Book Review : What Moves the Dead

Book Review : What Moves the Dead

What Moves the Dead is a retelling of one of my favorite Edgar Allan Poe works, The Fall of the House of Usher. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from What Moves the Dead, as this was my first time reading both a Poe retelling and anything by T. Kingfisher. At first, I was really perplexed by what the heck I was reading, as What Moves the Dead spends […]

Book Review: The Inheritor

Book Review: The Inheritor

The Inheritor is one of those books that is so bad, it’s good. This was not my first Marion Zimmer Bradley book, but if it had, it probably would have been my last. Unlike Mists of Avalon, Bradley’s King Arthur epic, The Inheritor is full of extremely flat characters that lack understandable motivations and any sense. If Bradley intended to create characters straight out of soap opera, then she definitely […]
