Edge by M.E. Kerr

I often have difficulty with reading short stories, especially when they are gathered together in an anthology. I like my fiction meaty; massive tomes are my bread and butter.

Kerr, an author whose early works were considered ground-breaking for […]

Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

To say I was excited about Fool’s Assassin would be a complete understatement. I have been a massive fan of Robin Hobb’s The Realm of the Elderlings saga for years.

Angelfall was a massive success which seemed to take the book blogosphere by storm. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the sequel especially since the first book ended with a colossal cliff-hanger. But the real question is does […]

The Devil’s Reprise by Karina Halle

The Devil’s Reprise is the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Devil’s Metal, a book which managed to both thrill me and chill me to my very core; the blending of scares and emotional gut-punches making it one of my favourite reads of this year. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Devil’s Reprise with some trepidation – I loved the first book so much I feared it would never live up to […]
