Review: Immortal Descent

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Title: Immortal Descent Author: Carolyn M Walker Stars: ★★ Inverting the Dracula female victim-trope, Immortal Descent suffers not from a lack of ideas but clumsy dialogue. Same length sentences create monotony. Lectures and foreboding vague phrases may have been intended to augment tension; instead, they... Continue Reading →

Review: The Soulkeepers

This review contains a spoiler! Readers beware. Title: The Soulkeepers Author: G. P. Ching Stars: ★★★ An interesting premise filled with small town Americana (not in a positive way) and a hodgepodge of mythology (or theology depending on your view). That being said, Ching managed to keep me reading. Her characters were generally intriguing if not likable,... Continue Reading →

High Summons

Aesthetic Boards - the glorious mashing of images to create a thematic storyboard. Tumblr is full of them. Instagram too - and I might just have tumbled down the rabbit hole a bit late. Either way, I'm hooked. However, as I created a board for my debut, High Summons, I realized how far my main character, Jon... Continue Reading →

Review: SENLIN ASCENDS

The review does not contain spoilers (though it does contain an out-of-context quote). Title: Senlin Ascends Author: Josiah Bancroft Rating: ★★★★★ I could absolutely gush about this book. At first, the use of adjectives seemed a bit too free-flowing, but the perfection of Bancroft's similes and metaphors won me over.  Even though it is a bit early... Continue Reading →

Review: Blackmark

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Part of the Free (Kindle) series.  Title: Blackmark Author: Jean Lowe Carlson Stars: ★★★ So many maps, so little time. An interesting feature to Carlson's writing is that she manages to make places feel touch-starved. Not in their lack of people but... Continue Reading →

Review: Battle Mage

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Part of the Free (Kindle) series.  Title:  Battle Mage Author: Peter A. Flannery Stars: ★★ From the very first line, Flannery's writing creates an odd distance between reader and the third person narrator. Words like "knew" and "felt" add further distance. The...

Part of the Free (Kindle) series.  Title: The Midnight Sea Author: Kat Ross Stars: ★★★ A few things that I don't think are spoilers but might change whether or not you want to read this book. One, it reference someone peeing themselves... Continue Reading →

Review: Of Cinder & Bone

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Part of the Free (Kindle) series.  Title: Of Cinder & Bone Author: Kyoko M. Stars: ★★★★★ First off, foreboding title? Check! Poem in the beginning which actually connects to the story while being a decent poem on its own? Check!? Weird -... Continue Reading →

Review: The Hawk’s Shadow

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Part of the Free (Kindle) series.  Title: The Hawk's Shadow Author: M. S. Verish Stars: ★★★ This was an extremely short read. It's really more of a teaser to get you into the series. Generally, I'm for this sort of temptation offering.... Continue Reading →
