Guest Review of ~ Robert Jordan – The Eye Of The World (Wheel of Time )

8.5/10 “The Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills” The Eye of the World, the first epic fantasy book in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, provided me with exactly the kind of experience I expected from it. 1. An old school fantasy feel. 2. Lots of intense descriptions of every small detail that

Review of ~ Joe Abercrombie – Before They Are Hanged (The First Law )

8.5/10 “We should forgive our enemies, but not before they are hanged” – Heinrich Heine Before They Are Hanged is Abercrombie’s second entry into the twisted and grim world of The First Law. It follows on from the three story arcs that The Blade itself stylishly led towards. Bayaz, the first of the Magi is

Guest Review of ~ Steven Erikson – Gardens Of The Moon (Malazan Book Of The Fallen )

9.5/10 – Review by Holden R Johnson (The Red Heir) “Convergence,” Tool said. “Power ever draws other power.” Why have I waited so long to read this?

8.5/10 – Will be posted to Fantasy Book Review shortly. I received an advanced copy of Age of Assassins in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Orbit Books, Nazia, and R.J.

Review of ~ Michael R. Fletcher – Fire and Flesh – A Manifest Delusions Short Story

8/10 *Quick review* Fletcher’s short story, Fire and Flesh is a standalone tale from his Manifest Delusions series. I haven’t yet read that series but it has been on my radar for a while. Fletcher advised me that this 17-page-narrative would be fine to approach before reading Beyond Redemption so, one rainy day I frequented

Review of ~ James Patterson – Cat and Mouse (Alex Cross )

7.5/10 It was amazing to return to the corrupt and thrilling world where the policeman, psychologist and all around great family man, Alex Cross tries to solve insanely complex. homicide cases. Although often extremely violent and upsetting, dealing with the darkest sides of what crimes humans can commit, I love reading this series and the
