Author:John Banville First Book Publish:1994 Books in series: 3 Avg. Book Rating:7.5 Characters: The Book of Evidence (The Freddie Montgomery Trilogy Book 1) First published: June 11th 2001Rating: 7.56 stars GoodReads:The Book of Evidence Review: Banville es un estilista desde la médula del lenguaje. Me cuesta explicarme cómo un libro relativamente breve haya sido de difícil lectura para mí, quizá porque la novela nos obliga al avance a tramos, para no rasparnos con su aspereza. Por supuesto, es de los libros que se aman o detestan sin tonos medios: deslumbrante por donde se le vea, incómoda, poderosa. Uno de los mayores logros de Banville, amén de su prosa tan depurada, es la creación de Freddy Montgomery, un ser erudito, humano y aborrecible. Repito mi apreciación: no se trata de una lectura complaciente, pero es una lectura indispensable. Athena (The Freddie Montgomery Trilogy Book 2) First published: May 27th 1996Rating: 7.3 stars GoodReads:Athena Review: Unorganized thoughts:- I really enjoyed this. I almost want to give it five stars, but I feel like I should save those for the best of the best, and this lacked that little something to push it over the top. It’s fantastic, though, and I’m really in…

Book Rating:7.7 Characters: , Claudine de Tourville, Jonathan Frenshaw, David Frenshaw, Linnet Pennlyon, Colum Casvellyn, Tamsyn Casvellyn The Changeling (Daughters Of England Book 1) First published: May 2nd 1989Rating: 7.8 stars GoodReads:The Changeling Review: Fifteenth in the Daughters of England historical fiction series in the gothic romance vein. The focus in this one is on a Victorian-era daughter, Rebecca Mandeville and her family.My TakeA typical gothic romance with cozy overtones that thwart Carr’s attempts to create tension and drama. I’m not sure if my frustration with this is due to how long ago this story was first released and the silly tropes used in this were typical of the writing styles when this was written or if this was an aberration. I know I liked Victoria Holt, one of Carr’s pseudonym’s, when I was a kid. That said, the protagonist, Rebecca, annoyed the hell out of me. She’s such a snot. Granted, she has reason for her unhappiness, but even as she grows, she doesn’t acknowledge how unfair she’s been, although she’s quite keen to disparage others for doing exactly what she’s doing. She is so incredibly clueless… And I…

Born fatherless in a brothel Rebecca knew what males were made of. And Caleb was clearly as faithless as they came, scandalizing their Kansas cowtown with his fancy city women. Though his carnal lips tempted Rebecca beyond reason, she couldn’t afford to love a man like Caleb. For the price might be another fatherless babe….Why, Caleb mused, would he be drawn to a calico-clad dressmaker when sirens in silk were his for the asking? Still, innocent Rebecca unaccountably stirred him. Left him indifferent to costly perfumes. Made him crave her simpler scents of cinnamon and roses. Caleb vowed to trust no woman with his heart. But he had to have sweet Rebecca no matter what the cost….

Popular Series / 31.10.2017

Author:Elaine Cunningham First Book Publish:2005 Books in series: 2 Avg. Book Rating:7.2 Characters: Shadows in the Starlight (Changeling Detective Book 1) First published: January 23rd 2006Rating: 7.26 stars GoodReads:Shadows in the Starlight Review: This book was great! Everyone was so wickedly deceitful. You never knew who was going to kill who…. and there was a lot of killin’ going on. Gwen is a smartass with a “don’t fuck with me” attitude that I love. There is no romance in this book. Gwen sleeps with a few friends when she feels the need to, but otherwise her love life is non-existent. Normally that would turn me off from a book, but there was so much going on that I didn’t mind her lacking a relationship. I am disappointed that Cunningham didn’t continue this series. Shadows in the Darkness (Changeling Detective Book 2) First published: December 26th 2005Rating: 7.08 stars GoodReads:Shadows in the Darkness Review: Elves. Why did it have to be elves?This first book in a threatened series is a decent enough mystery with a hard-core ex-cop detective with a past shrouded in mystery even to herself. Although it contains the now-obligatory sex play (thanks LKH), they are mostly interrupted scenes…

“Darkly Dreaming Dexter” is the first book about Dexter. It introduces us with a charming employee of police laboratory. He is attractive, sociable, friendly… in appearance. As it turns out, he has learnt to pretend to be “a normal man” and behave himself right in society. What secret he is hiding? Our charming hero is a serial murderer with a unique pattern. He kills “bad guys” who avoided punishment for their crimes.   Dexter is not like all the others — he doesn’t have feelings all ordinary people possess, but he has a passion for murders. This is not his fault,as it is a result of a psychological trauma he experienced in the childhood.
