Review: The Skull Throne by Peter V. Brett

Review: The Skull Throne by Peter V. Brett

***Spoilers from previous books and minor spoilers from this one.*** Peter V. Brett’s DEMON CYCLE began with a truly excellent first installment, but it’s been all downhill from there.

Review: The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett

MINOR SPOILERS. Second Book Syndrome . . . thy name is THE DESERT SPEAR. *sighs* I had a lot of issues with this book. A lot, a lot. The first third of the book is told from an entirely new POV. By itself, that would’ve made me cranky, b/c, yeah, I get that Jardir is […]
