Friday Mini Reviews #51: Jim Butcher, J.D. Robb & Tijan

Cold Days by Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden #14)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad. Because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard.

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill.

Guess which Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own…

His soul.

Well, thank God, Harry is back on the horse! Last book made me worried he was losing his groove. As usual, lots and lots of cool action, impossible situations in which Harry's life is getting shittier and shittier...Still, better him than us, right? So enjoyed this one, peeps!

 Ну слава богу, Гарри снова на коне! Последняя книга заставила меня поволноваться о том, что серия начала скатываться в никуда, но это просто был глюк. Гарри продолжает вляпываться в сложнейшие ситуации, а вот найти выход из них очень уж непросто. Кстати, Маб мне здесь понравилась! Прекрасная книга!

Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #3)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

When Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the murder of a top model, she is putting her career on the line, because the prime suspect is her best friend. Eve's investigations lead her into the glamorous world of high fashion.

One of my favorite books in series because of Leonardo and Mavis. I so love them, they are a couple of impossible romantics! Also, Eve solidly establishes that every time there is a party she ends up in a sorry state, which makes me giggle. Read on, peeps!
* * *
Одна из моих любимых книг серии из-за Леонардо и Мэвис - они оба неисправимые романтики! К тому же, у Евы Даллас формируется привычка влезать в неприятности каждый раз когда в её честь что-то празднуется, что меня заставляет тихо смеятся. В обзем, продолжайте читать, дамы и господа!

 Fallen Crest Family by Tijan (Fallen Crest High #2)


Synopsis from Goodreads

Samantha and Mason are together. Everyone knows it. Not everyone is dealing with it. While Mason’s ready to give them the middle finger, there’s one not going away. Her mother. Threats are issued. Ultimatums are given. Even blackmail is used, but only Samantha can put a stop to Analise. However, when a trauma from her past is triggered, she may not have the courage or strength to do what’s needed. If she doesn’t, Mason’s future could be destroyed.
 Audible US/UK | Amazon US/UK | Amazon kindle US/UK | The Book Depository

Drama-llama is rearing its ugly head! Oh the bullying and blackmailing and eye-rolling! Seriously, this book needed popcorn, it was so much like a soap opera. Who writes this crack?! Don't take it seriously, guys, but read it as an addictive entertainment. That's all.
* * *
 О_о, ну драматизм, вааще! Прямо как в индийских фильмах! В общем, читать только с попкорном и закатывая глаза каждые десять секунд. Развлекательная мыльная опера со слезами, скандалами, шантажом и прочими тривиальными мелочами американских городков в дикой глухомани.

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
