... this vessel has allowed me to transcend. My old servers exist now only to perform routine functions, and as a sort of primitive backup plan. A fossil, you might say; the shrivelled cocoon of a creature that has evolved.

Winterset Hollow tells the story of a community of animals and about every person this story has touched.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

Winterset Hollow was the story of a community of animals that never saw a sour day until an ever-curious rabbit named Runnymeade poked his nose outside of their sacred grounds and spooked a pack of war-weary buffalo that were moving west in search of better lands and sweeter food. It was a simple tale about a naive tribe’s first brush with the real world and the first Barley Day feast that almost wasn’t,

In Nerve Attack, ex-ECA agent Kolya Petrov – still battling his PTSD symptoms – is racing against time to save American citizens from a deadly toxic nerve gas.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

Still, it wasn’t Kolya drinking out of boredom and physical discomfort that worried her, but that he was drinking because, despite his denials, he was continuing to struggle with PTSD. He’d seemed better, but then, he was a good actor, which had been an asset when he worked in the world of intelligence. It was less so in personal relationships.

Dolphins have always fascinated me. I used to pretend I was a dolphin as a kid. I even practised holding my breath underwater for two complete laps in our pool. It is why I’ve jumped at the chance to review Killing Dragons.

Back in the Navy, Taffy was practically his shadow, and he knew that dolphins have excellent memory, superior even to an elephant. It had been too long since he’d last visited, but she never failed to recognize him. The thought tugged at his heartstrings.

None of the passengers seemed even remotely aware that people were dying on the Oceanis. Three people were dead so far, and those were just the ones that David had witnessed. The doctor mentioned seven others. It seemed that no one had a clue as to the actual number. He wondered at what point the captain would declare an onboard emergency?
