Reading project, week ending 6 Oct 2019

What have I read this week?

The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith

This is a fantasy novel about a woman named Elena who is a vine witch: a witch who makes wine. She has just escaped from a curse which turned her into a toad and is seeking revenge. I enjoyed this: I liked the world-building, the plot was interesting and I managed to guess one of the villains before they were revealed. I would definitely read more by this author.

The Last Dance (The Near-Earth Mysteries) by Martin L Shoemaker

This is a science fiction novel about a spaceship captain, Nicolau Aames, accused of mutiny, and the inspector, Park Yerim, tasked with investigating his actions. I found this a little too macho for my taste, but the story was pretty interesting.
