Books I've Read This Week

The Temporal Void by Peter F Hamilton is the second novel of the Void Trilogy. As such it continues on the plot threads from the first novel. We follow Inigo, the first dreamer, and Araminta, the second dreamer outside the void while being treated to Inigo's dreams of what happens inside the Void where we get more of Edeard's back story. I really love reading more about Edeard. Also we are treated to a better explanation of what the void is which I will not spoil for you.
The Stuff of Legend: Omnibus One story by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith. The illustrator is Charles Paul Wilson III. Here is the elevator pitch, the Bogeyman steals a young child from his bedroom and his beloved toys need to venture out into the Dark to rescue him. Yes, I know it probably reminds you of Toy Story but there is definitely a heightened sense of danger in this book. One of the interesting things about this book is that it takes place during World War II so the art style is very reminiscent of the time period with it's sepia colouring.
