Review by LallaGatta – In Pale Battalions by Robert Goddard

Cover image

Not a bad read, but…

I have some issues with In Pale Battalions by Robert Goddard that have diminished my enjoyment of the book.

The language and writing style is one of the things I've least appreciated. They are convoluted, old-fashioned, and pompous. I think the story would've been more enjoyable if delivered in a breezy, straightforward style, instead of narrating in such a roundabout way.

The second thing I've found frustrating is the length of the novel, which is too long. If the author condenses the waiting for relevant information, instead of dragging it for pages on end, the book would be at least one-third shorter. As a reader, I've had the sense of being on the brink of an action that either never comes or is unreasonably delayed yet again.

It's just too bad because the plot is intriguing.

Review by LallaGatta – A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight

Cover image

A real page-turner, I couldn't put it down!

I love this book. I've read it in one day. That's how I hooked I've been.

No, actually, I've devoured it and have had to finish it right after I started it.

The characters, the plot, the style—it all works out perfectly like a well-oiled mechanism. Nothing fails, and your enjoyment is guaranteed to be absolute!

I definitely recommend A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight to all legal thrillers fans and anyone looking for a fast-paced, absorbing, and well-crafted storyline!

Finding a soul mate was the easy part. To seduce him proved to be Martin’s hardest challenge for nothing in Pirate Drake’s black intriguing eyes led on to the fate awaiting him. But can the month, between Thanksgiving and Christmas be enough to convince him of the contrary and overcome his dilemnas about gender, feelings connections and sex? Or can Pirate Drake find a way around the burning desire, the erotic heat, the uncontrollable passion wrecking his senses at Martin's mere sight?


Following his gaze, Martin’s lips curved in a snarl. “I hope no one’s coming after us.”

Stepping into the elevator, Drake shrugged. “If they do, they might catch something not very…businesslike.”

“Nothing like some hot sex to perk up their drab routines.” The devil grinned, getting inside as well.

Drake hardly waited for the elevator doors to close before trapping Martin against the metallic wall, his palm …
