Emberhawk by Jamie Foley

I requested a copy of this a while back and finally got around to reading it. This is a simple storyline in the fantasy genre with some standard tropes and some not-so-standard ones.

The Killing Fog (The Grave Kingdom #1) by Jeff Wheeler

It has been almost forever (or it feels like it) that I have written a review feeling even mildly professional. The tone and nuances of what I want to convey are hidden beneath platitudes. It might have been the books I read, but it could also just be the time and usual lethargy. I intend… Continue reading The Killing Fog (The Grave Kingdom #1) by Jeff Wheeler

The Dragon Keeper (The Rain Wild Chronicles #1) by Robin Hobb

The following are some of my most enthusiastic reviews on the blog for a single series. Although this is a different sub-series, the previous books all are in the order of the main Elderlings series and are requisite reading.

I do not remember reading the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling, but I must have done because I felt a hint of recognition at the tone of some of the stories. I liked the content of the foreword, but I think that also set my bar incredibly high about what I was to encounter… Continue reading Not So Stories by Adiwijaya Iskandar; Joseph Elliott-Coleman; Raymond Gates; Zina Hutton; Georgina Kamsika; Cassandra Khaw; Paul Krueger; Stewart Hotston; Tauriq Moosa; Jeannette Ng; Ali Nouraei; Zedeck Siew; Wayne Santos; Achala Upendran

Smoke & Summons by Charlie N. Holmberg

Narrated by: Scott Merriman, Lauren Ezzo I read the whole Paper Magician series by the author but only reviewed The Plastic Magician on the blog. I also found The Fifth Doll pretty entertaining, so I started this new series with some semblance of excitement. We are introduced to a world where the Almighty is someone/thing called the… Continue reading Smoke & Summons by Charlie N. Holmberg
