Royal Destiny by Morgan Howell My rating: 3 of 5 stars In general, I really enjoyed this series. But this book was definitely the weakest of the three, which is a shame, because it was the end. I have come to be extremely emotionally invested in Dar and in Kovoh-mah, her orc companion. I wanted […]Read More Book Review: Royal Destiny by Morgan Howell (Queen of the Orcs III)
Clan Daughter by Morgan Howell My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m really enjoying this series! But I found this book a harder read than the first one, King’s Property. I’m not sure why that is. I think maybe it’s because the first book was such a nail-biting horror-fest that you kind of hope that […]Read More Book Review: Clan Daughter by Morgan Howell (Queen of the Orcs #2)
King’s Property by Morgan Howell My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked up this series on some credit at the second-hand bookstore. I was intrigued by the premise, in that it sounded like this was a book that was going to challenge the tired old “orcs are bad guys you can kill with impunity” […]Read More Book Review: King’s Property by Morgan Howell (Queen of the Orcs #1)

Dexter by Design by Jeff Lindsay My rating: 5 of 5 stars Still struggling through with my headache, so not much to do but read. And I wasn’t up to reading anything challenging, so it was a perfect time to carry through with the next Dexter: An Omnibus novel, my guilty pleasure. For those unaware, […]Read More Book Review: Dexter by Design by Jeff Lindsay
Dexter in the Dark by Jeff Lindsay My rating: 4 of 5 stars So I’ve been miserably ill with a dislocated neck this past week. It’s been causing the kind of constant and persistent headache that makes it impossible to do anything useful. I can’t write, I can’t edit, and I sure as hell don’t […]Read More Book Review: Dexter in the Dark by Jeff Lindsay
Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars Eager for all things Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire, I asked for this book for a Yuletide gift. My kids got it for me for Mother’s Day. They’re good kids (adult kids, now; older than I’d like […]Read More Book Review: Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin @GRRMSpeaking
A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars So I wrote a big, long review for this a while ago, and then Goodreads ate it. Guess I took too long. So you’re going to get the short-and-dirty version. This book differs significantly from the TV show. There are whole […]Read More Book Review: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R.
