#AlternateHistory

#unpopularopinion For me, this was unnecessarily convoluted and tedious. I liked the concept and the alternate histories, but the story often dragged and I detested Kite. I don‘t feel like he was ever redeemed and I hated his mood swings. It probably would have been easier to follow all the time jumps in print, but the pacing was so slow, filled with extraneous detail, I know I would have bailed before the 1/4 mark. #moremehthanyay

In this one, our beloved pair has arrived in Australia after .... Well, you should read the first 5 books. This is the sixth. For the uninitiated, this is Napoleonic Wars with dragons.

In this story, the Civil War never happened and slavery still exists in 4 southern states. Victor is a black man in the North who hunts escapees. As we gradually learn his story, he gets involved in a dangerous plot that he may not survive. Superb story. There‘s one little bit at the end that didn‘t quite work for me, but I otherwise loved it.

vivastory I thought it was great. Winters is such an interesting author. 2d
Hooked_on_books @vivastory He really is. I enjoyed his Last Policeman trilogy. I‘d like to read more of his. 2d
vivastory I think you'd like Golden State & this one is a creepy psychological book 2d
Hooked_on_books @vivastory I didn‘t remember he wrote Golden State! I really liked that one. I‘ll be looking for Bedbugs. It sounds fascinating—thanks! 2d

I really wanted to like this one. I just got annoythatvit was exclusively Jane being the badass. No one else can kill zombies. Everybody else sucks. I would have appreciated more character building.

Last few days I finished reading:
- the tagged book, an excellent read, #0.3 in the Dead Djinn Universe. I really enjoyed it, I can barely wait to get the first in the series, A Master of Djinn; and
- Isis by Douglas Clegg, my way back April #BookSpin. @TheAromaOfBooks
Both picks!

Best thing is these 2 reads got my a #BookSpinBingo for July!

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!!! 2w

This is actually a couple of short stories and I wish the format had been longer to allow for more detail and character development. Interesting premise and a lot of knife slinging.
