The Book Blag

Book reviews over anything and everything

In My Mailbox October 26, 2010

MailboxIn My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren. I have been very lucky the last couple of weeks, and I won two books from blog giveaways! Yesterday, I received my copy of The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff that I won from Melissa’s Books and Things Halloween Giveaway. You can see Melissa’s review of The Replacement at her blog. Today, I received Beat by Stephen Jay Schwartz that I won through a giveaway at Cheryl’s Book Nook. You can read Cheryl’s review of Beat here. I want to thank them for my upcoming reads, just in time for Halloween! Reviews to follow after I’ve read the books.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff:
Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world.
Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate’s baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs. (Description from Goodreads)
Beat by Stephen Jay Schwartz:
LAPD Robbery-Homicide Detective Hayden Glass has always had trouble controlling his urges. No longer trolling the streets looking for working girls, he has a new obsession–the Internet. Infatuated with a woman he finds on a website, Hayden Glass’s sex addiction drags him to San Francisco and into a web of corruption and crime.
Glass’s search for this woman leads him to a massive sex slave trade, run by the Russian mafia and protected by a group of powerful and corrupt San Francisco cops. Glass gets co-opted by the FBI to aid in their investigation…but his presence is doing much more harm than good. (Description from Goodreads)
