The synopsis made me think of Nikita in the Elizabethan era.
The first chapter was a battle scene, but you couldn't tell. It was all about the heroine, her rage, her need for vengeance and her utter hopelessness as a "soldier". Instead of putting the reader in the thick of things, where you can feel the cold nipping at your skin, where you can smell the blood and sweat of your fellow soldiers, the author spent the best part of the battle inside the heroine's head. And let me tell you, it was a very boring place.
The boredom proceeded with the next few chapters where absolutely nothing happened (no torture, no boiling oil, nothing), but for the heroine to notice just how attractive and gentle her captor was. Foreshadowing much?
So I went and read the last few chapters, to see if it was worth it...It wasn't. The last few chapters were as boring as the first few. The characters were rather bland, the pacing was plodding, and as original as the synopsis sounded, the story was nothing but.

No End of Bad by Ginny Fite started out with me thinking this will just be so so. It didn’t take long for me to become involved and wondering what would I do if I were sitting in a park, minding my own business, nothing new, just the usual work day and I see some litter, so I pick it up. Before I can say, excuse me, I am jumped on, handcuffed and off to who knows where we go.
Innocent until proven guilty? Yeah, right.
Accused of being a spy Clayton Turnbull’s life is over as he knows it. But it gets oh so much worse.
There are so many awful characters, no morals or scruples, a what’s in it for me attitude, and corruption and greed run rampant. These characters don’t even deserve to be put in jail, they deserve to be buried under it. There is no level they will not go to keep what’s theirs and cover up the evidence before that pesky reporter, or someone else, exposes them.
As will Lenore Cavanaugh, the reporter that is like a pit full. She will not let anything go.
Margaret and Melissa Turnbull will rise above and beyond anything they could have dreamed about.
I love a good conspiracy mystery and this is one convoluted tale that goes around the world and back again. Politics and greed rear their ugly heads and run full bore after those who threaten to expose them.
I like a book that makes me question things in the real world. I do wonder what percentage of people in the world today believe everything they read in the papers, see on TV and on the internet. Do they get their news from Facebook?
Well…loaded with danger, corruption, government rogues running wild around the world, these amazing characters will rise to levels never anticipated to do the right thing, to protect their own and to take down the bad guys, no matter who they are or how high they rise. And it doesn’t stop until the last page is read. Warning: the ending may require tissues.
I love this quote from Henry Kissinger:
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean someone isn’t trying to kill you.
Here’s a quote from Melissa to her mother, Margaret:
“God Mom, there’s just No End of Bad.”
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of No End of Bad by Ginny Fite.

Rain's life is spinning out of control. Yes, she's an addict and her past is filled with mistakes, but now it seems her nightmares are coming to life.
Dr. Nine is the evil force in this book and he is creepy as hell. Rain and her friends are wonderfully flawed characters. And Monk is an amazing character all on his own, a cross between a private detective and paranormal vigilante.
I enjoyed this one. It is a bit of a slow burn, but totally worth it. I was surprised by the twists and by the ending. I love Maberry's writing, the Rot & Ruin series, the Pine Deep series, and the Dead of Night series. This one is different but still scary and fun.
I read this book for the Suspense square:
