Review for Afraid by J.A. Konrath

Posted in Book Reviews, books, horror, reading, reviews with tags , , on May 21, 2013 by firequeen3

Hello again. Okay so here I am finally I do apologize it took so long to get this one review out. I know I have said more then a couple of times that I would finish and review this book.
I will admit that this book was hard for me to get through. I also know what kind of author Konrath is and so I decided to stick with it and I kept picking it up. I knew eventually it would end up being the kind of book I am use to from Konrath.
I was right. It took more then half the book for me. Now I say with me because I am sure there have been others that couldn’t put this book down.
When this book really dug in I was very glad I picked the book back up. It was a roller coaster ride for the sick and twisted. I think I even recognized a character from another book of Konrath’s.
It will terrify you. Small town America watch out.
Okay don’t want to give all the goodies away so I won’t go into details.
I hate to spoil books for other readers.
This book is well worth the money.
The heroines are strong and the bad guys are ohh soo bad.
Okay that’s all I have for now.
I am unsure as to what I will be reviewing next as I am having trouble deciding what to read next.
So I guess until next time.

Review for Dirty Martini by J.A. Konrath

Posted in Book Reviews, books, horror, reading, reviews with tags , , , , on February 19, 2013 by firequeen3

I know I had promised to review Afraid by Killborn but I thought it only right to finish the Jack Daniels series since I have kind of jumped around in this series.

So I am reviewing Dirty Martini by J.A. Konrath.
In this book jack finds herself dealing with an unknown killer who prefers to dose food with deadly diseases and chemicals.
She gets the first call just as her boyfriend has popped the question. Talk about bad timing on the killers part.
Also she finds out the her partners transfer she hadn’t known about went through. To top it off while in a cleaning rage she finds a letter meant for her when her mother thought she was going to die. Jack finds out her father isn’t really dead and that he up and left her mom and her.
We have some pretty heavy personal stuff going on amongst this crazed killer with a jet injector armed with some of the deadliest chemicals knows to man.
Just another day for Det. Jack Daniels.

That’s it for now. Be sure to check out this book and the whole series so far I am hooked.
Till next time when I will be reviewing Fuzzy Navel by J.A. Konrath.

A snippet of my book Crimson Intent by Crista Lynn

Posted in books, horror, snippet with tags , , , on January 9, 2013 by firequeen3

I awake slowly, in one hell of a daze. I try to clear the haze from my eyes, focus in on where I am.
Horror strikes me at once, as I am met by a gruesome sight. I close my eyes thinking this is just another of my nightmares. Alas when I open my eyes the horrific sight remains. My body wretches against the sight.
I immediately think what the hell have I done? Blood, the blood is every where. Questions race through my mind. Where am I? who’s blood is this? I look down at myself, both horror and relief grips me as I realized the blood isn’t mine. Yet I am drenched in crimson fluid. I will myself to get up. I try to steady my legs as I pull myself up. I realize I am in a meat packing company that’s not far from my flat. How did I get here? NO! I tell myself, focus. Dammit I must know who’s blood this is and worse yet, why am I covered in it? Oh god I whisper to myself as I see the carnage that has taken over the Slaughter house. My legs grow weak again. My stomach churns. The bile rises in my throat. A scream bubbles up yet no noise comes out.
There are body parts strewn all over the slaughter house. Sightless eyes of a detached head head stare back at me. This person I do not recognize. How the hell did I get here? I ask myself again. How did he get here? Most importantly,
What did I do to him?
