Review: Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson

by Jon Snow

(Details for giveaway below review) I love Mistborn. I’ve read the trilogy and I’ve listened to it in Audiobook format. There are not many books I have done this for. I love the magic system and it only got more complex as the story continued. When Alloy of Law came out (unexpectedly) we got more […]

Review: An Apprentice to Elves

by Jon Snow

I had not heard of this series prior to receiving “An Apprentice to Elves,” but this book stands on its own.  Our title character is Alfgyfa, a young girl who has been sent to live with the svartalfar (basically dark elves).  The svartalfar are excellent craftspeople and Alfgyfa is apprenticed to a metalsmith named Tin […]

Review: The Left Hand Way by Tom Doyle

by Jon Snow

You would want to read the first book in the series (American Craftsmen) before moving on to The Left Hand Way (the plot picks up where the last one left off, and most of the major characters return).  But, if you enjoyed the first book, you will probably also enjoy this one. This is a very […]

Win a copy of Half a King by Joe Abercrombie

Half a King is Job Abercrombie’s latest book. He’s know for gritty and gore with lovable characters that you love to hate, but can’t.

Giveaway: American Craftsmen by Tom Doyle

by Ben

Yesterday we posted a review of American Craftsmen by Tom Doyle. It’s an entertaining urban/military fantasy read. The magic system is about changing odds to your favour and there is a bit of historical reference in there as well. You can win a copy of this book simply by commenting on this post or commenting […]

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

by Ben

Steelheart is the most enjoyable book I’ve read this year and it is Sanderson’s best stand alone book he has to date (Elantris, The Rithmatist, Warbreaker). That’s right I said it. Look, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s Sanderson’s best book, the most intriguing, the best magic system or most unique. Simply, it […]

The bastards are back. And they’re pissed off. Pissed off with being used, manipulated, poisoned, lied to and beaten to within an inch of their lives. So this time they’re looking to play on their terms and planning on winning on the greatest stage of all – the political arena of Karthain. After a well-publicised […]
