But I already read Phantom Universe (The Summer Chronicles) by Laura Kreitzer, which I really enjoyed, so I thought I’d take a gamble. And I did not regret this.
Eventhough there is enough I missed since I didn’t read the first 3 books, I was able to pick up on the story real fast. Fallen Legion is a fast paced story, with interesting characters who I can’t wait to get to know better. Laura’s writing makes sure you get pulled into the story and will not let you go untill the last page. She makes sure you get immersed into this world of Angels, Gods and Emperyean Guards.
After reading Fallen Legion I will definitely read the rest of the Timeless series, starting with Shadow of the Sun.(less)

And what if the world did not know evil won but was convinced good had won. Well that is the world created by Blalock.
I always like find a new author who has created a new world for me to discover. Eventhough the fight between good and evil isn’t quite new, the world created by Blalock is. Not only does evil rule without people knowing it, the story is partly set in an advance virtual reality.
I really enjoyed Traitor Angel. It is a fast read, with lots of plotting, action and leaves a lot of questions unanswered. It felt like this was a build up to a great finale with the third installment.
I do recommend to read the first book in this series, AngelKiller, first. I haven’t read AngelKiller yet and at times I really felt I missed something. So I will be reading AngelKiller real soon. (less)

Het verhaal gaat over Emma le Roux, die een bodyguard genaamd Lemmer inhuurt, nadat ze is ontsnapt aan drie mannen, die bij haar wilden inbreken. Ze is vastbesloten haar broer te vinden, die al jaren vermist is. Maar in een tv reportage heeft zij hem herkend in de verdachte van de moord op een medicijnman en vier stropers. Samen gaan ze op zoek naar aanwijzingen.
Dit was een heerlijk boek om te lezen, het leest makkelijk weg, maar het is daarnaast ook een goed geschreven verhaal vol actie en spanning en sterke dialogen. Ik ga zeker meer boeken lezen van Deon Meyer en heb gelukkig 13 Uur al klaar liggen. (less)

In the small town of Harmony strange things are happening. In an old house a man disappears and his girlfriend is attacked by something she can only discribe as a spider dog. And these are not the only people who get attacked and a man is on his way to Harmony with nothing good on his mind.
Spook House is a fast read. It was really hard to sat the book aside once I started reading. Micheal West makes sure you are sucked into the tory and just doesn’t let go. I was sitting on the edge of my seat just to see if they would survive. The writing is smooth and gives the story that extra spooky atosphere which makes this such a great Haloween read. Also I liked the characters, I didn’t have a moment where I thought they should die just because of the stupidity that characters may have in horror stories and I am good to be cheering for someones death when it comes to stupidity and characters.
Allthough this is the third book in a series that’s not a problem to enjoy this story. Spook House is the first book I read by Michael West and I absolutely enjoyed this one and will definitely be picking up his other books.(less)

Dan Grey works as a homicide detective and dreams of a big break (or a sexy case as he calls it) so he can get his Amber badge. And this happens when he gets three homicides in the same week. Working to solve these cases with limited resources Dan will find out not everything is what it may seem.
Dan Grey is a character that can annoy the hell out of me but not enough that I dislike him. He is a good detective with his heart in the right place that has some serious jealousy issues. He wants to get up the corporate ladder and the sooner the better.
I liked the world created by mr. Shean. This whole world about a corporate police department is a very unsettling thought, I mean it isn’t great to know the ploce will solve crimes only to make profit. The police here also think that they are better then the other just by their rank and please don’t let anybody higher in rank get on your case because that is bad. Yeah teamwork isn’t a big part here in solving crimes.
I really did get annoyed by the fact that seemingly a lot of people here are very beautiful and this isn’t stated ones but numerous times.
Due to the horrific crimes and the strong language in this book I can definitely say this is not a book for everyone, but if you can handle it I can recommend this to you because it is a fast read, a good story in a great, but unsettling world.(less)
