Review: Frags (Thomas Carpenter)


Frags Frags picks up with Gabby living with the Frags and trying to find out what happens to the contestants that don't beat LifeGame. In particular, she’s trying to find her friend Zaela, who has disappeared without a trace when she did not receive a high score in LifeGame. Now Gabby has become the (reluctant) leader of the Frags, and is leading the effort to find the missing contestants. The journey is long and difficult, and often brings unexpected surprises along the way. With every horrific discovery, Gabby seems to get a step further from uncovering the truth behind the disappearances.

 The only truth she does find leaves her with a broken heart.


Frist, I thought the first book-- Gamers-- was awesome. I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but this one combines the best of science fiction with a dystopian setting. Instant awesomeness.

There are some super shady characters, especially the head Coder. He is constantly following Gabby and the Frags, trying to capture them for some evil, ill purposed reason. Gabby is the main character and leader of the Frags (even when she doesn’t want to be). She’s strong and caring, even when she is compulsive and irrational. She is flawed, and I love that. She doesn’t always make the best decisions, and she comes to terms with the consequences of her actions in a very believable way.  

Frags has been action packed since the first chapter, with no lulls. Every page has offered a new segment in the plot. It’s a page turner! Normally, I am a pro at figuring out plots, but this one had me stumped. I can honestly say I don't know where the book was heading. I was guessing all the way until the end, which really caught me by surprise. Needless to say, there was a cliffhanger ending that will leave you guessing.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.

Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
