Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Winter Night – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

Recently, I shared my love for the first book in the Dragonlance Chronicles series. Well, re-reading that novel for my article awoke something in me. Suddenly, I was reminded of the magical world of Kyrnn and all of the memorable characters that were a part of its history. I found myself unable to resist the urge to revisit the second...

Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Autumn Twilight – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to get out a soft blanket, pour a fresh mug of coffee, and curl up with a good book. When I was younger, a good portion of my autumn afternoons and evenings were spent this way. Sadly, as an adult, I don’t get as much time with my...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Black Spire – Delilah S. Dawson

The last time I reviewed a Star Wars novel it didn’t go very well. The book in question was A Crash of Fate. This was a novel created for the sole purpose of drumming up hype for Disney’s new Galaxy’s Edge theme park. The story itself wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t particularly good either. In the end, the book appeared...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Crash of Fate – Zoraida Cordova

When Disney originally announced the reboot of the Star Wars Expanded Universe project, fans were excited. The promise we heard was that all future Star Wars novels would be vetted for quality and every release would be canonical. This was good news because as any old school Star Wars fan will tell you, there was more than a few stinkers...

Night Shift – Stephen King

It has become a tradition of mine to read and review a Stephen King novel each year for Halloween. I started this tradition by reading King’s first novel, Carrie. From there, I progressed through each of his books chronologically by date of publication. The last review was for Rage, a novel written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. At this...

Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances – Timothy Zahn

Fresh off the heels of my review for Star Wars: Most Wanted, I’m back again to share my thoughts on another Star Wars novel. This time I’m taking a look at the sequel to Timothy Zahn’s excellent reintroduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn, a book called Thrawn: Alliances. Just to recap a bit, in the last book, Thrawn, we were provided...

Rage – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

It’s October! That means it’s time for my annual Stephen King book review. In keeping with my tradition of reviewing King’s books in chronological order, I find myself at an interesting point. So far, I’ve reviewed Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining – the first three books authored by Stephen King. The next book released under the ‘Stephen King’ name...

The Shining – Stephen King

Continuing with my tradition of reviewing a Stephen King novel in time for Halloween, this year I set aside some time to revisit a real classic, The Shining. This was King’s third full-length novel, and by the time this book was published it seems he had fully embraced the label of “horror author”. In case you’ve never actually read the...
