I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love this author, and I love the Patrick Bowers series. It’s been a few years since I randomly picked up the second book of The Bowers Files, and ever since then, I anxiously await for more writings from Steven James. Especially when Patrick Bowers is the star of the hour.

Every Deadly Kiss is the second prequel to the series. First, a quick back story for those of you mystery fans who shamefully have not picked up James’ books. We first meet FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers in The Pawn, followed by The Rook, The Bishop, The King, The Queen, and Checkmate. He’s a widower who is learning to battle the dangers of his work along with raising his late wife’s teen daughter, Tessa Ellis. It’s rarely easy for someone in law enforcement to raise their own child by themselves, but Tessa isn’t his daughter, but his stepdaughter of only a few months. In the end of the first prequel, we briefly meet Christy Ellis, who Pat will one day marry. Now in Every Deadly Kiss, we get to actually meet her, which is exciting. To me, anyway.

I loved all aspects of this book: the mystery, the relationship between Pat and the Ellis women, and the fact that a former love of Pat’s, FBI Agent Sharyn Weist, requests his assistance, which eventually causes a rip in his love life.

Steven James is definitely a natural storyteller (and he knows it!). The way he weaves the action, the tension, even light comedy, to form his stories is the way I hope readers view my writing. It’s taut and you can almost, almost, smell the blood or feel the abandoned building with your fingertips. It truly is rare that I can get that much into reading a book. Every Deadly Kiss isn’t my favorite in the series, but James does not disappoint. Several times I feel my heart beating out of my chest. A few times I laughed, especially when it’s bantering time with Pat and his best friend/sidekick, Agent Ralph Hawkins, who just might be my favorite character (sorry, Agent Bowers, I still love you too). The thing I like most about the prequels is that we still get to hear from Ralph. In Checkmate, he’s moving on to bigger and better things and I got the sad feeling that if there were more books, any appearances of Ralph would be more of a walk on. Thank goodness for these prequels!

I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good mystery. For some, it may take a bit getting used to because, in this series, it’s written in first and third person. It did confuse me when I first began to read The Rook several years ago. However, the storytelling is so crisp and well written, it didn’t take long for me to get used to the difference in POVs.

I hope we’ll get plenty more of Patrick Bowers (and Ralph) soon!

Brilliant Disguise: A Charlie McClung Mystery (The Charlie McClung Mysteries Book 1)

  • Title: Brilliant Disguise: A Charlie McClung Mystery
  • Author: Mary Anne Edwards
  • Print Length: 333
  • Publication Date: January 18, 2014
  • Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC
  • Language: English
  • Formats:  Kindle, Paperback
  • Goodreads
  • Genres: Mystery, Cozy Mystery

Brilliant Disguise is the first of five mysteries in the Charlie McClung series.  Marian is a widow still trying to come to terms with her husband’s death some years before. As a result, there are very few people she allows to get close to her. One of them is Jodie and the other Dianne. One night, the neighborhood hears a loud commotion. Along with the rest of the neighbors, Marian goes to check. It doesn’t take long to learn that Dianne had been shot. Cause of death: suicide. Or is it?

Charlie McClung is a new detective in town and doubts the validity of the chief’s suicide claims. In fact, there are many things about the police department that are questionable. Being new, McClung doesn’t know who to trust, with the exception of a grieving widow next door to his victim. Together, McClung unofficially joins forces with Marian to figure out exactly what went wrong the night Dianne died.

Brilliant Disguise is a very light, fun read. It’s told in the omniscient point of view, which is my least favorite when reading. Personally, I prefer the third person and being inside the mind of one character at a time. It took some time for me to be OK with the first person, and I suppose after reading more omniscient POVs, I’ll get used to it. It just confused me at first, especially when the entire series is a “Charlie McClung Mystery.” But that’s just me. I still enjoyed the read. Because I tend to spend my time reading about (and writing) hard-boiled crimes and science fiction, this delightful cozy mystery was a refresher.

The characters are likable, although I disliked Dan, Dianne’s husband. I won’t say why in case I end up giving away too much to the plot. But Marian and McClung were fun to get to know. I felt Marian and McClung had great chemistry throughout the course of the book. There were a couple of parts in Marian’s grief of losing her husband that seemed to be too much for the purpose of the story. But I was glad to know a man entered her life to help her let go after ten years. And he’s Irish, at that, which scored major points in McClung’s favor. And a bit of jealous of Marian.

