Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Dzur by Steven Brust




By now if you have read any of my blog, however unlikely that may be, you probably realize I am a Brust fan. The guy’s stories keep my thinking as well as entertaining me. In this book the comparison of murder to gourmand behavior is thought provoking. If Brust isn’t one of those live to eat folks as opposed to eat to live crew, he sure can capture the flavor of the former. As usual there are references in the book to previous books and or times. Since there doesn’t seem to be any clear chronological plan to the books this isn’t as confusing as you may think. His work is gripping without being nail biting. Using his technique in this book, somewhat similar to green Tabasco vs. red Tabasco, one has heat and flavor and one just has heat. Good book, if you haven’t started the series do it, you won’t regret it.
