Review: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs
Reviews / October 26, 2016

Another Mercy story, delving back in to the world of wolf pack business and where she belongs in the hierarchy. On top of that she has fae chasing after her trying to find a copy of a book she was given. Admittedly it has been quite a while since I have read any of the series and a refresher probably would have helped. I remembered the key players, but the smaller parts or those stories that happened in previous books we no longer in my mind. It was an enjoyable story all around. I would have liked to have a bit more detail. The final battle was rather lack luster and I feel they could have done a lot more with it. Quick read. Happy Ending. What more could you want?

CONvergence Book Haul
Hauls / October 20, 2016

Hey everyone! I know it has been a while and a lot has happened since the last video. I took a bit of a break while I was working out at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. Now I am back to go over the collection of books we’ve gathered at the different conventions. All of these authors are brand new to me, which I find completely exciting! BookTube talks a lot about authors we are familiar with, but this gives the small guys a chance to get their names out there. I met with a couple of them during the conventions and have to say that they impressed me. I am looking forward to digging into these guys and will keep you all posted about my thoughts. Until then, perhaps check them out yourself and see what you think. 🙂

Review: The Tournament by Matthew Reilly
Reviews / October 18, 2016

  Matthew Reilly took a surprising turn in this book in comparison to his other works that I have read. The Tournament is a historical mystery and unlike his others stays fully in the past. The Tournament is based off of a time in Queen Elizabeth I childhood that is not well known and has been speculated over by historians and authors alike. In this telling she is brought on a journey to the Ottoman Empire to witness a chess tournament of the worlds greatest players. Unlike almost all of Reilly’s other works, it is not so action packed that the characters cannot catch their breaths. It is thoughtful and strategic like a chess game. I really enjoyed this book! It was something different and refreshing from his normal style. I am looking forward to having this in my collection.
