I continued to be enamored with this series. N. K. Jemisin’s writing is beautiful, and the world she’s created is so rich and complex. Her characters leap off the page they’re so full of life, and with this second book, the plot swings towards a final destination. All with new (and sometimes horrifying) twists. Essun … More Review – The Obelisk Gate
I really enjoyed this book. A lot of he reviews on Goodreads complained about it not measuring up to the X-Files, but as someone who never watched that show… well I can’t really say how it measures up, but I thought the book itself was great. I’m becoming a big fan of Seanan McGuire’s eerie … More Review – Indexing
You all have to see these awesome marker drawings of Fleet Commander Lance Ashburn and bounty hunter Lissa a.k.a. the Shadow by Magnastorm, also known as Plushiluv. She does really amazing work, and I’m thrilled to have these two images by her! Look how fierce they both are! Totally in love with these, and they … More Lance and Lissa by Magnastorm
A solid conclusion to the Bone Universe trilogy. Horizon alternates points of view between three characters, which was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I was thrilled to return to Kirit as a narrator, and greatly enjoyed her chapters. Macal the councilor was a new voice for this story, but one that I … More Review – Horizon
So after a fairly recent flu shot rendered useless by my significant other bringing home the unstoppable sickness, I’ve been pretty out of it the past couple days. But that actually turned out okay. Normally, being sick would have put me behind some project or another, leaving me stressed and anxious. It’s easy to fall … More The flu robbed me of a blog post this week so how about a life update?
This is one of those books that drew me in, held me fast, and then left me with a feeling of such bittersweetness that I can’t help giving it five stars. Following two main protagonists and shifting back and forth between their points of view, The Scorpio Races is an intense character study that revolves … More Review – The Scorpio Races
Hmm… so I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I did enjoy most of it. The magic system, politics, and a good chunk of the cast were extremely intriguing to me. On the other hand, I spent large amounts of time very confused about what was happening. For … More Review – The Mirror Empire

What a cool book! This is a fairly quick read as it’s not very long, and there are plenty of chapter breaks to speed up the pacing. I wish it had taken a little more time to really develop some of the characters at a steadier pace, and draw out the blossoming relationship between Sierra … More Review – Shadowshaper
Not a bad book, but not one that captivated me, either. There are a LOT of characters swirling around in here, only three of which I felt I actually spent enough time with to fully understand and keep separate from the rest. I wish the book had spent more time world building and letting me … More Review – Winter’s Reach
