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: 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 →

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 →
