- That Which is Unexpected
on July 08, 2013
It's not really my type of humor (i'm more of an ownage girl) but it's well written and there's a lot of witty moments like the time he had a hostage negotiation with his lungs in exchange for CO2 (lol) so while I wasn't a total fan of it I could easily see myself recommending this to someone who would be.
- Non-Compliance: The Sector
on Sep. 23, 2013
Review by Kayti Nika Raet for Reader's Favorite
The Nano Review:
Why did it have to end! ㅠㅠ
When Saoirse 'Shea' Alverez Kelly refuses to subject herself to the newest bit of Gov-Tek she's thrown into Non-Compliance Sector 610-23 , the Heartland district. Set in a grim future where government control is nearly absolute Shea's technical experience quickly comes in handy and with tbe help of her friend Wynne and a few well placed hacks, they are able to procure some much needed goods for the residents.
It's this sort of expertise that gets them noticed and they catch the attention of Boss Jennings, gangster and semi-benolovent protector of the Heartland district. With her's and Wynne's help he hopes to take down his biggest rival and restore peace and order to the community. After one too many encounters with the psychotic rival, Shea is quick to take up Boss's offer.
Kick-ass, intriguing and fast paced Non-Compliance: The Sector by Paige Daniels is a novel that can be quickly summed up in one word: Awesome!
The Awesome Bits
As I was reading Non-Compliance and getting closer and closer to the end I kept hoping for some kind of Disney magic to make the pages increase, it was that good. But alas and alack it did in a horrible cliffhanger-y manner (ㅠㅠ).
Shea is cool and smart (no seriously, really smart), and totally kick-ass.
Non-Compliance is like the cooler dystopian version of an Anita Blake novel (there are no vampires but Quinn more than makes up for it *eyebrow wiggle*).
Unfortunately I have no idea when the next book comes out but Ms Daniels does have a web site which I fully intend to stalk— ah,visit.
Edit--- Non- Compliance: The Transition will be available September 30
- The Hunt for Tatterwing: A Tatterwing Chronicles Glimpse
on May 05, 2014
I'll sum up The Hunt for Tatterwing in one word: Loved it! (Okay, that was two but whatever). I haven't read any of the Tatterwing books yet but The Hunt really grabbed my interest and I even felt a little sorry for poor Hal but I felt even more curious about Tatterwing herself and all she had to offer.
- Bloodgifted, Book 1 of The Dantonville Legacy
on July 14, 2014
Laura Dantonville knows her family possesses a gene that makes them age much slower than the average Australian but it isn't until her 50th birthday that she's told of her true heritage. She is part vampire and her family has been placed under a curse since the time of the Romans. Now that she has turned fifty Laura has the key to break that curse but she's also the target of every rogue vampire in the city as her blood gives them the ability to walk in the sunlight.
To keep her safe she's assigned a guardian, the handsome Alec, who because of his own ancestors also has a part to play in breaking the curse.
But there are forces, both human and vampire, determined to keep them apart and perpetuate the cursed legacy.
I haven't read any paranormal or vampire novels in a while but Bloodgifted by Tima Maria Lacoba made me remember everything that I love about the genre.
Laura is a sweet but resilient character, she also has a very sarcastic wit which when coupled with Alec's own makes for some great banter and adds to the growing chemistry between the two.
I really liked the vampire lore in Bloodgifted, it was very unique and constructed in a way that made perfect sense. I’d love to see how Lacoba builds upon it in the future books.
I'll end by saying Alec is quite the hunk *fans self* and I can't wait to read more about Laura and Alec's adventures in the next book!
