Review: Tombyards & Butterflies
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Tombyards & Butterflies (Montague & Strong Case Files #1)Tombyards & Butterflies by Orlando A. Sanchez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Overview:
This is a fast, fun fantasy that I'd recommend for fans of the Nate Temple, Harry Dresden, and Iron Druid series. It has all the hallmarks of a standard urban fantasy novel -- fast pace, lots of action, short quippy dialogue, humor, paranormal/supernatural investigations, and bad-boy heroes with dark pasts. If you like quick adventure stories with a lot of banter, this is your jam.

Game Review: Unsolved Case Files
Friday, August 27, 2021

For my birthday this year, my husband and I decided to try our hand as amature detectives. :)

We ordered a "cold case" online from a company called Unsolved Case Files. They have lots of different cases to choose from, but the one I picked was "Veronica Falcone." Here's a quick synopsis:

Game Review: AER: Memories of Old
Tuesday, August 17, 2021

3 of 5 stars
I grabbed this game on discount yesterday because I liked the idea of having a character who could fly. The game world is set up so the land is composed of a bunch of small, floating islands. You play as a shapeshifter who turns into a bird so that you can explore those islands. That game dynamic is very fun and I was happy with the experience.

Review: The Heroine's Journey

The Heroine's JourneyThe Heroine's Journey by Gail Carriger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gail Carriger's The Heroine's Journey was an interesting exploration of the practical, philosophical, and cultural aspects of storytelling. I won't go in-depth on the content -- that's what the book is for after all -- but I will say that it gave me a good deal to think about. The writing itself was easy to follow. Carriger's voice is witty and entertaining, as fans of her fiction can attest, so even the driest sections were not difficult to get through.

Review: The Burning Son

The Burning SonThe Burning Son by T.H. Leatherman
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

A great sci-fi adventure in a wonderfully detailed universe. If you love space opera, you should definitely check out The Burning Son.

While it took me a while to warm up to the main character, astro-navigator Mark Martin, the world building and uniquely developed alien races kept me engaged. The story kicks off with the fall of Martin's home world to an invasive race of religious zealots. Martin and his sister flee the planet aboard, basically, a pirate ship.
