Blackbirds / Miriam Black #1 / Chuck Wendig, Take A Bow / All Hail, Chuck!

It is not the irreverence of Kadrey
It is not the fluff sassiness of pop uuff
Miriam Black has a mouth
Miriam Black has an attitude

She owns all that she has
She is broken, lost, adrift and afoul
She sails the sea of death
Lots and Lots and Lots of death

Miriam sees death
Exactly when
Exactly where
Exactly how

Every person she touches
Skin to skin
She knows
She knows when, where and how

Who wouldn't be going a little mad
The reader goes a little mad too
Can't stop reading
Just can't stop reading

Damn you Mr. Wendig!
Thank you Mr. Wendig!
Mockingbirds is on my to do list
I really want to know where you are going with this

YA Bliss / Star Kingdom Book 2 / Fire Season / Jane Lindskold / David Weber

I love YA lit
You already know this
It's worth repeating

Fraught with teen angst
Much daring do
Many lessons to learn

Fire Season, Star Kingdom Novel 2
Jane Lindskold writing with or for David Weber
Telling a great tale

If you've read the Honor Harrington Series
You will love this back story
It all had to start somewhere, this is where

Stephanie Harrington stands tall
The Treecats need protection
No one could do it better

All the while getting to know the each other
Both human and treecat
Discovering the sentience of the other

A delightful awakening
A beautiful unfolding
So much to learn

Knowledge brings responsibility
Responsibility brings action
Action brings consequences

Delicious!

Chris F. Holm / The Collector Series / Book 1, Dead Harvest

Once again
An unread book
I am legion
I am a reader

Dead Harvest by Chris F. Holm
The Collector Series, Book One
Angry Robot Books
Eye Candy

Sam collects souls
The souls of the damned
Sam is damned himself
Sam made bad choices in life

His latest job, stops him hot
Blinded, by the light
What is a poor boy to do
Oh the consequences, Oh the circumstances

He must collect
He will not collect
What can he do
What must he do

Spreck, speck, speckled
Speckled, spec-u-la-tions
Not even the Captain
Could sing himself out of this dilemma

Terrific series starter
Terrific Urban Fantasy
What would Homer say
"Shiny"

This is not a cryptoquote
But it is cryptic
This is scat
Not that scat

A music re-post
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica
Music for the very few
