I prefer science fiction, fantasy, and horror without the spaceships, dragons, and zombies.

The Bookman (The Bookman Histories, #1)

The Bookman - Lavie Tidhar Although there were plenty of cool things going on in this book (a lot of things I liked quite a bit), and plenty of action scenes, I was never truly swept up in the adventure. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because the protagonist was more of a puppet than a character with any real agency. I do understand this fit thematically (chess, pawns, etc.), but it still may have contributed to my lack of investment. Will I read the next book in the series? Perhaps.
