Saturday Stars – 14 April 2018 – Tenaka Khan

I feel like a total narcoleptic. I keep yawning a lot and all I wanna do is sleep, sleep, sleep. Add in my dilemma – at night I turn into an insomniac. Oh, boy. Talk about a quandary. I get to sleep in tomorrow, so it’s all good. πŸ™‚

For this Saturday, I’m playing Eenie, Meeny, Miny, Moe about which character to star. Then I looked over my list of previous stars and I was surprised that I haven’t featured my beloved Tenaka Khan yet. Continue reading “Saturday Stars – 14 April 2018 – Tenaka Khan”

I think I’m coming down with a cold. I can feel the sore throat and I’ve been sneezing. Ugh, I hate it when I get the flu. My brain feels like it’s stuffed with cotton. On the other hand, the best thing when you’re sick? You get to lie in bed and read. πŸ™‚

Well, on to positive thoughts – let’s get on with this Saturday meme, shall we? Who shall be my chosen Saturday Star this week?

I have so many favorite characters, which one to choose from? πŸ˜‰ Continue reading “Saturday Stars – 31 March 2018 – Waylander”

Book Review: The King Beyond The Gate (The Drenai Saga #10) – David Gemmell

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure

Review:

I was super nervous when I started The King Beyond The Gate. You see, I read this book 10 years ago and the hero, Tenaka Khan was my first experience of a larger than life warrior. I absolutely loved him. So I had all these expectations and I started it with the worry, β€œWould this book be as amazing as it’d been the first time?” When I read it the first time, I was much younger and I worried that my older self wouldn’t be as impressed by Tenaka Khan as my younger self had been. I didn’t want a bitter disillusionment. Continue reading “Book Review: The King Beyond The Gate (The Drenai Saga #10) – David Gemmell”

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Review:

We find Druss battling the Nadir on the walls of Dros Delnoch and his mind goes back to the past and the events which led to him fighting beside the Nadir. Druss’s search for his wife Rowena led him to become the lethal fighter he turned into, more comfortable with violence and death than a peaceful life.
