Review of Resolution of the Marked

Review of Resolution of the Marked

This fourth and final book of the Marked series is amazing, and really a step up from the prior book. The action is pretty intense, the characters are strong and varied, and Qaede deepens his evil and depravity. I never really felt myself get bored and I was always wondering… Read more »

Review of The Swampling King by Ben Dobson

Review of The Swampling King by Ben Dobson

This book kept my attention and was a good page turner, but it was really, really, really long. The main characters (Zerill and Josen) are well done and very deep, but I could have used a bit more back story on both. The world building was pretty imaginative, but there… Read more »

Review of Seeds of Foreverland

Review of Seeds of Foreverland

This short story follows the childhood of Harold, the main villain in the Annihilation of Foreverland. It is a great little novella showing the messed-up mind of a psychopath, and the back story to how the virtual world/brain technology was created. It was a good page-turner.
