5bat! Review: Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel

5bat! Review: Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel

PRIDE AND PROMETHEUS is not only a clever, thought-provoking mash-up between two beloved stories -Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice – it expertly captures the tone and themes of each book.  There is such an excellent balance between Gothic Horror and Regency Romance.

Review: Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner

Review: Nemo Rising by C. Courtney Joyner

January 19, 2018 Review 0

I’ve got a lot of mixed feelings about NEMO RISING. I enjoyed the whole story, but when I sat down to write this review and really started thinking about it, I realized that I gave the book too much slack because of my love of 20,000 LEAGUES. If NEMO RISING wasn’t about Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, but about some other random submarine post Civil War I would not have liked it anywhere near as much.

Review: The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy #1) by S.A. Chakraborty

January 5, 2018 Review 2

If I was rating the first half of THE CITY OF BRASS, it wouldn’t get very many stars. I nearly put the book down at 25% and never picked it up again – but this book has received a lot of love lately, and I wanted so very much to like it that I pushed through. And I am so glad I did. By the end of THE CITY OF BRASS, I understood the hype and I was reading this book like it was the air I need to live.
