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 →

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 →

Book Review: Cast in Deception by Michelle Sagara

The Chronicles of Elantra has been a favorite series of mine for years, and this latest edition to the series, the thirteenth, was a fun ride. For anyone new to these books, the series focuses on the life of Kaylin Neya--a member of the Hawks, a sort of a police force for the city of... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Blackthorn and Grim series by Juliet Marillier

I listened to these books on audio late last year and fell in love with the characters so much that I marathoned all three of these pretty much back to back. I'd read one of Juliet Marillier's books before, but that was a long time ago. I'm regretting not reading more of her work and... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin

Earlier this year I read Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin and I still find myself asking just what did it all mean? Looking at other reviews, it seems to be very divisive--either people love it or hate it. I'm in the love camp, but I can't even explain why. But I'm going to try. The... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Shattered Sigil Trilogy by Courtney Schafer

I cross-posted this review over at reddit in case anyone wants to follow the discussion there. Earlier this month I read The Shattered Sigil Trilogy by Courtney Schafer. I loved it so much, I wanted to share my thoughts on it, but had to wait a bit before doing a proper review so that I... Continue Reading →
