Review: The Time Weaver by Thomas A. Knight

5 comments:


Title: The Time Weaver
Author: Thomas A. Knight
Publisher:
DragonWing Publishing
Release Date: January 31, 2012
Acquired Via: Author

The Time Weaver starts with a small jump back to the main character’s childhood, where his father, ominously and mysteriously, has to leave the family as “he” has found them. Then we jump to the main story. Seth is a software designer (Funny thing is, the author is also a software designer. If I were to write a book, I’d definitely make my main character a translator. Sorry, The Translator. Handsome, charismatic, charming and swashbucklingly awesome. It would also be in the genre of fantasy... Ok, moving on. *grin*)

After a bit of back-story and setting things up, it gets interesting. There’s a car crash. Time stops. A huge ass werewolf thing rends space and time and claws its way to Seth, our main character. Who promptly proceeds to metaphorically shit his pants and run like hell. I would too, mind you. I may be swashbuckingly awesome, but mama didn’t raise no dum-dum. Big ass werewolf thing = run. If you leave this blog learning nothing but one thing, let this be that one thing. Run away from big ass hairy things. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. In which case, have fun! *wink*

Review: Crooked Fang by Carrie Clevenger

Title: Crooked Fang
Author: Carrie Clevenger
Publisher:
Lyrical Press, Inc.
Release Date: August 20, 2012 Acquired Via: Author

Hi there. Long time no see! Been real busy with traveling to the US, meeting my in-laws, moving with my fiancée from the US back to Chile, you know... relaxing stuff. Oh yeah, getting married in December. *grin*

Anywho. That’s why I’ve been away. Barely any time left for reading anything! I have made time to play Skyrim, cause... DRAGONS!! *nerdgasm* But now I’m back, and my first post back is for a long overdue review of Crooked Fang.

I must admit that vampire books aren’t really my thing. I’m more of a werewolf guy myself. Not in that I like werewolf based books, but more in that if I were ever turned, I can see myself more howling at the moon than sucking someone’s blood and leaving them dry. Hmm... That was a weird detour into my brain there... Moving on... *ejem*

I don’t mind vampires in the books I read, like Leif in The Iron Druid Chronicles, or Thomas in The Dresden Files. But I’ve never had any luck with a main character vampire. Not even half vampires. They’ve all been good books, just not my kind of book. This book is different though.

When first looking into Crooked Fang and deciding whether to give vampires another try, I went to the website and saw this:

WARNING: Cussing, smoking, drinking and hot sex.

I remember saying to myself “Fiiiiine, I guess I’ll have to read it”. There is cussing, there is smoking, and there is hot sex. You’ve been warned. One particular scene involving a pillow and screams of pleasure crystallized that warning for me. *blush*

BookBlast (Giveaway): Concilium by Michelle K. Pickett

No comments:

A tale of deadly creatures and forbidden romance...

Leslee hit a strange animal with her car. Now she’s marked for death.

It was a simple car accident – the animal didn’t even die – but it drew the attention of the Cruor Imbibo. Driven by their insatiable need to feed, the secret society of Imbibo has devoured the dregs of civilization for centuries. Afraid Leslee will expose them, and put an end to their meal ticket, the Imbibo want her dead.

The Concilium is Leslee's only protection. Guardian of the ancient secret and the protector of humans, the Concilium fights to control the Imbibo and end their feeding frenzy. Miller works for the Concilium. Keeping Leslee alive is his next assignment.

Now Leslee is on the run, and the only thing between her flesh and the snapping jaws of the Imbibo is Miller. He and Leslee quickly form a bond, but will falling in love make Miller’s job more difficult? Because if he fails, Leslee will be next on the Imbibo menu.

The Cruor Imbibo are coming, and they're coming for Leslee.

Author Interview: Harvey Simon (The Madman Theory)

No comments:


Harvey Simon is a freelance writer living in Washington, DC. His articles have appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine and elsewhere. Before moving to Washington he was a national security analyst at Harvard University, where he also wrote about other public policy issues. He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University and an M.A. in philosophy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.




Mr. Simon, thank you so much for doing an interview for the readers of Bibliophilia, Please. Would you mind telling us a little about The Madman Theory in your own words?

