I enjoyed the Lives and thought the premise, of long-lived non-corporeal beings which could survive long-term on Earth only by inhabiting human host bodies, intriguing and presented in a way which is as believable as it can get. I appreciated the way Wesley worked in limitations of these beings: they need to retain their new host-bodies, they can last only so long outside, if the host’s death is under certain circumstances, the parasite/superbeing passes. His action and pace was generally good, though at time I felt it flagged a little, or there were periods which I felt were not as well fleshed out as they could be. I had trouble identifying with some of the characters at times – most likely there is more backstory to this which could have deepened the conflict and brought the reader into the story with more conviction. Overall, a very good airplane book – a bit like a supernatural James Bond adventure at times, light enough yet intriguing enough you can do it in distracting circumstances.

Whisky Blogs I Read
I have learned (and still learn) much from these tireless bloggers. They all have their characteristic take on the subject, and are not marketers. There are many others on the net, these just happen to be in my faves list.
My grandma would have called Jason a "character." Very honest reviews, usually with some off-the-wall take on things, which sometimes have to do with whisky.
For an enthusiastic but light-hearted take on the world of whisky -- with a huge scope (these 'Tassies' get around) -- check out the indefatigable Wafflers, Nick and Ted
Ralfy is a force of nature. He's gotten quite windy of late, but you cannot contest his encyclopedic knowledge. Ralfy
Sam's enthusiasm and energy is refreshing and fun. He has his own reviews and a selection of other blogs, so a good way to do a whisky blog buffet. W&W
