"We created this blog as a hub; the nerve center of our collective social-networking, homepages, books and distribution.

This is a place for our unyielding, genuine selves to pool together as many badass books and as much information about as many rock-star writers as we can.

We've done this to give readers, fans, players, and watchers of badass entertainment the badass material they need...

We do not fit the stereotypical author profiles.
We like heavy metal, epic movies, video games, and high octane, in-your-face, full throttle materials.
Many of us have a dark mindset, others are just wild and scattered, and some may or may not need an attitude adjustment.
But that's just the way we like it.
Raw, real, harsh to some, but an epic home for our ilk.

Some of us you may not have discovered until the moment you set your digital foot into this space, but we have bound together a group to prove that quality writing isn't restricted to genre-favoritism and big-publishing.

Our philosophy:
If you like a Thriller written by a badass, chances are, if that badass wrote a Fantasy, you'd like it too. So, if another badass with similar a mindset wrote a fantasy, we believe you may just enjoy that too.

Genre is now irrelevant in this new publishing world.

Instead, we take a good long look at the people behind these stories, and suggest you read them based on who they are; not what genre they write.
Because a badass book is a badass book no matter where it lands on the shelves!
This is because their authors share badass interests and have similar mindsets...Mindsets like your own!

Many of us aren't even "just writers," but artists in a variety of forms.

Here, you fans of the badass slice of life we all thoroughly enjoy, will have a source for new and unexpected originality, and a powerful, ever-expanding collection of soulful stories by badass people.

But more than just books; you will find more about the artists themselves than you might find in other blogs.
We give you their social media, home pages, distribution and the like, so you can connect with some of the most accessible, badass writers out there."

A Badass Reviews - "Epic: Legacy"

"Epic: Legacy" by resident Badass Author, Justin Osborne

~As Reviewed by Badass Author, Michael Loring

"EPIC: Legacy is the first book in Author Justin Osborne’s EPIC series, and begins the journey of protagonist, Deacon McTaggart.

The world is facing a crisis. The men are disappearing with no explanation to be given and the population is dwindling rapidly.
Already a few billion have gone. Everyone is scared, as they should be.
Deacon’s mother is given word by his uncle that they need to join him in Scotland to stay safe from what may come of this catastrophe.
When Deacon arrives he discovers that his uncle knows a lot more about this issue than anybody else.

Evon McTaggart, Deacon’s uncle, is a hero from another world called Avalon.

Dragons and faeries and magic are things of common in Avalon, the rules there different from on Earth.
Evon reveals that a strange new creature called Ubaru’ud is behind the strange disappearances, as he is for the inevitable destruction of Avalon.
It’s Evon’s duty to save as many from the destruction as possible, but due to circumstances, he is unable to do so.

Deacon, in disbelief of all this new information, wanders off and runs head first into a faerie, the only creature that can lead people between the
two worlds. She’s been missing, thus why Evon could not save anyone from Avalon. Deacon, through an accident, ends up falling through the portal
with the faerie and injures her, trapping him in the doomed world.
Time is running out, and he has to hurry if he wants to get home and save the people of Avalon from their fate.

Full of fantasy and magic, EPIC: Legacy is an enthralling read.
Deacon is a very relate-able character, stumbling a bit through this new world before catching himself and trying his best to adjust.
I personally like him for his affinity for good music.

The only reason at all that I give this book a four star rating other than a SOLID five is due to a few editing errors I could not help but notice.
Overlooking this though; this book was brilliant and well done.

I seriously recommend this book for all fantasy lovers!

Four out of Five stars!"
