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 […]

ZEROES by Chuck Wendig – Review

ZEROES by Chuck Wendig – Review
Posted August 17, 2015 by Tammy in 3 1/2 stars, Reviews / 16 Comments

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 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 […]

The nitty-gritty: An atmospheric and violent tale of alien invasion, where the human characters steal the show. Adaora went into her lab. As she descended the stairs, she could practically feel it. Yes, people had been down here. The broken lock made that clear. As soon as she’d turned on the lights, she turned them […]
