[Reviews] Lean Mean Thirteen

I liked this book, and I like this series, but I'm running out of things to say. Read this review to watch me try, in spite of that.

[Reviews] Twelve Sharp

It's solid enough to entertain, but probably not a good entry point for series newcomers.

[Reviews] Eleven on Top

Breaks free of the expected formula in some pleasing ways, resulting in a more enjoyable story than the series has recently delivered.
