Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 104 - Desperate Fire by Christopher G. Nutgall, We Bleed by River Shayne,

Desperate Fire (Angel in the Whirlwind, #4)Desperate Fire by Christopher G. Nuttall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again Kat Falcone helps save the day but not without a very big cost. The Theocracy has shown that they will not hesitate to devastate an entire planet rather than give it up. Operation Hammer is an assault on Ahura Mazd, the home planet of the Theocracy. This massive operation is seen as the only way to both stop and win the war. Kat pays a massive personal price for the victory while at home an equally massive strike hits her family. This is space opera on a grand scale. Start at the beginning to follow Kat as she fights battle after battle. While this is the last book in the Angel in the Whirlwind arc Kat will be back in another series soon.

We Bleed (The Red Lily Saga)We Bleed by River Shayne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a novella that is the beginning of a serial series. The story is told in the first person by two different characters who are enemies. There is a lot action, some character building, and minimum world building. I did not warm to either of the main characters but the excerpt from the next release did more to catch and hold my attention. I will try the next release and then decide if I want to continue with the series.
