Gaming. Yeah, we’ve dabbled. From Tuesday raids in World of Warcraft to Friday clan nights in Call of Duty, there’s nothing like fighting the good fight with 5 to 40 of your best friends chilling in voice chat. But if you watched any of the E3 broadcasts this year, you’ll know there are few fandoms as enthusiastic as the Gears of War crowd. Gears 5, Gears Pop!, Gears Tactics… the screams just kept coming. Gears readers will be glad to know the franchise is producing books as fast as it is gaming titles. If not faster.

Aspho Fields is the official prequel, which has us pretty stoked. We’ve always been suckers for backstory. Action and danger are so much more powerful when you’re invested in the characters, and that’s just as true for games as it is for books. Imagine how much richer the gaming experience would be if we went into it knowing the characters inside and out already. How much more thrilling the victories, and how much more heart wrenching the losses. Sounds intense, right? We think so, too, and now’s our chance to find out.

Pick up Gears of War Aspho Fields for just $1.99 for a limited time!

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

Like Wine & Chocolate for the Reader’s Palate

Trained as an elite warrior from childhood, the elven crown prince, Flintathriël, fights to end a war that began before he was born. With the aid of his betrothed, Sairalindë, a skilled mage and dragon rider in her own right, he must find the Book of Souls–an ancient and mysterious tome rumored to have belonged to the god Hath’Raal.

But when the missing book turns up in the hands of Mnuvae, the bastard daughter who believes the kingdom to be rightfully hers, Flintathriël and Sairalindë must defend each other–and their people–against a far greater force than they bargained for…


REVIEW:

The Last Dragon Rider is a ruby of a book–the magic of firelight captured impossibly in stone. Roughly half a carat in weight (it is not a long read), the color is exquisite. The spark of romance and adventure sizzles within its depths.

An Instant Classic! One for Your Permanent Collection!

We love books. In fact, we adore them. We don’t have time to read as many as we would like, so we only finish the ones we love. And we only review the ones we finish. As a result, we give out a lot of four- and five-star ratings, and we mean every one of them.

But every once in a while, a book comes along that truly stands out. A book (or series) that belongs with the likes of The Hobbit, or Ender’s Game, or every book Anne McCaffrey ever wrote. A book we insist on adding to our permanent collection in autographed hardcover.

Windwitch is just such a book.
