Review: Masque of the Red Death

November 4, 2012 Review 8 ★★★★½

Don’t be fooled by the five star rating… This book is worth ten times as many stars. This novel is amazing, I fell in love with the characters and the plot; MASQUE OF RED DEATH has squeezed its way into my heart and into that pile of few novels I call “Favorites.” The author has created one of the best […]

Review: Leviathan

Review: Leviathan

October 31, 2012 Review 10 ★★★★½

Prepare for tons of gifs and hyphens! LEVIATHAN is probably the hardest novel I’ve had to review so far. This is because it is so completely different from anything I have ever read, it is a completely originally story that is based in 1914 and tells an alternate history of WWI where the feuding powers are Clankers (mechanical) and Darwinists […]

Review: Tempest Rising

Review: Tempest Rising

October 25, 2012 Review 0

Let me start by saying that when I was younger I used to love mermaid novels. I swam as if the water, not air, was my oxygen. Therefore I know quite well what it sounds like, and how objects and people move under there. Basically my point is that the main thing TEMPEST RISING is missing is realism. Objects “clatter” […]
