Review: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden

Review: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden

One of the most interesting characters introduced in THE CLONE WARS series is Asajj Ventress, so when I found an entire novel about her in the SW canon, I one-clicked. Ventress was a Bad Guy, the “apprentice” of Count Dooku (who couldn’t really have an apprentice b/c Rule of Two), but when she was betrayed […]

Review: Lost Stars by Claudia Gray

Review: Lost Stars by Claudia Gray

On the one hand, I’m kind of glad that I found this installment of the STAR WARS canon to be so completely mediocre: it proves I’m not some maniacal fangirl that loves all-the-things without regard to factors like relevance or lack of ingenuity. On the other hand . . . Ugh. LOST STARS is the […]

Review: Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn

Review: Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn

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 added another new bookshelf to Goodreads: religious nutters I preface my review with that statement, b/c it’s important that you know exactly how off-putting I find anyone who uses religion as a crutch to excuse their abominable behavior. Agamemnon sacrificing his daughter to ensure favorable winds as he sails to Troy? Kill him on […]

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. I’ve been struggling with a feeling since about midway through book 2, but I’ve been reluctant to give it voice . . . b/c it would […]
