Weather and the Mayhem it Creates

I live in a state where the start of hurricane season is marked on a calendar and the end of it is a cause for celebration–we have survived one more year without the big one washing us away.   Katrina and it’s devastation shocked even those of us who live in Hurricane zones.  And while there are certainly a number of places where we all know that we are one bad storm away from losing it all, there is far more of our country succeptable to a bad hurricane then we ever think about as it is the whole Atlantic coastline as well as the Gulf of Mexico’s coastline that has to face storms and their aftermath.   As Harvey hits, and rain and it’s wide variety of consequences are being felt in Texas and all along the gulf coast, I urge my friends who are affected to stay safe, stay together And batten down what hatches you had yet to get to.   And, selfish as it maybe, I thank g-d that this one has passed me by with little but rain in an unending supply, thunderstorms that rattle the house and the quite strange experience of standing on my front porch watching every low spot on  my five acres turn Into a lake.  But that’s the price of living in a hurricane zone… And every part of...

A Book Review or two and a Little Respect

A couple of days ago, I warned that my posts might seem to be a little surreal because I was starting Jeaniene Frost‘s Night Prince which was the fourth and final installment in the that series.  The reason that required a caveat was that Vlad is the hero int that series and he has a stepson and blood nephew named Mircea.  Given that most of my posts revolve around the Cassandra Palmer and the Dorina Basarab series in which Mircea is a hero and Vlad a villain.  I have to admit that it was difficult even within my own mind to make the switch.  Eventually, though, my brain successfully made the switch and I came to really enjoy the return to the Night Huntress world.  I have to give Jeaniene Frost some mad props.  Mencheres plays a large role in the book and they throw in a stay at Kat and Bones cabin.  What amazes me about this is that Jeaniene Frost is able to successfully end each series and then start another tangential story, one for which the foundations were laid in the process of telling this hero/heroine story.  This means that when the next series, which will revolve around Ian, starts we know that some of our old friends will play a part and, in a way, each successive series is a continuation of the one before. ...

Switching tracks…

For a long time now, I have been blogging about Karen Chance’s books and talking about my relationships with the main characters in that world in an almost casual way.  During that time, Jeaniene Frost has released two books, that although I had purchased them and added them to my to be read queue, I hadn’t read them yet.  So, I am issuing a little bit of a warning and a caution for all those Karen Chance fans who are following me.  I am reading Jeaniene Frost’s night Prince finale.  This may be a wee bit confusing because in this series Vlad (aka Dracula) is the hero and is married to a psychic Leila.  They are fighting against a foe named Mircea who is somehow his stepson as well as his nephew by blood as Radu’s son.  So for the next little bit of time, my posts might become a little confusing.  In all honestly, I am having enough trouble switching tracks within my own mind so that I can fully enjoy the end of the Night Prince series as I return to the world of Jeaniene Frost’s creation.  So, should I be making statements that make no sense in the context of the Karen Chance universe, please forgive me as I am visiting Jeaniene Frost’s universe and thus those statements might make sense in that context.  But given the fact...

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s DragonSworn

I have long been a Sherrilyn Kenyon fan and continue to be one.  Although the newest series did not live up to my expectations, I am a fan of her worlds.  I love the complex mythology and am constantly amazed by how varied her world has become.  It is a vast network of various mythologies and yet somehow they all seamlessly interact.  This is truly an amazing feat given that Egyptian and Greek and Sumerian Pantheons were never meant to mix.  This book promised explanations of Falcyn’s origins and perhaps even his orneriness.  This book did indeed explain Falcyon and his surliness. I love the Dark Hunter world as well as the Were Hunter and Lords of Avalon worlds.  I loved this book, as it returns to the stories that are as typical as a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon can be in that they are all atypical.  This book was a little bit difficult for me as there are so very many story lines and interrelationships to try and keep straight.  Even using the website as a cheat sheet, when the Lords of Avalon, dragon, were hunters and dark hunter worlds intersect things can become complicated and this book added in the Apollites as well.  Put a cameo in by Simi and you have all the parts of Kenyon’s world in one place.   It seems that this book...

Book Review for Kelley Armstrong’s Rituals (some Spoilers)

I have greatly enjoyed visiting Cainsville this past week.  Watching Olivia, Gabriel and Ricky navigate discovering their pasts and the roles they were expected to play was fun and learning along the way with them the paranormal origins and the crazy treatment of those who did not fit into either of the main groups was a crazy ride.  And I have looked forward to the conclusion of this story especially given the surprise at the ending of Betrayals when Ricky stepped aside to give Gabriel his shot with Olivia. Watching the group fight their past incarnations and the meddling of both sides was frustrating.  In many ways, the urge to just shake the main characters was high.  And yet as each of the succeeding third party scheme and design traps and pitfalls there is a underlying layer of hope–that these three can somehow beat fate.  Each of their previous incarnations are bitter and seem determined to make the same mistakes happen again while they advise Olivia, Gabriel and Ricky not to make the same mistakes.  It’s frustrating. All through the story, Gabriel’s continuing social dysfunction takes a large role in the story.  And seeing him struggle to be what Olivia needs is painful at times.  Having Gabriel’s mother return and Pamela escape from jail is not only unexpected it is shocking.  And in this last book, finding that the...
