Review of Dragon’s Fire by Tiger Hebert

10/10 Stars

 

Epic story, great world, amazing book!

What a great book!

I particularly like that the orcs are good guys for a change.

The cast of characters, different peoples, and the way they interact are all intricately woven together in a masterful story arc that combines action, adventure, and of course a world in peril.

The evil creatures are nasty, and the bad men are equally evil, yet relatable and the reason they are bad makes sense.

How the author weaves the Redemptive story through a fantasy world is very well done.

Each of the characters and peoples grow or change through the coarse of the book, and it is brought to a great ending while getting you excited to for the next installment.

I highly recommend this book for anyone!

This is a Christian Fantasy book.

Great read! Intriguing characters and great storyline!

I couldn’t put this book down!

The storyline moves smoothly and effortlessly, while conveying a ton of information and getting you involved with the characters all at the same time!

You can’t help but root for Daith, and wonder where the twisting path before her will be taken by those who are in control.

Illusion is a great space opera book with some amazing powers mixed in!

Highly recommended, but fair warning, you’ll want to read the next one!

Review of Into Exile: Teutevar Saga Book 0 by Derek Alan Siddoway

10/10 Stars

What an amazing book!
The author does a great job introducing us to the characters in the world he’s created.
You can’t help but be sucked in you the adventure and emotions of the Lady Guinevere!

The story line had loyalty, family, community, friendship and villains. The women showed their strength, leadership, bravery, skills as a warrior and the willingness to keep going when it seems hopeless. The villains are bad, but realistic. You really feel for all the characters, their motivations, and their pain.

The world building was fleshed out well and character development enough for the reader to care about the characters.

Into Exile was very interesting and enjoyable read. It definitely leaves you wanting to read more.

The only thing it was missing was a map! Its a relatively short book, and I didn’t want to quit reading.

Pick this up-you will love it!

Review of Wielder of the Gauntlets by Jason A. Dimmick

 

9/10 Stars

Wielder of the Gauntlets delivers on a page turning action packed adventure!

I was hooked from the beginning – the author draws you into the story quickly and you’re invested in the main character instantly. The characters are developed enough, and the story moves along smoothly.

The book is an easy to read page turning adventure throughout. The fight scenes are well written, well thought out, and accurate. The author really did his homework on how people move in a fight and what would happen during various situations in the action (no spoilers, or would give more detail).

The mix of the Christian worldview into the action, with God providing humans a way to defend themselves against foes they would normally not be able to face is well thought out and adds an air of mystery, suspense, and fighting for a greater cause than yourself.

I’d highly recommend Wielder of the Gauntlets to anyone wanting a good sci/fi-fantasy read. Even more so if you like the Christian element and elements of superheroes thrown in.

Review of The Troven (Kingdom of Denall Book 1) by Eric Buffington

Awesome Fantasy & Coming of Age Story with a little superpowers thrown in! 

 

9/10 Stars
 Buy The Troven
Great read, great first book to the series, and it really sets the whole world up for a nice adventure. By the time I was in the middle I couldn’t put it down. The whole book is well written, and the magic/powers system is both unique and well thought out. Plenty of action, very memorable characters, and an amazing world the author put together.

Great character development throughout. All of the characters are interesting, have their own quirks, and have good reasons behind why they are doing what they are doing. There were quite a few of them, but Eric does a good job of weaving them in

There are a few lulls in the pace/action, but you get through them quickly and back to the more exciting bits. It makes sense with a first book in the series, and it really doesn’t detract from the overall experience.

I like that it is a series, but at the same time has a definite close/ending to this book. Eric put together a self-contained book that sets up the series perfectly. Plus, all three books are out, so you can keep going right now!

For an awesome adventure that will keep you reading and wanting to see the next installment, you have found your book! Pick it up to read and you won’t be disappointed. I’m on to Secrets at the Keep (Kingdom of Denall Book 2)!

Outbreak by Joshua C. Chadd Review

Zombie Apocalypse well done!

10/10 Stars

Great take on the genre, with two families trying to survive and protect themselves and their loved ones. Lots of action and it keeps you on your toes, wondering what will happen or how they will get out of it.

Humor is mixed in there as well, and the characters are relatable to what might actually happen if Zombies suddenly appeared. It’s also refreshing to see the attention to detail, especially in the weapons and gear the characters use.

The buildup and payoff is good, with enough mystery to continue on to the next installment.

The book doesn’t glamorize the gore, but doesn’t shy away from the reality of the situation. We are talking about the Zombie Apocalypse, so there is death and monsters, both the undead and human variety that will happen when civilization collapses.

Fans of “The Walking Dead” or zombie fans in general will love the book, as well as anyone looking for an entertaining read.

Looking forward to reading the next one!

 

The Good Fight by Several Authors

Book Review Disclaimer: I am an easy reader in that I like most of what I read (or I don’t finish it at all) and I am very forgiving/generous in what I consider a good book.

Rating: 1 – 10, 1 being barely readable to 10 being couldn’t put it down and need the next one.

9 out of 10 Stars

Overall, this was an awesome sampling of short stories by many great authors in the Superhero genre. I know, I know, I write fantasy, but I also love me some super heroes, in almost any form.

This being a short story collection, there were a couple I didn’t enjoy as much which garnered the 9 out of 10 rating instead of the full 10. But that is more of a personal preference I think, as all were well written and left me wanting to either find out more about the author or the world the superhero was in.

My favorites: Omega Night by Marion G Harmon and Out of Mind by Drew Hayes.

Warning: Some of the stories contain cuss words (including the f bomb), so might not be appropriate for all audiences.
