Friday Mini Reviews #58: J.D. Robb, Sela Carsen & Nalini Singh



Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb ( In Death #9)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
New York cop Eve Dallas returns to face her most ingenious foe--a "secret admirer" who taunts her with letters... and kills without mercy.

An unknown bomber is stalking New York City. He is sending Eve Dallas taunting letters promising to wreak mass terror and destruction among the "corrupt masses." And when his cruel web of deceit and destruction threatens those she cares for most, Eve fights back. It's her city ... it's her job... and it's hitting too close to home.

Now, in a race against a ticking clock, Eve must make the pieces fit--before the city falls.

8/10
This is a book about a secret terrorist group which has its roots in the past. Very interesting to see what happened in the times of unrest in this futuristic world, plus I really enjoyed the villain. Roarke kicked major ass here, and so as Eve (which goes without saying). We also met Peabody's lovely, naive younger brother.

Эта книга о супер секретной террористической организации, чьи корни уходит в недалёкое прошлое метяжей и разгрома. Было интересно взглянуть на прошлое такого интересного футуристического мира, плюс мне здесь оень понравился злодей. Роарк надавал всем чертей в стиле Бонда, Ив как обычно вела себя шикарно, и мы также познакомились с милым и наивным младшим братом Пибоди.

 Runespell by Sela Carsen (Legends and Lore)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

In most fairy tales, the prince rescues the princess. It's not often she gets to return the favor.
Mai Westenra is pulled into a centuries-old quest for vengeance and magic, never realizing that she'll find love in the midst of danger.
Tyr Halvarsson has waited lifetimes to be rid of his curse. Resigned to his immortal half-life, one selfless act of humanity can redeem him. Or kill him.
Together, Mai and Tyr must work against time and magic to perform the runespell that will save their lives and give them a chance at love that lasts.

7/10
This is a short novella heavy on Scandinavian mythology, but also atmospheric and cute. The setting is lovely and feels Christmas-y, and both main characters are not prone to dramatics. Mai to my utter delight kicked butt majorly, and reminded me of fairy talish heroines from Michelle Diener's books.
* * *
Это короткая повесть, основанная на скандинавских мифах. Она полна характера, заснеженных пейзажей и капельки рождественского настроения. Главные герои не склонны к излишней драматизации и очень милы. Особенно мне понравилась май, которая лихо спасла задницу главного героя и напомнила своим стилем героинь Мишель Дьенэ.
 Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh (Psy-Changeling #2)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need & exquisite pleasure.

7.5/10
I admit I enjoyed the world-building in this book much more, but liked the main characters more in the first book. Really digging Faith's talent, which reminded me of Minority Report, and the whole conspiracy and the evil council are fascinating. Will be reading more!

Я признаюсь, то мне больше пришлось по вкусу построение мира в этой книге, ем роман главных героев. Саша и Люкас в первой книге были более интересными. Талант Фэйт очень был хорош и напомнил мне Minority Report c Томом Крузом. Заговор и вся схема Совета были выстроены круто. Буду читать дальше!

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
