Review – Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

Review – Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

When I first started reading Tash Hearts Tolstoy, I really wasn’t sure how I felt about the characters. The story was great, and I loved how it showed the negative side to vlogging (and social media in general). The only problem I really had with it was that I couldn’t decide how I felt about a lot of the characters, but I guess that’s life […]

Review – The Dinosaur Knights by Victor Milan

I am happy to report that I enjoyed The Dinosaur Knights more than the first book. How much more? Well, that’s up for debate. The story picks up soon after the end of The Dinosaur Lords following our main heroes in their various travels. And here is where I started losing interest in those characters.

Review – The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan

I had such high hopes for The Dinosaur Lords. While it’s marketed as Jurassic Park meets Game of Thrones, I was more excited about an “adult” version of Dinotopia. You known, dinosaurs and humans co-existing and all that (with maybe a bit of epic fantasy battle scenes thrown in for good measure). The story emerges from a place called Paradise. It’s never made clear if this is a fictional place […]
