Generations: Book II, A Drizzt Novel
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By R.A. Salvatore
Publisher: HarperVoyager
Release Date: September 10, 2019

I opened the box carefully, reverently even. The last thing I wanted to do was damage the contents and though chances were slight, I closely monitored how deep the incision was, insuring that nothing inside would be harmed in any way. First one flap, then another, continuing on until all four were flipped out so as to facilitate the removal of the treasure within. A bit of packing paper and bubble wrap is all that separated me from the coveted prize inside its current containment. Lifting the multiple items from their home, I slowly removed one after another from the stack, setting them down carefully on the table beside me. After taking out four of them, I spotted it. It was next to last in the bundle, just waiting for me to take it up lovingly. I touched the cover, maybe to remind myself that this was no dream but in fact the time had come for it to be part of my life, to be a part of the world. Six books arrived that day from my editors, but only one was Boundless by R.A. Salvatore. And regardless of how my day was going, it had been redeemed, for Drizzt had come home again.

Becoming Superman: My Journey From Poverty to Hollywood
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By J. Michael Straczynski
Published: Harper Voyager
Release Date: July 23, 2019

You think you know a writer by the works they produce. And oftentimes, this is spot on. However, in this case, I was sadly mistaken. Becoming Superman: My Journey From Poverty to Hollywood is a harrowing tale that will break your heart and uplift your spirit, all at the same time. I have never met J. Michael Straczynski, but I hope to meet this amazing man one day. But before I give you an overview of his autobiography, let me just say I will not be able to do this book justice. But I will try my best.

Book Review: Barren: A Demon Cycle Novella

Demon Cycle
Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Peter V. Brett
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Release date: September 25, 2018

I am utterly unfamiliar with the Demon Cycle series, but if this novella is anything to go by, it is on my shortlist now. In Barren, we are given the chance to see humanity at its most desperate. For longer than any can remember, the demons have attacked settlements at night. And for much of that time, mankind has tried to survive by living behind their defenses and attacking only when necessary. And while this seems like a great plot, it is actually the backdrop for the real story.

King Of Ashes
The Firemane Saga – Book 1
Hardcover | Paperback (Large Print) | Kindle | Audiobook
By Raymond E. Feist
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Paperback Release date: May 8, 2018

Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod! Raymond E. Feist has not only released a new book, but it is the start of a brand new series! As a connoisseur of all things Riftwar, Midkemia, and Kelewan, I am astounded to find that this new series is a whole new setting! King Of Ashes is the first novel in The Firemane Saga which takes place on the world of Garn. This takes epic to all new levels, as Feist’s previous setting is rich with depth beyond the norm. Will this new world match up to 30 books and 35 years of storytelling? We shall see!

The Seven
Book 3 of “The Vagrant Trilogy”
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Peter Newman
Harper Voyager
Release Date: October 3, 2017

There is something quite satisfying about reviewing every book in a series. The ability to chronicle the growth of the tale, the author, and even, introspectively, myself is something that seldom is allowed to occur. Having reviewed both The Vagrant and The Malice, it just felt natural that I should shine a light on the last of the trilogy, The Seven. So, without any further ado, here is a glimpse at what the final installment has to offer.
