I just picked up a book off my pile of free books and read this awesome book:
The Water Rat of Wanchai by Ian Hamilton, is published by a small Canadian press, but is it ever great. I always have the urge to judge some of that smaller local stuff as dull, but I was not bored for a second. Kick ass heroine? Check. Crime and deception? Check. Love it! I enjoyed that some of it took part in Toronto, I love having visited places the character goes to, it makes you feel more part of their reality. And the pace was fast. You sometimes need that to keep my attention.
I can’t believe I left it in the book pile for 2 entire months! If I had read it earlier I would have been among the elite first people to read it. Ugh, my quest for world dominance has failed again. But we all know that is not my entire quest for world dominance, only certain Interrobang ladies know the full extent of those plans, and I probably left out some details. You know, for their own safety.
