I read a lot of books, I like fantasy, romance and some non-fictionI work as a librarian, I'm an avid knitter. I collect Dragons, fountain pens, notebooks and filofaxes. And Yarn, lots and lots of yarn.
Falcio, Kest and Brasti are investigating what or who is killing Saints, Part of it seems to be an attempt to keep Aline from ruling. Falcio has no idea who, but he's determined to find out, even if it means sacrificing himself and many of the people around him, he's going to stand up for what he believes in and a world he wants to see.
The banter is mostly what keeps me reading. The characters have known each other so long and are so used to each others foibles that they work as a team but not without grousing and slagging each other off. I like it and enjoy them.
The Spanish Flu outbreaks and Cleo Berry is in a boarding school temporarily, while her brother and his wife enjoy a trip away. She's an orphan. When the flu breaks out she decides to go home and then feels compelled to try to help, so she finds herself in a hospital, finds that it is truly terrible devastation that is happening with people, so many deaths and many of them start to be people she starts to know, it fells people so quickly.
It wasn't bad but I felt I wanted to know Cleo better. It needed more for me to be happier with it. It was an interesting look into that period and the complex issues.
This story of a mute (by choice) woman, Morgana, who has powers she doesn't understand, who marries a widowed drover, Cai Jenkins, and finds space for herself in the relationship, but very little space in the village he lives in. There are forces at work here and it will take all her power to keep alive and to keep Cai alive.
I enjoyed the read, the characters were interesting but the villains were a little thin.
By now I'd be nervous around Daisy Fletcher, she's starting to be a bit like her fellow sleuth, Jessica Fletcher, if she goes somewhere there's about to be murder.
Daisy is going to her best friend's wedding and things take a twist when Lucy's great-aunt is found strangled in her bed. Then bodies start to accumulate and almost everybody there has a motive or two.
Entertaining but if I ended up at an even with her I'd be inclined to leave as soon as I found out.
Ah the 1930's, a spectre of war looming, racism being rampant, sexism oozing out if it's pores, who wouldn't want to go back there. This provides an interesting window into the era and the politics of the time, later spies would have no qualm of conscience about shooting unarmed miscreants but this is of it's era.
Though not telling his wife that there was danger around so not to bother her? Fie on that.
Not the only book you will every need as this is a mishmash of Native American (without tribal attribution) and Celtic (without tribal attribution) beliefs with some other flavours thrown in as well for spice. The illustrations are great and it does contain the basics but it isn't the only book you'll ever need on the topic if you get into it.
