Grimdark Magazine Issue #17
18, Oct

I had a lot of fun with this read! I love grimdark fantasy. So naturally, when I got my hands on this issue of Grimdark Magazine, I jumped right in with both feet and was not disappointed!

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1)
03, Aug

Rating: 4.25/5 stars

I admit it. I never read Malazan. I’ve waited until now to take my first foray into Steven Erikson’s sprawling world. My first stop: Gardens of the Moon.

Bloody Rose (The Band #2)
19, Jun

Rating: 5/5 stars

Attention avid fantasy readers; it’s time for me to ask for your consideration once again. Nicholas Eames did it again. As of now, I’m calling Bloody Rose one of the best sequels of all time.

The Causal Angel (Jean le Flambeur #3)
18, Jun

Rating: 3/5 stars

My mind has been traumatized. I understood barely half of what happened in this book.

The Fractal Prince (Jean le Flambeur #2)
15, Jun

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

The Fractal Prince currently sits at the top of the most complex and difficult sci-fi book I’ve ever read; probably soon to be replaced by its sequel.

The Quantum Thief (Jean le Flambeur #1)
13, Jun

No spoonfeeding, nil exposition, bizarre, high concept, and compelling.

Garrison Girl
12, Jun

Rating: 2.5/5 stars

As a fellow Attack on Titan fans speaking to the fans of the series, I suggest you lower your expectation for this book.

Gates of Fire
11, Jun

Rating: 4.75/5 stars

One of the two best standalone books that I’ve ever read; this is truly historical fiction at its finest.

The Queen of Crows (The Sacred Throne #2)
09, Jun

Rating: 3/5 stars

Queen of Crows is hands down the most action-packed novella I’ve ever read.

Lancelot
07, Jun

Rating: 4.75/5 stars

I firmly believed that I would never experience another Arthurian novel as magnificent as Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles trilogy.  I was wrong.
