The Beast of the Cave — Joseph R. Lallo

The Beast of the Cave, written by Joseph R Lallo.Last time i counted this was the 11th book in The Book of Deacon series, cronologoically speaking; but, that’s at the time of writing this, Joseph may have thrown one or two more books into the mix since then.

Anyway, a really good novella telling us what Mott got up to after The D’Karon Apprentice, and best read as soon as you’ve finished that and before you read The Crescents.

One thing Joseph really excels at is writing cute, little creature characters into his stories, and even the most motley, messed up, creatures — like Mott — should be able to get a Lallo makeover once in a while.   Not that Mott will ever be as cute as Squee, but just don’t go judging a monster by its…

…well, whatever it is one judges monsters by these days:  every freaky, patchwork monster deserves a second chance.

Wasteland — Joseph R. Lallo

A fun post-apocalyptic short story.   Nothing gorey or nasty, i would even say it’s suitable for children.

Originally only available to Joseph’s Patreon subscribers but now also in the collection Paradoxes and Dragons.

Halfax — Joseph R. Lallo

Another addition to The Book of Deacon series.

This novella takes up the story after the events of Jade when Myn has gotten a little older, and i admit that i did have hopes that we may have found some of the answers to the questions that Jade had left festering in my mind: alas it was not to be.

Answers aside though, it’s a well written novella set in one of my favourite series, so i’m not complaining too much about being kept in the dark.   I’m sure Joseph will get around to filling in all the blanks for us in some future books.
