Review: Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant

Review: Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant

Last year when I listed my most anticipated new releases in a mid-year roundup Bookfessional, INTO THE DROWNING DEEP by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) was at the top of my list.

After finishing Chuck Wendig’s AFTERMATH trilogy, I tried to settle in to several non-STAR WARS books, but after a few lackluster beginnings that were all unceremoniously set aside, I surrendered to my fate and indulged my recent obsession with THRAWN. I didn’t know what to expect, having never heard of the character, but it was […]

Review and Squawk: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig

Review and Squawk: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig

Before we get started: 1. I am not an expert on the subject of STAR WARS novels. This is in fact my first STAR WARS novel, so on the subject of canon, I got nuthin’. #blankslate 2. I am not a Chuck Wendig expert. This is in fact my first Chuck Wendig novel (that I […]
