Review: The Daylight War by Peter V. Brett

Review: The Daylight War by Peter V. Brett

***Spoilers from the previous books***Despite liking THE DAYLIGHT WAY, generally speaking, I can’t deny my overall impression that the series has been poorly planned. The first book was excellent, the second book spent an entire third of its content giving background on a new POV, and this third book reiterated half of that information, giving […]

Review: Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan

Review: Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan

SO . . . I’m not gonna sugar-coat it, shit goes DOWN in this book. There’s the Morgase situation, which is one unfortunate event after another. We’ve watched the Pattern rearrange itself for Rand, Mat, and Perrin. To their benefit. This almost seems like the opposite. And FYI, if you don’t already know, I have […]

Review: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Review: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

I did a research paper on Edmund from KING LEAR when I took a literature course on Shakespeare in college. The focus was on his illegitimacy and how by constantly being mocked and disparaged about his less than noble birth (by the nobles he was forced to associate with), he had two choices: become a […]

Review: The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett

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 […]

Audiobook Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Going in, I knew that this audiobook was probably going to be a letdown given how the reviews were stacking up, but I got it as a daily deal, so no big. The blurb is misleading with its “groundbreaking modern fantasy series” because Sophie Jordan wrote a very similar story back in 2010 with FIRELIGHT. […]

Review: The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan

Review: The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan

SO. Most of my favorite things in this series are in play now. I’m particularly fond of the time spent in Ebou Dar and a couple of other things that are still in development, but, yeah, we are well on our way. For some reason I’m have no a hard time coming up with plot […]

Review: Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

Review: Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong

This is an interesting series by Kelley Armstrong, who is one of my favorite authors. I was very intrigued by the first book in this series. This series is about two twin sisters who live in a different world. They are the Keeper and the Seeker, which is a coveted position in their world. They […]

Audiobook Review: Heir to The Shadows by Anne Bishop

Audiobook Review: Heir to The Shadows by Anne Bishop

It took me a full year to build up the courage to listen to HEIR TO THE SHADOWS after being thoroughly traumatized by book 1. I really love Anne Bishop’s THE OTHERS series, and I’m a firm believer in second chances when it comes to authors, so after twelve months of mental preparation, here we […]

Review: Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

WORDS OF RADIANCE is the second installment of Brandon Sanderson’s STORMLIGHT ARCHIVE series, and, unfortunately . . . it fell a little flat for me. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it. This was one of those occasions when my rating steadily declined the more I stewed about the ends and outs . . . […]
