Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 147 - Agatha Raisin and the Witches' Tree by M.C. Beaton, Neogenesis by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, Victorious Dead by Marie Andreas

Agatha Raisin and the Witches' Tree (Agatha Raisin #28)Agatha Raisin and the Witches' Tree by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Agatha finds herself in another dangerous place. After months of lost pets and wandering husbands there is a murder and Agatha is hired to find the guilty party. I love Agatha and always enjoy how she finds a man to obsess over. This time nothing comes of it and the obsession does not last long. However after one murder others occur and Agatha finds herself in danger. Once again Agatha and Charles seem to connect and then disconnect. Small spoiler, Agatha saves Charles from a very bad marriage. A fun addition to the series.

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

Neogenesis (Liaden Universe, #21)Neogenesis by Sharon Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am always excited when a new Liaden Universe book comes out. The last few book have been leading up a interesting conclusion. The first part of the book is still part of that journey and I found that part to be a little slow. About the middle of the book a lot of the scenes are on Surebleak and feature Van Con and Mira. The Uncle plays a big part as he has not also rescued Davv from a certain death his hand is reaching into the past trying to save something he built in the other universe. Theo is back bringing things and people from the past. There is a lot going on in the second half of the book. Some problems are solved but at the end a brand new problem arrives on Surebreak. I love seeing some of the original characters but missed seeing others. Here's hoping that there will be more of the originals in the next book. A nice addition to the series.

Victorious Dead (The Asarlaí Wars #2)Victorious Dead by Marie Andreas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Vaslisha Tor Dain is in over her head. Not only is she seeing two different versions of a crew member who died now alive and well but not recognizing her a new danger has arrived. This is a very busy book. It goes from one dangerous situation to one even more dangerous. Turns out the long dead Asarlaí are trying to come back and are using her ship, the Warrior Wench, to open a rift in the galaxy. If that is not enough she has other enemies who want to capture or kill her and her crew. A interesting addition to this series. I look forward to book three.
