Review Titles

A trio of review titles this week courtesy of  Flame Tree Press and Orbit Books.

YOUR TURN TO SUFFER by Tim Waggoner pits a young woman against a sinister group calling themselves The Cabal...

“His ability to weave the surreal with the hyper-real is his greatest talent.” — Signal Horizon.

Lorelai Palumbo is harassed by a sinister group calling themselves The Cabal. 

They accuse her of having committed unspeakable crimes in the past, and now she must pay. 

The Cabal begins taking her life apart one piece at a time – her job, her health, the people she loves – and she must try to figure out what The Cabal thinks she’s done if she’s to have any hope of answering their charges and salvaging her life.

EYE OF THE SH*T STORM by Jackson Ford is a new series to me, described as Alias meets X-Men...

Full of imagination, wit, and random sh*t flying through the air, "Alias meets X-Men" in this insane new Frost Files adventure that will blow your tiny mind (Maria Lewis).
Teagan Frost might be getting better at moving sh*t with her mind - but her job working as a telekinetic government operative only ever seems to get harder. That's not even talking about her car-crash of a love life . . .

And things are about to get even tougher. No sooner has Teagan chased off one psychotic kid hell-bent on trashing the whole West Coast, but now she has to contend with another supernatural being who can harness devastating electrical power. And if Teagan can't stop him, the whole of Los Angeles will be facing the sh*tstorm of the century . . .

“An un-put-down-able, action-packed adventure that packs an emotional punch” (Kirkus).

QUEEN OF IZMOROZ by Jon Skovron is the thrilling epic fantasy sequel to THE RANGER OF MARZANNA...

In this thrilling epic fantasy, Sonya has won the battle and brought a foreign army to free her country from imperial rule, but now she has to face her allies—who may have other goals. 

The first battle is over, but war yet looms on the horizon. Sonya and her allies--the foreign Uaine and their armies of the undead—have beaten back the imperial soldiers from the capital city. Now they have the rest of the country to free.

Meanwhile, her brother the famed wizard Sebastian has retreated with the imperial forces to regroup and lick his wounds. Betrayed by his sister and his wife, the beautiful noblewoman Galina, he will regain control of his life and his country at any cost.

Galina, his former betrothed, has her own visions for the land, and the political savvy to make them a reality. But a fledgling oligarchy, a foreign army, and the whims of a self-proclaimed servant of death stand in her way—power must be seized, and a queen must rise, before it's too late.

Sonya has brought a foreign army to free her country from imperial rule, but her allies may have other goals in the second book of this thrilling epic fantasy trilogy from Jon Skovron.

New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures

My Goddess and I went on a little vacation/staycation last weekend, making the 6 hour drive up to Ottawa, and we spent part of Saturday digging through a trio of hole-in-the-wall used bookstores.

THE BACHMAN BOOKS by Stephen King are a classic, and I remember carrying that bold orange paperback around the halls in high school. Although out-of-print with King's request to remove RAGE from shelves, the original paperback is relatively easy to come across, and this is in great shape.

NEEDFUL THINGS is the last Castle Rock tale by Stephen King, and a book that marks a definite turning point in his writing, shifting from epic supernatural horror to more intimate and personal books like Gerald's Game, Dolores Claiborne, and Rose Madder. I read this in hardcover when it was first released, and have wanted to revisit it, but I needed that original cover for it to feel right, and finding it was a challenge.

THE SEVENTH SANCTUARY by Daniel Easterman is an archaeological themed thriller that I've only ever before found in badly damaged hardcovers, so stumbling upon the mass market paperback was a genuine surprise and an automatic must-buy.

While we were up in Ottawa I got the email confirmation of a delivery back home, the 2nd and 3rd Jinx Ballou novels, which I'm reading in anticipation of an ARC of the 4th book, TERF Wars, coming my way in May!

EXTREME PREJUDICE is the 2nd outing for Dharma Kelleher's transgender bounty hunter, taking Jinx into a militant White Pride organization and bringing her face-to-face with the man who nearly killed her when she was a teen.

A BROKEN WOMAN by Dharma Kelleher sees Jinx Ballou struggling to rebuild her life after the terrorist attacks of the last book, with a new assignment that forces her to choose between returning an innocent transgender woman to custody or taking on a legal system that provides justice only to those society deems worthy.

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

No digital downloads this week...what with the roadkill e-reader and all.


  1. I'm really looking forward to Eye of the Sh*t Storm! Awesome haul😁

  2. Nice new books! I wish I had started that Skovron series when I had the chance.
