Did I mention I also blog?
I try to do a book review every week unless I'm on "vacation" or I get overwhelmed by something. I read all sorts of stuff but mostly books with a fantasy and mystery element. Actually, I consider most mysteries as much fantasies as Tolkien's writings. You can read my latest blog at Fantasy Thoughts from My Easy Chair.
Below are a few books I've enjoyed reading.
After I retired, I switched from writing non-fiction to writing fantasy. The first world I created was an alternative Britainia featuring half-elves. Before you run, I'd like to say my stories explored the social and political effects of genetic drift on a hybrid population. I just happened to chose elves because my old man had tons of books in his professional library on both Britain and the Fae, enabling me to avoid the library. Most of these stories, including a completed novel are still in my computer because I got side-tracked by Andor's people's struggles to save their world from demons. They are listed among my Andor stories, and featured Mariah and Renna.
Someday, I hope to get back to editing the some 500,000 words I have written. My reviews indicate maybe I should.
” Wonderful action packed story with a cool twist.”
“unique and fresh twist” on fantasy"
"a new adjestment to a classic race"
Pillar Beccon travels across Andor to discover her mother's mysterious past. But danger is never far away as a demon seeks to destroy her.
An orphaned null without a hint of magic, Pillar can't remember ever belonging anywhere, especially not in the Freemage commune where she grew up. After she graduates from high school, she jumps at the chance to learn why her mother ran away from her family.
During an accidental encounter, Grylerrque, a surviving commander from The Demon Wars, recognizes what Pillar is and decides to feed the girl's life force to her clutch. The demon sends her minions to capture the girl. Pillar escapes with a help of an unexpected allay, only to learn she was pulled out of the frying pan and thrown into the fire.
Running from Demons tells the story of Pillar's search to find a place to call her own. The book continues the chronicles of Andor, a land where the mundane world clashes with one of magic and demons from another plane prey. If you love paranormal stories of discovery and mayhem, this is the story for you."
