Novembers books

For someone who claims not to care too much for the vampire genre I sure seem to be reading quite a bit of it lately. I just finished all 4 books (so far) in the Anna Strong, vampire series by Jeanne C. Stein. Very good series that I rated a 4 out of 5 on Goodreads. But that's for December and this is November's books. ☺

One new author for the month, Terri Persons. Blind Spot is the first in a series about a psychic FBI agent - she can see through a killer's eyes. But the catch is that she can't always interpret what she sees correctly and this leads to mistrust from her bosses and so she's moved from place to place. Now she's in Minnesota and her new boss is fascinated with the idea of a psychic agent on his payroll.
It's a fairly good book with a lot of ooo-ooo twists and surprises. Strange, spine-tingling but not spooky.

Jack O'Brien was an author I loved as a kid and I recently discovered he had a couple more books in his Silver Chief series, Silver Chief's Revenge. RCMP and his Husky always get their man!

Kelly McCullough the latest two in his Greek Gods fantasy. Cybermancy continues where Webmage left off and Ravirn, a descendant of the 3 Fates breaks into Hades to save his girlfriends webgoblin. But can he get himself out alive? Codespell has Raven trying to stay out of Zeus' crosshairs while fixing the mweb (transporter) virus that everyone thinks was his doing.
Very good books and I'm looking forward to another one.

Jennifer Chiaverini The Quilter's Kitchen is the latest Elm Creek Quilt novel and kind of disappointing. The story is about the remodeling of the Manor's kitchen and each 12 or so page chapter is about 5 pages of story and 7 pages of recipes.

The last 4 books are rereads of Mike Shepherd's Kris Longknife science fiction series in preparation for the new book that was coming out in November. Mutineer, Deserter, Defiant, Resolute were the 4 books I got to this month. I couldn't find Audacious on my bookshelf - it must be packed away in a box somewhere while waiting for me to build some new bookshelves - and I had to wait for the Library to get it in. All very good books reminiscent of Elizabeth Moon's Vatta's War series.
