Bleeding Violet
3.62
Would give a 3.5 rating if I could. This is a bizarre, fascinating book that I read mostly because of its being chosen as the title for the African-Am...more

Among the Hidden (Shadow Children, #1)
3.96
I was sort of disappointed by this - I think I was expecting too much. It really didn't grab me until the last 30 pages or so. Nevertheless, I think I...more

(I would have given this one 4 1/2 stars if that was an option.)

A lot of people are showing varying degrees of dislike/hatred for the unreliable narra...more

The Sorcerer in the North (Ranger's Apprentice, #6)
4.22
I think I understand now why books 3-5 have been unable to match the first two. It's not so much the plot, nor the character development, nor the writ...more

The Demon's Lexicon (The Demon's Lexicon, #1)
3.79
I read/skimmed this one so that I could review the 3rd book in the trilogy and not be clueless as to what is going on. Definitely one I will be recomm...more

Turner's books in the Queen's Thief series all have remarkably high ratings, but King has the highest. When I first began reading, I was a bit dubious...more

The Demon's Covenant (The Demon's Lexicon, #2)

Better than the first in many ways, and one of the best middle books in a trilogy I've read in quite a while. Doesn't drag the way some middle/2nd boo...more

The Siege of Macindaw (Ranger's Apprentice, #6)

This may have been the best of the series since book 2, with a great fast-moving plot, but I am really growing tired of Flanagan's style of overexplai...more

The second book in the series was, thankfully, not at all a letdown. These gentlemen really know how to write entertaining, funny, intelligent, extrem...more

Midwinterblood
3.75
Haunting and engrossing. One of the best books I've read in a long, long time, but not for the faint of heart.

The Odyssey
3.87
An impressive and very readable graphic novelization of Homer's epic. Very, very long... but what was I expecting?

Probably my favorite of the series; there's great humor as always, and the action is pretty much nonstop. I liked the ending; simple but satisfying. S...more

The Queen of Attolia (The Queen's Thief, #2)

I still think Queen is a shade better than The Thief, not quite as awe-inspiring as King or CoK. The characters - Gen, Attolia, Eddis - are just magni...more

Inkdeath (Inkworld, #3)

An extremely dense read at times (probably due to the often-awkward translation from German), this is still a great ending to an excellent series. One...more
