Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson

I warned you.  As I catch up on any and all the Brandon Sanderson I can get my onion-y hands on, there is going to be a lot of reviews featuring the author.  Last week I wrapped up my look at The Reckoners series with two reviews, Mitosis and Calamity.  Now, the G.O.B. is closing in on talking about all…

Calamity by Brandon Sanderson

The Reckoners series was just what I needed, at the right time.  After a bit of a reading slump to kick off ‘017, diving into Steelheart reinvigorated my need to read.  I savoured it all, taking my time, and reading a few other books and stories simultaneously.  Over the last year I have tried to…

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

​I may be going a tad out of order with this review, having done reviews for Steelheart and Firefight.  Recently I purchased a new eReader, a Kobo Aura One, it’s spectacular.  Along with such I was able to get a bundle of Brandon Sanderson short stories/novellas that were not included in November’s Ars Arcanum release.  Basically, I have…

Green Onion Live @ Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo / Mise en Place

9:00am- Good morning good folks and fellow geeks.  Today is the day I make my way down to the biggest comic-con in Western Canada.  Already some great things have come out of the Calgary Expo including a surprise appearance by Stan Lee, Todd McFarline dropping hints about the next Spawn movie, and a live recording…

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

I recently consumed and reviewed book one of the Reckoners Series, Steelheart.  Usually I try to mix things up and will not read the same author back to back.  When it comes to a Sanderson series though, there is a sense that no matter what other book I pick up all I will be able to…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 27 to Apr. 2, ‘017)

Happy Sunday, and happy April.  It is hard to believe we are already a quarter way through ‘017.  Going too fast.  Either way, glad to be through the tough cold months that start the year and into spring.  With that I offer a warm welcome to the Sunday Mise en Place, where everything with me…

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

I kicked 2017 off with a bit of a reading slump.  Stemming from one hard-to-read, disappointing novel out of the ol’ TBR, the aftermath was a struggle to reinvigorate the need to read. I searched for methods to combat it, like rereading major favourite, Ready Player One, which worked temporarily.  But, going on an adventure…

Top 10 Lost Items (that almost suck as bad as losing my phone)

Hello? Is this thing on? I have to say, it’s pure insanity how far technology zooms forward in a matter of years.  Recently my phone went on a vacation and stranded me with a shotty computer that I call ××××××; or computer.  Digging deep into my archives, I was able to retrieve an artifact.  A…

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Way back in June I did my review on the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.  It wasn’t nice, or delicate.  And though my feelings on the overall series have not changed.  It is still long, drawn out, full of unnecessary elements, and will inevitably lead to a disappointing ending.  I feel…

A Once Crowded Sky by Tom King

What does it take for a book to catch your attention?  Recently, I was in my favourite section, fantasy, of my favourite store, the book store, when I saw a book that blended two of my favourite genres, fantasy and superheroes.  Enough to allure me, I took my next step, research.  Oh, the future, where…
