In My Own Words:
Described by others as ‘annoying’ and/or ‘impish’ – sometimes as ‘oh *that* guy’ – I care nothing for the standards of society and plan to be in the tropics when they come to their senses and beat a path to the door.

Once Upon a Time in Hell by Guy Adams
This, the second in the series "Heaven's Gate" series, follows after "The Good, The Bad, and The Infernal" in the story line. I'd recommend the earlier title first, but it's unlikely that you actually need to read 1 prior to this. You'll thank me for the fact you've read the earlier one, but not because this makes more sense as a result; simply because you've had a good time reading the earlier title.

Phenomenal stuff and well worth the price of admission, and has me scrabbling around to locate Restoration: The World House, Book 2Read more

Having come to know Cherie Priest first (through a convention) and the books she writes as a result of thinking "this is a wonderful person", it's quite possible that I was pre-destined to like this book as much as I enjoyed the previous book of hers read, "Boneshaker". That said, "Dreadnought" is not the same book, but is just the same level of fascinating read. While last year's book was set in a small geographic area and stressed character and rules of the world over action (while still including the latter very much), "Dreadnought" covers nearly half of the USA geographically (as the heroine rushes to the side of her dying father)… Read more
