A fun adventure full of colorful characters, intrigue, magic, and, of course, the King's Blades.

Sweet Silver Blues
by Glen Cook

Led me down such a herky-jerky path that the only thing clear to me was that I was not going to continue with the series.

Movie Reviews

Black Panther

Visually stunning, exceptional characters, great action, and more humor than I was expecting. I don’t know what else to say about Black Panther but to go see it.

Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues
by J.M. Martin (editor)

A 4 rocket rating gets marked down to 3 due to the excessive typos. Otherwise, Blackguards is a rich collection of dastardly tales full of rogues, thieves, and assassins.

Legacy
by Lois McMaster Bujold

This second novel in Bujold's Sharing Knife series brings to a close events set in motion in Beguilement. A slow and steady pace (much like a Robin Hobb novel) ensures a long, enjoyable read as Bujold always impresses.
