Book Review – Sauron Defeated

Sauron Defeated is the 9th book in The Complete History of Middle-earth volume series and last book concerning The Lord of the Rings. This book is divided into three sections. The first section covers the writings regarding the ending of the epic tale of the Lord of the Rings. Here we get to read a […]

Triss Merigold Prime 1 Studio Statue

After just three months of it’s initial release, I finally got my third Witcher 3 statue from Prime 1 Studio. Unlike the Geralt and Eredin statues, the Triss Merigold statue is very simplistic (though not in a bad way). The Eredin statue took me well over 30 minutes to put it together, and even the […]

Angry final season Game of Thrones fans can Fuck Off

We’re on the eve of the grand finally of HBO’s Game of Thrones TV show, and unless you’ve been living under a rock these last two months, it is has been all over the place. Making the TV show and in my opinion more importantly, the entire universe of A Song of Ice and Fire, […]

Book Review – Historia general de las Indias (Part 1)

Originally banned by the Spanish Crown, this is perhaps the very first book I’ve read that’s been officially banned for a large number of years. This book is a historical chronicle that many modern historians reference too, so I opted to read the work in its original Spanish form. Written in the 16th century, obviously […]

Happy Tolkien Reading Day!

Today being the international Tolkien Reading Day, it’s difficult not to mention the upcoming Amazon Lord of the Rings television series. Given some of the type of YouTube channels I’m subscribed too (fantasy/book related), it’s been somewhat difficult for me to not see any news about this TV series. All of which I’ve completely ignored, […]

Book Review – Isabella: The Warrior Queen

I’ve been reading a ton of fantasy these last few years. This might change a little as I recently started a new project that requires a significant amount of Mexican and Spanish history knowledge. So I decided to first start reading about The Catholic Kings, in particularly Isabella. Queen Isabella I of Castile is undoubtedly […]

Book Review – Season of Storms

I’ve long awaited returning to what is arguably my favorite modern fantasy world (yes, in my humble opinion The Witcher universe is superior of that of A Song of Ice and Fire). As strange as it sounds, the primary reason why I didn’t read Season of Storms originally (English fan translation was available years before […]

Book Review – A Storm of Swords

The third novel in A Song of Ice and Fire, I feel this is the novel where “the plot thickens”. I say this because unlike when I read both A Game of Thrones or A Clash of Kings, I didn’t had to refer to any online wikis to understand the setting or plot of the […]
