Couldn't Hold My Interest
The Rise of the Red Queen - Bourne Morris

A retired cop named Wyatt went to a college professor of journalism, called Red, and told her his granddaughter was missing. Red was seeing a detective named Joe and all three tried to proceed to try to find her.

I read over 1/3 of the book and it just couldn't keep me interested. It just seemed to ramble on.

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

The Rise of the Red Queen - Bourne Morris

4 Stars!  #TheRiseoftheRedQueen  @HeneryPress  @BourneMorris  Comes out 12/1/15

This was the second book in this series that I've read and I found that I enjoyed this a little better than the other one. I've got to know Red and I really like her a lot. She's a strong character with good ethics and principals. I like how she will not stand down on her opinions.

In this one, she is being considered as head dean for the journalism school having been put in as interim dean after all that happened in the first book. There's still troubles brewing at the university as a young girl goes missing. This guy is the strangest and weirdest abductor I've seen. He's creepy, but not in a hurtful way, just in a weird way.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery read with a strong female lead.

Thanks Henery Press and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

The Rise of the Red Queen
The Rise of the Red Queen - Bourne Morris

I enjoyed the first book in this series, even with all the maddening drama that Red had to deal with, and really looked forward to reading this latest installment. Red is back as interim Dean of the Journalism School and is currently in the running to become the permanent Dean. She thinks she just might have a shot now that things have calmed down a bit. Unfortunately for Red things start to spiral out of control leaving a journalism student missing and her colleagues either bickering with each other or just becoming downright stupid.

 

I really do like Red and always end up feeling horrible for her with all she has to put up with. You would have thought that after the first book there couldn't possibly have been anymore drama at the University but there was. Sometimes the drama can be a bit over the top (like with her colleagues) but I really liked how the over the top drama was balanced out by the disappearance of Jamie. Getting to read from Jamie's point of view and seeing what she experienced is what I really liked about this book. 

 

The true identity of who was behind the disappearance wasn't all that hard for me to figure out. With all that happened in the book I just felt like that person's identity was obvious. It did feel like a little bit of a letdown but didn't drastically lessen my enjoyment of the book.

 

I am looking forward to reading more of this series but I do hope the future books do not include so much bickering and crazy drama between the professors on the campus. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Queen of Sheba, she's not as you expect.
Legend of Sheba: The Rise of a Queen - Tosca Lee

Tosca Lee has long been one of my favorite authors.


This is her best book yet. The characters are colorful without being unbelievable. Tosca writes with such realism, the reader can actually be part of the story. Bilqis (Queen of Sheba) is an amazing character. We follow her throughout her ups and downs, we laugh and cry with her.


This is a beautifully written, inspirational story that is certain to please.

The Serpentwar Saga: (Shadow of a Dark Queen; Rise of a Merchant Prince; Rage of a Demon King; Shards of a Broken Crown) by Raymond E. Feist
The Serpentwar Saga: (Shadow of a Dark Queen; Rise of a Merchant Prince; Rage of a Demon King; Shards of a Broken Crown) - Raymond E Feist

Read by Tiffany: Interestingly paced, sections of action, then long sections of training and travel. Erik and Roo are engaging characters and their development through the obstacles and hardships they must overcome is well constructed. And then the battle begins ... and we fight every step of the way from Krondor to Darkmoor.. while Pug, Macros, Nakor, Miranda and Calis gradually reveal their secrets piece by piece and unravel the truth of the Chaos War and the creation and purpose of the Lifestone at Sethanon. Action packed and suspenseful - lets face it, Feist could kill any of them off any time! - And very well written.
