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.
Cardboard Castles by K. L. Young is part YA drama/coming of age and part portal fantasy with successes and failures in execution.
Malice by John Gwynne is the perfect start to an epic fantasy- a coming of age hook, compelling characters and worldbuilding, a large cast; and it’s all bound together with wisdom and heart.
Proven Guilty is a giant leap forward in the middle of this epic heroic noir that forces our titular hero to reckon with demons(both literal and metaphorical) of his past, present, and future.
