Friday Mini Reviews #63: D.B. Reynolds, J.D. Robb & Brandon Sanderson




Christian by D.B. Reynolds (Vampires in America #10)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
Texas . . . the heart of a territory that stretches from the golden deserts of New Mexico to the turquoise shores of the Florida Keys. It’s big, it’s rich, and it’s the next battleground for some of the most dangerous vampires in the world.

Christian Duvall . . . charismatic and powerful, and determined to claim the South as his own. But with old enemies and new fighting to stop him, victory suddenly takes on a brutal, and far more treacherous, edge. Because what one of his enemies wants more than anything else already belongs to Christian . . . and her name is Natalie.

Natalie Vivant Gaudet . . . brilliant and lovely, a strong Southern woman who can unravel the most intricate financial schemes designed to swindle and steal. She loves her complex job and the simplicity of her life. And then she meets Christian. He’s beautiful, he’s complicated, and she’ll fight to keep him alive.

With allies trying to kill him, and enemies readying a horde of zombie vampires to roll over all of Texas, it will take every shred of Christian’s power and Natalie’s determination to win this war and give North America a brand new Lord of the South.

Yummy read, peeps! As usual, I couldn't help but enjoy the modern vampire mafia-like wars, strong heroines and a really wonderful hero. Very dynamic, fast read for fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy alike. Christian had a great banter going with his friend Marc, and an easy interaction with Natalie. Recommended.

Вкуснвя книжка, как и всё, что выпускает Д.Б. Рейнольдс. Я с удовольствием читала про вампирские войны в стиле мафиозных разборок, сильных героинь и харизматичных героев. Классный диалог Кристиана со своим другом и тёплые разговоры с Натали. Прелестно просто, что в книгах этого автора к женщинам относятся как к равноправным партнёрам. Рекомендую.



Seduction in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #13)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
She was 23 and already in love. She was certain he'd be handsome. She would be dead before midnight. Bryna Bankhead carefully dressed for her date with the wonderful Dante, a man she's only ever spoken to online. By the end of the night, rose petals are scattered, poetry has been quoted - and Bryna has been murdered.

8.5/10
I actually loved this one! Pretty interesting investigation, and there is even some sword fighting in the end. So enjoyable. Definitely one of better books in this series.

Мне очень понравилась эта книга! Интересное расследование, и даже бой на мечах в концовке! Одна из лучших книг серии, безусловно!


The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn #3)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

Tricked into releasing the evil spirit Ruin while attempting to close the Well of Ascension, new emperor Elend Venture and his wife, the assassin Vin, are now hard-pressed to save the world.This adventure brings the Mistborn epic fantasy trilogy to a dramatic and surprising climax as Sanderson's saga offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith and responsibility.

 5/10
I was so angry with the conclusion of trilogy, so angry! What a depressing read where basically almost everyone dies. I felt cheated because the characters went through an astounding amount of hardship and in the end it was all for nothing, and that's when the reader has been invested in them from the first book. Argh! I think if I knew Sanderson's propensity for books which make you feel suicidal, I wouldn't have given The Hero of Ages such a low rating, but in this case I was too pissed off to look at it rationally.
* * *
Я была так рассержена на эту книгу! Ну очень неприятная концовка! В общем, почти все умирают, и это при том, что главные герои прошли через невероятное количество трудностей и горя, чтобы дойти до конца. А оказалось, что зря. Вашу мать! Если бы я знала, что от книг Сандерсона хочется обычно резать вены, то я бы восприняла Героя Эпох по-другому, но так как концовка застала меня врасплох, то оценка книги у меня на одних эмоциях.

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
