Review: The Bands of Mourning

“I’m wondering if every person I pass has similar depths, and if there’s any way to avoid the mistake of judging them so shallowly that I’m rocked when they show their true complexity.” ~ Brandon Sanderson, The Bands of Mourning

Review: Gardens of the Moon

"Slowly, Whiskeyjack studied each man in his squad. He saw the caring in their eyes, the open offer to the friendship he'd spent years suppressing. All that time pushing them away, pushing everyone away, and the stubborn bastards just kept on coming back." ~ Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon

Review: A Reaper at the Gates

Team Review: The Two Towers

“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
~  J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

“Um, sure?” said Val.  
“It is sublime,” said Ripper. “You must not alter it until you’ve infuriated as many imbeciles as you can.”
