A great fantasy novel – engaging characters, an interesting plot, and most importantly, a fascinating world with unique magic. One of the first books in a long time that I spent a Saturday night reading.

In truth, I much preferred the second “book” in the set - The Assumption of the Rogues and Rascals. While I enjoy love poetry/prose, I have trouble empathizing with someone who is in love with a cheater, as I very much doubt the feeling is truly reci ...more

The Forge of God by Greg Bear

An interesting if dated hard sci-fi. While it is fun to read novels that are set in what was the future to the writer (in this case 1996) and chuckle at the predictions, this one could easily be set today if for a few changes (such as the USSR and th ...more

Our Ecstatic Days by Steve Erickson

This is a beautiful novel. Not just the prose, but the concepts, the connections, and the descriptions of loss and fear.

So much fun! Where the last Torin Kerr novel was an interesting military sci-fi, this one was more of a mystery. It reminded me a lot of Alien, but less sinister. There were new characters to enjoy with fun personalities, an intriguing mystery, some ...more

Good old Value Village dropping this gem in my lap! I love science fiction military novels where humans are allied with alien races. I love the dynamic between the groups as they have to live and fight together. The action, despite how great Huff is ...more

An utterly surprising novel that starts off as a strange dystopian almost-farce and grows into speculation on the ever-growing divide between the rich and poor, with a hyperbolic (but not entirely unrealistic) depiction of what life could be like if ...more
