It's been far too long since I've had the time to update this blog. One of the stranger things I've noted about growing older and busier, with teenagers in the house, is that it's entirely possible to feel like you've blinked your eyes and six months have passed. I'll try to do better in updating things here.

As it's been such a long time, here are some updates from my life, in no particular ord... Read more of this blog post »

This was an enjoyable romp, with moments of humor - and some genuine moments of human tenderness - interspersed with fights against monsters both mundane and unique. The main characters were well drawn and easy to relate to, and the pacing was top no...more

Rate this book

So, after a lot of really unexplainable resistance, I broke down and read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. John Green is sort of the Nicholas Sparks for young adult readers, though there appears to be plenty of adult fans, too. I think what makes this title (...more

I read this title, along with SHADOW'S EDGE and BEYOND THE SHADOWS, in one go. I enjoyed all three titles, and if I have any complaint at all, it's that there was the occasional lapse in the narrative that seemed muddy to me. Really a non-complaint t...more

I just finished reading both this title, and the sequel, KING OF THORNS, and found myself comparing them to Glen Cook and Joe Abercrombie - both of whom I enjoyed quite a lot. Here's the difference: Lawrence is a much smoother stylist than Cook, and...more

I can't properly explain it, but it's almost like Richard Kadrey took some early Heart songs (Crazy on You, Magic Man, and Barracuda all leap to mind) and mixed them with a Jim Butcher sense of pacing and a Simon Green approach to character to come u...more

This is one of those books that I kept meaning to read and never quite got to until recently. There are some really interesting style choices here, and I'll likely read at least a couple more in the series to find out if the author utilizes the same...more
