Review: Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho

Sorcerer to the Crown was a wonderful escape, a book that really takes you to a different time and place. One that is fraught with etiquette and expectations. Expectations that dictate what one should, and of course what one should not do. Then, to  make things more interesting, layer in magic, ghosts, fae and familiars and you get quite a delightful and...

Audiobook Review: The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin

The Fifth Season is a book that is not obvious in its strengths until you read it through to the end.

[su_quote]It was all going so nicely, right up until the massacre.[/su_quote] I’ll be honest. This is one of those books that is hard to keep track of, particularly in...

Review: Zer0es by Chuck Wendig

Reviews can be hard to write sometimes. This is definitely one of those times (it is also likely unpopular opinion time). I have a strong regard for Wendig and his other books, so I was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, there’s no way around it: I was disappointed.
