Bedtime For Batman

71j6EjgQdyL

Hey, geek parents, here is a book for you! Bedtime For Batman is a sweet, illustrated story written by award-winning author, Michael Dahl and illustrated by Ethen Beavers.

The story features a boy who has his own mini-adventure as he gets ready for bedtime. He puts on his cape, brushes his teeth and snuggles under the blanket. On the next page, we see Bruce Wayne also preparing for his night… a night of crime fighting, of course.

I love that this book uses the Batman: The Animated Series art style as well. It is a delightful story to read your the little Batmans in your life!

Now when will we get Bedtime for Batgirl?

Vampires, Werewolves, and Erotica Oh My!

If you are a fan of vampires, witches, werewolves, or even Angels then you are most likely a fan of Anne Rice. However, very few of the adventurous readers I know have gotten around to “The Sleeping Beauty” series that was originally published under the pseudonym A.N. Roquelaure back in the 1980’s before she was a seasoned writer. I came across Rice’s stories while in high school and slowly made my way through her catalog of books during the late 1990’s. To my surprise no one I knew had heard of these books. I soon realized this was not a story meant for a younger audience, but like the main character aptly named Beauty, a literary sexual awakening was sitting in my lap! I didn’t really know what the meaning of phallus was, but I was soon introduced to a plethora of sexual terminology that has had me intrigued for years to come. Fans of erotica know “50 Shades of Grey” is nothing compared to this erotica series. Why read about a billionaire sociopath when you can read about a whole kingdom dedicated to sexual foreplay and eroticism? A WHOLE KINGDOM PEEPS! There is even a village outside the kingdom that tributes, such as Beauty, are sent to when people are punished for not being subservient. It sounds crazy! Crazy awesome.

Blog Tour: The Young Elites — Meet Dante, AKA Spider

Dante Poster

Some hate us, think us outlaws to hang at the gallows.

Some fear us, think us demons to burn at the stake.

Some worship us, think us children of the gods.

But all know us.

MEET DANTE (AKA SPIDER)

Once a blacksmith’s apprentice, Dante is wary of Adelina’s presence on the team. Both hulking and menacing, Spider would like nothing more than to rid himself of the new recruit. Like the others, he is marked as a Young Elite by the dark irregular markings on his neck that go all the way down to his chest. He’s known as the Spider for his abilities to see in darkness.

BOOK REVIEW: Magic Breaks

 photo magicbreaks.jpg

Ilona Andrews 7th novel in the Kate Daniel’s series, Magic Breaks, is fast paced, funny, action packed and heart wrenching. It’s basically book crack.

The trouble I have writing this review is that if you know about the series, you’ve probably read them all and don’t need to be persuaded to read the next installment. These characters are your friends and you can’t wait to visit them again. If you haven’t read the series, I can’t talk about ANYTHING that happens in this book because everything has been building to this moment.

If you haven’t started the series, I’m sad for you. I’m sad that you won’t giggle when I mention attack poodles, or want to smack something at the mention of Saiman. The long and the short of it is, if you like paranormal, shape shifters, vampires, fast paced action, mysteries, snarky humor, then go get started! Stop reading this, and go buy the first book. When you finish them all in the next four days, then we can talk.

If you are determined to be spoiled and miss out on all the fun of a series building up it’s characters and revealing mysteries as it goes, read on.

BOOK REVIEW: The Rise of O-Girl

The Rise of O-Girl
Anita B. Rutten

Trigger warnings: This review contains explicit content (sex!) and discussion about rape. Continue at your own risk.

The Rise of O-Girl is a short story about a super heroine whose secret power is lightning orgasms that fry her partner to a crisp. She’s on a vendetta to find her sister’s murderer and will stop at nothing to get her revenge. Her origin story as a super hero is also covered.

At 22 pages, this is a pretty quick read for anyone, and if you’re just in it for titillation, you won’t have to wait long. There are lots of sex scenes starting from page 1. I’d say the price point of $2.99 is a bit high for 22 pages, but I’m a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to buying books.

Tim Hanley’s ‘Wonder Woman Unbound’

wonder woman unboundWonder Woman is as iconic as Batman and Superman, often hailed as the third to complete the DC trinity. She represents women in the super hero world and today, some of us here at Defective Geeks talk consider her lack of presence in popular media (i.e. blockbuster summer movies) a very important topic of discussion. On our podcast, we’ve questioned why every time a network attempts to create a new Wonder Woman television show, it is canceled before it ever airs. We’ve questioned why it’s so hard for writers to bring her back to life in her own standalone series or movie. As we eagerly await what will happen to the character in the next Superman/Batman movie by Zack Snyder, I was sent this book called Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by author, Tim Hanley.
