Breach of Contract, written by Danielle Palli, is book 2 in The Data Collectors series, and I enjoyed the story about as much as I did in the first book. Most of the characters you'll meet in this story feel warm and genuine, and meeting them again was like meeting a bunch of old friends.
Much of the story involves the political wranglings of varied species trying to take over the… Read More Reviewed by: Morgan Hobbes Reviewed on: 15th of April, 2021

It's written at a level similar to the early Harry Potter novels (more on this later), where even though it could easily be enjoyed by children, adults will find a… Read More Reviewed by: Morgan Hobbes Reviewed on: 3rd of April, 2021
The (Sort of) Dark Mage, book 1 of the Waldo Rabbit series by Nelson Chereta had me, right up until the ending, which it completely whiffed.
Not a "Game of Thrones season 8" level whiff, but enough of one to have me seriously considering if I should bother continuing with the series at all. First off, the book just ends. No big build-up with a massive payoff, no stakes being raised,… Read More Reviewed by: Morgan Hobbes Reviewed on: 28th of March, 2021
