My Top 10 Books of 2014

January 1, 2015


Most of my favorite books in 2014 are Fantasy. My top read though is the Rosales Saga, a series of five historical and political novels, which trace five generations of two families, namely the Samsons (poor farmers) and the Asperri (wealthy mestizos) through Spanish and American periods in the History of the Philippines up until the pre-Martial Law Period in the 1970s. It's a gripping read that anyone who likes Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet will appreciate. The Rosales Saga is written by Filipino National Artist F. Sionil Jose.

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni

December 17, 2014


In the pages of archives they are wondrous, perilous and magnificent. Strong but weak, wanting love, needing to be a part of the world even if they had to turn their backs on heaven. But in chapters where we see them, so to speak, in the flesh, experience the way they truly think, speak and act, their glamour quickly falls away, revealing only shallow, petty souls. Not so magnificent after all.

Witchblade: Demons by Mike Baron

November 26, 2014


Second volume of a trilogy and part of the Witchblade franchise consisting of graphic novels and a TV series, Demons can be read as a stand-alone in my opinion. I am introduced to police detective Sara Pezzini who has been living for years with the Witchblade, a mystical metal that transforms into armor and weapon depending on need. She wears this artifact like a bracelet. It seems to be sentient and seems to attract the weird and supernatural. Since Sara acquired the Witchblade, she has had to deal with unusual cases one after the other.
