Book Review: A Darkness Absolute

City of the Lost is the first in this new series by Kelley Armstrong. But I didn't know that at the time and you don't really need to read these in order. This isn't a series that hinges on that. Each is stand-alone. But for the relationships going on in the town... I'd like to have… Continue reading Book Review: A Darkness Absolute

Review: The Outsorcerer’s Apprentice

Tom Holt is the author of Outsorcerer's Apprentice. A happy workforce, it is said, is a productive workforce. Mmmm. Try telling that to an army of belligerent goblins. Or the Big Bad Wolf. Or a professional dragonslayer. Who is looking after their well-being?

Book Review: The God Argument

I just finished The God Argument: The Case Against Religion and for Humanism by A.C. Grayling and it was quite enjoyable to me. Keep in mind I am a philosophical agnostic who enjoys this sort of discussion but leans strongly towards atheism. It is just that sort of book I can enjoy. Thinking about religion and… Continue reading Book Review: The God Argument


Book Review: Kate Elliott’s Cold Magic

Kate Elliott is a great writer to begin with.  This new series starting with Cold Magic (The Spiritwalker Trilogy) was better than I'd thought it would be.  Now I thought it would be good because of the author, but it surpassed expectations.  First of all, it is written in first person but has the feel… Continue reading Book Review: Kate Elliott’s Cold Magic


Book Review: Chosen An Alex Verus Novel By Benedict Jacka

Chosen (Alex Verus) If you rate a novel based on how you read it so intently you read it all night and finished in the morning then it is a great book. Although I was in a book deprivation state when I got it, so I might have consumed it simply because I was in… Continue reading Book Review: Chosen An Alex Verus Novel By Benedict Jacka
