SPFBO II Semi-Finalists Update (by Mihir Wanchoo)

This post has been delayed for quite a while and for that I apologize to all the authors in my lot. With an infant, my wife and I have been truly strapped for time. It’s not an excuse but just the sole reason why I haven’t had much time to blog and do mini-reviews for all the books in my list. Previously I had selected the first semi-finalist over in my first update.

I’ve though selected six potential books from my lot and I hope to interview the authors as well do a proper review for the finalist I choose among the six semi-finalists:
 - Powers of the Six by Kristal Shaff 
 - Storm Without End by R.J. Blain 
 - Hondus Pointe by R. D. Henderson 
 - The Moonlight War by S.K.S Perry
 - The Dungeoneers by Jeffrey Russell
 - Nolander by Becca Mills

I would also like to point out 2 books which narrowly missed out on making the cut: The Tree of Souls by Katrina Archer & Vacui Magia by L. S. Johnson. They were both intriguing however I had to choose only 6 titles. I will try my best to review them and interview the authors as well.

Congratulations to the six FBC semifinalists and my commiserations to the remaining authors. These books were chosen because they all delivered interesting characters, a terrific story, humor (in some cases), romance in others & had just the right tinge of darkness as well. Overall they held my attention throughout and I wanted to read all the way to see how the story ended.

That was a crucial point for me and so these six titles made themselves shine above everyone else. Keep in mind though that this is just my opinion and some other reviewers might like other books than the ones which I’ve selected. I would like to wish the remaining 24 authors all best of luck for their writing career and future books and now on to the semi-finalists. Thank you for your patience with me and congratulations once again. I’ll be contacting you all soon with interview questions.
