Review Blog – Hero Forged by Josh Erikson

I have to admit, I’m not really into Urban Fantasy. It’s just not my cup of tea. I also don’t like a lot of humour in my books. A bit of gallows humour maybe, but that’s usually about it. I say this so I can impress upon you that this book was up against it. … Read moreReview Blog – Hero Forged by Josh Erikson

Review Blog – The Sword of Kaigen by M.L. Wang

Time for a preamble. I heard about this book earlier this year when a blogger I follow (that’s you, Petrik) claimed it was not only the best self published book he’d ever read, but also the best stand alone he’d ever read. This was high praise indeed so I snapped up a paperback and stuck … Read moreReview Blog – The Sword of Kaigen by M.L. Wang

Review Blog – Rage of Dragons (The Burning #1) by Evan Winter

What a fantastic start to a fresh new epic fantasy tale. So let’s start with this. The blurb says Rage of Dragons is Game of Thrones meets Gladiator. Well it’s very like Gladiator in many ways, but to say it’s anything like Game of Thrones is doing a disservice to both parties. This book is … Read moreReview Blog – Rage of Dragons (The Burning #1) by Evan Winter

Review Blog – Crowfall (Raven’s Mark #3) by Ed McDonald

An adrenaline-fueled ending to a fantastic series. A truly desolately hopeful fantasy. Crowfall is book 3 of Ed McDonald’s debut series, Raven’s Mark, and the final(?) journey of Ryhalt Galharrow. And what a journey it has been. Seeing the way Ed has developed the character across the trials and tribulations of these 3 books has … Read moreReview Blog – Crowfall (Raven’s Mark #3) by Ed McDonald

Book Review – God of Broken Things by Cameron Johnston

A fantastic conclusion to the duology and a great send off to mighty Edrin Walker. So the Age of Tyranny duology is undoubtedly all about Edrin Walker. He’s a thief, a magus, a tyrant, and an arsehole extraordinaire. He’s also charismatic and downright fun. God of Broken Things does exactly what it needs to as … Read moreBook Review – God of Broken Things by Cameron Johnston

Review Blog – The Traitor God (Age of Tyranny #1) by Cameron Johnston

The Traitor God is the story of Edrin Walker, a surly deviant of a magician who has spent the last ten years running away from a past he can’t quite remember. He’s fairly certain, however, that it has something to do with his murdering of a god. But when his best friend is killed and … Read moreReview Blog – The Traitor God (Age of Tyranny #1) by Cameron Johnston

Review Blog – The Hod King (Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft

I always find it difficult to review the third book in a trilogy. The review inevitably turns into a review of the series instead. Well, The Hod King is even tougher in many ways because it’s not the end. The series is a quadrilogy. As such, I’ve been sitting on the review for a few … Read moreReview Blog – The Hod King (Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft

Review Blog – Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

Priest of Bones is the story of Tomas Piety, a gangster conscripted and sent to war, only to return years later to find all his businesses have been taken over by other gangsters. But it’s more than that, a lot more. It’s the story of soldiers returning from a war they never wanted to fight, … Read moreReview Blog – Priest of Bones by Peter McLean

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
