The Allow of Law by Brandon Sanderson

The Alloy of Law is introducing us to the Alloy Era, which is the companion series to Mistborn.   Review doesn’t really contain any spoilers for the previous books and none for this one. 300 years after the world changing events from the Hero of Ages we are back in Scadrial. In the meanwhile a…

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Frost and Starlight is the Novella in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and it takes place after the third book.   Review contains Spoilers for the previous books!   After the events of A Court of Wings and Ruin we were left wondering what will happen after the big…

Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman

I fully intended to read and review Mark Lawrence’s Red Sister for my next book, but… I decided I wanted to write a superhero book, so I went where the winds of my imagination took me.   And that’s how I ended up shipwrecked on this little superhero novel island. I’m not going to wax…

Obsidio by Amy Kaufmann & Jay Kristoff

We got the Illuminae Files-Triology wrapped up with Obsidio. Be warned that the review will contain slight spoilers for the previous books if you haven’t read them yet.   The story picks up immediately after the ending of Gemina and this time we are on yet another space ship, the container ship Mao. Now our…

Eisenhorn: Xenos by Dan Abnett

I am excited. I’m reviewing Eisenhorn by Dan Abnett. The first Warhammer 40k book on this site. Partly I’m excited because I’m a fan of Warhammer, and whenever someone asks the question “I’m interested in Warhammer, where should I start reading?” I also give this as their first book. Partly I’m excited because Warhammer is…

Magic and Sankt Peterburg – The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

Even The Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

“Kamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the Emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.” Very rarely I come across a young adult fantasy book that surprises…

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

  The John Green fans waited almost five years for his new book, which finally came out in October of last year. The announcement of it was unexpected – especially after the initial statement of the author that he would likely never publish again, because he felt like nothing he would ever write could compare…

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

Okay, we’re going to try this whole “review a book that I actually like” thing again. You know, prove I actually like books, and haven’t started this blog as some sort of bizarre hate fetish, literary revenge porn. The next contender is The Black Prism by Brent Weeks. The first in The Lightbringer Series, released…

Sword Sisters by Sarah Cardinal and Alex Bledsoe

My first two reviews were pretty scathing. I know. I was pretty harsh on them, and that’s because I was reading outside of my comfort zone in both cases. So let’s get back in the zone, and read something that I should like. I picked up Sword Sisters on audible purely by chance. I was…
