Inspired by the god sims such as Black and White and dungeon managers like Dungeon Keeper, God of Gnomes finds a boy named Corey in the unusual position of trying to save the last of the Gnomes race. Videogames merge with literature this week in our GiN book review.
Mastermind is one of those books where the main character exists inside a computer role-playing game. Sometimes called LitRPG, they can be fun reads for those who love both videogaming and role-playing. Mastermind: Titan Online however, is off to a rough start.
We are back with the excellent Demon Accords series this week, looking at the latest book from John Conroe, C.A.E.C.O, as the 15th story in the series, this one is short but sweet, introducing some new characters alongside old favorites.
We’ve been covering the Alex and Cassidy spy thriller book series for quite some time, so it was odd when book four was kind of a conclusionary tale. We find out why in book five, which takes place five years later, though with no less intrigue.
In the Alex and Cassidy spy thriller we have been covering by author Nancy Ann Healy, this is the book that finally provides the big answers. And it doesn’t disappoint. Conspiracy is a delight for fans of the previous books, or simply fans of spy thrillers.
Commitment is book three in the Alex and Cassidy series, and like those before it delivers a plot that is laden with heavy intrigue. Some might say that Commitment is more of the same, but if you like spycraft in your books, this series has it in spades.
The Intersection book we reviewed before was a great spy thriller with heavy romance overtones. Betrayal follows that success and finds heroines Alex and Cassidy deep in more dangerous spycraft.
It’s refreshing to find a book that blends the crime thriller genre with romance, especially for readers who are into one or the other, or both. Although there are a few missteps here and there, for the most part Intersection is a powerfully good read.
Team Yankee is a speculative military fiction novel that presupposes that NATO and the Warsaw pack triggered World War III back in 1985. Written by Harold Coyle, its actually a retelling of an excellent story by Sir John Hackett, which is also the basis for a thriving minitures combat game.
Although a little cliched with a plot about a young teenager becoming a superhero in a time of crisis, Scales, Spirits of Chaos Book One is nonetheless a pretty good read for those who enjoy the superhero and young adult genres.
