Review: The Burning Sea

I was engaged in this story pretty much from page 1. I loved the plot, characters, and setting. Not that the setting is any place I would want to live, but I felt it was something a bit new, and different from what I’ve read previously.

Review: Winter’s Fury

Review: Winter’s Fury

Almost right from page 1, I was hooked. The writing in this, did something I had not experienced in a long time. I picked it up and did not want to stop. I had a hard time finding “good places” to stop for the night, or before going to start my work day, and all too often, had to put it down desperate to know what was about to happen. I became slightly more productive at work because I was so focused on getting what I needed to done, because I wanted to get back to the story as quickly as possible.
