Hands down my favorite book of Q1. Easiest read of the year. This book has a mix of camaraderie, heart, action, gore and even humor sprinkled here and there. I applaud the author for his attention to detail. This helped my imagination visualize the world that he created.

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) is one of my very favourite John Carpenter movies. I’d probably rank it slightly higher than Halloween (don’t @ me), mainly because I’m an action film fan. Made on a low budget, AoP13 packed a lot of thrills and set-pieces in its lean running time. It was set in a confined space and over a few hours. I loved the format and tightness of the screenplay (a feature of much of Carpenter’s early work), that still gave time for some decent character scenes.

All of which bri

Red Harvest Moon is a fantastic, exciting novel that sets the tone early on as a book that’ll appeal to fans of Japanese-styled stories – it isn’t afraid to wear its influences on its sleeve. What’s left is something that’s elegant, personal and a joy to read.
There’s a definite sense of theme and a strength of expectation set early on; Hurt melds inspiration from Japanese lore, culture and animation into the setting, the way the scenes are formed, poetic and deftly painted. From the way the gold

I received a digital copy of this book from the author for an honest review. I also purchased a paper copy on my own to support the author.

What I Liked:

The characters were likable and fun. Their banter back and fourth was hilarious and genuine.
The environments are described very well. You always know where you are in a village or in a forest, you always feel as though you're in the world with the characters. The way the environments a

Ren and Crimp are bandits, thieving and hunting for survival in the forest, until they come upon two men fleeing a hoard of monsters and their cruel master. What ensues is a threat of war on a small village. Ren must choose to use the skills acquired in his past to save the villagers from slaughter or continue the life of a vagabond.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story.

The author wrote eloquently, providing descriptions which painted a clear picture of the setting and events, witho

First off, I'd like to thank the author for providing me with an e-arc of this novel, in exchange for a honest review.

Red Harvest Moon is an action-packed and fast-paced story about two bandits, who set out to save a village from invading monsters. The story is filled with humour that often breaks up the frequent fighting sequences. Although I have not read anything by Miles Hurt before, upon finishing the first chapter, I knew right away that this wasn't his first written piece of work. The sto

I really enjoyed this book. It felt like a throwback to the classic fantasy novels that captured my imagination with the genre so many years ago. Miles Hurt paints a picture of a rich and detailed setting, with some features familiar to fantasy readers but made the author's own with a unique perspective in this story filled with magic, monsters, old mysterious gods, and plenty of blood.

The plot focuses on the interactions of a diverse cast of characters over what is really only a period of a cou

A great read. There are elements that are a little 'Tolkienesque' (specifically in like to the past of the high fantasy setting) although the entire story is a bit of a sandbox, taking place in a very small part of a larger world. Some elements feel a little unpolished however there is a great deal of scope for this writer to expand on both his world and his characters. I feel a few elements were a little rushed but as I said as a first fantasy book there is a lot to work on. I'll eagerly pick u ...more

The excitement doesn't let up in what seems to be a small but tantalizing episode in a broader story. It's a classic tale hearkening back to Seven Samurai, with a disgraced master swordsman finding redemption in protecting the innocent townspeople against some truly horrific threats. It's bloody fun and not to be missed! ...more
