Review: Professional Integrity

Professional Integrity Professional Integrity by Michael J. Sullivan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the Riyria books by Michael J. Sullivan. I enjoyed this novella as well as the other stories and novels in this world, but I suppose you can say that the rating here is lower than the others because the bar has been set pretty high. That said, this was pretty darn good. I enjoyed the banter of Royce and Hadrian, and it was great to see them handling another heist that didn't go as planned.

Review: Dune

Dune Dune by Frank Herbert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It took me a few months to get through this, but it was my third or forth reading. It's still a great book, and most of the gap between readings was caused by real life and other books that I didn't already know.

Still, it's good to revisit.

Review: Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Down Town

Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Down Town Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Down Town by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free ebook copy of this graphic novel from the publisher through NetGalley.

Stars and stones! It's great to get a new story in the Harry Dresden series. One thing that I really like about these graphic novels, is that Butcher himself is involved in the writing. That makes the characters and pacing fit what fans of the longtime series are used to.

The art is pretty darn good too, capturing the characters in a way that's close to what I'd pictured them as by reading the books.

This story wasn't as solid as most of the novels, but it still made for a great afternoon diversion, and a little something to tide us over until Peace Talks.
