Copper Beach (Dark Legacy, Bk 1) by Jayne Ann Krentz aka Amanda Quick aka Jayne Castle (library copy) -
So I was really in the mood to catch up and decided to go ahead and read a library copy of this. I'll still need to get my own keeper copy, but for now... Anyway. I've grown so used to Arcane books now, it threw me a little to have a JAK book that was still loaded with psychic abilities but minus the Society. I almost felt like it was a jump back to her writing pre-Arcane except then the psychic stuff was hinted at, not an outright element of the plot. I liked the characters well enough, and I'm interested in reading more of this new series (Of course. It's JAK. Even if I wasn't pleased I would still read the next book.). I'm assuming that more is probably surrounding Sam Coppersmith's brother and sister.
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake (library copy) -
I saw a review for this at Mish's Book Shelf. It sounded intriguing, and I LOVE the cover, so I requested my library purchase it. I didn't realize at first that the narrator is a guy. That didn't effect the quality, but it was a first impression, so I'm mentioning it. The story was as interesting as it sounded. Now that I've read it I think I might actually call it YA horror. Anyway, Cas's quest gripped me and dragged me in. But I have to say (and I hope I'm not giving too much away) the part that hit me the hardest was the fate of the cat. I went to bed after I finished this and had to keep turning my mind away from that poor cat so I could sleep. Anyway, Apparently there's a second book due out in August called Girl of Nightmares which I definitely plan on reading.
