A fun read with an ending that didn't quite satisfy. However, Duncan delights anyway with a likeable main character and enough twists to keep things interesting.
Penric and Desdemona must face off against a rogue shaman wanted for murder. As always, Bujold's writing draws you into her world and her characters never disappoint.
Tolkien meets Harry Potter in the first of this three book series. Reiffen's Choice harkens back to the traditional fantasy tales of old. Fun and entertaining, it's a good read, albeit not entirely original.
Outpost earns a solid four rockets from me. I liked the characters, the story, the planet, and the direction the author is going with all of it. It’s a good science fiction series you should add to your reading list.
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.
Lord of the Fire Lands by Dave Duncan continues the story begun in The Gilded Chain and ends with a twist that so surprised me I didn't wait long to pick up the next in the series. Duncan continues to impress!
Vick's Vultures barely qualifies for two rockets. Confusing writing, flat characters, and marginal storytelling couldn't salvage an otherwise promising premise.
Flat characters never instilled in me a desire to see or care if the crimes were solved. Lord Darcy is a fail for me.
