Kept me on my toes
The Wicked Go To Hell (Pushkin Vertigo) - Frédéric Dard,David Coward

This is a little gem of a book that was first published in France back in 1956. The author, Frederic Dard, published over 300 thrillers, suspense stories, plays and screenplays.  This book was first written by Dard as a play and then released in a film directed by Robert Hossein in 1955.   The book is a novelization of the film and has recently been translated to English with publication in the US.

 

The story involves two prisoners, Frank and Hal, sharing a cell. One of them is a spy and one of them is a police officer who has been told to help the spy escape prison, thereby earning his trust so he can learn more about the spy ring.  The reader has no idea who is the spy and who is the police officer.  It’s a short book and kept me guessing and I enjoyed it.  Nothing in depth here with not much fleshing out of the characters but rather a simple straightforward suspenseful story that kept my interest.

 

This book was given to me by the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.

The Scorch Trials
The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, #2) - James Dashner

This book frustrated me so much. I just got way too wrapped up in it. For some reason I just couldn't stand the new characters in this book and couldn't stand how the characters we already know were acting. I just feel like these poor characters keep getting their chains yanked for nothing, and that is exactly how I felt while reading this. I know that there is some reason to the madness that WICKED is wreaking upon the Gladers and group B but for their sake and mine I would have hoped to have learned more by now. This book had plenty of action and did seem to be more of a dystopian book than the last one so I would recommend those who liked the first book to read this one. I plan on reading the last book in the series, even though I am frustrated, but since I am still on a waiting list for it I'll be taking a tiny break from the series until I manage to get a hold of the book.

Wicked Road to Hell - Juliana Stone Ms. Stone is back with an edgy and dark spin-off to her popular Jaguar series. This first book in the League of Guardians introduces a new set of promising and exciting battles with deliciously interesting characters.Stone picks up with Declan (Jaguar Series) a sexy and deadly sorcerer who was cast away in Hell, literally. He escaped the pits of hell with the help of Seraphim who is using him for his own advantages. Grateful to no longer suffer at the hands of Lilith but not particularly happy to work for Bill, Declan is sent to New Orleans to retrieve a target. He is on a mission and nothing will stop him from getting his target…that is until he realizes that his target is a young boy that is protecting by the woman he loves.Years ago, Declan watched his beloved vampire Ana receive a stake in her cold heart. The shock of seeing her again, turns his head upside down. She is still fierce and beautiful but she is also on the other team or so he thinks.Ana Delacrux never thought she would have the opportunity to be with Declan again but the odds are in her favor. She convinces a reluctant Declan to help protect Kaden from the Seraphs. The two partnering up is a bad combination that leaves them both questioning whether they can let go of the past?I am so excited to have finally learned how Ana and Declan turned out. While I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the previous Jaguar books, it is entertaining and spicy. Fans of the series who have both watched Ana and Declan as secondary characters will be happy to see them as leading characters. More of their past and secrets are revealed as they struggle to fight their feelings for one another.My only problem with this book is that there is too much angst. After a while, I just wanted them to accept one another and be a couple. The constant tug of war distracted me and I started to focus on the back story. The side characters are interesting and Ms. Stone has set up the story nicely for an introduction to her series.

Wicked Road to Hell - Juliana Stone One part gangsta, two parts noir, WICKED ROAD TO HELL certainly delivers the bite and danger promised in the title. Declan O'Hara is not charming or smooth, but that sharp brand of alpha that treads the line between aggressively hot and just plain aggressive. Luckily, the politics in this world are complex enough to give Ana and Declan time to smooth out the rough edges, and Stone paces everything just right to make the stops and starts of their characters another piece of the anticipation.
