  • The Siren Depths by Martha Wells Review of The Siren Depths by Martha Wells

    The Siren Depths is the third volume in The Books of the Raksura by Martha Wells, whose work has been nominated for the Nebula Award. This science fiction/fantasy series has become one of my favorite recent book discoveries, both for its original setting of the Three Worlds and its endearing characters. For this reason, I was glad to hear that Martha Wells will be writing four novellas set in the same world that will be published as ebooks. At least the […]

  • The Serpent Sea by Martha Wells Women in SF&F Month: Martha Wells

    Today I’m excited to have a post about the Raksura race, their society, and their gender roles from Martha Wells!

The Cloud Roads ended up being one of my favorite books I read last year for its sympathetic main character, creative worldbuilding, and absorbing storyline. I absolutely loved it, and I’m definitely planning to check […]

    This week I bought two books – one is a new book that is one of my most anticipated books of 2012 and the other is an older book I hadn’t heard of until recently. (And hopefully I will get that review of The Spirit Rebellion up on Monday – I got a bit distracted this week.) The Serpent Sea by Martha Wells The Serpent Sea is the second of the Books of the Raksura, following The Cloud Roads. It […]

  • The Serpent Sea by Martha Wells Books of 2012: The Serpent Sea by Martha Wells

    Instead of writing one huge post of all the books I’m looking forward to in 2012, I decided to highlight some of these books in their own posts throughout the rest of this year. That way I can include as much information as I want about each one without it being an 8-mile long post and can just compile a list of links to these posts at the end of the year. The first of these books I decided to […]

  • The Cloud Roads by Martha Wells The Leaning Pile of Books

    After a couple of weeks without books (!), this week brought 1 ARC, 1 finished review copy, and 3 I bought myself with a gift card.  Both the review copies are books I’ve already talked about since I picked up copies of each at this year’s Book Expo America.  So if you are interested in reading more about Blood Rights (House of Comarre #1) by Kristen Painter or Theft of Swords (Riyria Revelations #1) by Michael J. Sullivan, there’s more […]
