Bizarre character behavior was so jarring I couldn't get through this one.
A promising start that fizzled out and ultimately led to me putting this one down.
This one fell flat on its face for me. DNF.
Master Assassins is probably a good first book in what may be a very intriguing series, but I’ll never know for sure since it was a DNF for me.
The pacing is all wrong on this one, with characters that are flung at the reader and just as quickly tossed away.
A one rocket bomb. I couldn't finish To Fall Among Vultures due to the erratic writing, flat characters, and confusing storytelling.
Some people might like this book, but I didn't. Flat writing and flatter characters means a DNF in my book. I do love the cover, though.
Readers of The Martian will want to love this book. I did. Unfortunately, I came away disappointed. Unsophisticated writing and juvenile humor made Artemis a slog which I finally had to give up on.
As the continuation of Jules Verne's classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, it's depressing to consider how great of a novel Nemo Rising could have been. Unfortunately, my only recommendation here is to give it a pass on your reading list.
Great premise but a failure to deliver on well developed characters and a storyline that fell back onto child antics too often left a bitter taste in my mouth on this one.
It's never easy saying goodbye to such engaging characters, but I was left with a satisfying conclusion and the fulfillment of many character arcs so I'm happy.
This final book in the A Man of His Word series should have ended with a bang. Instead, it was barely a fizzle. A good series, but not great, and not one I would say is a must-read.
If you’re looking for a collection that leans more towards the classic style of Lovecraft then I think Acolytes of Cthulhu is a worthy addition to your TBR list.
A high quality collection of short stories with a uniquely evil perspective.
"War. Magic. A lover's betrayal. A dark secret lies beneath them all."
So begins a tale of mystery and intrigue and some seriously powerful magic.
A story that is epic in scope is hampered by too many weak characters.
While the fantastic tech is no less prevalent in this second book in the Graven series, the storytelling and character development are ratcheted up a few notches to make this an exciting, bold read.
A lighthearted take on kaijus with minimal character and story development. Still, it may be a good read as long as you aren't expecting anything too serious.
Genre defying, truly mind-blowing technology, and a revenge plot where it doesn't seem anyone can really win. This book has a little bit of everything.
