"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 - "Otherworld Prophecies: Starving Blades"

"Otherworld Prophecies: Starving Blades" by resident Badass Author, Natasha A. Wetzel
~As Reviewed by Badass Author, Michael Loring.

"Starving Blades is the first book in Author Natasha Wetzel's series Otherworldly Prophecies, telling the tale of Angelique "Angel" Le'Count; a half-blood angel who carries out the work of God by doing battle with the many foes before him...or, at least, he used to.

Angel has fallen into despair after the abrupt departure of his girlfriend Kira. He has turned to the bottle to ease his woes, favoring vodka over actual resolution. He has lived for centuries, but nothing prepared him for a broken heart, not even his War Spirit Sarre who was part of the problem. After six months he becomes fed up with his deteriorating life and goes to find Kira in hopes of winning her back.

What he encounters was much more than he bargained for.

I don't want to give too much away from this book, because there is so much in it that deserves to be discovered. Natasha Wetzel's style of writing is a unique one, and brilliant beyond most others. Her characters are fascinating and relatable on different levels, even if a few are maniacs who are obsessed with cookies. She creates a world where mankind is just a roommate to all the other creatures/beings that are out there. Angels, Demons, Half-Breeds, Were-Animals (or "Shift Shaman") and possibly so much more. The details are so intricate and expansive your head might spin at first, but with Natasha's writing style you very quickly catch on and grow eager to learn more of this new world full of fascinating characters and interesting storylines.

Angel is a very deep character, cynical to a fault, trying to redeem his alcoholic ways in order to win back the love of his very long life, he is definitely a main character worth following. You end up caring for this character more than you expected early on. I personally felt bad for him throughout the first half of the novel, when everything was just in shambles around him and he was fighting desperately to piece it all back together. I rooted for him, and I was not disappointed with how the book ended.
Deeply philosophical, excellently executed, and terrifically written, Starving Blades is destined to go places!

Five out of Five stars!"
