Book Review : The Bladed Faith

Book Review : The Bladed Faith

I was drawn to The Bladed Faith because of the cool, if tried and true, concept of an usurped prince becoming an assassin in order to take back his throne and to save his people from oppression of an evil empire. I enjoyed this fun fantasy novel, with its relatively consistent fast-pacing, unique concepts, such as Gods living among their worshippers, and entertaining twists. I even read it within three […]

Book Review : Notorious Sorcerer

Book Review : Notorious Sorcerer

Notorious Sorcerer is a debut fantasy novel written by Davinia Evans. This novel follows a cast of characters in a city called Bezim.

Why do I do this to myself?   Perhaps it’s that tiny sliver of […]

Instead, Circe offers a rejected and insecure goddess who is not like the others, and plops her on an island to live […]

Book Review : The Oleander Sword

Book Review : The Oleander Sword

The Oleander Sword is the much anticipated follow-up to Tasha Suri’s 2021 release The Jasmine Throne. I probably should have reread The Jasmine Throne before starting The Oleander Sword, but I was too excited to jump in, so I picked up the sequel as soon as I had the time. Unfortunately, there was no recap of the previous entry in the series and I found myself regretting this decision almost immediately.   There is a […]
