A Line in the Ice by Jamie Craig A Review
admin / August 20, 2011
I generally don’t read science fiction, sticking more to the mystery/thriller/suspense genre, but I’ve been trying to branch out and read things out of my comfort zone.  So when I had an opportunity to read A Line in the Ice by Jamie Craig, I welcomed the opportunity. I found the premise quite interesting.  In the frozen tundra of the Earth, a rift between worlds had opened and creatures are seeping through intent on having their way with the entirety of the Earth. A multinational force of ultra-trained soldiers acts in this arctic wasteland as a[..]
In Leah’s Wake by Terri Giuliano Long – A Review
admin / August 16, 2011
The manner in which Terri Giuliano Long has woven the tale of In Leah’s Wake is perhaps best described as a tapestry of words. I read the book while on holiday and it was the perfect read for my travels in that it provided several things.  It offered a very tight story with engaging characters.  Secondly, it was a quick read which was surprising given the plot and subject of the book.  Since it was a quick read and as I was on vacation, two other people on the trip read the book (during our[..]

Iron House – John Hart – A Review
admin / July 29, 2011
I discovered John Hart a few years back.  I read his first book and loved it.  I was even more pleased when I learned he had a second book out and I was able to dive right in.  Then, as an added bonus, I learned his third, The Last Child, was soon to be released.  Then I had to wait for number 4. It was worth the wait.  Through each of his 4 books, Hart has progressed to what I would simply call a master storyteller.  In Iron House, Hart strays a bit beyond his[..]
Defending Jacob – William Landay – A Review
admin / July 14, 2011
So I was in Mobile, Alabama recently for a brief business trip.  During my visit, I wandered into the most delightful little bookstore on Dauphin Street.  The bookstore, Bienville Books, is just amazing.  Lots of new and many used (many of these signed) were to be found on the two floors.  The staff was over the top wonderfully helpful.  I found several books and after paying was told I could have an ARC (Advance Reader’s Copy).  There were many from which to chose, but after asking for a recommendation in the legal thriller genre, the[..]
