a review of The City

a review of The City | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group-Bantam Dell for the ARC, The City by Dean Koontz, a mesmerizing read about lies, murder, magic, and the power of family and friends. Told by Jonah Kirk (age 9), at the urging of his best friend, Malcolm, the reader is catapulted into Jonah’s city, during the tumultuous 1960s, his family’s love of music, and the effect of his relationship with Miss Pearl, a supernatural being who is described as the soul of the City, which is both beautiful and evil and part of the grand plan of life. Jonah is much older, looking back telling the sto...

a review of City of Heavenly Fire

a review of City of Heavenly Fire | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
The final novel in the Mortal Instruments series was awesome! Jace and Clary did not disappoint as partners, fighters and lovers. Their family and friends all band together as Sebastian is intent on destroying the Shadow Hunters and taking Clary as his queen and ruling together from Edom (another name for the underworld). I could not put this book down; I loved the many evolving relationships with Alec and Magnus, Isabelle and Simon, Jocelyn and Luke, Maia and Jordan, and so many more. Clare’s depth of character and settings make for a can’t put it down, exciting read. A very satisfyin...

a review of Beautiful Redemption | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
The final book in the Caster Chronicles (#4) definitely did not disappoint. When #3 ended, Ethan has jumped off the water tower to save Gatlin and everyone in it from the chaos that resulted when Lena went through her claiming. But this was never supposed to happen - Ethan dying - so he goes through many horror filled challenges in order to bring Gatlin (and Ethan) back to seasons, peace and harmony (if you could say Gatlin was all of these???) rather than the horrendous heat and lubbers - you will have to read book 3. What I loved about this book was the deep abiding love Ethan and Lena ...

Cop Town by Karin Slaughter
Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group-Bantam Dell for the ARC, Cop Town by Karin Slaughter, a riveting adult police crime mystery taking place in 1974 in Atlanta, GA. Unwelcome change has been permeating the police force in Atlanta and there are many “old boy” cops who hate seeing women, blacks, and other minorities, infiltrate their ranks. There is a cop killer on the loose and hostility and fear is rampant. The Lawson family is thick in the police force with Uncle Terry, Jimmy, and Maggie as the most current members. With The first cop kil...
