For those like me who do not read straight romance novels, J. D. Robb is a pseudonym for romance industry powerhouse Nora Roberts. The near-future SF elements are light and breezy, the police-procedural plot is engaging, and the entertainment value is palpable. A wonderful summer beach read for the slightly to deeply nerdy.
This series was a great one for running around in the car while doing errands. I highly recommend it as a family adventure audiobook for your summer road trip with kids grade age 9 and up. In this volume Carter and Sadie must find a way to help Ra regain his former glory, in the hope that he can be the key to defeating Apophis.
This series was a great one for running around in the car while doing errands. I highly recommend it as a family adventure audiobook for your summer road trip with kids grade age 9 and up. In this final installment in the trilogy, Sadie and Carter must overcome obstacles both mystical and personal to save the world.
This volume put's protagonist Tony's sister Toni into the spotlight as she navigates deciding her romantic future and possibly the future of the entire world. She will put it all on the line as an agent of NASA, while denying awkward aspects of her personal past, including licking psychedelic frogs and prior romantic entanglements.
For longtime fans of Anita Blake, here's more of what you've come to love about her and her entourage of hunky vampires, werewolves, and other shapeshifters, as well as the sociable sociopaths in her life. An apparently new foe with never before seen supernatural abilities appears unexpectedly in the midst of family drama, Micah's family drama, that is. I suspect this book was rushed in some way, because even with my blazing fast read I noticed a few minor continuity errors, and the conclusion felt a bit forced to me. Still, it was an enjoyable trip, seeing the main character mellow and contemplate her version of commitment. I doubt in general that Anita Blake fans read her primarily for the tight plotting, anyway. Enjoy!
