This Dame for Hire by Sandra Scoppettone
This Dame for Hire

MartyV, May 2, 2015

I love the language, the fashions, and the mystery. Being a child of the 1940s, the attitudes of that far away time came to life for me, once more. Miss Quick is a combination of Sam Spade and Nancy Drew ... loved it. I'll look for more of Sandra Scoppettone's books.

Heritage of Shannara #04: The Talismans of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Heritage of Shannara #04: The Talismans of Shannara

MartyV, April 29, 2015

New characters were added during this final installment, each with a small mystery surrounding them. Love, hate, despair and hope were all part of the engaging stories in this volume. The ending was a total mystery, right up to the next to last chapter; and the last chapter is more like an epilogue. A fitting end to a great saga.

Isaac Asimov's Caliban: Utopia (Ace Trade Pbk) by Roger M Allen

MartyV, February 26, 2015

Written by Robert MacBride Allen, this story was very much in the style of the late Isaac Asimov. It explores the possibility of robots who aren't made with the Three Laws of Robotics. The story didn't stay on track as well as Asimov would have done and the book was full of typos, something a book of his would never have. Overall, I'm glad to see something Asimov was considering and am happy to have read it.

Patrimony: A Pip & Flinx Adventure by Alan Dean Foster
Patrimony: A Pip & Flinx Adventure

MartyV, January 28, 2015

Years ago I read one of the earlier novels in this series, so finding this adventure in our library's book sale I had to buy it, and am glad I did. Flinx searches for his father, accompanied by Pip. Naturally they survive the journey to a new, inhospitable planet, but the results of his trip were surprising. This is a fun, lightweight read.

Turn Coat (Dresden Files #11) by Jim Butcher
Turn Coat (Dresden Files #11)

MartyV, January 19, 2015

Just when you think Dresden is going down, something or someone comes to his aid. This episode expands on the conspiracy theory introduced a couple of episodes ago. It also introduces new friends, new enemies and a few frenemies. Jim Butcher is a master at expanding the unseen universe existing here with our own.
