Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones. The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime!

Glad so many people liked this book because it bored me to do something I have never done, which was skipped forward to see if the book was going to get interesting. I have an hour and a half left with little hope... the performance is probably what kept me from totally trashing the book as it was excellent. Just know that it is about a big chest, a wooden one that loves gore...

In The Waste, every fantasy creature, fairytale demon, or mythological monster exists. From orcs, to neriads, ogres, trolls, wraiths, elves, harpies, and even beastmen. They all exist, and all despise humankind. In the ruins of the west and east coasts, new governments have arisen. With new jobs. Vince is a Ranger, a profession whose sole job duty is surviving in the waste, and taking missions from the Ranger Guild. Be it courier services, escorts, or simply exploring tombs and cities.

I postponed getting this book because of the awful cover and not so great title, now I am glad I finally got to it as it is a great adventure story about the post-apocalypse United States, but done in a very imaginative way as I am usually not a huge fan of post-apocalypse books. Surprised me that it caught my attention to the point that I ordered the next two books. #tagsgiving, #sweepstakes #monsters, #romance, #adventure

But Alaria has a mind of her own. When she’s not playfully seducing Ian and then driving him crazy, she’s plotting revenge against shadowy figures from her past.

Faced with writing college papers, prepping for tests, and teaching testy witches, Declan O'Carroll has enough on his plate. Not to mention the magical withdrawal of leaving his very own magical kingdom behind on Fairie. But when he and his friends are attacked from creatures out of folklore and fable, it seems the Queens of Summer and Winter aren't done with him yet.

I hate writing reviews but Mr. Conroe's new book has driven me back to start reading the series for the third time... something I would never do. Als, hate how he ended the ook with a couple of loose bends I care about... the villain not so much.
I have been reading sci-fi/fantasy for over half a century and The Demon Accords is on the level of Asimov and Heinlein, only better. If this series never ended I won't be upset. Mr. Conroe should just keep writing as I am now waiting for book number 14.

With Declan O'Carroll on Fairie and Chris Gordon on Earth, what could go wrong? Try everything. Scheming elves, deadly zombies, killer goblins, flaming dragons, and dirty diapers. With a growing, insidious threat to Earth, Chris and Tanya race to save lives while Declan, Stacia, and friends work just as hard to save their own lives on an alien world, far removed from the comforts and safety of home. Only together will they overcome the odds. But, come on, with this team, maybe the odds should look out.

The reviews for this book are great, but I find the story very slow and just a touch above dull so that I did not abandon the novel. The narrator is excellent the book, not so much.
