Kristen Reads Too Much


Not as Dark as Dark Fantasy Fantasy (Epic, etc)

Not super dark…. but still kind of dark? This was going to just say Epic Fantasy, but I’m not sure these are all epic either :D

Review: The Emerald Blade by Steven Kelliher

Ohhh Landkist. I'm glad that you are back, because I'm ready for some more crazy fire-sword wielding elemental adventures! Also, I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review of it. :D... Continue Reading →

Review: The Iron Circlet by Phil Tucker

Ohhhh Chronicles of the Black Gate. The kind of books that, upon hearing that the 4th book in the series is released, I immediately drop everything I'm doing and pick it up. Yep, that happened. Witcher 3 - dropped. Other... Continue Reading →

Review: The Cycle of Arawn by Edward W. Robertson

Yeeep, the whole thing. An entire trilogy (I promise I won't spoil any of it.) That's how this audiobook comes. Firstly, I wasn't expecting to actually sit here and listen to the entire thing at once (I didn't. I have... Continue Reading →

Review: Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Review: The Reborn King by Michael R. Miller

Normally I have so much more time for audiobooks over physical books but it's been the opposite this year so far. However, once I had a chance to start this one, I *made* time to listen to the rest. Oh yes.... Continue Reading →

Review: The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley

To begin, I should probably let you know that I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Just FYI or whatever. I'm still going to be honest AF and probably definitely curse a lot. 😀 Merciless.... Continue Reading →

Review: The Empire of the Dead by Phil Tucker

I picked this one up on its release day, being a pretty big fan of Tucker's Chronicles of the Black Gate series. This one intrigued me because it was described to me as "necro-Sumerian Ocean's Eleven fantasy" which, let's all... Continue Reading →
