Reading progress update: I've read 39 out of 120 pages.

So, they know about The Blue, that they live underwater, and Trish has weird power waters that they're like 'what is this????'

 

Clearly she's one of The Blue - or the Blue Elite, if not The Black.   Given the powerful shit she's done, I'm guessing The Black, although Elite Blue wouldn't be out of the question.

This is getting unbelievable.

 

Trish comes home, finds her family dead, and doesn't call the police.  Instead she runs to her boyfriend, to find her cheating, and other big stuff happens.  (I'm glossing over to get to the important, unrealistic to me part.)

 

She's talking to her friend who finds her, and asking what she'll do.   She just blurts out that she goes home to find her parents dead, and that she thinks they killed themselves.   Neither of this sixteen or so year old girls thinks to call the police about, say, where Trish will stay?   What the what?

 

Neither of them are concerned that this could be something the police need to investigate, and that the longer they don't call the police, the more chance that shit could get fucked up real bad?

 

What the what?

(spoiler show)

Review: Dark Water by Parker Bilal
Dark Water (The Makana Mysteries) - Parker Bilal

 

 

When an Englishman, Marcus Winslow, appears at Makana's door one April morning, Makana does not realize that he will soon risk losing everything he has built for himself in Cairo. Winslow represents the British government--meaning the Secret Intelligence Service--and he has a special mission to offer, one that Makana cannot resist: Ayoub Hadari, a dangerous specialist in biochemical nerve agents, is on the run and asking for asylum. The only person who can bring him in is Makana--by Ayoub's own request. Ayoub has gone underground in Istanbul and Makana, for the first time since arriving in Egypt, must travel abroad, to a city he doesn't know. Can he trust Marcus Winslow? Or is something more sinister in the works? In this foreign city, Makana soon realizes that nothing is what it appears to be. Suddenly, his past is racing to catch up with him, and Makana becomes both hunter and hunted.

 

 

 

This is book six in the Makana series but the first book I read. I think while it can be read as a standalone, it would have been easier and more enjoyable if I had read the previous books. That being said I had no real idea of what I’m getting into. The world setting is good and easy to understand and very well described. Sometimes a little over described. The same goes for the characters. I had a hard time to relate Makana at times but I think that could have been because I have not rad the previous books. I thought for a crime-mystery it also was very political and various views of politics and foreign affairs and even terrorism comes up. It was rather suspenseful and I never knew what would come next which I enjoyed. Some parts seemed a bit dense but overall it was a good read. It was something I would have never picked up myself but ended up enjoying.

 

I rate it 3 ★

Bound by Water: Pisces (Zodiac Shifters #6) by Monica La Porta
Bound by Water: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance: Pisces - Monica La Porta,Zodiac Shifters
Bound by Water: Pisces is the second book in the Zodiac Shifters series that I have read, and I enter a new world with a new group of shifters that I can't wait to read more of. Ariel is a mortal and knows nothing of the paranormal world that lives in sync around her. Atreides is a merman, the last of his kind that he knows about. When these two meet on a moonlit night, he puts down their attraction to simple moon-lust. However, Ariel's life is about to change in a big way, and the paranormal world comes closer to home than either she or Atreides ever expected.
 
This is a great story that is smooth yet it moves at a swift pace. With a great supporting cast of characters that I long to know more about, there is enough in this story to satisfy and yet will definitely leave you wanting more. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

Phew, I Needed to Sit Down After Finishing This One
By Dana Stabenow Dead in the Water (Kate Shugak Mystery) (1st First Edition) [Mass Market Paperback] - Dana Stabenow

Wonderful edge of my seat action plus adventure on the frozen sea. I swear I thought I'd scream during several of the near death moments. Kate can be insanely strong ! Oh and i love the new character California surfer Andy.
Kate goes on a crabbing boat, one of the most dangerous jobs on earth to find out what happened to two missing/presumed dead crabbers. She faces a frozen angry ocean, meets an elder who teaches her much and faces some of her past. Holy smokes it's intense !
Now on to #4
