Rereading Wheel of Time: Fires of Heaven (Book 5)

Nations fall. The tower breaks. And the seals on the dark one’s prison are crumbling at an alarming rate. In my rereading of book 5 of the Wheel of Time, I felt a bit impatient with one of the subplots — Elayne and Nynaeve trek across the world after dealing with black aja members in […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Shadow Rising (Book 4)

ETA: Check out the clip from the audio version of this book at the bottom of my review. I’ve been reading the series in audio format, and if you’re into that kind of thing, you should definitely give this one a try. My trek back through the world of the Wheel of Time continues with […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Dragon Reborn (Book 3)

Years ago I heard that Jordan initially planned this 14-volume series as a trilogy. Rereading it, I think that perhaps, at the end of the first book, he might have had a chance at that. It would have involved him taking the easy and simpler road, but it would have been possible. By the end […]

Secrets and Lies Edits are In

Edits are in for Secrets and Lies, book 2 of my Cassie Scot series. I know, I know…you’re all still waiting on #1. Well, just know that #2 won’t be far behind. I got a new editor for this book, and I’m quite pleased about it. She’s found a number of issues, one significant, most […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Great Hunt (Book 2)

My journey back through the 14-volume Wheel of Time Series continues with book 2, The Great Hunt. I think this is where the series really begins to take off. Rand is already no longer the boy he was when it all began just a few months earlier, but he still fears and mistrusts his destiny. […]

Interview with Author Shah Wharton

Today, I’m joined by Shah Wharton, author of a new adult fantasy novel, Finding Esta… Shah, the “new adult” label is a relatively recent book category. How would you define the term? And what made you decide to write new adult, as opposed to young adult or adult? Actually, Heather from Buried in Books told […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World (Book 1)

It seems so many years ago that I got caught up in this larger than life series. I discovered it during my college years, nearly 15 years ago, and read the books faithfully through book 9. And though I had complaints, I didn’t give up on it even then, I simply could not remember enough […]

The Hot Seat

Although I often picture them that way in my head. You can’t always accept the first thing a character tells you as gospel truth. […]
