The Brotherhood of the Wheel by R.S. Belcher

The Brotherhood of the WheelThe Brotherhood of the Wheel by R.S. Belcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I want more of this series..like yesterday.

Urban fantasy done absolutely 130 percent correctly, tons of action, fun, great characters I cared about, and a world that hinted at much deeper (which by God, he better go back to)

This tale rocked pretty much from top to bottom, seriously took me about 2 days to read. My issues are few, I only docked it one star, this was mainly due to how things wrapped up. The final act was a bit too tidy and clean, but considering I hope this is a new series, it's easily forgiven.

go buy this and buy Nightwise too, pay Mr. Belcher so he can feed my jones with new stuff.

The Fireman by Joe Hill

The FiremanThe Fireman by Joe Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read a ARC of this, and I am a bit torn. First of all, Joe Hill can WRITE, (well duh..) I enjoyed this book cover to cover, I loved the concept, I loved the characters, the dialogue was crisp and realistic, and the world was deep and very interesting. These are all things, checkmarks for me wanting to read your stuff and buy your book.

He hits them all, and goes way above the mark in all counts, so Kevin, you ask, what's the damn problem?

In my opinion, it all feels too familiar, Mr. Hill's writing for obvious reasons, bears a bit of his famous father's footprint. The Fireman is a great read, and will be a great movie or television show or whatever option it has already gotten from Hollywood. It is worth your time and money, but can you read it without feeling deja vu? no..

take that as you will, the strength of the story is worth the read.
