Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 177 - Through a Dark Glass by Barb Hendee, Persepolis Rising by James S.A. Corey

Through a Dark GlassThrough a Dark Glass by Barb Hendee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in a new series by Barb Hendee and it is the first book I have read by Barb Hendee. I found it fascinating and very hard to put down. This is three stories about three different brothers and the one woman who must choose which one to wed. Part of each story starts with the trip after the wedding and each one features a different brother as the chosen husband. All of this happens when Megan of Chaumont finds a magic mirror that shows her life with each bother. I really interesting concept and a wonderfully fun read. I stayed up late to finish the book and see which brother she chose. I can't wait to see who uses the mirror in the next book.

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

Persepolis Rising (The Expanse, #7)Persepolis Rising by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed the voice Jefferson Mays used in leading Persepolis Rising. As the book started I though it was going to be the best story yet. Then it slowed down as Corey built the framework for the next chapter in the continuing story. The lost colony world of Laconia comes through the gate with new and dangerous technology and a plan for the human race. Danger and death follow and the crew of the Rocinante are drawn into the struggle. Nothing is solved and the crew seem to be in more trouble than ever before as the book ends. This is the set up for the next part of the series
