Castle In A Red Storm Book Review

Castle In A Red Storm: A Novelette (Assembly Of Planets Book 1)

By L.W. Brook

Castle In A Red Storm: A Novelette (Assembly Of Planets Book 1) by [Brook, L. W.]

Castle In A Red Storm, A Novelette: A long since isolated Jupiter returns to the Assembly Of Planets to testify at the council's hearing. 

Assembly Of Planets Series: When the lead council's best interests are brought into question, the Assembly votes to reconstruct the ten seats of council. In doing so, selected candidates are subjected to numerous trials of fate and justice. Jupiter, a self-denounced member of the original council, quickly finds herself an involuntary candidate and the single connection to a string of murders. 

Castle In A Red Storm is the first released novelette of this mind twisting fantasy series.

MY REVIEW OF Castle in a Red Storm

In this story, the planets are personified. Each planet has a place on the council, and their job is to uphold the original plan of the universe. Each planet’s moon has also been given a body, but they are in servitude to their respective planet. The council has been brought up on charges of giving a set of orders without assembly approval. A court is held and assembly votes to reconstruct the council, meaning relieve them of their duties and vote new members in their place. Jupiter had already been kicked out, making her a prime candidate. She isn’t interested, but being a key player, will she be allowed to bow out, or will they try to manipulate her for their own selfish reasons?

I like the idea of giving the planets and moons human-like bodies. It made for an interesting plot. Each one had a personality befitting their namesake. I thought that was clever. It’s been so long since I learned the names of each planet’s moons, that I had forgotten them. This refreshed my memory. The story was left up in the air, making me want to find out how it ends. I guess I’ll just have to read the next installment to find out.

The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel Review

The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel

By David Weiskircher

The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel by [Weiskircher, David]
Alex Drew and Claire Tierney – along with their dog, Joe – return. Recently married, Alex and Claire find themselves with a 3-year-old Mexican girl that had been smuggled across the border. They find her on sacrosanct Apache land, on a piece of land called the Cursed Hill. They also find the girl’s mother murdered. In one of her boots is a ripped piece of paper. On it is Alex’s name. 

In the midst of illegal smuggling of people and drugs across the border, Alex and Claire race to solve these mysteries. Meanwhile, the pristine beauty of their New Mexico hometown is at stake when a new mine opens on the outskirts of town. 

The third in a series. 

MY REVIEW OF The Cursed Hill

When Alex witnesses a murder on Apache land, he doesn’t hesitate to ride in to assess the situation, even if it is on the cursed hill that is to be avoided. The victim was a Mexican woman, and she had hidden her three year old daughter, Rosa, behind a group of boulders, thus, saving her from the shooter. When it is discovered that the victim was carrying a piece of paper with Alex’s name on it, he is further compelled to investigate the woman’s reason for seeking him out. But first, he must face the wrath of Chief Bodaway for trespassing on reservation land, and taking the victim from his jurisdiction.

I always enjoy reading Alex Drew novels. I like how they are modern day westerns, and updated for situations with today’s occurrences. The plot is always well thought out. Each of the characters are explored to give full depth to them. The introduction of Chief Bodaway was a good fit for the plot, and I hope will make more appearances in future chapters. I loved his personality, and the camaraderie between him and Alex. The dry humor throughout kept me entertained, as usual. You can’t help but like a witty cowboy and Indian (pun intended).
