Review Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Kings of the Wyld is fantastic, imaginative, and unique. One of the most impressive debuts I’ve read in a LONG time. So the premise of KotW is that it is set in a Dungeons & Dragons style world with humans and monsters living side by side and not really getting along too well. Oh, and … Read moreReview Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Review Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is a man with a formula. Luckily for us all, he knows the formula so damned well that he can use it to tell a compelling story in almost any genre. Skyward is the story of Spensa (which sounds far less pretentious when you just pronounce is Spencer), a young girl facing the … Read moreReview Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Dark, dangerous, and full of humour. This is how I like my grimdark. Chasing Graves is a dark book, where the world is a shit place, and it only gets shittier once you die. But there is humour to offset the oppression, and glimmers of something shiny underneath all the muck. This book is set … Read moreReview Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Review Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

Paternus: Wrath of Gods is book 2 in Dyrk Ashton’s Paternus trilogy, and to review it I first need to say a little something about book 1. In Paternus, Dyrk broke all the rules. He wrote in present tense, gave us an omnipotent perspective that head hops at an impressive rate, and exposits all over … Read moreReview Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

My Favourite 5 of 2018

I’m not a prolific reader. In fact most years I’m lucky if I make it through 2 books a month. But in 2018 I set myself the goal of reading more books, even if that meant listening to half of them. So as the year’s end draws near I have read 38 books! This might … Read moreMy Favourite 5 of 2018

Review Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding

Look, I’ve been a Chris Wooding fan for years now ever since I unwittingly stumbled across Retribution Falls. It was a fast paced, swashbuckling adventure with a gallery of rogues brought to life by truly excellent characterisation. So I quickly read everything else Chris had written and eagerly awaited more. The Ember Blade was a … Read moreReview Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding

Review Blog – We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

First off a little disclaimer. This book is entered into this year’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off) and is in BookNest’s group. While I am a judge for BookNest this year, this book was not in my list to judge. This is my own personal review.   I’m gonna start off by saying I … Read moreReview Blog – We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

Review Blog – Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

A book about manly men being angry at things! Oh, alright I’ll do a proper review. Promise of Blood starts with a bang and I must admit I really enjoyed it at the start. We join the story amid a revolution; ageing general (and very angry man) Tamas overthrows the monarchy and the aristocracy, and … Read moreReview Blog – Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

Review Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

X-Men meets The Running Man. (If you don’t know what The Running Man is, you should quickly go and familiarise yourself with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s back catalogue. Do it. Do it now!)   Superhero City: Ghoul is a fascinating look at superheroes in a corporate, capitalist America gone mad. It’s a world that’s all about the … Read moreReview Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

Review Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett

So after checking out the first Fabius Bile book in the 40k catalogue, I decided I wanted to try some others, and the Horus Heresy saga has always been interesting to me. So I asked a few friends and they came up with a reading list, somewhat predictably starting with book 1. This is the … Read moreReview Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett
