Blood Money: 4 stars. I really enjoyed this story. It was imaginative and blended magic and technology in a fun way. I’d be interested in reading the novel featuring these characters, Cunning Devil, which is also available on Unlimited.
Croft and Wesson: 3 stars. It was well-written, with fun characters. I didn’t guess the perp before the book gave it up, so that was a win. It didn’t interest me enough to look up his Prof Croft books, though.
Dane Croft novel (get name): 4.5 stars. I didn’t love it, but I really liked it, so 4.5 stars. It was really entertaining - classic gumshoe mixed with old school superheroes and supervillians. Definitely interested me in his Dane Curse series. It had a twisty mystery and great action, along with interesting supers. It kept me on the edge of my seat.
Dark City: The Order of Shadows: 2 stars. The copy editing on this was really bad or this author’s style has a haphazard relationship with English grammar. I didn’t like this novel/novella. It was no more a mystery than any other dark fantasy book. The main character was a cardboard cutout for the angsty, tortured hero, but not as heroic. It also screamed “read the rest of the story” in another book(s), but it just didn’t interest me.
The Null Factor: 1 star. This one had problems with its proofing, too. It wasn’t as imaginative in its heroes/villains but did have a fun take on how they might market themselves. The protagonist wasn’t that engaging. The author also had a problem with stating the same the character actions again and again. He tries for a Mickey Spillane style but falls short. I wouldn’t read another book by this author.
Strange Magic: 4 stars. Despite being something of a Harry Dresden knock-off, I liked this book. The protagonist was lots of fun & the secondary characters were interesting. The plot was a little prosaic, but the journey was worth it. It had a few proofing errors it nothing egregious.
Blood Scent: 4 stars. This makes a good introduction to the Colin McCool books. It’s well-written, with an engaging protagonist that isn’t quite as smartass as is currently in vogue and overused. It introduces one new variety of monster that I’ve never heard of, and I read a lot of mythology- and folklore-based books. I would read another in this series.
Just One Night: 1 star. This collection of short stories was marred by some weird hyperlinks in the middle of the text to the author’s website. The author has free short stories that the links lead to, but they are very jarring in the middle of the text and really belong at the end of the book. Very unprofessional. It also had a lot of annoying proofing errors. I wouldn’t read anything more by this author, including the free short stories. Sorry, but the hyperlinks are an epic fail. The protagonists didn’t interest me: there was too little there to hang your hat on. The stories were also just not well-written, very amateurish. The stories weren’t even mysteries per se.
