Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

April 28, 2015 Guests 0

Ever since it’s break onto the HBO TV scene in 2011, Game of Thrones has been a spectacular hit. But even before that the A Song of Ice and Fire book series has had an impressive empire of followers. The reason of the success of the series might seem obvious to the average viewer, especially after Peter Jackson’s adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series seemed to break new grounds for the fantasy genre. However, there is a much larger, much more varied history at work behind the style of storytelling than what meets the eye, and with season 5 having just started (which you can watch if you have HBO Go or DirecTV), now is a great time to take a closer look at what goes into these stories we all love so much.

5bat! Review: Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman

5bat! Review: Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman

March 27, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★★

When there is a significant wait between two related books, such as the wait (almost three years!) between SERAPHINA and SHADOW SCALE, I begin to doubt my impressions of the first book. This was the case here, as I began to worry that I had imagined how wonderful I thought SERAPHINA was and how there was no way that SHADOW SCALE could live up to the expectations I’d set up in my head. Luckily, SHADOW SCALE delivered on all my expectations and more.

Review: Ares’ Temptation by Aubrie Dionne

Review: Ares’ Temptation by Aubrie Dionne

March 27, 2015 Review 0 ★★★

The premise of a human becoming embroiled in the mythological world of the Greek gods is a pretty interesting one. I haven’t really read too many Greek god stories so I jumped at the opportunity to read ARES’ TEMPTATION and the plot sounded fun. I liked how Ares’ was tricked into associating with humans for the first time in well, ever apparently.
