Brain Food – Episode 5

Hello one and all, I am here to present to you the fifth installment of my book review series.

Today, I will be looking at Cherie Priest’s Urban fantasy vampire novel, Bloodshot.

To find out more about the authour as well as her other works of fiction, you can visit her website here.

I’m not sure what’s going to be coming up next, as I have lots of other books to look through, but it’s going to be great, I can assure you. There is a wealth of fiction out there that seems to go under the wire and not receive the attention they’re due, and in my own small way, I hope I’m directing some towards those books.

  1. We have got to get you an iPad. For the sake of your eyesight. You can probably find an iPad one for a really good deal.

    Priest is a really talented author who consistently puts out some excellent literary gems. I’ve been a huge fanboy of hers for going on a decade.

    Other titles you should check out:

    Boneshaker (this novel kicked ass)
    Clementine (it features my ancestor Croxon Hainey. Read the book and you’ll understand why)
    The Eden Moore Series

    Fuck it, check em all out.

    You won’t be disappointed.

    • I finally did say “Hell with it” and got a KoBo eReader instead. It does everything an iPad does, is much sturdier, and has wi-fi so I can surf and download books for reading.

      And I did grab Boneshaker. It looks awesome just from the description!

      Although this week, I’m concentrating on RJ Scott’s Fire Trilogy, starting on the first book. I got it on my eReader so that my eyes won’t hurt so much anymore. An iPad probably wouldn’t last too long with me though. I’d end up drooling over it too much. So… SHINY!!!

      • Let me know how the Fire trilogy is. I got the second book but I wasn’t feeling it. If it’s worth reconsideration, then I’ll definitely give it another go.

  2. Great review of a great book! I was pleasantly surprised by Bloodshot — not just because Raelene is totally awesome, but because it was a different voice for Priest to use. I loved Boneshaker and Dreadnought, but the prose was a little too spare for my taste. Raelene’s got more pizzazz in the phrasing.
