Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale SingsFluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings by Christopher Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great book by Christopher Moore! I honestly didn’t know what adventure I was getting myself into with this one, however I was not disappointed. I was able to be a part of group of smart, wity, crafty, and intelligent people. I went and lived in an underwater village. Got to meet some creatures that were not quite right in the head, and got to save a friend. I laughed, giggled, got angry, and even said a few choice words while living in this world, that I’m now kind of sad that the book is over. If you haven’t read this book then I suggest you should.

Book Summary:
Just why do humpback whales sing? That’s the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals. Until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite me.

Trouble is, Nate’s beginning to wonder if he hasn’t spent just a little too much time in the sun. ‘Cause no one else on his team saw a thing — not his longtime partner, Clay Demodocus; not their saucy young research assistant; not even the spliff-puffing white-boy Rastaman Kona (né Preston Applebaum). But later, when a roll of film returns from the lab missing the crucial tail shot — and his research facility is trashed — Nate realizes something very fishy indeed is going on.

By turns witty, irreverent, fascinating, puzzling, and surprising, Fluke is Christopher Moore at his outrageous best

Arson (Arson #1)

Arson (Arson, #1)Arson by Estevan Vega
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A bit different but still a great book. It’s a fast, easy read, that can be read in one sitting or afternoon over a cup of coffee. This books tells the story of Arson, who is a teen with a special power. He is raised by a grandmother who resents his existence. The story is a bit dark, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.

Book Summary:

ARSON is the first book in a Young Adult Paranormal series. Book two, ASHES, is also available now.

ARSON GABLE FEELS LIKE A FREAK. HE CAN CREATE FIRE. HE NEVER ASKED FOR IT. HE NEVER WANTED IT. BUT HE CAN’T SHUT IT OFF.

Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone. But when a strange girl–who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin–moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he’s never had: purpose. After years of living in fear, he will be forced to confront his haunting past and embrace the unknown as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Edgy, realistic, and breathtaking, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated teenager with unimaginable ability, is set to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.

Book Summary:
Mother, wife, private investigator–and vampire. “I enjoyed MOON DANCE immensely. The protagonist, Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she’s trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she’s a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness-not of spirit, but of body. “You sicken me and scare the hell out of me,” he tells her. “And when I touch you it’s all I can do to not gag.” She replies “Words every wife wants to hear.” I love this! She really doesn’t deserve to be frozen out of her marriage, yet his attitude is understandable. In the course of the novel she solves the mystery she is tackling for a client, and finds a new romantic interest. What makes it special are her character and nature.” -Piers Anthony, bestselling author of Xanth

****ARC Review****
Oh holy wow! I don’t even know how to describe this book to give it the credit it deserves. This book is dark, twisted, creepy, and full of action. I had to keep putting it down due to it being a bit dark. I couldn’t even read it at night! The vampire is just creepy *shivers* I wouldn’t want to cross paths with him or the main character. She’s more creepy and twisted than he is! But I loved it! It’s a great book filled with mages, a vampire, and other creatures! I’m glad that this is the first book to the series since I can’t wait to read the other ones and give myself more nightmares! P.S. This is not a “sparkly, lovely” vampire book. It’s dark and the vampire is EVIL!
