A Fist Full of Fire by Misti Wolanski

This is a great love story and pretty untypical at the same time.  I had fun reading this book and realized quickly I’d have to pay attention to make sure I didn’t miss any queues.  The characters were believable even though from different races and I like the intertwining of races versus environment illustrating that we can all get along.  The story itself was pretty standard boy meets girl, someone falls in love, someone doesn’t and someone has a great surprise at the end. 

What made this unique were definitely the characters and the setting.  It gave my imagination a place to go with the authors descriptions of the scenery as well as the players themselves.  I liked traveling this journey with the two main characters and have to say that I was pretty sure of the ending but still had to read on to make sure I was sure!

Residual Belligerence by C.G. Hatton

I could not put this book down.  It was intriguing from the beginning and the setting was unusual as well as captivating.  I loved that the main character was a bit of a bad boy and that he was trying to recover from something that may not have been entirely legal  … but he can’t remember.  There are so many twists and turns as well as a lot of surprises that makes this a definite must read.

I love the writing style, too.  Quick descriptions, great dialogue as well as wonderful story lines.  I didn’t have any trouble following the pathways set by the author and loved the way tension was built up.  I also liked the brief intermissions throughout to discuss strategy and keep us abreast of the developments from management.  Great book.
