Twists and turns.

Illusion of Choice - Eric Ponvelle

This was free from the author with the request for an honest review.
It's a very thought provoking book, but in no way was it boring, as you might expect from those first words, in fact I had to force myself to put it down so that I could sleep! Lots of twists and turns to keep you reading.
The thought that we could end up with a society such as this is truly scary and I hope it does stay in the realms of fiction.
The only issue I have is that numbers/dates at the beginnings of chapters take a long time to be explained, which makes it very confusing, but since that is the only problem I think it is well worth buying this book.

Can't get enough of this series.

Z-Burbia 4: Cannibal Road (Volume 4) - Jake Bible

Is this series getting boring? Hell no! The cast of characters is as insane as ever, but it is the zombie apocalypse after all.

More fighting, capture, escape and lots of blood and gore. They have left the 'safety' of zburbia but the fun and games continues in Mr Bible's inimitable style.

Buy the series, read them all, you won't regret it.

More craziness unfolds.

Z-Burbia 3: Estate Of The Dead - Jake Bible

Jace has lost his arm, but not his sarcasm, humour, or ability to space out at the most inappropriate times. With his family and friends he fights enemies new and old.

It's good to see the characters develop and to find out where some of them came from. I cannot fault this book, it was impossible to put down until I had read every word.

Funny, gross, with vivid descriptions, it's ideal for zompoc fans.

Mêlée!

Z-Burbia 2: Parkway To Hell - Jake Bible

Jace is back fighting PCs, the so-called POTUS, plus the never ending stream of Zs. He's still having to deal with the insane bureaucracy of Brenda and the HOA, as if there isn't enough to do!

Guns, mêlée weapons, cannies, death and destruction, what more could you ask for?

I love the sarcasm and Jace's tendency to zone out while the craziness unfolds around him.

Great second book in the series and I'm glad there's more to read.

Ok for a first novel.

The Dinosaur Four - Geoff   Jones

Quite a good plot, especially if you like dinosaurs and time travel. 

Unfortunately I didn't find any of the characters very likeable, therefore I couldn't really get engrossed in the book and didn't really care who survived.

 The ending let it down too, it was confusing and a bit lax.

It was ok for a first novel but I will hope for more if a second one is written.

Funny.

Home Sweet Gnome - Jennifer Zane

Another adventure starring George the gnome.

Crazy and hilarious, I can't help but enjoy a book with so many eccentric characters, old and new. Mistaken identity, crazy old ladies and a road trip from hell, this is a thrill ride from beginning to end.

Suburban Nightmare

Z-Burbia: A Zombie Novel - Jake Bible

After reading this I'm so glad that I'm not at the mercy of a Homeowners Association! What a great idea for a zompoc book. As if dealing with zombies isn't enough, the main character, Jace, has to deal with ridiculous rules and regulations from the "leader" of the HOA. 

Sometimes funny, often heart-pounding, with loss and sadness too. A great book for zombie lovers and HOA haters alike.

Likeable fairytale.

Kiss That Frog: A Modern Fairy Tale - Cate Rowan

A modern day telling of finding a handsome prince.

I did enjoy it but it seemed a bit lacking somehow, seemed to stop too abruptly. A shame really as it was quite a sweet story, as far as it went. Well written and nice characters but not enough to connect with them. The back story of the Prince's circumstances was nice to have included though.

Blott (The Canvas Chronicles Book 1)

Blott (The Canvas Chronicles Book 1) - Daniel Parsons It's classed as a YA book but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Blott is a great character and his abilities were not what I was expecting.
Really well thought out and easy to read, can't wait for book 2 to find out what else will happen in this strange world.

Zombie Fallout 2: A Plague Upon Your Family

Zombie Fallout 2:  A Plague Upon Your Family - Mark Tufo Loved this book as much as the first one (which you must read first)I especially like the twist on the normal mindless zombies with the story of Eliza. Mike is crass but would do anything for his family, a very flawed hero but engaging. All in all a fantastic read and can't wait to see what disasters the next one brings.

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, An Urban Fantasy Romance (Biker Witches Mystery, Book 2)

The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers, An Urban Fantasy Romance (Biker Witches Mystery, Book 2) - Angie Fox Loved this book as much as the first, it's great to have a heroine who doesn't know it all and having a talking dog as a sidekick is a good twist. The biker witches give me a good laugh too.

Phone Kitten

Phone Kitten - Marika Christian Really funny book, the imagery of the calls was disturbing but made me laugh. Good to have a heroine with the body issues so many of us have and it didn't feel forced.

Gnome On The Range

Gnome On The Range - Jennifer Zane Brilliantly funny book! I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. So many twists and turns with the perfect proportion of scary and funny. I'd highly recommend as long as you aren't too easily shocked.

Carpe Demon

Carpe Demon  - Julie Kenner Loved this and couldn't put it down until I'd read the whole thing, oh how I wish I could be a soccer mom like this!
