Book Review – Sauron Defeated

Sauron Defeated is the 9th book in The Complete History of Middle-earth volume series and last book concerning The Lord of the Rings. This book is divided into three sections. The first section covers the writings regarding the ending of the epic tale of the Lord of the Rings. Here we get to read a […]

Book Review – Historia general de las Indias (Part 1)

Originally banned by the Spanish Crown, this is perhaps the very first book I’ve read that’s been officially banned for a large number of years. This book is a historical chronicle that many modern historians reference too, so I opted to read the work in its original Spanish form. Written in the 16th century, obviously […]

Book Review – Isabella: The Warrior Queen

I’ve been reading a ton of fantasy these last few years. This might change a little as I recently started a new project that requires a significant amount of Mexican and Spanish history knowledge. So I decided to first start reading about The Catholic Kings, in particularly Isabella. Queen Isabella I of Castile is undoubtedly […]

Book Review – Season of Storms

I’ve long awaited returning to what is arguably my favorite modern fantasy world (yes, in my humble opinion The Witcher universe is superior of that of A Song of Ice and Fire). As strange as it sounds, the primary reason why I didn’t read Season of Storms originally (English fan translation was available years before […]

Book Review – A Storm of Swords

The third novel in A Song of Ice and Fire, I feel this is the novel where “the plot thickens”. I say this because unlike when I read both A Game of Thrones or A Clash of Kings, I didn’t had to refer to any online wikis to understand the setting or plot of the […]

Book Review – The War of the Ring

In the War of the Ring we get read the time frame from the Battle of Hornburg up to Frodo’s capture in Cirith Ungol. This book is divided into three major parts: The Fall of Saruman The Ring Goes East Minas Tirith Being the book after The Treason of Isengard, The War of the Ring […]

Book Review – The Art of The Lord of the Rings

Unlike The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings did not had illustrations. In this book, you’ll read and see the many different illustrations, sketches, and notes that J.R.R. Tolkien drew and wrote pertaining to The Lord of The Rings. A significant amount of his original unpublished illustrations were related to maps and the geography of […]

Book Review – A Clash of Kings

A Clash of Kings is the sequel to A Game of Thrones. Like in A Game of Thrones, this epic story continues being told from the point-of-view of certain characters. We also get to read point-of-view chapters from new characters introduced in this book, as well as characters that were already introduced but were never […]

Book Review – Skyrim Art Book

I purchased this art book as part of a bundle that also included an Alduin statue, both of which were originally part of the Skyrim collectors edition. This is an art book in every sense of the word. It’s not a strategy guide, nor it isn’t a comprehensive introduction to the world of Skyrim. Instead […]
