Book Review: The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

By Jemma Jablowski / June 9, 2018

After thoroughly enjoying the first three books in the Heir Chronicles series, I was eager to jump into this one. I enjoy the magical world that Chima has built and I wanted to spend some more time in small-town Trinity, OH. This book… well… it left me with some mixed feelings. It has an entirely […]


Book Review: Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher

By Stanley Gray / June 5, 2018

Black magic slithers through Chicago. Insatiable monsters feast on the fear they create. And an unlikely wizard is foisted into the role of warden. Vampires and wizards conspire as they vie for power. A boy is on trial for his life. In Jim Butcher’s Proven Guilty, we see Harry Dresden at his finest as he navigates […]


Book Review: The Dragon Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

By Jemma Jablowski / May 31, 2018

So I have now re-read all of the books in this series that I have read thus far. I finished The Dragon Heir over the Memorial Day weekend. (Shout out to my Mom who snuggled with my baby while I indulged in reading a book by myself.) This was a fast paced war story. All […]


Book Review: The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

By Jemma Jablowski / May 28, 2018

Here is my review of the second book in the Heir Chronicles by Cinda Williams Chima. Like the first book, this is actually the third time I’ve read through this book. I think one of the things that makes these books so re-readable is the surprises. There are several fun plot twists and reveals that […]


Book Review: War Demons by Russell Newquist

By Hawkings Austin / May 27, 2018

Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): Just to make it clear – Russell runs and Silver Empire. He’s a friend and I HATE writing about friend’s books, but he asked for it. (There may have been a martial arts showdown involved.) War Demons is a solid Urban Fantasy. If you expect a hero, some monsters, […]


Book Review: Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

By Jemma Jablowski / May 16, 2018

I recently re-read The Warrior Heir by Cinda Willimas Chima, for the third time I believe. One of my favorite things about this book and this series is the re-readability. The first time I re-read it, the only thing I remembered about the book was that I had enjoyed it. And it’s not that the […]


Book Review: Monster Hunter Memoirs – Sinners & Saints

By Daniel Humphreys / May 13, 2018

  Russ reviewed the first book in this side-trilogy to Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter International series here. (I purposely avoid the word ‘prequel’ because these are not only actually good, they expand the existing universe in a worthy fashion. Come at me, Star Wars fans.) It’s fitting to view these as one big novel rather […]


Book review: Hard Magic, by Larry Correia

By Stanley Gray / May 8, 2018

Jake Sullivan, the protagonist in Hard Magic, by Larry Correia, is a tough man. He also possesses magical abilities. One of the finer qualities of this compelling tome is the fact that the magic we see is not necessarily arcane. Readers are treated to reasonable and detailed explanations of both the magic Sullivan deploys and […]


Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey

By Hawkings Austin / May 5, 2018

If you like a grim and humorous world, Sandman Slim is one of the best Urban Fantasy novels out there. I can’t see much daylight between his world and a post-apocalypse setting, but the fact that it is bleak and dark doesn’t much improve L.A. (Though the protagonist has less trouble with traffic than I […]


Book Review: Anne Rice’s The Mummy

By Richard Paolinelli / May 1, 2018

Ten years after Howard Carter unearthed King Tutankhamun out of the sands of Egypt Universal Pictures released, The Mummy. It was part of their early monster movie run in the 1930s. Perhaps the studio was cashing in on the “curse of the Pharohs” in the midst of its run of monster movies. The “curse” arose […]
