The nitty-gritty: Not my favorite of the books so far, but still a very funny and imaginative installment in the Sin du Jour series. At some point I thought maybe Matt Wallace’s series would start to feel “been there, done that,” but thankfully, he seems to have an unlimited supply of humorous fodder up his sleeves, […]

The nitty-gritty: A short but foreboding story about the reincarnation of gods, and one unlucky man who finds himself in the middle of it all. I’ve come to appreciate solid writing and storytelling from the folks at Unsung Stories, and so I was excited to accept The Speckled God for review, which turned out to […]

The nitty-gritty: A magical and thrilling adventure into the world of dreams. It looks as if someone has attempted to build a clock but did not know when to stop. It is a cataclysm of clockwork parts in synchronized motion arranged in the shape of a frigate. The ship has no sails, barely any hull […]

The nitty-gritty: A clever, inter-dimensional homage to Lovecraft & Co., with lots of action, snark and humor. So here’s the thing. When I set off after the guy who stole the spear, I really didn’t expect to end the night chained to an altar in the ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral while my blood is […]

The nitty-gritty: An imaginative Pride and Prejudice retelling that will delight readers with its incredible world-building, deft characterizations and thrilling action. When I heard this book described as “Pride and Prejudice with dragons,” my first reaction was “Yes!” But then I thought, “Huh? That sounds…weird?” This was an odd book for me because of the […]

The nitty-gritty: An fantastic, action-packed follow-up to Time Salvager, full of complex characters and relationships, and yes, some time travel! I’m always happy to read a Wesley Chu book, especially since he’s the author of one of my favorite science fiction series, the Tao books. And I always love when a favorite author ventures out and […]
