Book Reviews: The Saint-Germain Chronicles +The Green Hornet: Still at Large! part 1

The Saint-Germain Chronicles by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

This is a collection of short stories about the immortal count.

The Spider Glass
In Edwardian England, a man tells a tale of an antique mirror and how it came to his family. This is okay.

Best Line:
“Had run off to the continent, which was a damned, silly thing to do, considering the times.”

Renewal
James Tree, a former lover of Madelaine, dies in WWII and rises as a vampire. This is okay.

Art Songs
A brief interlude in the Count’s life in the 1950s. This was enjoyable.

Seat Partner
A student sits next to the Count on a plane. Good.

Cabin 33
The Count runs a resort and a killer lurks. This was okay but the Count doesn’t really work in the modern day.

The Green Hornet: Still at Large! Edited by Joe Gentile, Winn Scott Eckert, & Matthew Baugh part 1

This is the 3rd ‘Hornet’ anthology.

Hero
The Hornet steps in to avert a gang war. This is okay.

The Black Torpedo
Someone’s knocking off crime lords, once again the Hornet must save the day. This is okay.

The World Will End In Fire
Kato’s origin story continues as his first meeting with Britt Reid is revealed. This was mediocre.

The Man Inside
A wounded Green Hornet has to bust a man out of jail. This is okay.

Death From Beyond
A condemned man rises from the grave for revenge. Too silly.

Play The Game
A PI sets a trap for the darned Hornet. Okay.
