The best book in the series so far, Baptism of Fire is marked by a series of notable events and characters who keep the pace moving and the reader's interest as Geralt (finally) takes center stage.
Don't let the dated cover fool you. This is an excellent read with some truly intriguing characters.
Bizarre character behavior was so jarring I couldn't get through this one.
A fairy tale type of story that is likable enough, even if it is marred by some unlikable characters.
A promising start that fizzled out and ultimately led to me putting this one down.
The best of the best for 2018. Earning top honors is a tough endeavor. See if you agree with my selections.
2018's most popular book and movie reviews.
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.
This one fell flat on its face for me. DNF.
Perilous Seas accelerates the pace of the series with some of the best storytelling and character development to date.
A fantastical, family-friendly horror film that has all the right elements for some seriously spooky fun.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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 high quality collection of short stories with a uniquely evil perspective.
