The Iron Crown lives up to the hype. It reminds me of the epic fantasy novels that I grew up with. The magic is intriguing and creates a world that is fascinating to discover as the pages rapidly turn. It is engaging, exciting, and many other things. It also has a unique take on dragons that makes it a lot of fun to read and to figure out how it all works out in the grand scheme of things. The characters are beautifully flawed, with each having a weakness to either overcome or succumb to.
The Last of the Atalanteans surpasses it’s predecessor in every respect, which is saying something since I fucking loved A Drowned Kingdom. Full of suspense, action, magic and political intrigue, this series is perfect for fans of A Song of Ice and Fire, especially the new House of the Dragon show.
Mark Timmony offers readers a fascinating glimpse into the past of his ever expanding world, with a fast-paced novella that is sure to peak the interest of new readers, while giving fans just enough to keep us coming back for more.
Overall, this is a series that has me invested in every way that it can. I look forward to more bloody conflicts, political intrigues, and seeing how Othrun continues to develop. This is a series that will keep you thinking about it at all times of the day or night. I felt the shock of what had happened and I keep thinking about it, even after finishing it days ago. If you haven’t read what has happened to the Atalanteans, you should.
This is a unique ride, full of peril to all of the characters as they look to survive the wrath of the gods and their followers. It takes a lot of my favorite kind of abilities and introduces them in new ways, making for a fun and engaging read. It was nice to feel like each chapter was a finished story, giving a sense of satisfaction at each new chapter. Find yourself cheering on some new characters as they look to take battle to the gods themselves.
Starbinder will leave you breathless, filled with heart-pounding action with extremely engaging characters. The magic flows off the pages, entrancing all who read it, ensnaring them into the adventure that they will not want to escape. I eagerly encourage all to pick up this novella and become introduced into a world that will definitely be talked about in many fantasy circles.
The Pariah is a good outlaw tale, full of brutal and bloody violence, and an overall tale of discovery. It is exciting and has a lot of hints of what could be expected in future installments. There is a lot of enjoyment, with a writing prose that is expertly crafted, making for an easy read.
Overall, this novel was very entertaining. It is a dark tale that will hit the right notes with readers who like a good werewolf tale full of bloody action fights. There is a lot more history and lore that can be explored, either in the future or from past tales that would explain more about the werewolves.
Solace Lost by Michael Sliter is a grimdark diamond in the rough that I’m surprised I don’t see more people talking about.
Brilliant writing that will leave you thinking about what just happened and what is to come in all of the right ways. I highly recommend this novel for those with ties to Irish history as well as to those who want a great novel with amazing strong female POVs. This is a novel that will resonate with many different types of readers, leaving a taste that will make them crave for more of this series. I eagerly look forward to where it will go.
The Marauders, The Daughter, and The Dragon is not only an excellent book title, it’s a fucking excellent book. Whimsical, satirical, but never farcical, Lockhaven walks a tight rope of family drama and Terry Pratchett-esque satire like Dick Grayson.
Thrice is one that is suitable for all types of readers. It has adventure, revenge, crime syndicates, and a mystery that will keep readers guessing up to the end. I did the audio and the author does a fantastic job of this as well! This is an exciting new series with a ton of potential and promise!!
