Deep Black (Tom Locke, #2)Deep Black by Sean McFate
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book for review.

I liked it much better than I was expecting to like a book about multiple mercenary groups performing seemingly opposing actions in the Middle East amid the various local political groups and religious jihadists. It helped that Tom Locke, the leader of the underdog group of mercenaries, was a likeable character. And there were more than enough bad guys to suit anyone's taste.

In the Footsteps of DraculaIn the Footsteps of Dracula by Stephen Jones

Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for a review.

I could not finish this book. Given my visual acuity, the choice of typeface for the stories made the text all but unreadable for me. It was a struggle to decipher the words. After very slowly making my way through the first seven stories, I decided the rather dull and repetitive nature of what I had read did not warrant me trying to continue reading.