Above all, the story held at a steady pace. The mystery itself was sound. There was quite a bit of twisting and turning involved. I had no idea how it would end, although I had a few presumptions here and there.

Brilliant Disguise was aptly named. I recommend this book to anyone that’s a fan of mysteries and or clean romance. This is definitely one book I can see being played on the Hallmark mystery channel.

No Man Left Behind #BookReview

  • Title: No Man Left Behind
  • Author: R.G. Miller
  • Print Length: 210
  • Publication Date: July 24, 2017
  • Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC
  • Language: English
  • Formats:  Kindle
  • Goodreads
  • Genres: Psychological Thriller

No Man Left Behind is R.G. Miller’s fourth novel and I have to say I enjoyed the plot line very much. It’s probably my favorite. Detective Isis Williams and her partner (both on the job and in life), Detective Annette Toni, are in search of a ruthless killer the media has named the Piggyback Killer. His MO is an unusual one and pretty cleverly created: he kills one person and once the body is beginning to decompose, he straps the body on the backs of his real targets using barbed wire. Ouch! Maybe it’s my deranged state of mind as someone who enjoys TV shows like CSI and movies like Saw, but I enjoyed most of the methods in which the serial killers Miller creates murders. He has a great imagination, and as in his previous novels, R.G. Miller does not hold back in his graphic detail.

The characters are consistent throughout the series. Isis is, as always, one to feel things deeply. She’s dedicated to her job and refuses to rest until she gets answers. Toni is more reasonable, although she can become a bit stubborn at times. I liked how during the course of the story the tension between the two was thick. The supporting characters at times are too much like Isis as far as sudden outbursts. I feel this should be limited to Isis’ trait because it gives her somewhat a softer side, trying to do more good in the world.

The only thing I really had a problem with: there were a lot of instances where I found the story to be a little “out there,” whether it’s police procedural or Isis’ and Toni’s personal life. There was a time when something terrible happens to Isis and another character witnessed the incident. Isis was blamed for it happening. I didn’t really care for that and it made me not like the blamer at all, although she wasn’t really a part of the story. I won’t be saying more in fear of giving away too much.

Basically, what you need to know is that Miller’s imagination is growing. His choice of plots is out of this world…in a good way. There are certain plot points that remain consistent in his four books of which I’m not a big fan; however, it doesn’t keep me from enjoying finding out what he has in store next.

Weeia on My Mind #bookreview @elleboca

When we first met Danni in Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia, she was in training at the Marshall Academy. Now she’s graduated and has been spending the last seven months in Paris on her first assignment. Her boss doesn’t like that she’s been assigned to work under him. She’s been living in a rodent-infested apartment until she’s given the opportunity to upgrade. And her first encounter with a new recruit, Sebastien, leaves much to be desired if you ask her.

While training Sebastien, they come across a case where an affluent couple’s necklace and painting were stolen. During their interview with the couple, Danni and Sebastien find that they have a detached attitude toward the theft. Once the items are mysteriously returned, the couple still seems to not care about the whys or whos their possessions were taken.

Aside from all that, Danni reconnects with a former interest and falls head first. He’s what most every girl wants to bring home to Mom and Dad: a bad boy.

I have to say I enjoy the first book in the Weeia Marshals series, Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia, the most. But that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy this one. I did. Weeia on My Mind kept me turning the pages even when I needed to put it aside. I loved the action, the mystery, and romance was a big part of the story as well.

Danni is a character to adore. She’s snarky, witty and fun. She knows her stuff and despite what others think of her, she’s out to prove any haters in her life that she knows her job and that she can do it well. Of course, she has a lot of trouble doing so, but luckily, after an awkward first meet with her new trainee, she found a fellow Weeia who actually doesn’t treat her like she’s weed to destroy.

Weeia on My Mind has just about everything you’d want in a story. Romance, action, intrigue, betrayal…you name it, and it’s there. It has a much darker tone than in the previous book but any fan of urban fantasy is bound to enjoy.

In my opinion, there is no need to read the books in order. But I say if you want to pick up a copy of Elle Boca’s novel, start with Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia, the first in the series. You’ll get to know Danni a little and by the time you read Weeia on My Mind, it’ll be like having a cup of coffee with a friend.

