I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles Series #2)

The Throne of Fire - Rick Riordan Carter and Sadie, plus old and newly introduced gods &c., plus the Kanes' new students, continue their quest, which is a standard beat the bad gods/prevent apocalypse deal. I continue to enjoy the story while still disliking the narrative voices of the protagonists' "tapes." Perhaps I'd do better to read the 3rd as an audiobook for verisimilitude.
