Not very reliable and then it gets lost somewhere. ;)

I just bought the ebook of Glass Houses from Google Books.

#.46 Soulwalker by Erica Lawson : 2stars

A loner. An outcast. A killer.

A hundred years into the future, in a near-totalitarian state, there exists a group of feared Government assassins called The Black Shadow Corps. They are albinos, able to send their inner shadow to kill in the name of the law.
Tarris Waite is leader of The Black Shadow Corps. But she is different from them, visibly marked by her pale blue eyes. Her teammates consider her a half-breed, to be feared and despised.
A childhood accident left Tarris a paraplegic, yet she has never given up looking for a cure. Asher Hyrea is a medical researcher investigating nerve regeneration, and Tarris believes she may hold the key to her walking again.
But Tarris soon learns that nothing is as it seems. Suddenly, even the most trusted members of her Shadow Corps team are suspect. Could her meeting with Asher be more than mere coincidence?
When her loyalty is questioned, Tarris is left with no choice but to run. She is driven underground, where she discovers a horrifying secret that threatens the very fabric of society. Now Tarris is in a desperate fight to save her life and, more importantly, to save those who turned their back on her. But no one ever leaves the Corps alive.

This was romance disguised as SF. In was neither a good romance, nor good SF. To avoid.

#.47 You Can't Run From Love by Kate Snowdon : 2+stars
This was the first book by the author. She still has to learn a bit more about writing to publish a good book. Actually, this book well edited and re-written could be an interesting book.

#.48 Still Midnight by Denise Mina : 3stars
This is the first of a series that was recommended to me by the general, because the second book in the series has just won a prize. I was not that enthusiastic about the book although I enjoyed reading it. I'll read the second in the series to see if it is better.

I confess that I have gone over completely to the Dark e-Side. I was looking to buy a book yesterday, and I only looked for an epub copy.
