Oh this was so good. Hopeful and humorous and so fun to read, even when it veers into serious territory.

Warm, joyful, totally charming. Heavy political subplots, tied in perfectly with the main romance. Conflict handled nicely while still being authe

3.5/5


A decent if somewhat shortchanged ending to WDR's version of Empress Wu/Wu Zetian.

This covers the years of Emperor Gaozong’s early reign, his path to power over the regent and his wife Empress Wang. TEOBM is kinder to Mei/Wu than most historian

A world where soil is precious and the sea inescapable. An ethereal mix of Waterworld/The Night Circus but smarter than the first and less magical than the second. Atmospheric, melancholy, quietly desperate post-apocalypse. Quite liked but rotates PO ...more

The Defiant by Lesley Livingston

Another lively, riotous, historically-inaccurate-but-so-fun-who-cares adventure with a band of irrepressible gladiatrices. Old enemies, new allies, political cults — all brought to the fore as Fallon fights for her found family.

The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Clear rating
Unsubtle, wildly historically inaccurate, fast, actiontastic, fun, and voice-y. The plot is straightforward and easily predicted but this book is a roller coaster ride of entertainment I couldn’t help but like.

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dark fantasy filled with blood magic, power, and an endless struggle modeled after the 100 Years’ War. The worldbuilding feels slightly Slavic and could stand some expansion, as could the magic systems. A brutal, reckless read.

Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin

Clear rating
A fascinating deep dive into the ruling history of the Targaryens in Westeros for the first ~150 years of their dynasty. Not for every reader but die hard ASOIAF fans will find plenty of new information and dragons.

The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden
Rate this book
Clear rating
The conflicts of medieval Rus’ come to a head, with Vasya and Morozko at the center of the storm. Religion vs paganism, personal ambition vs social convention, Tatars vs Russians, all wound up neatly in myth and magic.

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
Rate this book
Clear rating
A bloated, repetitive, overpowered mess that finishes a series that should have ended two books ago. Some big moments score (the Thirteen!) but mostly a boring and unnecessary slog full of Maas’s inescapable writing tics.
