Book Review: ‘The Wyvern’s Spur’ by Kate Novak and Jeff Grubb

It’s interesting how many Star Wars authors have come over from the Realms: Elaine Cunningham, Troy Denning, Paul S. Kemp, Drew Karpyshyn, R.A. Salvatore, Christie Golden. Jeff Grubb is also no exception. Before writing Scourge, he wrote several Forgotten Realms novels with his wife, Kate Novak. The first one was Azure Bonds, a fun fantasy story and part of The Finder’s Stone Trilogy.

The Wyvern’s Spur is the second book in that trilogy, but surprisingly, it has little to do with the previous book and is a great standalone story in itself. Even more surprisingly, it’s a superior book to the first. If you’re looking for a great fantasy story to escape in, this one is well worth checking out. Click here to read our full review.

New Release: ‘The Silver Dream’ by Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves

The Silver Dream is out today. Written by Michael and Mallory Reaves, this sci-fi story is the sequel to InterWorld.

After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey Harker and his fellow InterWorld freedom fighters are now on a mission to maintain peace between the rival powers of magic and science who seek to control all worlds.

When a stranger named Acacia somehow follows Joey back to InterWorld’s base, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she’s from—or how she knows so much about InterWorld.

Dangerous times lie ahead for Joey and the mission. There’s a traitor hidden among them, and if Joey has any hope of saving InterWorld, the multiverse, and the mission, he’s going to have to rely on his wits—and, just possibly, on the mysterious Acacia Jones.

With a story conceived by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves and written by Michael and Mallory Reaves, this mind-bending follow-up to the exciting science fiction novel InterWorld is a compelling fantasy adventure through time and space, in which the future depends on a young man who is more powerful than he realizes.
