Small Favour by Jim Butcher

So on book ten, that’s a fair bit into the series now. As per usual there are two current predicaments for Harry. The first is that the Summer Court is out to get Harry and he is not sure why. The other part is that Mab wants Harry to rescue Marcone and so calls in …

White Night by Jim Butcher

It’s getting harder to review these the further you go into the series. This one is mostly concerned with the White Court and a series of murders of lesser practitioners of magic around a few US cities. All the signs point to Thomas but Harry doesn’t believe it to be the case and there must …

Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher

Another good book in the series. I consider this entry to be in the ‘main’ storyline of the series, if there is one, though I could be wrong. There are two threads, the first being Harry asked to look into what is happening in faerie to see why the Winter and Summer courts are not …

The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison

Maia is youngest son of the Elven emperor, who has spent most of his life banished from the court as his mother was a goblin. When a tragedy occurs to the emperor and his other sons, Maia unexpectedly finds himself the new emperor and has to deal with the ramifications of this, the intrigue of …

Imager’s Battalion by L.E. Modesitt Jr.

After the battle at the end of the last book, this one is basically an invasion of Bovaria to oust their ruler. Quaeryt has been made a sub-commander and has been given a certain amount of regular soldiers as well as a company of imager’s. His job is to train them up and help any …

Princeps by L.E. Modesitt Jr

The second book in this series starts off a few months after the events of the first book. Married now to Bhayar’s sister Vaelora, Quaeryt is a princeps (a kind of second in command to the governor) but is soon dispatched as governor of a city that has just been partially destroyed by a volcanic …

Scholar by L.E. Modesitt Jr

A bit slow to start but still good. This is the first book of a five part series following Quaeryt as his friendship with the ruler of Telaryn, a country within what will become Solidar, starts to move his status in the world from a scholar to something much more. He has hidden Imager abilities …

The Magic Engineer by L.E. Modesitt Jr

One of my favourite Modesitt books. This is the third book published of the Recluce Saga and is within the central/later timeline as the series covers roughly two thousand years of history. It is a standalone though there is a later companion duology that covers some of the same story from the ‘bad’ guys viewpoint. …

Prince of Demons by Mickey Zucker Reichert

An odd book and I’m still not sure what to think of it. It starts where the previous left off and our companions are still looking to get Griff put on the Bearnian throne. From there the plot kind of meanders with a lot of space been taken by the relationships between our main POV’s …

Beyond Ragnarok By Mickey Zucker Reichert

So after the first series ended without showing any of the actual Ragnarok this book makes up for by starting with it. It is just the prologue though and the rest of the book is set something like three hundred years after it. By the way I think with the title none of this a …
