Synopsis: Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, a hero, the Chosen One, was born . . . and so begins every fairy tale ever told.
This is not that fairy tale.
There is a Chosen One, but he is unlike any One who has ever been Chosened.
And there is a faraway kingdom, but you have never been to a magical world quite like the land of Pell.
There, a plucky farm boy will find more than he’s bargained for on his quest to awaken the sleeping princess in her cursed tower. First there’s the Dark Lord who wishes for the boy’s untimely death . . . and also very fine cheese. Then there’s a bard without a song in her heart but with a very adorable and fuzzy tail, an assassin who fears not the night but is terrified of chickens, and a mighty fighter more frightened of her sword than of her chain-mail bikini. This journey will lead to sinister umlauts, a trash-talking goat, the Dread Necromancer Steve, and a strange and wondrous journey to the most peculiar “happily ever after” that ever once-upon-a-timed.

Corey: What better way to cap off our (almost) first year of blogging than with a year-end TOP TEN list?!!? Who doesn’t love a good list, Holly?! A MONSTER!!! That’s who. I believe we’ve read & reviewed 40 books for the blog this year (I’m not counting again, but it’s 40…ish), but these 10….these were fated to be on this list. I think we only had one or two differences when we each made our lists, no? (Tower Lord by Anthony Ryan would be my honorable mention!!) GAHH!!! We read so many awesome books this year, Holly!!! Can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for The Grimdragons!!!
Holly: Lists! ALL THE LISTS! Although admittedly, I break out into a cold sweat when trying to narrow down all the things I love into a tiny numbered list though. I CANNOT BE CONTAINED! Our first year of blogging.. wow. The poor blog has been neglected as of late what with distractions, holidays, LIFE! But we plan on resurrecting the beast in the new year. Maybe give it an overhaul & make this clunky ship soar again! We both love a list, so this needed to happen! A top ten.. out of all the amazing books we’ve read this year. This list is pretty fucking wicked! There is a lot to love here. We literally had one difference when comparing. My honorable mention was for Emperor of Thorns. I just can’t shake Jorg! I love that series so goddamn much!! It’s been a fantastic year for reading. I am so excited to see what badass books we get to in 2018! LET’S DO THE DAMN THING!!!

But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins—and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters. Continue reading “Phasma – Delilah S. Dawson”
