We have now come to the concluding volume in the Pslams of Isaak series and it was impossible to predict which way the story would turn.

I recieved a copy this book early as supported the Kickstarter. During the pandemic, Brandon Sanderson surprised us all by writing not one, not two, but four novels without anyone seeming to know what was going on. Tress of the Emeralds Sea is the first of these novels set to be released in 2023 and wow is this worth the wait. Inspired by The Princess Bride, this novel opens the scope of what worldbuilding and imagination can bring while compiling together an engaging adventure story. The story is narrated by our good old friend Hoid. Told in a whimsical and fun tone that fans of the Cosmere w ..read more

So what do you get when you combine an urban fantasy, in a apocalyptic setting, with main characters walking around like gods? A thrilling and kickass story that took me back to my love of Marvel and Sandman. With the novel being less than two hundred pages and short chapters this is sure to be a quick action packed read with the sequel coming right around the corner. Oh, did I mention that ths series takes place in a multiverse?!?! The rubble of New York City is now controlled by those with the talent known as the Apostles. The Apostles are ruled by The Prince, as talent with one eye and the ..read more

I recieved an ARC of this novel from Orbit and netgalley in exchange for a honest review. The final entry in The Drowning Empire trilogy has finally arrived! This book was hands down my most anticipated novel heading into 2023 before I was blessed with this early copy. Shocking, tragic, action packed, and a emotional roller coaster are the things that immediately pop into my mind when looking back in retrospect. What Andrea has created here is an epic saga with the best and most unexpected twists I have ever found in a series. Everything is kept so close to the chest and you will not see them ..read more

I received an ARC from the authors in exchange for a honest review. I was lucky enought to be sent an early version of this book before the kickstarter finished.

Guest Blog Post – Welcome to Our World: Please Obey the Rules by Joshua Bangera Young

The rules of any game are as essential as the game itself. If you were playing chess and your opponent moved their pawn four spaces to the left, you would feel cheated. You may even stop to explain pawns just don’t move like that. Rules govern our chess games, just as they govern the worlds in our science fiction and fantasy stories. We must accept they cannot be broken, bent, or distorted. As inventive and strange as sci-fi/fantasy novels can be, they are far from ‘anything goes.’ A good author must present both the strangeness of the world and the rules on how to navigate. In this regard, no ..read more

Writing Science into Scifi After spending most of the first 24 hours of marriage in various airports and flights, I can finally spend some time with my new husband. I smile, lay my head on his shoulder and say “So another thing I would have changed about Rogue One would have been—” On buses, during fancy dinners, or in any number of other places of our Alaskan honeymoon one conversation kept cropping up: what we would have changed about the newest Star Wars movie Rogue One. It wasn’t a bad film, but I just couldn’t shake the idea that instead of yet another story about down-on-their-luck rebel ..read more
