I Recently Finished Reading: Rise of the Huntress

I mentioned in my review of the previous book that the larger story of the series was moving a little slowly for my taste. I'm happy to say that I feel like that has changed with Rise of the Huntress. This installment continues to keep the Spook's entourage away from the county. The war that … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Rise of the Huntress

I Recently Finished Reading: Gateway

I first read Gateway when I was working through the Hugo Award winners. I didn't remember much of the main story, but I vividly remembered the climax of the book. Having the knowledge of what was going to happen while reading it this time really changed some things. The premise of the book is really … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Gateway

I Recently Finished Reading: The Tombs of Atuan

It's been a long time since I've read The Tombs of Atuan, and I remember really enjoying it. On this read through, I found myself better understanding the significance of the story, but i didn't enjoy it as much. The bulk of the plot revolves around Aha, a young girl believed to be the reincarnation … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Tombs of Atuan

I Recently Finished Reading: The Night Circus

My wife has been asking me to read The Night Circus for months. It's one of her favorite books, but I tend to prefer more fast paced stories, so I've been putting it off. Over the last few weeks, however, I've been in the mood for something slower, so it seemed like a good time … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Night Circus

Hi! This is Jennie, Travis’s lovely wife. He’s been pestering me for a while to do a blog post, but I’ve been hesitant. I was hoping for the right topic to fall in my lap, and it kind of did.

I Recently Finished Reading: Clash of the Demons

The 6th book in the Wardstone Chronicles finally gives some big changes to the series. It's also the first book to take the characters away from their homeland. Both of these are very welcome changes to the series. The biggest change in the series has to do with Tom's mother. Her true nature is revealed, … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Clash of the Demons

I Recently Finished Reading: Rath’s Reckoning

This book picks up right where the second one left off, which makes sense, since the second book should have been a part of this one to begin with. Like the previous book, Rath's Reckoning is an action/adventure sci-fi with very little character development. None of the main characters changes or grows in any substantial … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Rath’s Reckoning
