Transport by Peter Welmerink

Series: Transport #1
Genre: Horror
Publisher: Seventh Star Press
Source: I received an e-copy for review
The HURON, a 72-ton heavy transport vehicle and an army of four; tracked, racked and ready to roll, to serve and protect the walled metropolis of Grand Rapids-both her living and her undead. Captain Jacob Billet and his crew patrol the byways, ready for trouble. William Lettner, the North Shore Coalition High Commissioner, has enemies from the mainland to the lakeshore and needs to be covertly transported home after his helicopter is shot down en route to Grand Rapids. He has no love for a city that give unliving civilians the right to survive. Lettner's venomous outbursts assaults Billet and his crew along every mile travelled as they are assigned to safely bring him through the treacherous landscape outside the city back to his hometown. The HURON and her crew will have to face domesticated zombies and the feral undead; marauders holding strategic chokepoints hostage; barricaded villages fighting for survival, and a group of geneticists who've lost control of one of their monstrous experiments if they want to complete their mission. The crew will need to stay strong and trust one another in order to finish the mission and bring their "precious" cargo home, even knowing, all the while, the terrible deeds Lettner has done. Travelling through West Michigan was never so dangerous
I am a sucker or a good zombie novel and unfortunately they are not easy to find. Transport however is one  I enjoyed very much. I loved the entire concept of this story and loved the execution even more. 

The Kingdom of Vosh by Jason C. Conly

Genre: Steampunk
Publisher: Jc Publishing
Source: I received an e-copy for review
Secrets have been formed in the dark corners of the kingdom. Change is in the air and whispers of new ideas and technologies have swept the land. Unfortunately, the King is old and simple and his daughter is concerned only with worldly possessions. A man by the name of Buul, a man long forgotten, has returned to pay a visit to the King on the King’s birthday. He has not come empty handed and will be the King’s undoing.

The King, in moments of panic and war, can trust no one with the protection of his daughter. He quickly decides to entrust her life with a creature most vile and uncommon and chains her to a Vork. He does not leave her empty handed though. His last gift to the Princess is an amulet with powers even he does not comprehend. The land’s only chance, the only one loyal to the King’s memory, is the daughter that cares nothing of the Kingdom of Vosh.

I am very conflicted about The Kingdom of Vosh. I did not love this story neither did I hate it.

I enjoyed the world Jason C. Conly has build. I would actualy like to see more of this world. I also enjoyed the story very much. The story comes with a spycholog, socilogic and political undertone, which which nice coincide with the story. He used a lot of different kind of characters and creatures which I always enjoy.

An udate...

Ok I know I have been absent lately, but I just have not been feeling like myself for the past few months. Unfortunately I had a little relapse with my depression. It has just been a tough year untill now (it's probably the 13) and I will be so happy ones this year is over.

At the moment I just take a day at a time. I am feeling much better and somewhat like myself again and this is getting better by the day. The problem is just that I am so tired that I mostly sleep when I am not at work.

However I have started reading again and I writing reviews so new posts will show up here again. And ofcourse I still have some giveaways that need winners and I will get to them soon.

I hope everything will be back to normal soon, but as I said I'll just take it day by day.

At the moment I am reading The Sentinal Wars series by Shannon K. Butcher and I am enjoying them a lot. I am currently half way through Running Scared. Now I just need to order the rest of the books in this series because I am affraid I am hooked. And it has been a long time since I felt that way about a series....

Slingshot by Matthew Dunn & giveaway

Genre: Thriller/Espionage
Series: Spycather #3
Publisher: William Morrow
Buy the book: Book Depository

Master spy Will Cochrane must catch a missing Russian defector as well as one of Europe’s deadliest assassins in this action-packed follow-up to Sentinel, written by real life former field officer Matthew Dunn.

Will Cochrane monitors the nighttime streets of Gdansk, Poland—waiting for the appearance of a Russian defector, a man bearing a top secret document, who Will believes is about to step out of the cold and into the hands of Polish authorities. But suddenly everything goes sideways. The target shows up, but so does a team from Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) hell-bent on keeping the man from walking. Then, in a hail of crossfire, a van speeds into the melee and snatches the defector out from under them all. Everyone wants the man and the codes he carries—but now he’s gone and it’s up to Will and his CIA/MI6 team to find him before the Russians.

Will tracks both the missing Russian and his kidnappers, believing the defector has his own warped agenda. But soon it’s apparent that the real perpetrator could be someone much more powerful: a former East German Stasi officer who instigated a super-secret pact between Russian and US generals almost twenty years ago. An agreement, which if broken for any reason, was designed to unleash the world’s deadliest assassin.

Then Will learns that the Russians have tasked their own ‘spycatcher’—an agent just as ruthless and relentless as Will—to retrieve the document. Now Will knows that he faces two very clever and deadly adversaries, who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims.

I always van enjoy a good spy novel. For one reason it is ok to read them out of order in series. This is the third book in the series but it is not a problem in this case, but after reading Slingshot I will check out the other books in this series because I really liked this one.
