- Penric’s Fox by Lois McMaster Bujold (309 views)
This next installment in the Penric and Desdemona series goes a little deeper than previous stories, but not deep enough to rise above a three rocket rating. Still, it's a good read and a nice addition to the ongoing saga.
- Penric’s Mission by Lois McMaster Bujold (294 views)
Penric's Mission lifts the main character to new heights in terms of his confidence and maturity. This is the Penric I've been waiting for and the one which makes this fourth book in the series a must read.
- Sky of Swords by Dave Duncan (285 views)
A fun read with an ending that didn't quite satisfy. However, Duncan delights anyway with a likeable main character and enough twists to keep things interesting.
- Master Assassins by Robert V.S. Redick (257 views)
Master Assassins is probably a good first book in what may be a very intriguing series, but I’ll never know for sure since it was a DNF for me.
- Sly Mongoose by Tobias Buckell (252 views)
Sly Mongoose by Tobias Buckell is a fast-paced science fiction novel that centers around Pepper, an elite soldier whose primary duty is the preservation of the human race (kicking ass is his other priority). A fun read that I highly recommend.
- Passage by Lois McMaster Bujold (232 views)
Passage continues a wonderful series but ultimately its story is fairly singular in purpose. If the author had added something more I think this book would have really stood out amongst the others in the series.
- The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (216 views)
The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie is a gritty, in-your-face, rollicking good time of a story. Full of deeply thought out, colorful characters, there's something for every fan of the fantasy genre here.
- The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski (204 views)
This first installment in the Witcher series didn't knock me off my feet, but it did suprise me with the depth of some of the stories. It's a good read and the start of something hopefully really good.
- Tusk by Nathan M. Hurst (176 views)
The combination of the writing, characters, and multiple storylines all come together to present a science fiction novel that will intrigue and draw you in.
- The Vagrant by Peter Newman (150 views)
The Vagrant is a literary work that is bold, dismal, groundbreaking, and genre defying all at once. It's worth a read for its uniqueness alone. Throw in a knight, a baby, and a goat as traveling companions and what are you waiting for?
