The Passage (The Passage, #1)

Rating: 3/5 Stars


When it comes to Science Fiction or Fantasy that has a literary aspect to it, I usually have to step back & ask myself the following question:

City of Stairs (The Divine Cities, #1)
04, Apr

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

City of Stairs is, at its heart, a murder mystery, with a hull of geopolitical strife & fueled by a peculiar magic that isn't totally understood even by the story's main characters. The perfect recipe for a story that had me up past my bed time many nights in a row.

This is a short, self-published Fantasy title following Rosalyn De Boswel after an encounter with mysterious man on the road sets her on a path she never could have foreseen.

I Am Legend
07, Mar

Rating: 3/5 Stars

Honestly, this is a tough book to review.
