This book was difficult to get into if you hadn't read the first one. There were several references to the first book that were not explained. Having said all of that, this was a very fast-paced exciting sequel to the first book. I enjoyed watching Denali gradually grow and make some mistakes along with some good decisions. The strength that she retains is amazing and I enjoyed how Miss Banks weaves all of this together. A little far-fetched sometimes, but this is urban fantasy, right? If you liked the first one, enjoy this one to the hilt!

I have really enjoyed this series so far about the werewolves, fae and vampires. This is the third book and I started out a little wary of this series. However, I've thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and excitement. This book I think has built well onto the first two books. Try it , you'll like it!

Ilona Andrews has done wonders with this series. Kate Daniels is a tough, smart and mercurial warrior in this world of supernatural players. This book in this series is one that will keep you rapt if you are truly an urban fantasy fan.

This book is a very goo composite of 4 great writers. I have read2 of the four now and love what they write. If you're wanting to try something new, this can help with making some of that decision. Excellent sample of each of the four.

Damali is a very believable Neteri - vampire huntress. She's tough, but has a vulnerable side to her. Lot's of action, which is what I like. Excellent read for an urban fantasy lover!


No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden
Review Date: 1/17/2020


This was an excellent account of how Seal Team 6 worked to get along with the CIA and other groups and agencies to get to Osama Bin Laden (or in the book, "UBL"). These men and women are dedicated to keeping America safe from harm and this is one of those times that it is obvious that they do a great job. Unbelievable the dedication and hours of study and practice that goes into a mission like this. Great book!

This book was overall a good read. It was a little slow to develop all of the plot and characters, but was good with the "flashback memories" and recollections of the characters to fill in history. Sometimes distracted from the plot, but always helpful. The last 3-5 chapters were page turners! Amazing on the action, plot and final climax!

If you like difficult to solve, twist and turn murder mysteries, this is for you! Tess G. does a great job in this book of building the story. If you have read Rizzoli and Isles before this, it is excellent in getting deeper into their lives as well. Enjoy the book when you get it. Tough to put down.

This is really a mind twisting thriller! You don't really know who did what until the last several pages of the book. Well written by Coben and he does a very good job with this book.


Thunderstruck

Larson did a great job with this book. He weaves the tales separately of the two main characters and then shows how they very specifically intertwine to create Thunderstruck! This is a great non fiction read.

This is an excellent read. Harper Blaine is getting into more of her own past. A little dicey but if you have read any of this series it is really cool!

This is a very good sequel to the first book. I hated that she was not able to stay with Donovan Caine. I'm not so sure about Grayson. This is an excellent serires and proves to be very interesting writing.

Helpful Score: 1


Gin Blanco meets a very deadly enemy in Salina Dubois. Some romantic intrigue and a lot of mystery and subterfuge. Gin is as pretty and calulating as always, but this has to be one of Estep's better books to date. You'll love it.
