A Keeper’s Tale
by JA Andrews

A fairy tale type of story that is likable enough, even if it is marred by some unlikable characters.

Book Reviews

Time of Contempt
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Geralt remains AWOL for much of this book, which really is a shame because he has so much potential as a main POV character. Unfortunately, Time of Contempt continues the downward slide in ratings for this series.

Blood of Elves
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Jilted storytelling and a main character who is missing for much of the book makes Blood of Elves a two rocket read for me.

Book Reviews

The Drawing of the Three
by Stephen King

A promising series fizzles out for me almost from the get-go in this second book in the Dark Tower series.

Book Reviews

The Mark of Ran
by Paul Kearney

I went into this with high hopes, but was ultimately disappointed. While I did finish The Mark of Ran, I have no desire to jump into book two.

Reiffen's Choice
by S.C. Butler

Tolkien meets Harry Potter in the first of this three book series. Reiffen's Choice harkens back to the traditional fantasy tales of old. Fun and entertaining, it's a good read, albeit not entirely original.

Book Reviews

Vick’s Vultures
by Scott Warren

Vick's Vultures barely qualifies for two rockets. Confusing writing, flat characters, and marginal storytelling couldn't salvage an otherwise promising premise.

Book Reviews

Lord Darcy
by Randall Garrett

Flat characters never instilled in me a desire to see or care if the crimes were solved. Lord Darcy is a fail for me.

Don’t Live For Your Obituary
by John Scalzi

Scalzi has the success and the genre cred to write a real book on writing. This is not that book.
