The nitty-gritty: A unique and many-layered world that left me craving more world-building details, but contained some of the coolest fantasy elements I’ve read in a long time. We had so many ways to describe different types of wind. Lifts. Crosses. Constants. Gaps. I might one day hear them all. Something low and large echoed […]

The nitty-gritty: A dark and dangerous magical world, an awesome anti-hero, stellar writing—what more do you need? My skin was covered with tattoos and scars. A lot of my ink was work related, you might say. Symbols, formulas, pacts, and wards. My scars, ah, my scars. They came from motorcycle accidents, knives, bullets, claws, broken […]

The nitty-gritty: An action-packed techno-thriller—a bit of a departure for Wendig—that still manages to entertain, despite some over-the-top story elements. If there’s one thing you can count on from Chuck Wendig, it’s that he’s not afraid to try out new genres. I didn’t know much about Zer0es going into it, and I wasn’t sure what […]

The nitty-gritty: A dark (very dark) and violent (very violent) trip through a deranged landscape with the characters of Alice In Wonderland. Except in this book, you may not recognize them… Cake. She was thinking of cake, the soft crumbly sweetness of it on her tongue. She had not eaten cake for years. There certainly […]

The nitty-gritty: A gritty follow-up that delivers on action and chills, with plenty of awesome characters. Sunrise came slow, preceded by an uptick in the distant sound of traffic, honking horns, and sirens. Anna wondered if there was anywhere you could go in L.A. and not hear it. The city’s circulatory system, as clogged and […]

The nitty-gritty: A loud, drunken horror story with the frantic pace of punk rock, filled with snarky characters and awesome dialog. Oh yeah, and lots of blood. We were trying to come up with a name for our new drink: giant fountain cups from this hole-in-the-wall pizza place, half-filled with soda, half-filled with cheap hobo […]
