The Infinity of Space and Other Humorous Concepts

Hi! Today, in my review, I'm going to discuss three books. All are independently published, and I will be singing the praises of this amazing publishing option, as well as warning people away from the dragons and goblins that lurk along the way. For like any good fantasy quest, the journey to the Lost Tower... Continue Reading →


Book Review: Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

I am a big fan of the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. In fact, the audiobooks of Red Rising, narrated so fantastically by Tim Gerard Reynolds, are what sparked my love of audiobooks. It wasn't only the narration, which is really top tier, but also the energy of the story itself that made me... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: Southern Gothic, How-To Feed Your Hero, Young Nobles With a Touch of Fey, and Witchery

This week I'm finishing up two books from last week before starting a couple of new ones. I'm about twenty percent through What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank by Krista D. Ball. So far this has been a pretty fun read. Sure it's non-fiction, but it's also a humorous read and a pretty informative writing guide.... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Sisters Mederos by Patrice Sarath

I was immediately interested in this book because it's a fantasy of manners which is one of my favorite sub-genres of fantasy.

This Week in Reading: Ongoing Rebellions, Southern Witches, Fantasy of Manners, and Medieval Recipes

The last week sure does feel like it flew by fast. I'm still working on listening to the audiobook of Iron Gold by Pierce Brown. I am really enjoying it but it does tend to be on the grimmer side if things, so I can only do so much of the audio a day. I... Continue Reading →


Good morning and Happy Monday, WTF. Today, I'm stepping back into this joint blogging endeavor and letting my once-briefly-noticed blog Stark Writing Mad fall by the wayside. I realized a while back that I could blog regularly or write novels and stories, and since my various characters have a lot of pull in my head,... Continue Reading →

Low Flying Fantasy: The Coldfire Trilogy

Today, I'll be talking about an underrated Science-Fantasy series by C.S. Friedman, The Coldfire Trilogy. Every so often, I'll find myself in a bookstore holding a book I might have started decades ago, or at least wanted to read, and so it was with the second book, When True Night Falls. I'm not even sure... Continue Reading →

New Arrivals!

A few new books have been added to my gigantic never-ending to-be-read mountain! The top two are brand new books just published this month. First up is Moonshine by Jasmine Gower. The first thing that struck me with this book was the beautiful cover. (I admit I'm a bit of a sucker for a lovely... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Poisoned Blade by Kate Elliott

Poisoned Blade is the second book in Kate Elliott's YA trilogy, Court of Fives. This trilogy follows Jessamy, a young girl born in a land called Efea which was conquered and consequently colonized by the Saroese from across the sea many generations before. She is the daughter of a famous Patron (of Saroese origins) general... Continue Reading →
