Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
4

Autumn is here and right around the corner is Halloween. I usually pass on scary books and films because I like my sleep. But, as it’s the time of year for it, I picked up one of the books that has resided on my TBR pile for a while: Let the Right One In by […]

Edinburgh Seer by Alisha Klapheke

Edinburgh Seer by Alisha Klapheke
4.5

Outlander meets National Treasure (thankfully, with no Nic Cage). Having heard amazing things about Alisha Klapheke’s Uncommon World series, I decided to check out her Edinburgh Seer for two reasons: one, it was the only one of her works available on audiobook; and two, it didn’t occur to me that the story wasn’t epic fantasy. […]

Self-Publishing Fantasy Blog-Off #4: Another Five Fall

Self-Publishing Fantasy Blog-Off #4: Another Five Fall 

* Disclaimer * Writing and reading are subjective arts. What some folks will absolutely love, others will dislike. It is a bit like Marmite in the UK – normal people dislike it intensely, but some weird folks actually enjoy the taste of warm road surface with fresh roadkill upon their tongue. To each their own, […]

Curse by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié

Curse by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié
3.5

Spoiler Warning: This review contains spoilers. Please read with caution if you have yet to finish book one. This book, as I might say to my friends, is a trip. (Actually, it’s nowhere near as intense as I remember the next two books being. Of course, as I remembered the first book being better than […]

El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time) – TV Series Review

El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time) – TV Series Review 

I am a sucker for costume dramas. If a show involves somebody wearing farthingales, I will give it a try, and I’ll usually hang in there even if it’s not that great. Usually on the stationary bike, I’ll pedal along, admiring fashions, upholstery, and candelabras. I’ve watched my share of mediocre historical dramas and fantasies, […]

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander
4

It seems that I have a thing for sentient elephants. My first experience was the excellent Downward to the Earth by Robert Silverberg. But, The Only Harmless Great Thing is much more than just sentient elephants, it’s an emotional piece of work creating a quite plausible alternate reality that makes us think about the morality […]

Draigon Weather by Paige L. Christie

Draigon Weather by Paige L. Christie
4.25

In Adfen, men fear the coming of Draigon Weather – the oppressive heat, the lasting droughts, the slow death of everything that can only be appeased by sacrifice. And women fear the coming of the Draigon – because it is always a woman who is sacrificed. Only nine-years-old, Leiel Sower has already lost her mother […]

Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe

Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe
4.5

Ferris Bueller Goes to Hogwarts: the Video Game. Though both have left tire tracks over my books in the charts and competitions, I can’t decide whether I hold a deeper grudge against Jonathan French’s Grey Bastards or Andrew Rowe’s Sufficiently Advanced Magic. For whatever reason, Amazon classifies LitRPG as Asian Myths and Legends, and as […]
