Yo, where my Bioweps at? 26 July 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Yeah, well, there's just not much here. This is more a description of present-day Detroit; cops vs. gang-bangers with the companions getting some trigger time. There is one brief interaction with the ubiquitous sickies but otherwise this work was written for some other purpose; perhaps a newspaper article or maybe someone's high school summer paper. Wait, I know! It was to introduce the word 'prolly' (used in place of 'probably') to everyone in the unsuspecting world. This would exclude an area near Pittsburgh, PA on the south-west side of the Dunbar Mountains where 'prolly', 'h'aint' and 'bought'n' originated. Prolly.

This is not really a DL book at all. There are no bioweps, whitecoats, sec droids, etc. The companions are vomited out of a redoubt in under-explained circumstances never to return. There are no surprises as the companions run around doing coldheart/mercenary work, randomly killing people for no real reason. The premise is that they are somehow 'stuck' there and can't get away...previous 'we're stuck doin' dirty work for awhile' books at least had one of the friends captured or critically injured and of course would not be left behind. This book has them all healthy, armed, together and...stuck there. Why? IDK.

A definite plus: Doc has neither significant action nor spoken lines. The combat action is lazily described, except where folks routinely get stabbed/hacked in the neck. Someone doesn't like necks, that's for sure. Some of the firearms technical writing is good, with the companions losing their placebo 'manhood' (that is what their standard weps, represent, right?) (just kidding) (prolly) early on and picking up exotic weaponry like M4's, 38's, 44's...oh. Dang.

Deathlands Angels 18 July 2014
By Mace & Lacey Gannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This particular edition of Deathlands: Desolation Angels, was written by long-timer Victor Milan.

Once again Milan takes the helm of another adventure that is not his best, but neither his worst. Hey, we suppose that if you are the seemingly prime writer for any particular series, and pump out a lot of work in a short amount of time, they are not all going to be shining gems.

We felt that Desolation was a mixed bag of tricks. Mostly, just a breezy, fast-paced action/adventure story that didn't particularly blow us away story-wise, but neither really pissed us off or bored the hell out of us. We just felt that in this day and age, these veteran writers can surely come up with bigger and better storylines than battling bikers in 2 books, back-to-back.

If the last book and this one could have been combined, I think the mix of overall 'storyline' would have come off much stronger and a helluva lot better than both separately. But this latter one is the better one, in our humble opinion.

Why, you ask? Because this writer knows the Companions extremely well, and he shows it in snippets throughout this story. And we are not just talking about the action aspects of the companions. The being battle savvy. No, we are talking about their pasts, and their relationships toward one another. J. B. and Mildred being a loving couple is practically ignored most of the time. But here it is showcased, albeit much too aloof and coldly. By now, they should be on another level entirely.

But those types of observations can drive one mad. That's like pointing out for the umpteenth time that the companions need new weps, new clothing, a much needed chron jump for a bloody storyline, another as yet unexplored part of the world none of the writers have already done already, battling just for food and water and a few bullets, instead of having plenty in all books. The list just goes on and on....

There is actually too much action in this story, and not enough....well, story. We know, we know, this is essentially an action/adventure romp through Deathlands. Yeah, so why does that mean after well over a 100 books now, the characters cannot further their development? After a while, the action gets old when there is no chance of losing one of the companions. (Or even get badly wounded. Doc finally gets shot in the head after a gazillion bullets are shot the companion's way, but it is never mentioned again. A little less action and more character development would go a long, long way here in this series.

THEN the after effects of any given action scene would mean more to the reader. Instead of hand delivering loads of endless action. It gets numbing after a while, Mr. Dear Writer. It lessens the dramatic flair and much-needed danger for the companions. This book would have worked much better back in the day. But now, we diehard DL readers would like a much more heady 'storyline' that has some action in it. We are action fanatics. But without any drama, it just becomes another action scene.

For instance: There are a couple of scenes where Krysty Wroth, (Wroth, not Worth), gets manhandled by a couple of sec men grabbing her breasts, and Ryan does not react at all. No, no, no! Ryan Cawdor should NEVER get used to this - no matter what. If you disengage Ryan from caring, then you are disengaging the reader from caring, and just making us diehard fans shake our heads in frustration.

On the other hand, the strength of this particular writer, along with this particular book: Is that it showcases and has the companions willing to chill anything and anyone who gets in their way of utter survival. Unlike the tree-hugging, save anyone you don't know Outlanders characters. What happened to THAT series?! Kane and Brigid STILL can't get laid.

I like that writers such as these stay true to the companions willing to chill men, women, and muties of all stripe, in order to be #1 sole survivor. But, like most of the recent Outlanders books, the companions needlessly put themselves in harms way for dumb reasons. By this time, these companions - not just the fearless leader, Ryan - are battle savvy enough NOT to do this.

This book showcased a lot of running, fighting, killing, etc... That burns an enormous amount of calories. But they never ate ANYTHING! Hell, they barely drank any water. And they destroyed a lot of water in this book. (Please Mr. Writer, can you please at least showcase them to take their fill first, and feel bad about destroying THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD?!

That is all we ask. (Oh, and no more stickies for a while. Clearly the most wayyyyy overused mutie in the series.)

Again, we liked the book, and respect the heck out of Mr. Milan for his hard work. But we say this with peace and love - think of showcasing newer muties, deeper characterization over overload of action, and balance the traveling the DL with either new locales, or even better yet, some chron jumping.
