[FTG] Nine Kings seen in Lightbringer

In the last month, I’ve had ample amount of time to finish reading The Broken Eye (Lightbringer #3) and digest everything in this great series.

[FTG] Snakes and Foxes seen in Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan

Part two from the first epic fantasy series I read. I believe I read the  The Eye of the World in 2000 and devoured the first 5 books in no time at all and needing to wait around for book 9 (Winter’s Heart) to be released. Now any WoT readers out there can tell you […]

Now this write-up is about one of the two games I’ve read of recently called Keschet, appearing […]
