Butler to the Dark Lord by Sam Bowring

Butler to the Dark Lord by Sam Bowring

January 9, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Remember the Goosebumps Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books? You'd read them and at the end of every chapter you had to make choices: to go inside the creepy dark tunnel or not, to investigate the noise coming from downstairs or not, to split up from your best-friend to cover more ground at the haunted carnival or not. Each choice changed the story slightly and there were two or three different endings to the book, depending on the choices you made.

Sam Bowring has written a book in a similar format for ADULTS, and I think it's superb!

Butler to the Dark Lord is...

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

January 5, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Words of Radiance is absolutely breathtaking, and fantasy fans are missing out if they’re not already reading The Stormlight Archive. I love this story-world and its characters, and am excited because there are eight more books to come! I can’t wait to see what Sanderson dishes up next!

City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett

December 28, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★½

City of Stairs is an outstanding example of fantasy literature that I have enjoyed immensely. Well-plotted and vividly imagined, Bennett takes readers into a world full of magic, political strife, and (occasionally) murder.

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

December 18, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★★★

A wonderful short story that lacks none of the magic, wonder, and darkness of a GRRM book, The Ice Dragon will capture the imaginations of many readers. Don’t let its small size fool you: just because it’s short and illustrated doesn’t mean it’s a children’s book.

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

December 11, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Blood Will Follow is a solid second novel and I have enjoyed it. Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson’s books, and I think they’re perfect for fantasy readers who are looking for something new to read. Vikings, mythology, politics, and swords – what could go wrong?

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

November 27, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

This story expertly re-orients readers in the world Sanderson created in Steelheart, and gears us up for the followup which is coming out next year. If you like YA fantasy then I strongly encourage you to pick up Steelheart.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

November 13, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Auri is a gentle, beautiful, wondrous soul, and her adventure in this novella is heart-warming. I loved every page. I loved getting to know the hidden places that only she visits. I loved discovering a completely new place, naming it, and arranging it so it was just so. I loved the illustrations that made this book so sweet.