The Madman Theory is a political/historical thriller about the Cuban Missile Crisis, which occurred 50 years ago this October, when the U.S. discovered a secret nuclear missile base under construction in Cuba. The Madman Theory imagines what would have happened during the Missile Crisis if John F. Kennedy had not been elected president. In my what-if novel, Kennedy’s Republican opponent – Richard Nixon – wins the 1960 election, as he was expect to do and very nearly did.

Your book is based on your imagining of real people’s potential behavior in a particular time-period – what kind of research did you do bring The Madman Theory to life?

Guest Post: Harvey Simon (The Madman Theory)

1 comment:
It is 1962 and there are children at play in the White House for the first time since the presidency of William Howard Taft.

Richard Nixon, the vigorous 49-year-old president, has been in office less than two years, having won election by a razor-thin margin over Senator John Kennedy.

In Moscow, the wildly unpredictable Nikita Khrushchev is looking forward to visiting his cherished revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro. Just 90 miles from American shores, Khrushchev will announce an audacious and dangerous nuclear stunt to abruptly shift the balance of power—a secretly-built network of missiles across Cuba that put American cities in the atomic crosshairs.

But President Nixon has his own announcement planned. A U.S. spy plane has discovered the missiles being set up in Cuba and Nixon will soon address the nation to announce his response.

Meanwhile, First Lady Pat Nixon is in California to look at a San Clemente house the first couple may purchase. Seeing shoppers crowd around a store-window television, Pat gets her first inkling of trouble. Dick has always insisted she not listen to the news and she is happy, for now, to return to her correspondence.

In the coming days, the confrontation between the U.S. and its nuclear foe will escalate. The president will weigh his determination to overthrow Castro against the risk of all-out war as Pat struggles to reconcile her estrangement from the man who thrust her into a public life she despises with her sense of a wife’s proper role.


A Conspiracy Theory?
by Harvey Simon

When President John F. Kennedy was asked why his margin of victory in the 1960 election had been so slim – one of the closest in history – he joked that his father had promised to buy him the presidency, but hadn’t wanted to spend more than was necessary for victory.

Some people thought Kennedy wasn’t entirely joking.

In my novel, The Madman Theory, I tell the story of what might have happened if that election hadn’t gone for Kennedy, whether you think Kennedy won because of fraud or simply because more people – albeit a tiny percentage more – voted for the Democratic Party candidate.

Since the tender age of eight, music served as Samantha Becker’s source of solace against her father’s tyranny and her mother’s alcoholism.

Battling her father’s plans for her future, band mates using her for personal gain, and a permanent injury, the odds are stacked against her. With auditions approaching and time running out, Sam must relearn to play the guitar, or be destined to give up her dreams forever.

Title: Magisterium
Author: Jeff Hirsch
Publisher:
Scholastic
Release Date: October 1, 2012

On one side of the Rift is a technological paradise without famine or want. On the other side is a mystery.

Sixteen-year-old Glenn Morgan has lived next to the Rift her entire life and has no idea of what might be on the other side of it. Glenn's only friend, Kevin, insists the fence holds back a world of monsters and witchcraft, but magic isn't for Glenn. She has enough problems with reality: Glenn's mother disappeared when she was six, and soon after, she lost her scientist father to his all-consuming work on the mysterious Project. Glenn buries herself in her studies and dreams about the day she can escape. But when her father's work leads to his arrest, he gives Glenn a simple metal bracelet that will send Glenn and Kevin on the run---with only one place to go.

With MAGISTERIUM, Jeff Hirsch brings us the story of a complex, captivating world that will leave readers breathless until the very last page.


Sounds great, no? I pre-ordered this on Amazon ages ago, but I never got around to adding it on Goodreads until last night. Brain fart? Oh yes.

Blog Tour (Excerpt & Giveaway): Hive by Marc Davies

Title: Hive
Author:
Marc Davies
Publisher: Champagne Books
Release Date:
August 6, 2012

For centuries the Hive has waged a secret war, pitting psychic powers against the monstrous appetites of the Silencers. Now its visionary leader has an ambitious plan to tip the balance, and the conflict threatens to boil over onto the streets of modern dayLondon.

Nineteen-year-old Luke is thrust into the conflict when he foils an assassination attempt on the charismatic Dr. Jean-Paul Lysayer, a world renowned expert on telepathy. Down on his luck, and torn between an old flame and blossoming desire, the last thing Luke needs is to be used as a pawn in the eternal conflict.

