Rhythm of War – Cosmere Crescendo

Seems only yesterday I reviewed The Way of Kings with the wide-eyed wonder of a freshly minted Cosmere initiate. Now, I've read all of the currently released Cosmere material, and I’m all in. Before I jump into my Rhythm of War review, I recommend you check out our full Cosmere Reading Order Guide.  Where do…

White Sand – Welcome To Sandyland

Welcome to Taldain, the Cosmere’s sandy desert planet! I’ve long basked in Brandon Sanderson’s web of interconnected fantasy worlds, saving the graphic novel adaptation for last. But rest assured, this story still has value even if you aren’t already immersed in the Cosmere. If you are, there’s a lot to love. Not for lack of…

Sandman Volume Five: A Game Of You – Macabre Obscurity

I’m quickly approaching the halfway point in my Sandman journey, and what a ride it’s been. Neil Gaiman's graphic novel series delights as often as it makes me go “Huh?” This particular installment, A Game of You, is distinctly the latter. I enjoyed the experience of reading A Game of You, though I can’t pinpoint whether…

Sandman Volume Four: Season Of Mists – Welcome To Hell

Onward and upward, further into the land of dreams than we’ve ever gone before! My trek into the world of Morpheus and his mythical cohort continues with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman: Season Of Mists. This volume feels sprawling and vast, and it offers a hellishly good time. That said, it ain’t perfect. But I’ll get to…

As Sanderson’s largest and most expansive piece of writing, the series has previously avoided clear ties to the bigger picture, instead choosing to dole out small nods and vignettes teasing the…

Sandman Volume Three: Dream Country – Sleepy Shorts

Cue the lullabies, folks. I’m back with another Sandman review! Today, we take a break from the large story arcs that made Neil Gaiman a comic-book writer to be reckoned with. Sandman Volume Three: Dream Country regales us with four diminutive dreamy tales. These snappy interludes add new layers and depths to the world depicted…

Warbreaker – Reading Rainbow

Another day, another Brandon Sanderson review from yours truly. My exploration of the Cosmere took me to the colorful world of Hallandren and Idris, where Breath brings objects to life and political strife could erupt into all-out war. Warbreaker is a Brandon Sanderson novel, all right, and it’s a characteristically excellent one, to boot.  T’Telir,…

Legends & Lattes – Cozy Fantasy At Its Finest

Once in a while, a book comes along that doesn’t burden itself with the lofty expectations that so often run rampant through the fantasy genre. These books don’t require vast, epic worlds or heartbreaking stories. Instead, they’re content to revel in the warmth of friendship and love and Travis Baldree’s Legends & Lattes is my…
