Pale Demon by Kim Harrison
Pale Demon

curlygurl, January 1, 2012

I have read all of the books in this series and have to admit I'd been disappointed with the last few books. So this was a nice surprise. While parts of the plot are predictable there are plenty of twists in this book. Also the main character, Rachel, seems more the like the witch we've all come to know and love. For those who have not read the series, I do recommend it. The last few books were not bad, but in this book Harrison seems back on point with the characters moving in a more interesting direction. This book left me wanting for the next installation in the series!

Indigo Court #1: Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn
Indigo Court #1: Night Myst

I enjoy this author's other series and this first book did not disappoint. I think she did a good job of developing the characters. I was worried, at first, that the dialogue would have the same 'banter' as her other books, but was pleasantly surprised. While her writing style is recognizable, the characters in this book were not reminiscent of those in her other books. I look forward to reading more!

Queen of the Orcs #02: Clan Daughter by Morgan Howell
Queen of the Orcs #02: Clan Daughter

curlygurl, April 4, 2008

This book is the second in the trilogy, picking up where the first left off. Howell takes us deep into the world of the Orcs. Here we witness the strength of matriarchs within this strange society. Dar takes many risks to find her way in this world. Just when it seems she has found a place for herself, she must risk it all in order to save her new kin. I liked this book even better than the first!

No Humans Involved by Kelley Armstrong
No Humans Involved

curlygurl, April 1, 2008

Here is the latest in Kelley Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" series. As with the other books we follow one of Armstrong's "fringe" characters in her own adventure. Jaime Vegas is a necromancer, who has made a name for herself as a medium. She is on a job for a television special to raise the ghost of Marylin Monroe, when she stumbles onto a situation that she's never encountered before. She relies on the help of friends old and new help the helpless.
Fans will be happy to see Jeremy Danvers finally come into her life and make his move. I recommend reading these books in order as characters and storylines from other books are often referenced.

Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant by Daniel Tammet
Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant

curlygurl, March 31, 2008

This book is the autobiography of Daniel Tammet, an autistic savant. Daniel's being a savant is enough on its own to make him a rarity, but add to it that he suffers from autism and its quite a remarkable story. While few people who suffer from autism will experience the independence and successful social relationships that Daniel has, his story is still an inspiration.
