So on Kindle the second book in the Half-orc series was only a dollar or so and after reading the first I decided to get the second. This book added a plethora of characters that sometimes enhanced and sometimes detracted from the story. The new love interest of the evil brother was a fantastic character but the troupe of adventurers was a difficult sell. In this book Dalglish really began to use modern vernacular in an epic fantasy which is difficult to pull off and I feel he failed to do so. The modern cursing distracted me from the story. Overall though the story advanced, there was some good conflict and some good exchanges. The characters were sometimes very believable and other times I feel he forced things that felt unnatural. Yet for the price, it was fine. Perhaps it is even better than my own writing. It is hard for me to know.

I’ve made a command decision to finally post everything on one blog rather than split everything into three separate blogs. It was a bit silly to begin with and with me trying to be a real writer and be as efficient as possible so I don’t need to maintain 3 blogs. One is probably enough. […]
The roads stretch on and on all around, Dry and hot for miles not a single sound. Thoughts bounce in the skull with much speed, Contemplating the most current and basic need. Don’t halt the inevitable journey for long, Soon tired ears will fill with lovely song. Keep treading and the body will always reach, […]
Energy cold, pure and full of potential, Is in this world deathly essential. Energy makes our fast moving cars go, Our tractors for our fields sow, Our powerful planes soar through the heavens, Our ships sail through the seas of seven. Still the most important fuel comes from the heart. Strong legs can take a […]
Little boys little boys, why are you awake? Could you do your dad a favor, and sleep until 8? Little boys little boys, what is it you are doing? Is there really something so important, that you are pursuing? Little boys little boys, could you at least make some coffee? Maybe even teach yourselves, to […]
It’s been a while Since you’ve hurt me this badly It was just a matter of time sadly When I needed you, you weren’t here You were out with friends drinking beer And more? How will I ever know? I guess it wasn’t even that long ago That you blew me off and blew someone […]

Like most parents, I would do just about anything for my kids. I also tend to back them up whenever they are having a hard time, as long as they are behaving properly. My ten year old is a bit of a handful. She is very bright and gets bored easily and loves to chat, […]
I recently have been wondering to myself what exactly it means to be male anymore. For myself but also for my boys and for my male students. The image of masculinity has been challenged and changes so many times that I don’t even know what it means which is ironic because we are now encouraged […]
