Four Kinds of Wreckage (Savage Short Loves: Volume I) (Four Kinds of Wreckage (Savage Short Loves)) (Kindle Edition), Joel Seath
Fellow writer/blogger Joel Seath published a book of short-short story morsels back in February. I finally got the time in my current reading break.
Here’s my big Zon review
What a wonderful collection of short-short, bite-sized story morsels. This is a fabulous book to take on a train, plane, or ferry ride. The stories are short enough that you’ll never leave off mid-story. The author’s voice is compassionate, passionate, and deep at times. I enjoyed reading a few, then letting my head rest back while I lingered in my mind thinking about the moments in the stories. The author did a good job easing me into his voice. I found the last two-thirds of the book packed with emotion.
I encourage you to pick this up.
I am posting my Goodreads review of Charles Yallowitz’ first book of the Legends of Windemere series.
I thoroughly enjoyed “Beginning of a Hero (Legends of Windemere)”. This fantasy action novel engaged me from the beginning of the book, and maintained great action scenes throughout. I didn’t do any reading skip-overs like I’ve done with other books, because the author provides good description without wordiness. I think adult and young adult readers will enjoy the book. I’m certainly interested in the next book. I appreciated the author creating a believable fantasy world, and delivering an epic action filled adventure.
I also enjoyed the characters and their personalities. I’m a former WoW player (got to level 70 and quit before WotLK). It felt like I was progressing through exciting quests, with unique and surprising battle scene elements.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast paced and interesting fantasy action story, anyone who plays/played D&D, anyone who has played any RPG, LARPers, or anyone who wants an engaging fantasy action story. Windemere looks to be an interesting world. I look forward to all the adventures spawned from Windemere. 5 stars
