4.5/5 stars

A severely underrated epic fantasy debut.

The Forgetting Moon is Brian Lee Durfee’s debut and it has been published for almost three years now. Honestly, it’s quite sinful

The Light Brigade is my first sci-fi read of the year (shocking, I know) and it’s also the first time I read Kameron Hurley’s book; I assure you it won’t be the last.

“My sense of being, my identity, whatever you want to call it, it doesn't reside in my parts. It lives in my past, and in the continuity of my present thoughts, and in my hopes for the future. I'm more afraid of losing a memory than a limb.”
Josiah Bancroft, The Hod King

Robert Jackson Bennett
“All things have a value. Sometimes the value is paid in coin. Other times, it is paid in time and sweat. And finally, sometimes it is paid in blood.

Humanity seems most eager to use this latter currency. And we never note how much of it we’re spending, unless it happens to be our own.”
Robert Jackson Bennett, Foundryside

Devin Madson
“To act in retribution brings only suffering.”
Devin Madson, We Ride the Storm

Brian Staveley
“Our human flesh is better than most things at keeping pace with its own decay, and yet it takes so little—a tiny knife dragged across the windpipe, a dropped roof tile, a puddle three inches deep—to unmake a man or woman. It’s amazing, given everything’s fragility, that we don’t live in a smashed world, all order and structure utterly undone, the whole land heaped with bone, charred wood, carelessly shattered glass. It amazes me sometimes that anything is still standing.”
Brian Staveley, Skullsworn

“Lesson number four. Sometimes those who seek to help you are the worst enemies of all.”
