Michael McLendon is an actor living in NYC.

His favorite authors are Brandon Sanderson and Mark Lawrence. 

If he's not reading, he's making faces in front of a mirror or watching something with swords and/or explosions.

The Water Road (The Water Road Trilogy #1) 01, Dec

The Water Road by J. D. Byrne is a sociopolitical fantasy that, while well written, fails to make the wheels of its world and characters turn in a consistently believable way. 

Whispers of Flame (The Cinders of Retha #1) 01, Dec

Whispers of Flame by Louis Emery is an efficient if sparsely written fantasy adventure with good intrigue and action. 

Cardboard Castles 01, Dec

Cardboard Castles by K. L. Young is part YA drama/coming of age and part portal fantasy with successes and failures in execution.
