Persnickety Snark’s FIVE Challenge, Day 3: Great Series

Today, December 23, is the third day of Persnickety Snark’s FIVE Challenge, and today’s particular challenge is…Great Series!

Adele’s list may be YA only, but I’m including all age brackets. Oh, and these aren’t all published in 2010 – I just read them in 2010. Better late than never 😉

Anyhoo, here we are, counting down from 5 to 1 – yes, I do play favourites:

[REVIEW] Hell Fire – Ann Aguirre

Ann Aguirre
Hell Fire (Corine Solomon, Book 2)
Penguin Roc (US & CA: 6th April 2010); Hachette Gollancz (UK: June 2010; AU: July 2010)
Buy (US) Buy (UK) Buy (CA) Buy (Worldwide)

Book 1 dealt with Chance’s mother’s disappearance, and Book 2 here investigates Corine’s mother’s death. Hell Fire lacks most of the Mexican flavour that I adored in Blue Diablo, so in comparison America’s South lacks pizzazz. Actually, as a town that shuns modern technology and conveniences, Kilmer lacks a lot.

There’s some weird shiz involving human sacrifice, and scary shiz around the myth that you can hear dead people’s spirits on the radio if you’re young – or just before you die.

I’m still Team Chance, and new character Shannon is a true rarity – a precocious teen that DOESN’T get on my nerves. But there’s a lot less of my favourite characters, Chuch and Eva.

[COVER ART] Ann Aguirre’s HELL FIRE (UK); Karen Kincy’s OTHER; Yolanda Sfetsos’s BETTER OFF ALONE & R. J. Anderson’s WAYFARER (US)

Here we have:

-Ann Aguirre’s Hell Fire (UK)
-Karen Kincy’s Other
-Yolanda Sfetsos’s Better Off Alone
-R. J. Anderson’s Wayfarer (US/CA)

I have no idea what Better Off Alone looks like, because it’s so dark and maybe my computer settings are too low. I can see a zigzag design at the top…and that’s it. Note to Damnation Books: Please lighten up your art so eejits like me can see it properly, please. Many thanks.

Wayfarer will be published as Rebel in the UK et al, which has a completely different cover.