The Sixth Gate (The Gate Trilogy Book 1) #BookReview @ktmunson

As usual, K.T. Munson does well at creating a brand new world that we can get lost in. She definitely has a knack…it goes without saying…after all, her blog is entitled “Creating Worlds with Words.” Her worlds she creates are characters in itself, which is great in fantasy since the only way we can hope to imagine what we’re reading is to delve into the author’s words. After reading several of K.T. Munson’s novels, she’s never failed at delivering.

I read the prequel and was interested in learning more about the heroine, Elisabeth. Unfortunately, she didn’t show up until several chapters in. Although I knew that the story was primarily about her, I wondered where she was. After I did read several chapters containing her, I found the adult version (in the prequel, she’s a child) of Elisabeth very likable. She’s more grown up, but the curiosity of the child is still evident.

It took halfway through reading before the story really picked up. The most I knew was that something big was going to go down…eventually.  I could only tell that Ki was destined to destroy Elisabeth with his Sin Eater because she was half evil. There were a lot of other plot points to focus on and to remember throughout the course of the novel. I knew eventually everything would come together, whether it would be in this book or the ones following. Knowing that it was going to be a trilogy, I wasn’t sure how it would end. Thankfully, it all was tied together in a nice little bow but had room to grow for the sequels.

The other supporting/main characters were created well and flowed off of each other. I’m looking forward to getting to know them in the coming sequels. While the first book of the series was slow in taking off, I’m hoping to get even more action. I would also like to see fewer plots because this book had so many primary characters and so much going on, it was just hard to pinpoint where they were being led. Of course, I believe that was the purpose. Either way, I can’t wait to find out where K.T. will lead us in the other two books in her new Gate trilogy. But do we really have to wait until 2019, as promised at the end of the book?

A Mind to Kill #BookReview @nicholl06

  • Author: John Nicholl

  • Genres: Thriller, Psychological thriller

John Nicholl does it again. As usual, he delivers a gripping psychological thriller that you just can’t put down. His writing isn’t just a good book to read on a dark stormy night. It’s something you want to take the time and study. Using his background as a former police officer and child protection worker, Nicholl takes us on a tour inside the minds of the evil looming around us all.

In A Mind To Kill, Rebecca is set to take revenge on any man who dares to abuse innocent children like she once was. But soon, two of her victims are discovered and Rebecca must evade police capture as she continues her mission to set right to horrifying wrongs.

It’s hard to write stories involving child abuse. To know that it happens in real life is sickening enough, but to put it on paper? Forget about it. But John Nicholl isn’t afraid to tell the stories. It’s a good thing, too, because people need to be reminded it’s there. There are evil people in this world doing despicable things. But what happens to some of the survivors of such evil? This book will give one account.

A Mind to Kill will have you turning the pages. After one more chapter, you decide to put the book down for the night. But like the spider luring the fly to its web, John Nicholl lures you to keep on reading. We know straight off what the story is about and we know who the killer is. But still, there are some twists and turns to keep readers guessing.

As usual, the characters bounce right off the pages. The narration is told beautifully, mastering the showing rather than telling.

This is what a good psychological thriller is about. It’s no wonder why author John Nicholl is an international best seller. Be forewarned, however, that his work is not for the faint hearted. He digs deep into your heart and doesn’t let go.

Renegades picks up where Rebirth left off. Having read another series by Aaron Hodges, I think that The Praegressus Project three-parter is my favorite. In Rebirth, we meet Chris, Liz and a few other characters who were stolen from their lives by Dr. Halt in order for experiments to be run on them. This experiment produces dangerous results, as well as wings for our companions.

Chris, Liz and the others have already freed themselves and are on the run from Dr. Halt. Their journey is not an easy one as they have to learn to trust one another in order to ensure survival.

When writing a series with the same characters, it is extremely important to keep the same character rules in all the books. I feel Aaron Hodges did just that. When I read the first book, I wasn’t too crazy about Chris. It took me a long while to like him, but as the pages went on, the character grew as characters should. They all did. And in Renegades, they continued to grow and flourish.

Now that the introduction to the series is over, the second book gives you more action and more tension…it’s hard to put down. By the time I finished the book, I wanted more. It’s well written, tight and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the third and final installment, Retaliation.

