Musing Monday's, September 1, 2014

TC is in the sun musing about the chipmunk she sees out the window.
Hopefully that is all she does.  So far this month she has presented me
 with two chipmunks - one alive and one dead but both in my bedroom.
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week.Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading.
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to talk.

Today I am musing about  Ann Aguirre's latest book.  Havoc is the second book in the Dred Chronicles.  Set in a space station where criminals are dumped it is filled with characters I would not want in my neighborhood.  Dred is the Queen of one of the sections in the station.  Each section is run by one of the convicts and each is run very differently.  Perdition, book one, followed Dred's war to save and strengthen her section of the station.  Book two starts when the supple ship arrives but instead of new convicts and supplies it has a group of mercenaries that are there to clean out (kill) the convicts.  It seems someone has a new use for the station.  Once again the Dred Queen and her chosen champion Jael must fight to survive.  Even though I would not want them anywhere near me or mine the book is very entertaining.  There is just something about people who fight and succeed in order to survive in even the worst condition.
