NEWEST HOT SAUCE REVIEWS
Christine Merrill’s The Truth About Lady Felkirk is almost a great, complicated read. Maybe if it has more pages? It’s very readable, but missing something.
Christmas anthologies tend to be more misses than hits, unless you’re soused on alcohol, that is. Wild West Christmas is no different. Nothing wild here.
Denzel Washington brings on his most piercing glare and scowl to The Equalizer. The impressive body count by the hero here, alas, includes the plot as well.
Ooh, Renaissance Italy! The scenery is lovely, and the narrative is pretty engaging. But this is a revenge plot with so little emotional pay-off, so… eh.
Falling for a nerd in 1908 is a wild, exuberant, insane rush. I’ve no idea how true is that, but The Songbird’s Seduction makes me a convert to the faith.
Tortuous writing and inadequate illustrations make this one a rather peculiar read. Good luck getting kids to enjoy the walls of text!
Dead but Dreaming is an entertaining anthology – solid stories, without any duds to mar the ultimate Dark Ones experience. Cthulhu would be so proud.
“Your Planet Needs You!” says Dave Reay. A nice sentiment, but asking kids to get Mum and Dad to move to a house with wind turbines? Yes, that will work.
A Walk Among the Tombstones is an entertaining stop-those-serial-killers movie. It won’t blow anyone’s mind or change the world, but it does its job well.
Our charming heroine gets an upgrade from Slave Girl to Barbarian’s Concubine, getting into trouble because she can’t keep them together for even a second.
5 Oogies: Excellent
4 Oogies: Good
3 Oogies: Okay
2 Oogies: Oh dear
