Thinking the worse, he gets bailed out by of all people Sultan, who left him a book and a nice message.
Later Paris talks with Kinny over recent events, leaving the story as a cliffhanger.

The Review
Overall it’s a good story, but a bit darker than I hope. Here we see Paris hoping for both money and fame and getting neither. It seems every chance he takes to makes things better. There is always someone ready to figuratively stab him on the back. As this happens time and time again.

I give this story a 5 out of 10. Not that it’s a bad story, I was just left hoping for more maybe something that would make me smile. But I never got it, even though there might be a chance of a conclusion to this tale. I can tell you I have no plans on buying it or maybe this is the reason I was able to get these 3 books for 99 cents each.

I, The Tribunal by PC Hatter Book Review

I know this sounds strange but I have never read any books by Stacy Bender the book’s author before. I promoted their work like I would any furry author. But now I have a new appreciation for their work after reading I, The Tribunal.

It’s the first of the Kaiser Wrench stories, who is a private detective who lives by his own rules. Set in a time long before technology has all but taken over solving crime. This book delivers on a great story which begins with the murder of Kaiser Wrench good friend. We get to meet great characters, each with their own interesting backgrounds, hell the whole world the author sets for us is great. Dirty, crooked, and best of all you are unsure who actually wants this murder as well as others actually solved.

I will admit I am a Mystery Snob, I hate short cut endings, plan ridiculous set ups and hell knowing who dunnit right from the very start. But we don’t get that as suspicions go from one character to another all for legit reasons. But when the murderer is revealed, it took me by surprise. If I told you the number of mysteries I have heard, seen or read you simply would not believe it.

I, The Tribunal is a great book and can be found on Amazon

The author once again presents us with a rather unique world. This one focuses on beauty,
where plastic surgeons are more plentiful that telemarketers. It is also a world where you

Here we get the story of Zada and Quigley who simply want to be together. But Prince Chet demands a mistress, and there are forces in this world beyond their understanding. But that is where this book shines. We see their struggles, but will they succeed? Only time will tell. Well worth checking out, like the author’s other works.

Review of Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes by Van Hill Millvele

Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes is a follow up to Furry Galaxy 75: Pandora’s Box and features many of the same characters. The story starts out when the characters use Dragonfly Probes to explore decaying Timelines, and other dimensions etc. I found the entire book very interesting on how the author included a lot of loose ends from the first book and a lot of what if’s. It was the aspect of time travel. In telling these little stories, where your are not quite sure what is going to happen next. I found Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes both interesting and enjoyable.

Although Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes is a book that stands upon it’s own. I swear I would have enjoyed it so much if I didn’t read Furry Galaxy 75: Pandora’s Box first.

Essentially a SFW book, even an adult will enjoy this book. Although I would have liked to get into the basic plot that runs through the entire book. There is just too much to tell, and fear it will ruin the book for some. All I will say is that you like to see characters in a book get into mess, not always of their making, and how they get out of it.

This is the book for you.
