A self-professed geek and proud of it, I started reading at a tender age and never really stopped until work got in the way for several years.  I regained my voracious appetite for books a few years back and then started to enjoy writing down my thoughts.  I am more of an emotional/instinctual rather than a critical reader. 

Aside from reading, I enjoy outdoor sports (running, hiking, cycling, an occasional frisbee game), photography and travelling.

King of Ashes (The Firemane Saga, #1) 29, Mar

Feist is back in form as King of Ashes establishes a promising and solid foundation for a completely new saga away from the massive Riftwar Cycle multi-series.

A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1) 24, Mar

4/5 stars.

A Wizard of Earthsea is an unusually enchanting classic that is simple in form and yet significant in substance.

The Armored Saint (The Sacred Throne, #1) 09, Mar

4.5/5 stars.

A superbly well-crafted gritty story with memorable characters, tight pacing and vivid prose in just over 200 pages, The Armored Saint is one of the best novellas I've ever read.
