This epic fantasy includes a little breaking and entering, plenty of snarky insults, political intrigue, magical beasts, and a chaotic neutral maimed mage. For me, the tale started off fun but not particularly special. It wasn’t until about a quarter of the way through the book that the tale grabbed...

This was a Goodreads recommendation - I like a rollicking, well written adventure as much as the next person but this wasn't it. Too many information dumps. I wanted to like the two main characters but 25% into the book still didn't know them and thought their relationship lacked any dynamic. I h...

Well, I absolutely loved this book. Loved it loved it loved it loved it. Actually, I should say that I loved Royce. It’s been a while since I’ve 100% latched on to a character. Matter of fact, I haven’t felt that way in 3 months. I’ve loved and really liked quite a few books since that one the kept ...

I began to read this a month ago because I needed a change of pace, but got sidetracked with writing. Finally I was able to pick this back up this week and I am glad I finished it. I liked how this book was structured. It was almost two books in one. The first story was the setup to introduce the ...

They're set up as being the murderers of a king in a kingdom and they have to work out a way of getting away from the death penalty. Meanwhile they get caught up in a more complicated plot for ...

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsWhen a friend lent me Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan, I have to admit I was tentative about beginning it. Not because I did not want to sample this series which I had read and heard so much about from its numerous followers on Goodreads, but for the...

Hadrian and Royce are a team of mercenary thieves who live from one job to another with little to no remorse for what they do or for whom they do it. Then, one afternoon, they are hired for what seems like a relatively easy--suspiciously easy--job that lands them in the dungeon in The Crown Conspira...

God, I enjoyed this book (which is really two books in one). It has a mix of likable characters, humor and a nice story that just works for me. I wouldn't call it the best series ever written and I fear that it might not hold up on a second reading, but at least while you're reading it for the first...

First, I should say that an Amazon reseller accidentally sent me an Advance Review copy, so I don't know if perhaps some changes were made between what I got to read, and the final product. The review is based on the version I received.This was an enjoyable read, with engaging, likable characters a...
