Review Blog – Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

Where to start with this book? For those familiar with Robin Hobb’s Fitz books, this will need no introduction. It’s the 3rd series of books featuring our boy Fitz, and the emotional rollercoster he keeps dragging us on.

Review Blog – Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft

  Arm of the Sphinx is the 2nd book in Josiah Bancroft’s Books of Babel series, following fairly directly from Senlin Ascends.

Review Blog – Beyond Redemption by Michael R. Fletcher

This was an interesting one! The general premise is that madness (delusions) become real. Belief shapes reality. So if someone believes they can control fire… they CAN control fire.

Review Blog – The Guns of Ivrea by Clifford Beal

So The Guns of Ivrea is set in a small watery section of a fantasy world where the one faith (very like Christianity in many ways) has seen the old gods all but extinguished, and has sold prejudice against merfolk to the masses. The book follows Acquel, trainee monk with a side helping of bland;…
