Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 335 - Planetside by Michael Mammay, The Christmas Hirelings by Mary Elizabeth Braddon

PlanetsidePlanetside by Michael Mammay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a very hard to put down book. Each action just leads to another action and another action all the while not knowing exactly what is going on. That is true for both the reader and the main characters. Colonel Carl Butler gets a job that is not at all what it seemed. It seems cut and dried but turns out what he is looking for is not what he finds. I loved the book but was a little disappointed in the ending. While the problem is solved the consequences are left up in the air. I was glad to see that this is a two book series and we will see Colonel Butler again in August of 2019.

This was a best read of the year on several sites and I agree that they had it right.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Richard Armitage does a very good job of he voices in The Christmas Hirelings. This is a book written and published before 1923. The book starts a little slow as the history of Sir John has to be revealed. When the three children show up for Christmas it is obvious who they are. What is not obvious is if Sir John will change his mind about events of the past. A nice sweet Christmas story with Muppet stealing the show. This was a free book with my Audible subscription.
