Review Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

X-Men meets The Running Man. (If you don’t know what The Running Man is, you should quickly go and familiarise yourself with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s back catalogue. Do it. Do it now!)   Superhero City: Ghoul is a fascinating look at superheroes in a corporate, capitalist America gone mad. It’s a world that’s all about the … Read moreReview Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

Review Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett

So after checking out the first Fabius Bile book in the 40k catalogue, I decided I wanted to try some others, and the Horus Heresy saga has always been interesting to me. So I asked a few friends and they came up with a reading list, somewhat predictably starting with book 1. This is the … Read moreReview Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett

Review Blog – The Last Mortal Bond by Brian Staveley

This is one of those books where the standard 5 star scale doesn’t really work. It sits firmly between 3 and 4 stars for me. It’s taken me a long time to get back to finishing this book, not because it’s bad, but because I had a falling out with audiobooks last year, and have … Read moreReview Blog – The Last Mortal Bond by Brian Staveley

Review Blog – Pilgrimage to Skara by Jonathan Pembroke

I’ve let this one sit for a bit, partly to decide on my rating and partly because I’m a terrible procrastinator. Skara (as I shall be calling it) is about Pell Wendt, a retired pathfinder. This basically means he leads people with magical potential into the outlands beyond the realm of civilisation’s protection. There are … Read moreReview Blog – Pilgrimage to Skara by Jonathan Pembroke

Review Blog – Ravencry by Ed McDonald

Well, I absolutely loved Blackwing. So much so I actually cheated my own rating system to give it the 5 stars it deserved. It still remains the only book I have done that for. So when Ravencry released I jumped straight on it, expecting another wild and wonderful ride full of despair, misery, nihilism, and … Read moreReview Blog – Ravencry by Ed McDonald

Review Blog – Fabius Bile: Primogenitor by Joshua Reynolds

This book is my very first foray into the literary world of the 40k universe. I’ve played a bit of tabletop in my youth, and enjoyed both the Spacehulk, and Dawn of War video games, but I’ve never stepped into the literature because… well, I expected it to be trash. Part of this is baseless … Read moreReview Blog – Fabius Bile: Primogenitor by Joshua Reynolds

Review Blog – Darkstorm by M.L. Spencer

Time for a little disclaimer. It is, unfortunately, impossible to really separate the narrator from the words when reviewing an audiobook. But I have tried. Darkstorm is a prequel of sorts to M L Spencer’s Rhenwars Saga. The author told me this when I started the book, and pointed out that it’s probably not the … Read moreReview Blog – Darkstorm by M.L.

Review Blog – Paternus by Dyrk Ashton

I’m fairly certain Dyrk Ashton is the nicest guy in the fantasy genre. I met him last year at a convention and he handed me a signed copy of Paternus. I graciously accepted, knowing full well it would be a while before I managed to get around to reading it. And now I have, and … Read moreReview Blog – Paternus by Dyrk Ashton

Guest Blog – The Illusions of Dialogue by Jesse Teller

The Illusions of Dialogue by Jesse Teller I came from a family of storytellers, I mean, gifted storytellers. They could pick you up and lift you into a tale like none other I have ever known. I apprenticed under them, and it made me the writer I am. I have been telling stories all my … Read moreGuest Blog – The Illusions of Dialogue by Jesse Teller
