I am not really into graphical novels, but I could pick up the dutch version of 'Welcome to the Jungle' for $2.50 today. So, I did. Let's see if I have time this weekend...

Cool Cold Days by Jim Butcher review. @longshotauthor

*** F-bomb ALERT ***
[This reviewer's language is quite strong, he laces his review with lots of F-bombs]

Mainly my thoughts and impression on Cold Days by Jim Butcher. Really truly an amazing read/listen, yall gotta give the Dresden Files a read. 14 books total now, latest one being Cold Days, first one Storm Front.
Not so much a Book Review, it is too amazing to be a review, 20 out of 10 if I had to give it a number...and no I didn't write that backwards.
Smack LIKE if ya enjoyed & SUBSCRIBE for more! & as always leave a comment.

Come follow this blind guy on twitter

This is a poor quality video, and the reviewer swears incessantly but his review is pretty interesting.

Cool Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland

Quote:

I just finished reading the 3rd book in Diana Rowland's Kara Gillian series, Secrets of the Demon and it turned out to be the best in the series thus far as it really added a lot to the overall series arc as well as telling a suspenseful and exciting free-standing story. Kara even has her own version of Butters who it turns out used to be an Olympic level gymnast, now a CSI tech!. Kara is kinda' Murphy with arcane talents. Kara Gillian is almost as much fun as Harry Dresden and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series. In fact, I'll begin reading the 4th book, Sins of the Demon right now! Three cheers for Diana Rowland and Kara Gillian!!!

All right, maaaaaybe there’s more news. In spring of 2012 my lovely editor agreed to buy three more books in the White Trash Zombie series, as well as four more in the Kara Gillian series. That brings the total books in each series to six and nine, respectively, and I’m pretty sure that’ll be enough to complete the story arcs I have planned for both.

Also, I just turned in White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, which will be out Jul 2, 2013. And, the next book in the Kara Gillian series will be Fury of the Demon, which will most likely be out near the end of the year.
Wow! Now I am in the position of having to wait for the next book! And boy-O-boy am I ever impatient! I really enjoyed this series. Also I see what treadlightly meant about book 5 taking the storyline in a different direction, but it didn't bother me in the least. I did miss the cop/investigator thing but not so much as to its lack detracting from the story.

Interesting, and I'm glad you liked it. I really missed the departure from the UF/police procedural feel and felt the move to a high-fantasy realm with its necessary descriptions slowed down the pacing too much. But for me, the biggest turnoff was that this installment smelled too much like Laurell K Hamilton.

I don't think I'll be rushing to read the next one unless there are some really positive reviews.
