The Steel Remains

Got my 10 yr-old friend to read the series and he's enjoying them as much as I did. He read book 2 over one week during winter vacation! We're having ...more

The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1)

I liked it a lot. It's very Dan Brown for kids, bouncing around between real historical sites, but always with an imaginative twist. The author really ...more

The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)

It started off seeming simple, a typical high fantasy novel. The easy style is reminiscent of Brandon Sanderson; like in his books, the characters fel ...more

Right Hand Magic (Golgotham, #1)

It wasn't awful, but it wasn't good either. It was an easy read as I wasn't terribly bored, but there wasn't anything exciting either. It's very shall ...more

Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf  Volume 1

Why does Bran look like that? He isn't some big-headed built hunk. He's everyman, average young guy, no one would believe to look at him that he's pow ...more

Death's Daughter (Calliope Reaper-Jones, #1)

It's really a 2.5, but I just couldn't give it my average/3 rating. The main character is a wise-ass, but not clever. As much as I hate to do Buffy co ...more

Really a 3.5, but definately not a 4. It has all of the right urban fantasy elements, almost a checklist. Tough chick, tough decisions, wacky friends, ...more
