Blood Oath the President's Vampire - Surprise secret service

Blood Oath (The President's Vampire, #1)Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It was slightly like a Dan Brown historically detailed suspense with the paranormal mixed in heavily. Of course that fact that it was a vampire always draws me in but this was a newer twist than I've read before. I hope this author rights more about Cade. The chapters were short and to the point and kept the story moving forward rapidly. I would like to see more political trappings in future books if there are any. I this Mr. Fransworth left enough open that he could build on for sequels to come.

Beautiful Darkness- Sophomore suspense

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Three, Two, One WOW. This books was as good as the first. My fault is that I try really hard to figure out what is being set up as a suprise plot twist in the story. With this book I totally missed alot until the autors would have me know it and I just wasn't thinking as detailed as the world they created it. One thing I don't understand is how so many fans of this book can become so enamoured with John B when there is really so little to be known about him. This is the best plot tease to leave a reader wanting more in the next book. I have true feelings of angst for these characters and the unknowing of almost every part of this book. I reviewed BC in audio and moved right on to BD in print. I have started BD in audio and love that they kept the narrator. These books are true sothern gothic drama and a very enjoyable read.

The Journey-The Gardian's of Gahool - 2nd slow but leading up to something

The Journey (Guardians of Ga'Hoole, #2)The Journey by Kathryn Lasky

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I found this book to pace a lot slower that the first book in the series but it does seem to be building to something bigger beyond this book. I read that the first three books are what has been made into the movie. Having read the first two I am going to go see the movie before it leave and then do the third later. This books are a good safe easy read for younger readers and I have read from others that Ms. Lasky's new wolf series is really good too.

How to Grow Up and Rule the World, by Vordak the IncomprehensibleHow to Grow Up and Rule the World, by Vordak the Incomprehensible by Scott Seegert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book along with my 12yo son, for his book report. I found the book cute and typically young boy oriented. My son who doesn't necessarily like to read like this book and said it was really funny. He also really like the comedy in the artwork. This books would make a great gift for young boys.
