Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Artful - Martin Lake

This one is pretty good, as Artful Dodger sequels go. I'd say it's probably the best of the ones that follow him to Australia, based on the samples and other books I've read. It gets a little slow in the middle, but I just read past a part where he comes across some old friends and it's getting my interest again. Hedging between 3-4 stars on this one. I'll decide when it's finished.
