I am a writer of science fiction and fantasy and also an avid reader of (mostly) the same. Expect to see reviews from me of speculative fiction books from well known and less well known authors. (Many of my reviews WILL be cross posted from Goodreads).

Blood's Pride

Blood's Pride - Evie Manieri A solid read, but did not stay with me after I finished it - good for voracious readers of epic fantasy, but does not cross the line into an excellent book.

The Norlander fantasy race is interesting (somewhere between vampires and drow) and the world is well conceived, but some of the characters seem superfluous and it is never quite explained how a Norlander and Shadari can have a child when they can't touch each other (Characters even call it impossible, but it's never explained).
