Short Book Reviews

Paragaea by Chris Roberson - I very much enjoyed Chris Roberson's X-men novel, The Return, which was the best X-men story I read this past year; much better than the current comics. This book was engaging and I liked the basic idea of an updated "planetary romance" and the world of Paragaea was filled with cool sense of wonder stuff. But aside from the Dorothy- trying-to-get-home-from-Oz like story line I never felt the cast of characters was under any real threat, and I felt like I was reading a young adult novel. Disappointing but I'm still looking forward to reading The Dragon's Nine Sons.
