Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson


With the gap between books, I had forgotten just how epic Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive is. The perfect blend of world-building, drama, character development, and cinematic action sequences. It’s more than that, though. Words of Radiance, like its predecessor, is basically three full-length novels in one. And on top of that, it is also a […]

Cold Days by Jim Butcher


This is the sequel to Changes that you’ve been waiting for. While Ghost Story was an eerie intermission after the explosive events of Changes, a clever opportunity to step back and do some character development and world building, Butcher’s latest rises back up to the same level of high-octane storytelling. It’s intense, full of action […]

Mastiff by Tamora Pierce


It seems like such a long time since I first read Terrier, the first book in Tamora Pierce’s Provost’s Dog trilogy. Oh wait, that’s because it was six years ago, back in 2006. I only hazily remember the plot of the first book, but I remember enjoying it. (It’s definitely one of Pierce’s better books.) […]

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss


The Wise Man’s Fear is the continuation of Patrick Rothfuss’s brilliant debut novel, The Name of the Wind. It’s every bit as enjoyable as the first, and it’s about three hundred pages longer, which is always a welcome improvement. Day two of Kvothe the Arcane’s chronicle of his life features his adventures among the Adem […]
