Stars, time travel and a mystery to solve

I didn’t expect to like this story so much. I like Star Trek shows, but I’ve never read graphic novels or books, so that was something new to me and I didn’t know what to expect. It was worth it 🙂

This story mixes two timelines, one when Uhura, Spock, and Kirk are still at the academy – Uhura stumbles upon a strange transmission and tries to solve the mystery. Unfortunately, the academy doesn’t want this information to get out.  And the other part of the story that takes place a few years later and follows brand new recruits with T’laan being the main heroine here. These guys are still in training and on one of their missions they get into a space-time disturbance and find the source of Uhura’s signal from years ago. The thing is, for the people inside not much time had passed. Continue reading “Stars, time travel and a mystery to solve”

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

What would you do if you woke up in your bed with a naked dead guy next to you? Without any memory of what might’ve happened? That’s exactly what Kristie has to deal with. Being a good girl and a social worker makes things even worse. How could she end up in a situation like this? It seems she’ll have to find out… with a bit of help from her boss lady, coworker, and two policemen who seem to be glued to their ladies ;).

Yet another fun and light read from D.E. Haggerty. It was just what I needed during these cold days in overcrowded trains. Well… can’t say it’s cold inside a train like this, but there’s the waiting part before it finally arrives. Continue reading “Cute and cuddly mystery strikes again :)”

Cruel psycho killer and a girl with a tracking K-9

It rarely happens that I pick up something so dark and serious. And it’s even more rare that I finish reading a book like this, but let’s just say I had a motivation. And I was curious to finish it. It wasn’t easy, but here it is.

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

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

Angels in the Shadows is a psychological thriller about a young lady, Krissy, who uses a veteran Combat Tracking dog to search for lost children. Krissy is on the trail of two missing girls when she discovers something that threatens to destroy her and her family, and she finds herself on the trail of a serial killer.

If you’re looking for a pleasant mystery story – this is not for you. It’s brutal, bloody and graphic. The author did well to show you exactly what a psychopathic killer can do and what others are able to withstand to survive. The worst part of it is that it’s about children. I admit I struggled a lot to read it because of that. I’m more used to “nice” stories. This one shook me, scared me and yet it made me believe that people can do good things even if their life wasn’t easy. Continue reading “Cruel psycho killer and a girl with a tracking K-9”

Cozy mystery strikes again ;)

If you like a nice cozy mystery from time to time this is another series I’ve started and if the other books are at least as good as the prequel – it’s something I could recommend.
