WAKING GODS by Sylvain Neuvel – Review

The nitty-gritty: Higher stakes, terrifying alien robots, and plenty of human drama as well, I thoroughly enjoyed this follow-up to Sleeping Giants. I had a blast reading Sleeping Giants last year, and despite some issues with the format, I enjoyed Neuvel’s original take on the alien invasion story. If you haven’t read Sleeping Giants, the […]

The nitty-gritty: Disturbing, violent, weird and hallucinatory. This story is tough to handle. How can I even begin to describe Waggoner? He looked and sounded exactly like me.

KINGS OF THE WYLD by Nicholas Eames – Review

KINGS OF THE WYLD by Nicholas Eames – Review
Posted March 27, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 17 Comments

The nitty-gritty:  Clever, exciting, irreverent, hysterically funny and surprisingly emotional, Kings of the Wyld is a must-read for EVERYONE. “Castia needs fighters!” [Gabe] shouted above the thunder of stamping feet. “It needs great and glorious bands!” he yelled over the percussive crash of sword and shield. “Castia needs heroes!” he roared, and they roared back […]