But the Hive needs Luke's unique abilities, and when he uncovers evidence of a conspiracy it will take all his street-smarts to stay alive long enough to separate friend from foe.


Excerpt

We raced against time, frantically clicking on links that disappeared even as we viewed them. Repeated error messages forced us to chase obscure mentions of Lysayer now, websites that fed information from other websites, blogs and forums. They dropped like flies, forcing us to move on ever faster.

Review: Tricked by Kevin Hearne

3 comments:
 
Title: Tricked
Author: Kevin Hearne
Publisher:
Del Rey
Release Date: April 24, 2012
Acquired Via: Purchase

Tricked by Kevin Hearne is the fourth installment in his urban fantasy series, The Iron Druid Chronicles. In this book, our hero (and my book boyfriend), Atticus O'Sullivan; his dog, Oberon; and his apprentice, Granuaile face the repercussions of Atticus' trip to Asgard, as well as a few new issues thanks to the Navajo trickster god, Coyote.

The Writing of Tricked reminded me of precisely why I love to read. It's easy for me to lose interest in books because I'm such a picky reader. (Yes, I am an avid reader, but I'm not an easy one to please. I try to tone that down here on the blog.) Kevin Hearne's quirky humor and heavy use of both nerdy pop culture and literary references lovingly caresses the inner dweeb in me. Tricked is also obviously heavily researched. The book (and series) is loaded with facts about various mythologies and poisons, as well many other trivial knowledge that went over my head (such as mining equipment) - not that it was boring. I just used that time to pretended that I could beat up Granuaile and take her place roaming the world with Atticus and Oberon. Anywho, research is always appreciated, even if it's something I do not exactly understand. At least someone does, right?

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers can get a taste of the real world. But the real world comes to her in this dystopian tale with a philosophical bent. Rumors of massive unrest on the “Outside” abound. Something murderous is out there. Amish elders make a rule: No one goes outside, and no outsiders come in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man, she can’t leave him to die. She smuggles him into her family’s barn — at what cost to her community? The suspense of this vividly told, truly horrific thriller will keep the pages turning.

Blog Tour (First Chapter): Loving Lady Marcia by Kieran Kramer

6 comments:


MARCIA GETS SCHOOLED…
Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family’s wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is—until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan…and into the arms of an unexpected suitor.

ON THE SUBJECT OF LOVE
A dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia’s past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she’s become. Marcia, too, is surprised—by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why—why—must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia’s rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow—when they know that it’s much more than a hunch…?


Chapter 1

1814

A girl knows when her life really begins, and for fifteen-year-old Lady Marcia Sherwood, daughter of the Marquess and Marchioness of Brady, it was the moment she met the two Lattimore brothers.

When the first one took his seat in the Brady carriage, she had to clamp her teeth together to keep her mouth from falling open. If her friends at school could only see him. They’d never believe he was this handsome.

“I’m Finn,” he said. “Pleased to meet you.” He gave a half-grin, his eyes gleaming with something.

He must guess. He must know she found him attractive. Or perhaps he found her attractive.

Oh, dear. Could that be so?

Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

6 comments:


Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher:
Harper Teen
Release Date:
April 24, 2012
Acquired Via: Local Library

The Selection is the Big Six debut of young adult author, Kiera Cass. In a national lottery to choose the next queen of Illea in a post-apocalyptic United States, teenaged America Singer is chosen as one of the 35 contenders for Prince Maxon's heart and the crown.

One of the things I loved best about The Selection was the Writing. It is the literary equivalent of cotton candy - delicious, sweet, and gone in no time. (Cotton candy is NOT a bad thing in Kayla Land.) It is written in such a way that it is accessible to pre-teens all the way to older adults. Dystopias and post-apocalyptic books have saturated the YA [non]genre, so it is difficult to stand apart. However, Kiera Cass accomplished this by writing a clean book with characters who weren't that bad (except for jerk-face Aspen). I do have to say that I don't consider the book to be a truly dystopian novel because the government is not horribly corrupt from what I've seen so far, and the girls chosen in the lottery don't have to stay. Yes, the caste system sucked, too, but it's something American teens can relate to in the present economic situation. Not many people move out of their social class despite the (now lessening) opportunities to do so. I won't go too far into that because it would take away from the essence of the book. (I don't believe it was written to be much of a political statement.) We can discuss this in the comments if you like.
