FEARLESS - Christine Rains
Abby White is one of the Fearless, a monster killer. She killed her childhood monster when she was seven and as an adult she goes around town protecting children by slaying their monsters. Tawa, her talking stuffed hippo, guides her during her nightly quests. Abby comes across Demetrius, a sexy fairy, and she finds that even though she has feelings for him she doesn’t want to act on them since she has a job to do. He won’t leave her side since he has a debt to pay after she saved him. The two become a monster-slaying team, but when they face the biggest monster of all both their strength and determination are put to the test. This novella is packed with action, horror, and romance. I’m glad I had a chance to read it.
FREAK - Jennifer Hillier
This continues where CREEP left off. Abby Maddox slashed a police officer’s throat and she’s sitting in prison, but she doesn’t plan on being there much longer. Manipulative to the max, she controls people inside and outside of prison; correctional officers, attorneys, and complete strangers are eating out of her hand. Her goal is to escape and seek vengeance against Dr. Sheila Tao, the former lover of Abby’s boyfriend Ethan, the serial killer in book 1. I don’t want to mention much else, because that might ruin book 1 for people who haven’t read it. With plenty of gore and suspense FREAK is a fast read. If there is a book 3, I’d love to read it.
SAVE THE LEMMINGS - Kai Strand
Natalie is a twelve-year-old inventor. Her latest invention, the Texty-Talky, becomes a sensation and she’s famous. With fame comes twisted lies about stealing ideas from aliens, drug use, and vandalism. Dealing with mean girls and rabid reporters isn’t easy, and things will become worse if her friends drift from her. This is an adorable MG book with a spirited, positive, likeable main character who deals with the conflict of being thrown into the spotlight.
A TO Z FLASHES OF FOXWICK - Cherie Reich
I enjoyed the Kingdom of Foxwick and its characters. The stories swept me away to another time and place. These flash fiction pieces were interconnected, but they also worked well as stand-alone tales.Display Comments Add a Comment
