Monks & Navy & Pirates, oh my!

Avast me lads and lasses. If it's a pirate tale ye been seekin', Mike Kalmbach's debut novel, The Caldarian Conflict will whet yer appetite. Caldaria is plagued by pirates. Admiral Cain of the Caldarian navy has come up with a plan not only to rid the sea of pirates, but…

Ghellow Road

The front cover is a bit confusing. It says the book is a literary diary and also a novel. I guess it can be a made up diary, but Ghellow Road by T.H. Waters reads like a book of creative nonfiction. There are also quite a number of people to…

Outwitted

A peaceful cabin resort in northern Minnesota which is owned by an eccentric woman and her sister ~ add a corrupt judge who believes one of the cabins on the resort should belong to him ~ throw in a baby kidnapping ring ~ a couple of souls needing to complete…

Kids these days (and days in the future, too)

Okay, I’m a bit slow on the uptake ~ I just discovered this book recently. In fact, searching back I see that Jodie K. already reviewed it last December (editor’s note: LeAnn reviewed it too). As a general rule, I don’t usually review best sellers (especially ones that are already…

Worth Dying For

A friend (with whose opinion I generally agree) told me I had to read Worth Dying For, Lee Child’s latest Jack Reacher novel. I had never read a Reacher novel before (Worth Dying For is fifteenth in the series) and it’s been ages since I read a New York Times…

Pariah

First off, I have to say that I am in no way (as far as I know) related to Bob Fingerman. I actually discovered his existence when I was googling my name (yes, I do that occasionally). I became a fan after reading his novel Bottomfeeder. I became a bigger…
You’ve Been Punked

You’ve Been Punked

For me, Peter Joseph Swanson’s latest novel, Punk Minneapolis, hits very close to home. It takes place in 1989 on my old stomping grounds ~ the Uptown area of south Minneapolis. Okay, I was never really a true punker (more new wave), never wore a Mohawk, and by ’89 I…
Satan’s Mirror

Satan’s Mirror

Emily Goodman is a former reporter who now travels the country hosting a reality TV show. Her job is to seek out paranormal activity and expose it for the fraud that it is. Her record for figuring out how-it’s-done is perfect until she’s sent to investigate Satan’s Mirror, a mirror…

City of Thieves

I’m normally not a big fan of historical fiction. If I’m going to be reading about history, I’d much rather read about something that actually happened. Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth was one exception. Now, David Benioff’s City of Thieves is another. It’s 1942 and the siege of…

Well someone has to do it . . .

I’m not sure as to why, but death has always fascinated me. Not so much the death happens to everyone sooner or later kind of death, but the whole I am Death, pleased to meet you, now walk this way kind of death. Christopher Moore’s A Dirty Job fit the…
