After being bombarded with one too many school motivational posters, I decided to “shoot for the moon” by pursuing a risky double-major in creative writing and history on the assumption that the worst-case scenario would be landing among the stars.

Striking from the beginning...from the first few chapters, there's an immediate sense of acceleration and momentum, of sitting up straighter in your seat. The story's about to take off.

This second installment is, in fact, better than the first book (

For those who enjoyed my Chrysathamere saga comes another book that has some nice similarities--a woman chafing against a sexist society and learning to fight with swords, a heat-based religious zealot antagonist (who gives us some of the books most ...more

A book recommended by a co-worker that I had somehow never managed to hear of, despite its arguably classic status. A simple story about a man raised by farmers who becomes an English teacher...but somehow, written in such a way that it feels like so ...more

A book that proves epic fantasy doesn’t need to be part of some big saga to get the job done. The book balances two compelling character arcs with a whole heap of action. Think the Princess Bride meets Kill Bill with some Game of Thrones thrown in. Y ...more

A pitch-black, macabre journey into the darkest reaches of the human psyche. Twisted, at times slightly unbelievable (the ending is a bit of a stretch), but acerbic and mesmerizing throughout, it’s less a mystery than an exploration of one of the mos ...more

Stars? Stars just feel somehow...wrong...for this book. This book exists within a bleak void where the stars don't shine.
