Review: Calamity by Brandon Sanderson

by Jon Snow

Calamity is the final book in the Reckoners series, where a portion of ordinary humans have been granted super powers after an event called Calamity. The problem is, the more these humans with powers (Epics) use their powers, they feel more hatred and become evil (Think Darkside/Darth Vader).   As a series as a whole, […]

Best Fantasy Reads of 2013

by Ben

It really doesn’t matter what you do with these kinds of lists, you can’t please everyone and that certainly isn’t our aim. A couple of readers thought our Worst list was terrible.

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 […]

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

by Ben

Steelheart is Brandon Sanderson’s newest book. Once again, it’s a good one. It’s different from what we’re used to though.

Steelheart takes place in […]

Upcoming Books in September

    Someone reminded me how slack I was, so here is a short version. A couple of decent ones. I’ll promise to make a more in depth one for the following month! Steelheart by Sanderson is his THIRD book out this year, following A Memory of Light and The Rithmatist. The Rithmatist was a good […]

Preview: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

by Ben

I’m always excited when Brandon Sanderon produces something new, it never seems long before he has something out. Steelheart is perhaps not something every fantasy reader would pick up. Urban Fantasy at best, it is about superhumans called Epics who rule the world, yet they rule it with an iron fist. A small group of […]
