The Betrayal

The sequel to 'The Brotherhood' - more along the lines of what I was expecting from the 1st book, yet again, it totally took me by surprise - went in a completely different direction than I was expecting... great read!

The Lost Level

A very entertaining pulp-adventure novel.
[Reads just like a Burroughs' novel]

If you are a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. P. Lovecraft, H. G. Wells, Star Trek: The Original Series, or the show 'Lost', then this definitely is a must read for you - great fun!

According to Keene​, this is the 1st book in a planned multi-volume series (wahoo!)
I will be pre-ordering each new adventure, that's for sure!

The Third Target

A nearly flawless novel!
A gripping, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride.
BE FOREWARNED: this book ends with a massive cliffhanger!
(I haven't looked this forward to next year, so soon in the year before)

The Brotherhood

Completely not what I expected from this book, yet it is still a great read, from its horrifically tragic beginning all the way through to its climatic ending!

High Moor II: Moonstruck

Just as good, if not better than, the 1st book!

High Moor

Posted on G+:

I now have a new favorite UK author!
(and along with that, a new favorite werewolf novel)
I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere to read this book, than with the latest full "wolf" moon the last few nights.

Graeme Reynolds has crafted a superb novel, fleshing out great characters, and he has absolutely no hesitation on the violence factor!

I read this one on my Kindle App and, at the end, it gave me the option to buy 'High Moor 2' (good thing too, with the cliffhanger ending of this one!)
Needless to say, I purchased the 2nd book, immediately, so stay tuned!

Sons of Anarchy: Bratva

I posted this on G+ earlier this afternoon.
Figured I would post it here as well...
(just remember that I can no longer answer comments on here - see prior post - feel free to comment on my G+ profile though)

What do we do now that 'Sons of Anarchy' has ended its seven-season run?

I recommend reading 'Sons of Anarchy: Bratva'!

I couldn't have started the year off better than choosing to read this book (a Christmas gift from my wife).

The book takes place after the 4th season of the show...

Jax learns that Trinity (his Irish half-sister; discovered in season 3 - my personal favorite of the seasons) is in the U. S. and has gotten herself mixed up with some Russian Bratva gangsters.

Jax, along with Opie (yea!) and Chibs, head to Nevada where they team up with some members of SAMNOV to search for his sister.

This book is a quick, fantastic read that plays out, in your head, just like an episode of the show!

The author, Christopher Golden, nailed the characters and added some new, endearing ones into the mix as well.

Here's to hoping that he continues to write some more original SOA novels!
I will be the first in line...
