Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

I really can’t remember what encouraged me to read Dark Currents. I am a fan of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series (at least the first six) but I’ve only tried one other book by Ms Carey and I didn’t enjoy or finish it (The Sundering) even though I found it… Read more »

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

DNF at 45% I’ve been sitting on Dark Lord of Derkholm for a while now. Initially I really liked it and found it humorous. It reminded me of Pratchett’s DiscWorld a bit (in its humor only). So color me shocked when I ran into a vaguely worded but pretty obvious… Read more »

Review: God Is Disappointed in You by Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler (Cartoonist)

Review: God Is Disappointed in You by Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler (Cartoonist)

God Is Disappointed in You is a shortened and comedic re-writing of the entire Bible. Yup. You read that correctly. It’s ok to be wrong once in a while. How stupid you look when you’re wrong is directly proportional to how certain you were right. A wise man will always… Read more »

Review: Winds of Fate (Mage Winds #1, Valdemar #10) by Mercedes Lackey

Review: Winds of Fate (Mage Winds #1, Valdemar #10) by Mercedes Lackey

This is it. The book that started it all. The beginning of my Mercedes Lackey habit and my Fantasy journey. For me, Everything Valdemar begins with Elspeth. From my review of By the Sword: I first met Mercedes Lackey while browsing the stacks at the public library in my home… Read more »
