The world is built on tragedy. Every piece of civilization, from small village to sprawling city, is altered by the events that cause pain and suffering to its people. While there are countless tragedies that have happened throughout the Earth’s history, it is those that happen without any warning that can affect us the most […]

War can be a tricky set-up for the final book in a trilogy. The fights in the first two books that have been leading up to the climactic battle need to have engaged the reader thus far, but the last major conflict needs to top them all, no matter how amazing and epic the others […]

The second book in a trilogy is a difficult beast to contend with. It needs to answer enough questions and fulfil enough expectations from the first novel to keep the reader satisfied, but without tipping the scales of interest to make the third novel unnecessary. This is by no means an easy feat and must […]

I have not yet met a fantasy fan who isn’t into maps, at least when it comes to those printed within the newest book they just picked up. Detailed maps permeate our favorite genre far more than dragons, elves, and hero princes. There is something about seeing the land your about to explore fleshed out […]

Reading fantasy can tend to feel like traversing the width and breadth of your home country. You’re seeing the beauty of the land and its people, taking in all the sights of differing regions and the varying cultures that make them up but, at the end of the day, it all starts to feel a […]

I have no doubt that those of you reading this have a fair sized book collection and can admit to owning at least a few novels on your shelves that, perhaps, are coated in a thick layer of dust. These poor little guys have generally been purchased on a whim while just “taking a look” […]

When I had decided to give Unwrapped Sky by Rjurik Davidson a read, I had gone in with certain expectations. Seeing the head of a powerful Minotaur next to an attractive, serious looking woman holding a dagger in each had on the cover, you’d be forgiven if you thought you were picking up a fantasy […]

I feel like I have a thing for crews. In my first review here I praised the quirky scoundrels that took centre stage in Patrick Weeke’s The Palace Job and, after a brief stint in Earthsea, I’m back with another review involving another gang of less-than-reputable thieves. No, these are not the beloved crews of […]

The idea of reviewing a known classic was quite daunting. There’s less to worry about when reviewing a newly released or few months old novel, as there are not yet a legion of fans behind it that have been in love with the story for years and years. So forgive me if I appear slightly […]

BioWare has created a number of my favorite video game franchises. Alongside the critically acclaimed Knights of the Old Republic, their blood soaked fantasy world of Dragon Age and alien covered sci-fi universe of Mass Effect have entranced, enthralled, and enriched countless fans who’ve pour hours into their story driven campaigns. Imagine my surprise as […]
