Review: City of Miracles

City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was a fun series. Each book was separated by a handful of years. Enough time for perspectives, aging, getting comfy with the world and it’s quirks after the blink. I’d sorely like to read a novelette of the hey-day of gods […]

Review: Bound

Bound by Benedict Jacka My rating: 4 of 5 stars Oh Alex, what fate is woven for you and your friends. These are such fun books. I needed a break in some science-fiction so I dove into the newly released Verus novel. One of those books you can just siphon down because it’s easy reading, […]

Review: Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection

Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection by Brandon Sanderson My rating: 4 of 5 stars It took me a while to work through this book. I’ve rarely read novelette compilations before and I found it difficult to just want to read end-to-end. After each minisode I had to think about it. Take a night or two […]
