Saturn's Children by Charles Stross. So far it hasn't lived up to the other works of his that I have read, but I must give him credit, the gynoid/spaceship lesbian sex scene was very tastefully done.

The Spooks Series - Joseph Delaney.

Not too bad, interesting take on his little world. Books are a tad short for my liking, I just feel he could do more with the story than he is. His focus on 3 particular parts on paranormal activity seems limiting at first but he make use of shades of grey instead of the usual good and evil which allows him to make interesting enough distinctions. From time to time he diverts in to things outside that sphere but they are usually the antagonist of a single novel and then poof nadda.

Presently up to : Spooks - Battle, still two more to go sitting on the shelf


We'll see how he goes in the next few, I hate judging an author in full half way through a series.
