Breaking Creed

Breaking Creed
Posted 26 January 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review This was my first book by Alex Kava, and it won’t be my last.  Breaking Creed is the first novel in the new Ryder Creed series.  Kava’s Maggie O’Dell (from the series with the same name) is also in this book.  Even though I haven’t read the other series, there was no problem with […]

My Review Fractured Innocence is the fantastic sequel in the IFICS series.  It is is sci-fi, dystopia, romance, and thriller all wrapped up in one cyborg package.  It is also a far darker and more intense read than was the first, Freak of Nature.  In this book, Kaitlyn has come into her own and living her new life in […]

My Review I am a big fan of Julia Crane’s writing.  There is a lovely flow to it and the characters are wonderful.  I read her Keeghan’s Chronicles series last summer and was mesmerized by her style of writing.   The world of the IFICS series is very different from that of Keeghan’s Chronicles, but no less engaging.  Where the […]

My Review Because of You is the first in the Coming Home series by Jessica Scott.  I recently discovered Jessica Scott through conversation with another author and was very excited to read this book.  Jessica is an active duty Army company commander, and that is the reason I so wanted to read her books.  I was an […]

My Review The War God’s Men is a dramatized account of the events surrounding the First Punic War between ancient Rome and Carthage.  As a long-time Latin student fascinated with Roman history, the concept of this book truly appealed to me.  Both historical and fictional characters and events were blended within the story with some slight deviations […]

The Blood Gate

The Blood Gate
Posted 7 September 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Blood Gate is an epic fantasy tale with rich characters, tons of action and intrigue, romance, and great storylines.  The world the author created for this book was extraordinary, with a created mythology of dieties and religion that was somehow still fully believable, despite being so far out of our own reality […]

East Wind Returns

East Wind Returns

My Review Being an Army vet, I absolutely love military fiction of all kinds.  East River Returns is a unique take on the genre in that it is an interesting blend of actual history and a “what if” path that history could have taken.  The story centers around John Worth, a photo recon pilot in […]

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam

My Review I have read a lot of Vietnam War-era fiction, many by war veterans, and Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam is by far one of my favorites.  Admittedly, there was probably an extra level of enjoyment on my part because of the fact that I spent almost 14 years as an active duty Army […]
