Review: The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso

The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso I haven’t had much luck when it comes to finding new fantasy novels from NetGalley. Not sure why that is, or why I keep checking, but I gave The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso a… Continue Reading →

Review: HALO: Envoy by Tobias S. Buckell

HALO: Envoy by Tobias S. Buckell When a war ends, it’s not entirely over for everyone. One of my favorite lines from Gears of war: Jacinto’s Remnant was one of the Gears wondering now that the war with the Locusts was… Continue Reading →

Review: Binary/System by Eric Brown

Binary/System by Eric Brown Review Binary/System is a bit of a simple story, and yet it tells a tale that would frighten each and every human. What if you were traveling to the far end of space and were the… Continue Reading →

Review: Never Dare a Dragon by Ashlyn Chase

When I saw Never Dare a Dragon in NetGalley, the idea of a phoenix and dragon working as shape-shifting firefighters was a bit intriguing. It was also labeled as a “paranormal romance,” and that intrigued me as well. I used to… Continue Reading →

Late to the Waaagh Review: Heroes of the Space Marines by Various Authors

As I carve my way through the world of Warhammer 40,000, one omnibus at a time, I decided to read Heroes of the Space Marines next as part of my WH40K education. I haven’t read an older book since finishing the Eisenhorn omnibus… Continue Reading →

Review Tour + Giveaway: Chaos Unbound by Brian S. Leon

I’ve never read the first of The Metis Files, risking the possibility that I would have absolutely no understanding of what was going on in this series installment. I debated purchasing the first book to get myself up to speed, but… Continue Reading →

Review: Halo: Fractures by Various Authors

I mentioned in my last Halo book review that I sometimes find more pleasure in reading the short stories of the extended universe more than the novels. This latest prose (not comic) collection of Halo short stories only reaffirmed my thinking. Halo: Fractures… Continue Reading →

Review: Halo: Tales from Slipspace

I almost enjoy the short stories from the Halo extended universe more than the novels. Sometimes these short stories are about small battles in the various wars against Insurrectionists and the Covenant. Most of the them, however, tell stories outside the Spartans’… Continue Reading →

Review: Halo: Smoke and Shadow

One thing about reading the Halo extended universe is that you never know what obscure, off the cuff reference from a book or comic will spin off into its own medium. Such is the case with Halo: Smoke and Shadow. The novella… Continue Reading →

Review: Tomb of the Khan (Assassin’s Creed: Last Descendants #2) by Matthew J. Kirby

I never got into the novelizations of the Assassin’s Creed games, but the novels regarding the extended universe are incredibly solid. Matthew J. Kirby’s first novel in the Last Descendants series was utterly captivating from the first page to the final period…. Continue Reading →

Review: Mass Effect Andromeda: Nexus Uprising by Jason M. Hough and K.C. Alexander

I reviewed the video game, Mass Effect Andromeda, for PlayStation LifeStyle when it released. I was not a fan of the game, because despite how fun the gameplay was, the story was lackluster and uninspired. It was yet another Chosen One… Continue Reading →

Review: Deus Ex: Black Light by James Swallow

Quite a bit has happened in between the video games Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. At the end of the former game, protagonist Adam Jensen dropped into the freezing ocean after he opted to destroy Panchaea and its diabolical… Continue Reading →

Review: Song of the Deep by Brian Hastings

I played the video game Song of the Deep when it released last year. The visuals were breathtaking, and I love the developer, Insomniac. I was thrilled that they were trying something new with a child-like fairy tale of a story…. Continue Reading →

Review: The Vorago Fastness by David Annandale

It’s a blessing and a curse to subscribe to the Black Library’s newsletter. It’s a blessing to always hear of new books, short stories, etc. It’s a curse because then I feel the need to buy all the things. One… Continue Reading →
