Expected by his enemies to die the miserable death of a military slave, Kaladin survived to be given command of the royal bodyguards, a controversial first for a low-status “darkeyes.” Now he must protect the king and Dalinar from every common peril as well as the distinctly uncommon threat of the Assassin, all while secretly

The Flash – ‘Into the Void’ – Season 6, Episode 1: TV Review

POSSIBLE SPOILERS My Rating: 1/5 That was the most boring episode of TV I’ve watched this year. The only reason there is 1 start rather than 0 is because the show did include a small amount of setup for the rest of the season. The new villain looks interesting, but seems to have similar motives

Titans – ‘Aqualad’ – Season 2, Episode 4: TV Review

SPOILERS ahead! My Rating: 4/5 I really enjoyed this episode. I know that flashback episodes are just fillers and some people hate them, but some flashback episodes add a lot to the story. We finally know how personal the fight of this season is. Deathstroke is the reason the Titans fell apart the first time,

Stop Telling George R. R. Martin to Hurry Up with ‘The Winds of Winter’

Recently, I have been reading comments on Goodreads below George R.R.
