The Gray Ranger: Unforgiven by Adam Bolander


Tassendile is a country where magic and firearms are used side by side, humans exist beside bizarre creatures, and the four moons grant people incredible powers. For two thousand years, Vashiil, the malevolent Black Moon, has been imprisoned in the Graylands. It is the job of the Gray Rangers to patrol this cursed dimension and ensure that it and its minions never escape. They have only one law: never fall to Vashiil’s temptation. Never use its power. Kulgan was found guilty of that sin, and has been on the run from justice ever since. Now, after years of exile, the kidnapped daughter of a powerful governor may be able to give his life meaning again. Spoiled and petulant, the young lady Adlis is so desperate to get home that she will accept help from anyone—even someone like Kulgan.

No title

By JohnCalliganWrites, author of Wayfaring Princess

May 1, 2019: This is a pretty interesting story. I always liked the genre of anthropomorphic animals (TMNT, usagi yojimbo) and I think the struggle is getting them to look at one another the way they would, if they were real, rather than as re-skinned humans. I think the writer succeeds in this, so if you’re a fan of the genre, this one is worth checking out.

The premise for being in the desert was pretty funny. Adlis has a lot of depth, which [more . . .]

A Fishhook Hides Within

By ElliottThomasStaude, author of Mourners, Abednego, Persistence

Feb 18, 2019: After first stumbling into this work, initial impressions suggested fairly typical fantasy centered on gunslingers instead of knights. This was an oversimplification.

First, criticisms.

Typos. How DARE anyone publish a work with “it’s” instead of “its”!? Some room for improvement here, but as a result of mistakes instead of categorically bad grammar.

Discrepancies of details. For example, at one point a character confesses [more . . .]
