Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

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.
