Dead Drift

Nice finish to the series.  It was nice how there was again 2 stories going on at the same time.  The ending of the previous books story was done evenly and it wasn't rushed.  I liked how it was able to be followed along.  Even though you knew there would be these twists and turns, and they were pretty easy to guess what was coming, but it was still nice.  Trying not to spoiler it, the 2nd story was finished nicely and there was a problem towards the end, but the way the author finished was totally believable, and actually...

Avengers Endgame

Awesome. What an ending to a long 10 years and 20+ movie adventure.  When I came out of the movie it was like a relaxing deep breathe letting out.  It is over, and I was satisfied.  They didn't do cheap tricks to fix everything.

I don't know how to explain my reaction to this book.  As the ratings show I have mixed feelings.  The Characters, the world they are in, and the situations they are put through are very good.  But all through the book I felt disconnected.  I wasn't able to get invested in the book.  I can not place my finger on what it was.  I really like military series books so I am surprised but I have no desire to read the other 2 books in the series.

After Bailey Adams sees something she shouldn't, trouble follows her home--leaving her running for her life.

Disappointing end to the series. This book felt like it was just phoned in. I was not gripped with this one. It just seemed to move along. It doesn't help that the main villain wasn't figured out, but just all of a sudden outed. Not much to say but I almost stopped reading it halfway through, but I wanted to finish the series.

Chapter and Verses

a copy of a document from Daniel Fuller Chapters and Verses -- Late Comers by Daniel P. Fuller Parchment or papyrus were difficult to come by as materials upon which to write, and thus in many ancient texts of both the Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament there is the space-saving device of scriptio...

When librarian Laura Griffin's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned PI James "Dev" Devlin to help. But the deeper he digs, the more he begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the clearer…

1st half - Laura and Dev was nice but not the main story.  A lot more emphasis was on the run away kid Darcy and Mark.  Slow book, 40% done and the story feels like we should be 70%.  Afraid there is going to be a lot of useless scaring of the teen Darcy.  Reading a series of books where the PI's use blackberry phones and hold them while driving is funny.  Bluetooth is so normal for me this is interesting.

2nd half was better but I was right.  Just like the 1st book, to make it work the author had to have the great criminal do something out of character and not forced to bring the book to a conclusion.  So it fell apart at the end.

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the…

It was good.   It was well laid out.  Days passed between paragraphs which made it realistic.  The slow uncovering was nice.  No trying to throw the audience off with weird stuff.  But with the way she did the story I don't think it would make sense with mis-directions.

Quick read.
