Short and Sweet Book Review # 289 - Field of Bones by J.A. Jance, Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan

Field of Bones (Joanna Brady, #18)Field of Bones by J.A. Jance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Told for multiple points of view Field of Bones has it all. There is a great mystery, a unexpected birth, and several new characters. I loved seeing how Joanna handled being on maternity leave. The betting pool about how long she would stay home was a nice funny touch. The mystery is very complex and it looked like it would be hard to solve. As a reader we knew all the different players and Jance does a great job weaving all of that knowledge into a interesting and seat of your pants story. As the story progresses each characters comes up with the knowledge to solve the who, what, when and where.

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

Ignite the Stars (Ignite the Stars, #1)Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I started Ignite the Stars I thought the book was part of a series and I had missed the previous book or books. Turns out I was wrong. This is the first book in a new series. There are two main characters who fit the stock for YA. Flight Master, Knives is the main male characters and he wants to be out of the shadow of his famous father. Ia Cōcha is a 17 year old rebel who is forced to attend the military academy. These two are aided in the story by a group of side characters. Much of the story line is character development, back story and world building. The action, tension, danger and betrayal all lead to binding them into a team ready to face the next book in the series.
