Avengers: Age of Ultron

A few days ago, I managed to thrum together some friends and go watch the new Avengers Movie. The trailers had been interesting enough to make me want to watch it, even though I’m not that much of a fan of the first Avengers movie. The rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) were good…

The Departure by Neal Asher

The Departure by Neal Asher is the first book of the Owner series and was the first book I’ve read from Asher. I’d heard good things and The Departure didn’t disappoint me. Both its world-building and the protagonist are rare gems and well worth a trip into this dystopian future governed by bureaucrats starving the planet…

The Dark Defiles by Richard K. Morgan

My relation to the Land fit for Heroes series is a strange one, you could say. I’ve never read the first book. Some years ago I found The Cold Commands in a bookstore and bought it.

The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan

Brian McClellan’s debut series The Powder Mage Trilogy has managed to catch my interested and hold it easily through the three books and the multitude of short stories he’s written in the Powder Mage Universe. The last book, The Autumn Republic, came out a few days ago and finished the first trilogy in a flash of…

The Red Knight by Miles Cameron

The Red Knight by Miles Cameron is the first part of the Traitor Son Cycle. The book features a realistic approach to knights and the warfare of medieval times. The author’s Medieval History Degree shows and you won’t see another fantasy book telling you so much about knights. Reading this book, you’ll feel like a…

The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies

The Review contains slight spoilers for the movie. If you’ve read the book, you needn’t worry. If you haven’t, you don’t really need to worry either. I’ve recently managed to watch the third and final installment of what started as another amazing journey after the screening of The Lord of the Rings, but became a…
