Some Good, Some Bad

by EdenHail on Sep 3, 2009

Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs- this story introduces a new character to the world of Mercy Thompson and elaborates on a off-screen event in or between Blood Bound and Iron Kissed. The character Anna is a lot like Kitty ( Kitty and the Midnight Hour) at first, being at the bottom of the pack. The nature of the short story stops much character development, but I enjoyed the peek into their lives, the plot and interaction drawing the reader along at a quick pace. I look forwards to reading more about them. Four stars. Inhuman by Eileen Wilks - The world made by Eileen is interesting, based on some magical booster that enhanced and woke magic in some humans. There is a great deal of prejudice against the magically woken which could have been handled better, and several of the minor characters are very cardboard. It is not a quick read, the perspective swinging back and forth inelegantly and it did not captivate my attention. Three stars. Buying Trouble by Karen Chance - Set in the world of her current series, the story centres on a new character called Claire. I enjoyed reading about it through the eyes of another character, though the protagonist was again from an unbelievably well-bred background. The adventure was quick paced and had a good flow, but the reasons behind many key points were undisclosed. The cousin was poorly written, and it is questionable whether he survived or not at the end. Despite this, I liked it. Three stars. Mona Lisa Betwinning by Sunny - Oh dear - where to start? The setting was modern day, I assume, and the protagonist an ex-nurse. The style the story was written in was out-of-sync. No one thinks like the flowery, over poetic intonations the book was written in, not when they were a woman of the working class in America. It was beyond ridiculous. And then I realized the short story was about the main character in the series Monere, Children of the Moon, and the author was giving major spoilers about the first book. Not only that, but it made no sense. The protagonist Lisa (Mona being the title for Queen) was contradictory and painfully ignorant. I have absolutely no desire to read the author Sunny's works. I closed the book after several pages of the story. A big disappointment after a nice collection. One star.

Very good, a popcorn book or beach book. I felt that the Patrica briggs Section was the strongest. The other were a bit new age for me and a little on the fluffy side. They where a "read and forget". The Alpha and Omega section stuck the others have faded, like chinese food 1/2 hours later you can't remember what you had.
