So What’s The Fuss About Evernote? 

Writers are always being reminded that inspiration can strike at any time. It could be during the bustle of a busy work day or in the middle of night. And just like dreams, ideas can quickly fade to a distant memory if they’re not recorded. As a result, writers are advised that they should keep […]

His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers

His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers 

There are really only two words to describe this series. Assassin. Nuns. That’s all you need to know. Or, well, that’s all I needed to know to pique my interest. This series covers the stories of three young women in France, during the tumult Anne of Brittany faced after her father’s death. The story begins […]

Fantastic Four trailer released! 

This’ll be a quick post, but because we featured it on our most anticipated movies of 2015 list, we thought we should let you know that the first trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot has been released!

The Brothers Cabal by Jonathan L. Howard

The Brothers Cabal by Jonathan L. Howard 

This review contains spoilers. Please read with caution if you have yet to finish the book. Cabal looked at the man, and he was astonished, and yet so profoundly relieved that when he spoke, the first word was almost a sob. “You,” he said, his voice thin and weak from illness and disuse. “It’s you.” […]

Gemini Cell by Myke Cole

Gemini Cell by Myke Cole 

With each book, Myke Cole levels up, and Gemini Cell is no exception. This is Cole’s best work to date—a blending of magic, action, and romance that fans of Cole and first-timers alike will love. Gemini Cell takes place before Cole’s Shadow Ops trilogy, but it is not a prequel. This is a completely separate […]

Symbols: A Vital Worldbuilding Tool 

A few days before writing this post, an old acquaintance reached out to me by text to wish me a happy new year. I texted her back, asking how her year has been so far. She replied with a poop emoticon. And I understood immediately. My acquaintance was able to answer my question with sentiment […]

Waylander by David Gemmell

Waylander by David Gemmell 

David Gemmell is a name known, I am sure, to everyone who reads fantasy. If it is not, then I hope this review might convince you to pick up one of his books. “They had begun to torture the priest when the stranger stepped from the shadow of the trees.” The story begins with the […]

Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch

Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch 

Foxglove Summer is the fifth book in the Peter Grant series, which started with Rivers of London. Whilst not a complete departure from previous books, Foxglove Summer does take a slight break from the usual formula to keep the series fresh and engaging. The Peter Grant series follows the aforementioned character after he discovers an […]

Roads Go Ever Ever On

Roads Go Ever Ever On 

Something important is ending as we speak; the end of an era of not only entertainment, not just a story, but our invited cinematic access to a deep, rich and vivid world. I’m talking about Middle Earth. I wouldn’t even necessarily say I’m talking about The Hobbit as a movie, or an adaptation, either. Rather, […]
