DarkSon's Comments    
Cover ArtDealing with dragons
by Patricia C. Wrede
A nice twist on classic fantasy tales. Here’s a princess that refuses to "play" the role of princess. A wonderful sense of humor is evident through out the whole series.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 5:24PM

Cover ArtFor a few demons more
by Kim Harrison
Another top notch entry in the Rachel Morgan story. Lots of intrigue and adventure and a satisfying plot. One of my favorite series at the moment.   posted Jul 3, 2007 at 5:17PM

Cover ArtBlue Mars
by Kim Stanley Robinson
Great trilogy set in the future after the colonization of Mars. Great characters and plotting. Well paced and a great read.   posted May 22, 2007 at 5:16PM

Cover ArtAmerican gods
by Neil Gaiman
An Englishman write the great American novel. Gaiman’s sens of humor shines throughout.   posted May 22, 2007 at 5:15PM

Cover ArtOld man’s war
by John Scalzi
Science fiction at it’s best. Fast paced, fun ideas, and a wonderful sense of humor. Scalzi’s a lot of fun to read.   posted May 21, 2007 at 2:54PM

Cover ArtThe Last colony
by John Scalzi
Scalzi continues the story started in Old Man’s War Good, solid science fiction at it’s best.   posted May 21, 2007 at 2:42PM

Cover ArtThe Name of the wind
by Patrick Rothfuss
A great first book by a new author. Rothfuss takes familiar ground and turns it around. Great storytelling and world building. The best part is the whole trilogy is already written, aside from some tweaking to make it fit into the trilogy format. Storytelling at it’s best.   posted May 21, 2007 at 2:38PM

Cover ArtWhite night
by Jim Butcher
The Adventures of Harry Dresden continue. Butcher’s in top form with this newest tale from the Dresden Files.   posted May 21, 2007 at 2:36PM

Cover ArtDead witch walking
by Harrison, Kim
Wonderful series. Harrison has carved out a great niche for herself with this series. Who knew such things were going on in Cincinatti?   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:22PM

Cover ArtTall, dark & dead
by Hallaway, Tate
Not marked towards my demographic, but I read the book and enjoyed it immensely. The sequel just came out, Dead Sexy.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:21PM

Cover ArtStorm front
by Jim Butcher
Harry Dresden is a hero who’s having trouble paying his rent and keeping his car in repair. Butcher’s sense of humor keeps Dresden a classic character. Much better than the Sci Fi channel series.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:20PM

Cover ArtA Feast for crows
by George R. R. Martin
Martin is the master. No one is writing better fantasy today.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:18PM

Cover ArtShaman’s crossing
by Hobb, Robin
A very unique main character, especially for genre fiction. Hobb is always great at character development and this middle book of her latest series doesn’t disappoint.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:17PM

Cover ArtAnansi boys
by Neil Gaiman
I found it to be a stronger book than American Gods. Gaimain’s sense of humor and his love for his characters shines through.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:15PM

Cover ArtThe Ghost brigades
by John Scalzi
Fantastic book. Lots of action and interesting ideas. It’s a quick read. Science Fiction at it’s best.   posted May 8, 2007 at 5:13PM
