Interview with Jesse Teller 29, May

An awesome interview with Jesse Teller, author of The Manhunters series.

Hack/Slash Omnibus volume 1 (Hack/Slash #1) 25, May

4/5

I should make a confession before I begin this review that I love slasher films. I have a somewhat twisted perspective on them, though, which is the fact they're actually quite intelligent when done right as well as proto-feminist. They are, after all, among the first movies where the heroine can and does kick the ass of the monster. Jaime Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, and Linda Hamilton all got their start taking down a monstrous killer that had backed them into a corner. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was based on Joss Whedon's desire to have the usual victim of a monstrous stalker rebel and kill the creature attacking her.

Melokai (In the Heart of the Mountain #1) 24, May

4/5

MELOKAI is a novel which I was surprised by in more than one way. I was intially attracted to the book by the cover and was even more interested once I read the synopsis. It claimed to be inspired by Game of Thrones and Kushiel's Dart, both series which I was familiar with. They had very different feels, though, and I was curious where the story would take me.
