Science Fiction and fantasy has exploded into a multi -dimensional universe with offerings as vast, deep and varied as any star system. I love all the different genres and sub genres as long as they tell a good, well, written story. Reading is my Passion and my Prozac. It keeps me sane; it is a cleansing catharsis; a crucible from with I emerge a better person. I love quirky and different and creative blending of styles. So when I discovered Quincy Allen’s Chemical Burn and actually had the priv ...more

Quincy J Allen's brilliant sequel to "Blood Ties" picks up immediately where we last left off, with a dirigible full of heroes, and an enemy assassin on board, heading into a storm and certain conflict with the dreaded, evil Emperor Norton's minions off in the dark clouds, flying in cloaked zeppelins.

The action is almost immediate, and the lead flies fast and heavy in this most-worthy sequel.

Spanning the genres of the wild west, steam punk, and urban fantasy, Quincy Allen's universe draws you in with the first paragraph, and leads you to the end of every page wanting to know more about the journey of Jacob Joshua Lasater, Skeeter, Cole, and (most importantly to Jake), Lady Corina Danesti. You can easily say in a few sentences that it involves a war between the state of Texas and the free territories, with cloaked zeppelins flying above warring factions using gatling guns and set it ...more

Quincy Allen doesn't need me to tell you he's great. I'm going to do it anyway. This is the story of a Civil War hero who lost his legs, left arm, and left eye to a fatalistic charge up a hill. Rebuilt with steam and magic powered limbs, and a eyepiece that let's him control the amount of light that reaches his permanently dilated left eye, he rides for justice with a former Buffalo Soldier from the Free Territories, and a genius 16 year-old girl who understands principles of science that didn't ...more

Picking up right where we left off in Blood Ties, the author dives right into more breakneck action. In this volume we get into a lot of paranormal with magic and creatures coming out of the woodwork. The battles are incredibly plotted and fast paced but manage to develop the characters as well. We get a lot more of all the characters' backstory and it's great stuff. A romance blooms between Jake and the Countess but it's very mild (no sex) and slow burn. There is still plenty of unique steampun ...more

I enjoyed this streampunk novel and was hoping that the next was available already. It's not, but I am looking forward to it when it becomes available. Intriguing characters, good storylines, and streamline all make for a satisfying read. ...more

Unlikely Allies. Daring Foes. Airship Battles. Magical Spells. And More. Ok, so we are now at the second book in the Blood War Chronicles, aptly titled Blood Curse. If you have not read the first book, go buy Blood Ties and start there. Where Book One has the tale set in Denver, San Francisco and aboard a great dirigible, there is a major turn (and more than a few twists) taken for this part of the tale.

Our primary characters (Jake, Skeeter and Cole) have traveled from Denver back to San Franci

I first met Jake Lasater in the short story “Lasater’s Lucky Left” which was included in the anthology “The Best of Penny Dread Tales”. I immediately liked Lasater as a character and was intrigued to know more of his story and to read more of his adventures in this Wild West meets Steampunk setting created by author Quincy Allen.

Allen delivered well in his first book of the Blood War Chronicles, “Blood Ties”, but also alluded, both through the title and through the character development and acti

This is the second book in the series, and it takes up where the first book left off. it's a great steampunk novel, filled with dirigibles, clockwork arms and legs, magic and mysteries.

Jake has been hired to escort Lady Dănești to Denver, along with his companions Cole and Skeeter. Also along for the ride is a mechanical mercenary named Ghliss, who is a stone cold killer. Wanting to stop her is the evil Colonel Szilágyi and "President" Cromwell of Texas.

This is the second book of the Blood War Chronicles. I read the last book after having it described to me and I wondered how on Earth Quincy was planning to include everything I was told in just one book. He not only accomplished it, but did so in a way that left me completely hooked and wanting to know what in the world was going to happen to the characters in the next book. My only complaint was that book 2 wasn't already out when I finished book 1!

This series was one of my first forays into

BLOOD CURSE is book 2 in Quincy J. Allen's Blood War Chronicles.

BLOOD CURSE starts out after Jake Lasater, Cole McJunkins, Jake's ward Skeeter, and the mysterious Lady Danesti have left San Francisco following a pitched battle with the evil forces under the command of Colonel Szilagyi.

Jake and company are badly outnumbered and outgunned and are soon shot down over New Mexico while trying to return to Denver. However, knowing that the Colonel will stop at nothing to capture (and possibly kill) t

This book starts out running and doesn't let up. Jake, Cole, and the crew are running for their lives with the nefarious COL Szilagyi after them. After nearly losing everything, they shelter in a small town that borders on another, far beyond what Jake could have imagined to exist in the world. Their time there is short-lived, however, as the war they are fighting keeps following them no matter where they go.

I highly enjoyed this book. It has adventure, fun characters, an interesting mix of tech

What a thrill ride! Jake, Lumpy and the gang have a hair-raising adventure. From the moment the book starts, you get right into the action. The only down time is when Jake finds love, she just happens to be a vampire. There is even a twist within a truce that was formed in the heat of battle. All I can truly say is that I love this book.

This book was so good. It picked up directly where the last one left off and didn't miss a beat of action. It was fast paced and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Definitely looking forward to number three. ...more
