Review: A Midnight’s Silence by T. Frohock

A Midnight’s Silence is another solid story by T. Frohock. Real characters are placed in dark and distressing situations, using a combination of music, magic, love and trust to survive. It introduces the reader to a world of angels and daimons in 1930s Spain, with our protagonist Diago being half angel, half daimon. This puts him in a unique position because the two...

Flashback Friday Review: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere was my first book by Gaiman and honestly, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. What I found was a an atmospheric and magical exploration of the bowels of London. That may sound a bit odd, but really, I think it may be suiting because the book does have an odd edge to it (in a good way). The characters in this...

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

It may not be Friday, but I couldn’t think of a better way to start December than a Flashback Friday review of NOS4A2. Since I’m impatient it’s going up on a Monday. Imagine a bridge that could magically take you to where you need to be, even when you don’t even know where that is. Imagine being a young girl...

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

This was a short book, and this is going to be quite a short review. Without a doubt, I enjoyed the atmosphere of this book, it captures the wonders of youth so well. And the carnival is quite intriguing, it provides not just the young, but anyone that desires something, the answer to their dreams. The two boys, Jim and Will,...

Horns by Joe Hill

I read this book last year, and decided it was time to review it. It is easily one of my favorite reads last year and really reminded me why I used to read horror. The emotional connection with the characters is superb and really makes the book what it is. And the first few chapters … gah! Prepare for some...

Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves

  On a recent road trip with my boys (ages 9 and 11), I gave them several choices for audiobooks. Most of them were books I had read reviews for or had recommendations for.  After they read the blurbs and listened to the samples, they quickly agreed on Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reeves.  This was the one option...

The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay

  Guy Gavriel Kay has been on my “must try” list for years. I have heard him recommended so many times and I have come across devoted fans that will praise his prose endlessly. And on top of that, he writes stand-alone novels, so there is no fear of commitment here. With all of that, I have no idea why...

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

  So a few months back, I read Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill. I absolutely loved Horns, NOS4A2 and Locke & Key (my first graphic novel experience). Needless to say, I had high expectations for HSB. I’ve put off reviewing it because I can’t decide how to put into words how I felt about this book. Or really, if...

Dreams and Shadows by Robert C. Cargill

  Dreams and Shadows by Rober C. Cargill will open your eyes to the darker side of the fae as it illustrates a very interesting take on fairy tales. The creepy, disturbing, and frankly terrifying nature they bring to the human world.  The story follows the life of two boys. Ewan, who was raised among the magical and mystical creatures...
