    "Dune seems under-rated these days. Sure, we've had the mini-series and Lynch's movie on them, so that's pretty big, and there are the pop culture references, but the kids these days, they don't really know it. I repeat the mantra against fear every time I step out my door. Someday, I hope to become an omniscient sand worm, but that's likely one of the harder bucket list items."

    "Fimbulwinter is a cool take on bringing modern science to the medieval world and then passing it off as magic. This book is part of a great series that is about being a ruler and building a empire. The part that I really enjoyed about this book is the innovative use of magic via scientific knowledge and technology. Very engaging! I love the character development and the concept of traveling to a new world."

    "The author of this book is incredibly gifted with their unpredictability. Fantasy novels have been bland lately but with a book like this, you're kept on your toes. The main character starts off really strong and intelligent but by the end of this book when his wishes are completely carried out, he's a new person entirely for the better."

    "The book has potential but it seems too much like an RPG gamer fan fiction novel. I haven't read fanfiction since I was a teen and I'm also not a fan of gamer type RPG anything"
