t read the book, but I do get the gist of what’s going on. I’ve always wanted to read Fahrenheit 451, but I have to say that I’m not overly impressed with it. At least with this version. Maybe it loses a lot in the adaptation or maybe it’s not for me, but I’ll still give the book a try. Some day. Anyway, the story isn’t too bad and while the illustrations are pretty good, especially since they really give the feeling of a bleak and oppressing dystopian world, they aren’t really my style. Fans of the book would probably enjoy this graphic novel though.

Oscar Wilde ~ graphic novel
Graphic Classics Volume 16: Oscar Wilde - Alex Burrows,Antonella Caputo,Rich Rainey

*Book source ~ Library

 

From Goodreads:

Graphic Classics: Oscar Wilde features "The Picture of Dorian Gray," Wilde's tale of narcissism and horror, adapted for comics by Alex Burrows and illustrated by Lisa K. Weber. Plus the comic satire "The Canterville Ghost" by Antonella Caputo and Nick Miller, "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime" by Rich Rainey and Rich Tommaso, and an adaptation of Wilde's exotic play "Salome," illustrated by Molly Kiely.

 

The only story of the four that I’ve wanted to read is The Picture of Dorian Gray. The rest weren’t even on my radar. The entire anthology is done in black and white and each story has its own illustrator and author who adapted it.

 

The Picture of Dorian Gray ~ While I’ve never read the original story I had an idea of what it’s about and this seems to be a fairly decent adaptation. Also, the artwork is gorgeous.

 

The Canterville Ghost ~ Kinda amusing and while the artwork is very detailed it isn’t really my style.

 

Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime ~ The story seemed stupid, but I liked the artwork.

 

Salome ~ This story seemed even more stupid than the previous one and I didn’t like the artwork. So it’s my least favorite of the four.

Love it
Harbinger Vol. 1: Omega Rising - Joshua Dysart

*Book source ~ Free from NoiseTrade

 

From Goodreads:

Super-powered teenager Peter Stanchek is on a dangerous path. Skipping across the country in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, Peter is quickly realizing that he's a psionically-charged "harbinger" with the potential to reshape the course of human history. But Peter's plight has not gone unnoticed. Respected philanthropist and fellow harbinger, Toyo Harada, is about to offer Peter the chance at the things for which the boy has always longed - family, inner peace, self-control - and induct him into the sprawling, secret network of conspiracy and subversion known as the Harbinger Foundation. Now, Peter begins his long road towards a destiny that will shake the very foundations of the Valiant Universe. His first lesson? All power comes with a price!

 

A bit of a different spin on a familiar concept. Sort of like X-Men only the abilities people have are mind-based and don’t affect the physical body. There’s no Mystique, Nightcrawler, Cyclops or Beast in this universe. At least, not that I’ve seen yet. I like Peter. What a shitty hand he was dealt. And I have to tell you, I’m not liking this Toyo dude very much. What the fuck? I like the story and the artwork is fantastic, too. I’m looking forward to more of this series.
