Storm Front

•November 30, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I’ve heard a lot about The Dresden Files and I finally decided to pick up the first book in the series, Storm Front.
Harry Dresden – Wizard
Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or
Other Entertainment.

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a wizard and with that comes a few problems. For one, technology doesn’t like to work correctly around him, the more complex the technology the more it goes awry. Another are non believers.

Harry is called in to help the police with a murder case, the murder weapon? Magic. While working the case he rises his own life to help bring the murderer to justice but things are deeper then they seem.

I really enjoyed this book and one of the things I love about it is Jim Butcher is not afraid to put his characters through hell. I’d definitely recommend this book to any sci-fi fan.

And Then She Was Gone

•November 14, 2010 • 2 Comments

Normally when it comes to reading I like my stories in book form as opposed to E-books, that being said when I heard about And Then She Was Gone by J.D. Sawyer I though I’d set my hatred of the medium aside and I’m glad I did. And Then She Was Gone is a mystery novel with a modern feel. Clarke Lantham is a PI with some tricks up his sleeve! From using cellphones to track someone to hacking private facebook messages. Being a mystery novel I don’t want to give any details for fear of giving something away. If you enjoy fast paced action and mystery give this E-Book a try. At only $3.20 for a copy you’ve got nothing to lose.

The Lost Years of Merlin

•November 8, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I recently picked up The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron because I remembered reading it as a kid and liking it but more importantly that it was part of a series and I had never read any of the others.

In this book Emrys washes up on the shore near a town called Caer Vedwyd along with Branwen, a woman who claims to be his mother. Not remembering anything of his life before this point he has many questions that he wishes to find the answer to, the name Emrys never felt right to him and he didn’t not believe it was his true name. During his childhood he starts to uncover the power within himself. These being superstitious times Branwen is pulled from their hut and accused of witchcraft because of her knowledge of healing herbs and poultices. Emrys saves her life but in doing so loses his eyesight. This is the start of his journey to become the man of myth and legend we know of today.

I didn’t want to give to much away but I love how the author wrote this story. He paints a very vivid picture with all he describes. Very creative and entertaining. I love that he did this whole book on Merlin, a man as we know has untold power, without relying on magic to pull the story along. In fact in this first book Merlin is afraid to use his powers because the last time he did it ended up costing him his eyesight. This was an epic tale about the search for who you are and where you are from. I highly recommend it to any kid or adult who Ioves fantasy and the Arthurian Legend.

Metamor City fan-fiction

•April 28, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Over the summer Metamor City had a story contest where you’d write a short story for Chris Lester and if it was good enough he’d record and narrate it for the feed. We are finally getting to hear some of these stories now and I’m thinking of trying my hand at a story in the Metamor universe. It’s too late for the contest but we’ll see how it goes. If I finish it and it’s half decent I’ll send it to Chris Lester and see if he likes it. Who knows, soon I may have my own story up for everyone to hear.

Going mobile

So I recently got an iTouch and have been playing around with various apps so I figured I’d get the wordpress app and try to keep up this blog going. Hopefully the podcasts will give me more to write about!

Down From Ten is a podio-book I’ve been listening to for a while now. After a long wait the last episode, episode 25, is complete! I just finished listening and all I can say is wow. Simply amazing and has an ending just as great as the journey! It will keep you guessing. Down From Ten is by far the best complete Podio-Book I’ve heard. Ever.

Listen now and thank me later!

Hard times

•March 31, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Recently I’ve been having a very hard time getting words down on paper or screen. Not many people seem to even see this page and even fewer leave comments or feed back. It’s kind of discouraging in honesty.

activity within the group of podcasters I listen to has been down for quite a while. Episodes are taking longer to be put out and it’s mostly because of the author’s personal lives. It can’t be helped. There was a death in the podcasting family recently as well and a lot of focus has been on helping with that. Tee Morris’ Wife died of the flu leaving him alone and his daughter, Sonic Boom as she is publicly known, motherless. They started a Trust for her to help with college and other expenses while that may be a while off if you are able please visit chip in.
