  • #59 Secrets in Death by J.D. Robb

    There is fun knowing you are going into a book and certain things will happen. You know that Eve and Roarke will have a few romantic evenings during the book and Eve will catch the bad guy. Eve is primary on the scene as she sees the victim die but doesn't see the actual cut that bled out the gossip columnist in the bar. As the case progresses we find out that no one liked the dead woman and it comes out she has been blackmailing people and making a tidy amount of money for herself in the process. By the end you find out why the victim is the way she is and the reader is reminded that Eve will get justice for her no matter the type of person she is.

  • #58 Clean Room, Volume 1: Immaculate Conception by Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt, Quinton Winter,

    Clean Room, Volume 1: Immaculate Conception

    by Gail Simone, Jon Davis-Hunt, Quinton Winter, Todd Klein, Jenny Frison

    A reporter has been trying to investigate a cult of a self-help guru that some of her followers kill themselves for no apparent reason. Chloe lost her fiancÚ to Astrid and her group and she will not stop until she finds the reasons for it. By the end of this collection you have some idea of what the cult is about but no real conclusions. It was a bit too creepy for me so I don't think I'll be picking up the next one.

  • #57 Cinnamon by Neil Gaiman, Divya Srinivasan

    When a princess doesn't speak her royal parents will do anything to get her to talk. A tiger takes them up on the offer and gets her to talk. A simple kids story with very good art.

  • #56 Monstress, Vol. 2: The Blood by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda

    This one has Maika looking for more info about the what is inside her and you find out more about her family. You get flashbacks of her as a child with her mother and meet her goddessfather , a pirate that helps her move find the island she needs to get to for more answers. You do find out more about the monster inside her and at some point we are going to find out more about her father. As usual the art is amazing in this book.

  • #55 Saga, Vol. 7 by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

    I enjoy reading Saga even though it likes to kick you in the feels. It reminds you over and over that life isn't fair especially when you are on the run from the government. And yet the deaths in the last issue of this one were the worst. Bounty hunters are still after them, the tree needs fuel and Prince Robot still want to get to his son. The overall plot doesn't move and this is more of the time spent in one place but since this is Hazel telling the story of her life it makes sense since she makes friends on the comet.

    Overall a great read and now I have to wait for the next collection.

  • #54 Harley Quinn, Volume 3: Red Meat by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner

    This story arc does some jumping back and forth through time and give the backstory on Red Tool. There is still a hanging plot thread that is introduced in this book that doesn't get resolved by the end of it. Power Girl does make a cameo in this one book as well to help defeat a baddie that thanks to Harley and Red Tool going down in the tunnels in an earlier book made it possible for the baddie to get out of his prison down in the tunnels. A fun read and I'm interested in what happens with the one plot thread that was left hanging in this book.

  • #53 Midnight Blue-Light Special by Seanan McGuire

    The second book starts a few months after the Discount Armageddon. Dave's Fish and Strips is now a burlesque club that features the cryptids so the customers think it is all fake. But not everything is right. The Covenant is coming to town to check on Dominic and get ready to purge NYC of the cryptic population. Verity does come do a decision about living two lives in New York as she is working hard to protect the cryptid population and gather forces that can fight back against the Covenant while the ones that can't fight try and flee or find safety somewhere. A good conclusion to this story arc and the next book will feature one of Verity's siblings.

  • #52 Mira's Last Dance by Lois McMaster Bujold

    This novella needs to be read after Penric's Mission otherwise you will miss the entire setup of how Penric got to where he is. He is still traveling with the brother and sister he met in the previous story and they have one more town to travel through and a short trip before they can cross the border to safety. But to do this Penric must rely on his demon to help him craft a plan of escape and misdirection. Lots of good chuckles throughout the story and as usual Bujold crafts a wonderful story.

  • #51 The Ghost Line by Andrew Neil Gray, J.S. Herbison

    The Martian Queen has been mothballed for a long time and a few people see this a gold mine waiting to be plundered. But all is not right with the ship that Saga has been hired to raid. Her boss knows secrets about the ship because she has been there before with another crew and has an agenda that she hasn't shared with Saga or her husband. This is a tight story that goes from space piracy to something else in the end. A good story and possibly a nice setup to a future story but isn't needed for closure to this one.

  • #50 Harley's Little Black Book by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti

    This is a collection of one shots of Harley paired with various people. The most off the wall pairing was with Lobo. So, for the most part you get to see her interact with different people that normally she wouldn't cross paths in her regular series. Overall it was an ok collection but not necessary to read to keep up with the story line.
