Library Languishers Series #2

1
2

GR Synopsis

It is autumn 1981 when the inconceivable comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenage boy is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.

But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night....

My Comments

I don't know how this book managed to scare me but it did and that is why, I wanted a copy of my own. Here's my review!


The Library Languishers Series features a book that languishes in my physical library. The picture quality will always be sucky. Depend on it!

Giveaway & Review for Onyx Webb by Andrea Waltz & Richard Fenton @OnyxWebb

Reblogged from: sherrysniderfundin

Review:

Onyx Webb: Book Two - Andrea Waltz, Richard Fenton

I am excited to continue the Onyx Web series. The writing style, with each person telling their story had me confused in the beginning, but now that I am getting the hang of it, I am loving it.

 

The combination of mystery and murder, hauntings and ghosts, the paranormal and supernatural, keeps the action and suspense moving right along.

 

The complex characters have become familiar to me and I am very curious and concerned for their well being. They all have flaws that make some of their decisions seem harsh and wrong.

 

I knew someone would die. I thought it would be Onyx and I sure didn’t see the authors taking the route they did. Great job throwing that twist in there and I think they will have many more surprises in store for me.

 

I am loving Katherine, and her solution to the horrific goings on at the orphanage seem like the only way to go.

 

The story gets heavier, more complicated, and I get more and more involved with each page I read.

Review:

Onyx Webb (Book One: Episodes 1, 2 & 3) - Andrea Waltz, Richard Fenton

The tagline on the cover of Onyx Webb hooked me – Think life is precious now? Just wait until you’re dead – and I had to read Book I by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz. I am just hoping I made the right decision, because there are more books to come and I will not learn the ending here.

 

Onyx Webb is a paranormal thriller that will have you questioning the most important things in “life”. If you are a fan of character driven stories, this one is for you.

 

Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz do a wonderful job of building complex characters that are well developed and I quickly found my favorites and the villains. As each characters story grows, so does my interest.

 

We have kidnappers and serial killers, ghosts and visions. What is real? You will have to read Onyx Webb to find out for yourself.

 

There is more than one villain walking the streets and you never know who you can trust. People are not always what they seem.

 

Onyx is not your average child and her life took a turn for the worst when she met him.

Men – they can be the life of you or the death of you.

 

Onyx Webb, Book I laid a solid foundation.There is so much going on, that I feel I will not be able to rest until I know the whole story. Thank goodness Book II is out and waiting for me to grab a copy of my own.

Review:

Onyx Webb: Book Three: Episodes 7, 8, 9 by Richard Fenton (2015-10-22) - Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz

I am so glad I already have Book III, so I didn’t have to wait to find out what was coming next. Each book has gotten better, for me. I am hooked and this is one series I will read to the end.

 

Started right out with a murder. How can I not love that?

 

So much action and the suspense climbs to a new level. Sometimes it seems the characters have no redeeming qualities, but the bad they do is forced on them, other times they feel obligated, want revenge or to avenge the wrong done to someone they know. I feel I need to let go of my attempts to judge them and try to walk a mile in their shoes. 

 

And now for the tragedy…

 

OMG I can’t believe the authors did that!!! Fabulous, horrific! I am so sad for…

 

The developing story has reached a mind blowing level…engrossing, nailbiting, sit on the edge of your seat intense reading…unputdownable…

 

It is rare that I read a series that keeps getting better and better but Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton have far surpassed my expectations with Onyx Web and I can’t ask for any more than that!

Library Languishers Series #1





GR Synopsis:

Andrew was one of Earth's first house robot domestic servants—smoothly designed and functional. But when Andrew started to develop special talents which exceeded the confines of his allotted positronic pathways, he abandoned his domestic duties in favour of more intellectual pursuits. As time passed, Andrew acquired knowledge, feelings and ambitions way beyond anything ever experienced by any other mechanical men. And he found himself launched on to a career which would bring him fame fortune—and danger. For a robot who wants to be human must also be prepared to die...

In the Bicentennial Man, Isaac Asimov returns to his first and most enduring love—robotics. The result is a brilliant book of first-class entertainment and mind-spinning ideas which confirm Asimov's supreme status as Grand Master of science fiction.

My Comments:

I bought this anthology from Kitabain. It is an awesome place with books that you won't find in most bookstores. It is also my go-to bookstore for when I am looking for anthologies or when I need to shop for books because the craving kicks in. 

The Library Languishers Series features a book that languishes in my physical library. The picture quality will always be sucky. Depend on it!

Giveaway & Review – Threading The Needle by Gabriel Valjan @GValjan @NouveauWriter

Reblogged from: sherrysniderfundin

Review:

Threading the Needle - Gabriel Valjan

I was drawn into the Roma Series because of the fabulous covers and the storyline.

It made me think of Kathy Reichs and the the TV series, Bones, with her forensic anthropology, only for a character that specializes in forensic accounting.

We continue our adventure in Milan, Italy and bullets will fly.

MY REVIEW

 

The Roma Series continues in Threading The Needle by Gabriel Valjan. I am excited to see what Bianca and her band of cohorts will encounter next in Milan, Italy.

 

We are back with some familiar characters and the stakes are higher than ever. Conspiracy is alive and well.

 

The infighting between the police for territory and jurisdiction and the political machinations dog down their investigation into the murders and mystery. Politics is a dirty business and heads will fall, bodies too.

 

Gotta be pretty sharp to run the gauntlet and find the answers.

 

A little manipulation can be in order, and it does keep me on the hook as I try to figure out why they do what they do sometimes..

 

As the mystery unfolds, I think Bianca, a forensic accounting cyber nerd, has the answers, but…

 

Sometimes there is so much going on, I lose track of where I’m going. Am I purposely being mislead so I can’t find the answers?

 

Is it just me that I feel like I am being schooled rather than on a journey for my own entertainment? If you enjoy step by step police procedurals and some a glimpse into Italy’s history, this is for you.

 

I love the concept of this series so much, I wonder why I am having such difficulty with it. Is it because of the location…Italy and all that entails, their customs and history?

 

I took a little time and read other things between the books, but to see if it makes a difference, I will be diving right into Turning To Stone, Book IV. I believe these books can stand alone, but if you want to know all the details of the continuing characters, start at the beginning.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Threading The Needle from Gabriel Valjan.
