Murder by Death
Murder by Death rated it 8 months ago
The second of Alex's books, and the best of the two by a clear margin. This one takes place in Australia, and the author nails the setting, while taking the mickey about (northern) Australia's natural population's inherent desire to kill everyone. Half-off Ragnarok struggled to get this cultural u...

I really do love this series, although this was the weakest so far.

One of the main attractions is the world fi...

Since we were flying mainly over ocean, I...

Pocket Apocalypse was waiting for me when I came home from work yesterday, and I begrudged every single moment since then spent not-reading. Everything about Alex and Shelby's relationship felt real, and even the "monsters" were comprehensible. There was a death that made me cry, and one that made...
