Review - Rocks & Railways by Maz Maddox

My rating:

Mack has always been very comfortable playing the solid backup to Sheriff Calhoun, but when Cal is wounded chasing after some bandits, it's time for Mack to step in and take responsibility while the centaur recuperates. Of course, that's when everything goes sideways in town. The main thing causing a stir is the discovery of a living statue buried in the plateau the new railroad is trying to cut a tunnel through.

Review - Lacuna by N.R. Walker

My rating:

For over a thousand years, the four kingdoms have lived in peace, under the guidance of a central council of elders. Each kingdom is ruled by someone marked with the symbol of their respective kingdoms. The North, a land of snow covered mountains, is ruled by Crow, while the king of the West wetlands is Tancho. Both are 25 years old, and destined to meet, along with the rulers of the other two kingdoms, for the first time at a festival celebrating a once-in-one-thousand-years eclipse.

Review - A Fine Mess by Angel Martinez

My rating:

One of Shax’s enemies may be dead, but there are still a few others out for the demon’s head. However, he, along with the rest of the crew, are tired of running and decide to take on their enemies. It’s a risky endeavor, especially with the latest members of the “crew” being a group of young children rescued from one of the people now carrying a grudge against Shax and his friends.

Review - Blue Storm by Adara Wolf

My rating:

In a world where almost everyone can wield magic, being born without the ability means almost certain death. Without magic, you can’t know your true name, and without that a person soon loses touch with life. The only way to survive is if someone else uses their magic to bind you to this world, and them, by giving you a name. That makes you their slave, subject to every whim and sexual desire, and they can take away your name at any time, leaving you to waste away and possibly die unless someone else wants you for their plaything.

Review - Claw Marks and Card Games by Maz Maddox

My rating:

Note: This second book of the series is a direct sequel to the first, so if you haven’t read the previous book, be prepared for spoilers. The cards are being good to Cooper tonight, and hopefully he’ll make enough money off the game to pay down his huge gambling debt. Unfortunately, although the game goes his way, one of his opponents isn’t too happy about losing and pulls a gun. It’s a tense few moments until a tall stranger dressed in black intervenes on Cooper’s behalf.
