The View From Monday - October 21, 2013

Happy Monday! Only 10 days until Halloween. It's finally become chilly here. There is frost on the lawns and a distinct nip in the air. I'm reading The Garden of Stone by Mark T. Barnes. This is the first novel in the Echoes of Empire series. The 2nd novel, The Obsidian Heart, was out last week. I'm really enjoying the lush world building. More on this when I'm done reading.

I did finish Prodigal Son (Truthseers 1) by Debra Mullins. I really enjoyed how Mullins is using the myth of Atlantis. The female lead, Cara McGaffigan, didn't do much for me. She became a stronger character as the novel went on, but I believe that she was not fully developed and was a bit one dimensional for me. The male lead, Rafe Montana, and his family were much more interesting. All in all it was a good story and I will continue reading this series. More on this in a longer review soon.

It's a very light release week with 2 debuts:

Nightlife by Matthew Quinn Martin;
