Friday Mini-Reviews #56: J.D. Robb, Nalini Singh & Brandon Sanderson


Midnight in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #7.5)


Synopsis from Goodreads
An exclusive J.D. Robb short story, available only in ebook.

Eve's name has made a Christmas list, but it's not for being naughty or nice. It's for putting a serial killer behind bars. Now he's escaped and has her in his sights.

With her husband, Roarke, at her side, Eve must stop this madman from exacting his bloody vengeance - or die trying…

Audible US/UK | Amazon US/UK | Amazon kindle US/UK | The Book Depository

This is a very short read which would still give you a jolt. I also gives us insight in Eve's life before Roarke. Plus Dr. Mira is always appreciated. She is an exceptionally lovely character!

Это очень короткая повесть, однако она успеет пощекотать вам нервы. К тому же она даст возможность взглянуть на жизнь Ив до Рорка. Особенно мне понравилось камео-сцена от доктора Миры, которую я обожаю.

 Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (Psy-Changeling #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.
In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...
Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

Well, color me surprised! I was prepared not to like it, but it was actually really interesting. Lucas and Sascha are both enigmatic, and their attraction to each other is tangible. However, what lured me was the most fascinating world-building.

Ну вот и не ожидала я , честно говоря, что мне эта книга понравится. Однако, оба Люкас и Саша - притягательная, интересная, сильная пара. Но больше всего мне, конечно, понравилось футуристическое построение мира.

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn #1)


Synopsis from Goodreads
Once, a hero arose to save the world. A young man with a mysterious heritage courageously challenged the darkness that strangled the land.

He failed.

For a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has failed miserably.

Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and even the Lord Ruler himself. A new kind of uprising is being planned, one built around the ultimate caper, one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine, a street urchin who must learn to master Allomancy, the power of a Mistborn.

 Audible US/UK | Amazon US/UK | Amazon kindle US/UK | The Book Depository

Oh my goodness, where do I begin?! This is a totally epic fantasy with a shocking tearjerker of an ending. To deny that Sanderson is a genius of this genre after Mistborn is a pointless exercise. Recommended to everyone, especially to the fans of Sarah J. Maas.
* * *
Боже мой, с чего мне начать?! Совершенно эпическая книга с шокирующей концовкой, от которой наворачивались слёзы. Отрицать гений Сандерсона в жанре фэнтези после этой книги невозможно. Рекомендую всем любителям фэнтези и подросткового фикшна, особенно стиля Сары Дж. Маас.

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
