The Book of Life: A Novel

"The Book of Life," like its predecessors, is ultimately grounded in the abiding love of two creatures the world tries to keep apart,


The Book of Life: A Novel

When done well, as it is here, this sort of fiction provides characters who are recognizably human in their desires and actions even if most of them are creatures with supernatural powers.


Full Fathom Five

Readers curious about Gladstone’s work and universe should not start with Full Fathom Five to really get the full experience of what the author does here.


The Book of Life: A Novel

The Book of Life acts mostly as a family reunion for those longtime readers who have followed the mystery of Ashmole 782 since the beginning.


Alias Hook

The ending and the price that Hook and Stella must pay in order to leave Neverland might annoy or anger some. But it does give them a fresh start while both seemed to have retained at least the valuable lessons learned if not how they learned them.


The Queen of the Tearling

There is so much to love about Erika Johansen’s novel and very little to dislike. Her characters are realistic, mysterious, and even fun.


The Queen of the Tearling

Overall, I did not find the engrossing fantasy I was looking for in The Queen of the Tearling, but it deserves better than to be lauded only as a Frankenstein product of popular literature.


Alias Hook

Alias Hook is a fun and clever follow up to the classic tale, one I think the kid in all of us can appreciate.


A Plunder of Souls

Series fans will want to investigate, but the gloss is definitely off.


The High Druid's Blade: The Defenders of Shannara

The High Druid’s Blade is an easy and enjoyable read, not too taxing, and as an entry point for Shannara I felt completely comfortable in the world despite the mentioning of events that clearly relate to previous novels.


The Shadow Throne

It is a novel that, a week after finishing it, still has me thinking strongly about it, realizing upon reflection how very good it was/is, and anticipating the third book in the series.


The Golem and the Jinni

The plot is one that kept me guessing and believe me, this is a good thing.


Prince of Fools

One of my favourite reads so far this year and highly recommended.


Better Homes and Hauntings

Fun, sweet, spooky and sexy.


Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary

This is extraordinary work, particularly if you have any interest at all in Beowulf and a study of all that can be found and debated about in this legendary poem.


Child of a Hidden Sea

This was a solid, enjoyable book, entirely appreciable on its own while setting up interesting hooks for future instalments.


Tower Lord

Tower Lord is a loud proclamation that Anthony Ryan is David Gemmell’s natural successor and epic fantasy’s best British talent.


Rogues
Kirkus Reviews : Rogues (June 17, 2014)

Rambunctious, rowdy and occasionally R-rated: a worthy entertainment, without a dud in the bunch, that easily moves from swords and sorcery to hard-boiled Chandler-esque.


Prince of Fools

It’s a good tale, too, moving quickly from one scene to the other while scarcely pausing for breath.


Queen of the Dark Things

High quality urban fantasy is always hard to find and Cargill has proven that he can deliver time and time again.
