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.

Five Hundred Years After by Steven Brust


Maybe I have overworked this author. I just didn’t find this book interesting even knowing some of the characters. The plot didn’t just plod, it made watching ice melt interesting. If his name wasn’t on the book, I wouldn’t believe the same guy wrote the Vlad Taltos series. This is a follow up to the “Phoenix Guards”, which I didn’t like either. Perhaps that should of alerted me to a possible trend. The setting is the same, the stilted speech is the same but the sizzle is gone. The best thing about the book was the cover art. I was really disappointed in the book and I don’t recommend it.
