Four and Twenty Blackbirds
by Cherie Priest

An enjoyable read that could have used something more to elevate it.

Book Reviews

Claus: Legend of the Fat Man

An alternative take on the Father of Christmas that ultimately comes across as droll and uninteresting.

Book Reviews

Smoke Eaters
by Sean Grigsby

A very cool premise that fails in the execution step. It's an enjoyable, albeit forgettable, read.

Baptism of Fire
by Andrzej Sapkowski

The best book in the series so far, Baptism of Fire is marked by a series of notable events and characters who keep the pace moving and the reader's interest as Geralt (finally) takes center stage.

Book Reviews

Through Wolf's Eyes
by Jane Lindskold

Don't let the dated cover fool you. This is an excellent read with some truly intriguing characters.

Book Reviews

Honour of the Grave
by Robin Laws

Bizarre character behavior was so jarring I couldn't get through this one.

Book Reviews

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

The Outstretched Shadow
by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

A promising start that fizzled out and ultimately led to me putting this one down.

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.
