The nitty-gritty: A dangerous and thrilling tale that grips the reader from the first page and never lets up. If one thing is certain, you can usually count on seasoned and experienced writers to deliver a great story, and I’m happy to report, like so many other reviewers, that The Cruel Prince is a winner.

WINTERGLASS by Benjanun Sriduangkaew – Review

WINTERGLASS by Benjanun Sriduangkaew – Review
Posted January 8, 2018 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 16 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Exquisite writing and magical worldbuilding made this a reading experience I won’t soon forget. Lussadh turns on the heating and listens to the ghosts murmur, a low purr that thrums through walls and ebony boards. Shamans–alchemists of the spirit–can hear and understand their chatter, it is said, the secrets of the dead. If […]

I loved David Walton’s Supersymmetry, a fast-paced scientific thriller about time travel and alternate realities, so I knew that The Genius Plague was going to be a must-read. And wow, did I have […]

GODSGRAVE by Jay Kristoff – Review

GODSGRAVE by Jay Kristoff – Review
Posted September 5, 2017 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 14 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A bloody good, bloody brilliant sequel in Kristoff’s ode to the Roman Empire. Hey, let’s face it. This story is just bloody. Small, unavoidable spoilers for Nevernight, if you haven’t read it yet. Fair warning! There were several times while reading Godsgrave that I had to stop reading and ask myself, “Did Jay […]

The nitty-gritty: A heady mix of high entertainment, non-stop action and interesting facts about physics and future technology,  this book was, simply put, a blast! After reading a couple of fellow bloggers’ rave reviews of this book, I knew I had to get a hold of a copy and read it for myself. And they were […]
