A group of parents looking to buy their less-deserving children into elite schools is about to learn a thing or two from a criminal mastermind in the third book in the Infamous Frankie Lorde series, perfect for fans of Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls and Heist Society.

When Frankie discovers that a classmate’s invention has been stolen the day before a school-wide competition, the once-renowned international thief figures she might as well flex her skills to steal it back. But just when Frankie’s about to call her mission a success, she learns there’s more to the story than she’d originally thought.

A group of wealthy Greenwich parents are using their influence — and wallets — to guarantee that their kids get into the most exclusive institutions on the East coast, no matter how undeserving their kids are, or how far they have to go to ensure success. 

Easy peasy for Frankie to crack.  Until she gets to know these classmates of hers…and their parents…and everyone’s real motivations and issues.  Frankie sets the bar higher, to take the scam down from the top.  The guy who’s been hired to get the kids into their desired schools: “Mr. Admissions.”

About The Book:

Title: HUMAN REMAINS

Author: Peter Milligan, Dearbhla Kelly, Sally Cantirino (Illustrations), AndWorld Design, Adrian F. Wassel (Editor)

Pub. Date: September 27, 2022

Publisher: Vault Comics

Formats: Paperback, eBook

Pages: 208

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Kindle, B&NiBooks, KoboTBD, Bookshop.org

Alien meets A Quiet Place in this science fiction tale of terror for fans of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box and Tim Lebbon’s The Silence about a post-apocalyptic world in which monsters hunt the things that make us human – where feeling is a dangerous thing.

Live. Laugh. Love. Scream.
DIE.

Dax and Bisa love each other. But in this new and terrifying world, love is dangerous. Feeling anything is dangerous. Love. Hate. Joy. Fear.  Any of these in strong doses will bring a swift death. Earth has a new and terrible invader—monsters that smell the scent of emotion, salivate over the prey, and hunt the very feelings that make us human. A shocking tale of pent-up emotions and forced composure in the face of unspeakable horror…from one of the most celebrated writers in comics, Peter Milligan (X-Force, EnigmaShade the Changing Man, Hellblazer) and breakout horror artist Sally Cantirino (I Walk With Monsters, The Final Girls).

Collects the entire eight-issue series.


Reviews:

“I read this at a gasp, horrified by the bloody events as much as the too-familiar feel of a society self-destructing–even before the monsters come. A palpitating whirlwind of a start.”  — Daniel Kraus (New York Times bestselling author of The Shape of Water, Trollhunters, The Teddies Saga, and Vault Comics’ The Autumnal)

“As brilliant and incisive as ever, Peter Milligan questions what makes us human,and what motivates us to make the terrible decisions we inevitably make.”– Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Eternals; The Wicked + The Divine; Once & Future)

“Human Remains might be the scariest Vault series to date.” – Gate Crashers

“a brutal, visceral, soul crushing world where the barest hint of emotion can lead to a violent and bloody death.” — Multiversity Comics

My Review

An interesting read! I thought the story was interesting and the artwork is cool. If you like horror I think you would like this.

About Peter Milligan:

Peter Milligan is a legendary British writer of comics, film, and television. One of Entertainment Weekly’s “it” writers of the early 2000s, Peter Milligan was at the forefront of the revolution in comics which were created for a more sophisticated, adult audience.

Shade the Changing Man for Vertigo offered a skewered look at American culture, while Enigma, Face, The Extremist, and Rogan Gosh pushed the boundaries of what comic books could do. Milligan was the longest-running writer of the cult horror comic Hellblazer, and his take on Human Target inspired the TV series. For Marvel, the hugely-popular X-Statix was a radical reworking of the X-Man paradigm, described by Kevin Smith (CLERKS etc) as “the most well-observed scholarly analysis of media-manipulation filtered through a pop-culture lens ever committed to the page”.

Milligan is the screenwriter of  Pilgrim AKA Inferno (2000) and An Angel For May (2002) and currently is the co-creator and writer of Human Remains for Vault Comics

About Sally Cantirino:

Sally Cantirino is a comic artist and illustrator currently based in New Jersey. She has been self-publishing comics and zines since she was a teenager.

She has also done artwork for World Champ Game Co and bands like La Dispute and Murder By Death.

How To Speak Animal by Aubre Andrus & Gabby Wild Blog Tour

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the HOW TO SPEAK ANIMAL by Aubre Andrus & Gabby Wild Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

About The Book:

Title: HOW TO SPEAK ANIMAL

Author: Aubre Andrus & Gabby Wild

Pub. Date: August 16, 2022

Publisher: National Geographic Kids

Formats: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook

Pages: 176

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, B&N, TBD, Bookshop.org

Learn about the secret language of wild animals in this exciting and informative guide from the experts who brought you How to Speak Cat and How to Speak Dog.

We know animals can’t speak and express themselves in the same way as humans … but even the smallest and quietest animals have incredible ways of communicating with each other. With wildlife veterinarian expert Dr. Gabby Wild as a guide, How to Speak Animal helps kids understand how animals communicate through sound, body language, and behavior. It’s full of expert insights and real-life stories of humans exploring ways to “talk” to animals, from teaching great apes sign language to speaking “dolphin.” Packed with super-engaging animal photography that helps illustrate key concepts, this fascinating bookprofiles more than 60 different creatures―from birds to mammals to reptiles and more―and their amazing ways of communicating with each other.

If you’ve ever wondered why gorillas beat their chests and make hooting noises, what it means when chameleons change color, or why some elephants twist their trunks together, this is the book for you!

My Review

This was a fun and interesting read. I learned facts about animals I didn’t know. This book is perfect for people of all ages who love animals!
