The Adventures of Rustle and Eddy – Joseph R. Lallo

The 8th book in ‘The Book of Deacon’ series.   Although it isn’t actually part of the main series.

A genuine stand alone book that can be enjoyed either with or without the main series, and vice versa.   It just so happens that this story happens in the same world as ‘The Book of Deacon’ series.

So what’s it about?   Well, to begin, it’s mostly a children’s story, and if you have any children who like things like fairies and mermaids then i’m sure they’ll love you to read them this story.

Essentially, a fairy ends up getting snatched from the shore by a merman and dragged off under the sea for a rather big and exciting adventure.   What more can a child ask from a story?

And even if you’re not a child and just including this book because you’re reading ‘The Book of Deacon’ as a whole series like i am, this is a nice fun book to read.   After all the heaviness of ‘The Battle of Verrel’ and the end of the war, it’s nice to have a book like this to take a breather from the main series before diving back in for the second half.   It really is a great, half time, refreshment read.

So, to sum up, a nice easy read, which i think would be great for children either for reading themselves or being read to.   The characters are enjoyable, well written, fun, and keep you on their side all the way through.

And now i dive straight back into the main series with ‘The Redemption of Desmeres’.

Dune: The Gateway Collection – Frank Herbert

One of the greatest ever sci-fi series ever written.

The Battle of Verril – Joseph R. Lallo

The 7th book of ‘The Book of Deacon’ series, which essentially ends the first half of the series.   Yes, 7 books are just the first half, we’ve got it all to do again to finish the series.   So what was book 7 like?

Well, it was a bit of a roller coaster, and then some.   A relentless, none stop, too and fro between The D’Karon and The Chosen.   We’ve been informed several times that one of The Chosen isn’t going to survive this battle, so we kind of know the rest are, but it’s what’s going to be left of the world after they survive that is the question.   We also know that this is only the end of the first half of the series, so obviously something of The D’Karon is also going to survive as well, but as we don’t know exactly what The D’Karon is, or are, we don’t know much on what or who is going to survive.

It’s all pretty big, epic fantasy, and while i’m not big into all the fighting stuff, i still find it really enjoyable.   Well written, easy to follow, with great characters on both sides of the conflict.   You can really lose yourself for a couple of months in this series.

The next book is ‘The Adventures of Rustle and Eddy’, which, although set in the same world, isn’t part of the conflict and serves as a nice palate cleanser after all those nasty battles before we dive back into the next half proper.

Also available in ‘The Book of Deacon Anthology’.

Meeting of the Mas – Joseph R. Lallo

Just as i was about to start ‘The Battle of Verrel’ Joseph released this month’s Patreon short story.   So i thought i may as have this as a little inbetweeny before diving back into the universe of Deacon.

I was really quite excited about getting to read a book with all 4 instances of Ma having a meeting as i can’t get enough of Ma, the more the merrier.

My only complaint… I wanted sooo much more of all the Mas.   I really do think they deserve their very own full length novel or even a dedicated trilogy.

But it’s a good little short and a good little inbetweeny while we await the next Big Sigma novel.

So how do you get it?

It’s currently only available to Joseph’s Patreon supporters.   Sign up today and get some book’s, support our favourite independent writer and keep on keeping it real against the big corporate nasty publishing houses who want to control everything we read.   Independent writers are well worth supporting, me thinks.
