Morningside Fall (Legends Of The Dustwalker # 2) by Jay Posey (book review).

Morningside Fall (Legends Of The Dustwalker # 2) by Jay Posey (book review).

At the end of Jay Posey’s debut ‘Three’, the first book in ‘The Legends Of The ‘Dustwalker’, I got the impression the titular character, Three, couldn’t possibly be the dustwalker of legend, which both surprised and saddened. He was a compelling figure and the entire plot hinged upon his actions. Three embodied the role of […]

Heaven’s Queen (Paradox # 3) by Rachel Bach (book review).

Deviana Morris is angry and with good reason. Unfortunately for her, everyone else is angry, too. Given the cataclysmic convergence of alien races pushing the galaxy toward apocalypse, it’s kind of understandable. If you haven’t read the first two books, ‘Fortune’s Pawn’ and ‘Honor’s Knight’, in the ‘Paradox’ trilogy, get busy. Rachel Bach writes good […]

The Adorned by John Tristan (book review).

The tail end of a war can be as devastating as the first strike or the most decisive battle. Soldiers become battle-fatigued, their leaders jaded and the citizens, those who work to support the soldiers, suffer privation so that they can continue to fight, are all but forgotten. Families robbed and left to flounder, children […]

Pariah # 2 by Philip Gelatt (Writer) and Brett Weldele (Artist) (comic review).

The cover of issue two of ‘Pariah’ makes me giggle. It’s so very teen-age. Inside, we have skipped forward forty-three days since the Vitros (genetically modified humans – intelligent and precocious) have been launched into orbit on a derelict space station. Between looking for more booby traps, the Vitros are scavenging local space junk. Brandon, […]

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3 by Zach Whedon (Writer) and Georges Jeanty (Artist) (comic book review).

I waited until release day for this review so I could say more than ‘hey, this is a great comic, go buy it’. Still, I prefer not to give away spoilers in my reviews, so what I have here is the briefest outline and another recommendation that you go out and buy these comics.   […]

The Sentinel (The Sundering, Book V) by Troy Denning (book review).

Set during the Era of Upheaval, ‘The Sundering’ is a multi-author event chronicling the adventures of Faerûn’s heroes, from those just Chosen to some of the Realms most enduring characters. Troy Denning’s novel, ‘The Sentinel‘, is the penultimate entry in the series. As such, it is suitably thrilling from beginning to end. Like many during […]
