Fun and realistic fantasy heroes

NPCs is a refreshingly different story in a fantasy world. There are several major reasons that this book is different.  The main characters start out as non-player characters AKA NPCs that live in a world as regular working joes that have to put up with the actions of fantasy heroes. They also become heroes that don't fit the fantasy stereotypes for their gender or race and instead based on their abilities or personalities. Finally, the story starts out as part of a role playing game being played by some bad role players and ran by a dungeon master that...

Good background story and action but not overly memorable

Court of Nightfall is a difficult book to review, especially after waiting over a month since I listened to it. The story starts out with a young girl, Scarlett, who lives a fairly normal life except for the fact that there is a locked building in her backyard that her parents tell her is off limits. What girl is going to listen when her parents tell her something mysterious is off limits?   I liked most of Scarlett's background story but after that the story bounces around with plenty of action but not enough continuity to make...

Megg Jensen does for orcs what R.A. Salvatore did for dark elves

Chaos Awakens by Megg Jensen is a great epic fantasy novel that I very much enjoyed. There are plenty of interesting characters with the main characters being a female orc assassin, a human male priest, and a female orc princess. They form an unusual team as humans and orcs head towards a war at a time they need to team-up against a godly enemy. There are plenty of intimate moments and character development mixed in with action and epic threats to the world.    This book is everything that a good fantasy novel should be and reminded...

There are much better Muirwood books; shallow and uninspired

Legends of Muirwood is a very good fantasy series, regretfully the last book in the series, The Scourge of Muirwood is the worst book of the three.   The Scourge of Muirwood is a quick read but it wasn't very memorable. Lia travels to another abbey where she finds her captured love, Colvin. Other than them being apart most of the book the series concludes with a surprise yet uninspiring transformation that Lia goes through.   I give it three out of five stars and suggest that those that started the series read this final...

Lia the Wretched becomes a hunter and learns more of herself

One of the best compliments I can give for this series, Legends of Muirwood, is that it is one of the few fantasy series I have finished in awhile. This series made me want to come back for more and I wasn't disappointed.  Blight of Muirwood is the second book in the series and the main character, Lia, continues to mature and grow in her abilities. She is now the hunter for Muirwood Abbey which faces destruction by the forces of the evil Queen. Lia also has the issue that she is a wretched and...
