Book Review: Kingshold

Many, many years ago, the revered scribe J.R.R. Tolkien wrote "Not all who wander are lost." Wise he may have been, but he apparently never traveled with me. While our trip north was much less eventful than our trip south, I still had to spend most of Sunday in Bowling Green, KY, coping with a... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: Finishing up Song, Nevernight, diving into The Poppy War and Full Moon

So I have an odd reading week ahead of me in that most of these books are not things I normally would have picked up just by browsing, but I'm branching out and trying to expand my reading horizons a bit.

This Week in Reading: Finishing up Fitz, Zombies, Fairytale Re-tellings, and Finnish-inspired Epic Fantasy

I'm still finishing up Assassin's Quest but the good news is I only have about 150 pages left, and I'm also really enjoying this one. I finally hit a stride with it late last week into the weekend. I have to say, I like Fitz's character much more in this third book. I do have... 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 →

Read This Now: Sword in the Storm

I have a few more movie reviews for my irregular series on lesser-known works of fantasy, but I've been on vacation all week.
