A Crack in the World is fast-paced action from page one and at no point does Mordechai let the pace slow. This is 300+ pages of plot and I was totally absorbed the whole time. You’re thrown into the action with the first few chapters bouncing between ’12 hours’ and ‘one month’ earlier, and that really reels you in because you get to see where the story is going, but not how you’re going to get there. Plus you get a great idea of how weird things will become..

Review: Dusk (The Navigator #2) by Matthew Samuels
When author Matthew Samuels asked me if I wanted to read and review Dusk, I jumped at the opportunity. I had read and reviewed Parasites – the first book in The Navigators series – a couple of years ago, and I really enjoyed it. I thought the story was light and fun with interesting characters and settings. And, mostly, I liked Dusk for the exact same reasons.

Review: The Blood of Outcasts by D.A. Smith
The Blood of Outcasts is author D.A. Smith’s first published full-length novel and the premier book in The Bane Sword Trilogy. It is a dark and gritty story about the price paid for loyalty and honor – plus there are cool weapons, fights, and a little bit of magic.
Review: The Sword in the Street by C.M. Caplan
The Sword in the Street is C.M. Caplan’s debut novel and was a 2021 SPFBO semi-finalist. Interesting characters, well-written prose, and fun sword fights make this book one definitely worth reading.

The list of phenomenal books being released in 2022 is endless, so choosing five is so hard. But, here it goes: Five Reads for 2022 (BE WARE: some synopsis may contain spoilers for previous books).
Review: Of Darkness and Light (The Bound and the Broken #2) by Ryan Cahill
Of Darkness and Light is the second install in Ryan Cahill’s The Bound and the Broken series, and it is a book in which the author dramatically expands in all aspects versus book 1. The storyline has much more suspense and conflict, the character set is expanded, the characters also grow significantly, the world building is grander, and the pace is improved, as well. Of Darkness and Light is truly epic.
