Review: Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) by John Gwynne

Review: Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) by John Gwynne

OK! I’m calling it! Malice (The Faithful and the Fallen #1) expired to DNF (at 23%) status on 10-Jul-2017 due to extreme prejudice against boredom. I did NOT enjoy much of the 23% of Malice that I completed. I was bored, bored, BORED and nothing occurred – with the exception… Read more »

Review: Penric’s Demon (Penric and Desdemona #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Review: Penric’s Demon (Penric and Desdemona #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold

So. I have a handful of Bujold books but I’ve never finished one before Penric’s Demon. I actually started reading Penric’s Demon because Subterranean Press had a sale. Penric and the Shaman (Penric and Desdemona #2) was one of the books on sale so I decided to read the first… Read more »

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways. I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I read The Zero Stone, I… Read more »

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

I adored We Are Legion. The Bobs are a lot of fun – though I prefer Bob 1.0 (or is that Bob 2.0?). I have to say, I’m really running into some great Space Operas. I have high hopes this trend will continue. The beginning was only sightly slow but… Read more »

Review: The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne

Review: The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne

There’s not really much to be said. The Billionaire Wins the Game follows the same of format as a typical Harlequin – but I think it’s closer to the Romance line than the Presents line. I can’t say that I particularly enjoyed The Billionaire Wins the Game – I was… Read more »

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Well, it was bound to happen at some point or the other. We’re three books into this series (Call of Crows) and 4 books into this universe (Hunting Season, The Unleashing, and The Undoing) so a clunker was bound to happen. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Unyielding. I… Read more »

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

I love Empress Hail: I took the glass. “To vengeance.” [Redacted] raised his glass. “I have seen that look before. I would have pity for those you seek, but for the fact that I know they deserve whatever you have planned. May you find your revenge and may it taste… Read more »

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Legal Wolf’s Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here. I was rather excited about Legal Wolf’s Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I’ve not read a lot of Eve Langlais… Read more »

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

I loved All Systems Red. The very first chapter let me know that I was really going to enjoy this ride. And I did. I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels… Read more »

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

I really enjoyed Behind the Throne but not for (all) my usual reasons. I was a little skeptical in the beginning – Haili IS a runaway princess and that’s trope-y from beginning to end – but this was a runaway hit for me. I like that Haili isn’t a push… Read more »
