Friday Mini Reviews #6 - Fair Game, Blade Song, The Restorer

Fair Game by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega #3)


Synopsis from Goodreads
It is said that opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son—and enforcer—of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant Alpha. While Anna, an Omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.

When the FBI requests the pack’s help on a local serial-killer case, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston to join the investigation. It soon becomes clear that someone is targeting the preternatural. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer’s sights…

This is one of the best Briggs's books I've read in a very long time, peeps. It actually restored my faith in her writing and made everything shiny and new again. Driven, action-packed, it grabs your attention from the first scene and would not let go until the smashing finale. Heartily recommended.

C огромнейшим удовольствием читала Честную Игру. Просто превосходно написано, красиво и очень динамично. Моя вера в мастерство Патриции Бриггс после неудачных последних двух книг восстановлена. Книга захватывает внимание с первой сцены и не отпускает до шикарнейшей концовки. Читать очень даже надо!

Blade Song by J.C. Daniels (Colbana Files #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads
Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

Blade Song had an amazing drive of early urban fantasy books, for example, the likes of Anita Blake, Kate Daniels or Shifters series by Rachel Vincent, and it was a pure pleasure to read it. Gripping, chilling story, a very brave, down on her luck heroine, obsessed with her sword and some evil vampires and crazy shifters to spice things up. Please, do read it!

Вот читала я эту книгу и с ностальгией вспоминала раннюю Аниту, Кейт Дэниэлс и серию Оборотни от Рэйчел Винсент. Классическое городское фэнтэзи, хорошая история, социопаты оборотни и вилланы-вампиры, а также храбрая и нищая главная героиня, которая жить не может без своего меча... Читайте!

The Restorer by Amanda Stevens (Graveyard Queen #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads

Never acknowledge the dead. Never stray far from hallowed ground.

Never get close to the haunted.

Never, ever tempt fate.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now.

Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

O_O! That was so good! Atmospheric and chilling is what you would call it. One of the best ghost stories I've ever read, with loads the Southern American charm and very deeply buried old secrets. This is one of the few series where I knew straight away I'd love every single book in it. Very much recommended.

С огромным удовольствием читала Рестовратора! Прекраснейшая атмосфера южных штатов Америки, холодных призраков и глубоко погребённых тайн. Это одна из немногих серий, которую я на 100% уверена, я прочитаю от корки до корки. Рекомендую от всей души!

Three great books - and I agree with your comments! Fair Game was awesome - one of the big game changers in that world...
The atmosphere in The Restorer was so creepy too. Glad you liked them! :-)

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
