THE SILENCED by Heather Graham
The Silenced - Heather Graham

The Silenced (Krewe of Hunters #15)

Paperback, 352 pages
Published June 30th 2015 by Mira

ISBN:  0778317994 (9780778317999)

 

 

Every once in a while, I enjoy reading a Heather Graham novel. This one, set around a new FBI agent and her best friend who works for a congressman. Meg, upon completing her FBI training, gets assigned to a division of the FBI who are also mediums. Set in Washington, DC and several areas well known for their Civil War history, the plot moves along well. Graham always seems to add a little romance to her novels as well. In The Silenced, this romance part did not seem to get too much in the way. I enjoyed the Civil War part of the story, which includes a Civil War Reenactment. While Heather Graham is not one of my favorite authors, I do enjoy reading her novels for something fun and appealing for something a little easier to read.

Stygian by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

I have a bit of a problem with the characters. Maybe a couple.

I hate to say it, but Jeremy comes off as self-centered and whiny. I am not blaming him, he had lived through too much loss and pain, I get it. Yet the fact remains.

Everyone's either relative(s) or a friend or a lover is dead or a drunk or a punk or a weirdo. Throw me one undamaged person. Please. Because this is like reading a book where everyone is gay, even pets. Weird.

And one more thing: I don't find it creepy or scary, just overly dramatic. I was skipping paragraphs and - never thought I ever would, while reading SH - pages. 

3.5 stars. Since I really liked Hunter and his evil mindf*cking ways, I am rounding this up to 4.

PS I had no problem with the ending whatsoever. It was clear where things were going, I thought it was perfect. Another reason I rounded up, not down. I do hope for a sequel, just to see if Q got over his "sickness".

Coyote's Creed (Broken Mirrors #1) by Vaughn R. Demont
Coyote's Creed - Vaughn R. Demont

3.5-ish stars.

 

Warnings: 
Non-romance. There are some smooches, sex, even attempts at "i love you", but - no, not a romance. 
Elements of horror.

One full star off for Present Tense. I find it generally awkward and unnatural, bordering creepy, unless it's tied to the story/characters, like The Silvers, where one of the MCs lives "in the present" and processes everything accordingly.

0.3 stars off for the urn shuffle. The whole business is rather fishy and springs an unhealthy amount of unanswered questions.

 

0.2 stars off for non-american feel. I kept thinking I am in Europe somewhere, no matter how much the author wanted me to believe otherwise.

Anyway, a very entertaining read. Rounding down to 3 (considering the rough beginning) and moving onto book 2.

The Paranormal Detection Agency by Anne Brooke
The Paranormal Detection Agency - Anne Brooke

3.5 because of horror and long sex scenes, I find both boring (in general). Rounding up to 4, since it's not really anyone's problem but mine.

********

Not directly related to the book or BookLikes:

UPDATE: I sorted out the emails and fixed read count for this book, but I am leaving my rant where it is.

*
What The F, GoodReads? I have never read this book and yet it says I've read it twice already. I try and tinker with the dates and no matter what I do, it still counts for at least ONE PREVIOUS READ.

And what is it with e-mails telling me I finished a book I just finished. I KNOW I finished it. I READ IT. I MARKED IT ASREAD. I don't need to be informed via e-mail, too. 

Why won't GR fix community shelves instead? They are at dinosaurs' stage still!!! 

GAHHHH!!!!!
