Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles, #3)

Ships of Merior - Janny Wurts Arithon apprenticed six years with the Master Bard Halliron. Six years of respite in the War of Light and Shadow forced upon him and his half-brother by the Mistwraith's curse. Circumstances surrounding Dakar's antics converge and conspire against Arithon's studies. The conflagration that resolves the dilemma left me bereft. I struggled to feel compassion for Lysaer, whose rigid adherence to royal justice borders on the inhumane. To an outside observer, it appears obvious his motivations and actions are influenced if not outright controlled by the Mistwraith's curse. His ignorance and lack of magical instruction and discipline play right into the plans of the Mistwraith. I look forward to continuing this epic fantasy tale in the second volume of The Ships of Merior in the very near future.
