Rich bad boy and his endangered empire

Have you ever heard about Largo Winch? His stories started with a few novels and graphic novels, but my first meeting with him was through a TV-Show. I’d love to watch it again, but it seems impossible to get it :/. There was a movie a few years ago, but somehow I missed it.

Anyway, I had these two books in my library for years and I finally decided to read them. I wanted to do that for a while now, but somehow always ended up with a different book in my hands.

Monsters, quirky humor and first glimpses of main story

I’ve finally started re-reading this series! One book down, other are waiting for their turn :D. It might take a while, but damn it’s worth it!

A little message to every fantasy lover out there: if you still haven’t read the Witcher series – what are you waiting for? Yes, re-reading these assured me that my previous warm feelings weren’t misplaced. It’s a fantastic book and a great introduction to something bigger.

Goodreads | Amazon

I could just pass on the whole Goodreads blurb, but I kind of like it, so here it is:

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin. And a cold-blooded killer.

His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

These stories will let you meet Geralt and some of the other characters that show up in the main series. They will give you some background, show you the world and explain how Geralt came from curing a curse to requesting a Law of Surprise.

Turtles… turtles everywhere…

These two stories were my first written meeting with certain mutated turtles. I’ve seen plenty cartoons about them when I was a kid, but somehow never got my hands on the written stories. When I’ve picked these two books up I though it would concentrate on some event or certain characters. Instead, I got a set of short tales from characters past and present times. Even some from their past lives.

I received a copy of these books from the publisher via NetGalley.

Hitman on the run

Dead Man's PartyDead Man’s Party by Jeff Marsick, Barnett Scott

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-half-full-icon

Goodreads | Amazon US

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads blurb:

For the world’s most feared executioner — known only as Ghost — arranging such a Party for himself is a last resort… a way to go out on his own terms and at the top of his game. The invitations are sent, the butchers are coming… And that’s precisely when Ghost uncovers a truth that changes everything.

Here I was, reading the next graphic novels after three I didn’t like, thinking “it’s a story about a hitman, why did I even picked it up?”. Boy, was I wrong! I loved it! Well, maybe not loved, but it was really good.

This story is filled with fantastic action scenes, pretty good plot and I already wish I had next volume to read because it ended like there should be a second one. Continue reading “Hitman on the run”
