Another week begins. I quickly slip into my business suit and head back into the office to save a few innocent people. But while I try to fool myself into being excited about the promise of a new year and the continuation of the regular grind, deep down, I’m not, so I’m going to escape dreary reality by reading some great books.
Work. My children’s sporting activities and school midterms. Christmas parties and activities. All of these things have combined together o practically obliterate my already finite reading time. I’m still trying though. And this week I’ll be doing my best to read the following novels.
Genre: Fantasy – Horror
Series: Dyscrasia #2
Publisher: IGNIS Publishing (September 23, 2017)
Length: 214 pages
Helen’s Daimones – the gateway novella for Dyscrasia Fiction. Helen and Sharon are orphans haunted by supernatural diseases, insects, and storms. They are your tour guides in this entry-way novella into Dyscrasia Fiction which explores the choices humans and their gods make as a disease corrupts their souls, shared blood and creative energies. In Helen’s Daimones, guardian angels are among the demons chasing the girls. When all appear grotesquely inhuman, which ones should they trust to save them?
Genre: Horror – Urban Fantasy
Series: The Vicious Circuit #3
Publisher: Tor (December 26, 2017)
Length: 288 pages
The concluding volume in the humorous punk rock adventure that began with The Unnoticeables and The Empty Ones .
After the events of the first two books of the Vicious Circle series, Carey and Randall reached LA during the early ’80s punk scene, which was heavily mixed up with Chinatown. A young Chinese girl with silver hair is the Empty One that seems to run things there, and her ex-lover, an Empty One named Zang, has apparently turned against them and may or may not be on Carey’s side.
In modern times, Kaitlyn and company have also returned to LA because her powers have been growing and she has been having visions that may be telling her how to kill all of the angels. The downside being that they have to find a new one, first–and LA is the only place they know where to do that.
Steeped in the LA punk scene in the ’80s, Chinatown, sunken suburbs, the ocean and gargantuan things that swim in it, Kill All Angels is everything that fans of Robert Brockway’s irreverent humor have been looking for to end the series with a bang.
