Review: The Dragon Mistress: Book 2 (Eburosi Chronicles #9) by R.A. Steffan

I finished the first installment of The Dragon Mistress on a Friday night, right before I was supposed to play video games with my spouse and a friend. Instead, I devoured the next installment in a single evening while they played without me. I regret nothing. The dragons play a larger role in this story, as […]

Review: The Lion Mistress (Eburosi Chronicles #5-#7) by R.A. Steffan

Because of how much I enjoyed each installment of The Horse Mistress, my first experience with the world of the Eburosi Chronicles, I went ahead and bought the full collection of the next adventure as one book. I have no regrets about that decision. This world gave me one of the most intense book hangovers of […]

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 4 (Eburosi Chronicles #4) by R.A. Steffan

Now that our three heroes are in a solid relationship, it was time to shake things up a bit. It would have been easy for the author to focus on a more character-driven story, but I love how they don’t let the readers forget that war is coming. Times are changing, and our heroes have […]

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 3 (Eburosi Chronicles #3) by R.A. Steffan

When their rock shatters, Carivel and Senovo have to work together to put Andoc back together again. Their relationship arc goes through another set of trials, just enough to make a reader worried while also keeping faith that everything will work out for the best.

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 2 (Eburosi Chronicles #2) by R.A. Steffan

The epic fantasy world of Eburosi deepens, along with the relationship between Carivel, Senovo, and Andoc, in this second installment of The Horse Mistress. Many of the quibbles I had about the first book are addressed here, such as external conflicts that stand in the way of their relationship and more extensive world-building.

Review: Ragnarok Unwound by Kristin Jacques

Disclaimer: I received an advanced electronic copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This novel starts with a bang and hooks you right from the start. Despite what the title implies, this is a story about more than just Norse mythology. It’s a world where every pantheon of gods […]

Review: Shattering the Ley (Erenthrall #1) by Joshua Palmatier

This is one of those books that I snagged at a convention after meeting the author that then sat on my “to be read” shelf for an embarrassing amount of time. When I saw the final book in the trilogy had been released, I figured it was long past time to dive in. “Diving in” […]

Review: GENRENAUTS: SEASON ONE by Michael R. Underwood

Sometimes, you find a published story that incorporates major elements of an idea you had once upon a time and you’re disappointed, because now it’s already “taken.” But other times, you stumble across a story that’s very similar to a vague idea you had back in high school and you’re thrilled, because someone has already […]

Review: THE DYING OF THE GOLDEN DAY (Heartfriends Trilogy #1) by Carrie Gessner

Disclaimer: I attended the same graduate program as the author and consider her a friend; however, I purchased my hardcopy version of this novel for full price. I spend a lot of time reading urban fantasy these days, so it had been a while since I dove into a more traditional epic fantasy. Starting this […]

Review: A WIZARD’S FORGE (Woern Saga #1) by A.M. Justice

Disclaimer: I received a free ebook of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. It’s no surprise that I was drawn to this book immediately, considering it’s fusion of fantasy and science-fiction elements, it’s excellent world-building, and its awesome protagonist named Vic (short for Victoria). But I’ve been burned by free […]
