Very crazy stuff that nowadays could never happen. There is no more whimzy crime now that technology has evaded our lives. Its even worse stuff that happens now!

Wherever There Is Light: A Novel by Peter Golden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Atria Books and netgalley for this arc.This is a time stopping, life-changing, perspective expanding book!It has everything I love about historical fiction. Love, art, life, and sexy heroes and heroines.I didn’t know the history of what was happening in the States at the same time as WWII in Europe, but I feel like I have a changed outlook at the world now. I love how Peter Golden presented us with a brand new look of history in this love story!

The Conqueror’s Wife: A Novel of Alexander the Great by Stephanie Thornton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My favorite historical period is ancient times so I was so looking forward to this book. Stephanie Thornton is a the top of her game. She really immerses us into the lives, time, and places of antiquity. I loved all the strong and sometimes evil women that bring this book together.

Seize the Night by Christopher Golden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books and netgalley for this arc.Didn’t think this was all that scary. It was a lot of very original short stories but ultimately confusing and not as cohesive as these collections usually turn out. But the quality of the writing won out.
