Difficult read, but realistically poetic. This first installment in the Special Forces Series is tough but beautiful..

Special Forces - Soldiers by Aleksandr Voinov
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For those who haven’t read this golden piece of work: The ebook version of this series is available for free download here: http://www.marquesate.org/special-for.... Aleksandr Voinov creates and co-wrote this amazing story but the books are no longer available on his website.

And now, the longest rambling ever...


A love story that doesn’t know about frontiers, sides or conventionalism. A love story beyond bullets, flags, loyalties and countries. A love story bigger than hate, need and desperation. A love story that fights against the world and against death, knowing that winning is almost an utopia but facing all kind of dangers anyway, because giving up is not an option anymore.

A deep, complex and crude book
complicated to read in my case, because I had to deal with some struggling at the beginning (conflictive and mixed feelings) that stopped me to truly loved the story. But once those obstacles were overtaken, I w…

Saying I was a happy nerdy-camper reading this volume is an understatement . The humor in this one (again) was the winner

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Wolves at the Gate by Drew Goddard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I guess this is my favorite volume so far. A great plot going on, fantastic humor and a good action (even if I prefer Old Buffy’s ways better than this new Avengers super production thingy).
The most remarkable thing, and the way this season seems to be oriented, is that Buffy even if more badass than ever, she is also more alone than she’s ever been. It’s a recurring theme in this series since power seems to go hand by hand with loneliness and death. Super sad but a great continuation of what happened in Season 7. The same line of dark but contrasted with the colorful of the comic strips.
This is the epitome of what Buffy is in essence: A normal girl destined to be a super-heroine and fight evil against her will. And now she is surrounded for tons of slayers and the remaining of her old gang but still alone. Paradoxically beautiful.




Just a few notes for fans (a bit spoiler-ish maybe?)

We all have our dreams. Some are small, some are big. Some are viable, others remain what they are, namely dreams. Sometimes they are the only retreat from real life, the only thing that sees us through it. And how boring life would be without them, right?

Angelo Giordano not only has a dream, he lives it. He lives it by doing something he loves, until a devastating diagnosis of a chronic disease not only ends his career as a ballet dancer, but also nearly ruins him financially. Angelo's only escape to hold up the illusion that he is still in control over his own life unfolds at Lovato's, a secret and voyeuristic sex club that fulfills any wet dream's fantasy. A club where he is Angel, a self-confident man who does not need to worry about his future.

Dylan Hart, on the verge of a new chapter in his life after ending a polyamorous relationship, is a worrier. He worries about everyone he cares for, but a…

Second volume on my nerd journey through Buffy´s Season 8 and Faith is in the house. Hell yes.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: No Future for You by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Hey I like me so kink but if you think I’m going downtown on this chick you chose the wrong chosen one”

Ohhh Faith, how I’ve missed you girl.



Here in Volumen II Faith steals the show completely. Our evil slayer in on a mission and it’s not just the pleasure of seeing her again, it’s the fact that she also makes you think about redemption, about being lonely, the necessity all of us have to be loved. But, mostly, what her parts show us, is how difficult and tricky is to have power and use it for the good. All that amount of girls being powerful, almost invencible, out of danger and all? Hell yes, women power! BUT we’re forgetting that not every woman is good, there’s a lot of mean girls out there who doesn’t deserve a gift like that... f*ck, I’m getting deep. I’m out.

Two other parts here, not my favorites but we get to see Twilight for the first time and even if I don’t know if I get what happens in t…

"A different set of eyes never sees the same picture."

Gael Peterson does not want to feel attracted to this guy. He does not want to want him. Much less like him.

Jake Riley, former member of the ENu (short for Police Enhanced Unit), a kind of rather testosterone-ridden SWAT team that is called in everytime a so-called Enhanced seems to be out of control, reminds him of everything he hates about being different. Not only because of his special abilities, but also because of the ugly scars on his face. Even if his ability of having an impenetrable skin should give him all the security he needs, it is his uniform that makes him feel safe. And now said Jake Riley is about to turn his world upside down by not just being the newest member of Gael's H.E.R.O. team, a special unit of the FBI consisting in equal shares of Enhanced and 'regular' humans, hell no, it is getting even w…

Buffy is back. Season 8 has been released on comic and has a very promising start. I´m in nerd-heaven

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Long Way Home by Joss Whedon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reading about Buffy after Buffy’s last episode is something that I would never expect years ago.
Reading about Buffy season 8, written or supervised by Whedon himself is kinda dream for my inner nerd. Because that nerd is pretty alive (and proud). As alive as Buffy Anne Summers, profesional slayer, is.

Everything ended like this:



And now it starts with a complete blast, outstanding humor and a fabulous setting. Too fabulous for a tv show budget I guess, and that’s one of the reasons we have the comics instead.

Sunnydale doesn’t exist anymore and our gang (what remains) is facing a new and unknown menace: Twilight. And of course the same old evil (some things never change)
Also, another super pro to read it, is that in this first volumen they clarify some shit said about Buffy in Angel Season 5, so happy nerdy camper here.

*sighs* I can’t get enough

Highly recommend for Buffy fans

A sexy freebie by Anyta Sunday: Signs of Love #3.5 for a good cause.

Gemini Rules Capricorn by Anyta Sunday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sexy little thing. Literally: it is short (20 pages) and very, very steamy.

Revisiting Wesley and Lloyd has been a huge pleasure and reading about how dirty the can be an enormous plus. Because they are naughty boys here and you’ll be glad to get to know this side of the cute-sweet couple.

Even with the short length Anyta achieves in giving us the big picture: how are they, how are the secondary characters and how and what they feel. Perfect vision in a few hot pages and believe me, there’s a lot of hotness here.

Highly recommend!

If you download it from Amazon this month you’ll contributing to the Human Rights Campaign and that’s always a nice thing to do but anyway, it will be a freebie next moth so there are no excuses available to not read it. If you are a fan you’ll love it.