Although this is the second book and a bunch of things happened in the first that readers should know, I feel you don’t have to read Rebirth in order to enjoy this one. Hodges does well in explaining through out what happened previously.

Disconnected #bookreview @nick_m_lloyd

  • Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy

This was definitely an interesting book. It wasn’t what I expected by any means. Asha Kharjal is a political advisor who knows how to rewire people’s subconscious and he’ll stop at nothing to so. He’s not the villain in the book. Asha attempts to do good with his skills, but like any decent story, he falls into hot water.

This is a very technical story, much like the writings of Michael Crichton. Since I don’t have a technical mind, I couldn’t grasp a good deal of it. There wasn’t a lot of explanation for the technical terms so it would throw me off. I did reading about enjoy skein space. It kind of reminds me of Assassin’s Creed’s animus. Skein space is where Asha and his “students” enter to connect to another person’s core and tap whatever message they want in order to sway the subjects to do what was needed. I would have enjoyed the skein space even more if the author had included in the beginning of the book what each color meant, whether black is for love or hate and so on. It is briefly mentioned, however, it wouldn’t have been easy to find the page to remind ourselves what exactly the colors meant.

Since it wasn’t always easy for me to grasp the technicality of the book, I focused more on the characters. They were written extremely well and with, for the most part, enough personality to fly right out of the pages. Polly seemed to have bounced around wildly and could have been toned down just a bit. I enjoyed the conflict with Sarah and Marcus, but Marcus’ mother (Polly) made me care less about Sarah and Marcus’ past relationship. Polly was too intrusive where they were concerned. It took me away from the actual plot.

The world building was great. Anytime they found themselves in the Congo, I felt I was right there with them. I could hear the sounds, see the sights. I think it was my favorite part of the story. And the Congo pieces were only subplots.

For the most part, Disconnected is a slow read. It’s only because of the technical pieces of the story, but it starts running when you’re about a quarter of a way through. The danger that danced around in the earlier pages is dialed up.

Synopsis

The wizard purge is in full swing. Sorcery is illegal in the modern, steam-powered Iron Empire. The Magistrate’s Black Guards hunt the uncivilized mages using mechanized armor and mysterious, clockwork weapons. The guards deliver their prisoners to the Butcher, Captain Vice. All wizards are tortured and executed as traitors to the state . . . with one exception.

That exception is Devin, an outbreak mage, and ex-artificer, a prince of machinery. The Magistrate exiles the youth over Vice’s protests to the wild kingdom of wizards and dragons. Devin only knows gears and springs, but his savage magic offers salvation if he can tame it. The exile must learn to harness his dangerous, new powers before the Butcher tracks him down to finish the job.

Follow Devin’s quest in Book One* of The Artifice Mage Saga. Join the fantasy steampunk brawl of metal vs. magic where sorcery is bloody, science is greasy, and nobody’s hands are clean.

My Review

When I first began this book, there were so many run-on sentences, I had a hard time reading the first few chapters. However, I happened to notice on Amazon, that author Jeff Bardwell uploaded a newer version than the one I originally had. So, I downloaded that version, and once I began to reread the first few pages, I could tell a major difference in writing.

I have to say that the story line itself held promise, but seemed to drag. The main character, Devin, is exiled in the beginning and he soon realizes that he’s a mage. He goes on a quest in search of someone who can teach him how to control his magic. There wasn’t a lot of action as I had hoped. Most of the storytelling seemed to be based on the characters’ thoughts which put me off. The paragraphs were also so lengthy. I found myself rereading several times to grasp what was happening, which took me longer than normal to finish.

I loved the imagery, though. When reading a fantasy story, I need to be able to picture the background. The world was built beautifully and had great word choices. However, I wasn’t too crazy about the poetic in the dialogue. It was too flowery than it needed to be when the book appeared to be full of darkness and evil. I get that the purpose was to fit the early times the story was set in. However, it just didn’t work for me.

Jeffrey Bardwell definitely had a great idea of a story full of mages and sorcery. Despite the hard editing done (and yes, I definitely could see the wonderful changes he had made), I rate this a three star. I didn’t hate the book but I didn’t love it either. I believe breaking up a few of the longer paragraphs, cleaning up the characters’ speech and adding a few action scenes here and there would have made a world of difference. It was a good effort. With more time, I believe this author could bring out more four or five stars to his writings. He has a good imagination.

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
