Exactly what I thought it was

4 stars

This was exactly what I thought it would be. I like to grab one or two of these types of books to simply see if the story is worth following. Read the first Reacher book, and a few Vince Flynn books. Neither really stuck, unlike Orphan series from Hurwitz. This was more entertaining than those, but really don't feel a need to continue the series.

This book was really good. A completely different voice for Sanderson, but fun to read. I’m not sure if I like the audiobook’s narrator for this book, although I love Michael Kramer. Excited to see what he has in store next in the Secret Series.

Interesting book. There were some really interesting things to look at and stuff to take advantage of but there was more here that I was unsure if I 100% agreed with as well. Liked that is stoked more thoughts than previous reads.

In Pilot Pirx, Lem has created an irresistibly likable character: an astronaut who gives the …

Better than I expected. The newest translation did a fantastic job of keeping my interest. I really wanted more. It feels like Jaws many times where the lack of details is more intense than just telling the reader. Going to look into more of Lem.

This is probably the best novella of the 3. There was a real progress of soul and journey of the main character. Really looking forward to Sanderson’s next entry.

Dark Horse (2022, Thorndike Press) 4 stars

Review of 'Dark Horse' on 'Goodreads'

Liked this one as a personal dig into X and how he loves forward as a human not just an assassin. Looking forward to how it moves forward although not super happy about the epilogue and how it implies the direction, feels like a step back in narrative direction.

Nolyn (2021, Grim Oak Press) 5 stars

After more than five hundred years of exile, the heir to the empyre is wary …

Really enjoyed this book. Not sure if it’s because I’m in a different place or due to the author taking fan notes, but this opener is significantly better than any of the previous series books. First Empyre was ok, and many of the people are referenced here but this is the book we wanted to read. Pure Sullivan proses, concise and yet descriptive, and loads of fun and heart.
