Every broken world, no matter how damaged it is, can be fixed, and the only price to pay is a human sacrifice... In this mind bending horror story that effortlessly explores the concept of interdimensional traveling, demons, and dark magic, "The Book of Accidents" places a tight knit family in the center of it all, testing how resilient the bonds of unconditional love is against the encroaching, twisted shadow of pain and evil that is being forcibly thrust upon them.
A worthy, terrifying read; I am forever a fan of Chuck Wendig! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

The first in the Court of Thorns and Roses series, this book has everything you could want from a New Adult fantasy, and Maas has cherry-picked the best elements from the genre to create a novel with a compelling protagonist, descriptive prose, expert world-building, captivating conflict, and a passionate central romance. Filled with action, danger, and magic, and inspired by Beauty and the Beast, East of the Sun West of the Moon, and the folktale Tamlin, you'll be yearning for the next in the series before you've even finished the first. ~ Reviewed by Virginia Edinger

As I turned the final page of this book, I wondered to myself how I was possibly going to put into words my love for this novel. She Who Became the Sun is a politically driven alternate history about the rise of the first emperor of the Ming dynasty. It features some of the most morally gray characters I have ever read in literature, of which their actions and relationships had me constantly turning the page. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Published: Ten Speed Press - October 27th, 2020

The heart of Dungeons and Dragons is community, and this official addition to the D&D canon makes the gaming table a little wider---and a lot more appetizing. Heroes’ Feast draws most of its recipes from meals mentioned in actual campaign worlds and materials, and sorts them by the cultures of in-game races, like Humans, Elves, Dwarves, and Halflings. At times it feels like there may actually be more pages spent on colorful descriptions of D&D lore than on actual recipes (which, if you’ve ever played, is fairly true-to-form), but this 200-page tome really is brimming with serious and delicious dishes. Gather your companions, pitch your tent, and dig into some Bangers and Smash, Cherrybread, or Iron Rations. ~ Reviewed by Digby Baker-Porazinski
