What is Kobo Super Points?
Dominic, the youngest, though more scholarly than Lewis, is also ruthlessly ambitious and quite possibly psychotic. The middle son, Viktor, viewed by some to be the least of three evils, is merely a headstrong ladies' man Our story opens as a cadre of courtiers from Castle Midnight, Redhart's royal seat, waylay an itinerant actor known as "The Great Jordan" as he's closing down his one-man show for the night in a remote northern village.
Jordan, once a highly esteemed and much-sought-after thespian at the top of his profession, has fallen on hard times. The Redhart entourage makes him an offer he finds impossible to refuse: impersonate Prince Viktor at certain mandatory gatherings at Castle Midnight while the real Viktor recovers from a mysterious illness that has rendered him temporarily unfit to participate in public life. In return, Jordan will be paid 10, ducats: a sum that blinds the normally circumspect actor to the risks inherent in the proposition.

However, his bedazzlement begins to wear off as soon as he has accepted the job, starting with the unsettling glamour spell he undergoes in order to become an exact physical replica of Viktor, and intensifying when the party arrives at Castle Midnight and Jordan begins to get a true sense of all that is afoot in the royal court. Castle denizens are encountering increasingly frequent outbreaks of the Unreal -- supernatural manifestations ranging from the benignly amusing to the horrifically lethal.
The morass of political allegiances, tricky in any royal household, is further complicated by these Unreal encroachments, and by the fact that several among Jordan's new circle of acquaintances are not what they seem. As Castle Midnight heats up and approaches the boiling point, the Great Jordan must make some unexpected choices and draw on heretofore unsuspected resources.

- Blood and Honor (Forest Kingdom, #2) by Simon R. Green?
This early work of Simon R. Green, which predates the Deathstalker and Nightside series for which he is more well known, is a rather run-of-the-mill sword-and-sorcery tale.
Blood and Honor
Character development is largely perfunctory, and the straight-ahead progression of the plot seems unnecessarily padded with irrelevant elements thrown in along the way a spectral dog, a lost ghost boy looking for his mother, etc. The full-cast treatment and copious use of sound effects punch up the story a good bit, however, and help to hold the listener's interest. We sometimes also highlight other anticipated releases like DLCs, betas, big updates and so on. The start of was as exciting as the closing days of — if not more so — with some major releases such as Kingdom Hearts 3, Onimusha: Warlords, Resident Evil 2, Ace Combat 7 and more.
February successfully one-upped January by basically turning into an early November.

Plenty of smaller gems found a spot in February, too, such as Dirt Rally 2. Rage 2, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC being the obvious, early candidates.
As expected, E3 month has been slow for new releases. July has been one of the most uneventful months this year so far.
Beyond that, July brought a few re-releases on Switch and other platforms. Not too many games were interested in keeping us indoors this August. The late release season officially kicks off in September, and things are looking especially busy. A number of anticipated sequels to big games, not to mention meaty new expansions, all drop in September.
