I was tempted to abandon this book after the first chapter, but I didn’t want to pick another book for the square I was reading it for. A lot of animals and a lot of people die in this book, and I don’t feel that the payoff of the story is worth the suffering. There’s also rape, and insane levels of...

The Library at Mount Char defies easy labels, something like dark fantasy slash horror with an incredibly black sense of humor, but both more fun and less fun than that sounds. The opening positively crawls along, and it's not until maybe halfway through that I began to make sense of the incredibly...

I started this book more than three months ago. I kept coming back to and deciding to read something else. Today I did that again and decided this one just isn't for me.It's well written: strong characters, vivid action, a clear sense of place and lots of "something wicked this way comes" foreboding...

I am still trying to figure out what I just read, and what to say about it!!!!! This book was really messed up that's for sure.

I liked some aspects of this book, and the story held my interest, but for some reason I didn’t completely connect with it. This is a fantasy story set in the “real world”, in the present day. The basic premise, at least so far as we understand it at the beginning of the book, is that several orph...

This is one of those rare books that is nearly impossible to categorize, and refuses to fit into any particular genre. There are strong elements of fantasy and horror throughout, but it never quite lands in any one place long enough to be easily defined. It contains plenty of dark humor and absurdit...

Have you ever read a book and felt like you came in at the middle? Or maybe that there was a prequel that you somehow didn't know about? If you answered yes to either one of these questions then you know how I felt while reading The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins. I felt thrust into a set of...

This was an incredibly strange and wonderful trip. I was down with this one from the beginning, but it did lose me for a minute and a few times I thought it was going to go all completely “fantasy” and lose me totally, but then buckets of blood and guts rained down on the pages, which of course, mad...
