The Privilege of the Sword
by Ellen Kushner

Very well written but The Privilege of the Sword just didn't give me enough to truly enjoy it. Still, it has some moments where it shines so I'm giving it three rockets.

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

Quietus
by Tristan Palmgren

A story that begins with great promise perhaps becomes a bit too complex for its own good, but ultimately entertains and deserves your consideration.

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 Vagrant
by Peter Newman

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?

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.

Book Reviews

Tusk
by Nathan M. Hurst

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.

Horizon
by Lois McMaster Bujold

Bujold, working her usual writing magic in this final book in The Sharing Knife series, brings everything full circle in a satisfying and successful way.

The Last Wish
by Andrzej Sapkowski

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.
