- Rex Rising (Elei's Chronicles, #1)
on Sep. 24, 2011
This book was very original. Chrystalla Thoma has created a fantastic new world. The idea of parasites giving people abilities (strength, site, ect) is a wonderful concept.
This was an amazing book. The non-stop action made me happy to give up a few hours of my much needed sleep just for another clue on the mystery of what happened to Elei and my the Gultur (a super race of women who rule the 7 islands of the known world) are trying to kill him. Hera is my favorite character of the book strong, beautiful, and always quick draw her gun.
I would give this book 4 out of 5 Stars. I love the uniqueness of parasites granting powers while also being a danger to the host. I could really see this book as a great TV show (there is far too much excitement to be covered in a 2 hour long movie.). I would liked to see Elei have more of a personality, you have Hara the quick to anger, gun slinging, I don’t care what you think bad ass and Kalaes the mother hen gangster with a heart of gold. Somehow Elei’s personality is overshadowed and falls short. I would recommend this book for ages 15 and up

- The Devil's Game by S.L. Pierce and Maren Kaye
on Sep. 25, 2011
Just when I thought I figured out this book it seemed like another piece to the puzzle came out of nowhere and proved me wrong. I figured out who Patient X was rather quickly but that is only a section of the puzzle of who is stalking Rachel and by no means ruins the rest of the mystery.
This book is fast paced and exciting. In some places it gets creepy; in a good way. I didn’t like that it seemed to skip weeks at a time without notice, leave you feeling like you missed a page or two.
I liked this story and give it 3 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed guessing who Rachel’s stalker was and went back and forth between a few of the characters on who it was. Rachel’s stocker’s stocker (Patient X) was easy for me to figure out but in no way hurt the story with all the other mysteries going on. I found Patient X to be very interesting and would look forward to the therapy sessions between Patient X and Dr Pike. My biggest complaint is always the same with all short stories, I felt like there could have been more. although its word count was 50,000; i was left still wanting to read more. I would rate this story 13 and up
