I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Nemesis

Larry Correia has a good sense of timing with his larger stories. He used the first two books to set up the world and characters, then pulled a single protagonist aside for the third book. The fourth book again used the full cast of characters, and now, in the fifth book, he takes a minor, … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Nemesis

I Recently Finished Reading: Have Space Suit—Will Travel

It's been a while since I've read a Heinlein youth novel, and this one's been in my queue for a long time. I actually started reading this book about 6 months ago, but never got very far into it before I put it down and picked up something else. The beginning is pretty slow and … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Have Space Suit—Will Travel

I Recently Finished Reading: Interlude Brandon

I didn't realize until I started writing this that it's bee a year since I finished the second book in The Game Is Life series. That gap was too big, as I was really confused as I started Interlude Brandon. Once I got back into the flow of the book, everything was fine, and it … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Interlude Brandon

I Recently Finished Reading: Rath’s Gambit

One of the first things I noticed about Rath's Gambit is how short it was. The paperback is only 200 pages (6 hours for the audiobook), which is just over half the length of its predecessor. Part of the reason the book is so short is because it's so straightforward. The story focuses almost exclusively … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Rath’s Gambit

I Recently Finished Reading: Wrath of the Bloodeye

It's been a while since I read one the Spook's Apprentice books, but it was really easy to get back into the world. Wrath of the Bloodeye picks up a short while after the events of the previous book. Tom is still in danger from the Fiend and is sent to another spook named Bill … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Wrath of the Bloodeye

I Recently Finished Reading: The Stars My Destination

I probably started this book four or five times before I actually got past the first chapter or two. The book starts with a lengthy exposition on "jaunting," which is basically personal teleportation without any technological aid. It's an interesting idea, and it's a useful plot device, but the history goes on too long (it's … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Stars My Destination

I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Legion

I picked up this audiobook while on vacation. I knew that it would be easy enough to listen to that I could put it on while driving, but also quick and action packed which would help keep me awake. It delivered on those two things. The story picks up not long after the previous book … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Legion
