The Captain’s Log – the twisted ones (T. Kingfisher)

Ahoy there me mateys!  I continue the foray into this author's works and am so loving it.  I actually loved this fantasy horror novel even better than the hollow places.  Like that book, this one is inspired by prior works in the genre.  Like that read, I didn't read the original before tackling this one.  … Continue reading The Captain’s Log – the twisted ones (T. Kingfisher)

The Captain’s Log – a wizard’s guide to defensive baking (T. Kingfisher)

Ahoy there me mateys!  Yesterday I gushed about castle hangnail and then immediately after finishing it, me hold for this book came in.  Glee!  Another book by an author I am adoring.  The author's T.

The Captain’s Log – how rory thorne destroyed the multiverse (K. Eason)

Ahoy there me mateys!  The lovely cover drew me attention and the quirky premise hooked me.  This is the first book in a duology that has fairy tale tropes but takes place in space.  And, seriously, it so worked for me. The tone (kinda silly) and storytelling style (omnipresent narrator) did take some getting used … Continue reading The Captain’s Log – how rory thorne destroyed the multiverse (K. Eason)

The Captain’s Log – the lore of prometheus (Graham Austin-King)

The Captain’s Log – the lost steersmen (Rosemary Kirstein)

Ahoy there mateys!  A long while back in 2017, Matey Sarah @ brainfluff reminded me that this series existed.  I had the two books in omnibus form and they were five stars reads.  Then Matey Sarah told me there were two more books in the series!  So I recently I re-read the omnibus and then moved … Continue reading The Captain’s Log – the lost steersmen (Rosemary Kirstein)
