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.
C. T. Phipps' Lucifer's Star is a well executed espionage thriller with great sci-fi action anchored by the magnetic Cassius Mass.
Anthony Ryan is responsible for one of my favorite books of all time, Blood Song. It's saying something that I feel like his new series, although different in tone, can stand along side it.
