Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

A Reaper of Stone - Mark Gelineau, Joe King

I got sucked into another sample, so now I'm reading 3 Fantasy stories when I had said I needed a break from Fantasy.


The funny thing is I'm enjoying these two more than the popular one that came off my tbr.


It just goes to show that there is good Fantasy writing in the indie slush. You just have to vet the samples.
