Audiobook Review – DRUNKEN FIREWORKS by Stephen King (Narr. Tim Sample)

Stephen King has a new short story out only available in audiobook from Simon and Schuster, narrated by Tim Sample, and it’s called Drunken Fireworks. After having experienced the audiobook of his novel 11/22/63, and finding it one of the best I’ve heard, I was excited to see what King had in mind with this […]

Audiobook Review: The Undying: Shades by Ethan Reid (Narr. Candace Thaxton)

The Undying: Shades is a strong improvement from book one in an already good option for fans of post-apocalyptic horror. The character-focus engaged more, and strengths in the first book showed maturity and fine tuning. The series still lacks a little in so far as it isn’t among the best post-apocalyptic horror I’ve read, but […]

Audiobook Review: THE UNDYING by Ethan Reid (Narr. Candace Thaxton)

The Undying fulfilled most of the expectations created by its Eiffel Tower surrounded by undead hands lifted and ready to feast. Ethan Reid wrote an apocalyptic experience in France as authentic as I could have hoped for. The narrator, Candace Thaxton, vocalizes French accents with flair and keeps us grounded in each character’s personality. When […]

Review – Mad Max: Fury Road

With lots of enticing Scifi movies coming out this summer, I took a chance on the surprising praise for the newest installment in the Mad Max franchise –and I’m so glad I did! It’s been so long since my mom’s infatuation with Mel Gibson led me to watching the older versions of Mad Max. All […]

Audiobook Review: TINKERMAGE by Kenny Soward (Narr. Scott Aiello)

The first book in the GnomeSaga, Rough Magick, introduced us to a tinkerer who was unaware of the worlds changing device she’s created. That story showed her accidental discovery by way of a crooked 1st Wizard and her subsequent imprisonment. While she languishes in jail, her bug-addicted brother has been sent to fight the front-line […]

Audiobook Review: ROUGH MAGICK by Kenny Soward (Narr. Scott Aiello)

My life was changed when, at the age of thirteen, a friend showed me Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis. My first adventure into living dragons, half-elven heroes, knights, princesses, and more captivated my imagination with the joy of discovery and wonder. Some of the characters, like the mage, Raistlin, had […]
