The View From Monday - October 7, 2013

Happy first Monday in October! This is such a fun month - New York Comic Con takes place this coming weekend and Halloween is later this month. I just purchased a rather large skull that lights up on the inside (pictures at some point) and the kids and I are planning our Halloween graveyard.

I started reading Debra Mullins Prodigal Son (Tor, October 1, 2013). This is Debra's first paranormal romance novel. She has written many historical romance novels. So far I'm liking it but if one of the main characters mentions again that she put up her condo as collateral for a bond for someone who skipped and she may lose her condo, I may just delete the book. It's really annoying. I get that she's worried about it. I actually got it the first time. I tend to remember what I read. Now it's just annoying. I think I will keep count to see how many times it is mentioned.

Have you ever read a book where something is mentioned ad nauseum? Did it bother you? Did you finish the book?  What makes you stop reading a book?

Jessica arrives back in town to find her best friend missing and the most powerful witch in the country is blaming her for it. But before they can move to save her, the group is attacked.

On the run, Jessica and Rourke head to the mountains. Several surprises await them, but in order to save her father they are forced to leave for New Orleans early.

Arriving on the Vampire Queen’s doorstep unexpectedly, and bringing trouble on their heels, the Sects are thrown into an all out war. The vicious skirmish ends up forcing the vamps and Jessica to fight on the same team.

Her newly found mate has been kidnapped by a Goddess hell-bent on revenge, and Jessica is positive she can save him.

Aided by two vamps, two loyal Pack members, and one very reluctant human, Jessica must rescue her man while coming to terms with what being a wolf really means.

The second novel in the Jessica McClain series is a full on action adventure featuring one angry Goddess and plenty of monsters, demons, and a few newly risen beasties...

After living in hiding for the last twenty-six years, Jessica wakes up to find she's become a full-blooded werewolf -- claws, fangs, fur, everything. It was never supposed to happen: female werewolves don't exist.

When a mercenary killer comes looking for her, her Pack finds themselves caught in the middle of a war. They must rise up to protect her, but no one knows if she's means the end of their race-or just a new beginning.

When she's brutally attacked right after her fight, is it enough to finally earn her freedom off Compound, or will she be forced to endure the hatred even longer . . .
