★★★★☆
Liked. Future books will be read.
★★★☆☆
So-so. Future books may be read.

★☆☆☆☆
Hated. Future books will not be read.
Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay
Under Heaven #1
★★★★★
I was a bit disappointed by the last Kay novel, but this one is a return to form. I love how well we marinate in the culture; not a lot happens, but a lot happens. The political machinations were a fun departure from the normal Kay experience of a character out of their element, though of course the protagonist here can mostly claim that to be the case.
The Will of the Many by James Islington
Hierarchy #1
★★★★★
Solid, unpredictable, interesting world building and plot. An absolute joy of a novel and a great introduction to a new series.
Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay★★★☆☆
A fun but minor side story in the Fionavar Tapestry world. Happy to enjoy it, but a little outside of the things I find most satisfying in a Kay novel: a plot that lasts longer than a few days. Felt a lot more stretched out than it needed to be, and I never really doubted where the ending was going to be.
Empire of the Damned by Jay Kristoff
Empire of the Vampire #2
★★★★☆
The world is so rich and interesting, and the added viewpoint really helps sell the expanded world. I wish I could say I was surprised by the ending, but it was projected from the beginning and without it the next book wouldn’t be possible.
The Last Light of the Sun by Guy Gavriel Kay★★★★☆
After reading several of Kay’s novels in a row, this one felt like the rare miss. I enjoyed the story and world building, but it didn’t feel like I built up or resolved anything. It was kind of a glimpse into the life, not really a well-unified epic story. I did enjoy the long-term impact of The Sarantine Mosaic in some side conversation of characters in the book.
Lord of Emperors by Guy Gavriel Kay
Sarantine Mosaic #2
★★★★★
The back half of this novel really kept me on my toes; I couldn’t predict at all where we were going, and I loved it. As I’m finding more and more reading his back catalog, Kay’s ability to pull at emotional threads is unmatched; I’m sympathizing with the protagonists and antagonists alike!
Sailing to Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay
Sarantine Mosaic #1
★★★★★
I’m finding the best part of the author’s writing is the room to breathe and establish ideas and inferences myself without being bashed over the head with the conclusion. From start to finish the first of this two-part series let me soak up the rich world-building and amusing characters. The time-jumps were a bit unexpected, but helped set the stage, and I can’t believe I moderately care about chariot racing.
A Song for Arbonne by Guy Gavriel Kay★★★★★
Somehow the ending of this book made me truly feel for a side character we spent absolutely no time on. A wonderful look at decades-long cascading effects in a truly interesting setting and story.
The Culture Code by Daniel Coyle★★☆☆☆
Full of tried-and-true retellings of the stories you’d expect, I felt like you could read Skunkworks or Creativity, Inc., and walk away with a better impression of the effective performance of some of the referenced companies.
The Darkest Road by Guy Gavriel Kay
Fionavar Tapestry #3
★★★★★
Great resolution to the trilogy. It feels like every character got a great wrap-up, some happier than others, and the consistent threads throughout finalized wonderfully. Couldn’t put it down the last half or so.
The Wandering Fire by Guy Gavriel Kay
Fionavar Tapestry #2
★★★★★
Getting a bit deeper into the Arthurian connections now. Definitely enjoying the series vs. book plot separation; doesn’t feel like too many intentionally broken plotlines. Love the plot twists and turns and the constant progression forward on top of the worldbuilding!
The Summer Tree by Guy Gavriel Kay
Fionavar Tapestry #1
★★★★★
Rarely any small plot points that left me dreading their resolution; always forward momentum on the plot, even when time-jumping back to see another perspective. Fun world-building, great characters, but some really tough emotions at the end (as often in a Kay book).
A Veil of Spears by Bradley P. Beaulieu
Song of Shattered Sands #3
★★★★☆
Consistently entertaining and unpredictable. Continuing the world building behind the Kings is interesting, and the different side-characters didn’t feel hollow. It does feel like the plot is elongated a bit too far, but I don’t mind.
System Collapse by Martha Wells
Murderbot Diaries #7
★★★★☆
Surprisingly difficult to jump back into this series. After orienting myself, I enjoyed the pace and the action – and always the worldbuilding – but the story felt like it ended before it began. Perhaps we’ve reached the end of where Murderbot can go.
