A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

#123. Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice by Erin Hunter
Second in the Warriors series

Pages: 317
Finished: Dec. 2, 2007
Reason for Reading: next in the series. The Series Challenge
First Published: 2003
Genre: animal fantasy
Rating: 4/5

First Sentence:

Orange flames lapped at the cold air, throwing sparks up into the night sky.

Comments: Gone is the awkwardness I found in the first book of this series. This second book was a fast-paced enjoyable read. The story starts the day after the previous events and we are greeted with many familiar characters. The rivalries between the Clans is increasing and war seems immanent. I read this pretty much straight through and really enjoyed it. I will definitely be continuing on with this series.
