Scarred Lands Player’s Guide – Role-playing Game Review 

The Scarred Lands, Player’s Guide was originally created at White Wolf before Onyx Path Publishing and Nocturnal Media took it over.

Unsouled by Will Wight

Unsouled by Will Wight

The Monkey King meets Up. For a novel entitled Unsouled, Will Wight’s prototypical story has a lot of soul. I’d picked it up a couple of years ago, but each time I’d tried to start, like many books buried on the slopes of Mount TBR, I never made it past the first two pages. Not […]

Legacy of Ghosts by Alicia Wanstall-Burke – Cover Reveal

Legacy of Ghosts by Alicia Wanstall-Burke – Cover Reveal 

Writing Legacy of Ghosts may have been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in a creative capacity, but choosing a cover artist didn’t take a second thought. Pen Astridge created the cover for Blood of Heirs, book one of The Coraidic Sagas, so it made complete sense to ask (beg) her to create something for […]

Spoiler Warning: This review contains minor spoilers for The Eye of the World. “The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.

Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence

Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence
5

Mark Lawrence delivered an amazing story about a convent that trains young girls into warrior nuns in a world where they are feared and needed. The author is a storyteller virtuoso to know that sequels and follow ups to stories are best when they start where the predecessor ended. And, there is further development in […]
