Vengeance or mercy- The 100 gives you both

I just watched episode 6, "The Bitter Harvest", which continues to evolve the series as Clarke had to decide to let an enemy live or die. The Grounders also again prove that even though the Skypeople have superior weapons they be a surprise because of their gorilla tactics. Food is growing short for the Skypeople and the factions still have drastically different ideas of how to survive. You learn more about the City of Light and the science behind what the pill  does  with a good part of this episode involving searching for additional information. This was a decent...

New classic SciFi in the making and better than the Expanse TV show

I have been really enjoying The Expanse series both as a book and the first season of the tv show. This second book will give you a heads up on what you will see in the second season.     You get all of the main characters crewing the Rocinante and several new ones. The story starts with Bobbi, a Martian marine, as the only survive of a monster attack. Bobbi finds herself working for an Earth politician as their planets are on the verge of war.  Another major plot line involves the...

Drizzt has competition for the best fantasy swordsman in Ashok

Ashok is a highly efficient killing machine who begins as a single-minded 20-year veteran of The Protectors, whose mission is to serve as judge, jury, and executioners of anyone who breaks The Law. The book begins with him defeating two huge demons which only serve as a warmup to the action yet to come. Ashok's leader gives him a choice to either take a well-deserved retirement or find out a secret that will change the entire world. There are at least two things I really liked about...

A forgettable tale that lacked the dramatic effect it could have had

Warheart continues to story of Richard and Kahlan that started in Wizard's First Rule back in 2010. Wizard's First Rule was a good start to the series as Richard finds himself in a new world against overwhelming odds.  This 15th book in the series doesn't have the same magic though. The book revolves around the Underworld and its relationship with magic and the living.  Richard is dead  at the beginning of this book and Kahlan makes unusual decision involving traveling to the Underworld to get his soul back. Much of this book delves into the idea that prophesy comes...

The series continues to improve as their world expands

Hunted is the second book in the Dragonlands series by Megg Jensen and the story really gets going in this book.   The first book was about Hutton's Bridge, a small town separated from the rest of the world by a fog wall, that people enter but never return from.  The wall comes down in the first book and Bastian, Tressa, and Conner adventure out to the city ruled by a cruel warrior queen. But in this book you learn more about the rest of the world as the trio look for their townsfolk who have suddenly disappeared.  Other...

Poorly executed fantasy story that didn't engage me

I have read a lot of fantasy novels over the years and this was not one of the good ones. The storyline is very shallow about a young man beginning to learn that he is a mage a he travels with an older shaman. The main problem with this book is that the plotline is rushed and when a good concept is introduced it is not described well and only discussed after it happens.  The characters are also not well developed as they talk more about where they are going and not about who they...

Not as much added to the Silo series as I would have hoped

I read Wool, the first book in the Silo Series, about two months ago and now am reviewing Shift.  Shift starts a prequel about a young politician named Donald who helps design the interiors for the silos.  There a three main plotlines and time periods in Shift and Donald by being put into suspended animation is a part of all three. My problem is that I found Donald to be a fairly uninteresting character.  He really doesn't have much motivation or even understanding of what is going on and so you as the reader don't learn about exactly what...

Those that enjoy super hero stories and fantasy or SciFi should enjoy this book

I just finished reading Superiority Complex by Samuel Eden and here is my review of the book. This superhero novel focuses on four characters; two heroes and two villains. The first story is about Jason Chalmers, a hero that suddenly finds himself on the premier superhero team, The Defenders, right out of superhero school because of his unique powers including precognition and chronal energy discharge. Jason goes by the superhero name Slipstream and finds himself learning on the job as he faces off against a horde of zombies. I found the section about Slipstream to be one of the...

Great series about a young girl that trains to be a knight

It has been some time since I read this series but I will simply say Protector of the Small is a great series. You get to read about the trials that a young person (a young girl in this story) goes through to become a knight.  The training is grueling both physically and mentally but young Kel is up to the challenge. If you enjoy stories of young people growing up and showing bravery and heart before they become great like I do than read this book.  I think it is one of the best fantasy/historical fiction series that...
