Communication Failure

Warning: watch out for [EXPLETIVE] spoilers (even if they're minor). After devouring Mechanical Failure by Joe Zieja last year, this was the book that I've been waiting to come out, i.e., my most anticipated read of 2017. It felt like it took an eternity to actually come out and even though I get that publishing is a slow business, I… Continue reading Communication Failure

There were a lot of factors, I think, that played into why I read this book so quickly and… Continue reading Kangaroo Too

Not only did my review of The Broken Eye actually prompt me to… Continue reading The Blood Mirror

A Promise of Fire

So on a scale of having your liver repeatedly ripped out by an eagle for all eternity to being the ruler of Mount Olympus, reading this book surpassed even the mighty, lightning-wielding Zeus. This book was freakin' awesome. *Minor spoilers abound after this point* It was particularly awesome because I had absolutely no idea what… Continue reading A Promise of Fire
