Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale - Zack Whedon, Steve Morris, Chris Samnee, Dave Stewart, Joss Whedon

Finally fans of Joss Whedon’s Firefly are given some of the back history to character Shepherd Book.  We learn what made the man who was so well train in arsenals and be a man of the cloth.


The artwork is probably the best thing about this volume of Serenity.


The background story was mediocre.  I feel that Shepherd’s story could have been stretched out to more graphic novels and instead it loss something. It has the feeling of being chopped and no real connection or heart.


Since I was a fan of Firefly I know the characters and was of course interested in the back story that was not told in the show or movie. Anyone not a fan of Firefly, will probably have no interest in this third volume.


Even though I had some interest in Shepherd Book’s story this was less interesting than imagined. I had hoped for something more exciting.
