Classic fantasy that reminds me of Lord of the Rings. Such a huge world to dive into.

This was a good story, although many of the characters seemed to have the same voice. But this served to show that the story is told from the authors perspective.

Mutineer's Moon by David Weber
"A solid action packed military fiction but this part is NOT a space-opera. Yes, the first two chapters happen around earth, but the moon is the furthest point of flight. The rest of the book is happening on Earth. I don't know why I found the last..." Read more of this review »

Tina Hi Tony- Thanks for the invite. If you like Weber's Honor Harrington series I highly recommend his stand alone book Path of the Fury (if you haven't already read it) or, the expanded version of it In Fury Born (which adds a 400 page prequel to the original).


message 10: by Aloha

Aloha Hi Tony. Thank you for the invite and reading my review. I agree that the movie diverged greatly from the book. Both are interesting, though. I guess if one of your books turned into a movie, you'll know what to expect. :o)


Nicole Hi, Tony. Thanks for the friend request. And thank you for your service.

Tabitha Why hello new friend! *cackles madly*


Faye Thanks for the friend request..... Feel free to dig through my shelves for ideas on books, my tastes vary widely. I love Peter F Hamilton for my science fiction fix, will re read those till I die.


message 5: by Lisa

Lisa Reads & Reviews Thank you for the friendly request. You would know better than I would, but Shards of Honour struck me as a warrior's book. Very vivid, indeed. I look forward to exchanging book recommendations and other general book talk with you.


Angela Hi Tony, thanks for the friend request. I've not read 'The Foundation' but it sounds like my type of thing.


message 3: by Scott

Scott Holstad Hi Tony. Thanks for your comment and the friend request. I'll look forward to your updates. (I love Frederik Pohl too. I'm reading two of his books right now....)

Cheers!
Scott


Tracey Thanks for the friend request!


Rollie Thanks for the add. :)
