Friday Mini Reviews #84: Michelle Sagara, J.D. Robb & Emma Holly



Cast in Moonlight by Michelle Sagara (Chronicles of Elantra #0.5)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
Barely a teenager, Kaylin Neya is a thief, a fugitive and an attempted assassin. She also has a smart mouth, sharp wits and mysterious markings on her skin. All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra - if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks!

 8/10
This was my introduction to Michelle Sagara, and I was instantly hooked. Vivid world-building, fascinating magic, Kaylin Neya herself, - this was such a delicious start of the series, that I started book #1 straight away! Recommended.

Это была моя первая книга от Мишель Сагары, и я сразу же влюбилась в авторский стиль. Красочное построение мира, сложная магия, интересные расы, сама Кейлин Нэйя, - всему этому пиршеству я противостоять не смогла, и сразу же начала слушать остальные книги серии. Рекомендую.


Missing in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #29.5)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads
Aboard the Staten Island ferry, a tourist comes across something she shouldn't have seen - something someone needs kept very quiet. Soon no one can find her. But if she didn't jump, and she's not on board, where is she?

Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called to the scene and is quickly faced with a shocking web of lies. With time running out and a deadly trail of intimidation and revenge emerging, Eve and her team must find out just what was seen on that ferry . . .

 7.5/10
I love how Nora always tries to play with her novellas just a little bit more. It's not about plausibility, but instead about having fun while writing a short story. In this regard Missing in Death has certainly delivered. Recommended.

Я люблю как Нора Робертс всегда старается немного поиграть со своими повестями и завести их в кросс-жанры. то у неё происходит что-то паранормальное, но в этот раз она залезла в шпионский роман. В общем, было весело и интересно. Рекомендую.

 Lord and Master by Emma Holly (The Billionaires #3)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

My name is Mia Beck, and I’m a lucky girl . . .

Billionaire Damien Call didn’t magically stop being moody just because Jake and I moved in with him. Fortunately, I've devised a strategy. I inherited a share in an exclusive erotic club, and they’re beta testing a role-play game. Surrounded by period perfect detail, members pretend to be Edwardian lords and ladies . . . or stable masters, if they prefer.

By switching up our dynamic, I'm hoping to smooth the snags in our otherwise fabulous menage. Neither of my lovers has trouble opening his heart to me, but I suspect Damien would benefit from exploring his dominant side, and he and Jake could be easier with each other.

That’s my goal anyway. My plan might go up in smoke when Jake and Damien concoct their own scheme for me!

7.5/10
Not as sassy as Beck & Call, and the period immersion game threw me a little bit off, because all three characters were so serious about their roles, and yet you still knew they were playing. However, it was sweet. Recommended.
* * *
 Не так всё дерзко и жгуче, как в книге предыдущей, да и сама историческая ролевая игра приводила меня в замешательство, так как герои были настолько серьёзны в следовании правилам, что сами себе верили... Однако интересно, мило и горячо. Всё-равно, советую.

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
