Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Today was a grossly hot day. By gross I mean it got to 102 and it was quite sticky outside. But this is the last hot day for a while, at least I hope, as a cool front rolls in tonight and the highs look to be relatively seasonable for the next 10 days. Maybe I’ll even get some yard work and Halloween decorating done next week if things continue to be nice! We’ll have to see.
I had a nice book haul come in last week. An author I have been reading for a little while had his first epic fantasy released by a traditional publisher. I normally wait for mass-market paperbacks, but felt he deserved me getting the hardcover book. I’ll still get the paperback in a few months when it releases. I also got the next three paperbacks in the Mercy Thompson series since I haven’t read them yet.
I’ve also been binge-watching shows and just finished what is currently out on Hulu of Fear the Walking Dead. There is some good storytelling there. When I was in Australia I watched a few shows, including Titans. I enjoyed the downtime and the shows.
What are you looking forward to with the change in season?
Enjoy and happy reading!

The Flux Engine
John Porter didn’t expect his experiment to go horribly awry and send every Tommy in town on a rampage.
The steam-powered metal men tore down half of Sprocketville before they were stopped. After that debacle, John expected a visit from the sheriff … not a robber who stole his heirloom crystal—a mysterious gift from his long-lost mother—and then shot him in the chest for good measure.
Left for dead, John is revived, and then deputized, by legendary lawman Wild Bill Hickok, who represents shadowy powers that are also after John’s crystal. Throwing in with Hickok and the daughter of the world’s greatest thief, John embarks on a perilous journey to recover his crystal, discover his legacy, and ultimately save the world from a villain who intends to use the crystal to create the most deadly weapon ever known.
Devils and Dragons
There’s power in dragon blood…
It’s also delicious!
No one really knows what to do when a dragon shows up in town.
I called the exterminator. He hung up on me.
I guess it’s up to me to take these monsters on…
I have to use their magic against them. It’s the only way I can stop them.
Corbin has consumed dragon blood—now he can turn into one!
I’m training with the Wyrmriders to take him down…
But there’s something a lot darker and—if you can believe it—scarier than dragons that are involved in Corbin’s insidious scheme.
Can I stop him? Or will Corbin unleash hell on earth?
The Iron Door
Antiquities dealer and television personality Brian Sadler joins his old friend Harry Harrison, whose term as U.S. president is ending, in a trip to the mountains of southwestern Oklahoma in search of a fabled lost cavern.
The Cave of the Iron Door is a legendary depository for vast treasure—outlaw loot or Spanish gold, perhaps—that several people claim to have seen over the past hundred and fifty years. On certain days when the sun’s rays hit a remote canyon wall for a few seconds at sunset, the glimmering reflection of an iron door can be seen high in the cliffs.
Brian and Harry venture into the rugged Wichita Mountains to learn the truth behind the legend, but discovering what lies within the cramped, winding passages is much different and far more dangerous than either could have dreamed possible.
Brian’s wife Nicole Farber is thrust into a role she never imagined and faces an extortionist who threatens to reveal a dark secret from her past. What he wants is the same thing her husband seeks, and he will go to any length to stop Brian and take everything for himself.
When an earthquake closes the only way out for Brian and Harry, a strange man who calls himself the Protector offers to help, but is he on their side or that of their adversary? Facing death in a cave, they make a decision that could cost them everything…or allow them to prove the legend real.
