Vista, Princess Of Hell

May 13, 2022

She gazed into the brass mirror. For a moment her eyes lingered on the five dragons encircling the edge of the reflective surface. A gift from her adopted father. Beautiful, yes, but she often wondered if he gave it to her as a continuous reminder of half of her heritage and… eternal debt. She allowed […]

Triumph of the Wizard King by Chad Corrie is the last book in The Wizard King Trilogy. I read the first two books of this series last summer. The first was on my big vacation and since I was getting married, I saved the last one for our first Honeymoon. I can not say this […]

Trial of the Wizard King by Chad Corrie

August 11, 2021

Trial of the Wizard King by Chad Corrie is the second book in the Wizard King series. I am reading the first two books back-to-back which is a privilege I have rarely enjoyed of the past 10+ years of writing book reviews. After the Created Series which I read in order, I am finding I […]

The Book of Thomas by Robert Boyczuk is the first 5 star review I have given in over a year. But let me back up for a moment. This novel is published by ChiZine which for a long time was my favorite publisher, but then, like so many things in life, e-books and such took […]

March 31, 2020

The Dungeons and Dragons, 5th Edition Monster Manual was released from Wizards of the Coast a while ago. As mentioned in previous reviews, I have delved into the newest edition of Dungeons and Dragons with the goal of teaching my growing boys the playing style they are more likely to encounter out in their circles […]

Volo’s Guide to Monsters

February 20, 2020

Volo’s Guide to Monsters is an amazing addition to the Dungeons and Dragons 5e game. Unlike former monster manuals, it goes past giving the reader descriptions and stats, although it does do this as well. I enjoyed the manual for many reasons which I will detail below. Genre: Fantasy Role Playing Publisher: Wizards of the […]

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

November 21, 2019

This is not the first time I have read The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander. The first time was several decades ago when I was twelve. This time I am reading it to my young boys after they get into their beds for the night. Funny how little I remembered, but that is another […]
