What’s On My Bookshelf: The Penitent Assassin

Welcome to What’s On My Bookshelf. When I was contemplating creating a new blog, one of the things I wanted to incorporate was a middle grade/YA Sci-Fiand Fantasy book critique section. Three things stopped me.

  1. First: It may take me two weeks to read a novel. Sometimes less, sometimes more… but I’m not up to cramming my way through a book a week just to keep up a book reviewblog.
  2. Second: I don’t always read young adult science fiction and fantasy books. In fact, I recently read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. (Loved it—I might add!)
  3. Third: What if I hate a book? A book that some really nice person  put their heart and soul into? Could I give it a bad review? Don’t think so…

As a compromise, I’ve created this page: A running commentary, if you will, rather than a critique of what I happen to be reading.

That said, if you love gritty, hardcore fantasy and adventure, check out a new eBook entitled: The Penitent Assassin, written by my friend, Shawn Wickersheim. He’s an amazing up and coming writer. So amazing, that despite what I said up above, I just had to write a review.

The Penitent Assassin is a nonstop fantasy adventure that is definitely dark, but at times also laugh-out-loud funny. Wickersheim may be a new author, but he has a wicked way with words, world building, and creating memorable lines and characters. He weaves just the right amount of magic and mayhem, as well as plenty of sex, lust, and greed. Download your copy at AmazonSmashwordsBarnes and Noble or the iBook store.

Next week I’ll be talking about The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I have lots to say about this book! Until then…
