Ship Of Magic (The Liveship Traders book 1) by Robin Hobb (book review).

  ‘Ship Of Magic’ by Robin Hobb has been sitting on my to-be-read shelf for about seven years. Its eight-hundred or so pages turned my eye a few times, as did the knowledge that ‘The Liveship Traders’ trilogy wouldn’t be revisiting Fitz from ‘The Farseer’ trilogy. I still wanted to read it, though, and I’m […]

The sleepy village he finds himself in appears to be stuck in the medieval age, but for certain marvels. This ‘magic’, apportioned by a substance known as […]

The Savior (Raj Whitehall #10) by Tony Daniel and David Drake (book review).

Many of us talk to ourselves and consider ourselves lucky if the voices in our head don’t talk back. Major Abel Dashian relies on the fact his voices will talk back, offering information, projection, strategy and advice. His voices have names, too. Center is a computer intelligence and Raj Whitehall is a stored personality. Together, […]

Trial By Fire (Tales Of The Terran Republic book 2) by Charles E. Gannon (book review).

‘Trial By Fire’ is a big book. Six hundred and forty pages big. It’s chewy and complicated. Somewhere near the end, I decided the plot was something like a game of chess. Every page and every point of view represented a move and might hide a clue to next six moves planned by that player. […]

The Sheltered City by John Tristan (book review).

Once again, John Tristan has created a unique and compelling world. The deeper into ‘The Sheltered City’ I got, the more I wanted to know. Why where they living inside what seemed to be a large dome sheltered by an enormous living tree? Where the dragons outside real or allegorical? What is the halfdeath and […]

The Circuit: Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno (book review).

‘The Circuit: Executor Rising’ by Rhett C. Bruno is my kind of book. Earth is dead (yay, apocalypse!) and humanity has taken to the stars. We haven’t gotten far. Still within our Solar System, humanity inhabits a string of Solar-Ark transports that continually travel what is known as the Kepler Circuit. Resources are mined and […]

Half A King (Shattered Sea book # 1) by Joe Abercrombie (book review).

I was pretty sure I’d like ‘Half A King’. My only concern was that it might be bloated in the way of epic fantasy, presenting me with a lot of words that may or may not add up to a considerable story. Not that I suspected Joe Abercrombie might deliver anything like that, but I […]
