Consider Phelbas by Iain M Banks

How have I neglected this author’s work for so long! Great start to The Culture Series. Well written SciFi from the 80’s that translates well through the decades. This book will be a good read a hundred years from now. The characters are well thought out and very human and the story has a realistic “anything can happen” feel to it.

The author manages to capture something very true to the human spirit within this work. Something many authors try to do and fail. This story will stay with you long after you’ve finished the book.

Well worth your time to read!


Reign Of Ash A Strong And Intriguing Story

Reign Of Ash is a strong story and a worthy sequel to Ice Forged. Gail Z Martin does a wonderful job of not just continuing the momentum of the series but also building upon it. The world she creates and the characters she peoples it with are believable and enjoyable. The concept of a post apocalyptic medieval society makes for a very intriguing story. I truly enjoyed reading this story and am eagerly awaiting the next book!
