Hex by: Thomas Olde Heuvelt

HEXHEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am not huge on horror novels or novellas, the former because I just am not a fan of the genre and the later due to me reading really fast and not wanting to spend cash on something that I will read in a day. That being said, this year I have read more horror and more novellas than I have ever since probably high school, and I am an old, old, ancient man.

Hex....freaked me the hell out, I am probably off horror for the rest of this year. It is an exceptionally well written book in my opinion, and it is not a in your face horror tale, but it sneaks around you and scares you from multiple angles and makes you cringe and cry like the little bitch you are. (I'm not scared..honest)

If you like horror, you'll eat this up and I have no problem recommending it, me? I am off horror for a while (I'm notttttttt fucking scared!) whimper..

Nightglass (Pathfinder Tales) by: Liane Mercel

Nightglass (Pathfinder Tales)Nightglass by Liane Merciel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am a weird cat, I am one of these dudes who although I have never played a game of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, etc and so on, I totally would sit down and read the guides to the games. The worlds interest me to no end, the background, characters and lore I eat with a spoon even if I never touch the games.

A few weeks ago, I got the pathfinder adventure game app for my tablet, and lo and behold, that got me into the game and I stumbled upon at the local thrift store a series of the Pathfinder tales books, this being the first one I read.

I was impressed, it wasn't just a super tale, but it was solid, kind of dark, fun, well told fantasy. The main character I liked, sort of a good guy molded in a bad place. Even though I could tell where the tale was going for the most part, I did NOT mind the ride.

So, I have read three of my stash so far, and if you ever feel the desire to read some solid fantasy, Nightglass and Nightblade (basically the next book with the main character) is a good time.
