At the End of Your Tether
Reviews / October 4, 2019

by V. V. Glass, Adam Smith There’s one word that perfectly summarizes my feelings towards this graphic novel, and that’s confusing. I have no idea what I just read, and despite giving it my best effort there was nothing that explained the complex plot in this book in a way that made it understandable. The idea is wonderful, the art it great, but the biggest problem here is that the dialogue doesn’t seem to fit with the images, there’s no natural flow between the different frames and it’s impossible to keep up with what’s happening. One moment we’re learning that Arlo has disappeared from her home, but the next frame jumps back in time and without explanation we’re given what appears to be a completely random scene from the past.  It all starts in the 1st chapter, and I didn’t understand a thing. There wasn’t anything cohesive about the chapter and I actually had to stop and make sure that it wasn’t a case of formatting gone crazy on my computer. The dialogue didn’t match up, and it seemed as if the characters answered the wrong questions. So odd. I still decided to keep reading and I had high hopes…

Ashlords
Reviews / October 3, 2019

by Scott Reintgen In Ashlords we meet three characters from very different cultures, and they are all competing against each other in a horse race of a lifetime. One is an Ashlord golden girl, born into a position of power and fame, one is a revolutionary’s son who bears the fate of his people’s freedom on his shoulders, and one is a determined alchemist protégé who hopes to show the Ashlords her people are done bowing to them. When I got the chance to read and review Ashlords I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve read several books from Scott Reintgen and I’ve truly loved all of them. As I stared reading Ashlords, I had no idea what this book was about. I hadn’t read a single thing about it, nor did I read the blurb, all I did was begin at page one. The first thing I noticed was how unusual this world was, and I really fell in love with the whole concept of riding horses that had died and burned to ashes every night and had to be revived at sunrise. It was so fascinating to see the alchemy and what could be done with it, and the…

Windward
Reviews / September 23, 2019

by S. Kaeth Palon is a dragonbonded, which means that she shares the mind and life with a dragon. Her dragon partner, Windward, also shares her love for risky adventures. Together they have become renowned among their nest for their flying skill, and Palon is known to take big risks and bend the rules a little more than she probably should. And paired with her tendency to lash out, Palon’s reputation doesn’t help her when treasures from the dragons’ hoards are found in her collection. No one believes her when she tells them she’s innocent, and she’s forced to risk everything to find the true culprit and prove she was framed. I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. First of all, I want to say that this is a great book with a new take on dragons (at least for me). I found the world very interesting and the characters were well developed and there was a great plot with good twists and turns that made it interesting to read all the way to the end. So, if you like fantasy, and dragons, don’t hesitate to order a copy of this book. I’m sure…

Blog / September 17, 2019

by Scott Reintgen Today is the release of a great book from a really talented author, and I wanted to take a moment here and let you all know about it. It’s the book Saving Fable by Scott Reintgen. It’s a really great book and my review will be uploaded in a few days. Until then, take a look at the blurb and the gorgeous cover. Side characters can be heroes too in this charming and fast-paced adventure that is The Land of Stories meets The Phantom Tollbooth! Indira has been a character-in-waiting her entire life.

But Indira’s dreams of achieving hero status don’t exactly go as planned. A failed audition lands her in the school’s side-character track, and her best efforts to prove advisors–famous characters like Alice from Wonderland and Professor Darcy–wrong are constantly sabotaged.
