Review: The Iron Jackal by Chris Wooding

The Iron Jackal is the third book in the Tales of the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding.


Everything is finally looking up for Darian Frey and the crew of the Ketty Jay. They’re heroes now, heroes who fought alongside the Century Knights to save common people from Manes. People are no longer after their heads. They’re no longer broke, the Ketty Jay’s all fixed up, and the crew actually functions like a team.

Review: The Black Lung Captain by Chris Wooding


The Black Lung Captain is the second novel in the Tales of the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding. I raced through this one in a day and a half, so that’s an indication of how much I liked it.


Captain Darian Frey is down on his luck. His aircraft is old, rusty, and the engines are only being held together by the craft of Silo, while his crew is squabbling and broke. How he will keep the Ketty Jay in the air and his crew fed is a question that keeps playing in his mind. Enter captain Grist, who want Frey and his crew to accompany him on an expedition of sorts.

Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine

I’m just going to come out and say it: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my favourite game of all the games I’ve played so far since I got my PS4. I have the strange penchant to start with the third installment of game series (God of War, Diablo, Dragon Age), and this time it was no different. I never played the previous games, but I owned The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, and I read that immediately after starting up the game. I bought this game at the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, and though I finished the main quest of Wild Hunt somewhere in 2017, it wasn’t until yesterday that I finished the last of the two DLC.
