I’ve mentioned before how much I love Dana Stabenow’s Kate Shugak series. When she announced that the Liam Campbell series was available on Kindle, I realized I had not yet dived into that series (although it was on my To Read list) so I downloaded the first, Fire and Ice – which was actually FREE!
Liam Campbell is a straight-arrow Alaskan State Trooper, newly assigned to a post in the town of Newenham after being demoted (which I won’t get into for spoiler reasons). It only took me a few pages to realize that I was going to love this series as much as Kate’s. And by the end of the book, I was head over heals for Liam, Wyanet Chouinard, and all the rest of the characters Dana brings to life so well. I went ahead and downloaded all the other books in the series that were available – So Sure Of Death, Nothing Gold Can Stay, and Better To Rest. So much for my eBook allowance for May. If there is one down-side to the Kindle, it is that it is so damn easy to buy books on it
So instead of writing up my little brief reviews of each book, I have been indulging in a genuine FEAST of reading. I couldn’t get enough of them and man, I am sorry I finished up so quickly. If I didn’t hate the cold with a passion, I would totally be planning an Alaskan vacation. I don’t know if it is the stories, the characters, the writing, or how Dana Stabenow brings so much of Alaska alive, but I find both series irresistible.
But now, unfortunately, I am completely up to date on both Liam and Kate. Now the wait for the next volume to be published.
