All These Worlds (Bobiverse, #3)
19, Aug

4.5/5 stars.

All These Worlds was a great and satisfying conclusion to the Bobiverse trilogy, one which I will deem as pretty darn original.

A Dragon of A Different Color (Heartstrikers, #4)
13, Aug

4.5/5 stars.

The penultimate chapter of the Heartstrikers series was all kinds of awesome.  Right now, I can safely say that this is my current favourite urban fantasy series. I just love the story and its characters, compounded with great worldbuilding and mythology.

Age of Swords (The Legends of the First Empire, #2)
11, Aug
4.5/5 stars. 

If this was a one-sentence review, all I would say is that I am so glad that I don't have to wait another full year to immerse myself in this wonderful tale again.

Spell or High Water (Magic 2.0, #2)
03, Aug

3.5/5 stars. 

Spell or High Water is a good follow-up to Off to Be the Wizard.  Admittedly, a bit of the novelty factor from the first book did start to wear off and I find this volume to be weaker but the narrative retained its enjoyable comedic tone.

The Bonehunters (Malazan Book of the Fallen, #6)
28, Jul

5/5 stars. 

The Book of the Fallen really hit its stride coming into the sixth chapter of this massive tale.

Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians (Alcatraz, #1)
26, Jul

4/5 stars.

Brandon Sanderson can write an instruction manual for a lawnmower and I’ll read it.  

Fool Moon (Dresden Files, #2)
25, Jul

3/5 stars.

Fool Moon started to show promising signs of improvement over the first book, even though most existing fans indicate that the series really only get better from Book 3 or 4 onwards. 

Off to Be the Wizard (Magic 2.0, #1)
12, Jul

4.5/5 stars.

A delightfully charming story that is a unique blend of science fiction and fantasy, Off to Be the Wizard will satisfy geeks who secretly (or not-so-secretly) wish they can be a wizard. I personally found it brilliant in its simplicity and originality.

The Grey Bastards (The Grey Bastards, #1)
05, Jul

4.5/5 stars. 

The Grey Bastards is a worthy winner of last year’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off.  An original tale of valour, loyalty and friendship told from the perspective of half-breeds between humans and orcs, it was well-written and entertaining with loads of vulgarity.
