Book Review :: A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin

A Feast for Crows is the fourth title in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice & Fire series (aka The Game of Thrones). It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: The Omen Machine by Terry Goodkind

Although Terry Goodkind said he wouldn’t be writing any more Sword of Truth books, he sort of slipped up with The Law of Nines. I’m guessing that book received a lukewarm review and thus The Omen Machine: A Richard and… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

The second book in the Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is Beautiful Darkness, which I read back in April of this year (oops). It’s a great second novel (published in 2010); a compelling young adult fantasy series… Continue Reading →

Book Reviews :: Shiver, Linger, & Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Review :: A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

And so A Song of Ice and Fire series continues with the third installment, A Storm of Swords. I finished this book in late August / early September and—without going bit by bit through the novel—let’s just say I enjoyed… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

A Clash of Kings is the second book ins George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series (aka The Game of Thrones). After becoming absorbed in the first book, A Game of Thrones, I picked up a copy… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

I picked up this book when I heard about the series HBO was producing and the guy at the till said “your friends won’t see you for weeks.” Confused, I asked why. “You’ll need to catch up on the entire… Continue Reading →
