As mentioned in my post here as part of the SPFBO competition I’ll be randomly choosing six books per month for the next five months, I will then aim to check out at least the first 30% of each book during that month.  I’ll post information about the first three books chosen at the start of the month and then about the remaining three during the mid way point with a conclusion around the end of the month about which books will be going forward or which will be eliminated.  The conclusion for my first, second and third month’s reading can be found herehere and here Ultimately, the aim is to choose one book from the thirty I’ve been assigned – that chosen one will then be my finalist.

Books 4-6 in my fourth batch of books are as follows:

VictorVictor Boone Will Save Us by David Joel Stevenson

Victor Boone is an arrogant, six-foot tall hunk of man candy who uses incredible powers to fly around in spandex and save his city’s citizens from evil doers. Especially the busty ones.

But he’s not a superhero.

The truth is, an invisible, insecure and overweight Robby Willis is the one with the powers. But he’s so terrified of anyone knowing that he even exists as a person that he’s not comfortable with a cliche disguise.

The two men form a partnership: Robby does the saving and Victor takes the credit.

The problem is, Victor’s been murdered.

Can Robby overcome his social anxiety with the help of the prettiest smelling girl he’s ever known? Or will he let the evil villain The Vacant destroy the city, leaving him to finally be alone?


UnderUnder Ordshaw by Phil Williams

An abducted youth. A book of horrors. A city with a nightmarish secret.

Pax Kuranes has two simple goals: make rent and win a poker tournament. When a young man steals her bankroll, and she finds out she’s the least dangerous person after him, her ambitions quickly shift to keeping herself alive. To do that, she’s going to have to figure out exactly what he was into – and face what’s lurking under Ordshaw.

Phil Williams’ contemporary fantasy is a fast-moving thriller filled with rich detail, sharp dialogue and things that will keep you up at night. Take your first step into Ordshaw and learn why it’s such a hard city to leave…


SangrookThe Sangrook Saga by Steve Thomas 

They have been called warlords, necromancers, demon-worshipers, torturers, and monsters. The Sangrooks ruled half the world before they were defeated, but they were not eradicated. The menace of the Sangrook clan lives on, and the morbid history of this cursed family unfolds across seven doomed lives.

    Another promising batch. Under Ordshaw looks most intriguing from the cover, but they all sound pretty good!
