Review of The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase)

Review of The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase)

This is a fun, well written book in the same spirit as Percy Jackson. I thought some of the humor and jokes were a bit over-the-top and felt flat, compared to those in Percy Jackson series. But having a silly take on Norse mythology is always a nice change of… Read more »

Review of VALIS

It’s a long-winded rambling of an insane person with little to not plot. Even the religious ideas are all over the place with no cohesion. There isn’t much story here, and certainly nothing of any entertainment or joy. It’s a dark journey into madness. Audiobook narration: The narrator did a… Read more »

Review of Dark Space: Revenge

In Dark Space: Revenge, the Sythians have come to dark space to conquer humanity. Meanwhile, Admiral Heston sends a mission to get help from the Avalonians. The book got to a very, very slow start.
