John G Hemry books, what can I say?

John G Hemry books, what can I say?  When I hear that name, I know I will be in for a great treat of a scifi nature, and when it comes to military Scifi Ibelieve he is one of the best, and everyone knows, who follows us here at Geeklore, is that we enjoy our scifi. So you can imagine when I got given anther John G. Hemry book, titled Jag In Space: A Just Determination I was ridiculously excited. Taking time to look at the art work on the cover you are greeted with the standard font and text layout that we see on so many of the John G. Hemry books.

‘The Last Four Things’ is the follow up to Paul Hoffman’s well received ‘The Left Hand of God’. That book introduced us to a world with a parallel history to our own and the character Thomas Cale, a young man who doesn’t look like anything much but is literally the Angel of Death, wreaking God’s wrath on the unfaithful.

Genre readers and regular Lair Of The Geek visitors will be well familiar with Cherie Priest by now.

Genre readers and regular Lair Of The Geek visitors will be well familiar with Cherie Priest by now. Her Raylene Pendle vampire novels Bloodshot and Hellbent were a big hit with us and her award winning steampunk novel Boneshaker is currently being developed for the screen by Hammer. UK fans may not be aware that Priest has written another set of novels which haven’t been available over here unless you were prepared to go hunting for imports on the internet. Fortunately for us Titan have corrected that oversight and Four and Twenty Blackbirds finally gets a UK release this month. This is the opening story for magic sensitive heroine Eden Moore. Two other Eden Moore stories, Wings to the Kingdom and Not Flesh Not Feathers, will follow later on this year.

Death’s Heretic written by James L.

Death’s Heretic written by James L. Sutter, is a Fantasy adventure, based in the world of Pathfinder. For those who have never heard of it, Pathfinder is a pen and paper role-play game and the books that are written, like this one, are of characters based in this world. You don’t need to know about the Pathfinder world/game to enjoy the books.

Regular readers will recall that not very long ago I wrote a review of Kalayna Price’s Grave Witch, the opening adventure for her magical heroine Alexis Craft, and if so they’ll probably also remember that I wasn’t very impressed with it.

Regular readers will recall that not very long ago I wrote a review of Kalayna Price’s Grave Witch, the opening adventure for her magical heroine Alexis Craft, and if so they’ll probably also remember that I wasn’t very impressed with it. So, here I am with Book Two determined to be fair and open-minded and give Alex Craft’s second outing a fair crack of the whip. I could have passed this novel on for someone else to have a look at but I’m glad I didn’t because Grave Dance is a much more satisfying read than its predecessor.

Before going into to details regarding the book I have to admit to saying that this is the first book I have read that follows a computer game.

Before going into to details regarding the book I have to admit to saying that this is the first book I have read that follows a computer game. Sure I have read books that involve computer games, but often these books are also connected to role-play games such as Dungeons and Dragons. So it was with a little excitement that I entered virgin territory for myself with the above title. I had a little background knowledge on the author of this book, I knew for instance that he was one of the creative writers for both the first and second Dragon Age games (both titles I thoroughly enjoyed playing through) and that he has also penned quests and storylines for other games such as the recently released Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, so quite a pedigree to enjoy

Urban Fantasy must be one of the fastest growing genres in literature at the moment with what seems to be shelves of books being released every month.

Urban Fantasy must be one of the fastest growing genres in literature at the moment with what seems to be shelves of books being released every month. Some of these are brilliant gem, jam-packed with originality and imagination but unfortunately there’s quite a lot of substandard fare out there as well. There’s a lot of clichéd characters, by-numbers plotting and lazy writing to hunt through before you find something special. So along comes (the memorably named) Devon Monk’s Magic in the Blood, the opening novel in a series of adventures for magic Hound Allie Beckstrom. Which is it going to be? Treasure or turkey?

Usually, I would start my review by giving a brief plot synopsis.

Usually, I would start my review by giving a brief plot synopsis. In this case however, as the storyline of Revelations the novel almost entirely follows the plot of Revelations the game many of you will either be familiar with the plot, or will not want their surprises in their gaming experience ruined by spoilers…So in deference to all you gamers out there I shall use the blurb provided by Penguin:

Grave Witch is the opening novel in a new urban fantasy series centred around the adventures of Alexis Craft, and if you enjoy this one the sequel Grave Dance is hot on its heels with a February 2012 release.

I was looking forward to reading this book, Having recently started playing Skyrim I was hoping that this would give me an insight into the history of the world in which the game was set, having never played the original two elder scroll games.

I was looking forward to reading this book, Having recently started playing Skyrim I was hoping that this would give me an insight into the history of the world in which the game was set, having never played the original two elder scroll games. The idea of a large floating island and hordes of rampaging undead are a great way to perk my interest in a book regardless of where it’s set so the book seemed too good to be true.
