Faery Lands Forlorn
by Dave Duncan

Overall a slow read with some confusing plotlines which is saved by some good character building and the promise of the larger story forming for our two main characters.

Magic Casement
by Dave Duncan

A slow start to the series with minimal character development, I'm nevertheless giving this one three rockets because it does build a good foundation for the remainder of the series.

Sun of Suns
by Karl Schroeder

A little confusing at times, Sun of Suns is nevertheless an excellent book with some beautiful worldbuilding.

Hell Divers III: Deliverance

Deliverance maintains the fast pace of the previous novels, but the writing, which continues to remain shallow, and the lack of any real character development took this one down a notch compared to the early novels in the series.

Hell Divers II: Ghosts
by Nicholas Sansbury Smith

A fast-paced, fun novel that isn't going to dazzle you with its sophisticated writing but which will take you along for one hell of a ride.

Of Blood and Honey
by Stina Leicht

Of Blood and Honey is perhaps the most literary urban fantasy book I’ve read in recent memory. Don't let the "fey and the fallen" subtitle fool you, either. There's a lot of grit here and characters who may surprise you if you let them.

Memnon
by Scott Oden

Historical fiction at its best. Memnon is a character that history knows so little about, yet Oden breathes a spectacular life into him and has written a superb book.
