Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 123 - Lord of Night by Erica Ridley, Chain of Command by Frank Chadwick, Days Until Home by Mark Gardner

Lord of Night by Erica Ridley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Simon Spaulding lives in a world of black and white - that is until he meets Miss Dahlia Grenville. She brings him laughter and love where before there was none. The problem - Dahlia is not what and who she seems. I loved Simon and how he changes during the story. Dahlia brings out the best in many people and has enough love for several characters. I did think that there were parts of the book that could have been explored in more detail. Simon and his brother are one example. I also wondered how Dahlia's family reacted to she and Simon. Again I would have liked more action and less passive time in the two main characters heads but still a fun story. 

Chain of CommandChain of Command by Frank Chadwick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another very good addition to the Space Opera/Military Science Fiction world. Lieutenant Sam Bitka, U.S. Naval Reserve, is one step down from regular naval officers but finds that he has to step up to a command position. What happens is no surprise but it is very well presented. There are several very tense moments as an unexpected attack takes place and Sam and the fleet have to do the impossible. As fun read with interesting characters, good backstory and great world building.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Days Until HomeDays Until Home by Mark Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you like a book where anything that can go wrong does go wrong Days until Home is for you. The crew of the Kenwood have to deal with a little bit of every kind of danger starting with sabotage. The characters are interesting and the science sounds very real. An interesting book. I have to admit I got a little tired of all the disaster as I read the book. I was also still in the dark about some of the characters as the story ended.
