One of the new type of LitRPG books with a story based on a role-playing game world, The Battle Begins, the first book in the Bushido Online series, provides a surprisingly engaging tale about a blind fighter struggling to recapture his life after an injury.
Although By Fire Above takes on a more serious tone than the first Signal Airship book did, it retains its sass and humor at key points, and of course the unique world where combat is fought from the bridge of fantastical, powerful airships.
Book thirteen of the Demon Accords, Summer Reign by John Conroe, may be the best yet of an already in-depth and imaginative series that takes us deep inside the Fairie kingdom. It seems the Queens of Summer and Winter are not quite finished with main character Declan O’Carroll.
The Evil that Men Do is a political thriller by author Robert Gleason that is packed with action. Set in modern day, many current political leaders are represented under thinly-veiled pseudonyms. This makes for a realistic read that is not too far off from actual events taking place in the real world.
Forgotten Soldiers is an action-packed tale of resistance fighting after America falls victim to an oppressive cult. Think if Far Cry 5 took place across the entire nation, instead of just one county in Montana. Written how a video game plays, its action from start to finish.
William Wilde and the Necrosed is an enjoyable, if somewhat typical, urban fantasy set within the background of a high school drama. This brand new series also has the big advantage of veteran voice actor Nick Podehl helping to push the plot in audiobook format.
Having jumped late into reviewing another series of Steven Brust’s books, we were excited to catch up with the new Good Guys novel, which is billed as a completely standalone tale. It doesn’t disappoint for action, plotting, quirkiness or comedy.
What could go wrong when dating both an Angel and a Demon, much less taking them both home for Christmas dinner with the family? Personal Demons continues the interesting saga of our hero Alex as he deals with divine visitations, supernatural enemies, and the echoes of reincarnation.
Sailing in on the popularity of the World War II genre, The Midnight Front novel bridges the gap between historical fiction and urban fantasy, adding sorcery and magic to the WWII storytelling arsenal.
The sequel to The Pillars of Creation novel, Destiny of Dragons is the third book in the Legacy of Dragons series by Jack Campbell. This one ends the series in a big way. It’s a great trilogy, and we can’t wait until more stories are available.
