Friday Face Off - January 27th




Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic Books and Beyond Reviews
The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.

Friday Face-Off es una idea originalmente pensada por Books By Proxy que vi y quise hacer del super blog de Book and Beyond Reviews.
La idea originalmente era comparar las portadas del Reino Unido y de los Estados Unidos sobre la base de un tema asignado cada semana y elegir la portada ganadora. Voy a ser torcer ligeramente: no específicamente EE.UU. y Reino Unido cubre, sólo diferentes ediciones.

This week's theme or feature is "book or books" and the quote with it is "A room without books is like a body without a soul."
El tema o portada de esta semana es "libro o libros" y la cita con él es "un cuarto sin libros es como un cuerpo sin alma "

And searching for this week theme found this beautiful book with an enticing cover and story.
Y buscando el tema de esta semana encontré este libro hermoso con una portada interesante y una historia aun mas apetecible.

una excelente fantasia urbana, me encanto el estilo de narración te atrapa y es como si te estuvieran hablando a veces.
me fascino que tenia amor, misterio,acción, tenia de todo esta muy bien balanceada y pobre Jaime todo por lo que tuvo que pasar.
el punto de como se veían las religiones me encanto porque así mismo las veo yo fue un plus ese pedazo y muy bien hecha la tarea en cuanto a algunos conceptos que se explicaron. no puedo esperar a tener el segundo en mis manos.

this one was a little harsh but it was so good too, the plot was so intrigue and a little gore at parts but by the end you have a pretty big picture of what happened that faithful night and I felt bad for the protagonist, what happened to her was horrible at the beginning. it intrigued me for the series.

15823411El Silmarillion cuenta la historia de la Primera Edad, el antiguo drama del que hablan los personajes de El Señor de los Anillos, y en cuyos acontecimientos algunos de ellos tomaron parte, como Elrond y Galadriel…

Una obra de auténtica imaginación, una visión inspirada, legendaria o mítica, del interminable conflicto entre el deseo de poder y la capacidad de crear.

fue maravilloso, me intereso mas que hay tanto que contar y que en realidad los otros libros son una ínfima parte de un todo.

en las dos primeras edades, hay personajes tan interesantes y creativos para ambos lados que me parece tan extraño que solo se mencionen tan pocos en el señor de los anillos y que nunca mencionen a Morgoth que fue el que en realidad formo la maldad como la conocemos desde el principio de los tiempos.

para lograr entender en realidad todo lo demás, el silmarillion es una lectura obligada para cualquiera que en realidad ame la mitología que Tolkien llego a crear en estos libros.

Review: Savage Alien: A Science Fiction Alien Romance






31393314

Blurb
Michelle's dating a movie star and from the outside, her life looks glamorous. But she wants something more. At night, Michelle has dreams about an alien. She can't believe how handsome he is and lets him do unspeakable things to her. After all, it's just a dream, right?

She's surprised when the alien appears out of nowhere. When she's at TerraMates, the intergalactic mail-order bride agency, Caspian Coore walks into the room, looking for some oversized parts to fix his spaceship. Everything's bigger about these aliens.

Michelle had her future planned out, and a large, stern alien warrior isn't supposed to be part of it. Besides, Caspian is a Yarian. They're always promiscuous and love to party. Yarians only make an exception if they find their flaura...their eternal soul mate. Michelle's definitely not Caspian's flaura. She won't let him penetrate her defenses.

Or will she?

This story takes place in the TerraMates universe, but can be read as a standalone novel.

it was so cool, for me this one had the perfect balance of romance, action and intrigue. cass was so interesting and loyal, liked him and michelle was pretty independent I liked that she tried everything to try save a relationship but the way she ended up with cass, perfect.
and all the yarian conspiracies and such truly added body to the plot.

Review: Heart of Gold





31279297Blurb
My name is Frank Butcher, and when I got out of my truck to deliver the last package of the day, I never expected to get blown up by anti-magic zealots.

Yeah, you heard me right. I said magic. I didn't know it was a thing either.

Now, an ancient artifact is the only thing keeping me alive, and to make matters worse, that artifact is what those cultists wanted.

Still, I could have made a run for it, disappeared down into South America and spent the rest of my life on a beach. I nearly did it, but I didn't.

Why? Because the cultists have offered me a trade. Come to them or they start killing kids.

Review: Cyborg Seduction: A Science Fiction Cyborg Romance




32705198Blurb
He’s no longer human. Is he still her first love?

Wrath leads Green Squad, a team of cybernetic soldiers capable of autonomous missions. Cut off from their central command by a communications glitch, Wrath believes his team has been left in the desert to perish. When a group of humans shows up a year later, he’s ready to kill.

Reporter Rachel Halliday is terrified of cyborgs, but her first assignment at her new job is to cover the retrieval of Green Squad. Though scientists warn the media to keep their distance from the cyborgs, she disobeys and gets captured. Taken to the squad leader, she’s shocked to see that Wrath looks just like Robert, the man she once loved - and had given up for dead.

Convinced that Rachel is a spy sent to betray him, Wrath doesn’t trust her, but he can’t deny his strange compulsion to protect and possess her. With a military team approaching to take over the retrieval - and memory flashbacks shorting out his system - Wrath is on the verge of remembering everything, only to lose it all over again. Can Rachel help him recover the man he was before it’s too late?

Cyborg Seduction is Book 3 in the Burning Metal series and a STAND-ALONE, full-length science fiction romance. There are no cliffhangers, and a happy ending is guaranteed!

Review: Glass Sword



23174274Blurb
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

Readers will come to know the dangers that surround the Moriartys before James and Moria are sent off to the hallowed halls of Baskerville Academy, where they first meet the insufferable, inexhaustible Sherlock Holmes. It’s a tale full of intrigue and false starts and daring getaways, one that will leave readers desperate to know what's next.

well this one was pretty interesting, liked the modern touches of reality, but actually it did confused me a little since I never heard anything about holmes or why the rivalry began actually unless i missed something up at some point.
so cool for a mystery perspective but lacking a little in the point it was supposed to make.
