One Sentence Book Reviews

Mistress of the Art of Death: Useless romantic plot grafted onto otherwise enjoyably lurid historical mystery makes sequels possible, but prospect painful.

The Nature of Monsters: Ye olde English science attempts to prove the theory of maternal impression through ghastly experiments, but our plucky heroine escapes, of course; read Mary Reilly instead.

Beguilement: Why did I think that I would like Bujold more if she wrote romance?

The Black Company: The clunky writing makes this action-packed tale of mercenaries and magic a slog, and the antagonist comes off like a female Sauron.
