Member Since
January 2014


Raised in the swamps and pine forests of East Texas, Seth Skorkowsky gravitated to the darker sides of fantasy, preferring horror and pulp heroes over knights in shining armor.

His debut novel, Dämoren, was published in 2014 as book #1 in the Valducan series; it was followed by Hounacier in 2015, and Ibenus in 2016. Seth has also released two sword-and-sorcery rogue collections with his Tales of the Black Raven series.

When not writing, Seth enjoys cheesy movies, tabletop role-playing games, making YouTube videos, and traveling the world with his wife.

I really enjoyed Book 1. I mostly enjoyed Book 2. I just didn't care for Book 3.
We pick up shortly after Book 2, with the repercussions of the ending playing out and pushing the plot. The problem is that I just didn't care any more.

Still silly. Still enjoyable. Still too many puns.

Book 2 continues the adventure, expanding the world and characters. I didn't enjoy it as much as Book 1 for a couple reasons. First, the in-depth mechanics of the RPG leveling system began dragging

“What’s this one?” Allan said, holding up a blocky pistol. “Glock,” Matt answered. Allan flipped it over. “How big is the clip for it?” “Magazine,” Matt corrected. “They always call it a clip on the telly.” “So?
