Book Review: Once and Future

I’ll keep this review short.  Once and Future is my favorite book I’ve read in 2019. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t  put it down. I read the whole thing in one day and really wish the sequel was already out. Concerning the plot and concept, it reminded me of two of my favorite noContinue reading “Book Review: Once and Future”

Book Review: Cthulhu Blues

I finally got around to reading Cthulhu Blues, the third installment in the Spectra Files trilogy. It was refreshing to read a book set New England. Many of the books I’ve read lately have either been set on the West Coast or in the rural midwest. While I do enjoy reading about places I’ve neverContinue reading “Book Review: Cthulhu Blues”

Book Review: Empire of Light

I received a free copy of Empire of Light from the author, Alex Harrow, in exchange for a fair and honest review. Empire of Light was an action packed read that was challenging to review without giving away, but I think I’ve manage to come up with something spoiler free. There was no shortage of actionContinue reading “Book Review: Empire of Light”

Book Review: The Winter of the Witch

The worst thing about The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden  is that it means the series is over. I could read another trilogy about Vasya and Morozko even though this book clearly wraps up the conflicts that began in the Bear and the Nightingale.  Now, before I wind up spoiling something, I’ll getContinue reading “Book Review: The Winter of the Witch”

Book Review: Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You

I received a free copy of this from the author in exchange for a fair, honest review. If you are looking for a quick, fun read, then I highly recommend reading Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You.  Bryant Adams is a goofy narrator who likes to break the fourth wall.Continue reading “Book Review: Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You”

Book Review: The Razor

I received a free copy of this through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The Razor is both the title of the book and the setting. It’s a small strip of habitable land on an otherwise inhabitable planet: one side is firestorms and radiation, the other is ice and cold that willContinue reading “Book Review: The Razor”

Book Review: The Outlaw and the Upstart King

If I was a new reader with no attachment to Elizabeth, I would give this book five stars because it was beautifully written and clearly well researched. The plot was well executed. The world richly developed.

Book Review: Hiddensee

Hiddensee: A Tale of the Once and Future Nutcracker definitely gets five stars. I’ve been reading Gregory Maguire’s novels since I was in high school.  I picked up Wicked in a time when I was just starting rediscover a love of books that had been lost when I got “too old” for picture books. That feelingContinue reading “Book Review: Hiddensee”
