Time of Contempt
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Geralt remains AWOL for much of this book, which really is a shame because he has so much potential as a main POV character. Unfortunately, Time of Contempt continues the downward slide in ratings for this series.

The Memory of Earth
by Orson Scott Card

This one fell flat on its face for me. DNF.

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
by L. Frank Baum

Much like watching holiday favorites year after year, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is easily a story one can read each season.

The Privilege of the Sword
by Ellen Kushner

Very well written but The Privilege of the Sword just didn't give me enough to truly enjoy it. Still, it has some moments where it shines so I'm giving it three rockets.

Blood of Elves
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Jilted storytelling and a main character who is missing for much of the book makes Blood of Elves a two rocket read for me.

Book Reviews

Quietus
by Tristan Palmgren

A story that begins with great promise perhaps becomes a bit too complex for its own good, but ultimately entertains and deserves your consideration.

The Drawing of the Three
by Stephen King

A promising series fizzles out for me almost from the get-go in this second book in the Dark Tower series.

Book Reviews

The Vagrant
by Peter Newman

The Vagrant is a literary work that is bold, dismal, groundbreaking, and genre defying all at once. It's worth a read for its uniqueness alone. Throw in a knight, a baby, and a goat as traveling companions and what are you waiting for?

The Mark of Ran
by Paul Kearney

I went into this with high hopes, but was ultimately disappointed. While I did finish The Mark of Ran, I have no desire to jump into book two.
